What a nice story. Love to see him do well. The money that Ed Warinner has earned recent buckeye o-linemen, you gotta think any O-Line recruit turning down OSU is crazy.

I mean, if you are now the not so successful head coach at the University of Texas San Antonio, wouldn't you engage in collective outrage that makes you look like a competent football coach?

So apparently Miami lost because 1) They didn't play Miami Football 2) McGahee got hurt 3) Somebody got some Tostitos Chips 4) Dan Fouts is the arbiter of truth 5) Their players didn't think they should still be playing

Comment 10 Dec 2014

This may be overly personal analysis, but this article reads a lot like it was written by someone who didn't want to go to Ohio State, but rather aspired for a University ranked higher, and was forced to go to Ohio State because it was the best school they got into. Seems like the author is projecting an Ivy tower vision for the school, rather then accepting OSU for OSU. 

My problem with this article is that it ignores context. My degree from The Ohio State University gets more valuable every year because the university continues to improve.

This article upset me, because I feel athletics was used as a straw horse to make really unfair arguments about the University, and athletics are always a fun punching bag for the Ivory tower folks who think the only reason they don't get whatever they want is because athletics.

I saw a perfect scheme for the Wisconsin offense, executed to near perfection by the Defense. Now the Wisconsin offense was rather one dimensional, so I don't think they Silver Bullets are back yet, however, I think they will reemerge next season. I saw players that Urban Meyer recruited like Vonn Bell and Joey Bosa making plays in the defense UFM wanted, I think that progression will only surge next year and the defense will truly be something to behold. 

Comment 07 Dec 2014

I disagree with your underlying premise. Virginia Tech should be at least an 8 win team next year, Northern Illinois has won 10 games or more every year since 2009. I'd advise you to look at Florida State's OOC schedule and suggest we have the weaker schedule. 

Comment 06 Dec 2014

Finebaum is just parroting what his living in the last decade fanbase wants to hear. Also he's doing ESPN's bidding by laying the framework for expanding the playoffs (IE, OSU/FSU/Alabama/Oregon won but they didn't play the best team")

Comment 05 Dec 2014

Not to be a nay sayer, and I don't think the comparison is fair, but wasn't that one of the arguments people made in favor of drafting JaMarcus Russell in the 1st round?

Comment 04 Dec 2014

It make sense because

1) He has incentive to leave Oklahoma (It doesn't appear a playoff birth is on the horizon). 

2) He has ties to Ohio and transitively the OSU-scum rivalry

3) He has a national championship

4) His bad seasons are 8 win years (proven winner)

It makes sense because on the surface Stoops seems like someone who could be persuaded to come to scUM, and he has a record that he will restore the glory of Michigan by having consistent 9 or 10 win seasons. 

Comment 04 Dec 2014

Yes. Florida State needs to win out in my opinion. Georgia Tech after beating Georgia will be the closest thing resembling a playoff team that FSU has played all year. If FSU loses on neutral ground they are in trouble assuming they are the only team that loses in the Top 6. FSU has not played like a playoff in the majority of its game, and a Ga Tech loss confirms they aren't able to beat elite teams. Ohio State beat MSU @ MSU. It's not a discussion in my mind. 

Comment 02 Dec 2014

Well, we need some real help, but the Committee appears to have set up the rationale to keep OSU out. Wisconsin only at #13, and Minnesota drops out of the rankings. Sure seems like the Committee was willing to keep Minny ranked as long as it was good to sell matchups, and once that was done drop them like a ton of bricks. I really think Minnesota is a Top 20 team, but the Committee can't let us have that. GO GEORGIA TECH!

Getting Bo Pelini wouldn't be an issue, his price certainly would be. My guess is that Pelini as DC would require basically a guarantee that once Urban left Bo was in charge. 

I wouldn't want Pelini as DC, don't think he has the right personality for it. Also, I think some place like Pittsburgh would be wise to snatch him up.
