this guy is one of the worst analyst at espn. yesterday, they were talking about the sugar bowl when someone brought up the fact that ohio state had 11 more takeaways than bama. cunningham didnt know that and acted amazed at that stat. between him and desmond howard, i dont know which one is worse.
I dont know. i think i need to watch it a few more times..................
why do these nfl teams keep recycling the same coaches over and over even when they suck?? ryan sucks, but then again look at the money they gave cutler...........................
i check out mgoblog from time to time and they are actually attacking anyone who is trying to pump the breaks on any harbaugh to um rumors. if harbaugh doesnt go to um, he will probably need to go into hiding. it would be in the BIGs best interest if they did sign harbaugh, but just for our amusement i hope it is schiano or some no name coach from the mac or aac. i will need to take the day off from work that day just to watch the meltdown.
If they dont get harbaugh.............good lord............i think they will end up with some coach that nobody has ever heard of or greg schiano. either way, ann arbor would explode.
dont see him coming back to the college level due to the recruiting requirements. i dont think i would want to travel all over the country and schmooze some teenager and his family. also, he hasnt won a super bowl in the nfl. dont think that his brother is not wearing that shiney super bowl ring to mom and pop harbaughs for the family christmas get together. some coaches were never meant to be in the nfl (spurrier, saban, etc.), but harbaugh is not one of them.
Championships are the measuring stick and the winner there is Bear Bryant with 6
Damn, that 2013 runner up trophy looks pathetic. might of well have given the team a certificate of participation.
and end up with each other.....................
Can't believe you left out perennial Coach of the Year candidiate/winner Kirk Ferentz and his fighting Hawkeyes as top contenders for the BIG West. Ferentz is building a juggernaut of mediocrity that will not be stopped.
I doubt there were any high profile coaches looking to take that job. Wisconsin is not a destination school for most. They are an old school smash mouth football team and that is not the "sexy" job right now. Even Saban has opened up the offensive playbook in order to compete. The only one who is staying with man-ball outside of the BIG is Arkansas. Eventually, once defenses catch up, I see a return to clock killing smash mouth football.
Wisky's hire was a solid, stabilizing hire. They couldnt afford to have another coach leave so quickly after getting hired. This is Chryst's destination job. Alvarez wanted him after Bert left, but Chryst wouldnt leave Pitt after just one year (a.k.a Graham). Not sure what to make of Nebraska's hire. Seems like they just wanted a coach who was 180 degrees different than Bo. Dont think they win anymore games, but the embarassing headlines will disapear.
Chryst was the safe hire. Alvarez wanted him after Bert left, but Chryst had just gotten to Pitt a year earlier. Chryst back to Wisconsin was practically inevitable. He knows Alvarez and knows what kind of AD he is. This is a stability move for Wisky. They couldnt afford to hire another coach and have them leave almost immediately for another job. Chryst will be at Wisky for the long haul.
scUM. Hands down. During football, all they kept saying was "Thank God basketball season is right around the corner".
Just can't get into basketball while football is still going on. Actually, even though I will watch a few games, I cant get into regular season college basketball. A team could go winless, but win their conference tournament and their in the dance. I love march madness though.
Yes. They are the best announcing team on television. Not over the top, but an excellent team.
Damn,I thought Gerry Kill or Kirk Ferentz were slam dunks for this award too.
Not going to buy COA anymore. Tired of getting my ass handed to me by sixth graders. Glad that monkey is off my back.
Texas and OU would never have played Baylor's non-conference schedule.
They dont have to dominate, just not get run off the field by the bama offense. if yelden starts ripping 30+yard runs and cooper goes off, then i dont think this a silver bullet defense.
I think it will ultimately be Schiano. Scum will explode.
thanks. good catch.
completely disagree with you that an 8 team playoff would ruin the idea of playing strong non-conference games. if anything, it would make it more likely that schools would schedule a solid non-conference schedule. what would they have to lose? they could still make the playoffs with a conference title even if they went 0-4 in non-conference. also, it would have a significant impact on recruiting. if you were a top recruit are you going to a school that has a typical non-con schedule of Kansas, Bowling Green, Cinnicinati, etc. or would you rather go to a school where you can play in spotlight games against Oregon, Oklahoma, Florida, etc. ? the program gets more exposure and hype scheduling a murderer's row of opponents. besides, the conference and the university would have no issues sellilng out those types of games and think about how much the conference could get for the next tv contract. hell, if purdue scheduled a tough out of conference schedule they may get some better recruits. as far as conference champs getting in, i am all for that. do you honestly think FSU is one of the top 4 teams in the country or are they in because they are the defending national champs, acc champs, and undefeated? take it out of the hands of the committee. let them settle it on the field. if you cant win your conference, you have no argument.
Great performance for Fickell/Ash and the defense. However, I am not ready to say the Silver Bullets are back just yet. Lets see how they do against Bama. If they can do well there, then I will be all in.
