I almost think that starting out the season this way could give the top teams an advantage from year to year. If you win the game and the team again is good that year, it's a huge benefit. Obviously losing isn't beneficial but if it's so early and to a really good team, it wouldn't hurt as much. 

Definitely an interesting debate either way.

But it is less annoying when its a buckeye doing it.

Not exactly "most of his career" as Plax only played 4 or 5 years for Pitt. Yes, Ward moved around but he also played outside a fair bit later in his career. Being able to do both is invaluable.

Indian Lake State Park. Only about half hour southeast of Lima. Has good sized Indian lake and fairly close channels to do your fishing and canoeing. Also has some trails off the state park that can be used for bike riding or hiking. Fairly flat around that part but fishing and canoeing are definitely easy access from the state park itself. Have electricity or non electric sites.

Okay but that's a completely different discussion. I'm not disagreeing Okafor is the best player in this draft, but most teams draft based on need. Mentioning a possible trade changes the thinking of the situation entirely IMO. 

I'm not saying you're wrong at all, just that your initial comment doesn't factor in a trade possibility.

One Hines Ward would beg to differ. Very similar measurables and speed. No problem being a #1 on the outside in the league. 

Comment 04 May 2015

But it's crazy how losing to VT and the weaknesses being exposed so bad eventually led to this team's triumph. Without that game happening, nothing would have changed and another team capable of doing it (like MSU or Bama) would have came at a very inopportune time.

I personally like the fact that Dantonio is able to get high quality players and develop them into stars. Better MSU than scum and it still gives us a high quality to beat each year helping the case as the CFP evaluates SOS every year. 

The argument "the big ten needs Michigan to be good" is false and I hope they never win again.

Wow. What a legit question. Obviously the normal rotation may take place but perry and  Lee are both ranging linebackers and McMillan being the qb of the defense. Sure doesn't seem that LB will have much trouble this year. 

Comment 21 Apr 2015

For the sake of your argument, I generally agree with this statement. However, based on previous years, Bama has gotten top talent to sign and stick to their commitments very early. Bama being this far down the list at any point is somewhat surprising.

And it feeds into the Cooper comments, which I find funny. :)

Comment 20 Apr 2015

Man, the excuses some people come up with. I'm sure Nick Saban (regardless of what you think of him) let them take it easy in practice, right? That's such BS. He seems really similar to Meyer in his intensity about how to practice and prepare. I dont think for a second that statement is true. Just an excuse for why they got beat.

They led 21-6 for crying out loud. Accept you got beat and move on, damn.

Looking at the stats and eras of the time, I would say that Moore and Kelly are slightly more impressive for the interceptions total, accounting for fewer games as well. The total tackles also only get beat by Doss/Nickey and probably Moore/Kelly.

As far as both categories combined, Moore and Kelly are the only tandem that really is equal or better it seems. And there have been some solid tandems of those in the list. Impressive guys we've got lining up right now.
