How about we Buckeye fans stop treating Tom Herman as "one of us" now. He's the competition now, no different than Pete Carroll, Nick Saban or Mark Dantonio. Excuse me if I'm officially over five posts a week smooching his ass. I hope we win every reciting battle over Texas and I hope we beat the shit out of him on the field when necessary. I don't really care if he gets fired after 2 years.
What killed Ohio State's playoff chances last season was not the lack of a conference championship, per se, but rather what then conference championship would have offered them: a chance to get another big win.
Last year the only good win they had was over Michigan. They needed to beat that undefeated Iowa team to burnish their resume. This year they will have 4 wins at least as good as their 1 from last year. The lack of an opportunity to get another top 10 win won't hurt this year.
I think it was probably a catch too, but he only has himself to blame. He bobbled it on his own. I really wanted it for him because I would be a huge confidence boost for a guy who is clearly one of the most talented WRs on the seen.
Haha. Yes of course I do. I was hoping Jason would have pulled some vintage 2007-2009 re: urban comments during the recent 10th Anniversary celebration. I assure you he has them locked away in some past CMS. Maybe he'll leak my comments Access Hollywood-style if I ever try and run for governor of Ohio.
I also don't think the Meyer hate was too bad after that NCG, but I think it peaked when that recruit flipped because Urban told him he had a dream that God told him he should come to Florida. That and his retirement/unretirement were probably the worst of the anti-Urban vitriol at 11W.
I have to agree with the penalty call. They did receive a warning prior to the 15 yard penalty.
Penn State is showing a lot more life than I expected. Minnesota and Maryland aren't bad teams and I expected at least one of them to beat them. With their off week and the night game atmosphere I'm moving that game up my worry meter a couple of notches.
Anyone want to start a thread complaining about the missed extra point? Or the backup center's holding penalty that nullified the touchdown? I want to bitch about something.
But remember that game wasn't fair because Stanford had to play in the Central time zone.
Feeling great about the running game. That was my biggest concern coming into the season. I know Weber was highly touted, but you never know until you see it in an actual game. But I was very impressed with him, especially his patience in waiting for holes to open. And looked good blocking too! Samuel looked good too and McCall looked super fast.
I'll be bummed if it turns out this was for K. Unauthorized presence.
Has it been 10 years already? Congratulations on a big milestone and good luck in the next 10.
I wonder what happens next.
Is there any sort of link to what # people are wearing for those of us who are here but don't know these guys by sight?
Didn't Matta recruit a bunch of one-and-done guys just last year?
I'll show myself out.
Santa Barbara's Druid play had been solid all season. Glad we were able to take advantage and come home with the title.
I've always wondered from whom are they guarding it.
I'm pretty sure Urban Meyer doesn't need a Coach of the Year trophy to know he's one of the best coaches out there. Every night he lays his head down on the kind of pillows that only $5 or $6 million per year can buy.
Awesome. I heard "Fairies Wear Boots" on the radio in the car this morning and thought, "This is an album I haven't listened to in a long time."
Careful Rob. Someone might go dig up comments from 11W circa 2007/2008 concerning Urban F Meyer.
I'm walking past a lot of goobers dressed up in Iowa shit in the Phoenix airport. They must be connecting from LA back to whatever bumblefuck cornfield they came from. I'm making eye contact with each one and shaking my head to let them know that they have shamed the big ten conference and themselves.
Sorry, bud. Next time you see Elliott in Columbus will be at the grand opening of Zeke's Crop Top Bar & Grill.
Why are you sure Beck's a nice guy? Just about every football coach I've met is kind of an asshole.
Buckeyes will have a huge advantage in the "eye test" when compared to UNC. Remember the committee is made up of old football coaches and players, not sports writers or Jeff Sagarin-type stat heads. That may be the edge the Buckeyes need because neither team's resume will be great.
I know people like the Bosa hit because of the result, but I'm partial to the one where Rudock got sandwiched by Perry and Washington (I think). I was pretty surprised he got up from that.
Rick Van Brimmer and the rest of his stooges in the Trademark office are total a-holes, preferring bullying and deep pockets to actual rule of law. I fully understand the need to protect an organization's intellectual property but their behavior is way out of line with every other major college athletic department and professional sports franchise in the United States.
