I'm going to throw out a bold prediction on this upcoming season related to the top 5/conference champs. 

I think OSU and TCU are the most likely 2 for the CFP. After that, it's a toss up between a group of Clemson/USCal/SEC champ/Oregon/MSU. 

The thing I'm even surprised about saying and predicting is that for some reason I think Arkansas wins the sec west and SEC. I don't know why, just do. 

My 4 teams would be OSU v Arkansas and TCU v Clemson.

Shouldn't be too hard. Just a stroll down to Urban's office and a view of the Sugar Bowl Trophy---" what we have here is what we won by beating the SEC champion. But by all means, go join the 'best conference' if you're so inclined. That other thing? Oh that's a national championship trophy." 

Comment 21 Jul 2015

All last year as the magical run rolled on, what would have happened had OSU still managed to beat VT. Would they have placed so much emphasis on the bear front and being able to beat it again? Would the stretch run have played out the same if they hadn't? 

It worked out perfectly, but to me, VT was a blessing last year. Now it's getting close to time to avenge it anyway.

This goes to the point that Barton made. Satan's teams are built big in the front seven and fast on the back end to stop the run game and defend the passing attack. 

Meyer's teams have an essence of big to them but he would have rather have a slightly undersized guy who's athletic as hell and fast instead, ie Micheal Bennett. 

That's the way the game is going now and Saban hasn't yet adjusted. He either will adjust or be left to wonder why he keeps coming up short in big games (it's not draft grades or playing not to get hurt)

Anybody who has an objective view of Ohio State at all, diehard fan or not, should be able to say Jalin Marshall scared them multiple times on returns. He was sketchy in the return game at times, no doubt. I don't know why you have been hit with DV, as I saw that as a fact based on last year. 

Comment 10 Jul 2015

Braxton was, and may still be, the face of Ohio State football. No one could have envisioned then what transpired and one PsU play different and we're not even talking about this. I doubt very many remember that quote or care about it now. 

I I understand your point but he was backing his senior captain who just went down with a senior ending injury. Nothing wrong with that. 

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Their defensive line and linebackers, for the most part, were really big and slow. That's their problem. Against most teams, it doesn't matter, but a team that can come close to matching them physically and has a ton more speed on the edge, they lose. 

Thats what happened. If anything, it starts with recruiting quicker Lb and DE, much like how Urbans teams are built--strong, athletic, quick D linemen instead of just massive 320 lb hogs.

TBH, I initially thought the same thing, but then remembered Zeke comes from a pretty solid family and didn't think it was too far fetched to see him driving that kind of car because of it.

Comment 29 Jun 2015

As much as I hate saying it, by season's end, Arkansas might have been one of the best teams in the conference. They may give a run at the top this year with 15 returning starters according to Phil Steele. 

Of course, I don't know where each game is, home or away, but they might be my "surprise" pick to steal the division right now. 

Comment 29 Jun 2015

I would venture to guess there are a fair amount of pro kickers who could do this under the right circumstances and conditions, just don't have the motivation or care to do so. Again, it's impressive to be able to do this, but not much in the way of practicality. 

Comment 29 Jun 2015

Definitely impressive regardless of situation. 

But, still much different than live game action. 

Comment 26 Jun 2015

Circumstances like mentioned above is just another reason why I love this site and the writers on it. Birm's rule of usually not communicating with recruits until finishing their freshman year is a way of hopefully slowing down the ridiculous pace that recruiting has gotten too. 

Edit: Not to say 1 person following this would change things but maybe others would follow suit. A tall order though in today's "get news when and where you can" world. 

Comment 23 Jun 2015

You said it all when you said "it's a marathon not a sprint." I don't watch a lot of NBA basketball until it matters. 

And your "Curry took over the 4th quarter" is accurate but ONLY because his teammates got him there to begin with. Lebron had to everything and DID do everything he could to win that series. 

Curry, and the rest of the Warriors can play high intensity energy all the time because they're so deep and only play 30-35 mins per each. For Cle, Lebron has to play 40+ usually and obviously the finals 45+ for them to have a chance. He couldn't have done that all year.

I did more than 1 research paper on marijuana or marijuana/alcohol. There is no evidence I read about that it's a gateway drug. Also, as others mentioned, the effect of alcohol on the body is worse, killing brain cells which can't be regrown. Marijuana has no similar effect as dangerous as that.

I have to agree here. Live close to Lima and our area was absolutely pounded with rain (over 10 inches in a week) last week and I helped repair and replace a pump last week. There was a ton of stuff ruined in that basement too, including a dryer and some other electrical items. 

Love Meyer and Ohio State forever, but we're not for him being famous and the greatest college football coach there is, wouldn't have heard about this, quite like the people near me who had the same situations.

The big-pawed puppy the Hokies felled last September will be the junkyard dog this time around. 

And that dog is about to get loose and show up on the Hokies home turf out for blood.
