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.
Herman choked against a shitty team today fyi
I'd like to send a heartfelt FUCK YOU to anyone who says "at least we won't get killed by Alabama" here.
If he rushes for 500 yards over the next three weeks and they go 3-0, he will win it.
That's why he's the interim coach.
Kudos to Cameron Johnston. As much as I groaned every time he came in to punt deep in PSU territory, you can't argue with the results. He was perfect last night.
I've been thinking about him this morning since I found out that the Michigan goat is also one of these Australian punting imports. I wonder if his lack of football background and instincts that come from a lifetime of watching the game contributed to his monumentally boneheaded decision. I know it's unlikely that Cam will ever be in a similar situation (especially with that magnitude of leverage), but I bet the coaches bring it up to him this week a couple of times just in case.
Ole Miss and Northwestern have really good wins and should probably be in.
Penn State and Georgia do not have good wins and should be out.
Bottom line: polls (and especially the Coaches' one) are stupid. Ignore them for a happier life.
Just read it. That's journalism with an agenda to be sure.
Haha. Did you know he could also do a rubik's cube really fast?
James Laurinaitis' father was a pro wrestler.
Craig Krenzel was a molecular genetics major.
Haha. So this is what 8-0 gets you? I wonder if the Texas quarterbacks have Twitter. Or that guy from. Auburn.
Those were really fun runs from Zeke. The last one was an especially pleasant surprise because I was really unsure the whole time if the penalty was on the Buckeyes and if it would be coming back.
But I hate, hate, hated the use of him on the last drive. For a guy that had three big hitters right up the middle, I have no idea why they tried to stretch him out way wide when they needed to burn the clock and move the chains.
Oh well, it worked out but a couple more first downs would have given him a good shot at 300 yards.
The guys who love Christian Hackenberg?
Notre Dame is not a Jesuit school. It is run by the Order of the Holy Cross.
Only people from 11 of 14 SEC schools know how to write.
How about Illinois rising up to a 2.7% chance of beating the Buckeyes!
That 2-0 start has them pumped down in Champaign.
While I understand where the "Just Enjoy the a Win" club is coming from, I disagree that we should be happy with a performance like this. How else are we supposed to enjoy these games if we're not looking for something approaching perfection. Did anyone think they were going to lose to Hawaii? Does anyone think that they can possibly lose to NIU or Indiana or Rutgers, even if they play well below their potential?
Perhaps it's unfair, but the true opponents for this year's team are not the schools on the schedule, but rather the expectations. By that measure yesterday was an L.
I don't know if he has a Twitter account but if he does he should go ahead and delete it. I can't imagine the storm of shit that is going to rain down on him from Ohio.
(all well deserved btw)
I'd like to think that he had some kind of inside joke bet with someone about how many times he could say "bloody their nose" in one broadcast. Like when th Supertroopers worked cat meows into that traffic stop. But the likelier explanation is that he's just a washed up old meathead.
A phone? Is that one of the selling points?
I'm sure we'll find out this weekend. I can't envision a scenario where the benches aren't emptied. We'll find out whose being red shirted and who is not.
I will say that Eli Apple owes Braxton Miller a pizza this week. I thought the VT fullback (!) breaking his ankles on the TD run would be the juke highlight of the week. But there's making a guy whiff and then there's whatever Braxton did. A whole other level.
I believe Christian Hackenburg is only considered a first round QB because people know that the Browns always have a first round pick.
Congratulations to Jason and the whole staff. I've been reading 11W long enough to remember when everyone here hated Urban Meyer! Glad I finally have the opportunity to support the site in a more consistent way.
As of 12:55 pm, Dow down 148.
Come on, 12W!
