Does OSU have the longest home winning streak in the nation now? We have to be getting close.
I'm not going to get anything done at work today.
Is it too late to add Temple to the B1G????
Again, spot on, bro. I'm with you. Loud and clear.
You know. You are so right. I am so sorry, my man.
It would be nice if the VaTech game ended like the PSU game last year.
Well, there were rumors that there would be significant changes to the current uniforms- making them look more like the pro combat uniforms we have worn a few times recently.
Navy is wearing white unis though...
Curious- does anyone know if there is any evidence to support the notion that the cut blocking tactics cause more injuries? I realize that football is not the fasting moving sport when it comes to ensuring player safety but they are trying. And I would think that if the evidence was there, there would be at least discussions about eliminating the cut block from the game.
What a cruel joke.. "Hey guys. I'm having a fall wedding. Don't worry though. It's on a Sunday before the NFL starts!! Oh, but the rehearsal dinner is on Saturday during the OSU game."
Michigan doesn't deserve to be ranked high because they lose 6 games a year. Alabama not only recruits well, they win 10+ games a year. Until they start doing otherwise, they deserve a high pre-season rank.
Ok, they've benefited more than anyone. Which program has been better than Bama since Saban has been their coach?
I'm not confusing anything. I am simply stating that since Saban has been at Bama, the Crimson Tide has been the best program. Yes, they have lost games. Yes, they went to a National Championship without winning their conference. Yes, Saban may get outcoached from time to time. But no program- LSU, Auburn, Florida, Oklahoma, Oregon, MSU, OSU, etc., etc.- has been as good as Bama. That makes Alabama the cream of the crop. That was the only argument I was trying to make.
Dang, those are sweet. I'm assuming we will be wearing our home scarlets?
The correct answer is there has been no program as good as Alabama since Saban has been there. They have 2 more national championships than any other program and they have not had the down years that FSU, Auburn, LSU and OSU have had in that time span. To argue otherwise does not make sense.
Which program has had better teams than Alabama since Saban has been there?
why won't they schedule a home and home with a team worth playing?
This pisses me off, as well. And, it is true that you hear about OSU having a weak schedule but never hear anything about Bama having a weak schedule despite OSU ranking ahead of them in terms of SOS. But the perception is that playing in the SEC is much harder than playing in the B1G and until the B1G consistently beats the SEC, Big 12, Pac 12, etc. in bowl and non-con games, the top tier SEC schools are going to get the benefit of the doubt. Had the B1G won 7 straight national championships, the roles would be reversed.
You can't possibly think that Alabama hasn't been the cream of the crop of college football since Saban has been there. Trust me, I hate them too, but they aren't undeserving of a number 2 ranking. Now, I do think that people are underestimating the loss of McCarron and the fact that they have to play Coker, but they have earned the benefit of the doubt.
Come on... There is a huuuuge difference between saying that historical records should play a role in your current ranking and saying that having the number 1 recruiting class for 5 straight years and winning 3 of the past 5 national championships should factor into your current ranking.
so I think the op is stating there really isn't much of a difference between the two programs particularly preseason.
If that was the point, I missed it. I didn't see anything about OSU.
how are they ranked at #2? Is it because of the recruiting classes they have every year?
Have you not been paying attention to college football for the past 7 years? They not only recruit better than any team in the nation but 97% of the time they are better than any team in the nation. Until they prove otherwise, they deserve to be in the top 3 or at the very least top 5 every year.
It is ridiculous that beating your wife only warrants a 2 game suspension. It is also ridiculous that you get suspended twice in college for smoking, twice in the NFL for smoking, AND, while awaiting your fate for your second failed drug test, get busted for DUI.
I can't wait for that show to be off the air.
3-21 career B1G record... Something tells me that he is not a good source of information on "moving the ball."
You're missing the sarcasm. It was pretty apparent in his initial post.
