This was my thought too.
My dream playoff scenario is #1 OSU vs. #4 USC. IIRC, the Buckeyes haven't defeated the Trojans since the early 70s. Time for that to change...
Lots of upsets in this bracket: 8, 2, 6, 5.
I'll go with 1, 7, 3, 4.
Fielding Yost, on the other hand, is the cardboard box of tradition that bears the weight of all that Michigan arrogance that defines the program we all hate so much,
1, 2, 3, 4. (No upsets here.)
Great post, SonOf47! Enjoyed the perspective.
Great article! (FWIW, I also predicted a 9-3 season.)
I expected this picture to be posted by Abe Froman.
The kid sounds great, but what wowed me was THE VAN! That is a sweetass ride, my friends!
when the Browns' season ends with Heyward sacking whatever sorry sack of sixth-string shit is playing QB Week 17 vs. the Steelers.
LOL. It's funny because it's true...
I had these! I think it was 2nd grade...
I totally agree that VT made low percentage play after low percentage play in last year's game. It was the equivalent of going to the casino and hitting eight points in a row at the craps table. They basically got lucky.
My prediction is Bucks by 10. <channels Lee Corso> "...closer than the experts think..."
Here's my solution to QBgeddon:
Cardale plays when we are in the opponent's territory. (This gets us maximum mileage out of his cannon arm.)
JT plays when we're in our own territory and the field is shrinking. (This gets us maximum mileage out of his accuracy.)
XBrax plays on goalline plays or when we are backed up against our own goalline. (This gets us maximum mileage out of his shiftiness.)
I know the old saying that if you can't pick one quarterback, then you don't have one. But after last season, we all know that's BS.
Ah, man! My dad and I are going to the Rutgers game.
Guess we'll just have to take one for the team and let the Brits have a turn enjoying our favorite All Brass and Drums Band...
I was surprised to learn that the Silver Fox is only 2 years older than Hairball...
(BTW, my current t-shirt is woefully deficient in Screaming Kerry Coombses.)
Gotta love Patient 0's scarlet and gray blazer!
Hey DJ, did you mean you are "done" with the Lakers if they don't draft Patient 0? Because you wrote "down"...
Click the embedded link in the article that says "the Buckeyes were the danger."
Part of me is secretly glad each year when the Buckeye basketball team gets knocked out of March Madness because it means I don't have to pretend to care about the sport of basketball any longer. (Unfortunately the whole "Cleveland is desperate for a championship" narrative has me sucked in again right now.)
There I said it. Glad I got that off my chest...
It cracks me up to think of some poor UM graphics guy trying to conjure sticks to throw at the Batmobile as it rolls down the street with thrusters blasting.
