I TOLD YALL we could've beat Bama had we met them in the NCG. Sigh.

Overrated as hell. Only played 3 good teams, lost to two, barely escaped the third. 

 

Comment 14 Dec 2013

They've had fierce competition in the last couple years as the program declined and kids decided they'd rather score tons of points for cool-sunglasses-visor-wearing-Bro Sumlim and Johnny Footbawl rather than suffer through embarrassing losses with Grampa Mack and a disgruntled fanbase.

THE DREAM IS STILL ALIVE PEOPLE. 

 

Saban has no buy-out clause in his Bama contract. Meaning he could leave at anytime, since we have this thing in Murrica called the 13th Amendment that prevents forced labor. Aka if your contract has no buyout (or restrictive covenant, but that's not relevant here) you can leave at anytime and all they can do is ... stop paying you. I so desperately want to knock Bama fans off their high horse. Their rage-filled tears would taste very, very sweet.

 

SABAN TO TEXAS 2014 MAKE IT HAPPEN

Auburn's D looked sooooo suspect. I'm almost Giddy at what FSU's Minor League NFL offense will do to it. 

AT LEAST WE'LL GET TO SEE THE SEC STREAK END THIS YEAR. ugh.

Comment 08 Dec 2013

Everyone's riding Meyer for "predictable" playcalling but you have to look at the circumstances. Brax finished 8/21. He had number of throws to his receivers when they had single man coverage down the field. Either due to drops or deep balls fluttered just out of reach, we weren't able to convert those opportunities. And when push came to shove Urban decided to try to win the game on the ground. Which is just hard to do when you can't punish MSU for stacking the box like they did. Brax isn't an NFL QB yet (and honestly, will never be). Sparty wanted Brax to beat them with his arm and he couldn't. I don't see how this is the fault of UM's playcalling. 

And despite ALL OF THIS, our offense still averaged 6.8 yds a carry against the undisputed best Defense in the country. Scoring 24 pts on Sparty is about as good as you can hope for. You just can't let a Bollman-coached offense roll up 400 yds on you. 

I'm not even mad. I love Brax but he was a Tress recruit. Urban's spread qbs usually are some sort of huge monstrous Tebow/Cam Newton types who are less fragile and have cannon arms for the deep ball (ahem, Cardale). The offense will actually get better once he has his own recruits in place. And here's to hoping Fick is eased out next year and when we finally make it to the big stage again we won't be a one dimensional team.

It's just a relief not having to have nightmares about what Rapist Winston will do to Fick's D now. And we get to hopefully see the prideful SEC Elitists at Auburn get blown to smithereens by a truly dominant Seminole team. Maybe OSU even beats a deflated Bama in the Sugar as well (anyone remember Utah in 09?) 

 

POSITIVES. *sigh*.

URBAN MEYER HIMSELF worked for ESPN for a year. 

 

I understand sometimes ESPN can feel biased towards OSU/the B1G. But ESPN isn't some MONOLITH with the SOLE goal of destroying buckeye nation. It's a huge corporation, like any other. OUR HEAD COACH/SAVIOR/CURRENT EMPEROR himself was a talking head for them. If Urban's okay with them I can't see ESPN as the Anti-OSU Death Star.

Comment 25 Nov 2013

He'd never leave a school that's the only big D1 program in a state swimming in NFL talent (per capita, Louisiana is like one of the most talent rich sports states) for one with declining demographics, cold weather (harder to recruit 18yo kids), and a program that's basically turning into Notre Dame 2.0 in front of our very eyes (aka, You Were Relevant Once). 

Not to mention in LA he gets a 100% free pass for all his wacky Les antics and pressers and all that jazz. Because down there (speaking as a native Louisianan but OSU alumni), we're a lot more chill about that sort of stuff. The whole "he must be a MICHIGAN MANNN HURR DURR" element of the UM fanbase that ran out West Virginny country boy Rich Rod won't be able to stand the easygoing demeanor of a Les. They'll eat him alive at the first sign of trouble, and he knows it. 

Like ND, the biggest obstacle to UM becoming not crappy anymore is overcoming their own program's super-inflated, totally unearned sense of self-worth. 

Comment 25 Nov 2013

Urban has never lost The Game? He's never lost ANY GAME here. 

 

THINK ABOUT THAT. He's on a historic run, not just for Ohio state, but in the history of this sport.

Why? Because this happened: http://espn.go.com/ncf/boxscore?gameId=270080194 

 

Sorry, I still have PTSD over it too. But you guys wanna know why? THIS is the root cause. No use shying away from that fact. We were embarrassed so badly that night our national reputation has never recovered.

Comment 24 Nov 2013

Or ... maybe the UM fanbase/donors/alumni/Michigan-man culture/unrealistic expectations were so unhealthy and stifling that together they managed to wipe out the talent of a decent coach, who has had success everywhere ELSE he's been? It's not you, it's me, etc? Lol.

 

 

Comment 24 Nov 2013

I totally enjoyed watching them get exposed for the gimmicky system offense team that they are today, and against Stanford.

But I'm afraid I have to disagree with your Colorado analogy. Oregon might not have tradition, but this isn't the beginning of the end for them. They have Phil Knight and Nike's billions. They can replace the no-name HC with a more expensive one. They will stay chic because Nike will want them to stay chic, and Nike runs college sports to a large extent. Colorado had none of these advantages in the 90s. I don't think Oregon will ever win it all, but saying they're gonna start having 8-4 seasons is premature when they have the deepest pockets in the nation backing them up financially. 

Comment 23 Nov 2013

WAR EAGLE. 

 

I'm gonna be randomly posting/yelling that all week. I have no idea what it means even. (an eagle is in the military? going to war over an eagle? who knows.) But hell FSU isn't going to lose, short of Winston being arrested. So Auburn is OUR ONLY HOPE NOW. DON'T LET US DOWN MALZAHNNN

Comment 23 Nov 2013

Honestly, I'm like 10x more nervous about the Iron Bowl and rooting for Bama to lose. 

 

It's nice to wax poetic about rivalries and throwing records out the window and stuff ... but the teams have to be at least ROUGHLY on the same level for that to be true. We've won 23 straight games. They ... mustered 158 yards today. Total. For the whole game. Both rushing and passing. 

 

So, yeah. 

Comment 22 Nov 2013

In the 6 years since: Urban has won another ring, and is about to wrap up 2 more undefeated seasons. Tressel beat Oregon and Arkansas in BCS games. I say Urban still comes out ahead. 

Comment 22 Nov 2013

Honestly, though, what ARE their options? Hoke is obviously a fraud (AS I'VE BEEN SAYING HERE SINCE LAST SUMMER), but who replaces him? We forget that Michig@n has been "down" nationally for quite some time now. They don't have the clout to attract an Urban meyer or saban or Gruden anymore. 

 

As for 'michigan men', Harbaugh isn't leaving the NFL seeing as he was one win away from a Super bowl. Les Miles didn't leave LSU last time and Michigan has only become a worse job since then, so no reason he'd leave. Who else is left? Tressel might actually be one of their better options. 

Comment 20 Nov 2013

Kudos to you, Ramzy, for straight up sayin what all of us know but don't like to bring up: that all of this, the heart of it, all goes back to that night in Glendale in 2007. Nothing's ever been the same since. 

 

You guys may hate it but that will always be the enduring legacy of the second half of Tressel's tenure; 41-14 and it's lingering effects, even today. We jus have to live with it and hope the man who inflicted it can also be the one to redeem us. 

 

Comment 17 Nov 2013

EH.... IDK. It would depend on the quality of their win against Bama. If Auburn squeaks by in the Iron bowl on some improbably lucky play (as is their M.O., apparently) and then goes on to under whelm in the SEC CG and lose to say S.Car., then we have nothing to worry about. 

If Auburn shocks the world and buries Saban like 50-17 or something, well then yeah. They'd probably jump us LOL. But I think the odds of that are low. I wouldn't even know if I'd pick Auburn to win the SEC CG should they make it. 

Comment 11 Nov 2013

Their defense actually looked functional for large stretches of time vs LSU. So yes, that kind of matters? 

Comment 11 Nov 2013

I'm not even exaggerating about VTech being a shitty OOC win. VTech lost to D U K E this year. DUKE. 

LSU isn't where they were a few years ago but they're not a bad team either. But they're arguably the only half-decent team Bama has a "good win" against. I'm sorry, I just can't call escaping in a shootout with Manziel where Manziel put up like 500 yards and 5 tds on you a "good win".
