agree with you about the lack of pass rush. saw bosa in the backfield quite a bit when he was in however. we will need for the d line to get pressure on mayfield in week 3. houston showed us how to beat them and they did it with a stout pass rush. ou will run the ball alot more now, so even though we need to get a pass rush, we also have to have those run stoppers as well. going to be interesting to see who steps their game up and fills the void left by sprinkle.
Auburn?? That's a bold move cotton. Have you seen their schedule? The will be lucky to go 1-3 in their first 4 games. Malzahn will be lucky to have a job at the end of the year. They are a dumpster fire.
Everyone would like to have a deep threat, but unless our pass protection improves from last year, it will be a tall order.
no worries. "dimebag josh" will come up hot again (probably before his 4 game suspension is even done) and pryor will get some touches.
CAVs have a good shot if they only remember that 3>2. Force Curry and Thompson to drive the lane. If they get a layup, so be it. Take your shots and hammer them when they drive. Adams from OKC kept trying to play Curry and Thompson like they were going to drive to the basket and they just shot 3s over him all game long. play right up on them and make them drive. also, never leave them to help out. give up the 2 if necessary. make the other players beat you.
"sons" always gets an upvote
damn, i miss that show......
(bows head) Dear 6 pound 7 ounce baby Jesus, please let Clemson destroy Alabama next Monday. Amen.
Probably comes down to the potential early playing time. With scum being the dumpster fire as it is, elite recruits probably figure they can come in and start right away. If they choose tOSU, odds are they will redshirt their first year because of the depth of talent Urban has stockpiled. Also, all of these elite recruits more than likely are being told that they are the missing piece to a championship team and since they have been dominant on the field so far, they believe it without hesitation.
Was never really impressed with him, but he needed to go just to get away from Franklin and that dumpster fire at PSU. Dont know how long Franklin will have a job unless he dramatically turns things around.
i woludnt expand to 8 teams but i would expand to 6. all conference champs get in along with a wild card or the group of 5 champ as long as they were ranked in the top 15. the commitee could seed the teams and the top 2 would get a bye the first week. winning your conference has to matter otherwise why not do away with conferences and have every team go independent? some say it would dilute the regular season (especially the non conference schedule) but i dont think so. the nonconference schedule is pretty weak for most teams as it is. we could actually do away with one of the non conference games in order to expand the playoffs. also, if winning the conference gets you in, why wouldnt teams schedule marquee matchups. it would be great for recruiting and tv ratings and get the team and the fanbase pumped up prior to conference play. dont think niu, hawaii, etc.. tells you anything about your team. playing alabama or oregon preseason would give you a much better read on your teams potential. also, disqualify any team from being eligible for the playoffs if they schedule and FCS team.
conference championships should be the most important criteria in selecting teams for the playoffs. otherwise, you are really going to go off the deep end when they select 2-3 SEC teams for the playoffs. the sec teams already get a head start on the rest of the teams due to the preseason rankings (and dont say they do not have any bearing on the selection committee because they do). if you cant win your conference thats on you. we had our chance but came up short.
get off my lawn punk
I thought the same thing KBonay, but apparently some on the site dont want to let the "dap" go so easily.................be careful.
did'nt mean to offend you and your "go to move".... probably have a twitter or vine account full of photos and videos of you dapping. stay classy...........
I was really hoping that we could have left that garbage back in 2015. Please stop.........
I think we are one of the best 4 teams in the country, but we did not take care of our business so we didnt deserve to be in the playoff. However, after watching the beginning of the Rose Bowl, we should have been the BIG representative there. That would have been a great game. Iowa is going to get housed like Northwestern did earlier today. Would like to see what we could have done against Stanford.
For everyone complaining that conference championships should not be regarded as a major selection criteria, be careful what you ask for. How would you feel about a playoff with 2-3 SEC teams?? If you cannot win your own conference, why should you get a shot at the championship? I dont care if the conference champion has 2 or 3 losses. It would be better than having a group of people deciding who "deserved" to go to the playoff. Win your conference and you have a good shot at getting in. The way it should be.
Bosa, you selfish bastard...........................
I think that Booger McFarland was the one who said that. How serious can you take a guy named Booger?
I hope Sparty wins it all. Not only would it be good for the BIG, it would be good for our division overall. Sick of hearing how dominant the SEC West is all of the time.
Rub some dirt on it and get back to work.
with that definition, you can exclude all kinds of illegal activity. either it is against the law or it is not. if people do not like the law, change it. just because you dont like the law, doesnt mean you can ignore it or violating the law doesnt come with consequences.
define relevant to football or school.,.....
I see your point, but if Urban is trying to cement a culture of leadership and doing the right thing, their have to be consequences every time a player runs afoul of the law no matter how trivial you or I think it is. Thats part of being a good leader. If he starts letting things go for one player, where does it stop?
