the football fan in me was thrilled with the result. the human side of me felt pretty awful for that kid, though. glad to see him taking it well and keeping things in perspective. good luck, blake (in all things outside of michigan football, of course).
some analysts are wrong on occasion while some analysts just have no idea what they're talking about. after robert smith tweeted that, it became pretty clear to me that he falls under the latter category.
popped in there for the first time yesterday and promptly left. there's no redeeming quality to that feature. it only drags down this incredible community that you all have built. i really appreciate the work the staff and the mods put into this space and i think you're best served by dumping this thing.
i definitely don't hate it, but i think i could fall in love with it if it included gray buckeye leaf stickers.
don't blame that assclown on the 90's. fred durst didn't really become a thing until the early aughts, which was a really weird time in pop culture. also, he's from jacksonville, florida - quite possibly america's worst city.
absolutely this. i'm sure we could reduce the commercial time in these games by 10-15 minutes and the monied interests involved would still come out just fine.
Going back to the middle of last year, this team seems to play without fear on the road / at neutral sites. I have a feeling they really break out this Saturday.
solid effort from these guys - they're going to be just fine.
i'm interested to see if this becomes one of those teams that plays looser on the road. they looked fearless on offense in blackburg and somewhat tentative while back in the shoe. as it stands, this group is on an impressive streak of away/neutral site wins. i expect them to roll in bloomington.
yep. there are some weird vibes surrounding this deal. whatever your opinions are about what the best option is at qb (SPOILER: those opinions aren't better informed than urban's), if you aren't rooting like hell for cardale, then log off and maybe consider taking this season off as a fan. i love jt and he's going to have time to build on his legacy here (maybe sooner than later), but there's a "2014" hanging from the northeast corner of Ohio Stadium that will be there for as long as football is played and it's there in large part to the play of cardale jones. let's have fun watching and get behind this dude. just my #hottake
nice post, JS. I haven't been over to CFN in a while, I'll head over and read the piece in full. thanks!

now let's do the damn thing.
that's exactly what he was doing.
i have no rooting interest between the two, but it's really a shame that texas and a&m no longer play each other.
"you guys don't all know each other?"
tim may struggles to conceal his racism towards australians.
that's a piping hot #take, bert.
ol' herbie sure is a polarizing figure. i don't have strong feelings about him personally, but i can't think of many other people i'd want doing the color commentary for the primetime games. blackledge does a serviceable job, but after that the color commentary talent across the espn family of networks and elsewhere drops off pretty significantly. just consider what we had to deal with from the booth last saturday.
the midnight yell seems like a fun tradition if the youtube clips i've come across do it any justice. also, the aggie war hymn is a pretty catchy fight song. thousands of people singing it in unison basically a cappella is, objectively, kinda awesome.
fuck. for the first time ever i was going to be in america with football tickets in hand during a dubgate weekend. this is heartbreaking.
anyone up for pouring out a drink in honor of the fallen dubgate at out-r-inn on the friday night / sat morning of that weekend?
when you start to despair, just remember all the tv's in new jersey.
DJ - great point about Urban's tenure being on solid footing. Think about the man's genius for coaching and the only hurdle being his relentless drive for perfection. Consider the possibilities of that same genius now having harnessed his chi - it's about to get historic.
i'm with you woody. i know the offense was a little frustrating to watch last week, but i still had a blast watching these guys play, because you know what? the offense may have been sputtering but the defense was awesome! there are legit playmakers on that side of the ball and their story has been overshadowed since january somewhat understandably in light of the braxton/jt/cardale and zeke for heisman narratives.
if these dudes repeat it will be because the silver bullets saved the day on one or two occasions. and it will be fun as hell to watch when it happens.
that twitter beef: tl;dr
Bosa comin', yo!
