I live in MI and regularly go to Ann Arbor for work. Nothing makes me happier than beating the hell out of THAT TEAM.

I love Ohio State as much as anyone frequenting this site, but I'm disappointed at our collective (short) memory. Player suspensions not withstanding, the Tat Five scandal was only a large scandal because Coach Tressell knew about the infractions and still allowed the players to play. Had he reported them, the players would have served a small suspension and continued their career.

Here's to hoping we find out Jimbo has known about shit all along and still played Jameis. In that instance, look for some vacated wins and exclusion fromte playoff.

Baylor and WVU are putting on a fun game. Officials are doing their best to slow it down (flags everywhere).

Comment 14 Oct 2014

Kentucky just got the internet last year, they're still in 1994 trolling mode. I wouldn't be surprised if Waycracken starts posting about how much better Kentuckians are at hunting meat playing Oregon Trail.

Comment 09 Oct 2014

I'm with you here, I too am concerned about playing a defense better equipped to handle a good offense. Take away the pass pro up front, or the recent improved rushing game, or the ability of our receivers to get open fast, any of these can cause a chain reaction and stall our offense. I wouldn't say any of the past three defense's we've played have had much ability to do any of that. I just don't want a repeat of last season, where we get all amped playing shitty teams, then go 0-2 against the two best teams we played all year.

Coach, obviously the game has changed a great deal in the last 20+ years. What change(s) do you like, and conversely, what about modern college football do you dislike?

Comment 04 Oct 2014

+1 Sir... Well executed.

Perhaps Brady will become the next great Dominoes franchise owner in honor of his boss's former employer.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

He's done, at this point even wins over MSU and us probably wouldn't save him. I see a "defensive line coach " title in his future. 

Comment 04 Oct 2014

I hope we bring the pain in 2 weeks, knock them back down a peg or three.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

Notre Dame, Utah, Minnesota, Rutgers.

Wow that looks bad...

Comment 04 Oct 2014

That might as well be the chopping block for Brady as head coach...
 

Comment 04 Oct 2014

They were calling for low 40's, gusty wind, and rain all night. Might have kept some of the less die-hard fans away tonight. It was a fairly hot ticket though..

Comment 03 Oct 2014

With the alumni base we have in the area, the only choice Maryland had was to have a "red out". Any other color and all the OSU fans would have ruined their photo.

Comment 01 Oct 2014

Remy, I really hope you apply to the next writing position that opens up on 11W, I feel like you would make some seriously good contributions to the site (over and above what you currently provide). It's refreshing and gratifying to read a well thought-out, well-written forum post that is not a "Fire Fickell", "JT vs BM", or "Pass Defense" post. 

Comment 01 Oct 2014

I can't add any insight, but count me in the group who wants to know more. I thought the same thing regarding the red zone, throw a TE, Mike Thomas, and Jeff Greene in... That's a whole lot of range and height for JT to hit. 

Comment 30 Sep 2014

Oh we missed a prime opportunity here. If we could somehow organize a large turn out, how funny would it be to have a huge group of OSU fans host the "Give Brady a Chance" rally. Host it in Ann Arbor and make sure the Detroit News stations are there to film.

What a punch in the gut that would be.

Comment 29 Sep 2014

One week from today, 10/6.

After this week, the team will be in mental shambles and will lose to Rutgers. Let the fan outrage build all day Sunday, by Monday Brandon will be forced to fire Hoke in an attempt to save himself. They'll promote Nussmeier or Mattison to interim HC for the duration of the season. The Regents will fire Brandon at the end of the season, then UM will open up the checkbook to try and lure Jim Harbaugh back to the college ranks.
 

Comment 29 Sep 2014

We'll be ok in the secondary, we won't see another QB as good as Kiel is the rest of the season. Tubberville wasn't lying about how good his receivers are either, they were flat out beating our DB's. I'll gladly take a long bomb here and there if it means we're not giving up 12 yard screen's and slants all game long like last year.

I may catch some flak for this, but at this point I still don't know how good are offense really is. We did OK at Navy, horrible against VT, then beat up on two of the worst FBS defense's in the country in Kent State and Cincy. I don't want the "OSU is only good because they play crap teams" mantra to continue for another year, but playing in the B1G, its difficult to argue otherwise (MSU excluded).

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Much like TTUN, Iowa's fans are have been calling for Ferentz's head all year. The question becomes, also like TTUN, who do you replace him with? I think some fans view coaches more as chess pieces and less like the humans they are. Simply paying "top 20" pay doesn't guarantee you get a great coach, just ask any TTUN fan. I think the majority of coaches move to programs and cities where they feel they can either advance their career, live a higher quality of life, or restore some personal connection they have with that program. Simply opening up a checkbook that 20 other schools can match doesn't really guarantee you anything.

My wife works for a non-profit in the Ann Arbor area, and as recently as last week was at a fundraiser the Carr family attended. They are an extremely generous family, donating both time and money to numerous causes. As was mentioned on sports radio this afternoon, they are also very involved with C.S. Mott Children's Hospital at UofM, the very place young Chad is now being treated at.

Thoughts and Prayers to Chad and the whole Carr family, no one and no family deserves to be put in this situation.

I hope you're right, but I don't share your optimism that the SEC will ever be put in anything but a bright, shiny light. With ESPN owning the SEC Network, ESPN has a vested interest in keeping the SEC on top of all the other conferences. It will take years of sustained success against the SEC by the other conferences before any public opinion begins to shift. In the mean time, ESPN will keep pounding the "SEC Dominance" story down our throats.
