This kind of breaks the 4th wall for me, but I still found it funny. Hopefully this will be the last of these though. The premise is really starting to run thin. 

Comment 28 Jan 2015

Weber being at the Natty celebration rather than visit elsewhere I believed was always a sign of his true intentions. He appears to be listening to Harbaugh, but I think at the end of the day, he stays in our class. 

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Alabama was Tennessee before Tennessee was Tennessee before Saban got hired.  All tradition, no success for many years. The DeBose, Franchione, and Shula eras at Alabama were really bad, from 2000 to 2007, Alabama had twice as many .500 or worse season than 10 win seasons. Had Alabama been in the Big Ten in 2007, with a 7-6 record, Saban would beaten Tressel for CoY (and Zook). 

Despite some of our NC disappointments, Ohio State has clearly been the best program of this century.

From 1999, 

Had he [Tate] not been asked to depart the Ohio State basketball team and then chosen to transfer to join the Cincinnati Bearcats

Tate visited his girlfriend in Columbus and said he watched with no bitterness as the team [Ohio State] that dismissed him

Comment 23 Jan 2015

I'd be interested in seeing the flexibility of the admissions requirements, because on paper, OSU and Wisconsin's admission requirements are very similar for regular students. They both have median quartile ACTs of 27-31. It does appear that UWM has an average GPA of 3.8 while OSU has a 3.6 average. OSU had an acceptance rate of 55%, while Wisconsin had a 51%. 

Perhaps Ohio State is more flexible than Wisconsin, but all Academic indicators suggest OSU and Wisconsin are similar enough for me to call BS on Gary Andersen. 

Comment 21 Jan 2015

We're a run first offense. We have great QBs, that make big plays. 

Honestly, what the OP said doesn't make a lot of sense. JT/BM are fundamentally different QBs than CJ.  If JT/BM can put up big numbers in a RO scheme, whereas, Cardale can put up big numbers when we are running a more pro-style offense, that suggests that scheme has very little to do with success, rather, we have elite QBs, coached to the highest level, with no fear of the big stage. 

If you put Joe Bauserman in this offense, he wouldn't put up Heisman numbers. 

Comment 21 Jan 2015

Correct. A student manager  scapegoat claimed he on his own accord deflated a few footballs without Kiffin knowing, and in that same season he had Cody Kessler switch jerseys right before the game to be the same as the punter to run a successful fake. USC was fined for the footballs. 

Comment 20 Jan 2015

Much like there is on one qualified Harbaugh on their staff, there should only be one thread about a silly TE coach. 

Comment 17 Jan 2015

I'd assume OSU could find several able body kickers to walk-on. 

However, I think Neurnberger compares very favorable to Mike Nugent. If you will recall, Nugent's freshman season was a disaster. 7/14 with some truly ugly misses. SN's misses hurt us against VT, however he improved.  Freshman to Sophomore year seems to be a year of big jumps for kickers. and while I was concerned about Neurnberger having to make a kick against Alabama and Oregon, his performance suggests he is good and maybe will be a great kicker. After VT, his misses were 29 (blocked), 41, 46, 47, and 48. Making kicks 45+ isn't guaranteed in college for the majority of programs. 

Comment 16 Jan 2015

Being unable to play in spring ball isn't something that qualifies one for a medical redshirt. Additionally, as I understand it, JT took a regular redshirt last season, so acquiring a medical redshirt would only matter if he lost an additional season beyond 2015-2016. 

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Clearly the accomplishments of Cardale and JT overshadow Kenny G, but alot of that is not on Kenny G. Kenny G beat Purdue, and he beat Cal on the road. Had OSU won a NC last year, the accomplishments of KG would stand out more. Had OSU won, KG would be remembered as an invaluable asset that rose to occasion when called upon.  

In addition, KG ultimately didn't have the talent of JT and Cardale, which may make his accomplishments more impressive, someone who was once less trusted than Joe Bauserman leading OSU to important wins. 

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Well then TCU should have beat Baylor if they wanted in. They did not win their conference. The committee made the right call. Also, look at what happened to the "elite" games of TCU's schedule in the bowls. Minnesota lost, Oklahoma lost, Baylor lost, West Virginia lost, Kansas State lost, Ole Miss's conference got exposed. TCU is a Top 10 football team, but nothing more then that. 

Ohio State won a National Championship, and these silly "What-If" arguments are the last vestibule of anti-OSU hate. 

Comment 09 Jan 2015

The fact is that our conference has a network that challenges ESPN, so the idea that any sort of leverage can be derived seems a bit off, and honestly, the greatest crow that any Ohio State fan could have would be seeing another NC for OSU. Slights both real and perceived only matter as long as you lack other means of acquiring satisfaction. 

Comment 30 Dec 2014

I think it's an oversimplification to say it's just Craft. It's a combination of Amir Williams being a severe off the ball defensive liability and Russell being a freshman and having real struggles. Russell is a great talent, but I don't think he's ready to carry a team to victory yet. Unfortunately Thompson lacks the skill set to impose himself as a great scorer as well. 

Comment 29 Dec 2014

Good for Michigan, but money is no substitute for passion and loyalty and at the end of the day, Harbaugh had to be bought. Harbaugh had a nice season at Stanford with Luck. However, Urban Meyer has been proven a winner at the highest levels of College Football, and didn't need stupid money to become our coach. I like our guy. 

Any Michigan fan that doesn't think that Harbaugh is on the first plane to Seattle or New York once Carroll or Coughlin is gone I think are kidding themselves. 

Comment 28 Dec 2014

Not sure how many connections you are considering, but pretty sure Ferentz traces back to NFL coaches and Hayden Fry. 

Comment 27 Dec 2014

3 years. I think Harbaugh will find himself in a much deeper hole than he expected, and despite a surprise win against MSU in Year 1, a 1-5 record in the games that matter, coupled with an 8 win Year 3 has Harbaugh scrambling for NFL. 

Comment 27 Dec 2014

I think Cincinnati in the Big XII ultimately depends on how much the conference values West Virginia. If West Virginia was the metaphorical girl the Big XII picked up for a one night stand to get you through a cold night and keep the conference from dissolving, then you pursue teams out West like BYU and Boise State, or teams in Florida like USF and UCF.  Honestly, the Big XII adding USF and UCF would probably be the easiest move to justify, as both schools would give you some TV inroads in Florida, and you could give you a recruiting edge in Florida. 

If the Big XII is looking to hold onto WVU, then you take Cincinnati. But from an on-field and money situation BSU & BYU or USF and UCF seem the safer calls.
