I wish I could go with you, but I have to skip Blossom. Got too many things going on this summer. Magnaball will be it for me

It's a delicious bourbon. My go to's (as a poor phd student) are EC 12, Bulleit, and Elmer T. They're all very reasonably priced and delicious neat, which is my usual method.

Ha! Yep, came in to post something something red bull Coach Coombs something something planting flags.

Ha! He said with Notre Dame you don't always win but it comes even more with that education aspect. Judging from his comments about Ohio State it seems like he wants to win, so hopefully that's a good sign.

Terrible argument -- The team that Cardale inherited, and that JT helped to develop, was not the same team JT was playing with at the beginning of the year. I hate hypotheticals, but I'd venture to say that Cardale would have lost to VT as well with the way the oline was playing. He wouldn't have had time to make any throws and he's not a scrambler. 

Also, it seems that you forget how incredibly accurate JT is and you conveniently leave out the Michigan State game in your criticism of JT. I have no doubt that JT would have led us to a national championship the same as Cardale did. JT got us to the B1G champ game in the first place with the chance to get to the playoffs. I'm not saying he should be the starter, Cardale is also an incredible a qb, but to throw him under the bus by acting that he had the same team that Cardale did is ridiculous. Luckily they are both our dogs in this fight.

This will obviously be a devastating blow to recruiting for the National Champs. I'm seriously concerned that we will not recover. 

Seriously though, this will pass and Urban will reel in a large percentage of top kids, the staff will develop them, and the Bucks will consistently be competing at the top. Anyone concerned with this is either a UM fan wishing they had the success of the Buckeyes or really bored.

The lyrics are the start of the 2nd verse of Carmen Ohio and describe "these days" (from the song maybe referring to college days, but in this instance referring to the holiday season) as being priceless, some of the best days on earth.

Nice card!

PSU has 72 scholarship players this year. They were scheduled to have 65 but the NCAA reduced penalties on them last year. Not sure where the 50s number keeps coming from. But regardless, they are not better than MSU -- although I was impressed with their defense. 

It's all in here:

Tyler Boyd, Dorian Johnson, Alex Bookser, and Jordan Whitehead are the ones that come to mind. Not a ton but Boyd and Johnson would be nice to have right now.

I am very pleased with the improvement the D is making. It wasn't going to happen overnight with this many underclassmen starting. All in all I think Urban's genius is starting to shine through. It was difficult to see how well he was developing his players through the first few years, but if the fans aren't yet believers in his ability to develop his recruits then they aren't paying attention. 

One thing I really noticed today were tackles being made with aggression. Players were angry and hitting hard, and not the arm tackles we grew accustomed to, but solid form tackles driving the offensive player into the ground. Frazier's caused fumble and a few hard hits by Vonn Bell come to mind. This is a great sign. We struggled at the beginning of the season, but are improving each game. That's a sign of good coaching and focused players. 

I couldn't be more excited for Saturdays.

This thread title sucks. I came in freaked out that Meechy left or something serious had happened. Poor form OP.
