Where was Pat Forde on this!!!
Isn't he a little old to be taking middle school curriculum? I guess it explains his college football allegiances...
What does it say? UH on top. What's on the bottom? TH for Tom Herman?
A piece of me says Urbz will get it straightened out with an offseason with the staff. He always seems to get it right over time.
Yup, the dude punk'd his own program and university to give his guy an audition.
If this happened at Ohio State, I would not be very happy with him.
I think it depends on the program, the geographic region, and the recruiting area. At Minnesota, in an outside stadium in the (genuine) cold weather, you need to be able to play defense and run the ball.
All these high flying offenses are slinging the football. That doesn't work so well when it gets to be about October in Minnesota.
OHIO STATE'S EZEKIEL ELLIOTT NEEDS YOUR HELP TO FIND HIS DOG, CHASE
Disregard... I see where you are coming from.
Purdue has always stunk. A few years of the Joe Tiller era was a high water mark for them.
The issue is Penn State, Michigan, and Nebraska stinking. If they become the elite programs their historic win totals suggest they should be, then we will be more than happy to play a cupcake like Purdue in the conference schedule.
Sparty and Wisconsin need to be respectable and hold their own. Sparty is doing more than it's part currently.
If all those things are happening then Purdue can be a laughing stuck and it just doesn't matter to us or to our conference.
"We will win the game today, or know the reason why"
It's been in our heritage a long time as Ohio State Fans to "know the reason why". Nothing wrong with chatter from a fan base that cares.
That contest is going to be so, so dang B1G.
Hit the nail on the head there. Mediocrity at its finest.
Delany is setting up the contract negotiations like a professional in his prime. Look out.
Burrow? Burrell? Bye? Buy?
I am a little younger than you and i have similar memories. Sat there in 2001 and then went to the other student sections after that year. But Hey - Freshman Orientation - amirite?
i didn't nptice. it's called selectively speedreading.
Pretty Ridic. We need to enjoy this ride!
Great to know. I won't bring that up when I am there in a couple of weeks. lol.
Oh man... Iowa is not going to like this. I thought the butter cow was theirs and theirs alone.
Awful. Thought it was another rendition of Louisville. Adidas doesn't get that traditions are a big part of college football. Nebraska is a traditional program. This one falls on AD. He needed to pull the plug on this #FAIL before it got out of the design stage.
From a business standpoint, Adidas is saving a lot of designer time by giving all their college programs the same crap design, customized (loosely) with team colors.
I didn't know it was possible, but he just went up a notch in my book. haha. Car Dale Jones people.
A single loss to a bad Michigan team would be tough but tolerated.
Multiple losses to multiple bad Michigan teams will draw criticism. Unless it is offset by years of winning against Michigan and with National Championships.
Multiple Losses to an Elite Michigan Team (oxymoron cited) offset against Multiple Wins against an Elite Michigan Team would be acceptable as long as we also continued to have good showings (always competitive, with some wins) in elite bowl games, would be tolerated and I think accepted as being successful in a competitive environment.
I haven't kept up with this, but I thought they used to get a lot more money than this.
CBA must have reigned in the big money to rookie contracts.
Hope he truly cashes out in his second contract.
Read that linked article. This is the first I've heard they flew Herman in and got intel on our gameplan that beat them.
The sharing that happens in the football coaching profession is unbelievable to me. I know Urban has visited other programs a decent amount. I know it's a fraternity. But man.... would I like to have kept that game plan under wraps.
I also know it's a lot about culture and motivation and Urban is special in that regard. Still.....
This is pretty great:
I wanted to make an offhanded and sarcastic joke about Urbz pulling strings here, but I have too much respect for what this kid must be going through. Keep your head up kid. Work hard and good things will happen.
