Rudock will work well in a pro style attack, however will their offensive line be able to keep him off the turf or healthy? Everyone can dismiss Gardner, but that kid was hell for our defense. Take away that element of breaking containment/scrambling and we crush them badly instead of close games over the last three years.
I remember watching that live. It was insane! I thought Spike Lee was going to die.
To have the longevity that Edwin Moses had in a sprinting event is truly remarkable. Early in his career he was able to simply destroy everyone with his natural ability, but as he aged his technique and endurance improved so he could still beat the younger guys.

In my opinion it depends on what time of day the game is. Ohio State and Penn State own the night games.
Yeah....ESPN always seems to forget about MSU. I would take the Ohio State/MSU 1-2 against any 1-2 in America last season and I'd say the same for the upcoming season. Wisconsin was very good, Minnesota was good, and Penn State, Maryland and Rutgers we're decent. Nobody is saying the B1G is a great conference, but they are far from atrocious.
If the B1G is atrocious, what conference is good?
The NFL already has embraced the spread. All of today's modern offenses use some variation of spread concepts in their passing and running packages.
It will be the deepest team in recent memory; especially on the offensive side of the ball. If Coach Johnson works his magic on the defensive line depth, then the defense won't be far behind.
I find it pathetic that a player as great as Jordan would actually take the time to make an average Joe ex-college player feel bad about playing by insulting him. I mean really? You'd think that would be beneath a guy with all he's accomplished. Sad really.
Kind of like Craig T. Nelson.
Those are some massive rings!
My favorite crystal ball 2.0!
I agree. It's kind of reminiscent of Nebraska in mid 1990's. Didn't matter if you had Frazier, Berringer or Frost the offense was a monster because of the offensive line and skill position guys.
After reports came out about J.T. taking more repetitions and recovering quicker, my initial thoughts of Cardale taking the job and owning it after the spring are now not as strong. I will state on record that I think the competition is between those two guys. Braxton still can't throw and isn't taking any reps. Couple that with the rust/stagnation of not playing a down since January of 2014; he's a long shot at best to win the job in the fall.
I would elect Bauserman for a series if we we're playing in AA. I would like to see a couple of Michigan fans get destroyed by a rocket fired into the fifth row.
I think the NCAA rules on these situations are pointless, draconian, etc...but I cannot believe a guy that wants to play this year would take an unnecessary risk like this. Even if nothing comes of it, there is still going to be media coverage and creation of a potential distraction. No one can tell me that he didn't know that this would cause an issue! Seriously, wait until late January of next year and you can hawk all of the products you want and it won't be an issue.
I'm liking the sound of this Darron Lee/Tyvis Powell hybrid guy!
Its really hard to know how good of a job he did without knowing the inner details of how things went down with Coach Tressel and how we got Coach Meyer on board. I think it's best not to speculate on a deeper level unless you know the inner workings of the athletic department. Being naive to them, I'll give him a B to B+.
I voted, and will as much as possible.
They'll be looping that game all off-season long to remind them of what happened last year. I expect Foster to have something new ready because he's a phenomenal coordinator, but he won't have the luxury of playing against an inexperienced offensive line and QB. I expect something like a 42-16 type of win. I think Virginia Tech will be a good team, but I think we could be looking at a VERY special Ohio State team in 2015.
Another guy that I think will have to step up big is Corey Smith. He has shown glimpses of being a dangerous deep threat last season and I think he'll have to be even better to fill in the void left by Devin Smith. Having him and Michael Thomas working in tandem will be a thing of beauty.
The NFL and NCAA football will continue on unimpeded. The thing I like is that players are starting to understand the risks that they're taking being out there. The NFL and NCAA should make the risks VERY transparent. If they make the decision to take the risk for the big dollars/scholarship, then it's on them.
Another part of this equation I like is that we're hopefully going to see more inventiveness in safety technology for the players. What I hope is that we can get the game to a point where the risks of major head injuries are minimal.
Prometheus was a disappointment for me too. It turned an original concept into an alien ripoff.
The Departed. I heard from everyone that it was good and I kind of walked away going meh...
