I read it more like life support for the Vtech game due to the suspensions, injuries, and lack of proved/experienced depth. At least this year we have cohesion at the Oline with a great backfield to lean on. But it does hurt OSU's chances.
I've only gotten 10 minutes into this video and had to pause it and come over and give you my heartfelt thanks for posting this. This is simply just awesome!
Benwin, I cannot in good conscience upvote that hideous thing. I'll find some other post of yours and upvote that instead though.
I'm confused, is Sheridan predicting how many new excuses Saban would find when his team loses? If so, I'll take the over as 3.5 seems low.
This sounds more so like it could be a case of convenience in that MSU has some cover to let Cupp go in order to free up a scholarship for someone else. This is one of the better MSU classes, possibly ever, and maybe they're realizing that the success over the last couple years has opened doors that would've been otherwise shut.

Are we talking mentally, on the playing field, or both?
A&A rocked, but it would become just a 1 strategy game if you were playing with experienced player(s). In case you're interested, there's free opensource software called Triplea were you can play A&A and its many variants online or against the AI.
What was that thread about someone changing icons that evolved into an epicly long and awesome Friday GIF tradition? I'd wager some of those comments and GIFs have to be in the running . . . well if they were still around.
I'm really getting tired of seeing Meggs' name in these kinds of reports. Is he due for re-election anytime soon?
So let me get this straight, the bear gets the benefit of the doubt and the local citizens don't? How much pain would rubber bullets really do against a bear? The guy in the article says the bear is smart and if it thinks all it has to worry about with humans are some rubber bullets and maybe some dogs, how long until it is hungry enough to try feeding on a human? It is already displaying no fear of humans by climbing fences and approaching people. I mean 15 feet from that little girl is way too close to comfort and that was with an adult and a dog also nearby.
I'm all about respecting wildlife, but it is time for officials to step in when an animal becomes a danger to humans. It would do little to no harm to relocate that bear far from people's residences. Are they supposed to wait until a person is hospitalized or worse until they step in? Thank God those dogs were there that time. I have a 9mm at home, but if I had a bear climbing my fence and threatening my hypothetical daughter and dog(s) I would go buy a rifle. And then next time the bear showed up I might put some rounds down range.
Is Texas the dream job for Strong? ie, he wouldn't leave for his dream job or wouldn't leave if another program or NFL team gave him a big paycheck and maybe more control of the program? Serious question here as I really don't know much about Charlie Strong.
No idea either, got your back though.
Huh, if signing day was today there would be 4 Big10 teams in the top ten, 5 in top 25, and 8 in top 30. I'm not convinced that all those programs will be able to finish strong. But at least there's signs of progress from other teams in the conference.
It likely didn't smell like food anymore with all the processing those things go through.
Some of the MREs were alright. But my biggest beef was more so the cumulative effect of eating MRE after MRE while out in the field that played bloody havoc with my digestive system. Those things could stop Niagara falls from flowing . . .
I'll take your word for it as I wouldn't care to have tried any of the C-rats. Me, I was sufficiently disgusted with the 4 fingers of death or the veggie omelets that sometimes came in the MREs.
If I never have to eat another MRE again I'll die a happy man.
I heard he was leaving to pursue his true passion by trying to make his way as a women's lingerie model.
If a fan from say MSU or Wisky (just for this season and as long as they continue to accrue bigger bowl wins) did this, I'd be more liable to congratulate them on winning (after laughing at 59-0) then if say a Purdue or Illinois fan did it.
IMO it wasn't so much that Marshall wasn't a Group of Five team so much as their SOS was horrible. I don't think a school needs quite as much as what Cplunk says. The CFP was right to exclude Marshall when they sported such tough schools as Old Dominion, Rhode Island, and a couple 3-9 schools. Had a team like Boise State gone undefeated (game against Mississippi as well as winning the more respectable MWC) or UCF (including wins against PSU & Mizzou) they would have at least been considered for the CFP. Haven't we seen enough Midmajors win big bowl wins against top competition for them to at least earn consideration if a team not in the Group of Five has a strong season?
It's not so much the recruiting priority as it is the players that are buying into Herman's vision. I was just caught off guard that a HC with that much success on the offensive side of the ball would see more early success recruiting on the defensive side of things. It's easier to sell any offensive guy on playing for a HC who's overseen great offenses @ Ohio State and Iowa State. Not that I blame ANY kid who buys into what Herman's doing at Houston as that program's in for quite a lot of success in the next couple of years.
Tom Herman's doing work at Houston. It's surprising to see him reel in the bigger fish thus far on the defensive side of the ball. I would've figured he'd see more success recruiting for the offense. Over/Under on how many Big10 teams get outrecruited by Houston? I'm saying 9 teams. At the rate Herman's going, I wouldn't be surprised to see Houston finish with a top25 class.
"Let's pick apart Cardale Jones by comparing all of his attributes to an amalgamation of what I think are the greatest single strengths of other QBs." -NFL GM (probably)
No QB ever will stack up if you start comparing his strengths to that of a mythical QB who has the greatest anything of every QB who plays or ever played in the NFL.
