I just don't understand why fans of teams that win big put down the losing team that their team just beat badly? When you call Nebraska a paper tiger, then you are just putting down your own team. It makes a great win into a crappy win. Why o why??????? Stop!! Nebraska is a good team. They had one close loss to a very good Wisconsin team that the Bucks barely beat. It was a great win by the Buckeyes.
You should always lift up your opponents. It makes your resume look better!!
Mark my words, if Herman doesn't stay in Houston, he's going to Texas.
Finebaum said a couple of days ago that 3 years ago, Texas boosters offered Saban $100,000,000 to come to U of Texas. So this proves that money is no object for UT. If Houston does not get into the BIG XII, then I think it's a done deal that Herman ends up at UT.
Mark my word, if OSU wins 20 games or more they are IN!!! Would it be the best thing for the team? Probably not. The NIT would probably be better because they could win multiple games and get more experience. That is counting B1G tournament wins also.
It doesn't have to be official practice time. You tell them that they need to shoot 300 free throws before hitting the showers. Coaches aren't present so it doesn't count as official practice time.
Ok, you guys can down vote me all you want but OSU's free throw shooting is abysmal. Anyone who knows anything about sports and basketball tell me the one thing that improves free throw shooting percentage. I think it's called repetition and how do you get reps for shooting free throws? In practice. Who is in charge of practices? Coaches. This is on coaching. Sorry to all the Matta worshipers for bringing up a negative thing on Matta, but this is just bringing up the facts. Don't get me wrong, I like Matta too, but there is no excuse for being such a poor foul shooting team.
Not wanting to be a statistic nazi or anything but it should read in the first paragraph that the Bucks trailed by 2 at the half. Just an FYI.
Clemson just didn't have the defense to pull it off. If the Bucks don't get Natty next year, they will the following year. GO BUCKS!!!
Good luck to Dontre for next year!! Go Bucks!!
I don't expect a Natty next year either but look at Clemson and how many they replaced, expecially on the line and then I think that it's at least possible. Not likely but still possible.
I agree as the stars just lined up against us this year where as it was the opposite last year. If we lose any other game besides Michigan St., we are in. If ttun doesn't commit an _ichagan move at the end of Michigan St. game on last play, we are in. It just wasn't meant to be this year.
People all over, including here, are being quite hard on the Buckeyes. Their average margin of victory is in the top 5 in the country. I agree they could have done better in many games but that just shows you how high the expectations were this year.
In a vacuum, Rutgers would be the better job (B1G money, new AD, etc.) but Syracuse isn't in the same division as Ohio State, Michigan State, and Michigan.
I didn't even know Syracuse was in the B1G.
Did Beck ever get this game plan approved by Meyer?
I continue to be amazed by Beck's play calling. I'm getting sick of it.
Beck needs some lessons on play calling. How in the world do you not use Elliot, the best back in college football, when it's 1st and goal???!!!
The whole time I was reading this, I was waiting for "Halloween fools!!!" But it never came, darn it.
I'm against these dui checkpoints. They are against the constitution but no one complains because they think they make us safer. Anyone willing to give up their liberty for greater safety deserves neither. There, I said it.
Then there is the whole idea that nothing good happens on the street after midnight. Stay inside guys. It's not worth it.
PEOPLE!!! Read the comments before posting comments pleeeeeeaaaaase. Stanley isn't saying that these are the 4 teams that he predicts to be in playoff. He is saying that if the season were to end TODAY, this is how he would vote. Just like when the committee last year voted 3 SEC teams in the first playoff rankings. In hindsight, it was absurd but it wasn't at the time, close, but not totally. You could make an argument for Stanley's picks at least if the season were to end today.
It's one thing for a fan to make a sign that is classless and full of hate but for GD and for Pizza Suck to do it is completely different and in a different league of classless.
I doubt Urban slept but he did sweep through opponents to NC with 1 top 50 pick in draft. (Wink)
It is so ridiculous that people blame Urban for Hernandez. It's against all logic and reason. Think about this... What if a player committed a crime playing college ball, and it doesn't matter what crime, and then how about we blame his high school coach for it. People don't know how to think anymore.
I thought Eli Apple was not continuing his football career because of concussions?
Well given that financial planning is my job, I think I have some basis for saying it would a terrible decision, at least financially.
I think this is precisely your problem. You are just seeing the financial reasons and dollar signs in this equation. I'm not saying this isn't important but leaving college to play in the NBA deals with more than just money matters. The college game is a completely different animal than the NBA and maybe, just maybe, Russell wants to have another year of the college experience. Once you leave college, you are done for life in that arena and the rest of your playing days is in the NBA. Ya think maybe he might want another year in the college experience and all the positives that come with it? I don't know, but it's his decision and to say it would be dumb not to go to the NBA is quite presumptuous.
Ohhh ok. got it. Thanks. makes sense.
