I heard the real reason Neal was upset with Michigan was because Mr. Michigan Man himself, Tom Brady, was the mastermind behind Deflategate. Kid just didn't want to be associated with people like that.

Do you excitement masters spend Sundays watching the Browns and the Bengals?

Is that any worse than watching Michigan on Saturdays?

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Well, it seems as though FSU is our biggest competitor for Bosa and they just got Josh Sweat...

I wonder if it has to do with a first time coach being in charge of the offense. You don't see that very often, if at all, at elite programs. 

Comment 17 Jan 2015

No. And to be honest, I wouldn't bet on them going next year, either. You have to imagine Russell leaves, which leaves you with Kam, Loving, Bates-Diop, And Tate as the only guys with significant experience (plus the VaTech transfer). I don't really see any of the freshman making a huge difference next year- certainly not on the level that Russell has had this year. Maybe if Russell returns but I'm not counting on it. Hopefully I'm wrong.

True but I don't think the point of the post was that they would drop because they lose Mariota.

Comment 17 Jan 2015

Eh, I don't know about that. They deserve love. They won arguably the toughest conference given the PAC's bowl success and they smoked Florida State and Michigan State.

Comment 17 Jan 2015

They troll Ohio State because we have millions and millions of fans who will get all riled up and read their articles.

If you can't see that 161-2 is unsportsmanlike, do you really understand the concept of sportsmanship?

Yes, if I were the winning coach, I would tell my team to pass it around the perimeter until the shot clock went off after the first quarter and I was up 50-0 (even if you allow your team to shoot, you tell them to shoot with under 5 seconds left on the shot clock, no threes and outside of the paint. By doing this, you limit yourself to roughly 30 possessions the rest of the game, let's say you make half and you only score 30 more points the rest of the game. Not 110). 

Working on different plays and trying new things against a team this severely outmatched does not help your team whatsoever. I know, I am a coach.

This type of discrepancy in talent level rarely occurs at the college level. However, if it did occur, I would like to think that the winning coach would have implemented some of the same strategy I listed above. 

It's more about teaching the winning team to do the right thing than it is about making sure the losing team's feelings aren't hurt.

You must not have ever coached before. Either that or you have been fortunate enough to only have coached kids who excel at sports. These are high schoolers we are talking about. I have coached teams that have lost by 50 and it would not have mattered if I was coaching or Phil Jackson was coaching- the result would have been the same. I wasn't there and I have no idea what the opposing coach's intentions were but he did not do everything that he could have done to keep this from getting out of hand and there is no arguing that. The real question is why this game even got scheduled as the losing team had just lost a game by 90 and the winning team had just won a game by 90. What did they expect to happen?

Relax, man. 161-2 is excessive no matter how you look at it. These are kids we are talking about. No one deserves to be humiliated like that. And this isn't one of those "everyone gets a trophy" stories or some BS about Ohio State "running up the score" against Oregon. I have coached in games like this- both on the winning side and the losing side. There should have been a running clock after the first quarter, the winning team should have packed into a 2-3 soft zone after going up by 50 in the first quarter and should have passed the ball around until the shot clock went out. They should have tried to end the game as soon as possible. Being humiliated 161-2 does not make these girls want to work harder.
