I attacked no one, threw no one under the bus. Was down voted for expressing my opinion( my guess is the good ole boys with itchy trigger fingers). Are you ready to throw the two down-voters in jail? I hope not but then again it is what is being recommended, right?
IMO it's bringing the B1G some credibility. He has it, Urban has it.... Err, another coach has it (ok, not). so why not let the coaches promote the B1G? Also IMO, Dantonio is Tressel with a bit (ok a lot) more swag. He gets it, brought credibility to Sparty which will ultimately bring cred to the B1G, what's not to like?
No, no no... Are we f'ing China. Let people be douchebags and let the the masses determine they are douchebags. Quit limiting people, thoughts and ideas. Just because it doesn't fit the masses narrative doesn't mean it is wrong for Christ sakes. There are morons on here ( include me if you want) that rip people right and left for providing an opinion. No need to be judge and jury, no need to be arbitrary and judgmental. If you want the quasi perspective, limiting threads and topics and If that's what you want then be ready for the same ole, same ole good ole boys club. I imagine this site has as big of readership/clicks as it ever has so now it wants to be selective? Especially against someone who has a high number of helmet stickers as you say, let's not be naive. One idiot down voting every post is not worthy of censorship. One idiot down voting every post doesn't demand a broad over-reach. I doubt the masses are leaving the site because the one idiot down voted people. Stop the foolish thoughts.
It's past midnight and *ichigan still sucks!!!!!
I think we win the game IF:
* we jump out to an early lead and make Sparty try to play catch up (like 17 points)
* we throw them off by engaging our tight ends early and often
* QB draws just enough to throw the blitzes off
* 3rd and manageable vs third and long
I hope and pray to see the day when we surpass scum in an era where it is harder to win then it was when playing high schools! I think it is a 13 game spread now so I am assuming 12 after this year. I don't know. Maybe we get down to 8-9 gap before they get back to respectability and then it will take some time if we play that 50% for OSU and 50% for Scum like we did in the 10 year war.
I know I am more then half way past the life expectancy for modern day males so while I believe I still have plenty of time left it certainly makes you start considering things when one is on the backside of that mountain and heading down.
And when that day comes, my ashes will be grey (I presume) and I will put in my will that they spray a scarlet, white and black stripe down the middle. And after everyone admires that and takes pictures, throw in some Gentlemen Jack into my urn so I can enjoy it as well! Then the after-world will be right for me, even if I head into with a hangover! Just like all the fond memories of past Buckeye games, the Varsity Club, Hiney Gate, National Championship in Arizona! All the stars will be in alignment, the pearly gates will open up and to my joy instead of Saint Peter, Saint Wayne Woodrow Hayes will be there to greet me, kick me in the ass and say, its about time son! Go Bucks!
Being on the downhill sled to dead, I have seen enough Buckeye football from the 10 year war (and before) to the Cooper era where it was pure hell. This to me is just another era in our storied rivalry and one that more than makes up for us losing almost all of our games with Cooper (to ScuM). Sweet sweet revenge for sure but yearn for the rivalry to return to the 10 year war days. I don't see them making the same coaching hires as they have the last two, will get a big name in there and be relevant again in three years just in time to ask Kalis how it was going Ofer against the Buckeyes (yes that sweet sweet revenge again). Go Bucks!
Yes this is the I told you so commentary by Dmac. And in his other rant I asked him what his answer is then to solve this problem. Instead he just wanted to spout some insane facts. So Dmac if what you say is true should we just watch the Buckeyes fail in big games as you suggest or should Urban go with another QB then? I don't agree with your commentary, I think it is one of those that can have points of view on either side. But what you don't share is your answer to the problem then. I think we would all love to hear your suggestions that Urban should deploy so we don't fail in the upcoming big games.
Have a dual quarterback backfield where the D doesn't know to whom the ball is going to. JT or Braxton. JT gets the ball he can hand off to Brax or pass (read option). Brax gets the ball and he can run the wildcat and potentially hit JT on a wheel route out of the backfield as well as other routes by recievers.
Our O line will be stellar for sure and our other offense weapons are there for passes from either.
How in the hell do you prepare for that? Most offensive backfield schemes have a RB or no RB. No other RB can do what Braxton could do with the ball in terms of pass or run.
Jury is still out. However I believe Meatchicken and Meatchicken state both knew last year you could beat OSU with the pass.. At this stage I am not sure they can fall back on that. Most are trying to do it via bear D so I am still unsure if our pass D has been truly tested. Jury is still out.
Too predictable, just like seven nation army. Just because everyone else is doing it makes it more irritating that we might do it. If we go down the path of an alternative uniform, Buckeye colors allow for some very cool combinations, and not all black or almost all black (Maryland). Maybe just do something different with the helmet or pants. And as for the seven nation army chant, that was so 2010. It would be awesome if we started our own trend and let the others follow us.
So what is your strategy then if you are concerned for J.T.'s arm strength heading into the rest of the year?
I think what you are trying to say is he may not be a complete quarterback yet because of his arm strength (although I am not sure I agree). Not sure anyone is ready to start analyzing him for his NFL prospects either. Instead you kind of are throwing him under the bus with your headline.
So name your replacement if you think he can't get it done. Who on this roster is gonna be better in all facets for which the position that we should put in instead? I bet you can't name someone better than JT. All he does is win and distribute and score TD's. I'll take that over someone with a better arm who might throw interceptions, can't execute the read-option or can't read defenses.
Not going to down vote you for your opinion, just think it is off base.
You are doing the beat work then. Tress would be happy!
My two cents is ESPN has locked up the SEC fan base. So in previous years they were throwing most teams non-SeC under the proverbial bus. Now that they know they have the SEC fan base locked up they are playing to the other conferences fan bases to keep their viewership up.
F%ck them. They make money off the SEC and will always put their interests first. Do NOT be fooled by this play.
Don't forget the B1G network negotiations are in play. Money will be king but Delaney will have his share of negotiation power if he perceives ESPN has been keeping his league down from a negativity perspective.
Who is Katy Perry?
Good points. You hit a sacred cow the Carlos Hyde reference/example so I understand the downvotes even though your point is very valid. I guess trying to mesh emotions and logic don't always work.
I'm with you that this kid should have been put on probation but not lose his scholarship. I guess they are trying to make an example out of him. That said maybe instead of the scholly loss, let him go to football practice everyday and visit Mr. Schlegel for his punishment until the season is over!
Ummm, I don't know... but may be his point is the forum was asked a question and he offered his opinion? Just sayin....
Yep - William and Mary plays in a league that features powerhouses Elon and Drexel and Delaware. I am of the opinion Navy's a much tougher opponent. William and Mary RPI #153. Navy RPI 79. Navy expected to win 9-10 games this year. W&M?
How and what exactly is this txt thing?
We will miss Devin when he is gone. Opponents D has to account for him because of his speed. That opens up other receivers. Devin may not lead the team in receptions this year (maybe he will) but it is because of his threat for the deep ball that will allow others to prosper.
This is a sad statement... Only 6 beers during an 11 second block? I am disappointed in you sir! :)
sneaky good key lime pie... my fav! +1 to pull that off in a traditional tailgating environment!
+1 - on the road against a triple option team is a challenge even for Navy's conference foes who prepare for them every year. with 9 new offense starters that took 30 minutes and a few adjustments before scoring 21 in the second half (7 we for d fumble for TD) I believe the glass is half full.
+1 - I think the challenge for some is not understanding the challenge of the Navy unique offense. They only want the "glory days" every game. Let's see what we do against VT this week to gauge if our D and linebackers have stepped up their game.
