I disagree. Each one of his steps in coaching has been an upwards move. He got his first head coaching job at San Diego, gave them great success and took an obvious step up to the Stanford job. He gave them great success too and got the Niners job. I understand he was only at each of those jobs 3-4 seasons but jeez, it would've been stupid for him not to take the opportunity.
Herbie's haters would rather see him be a huge Buckeye fan on the air than see him actually do his job well. Herbie being really damn good at his job looks a lot better for the university than Herbie being a shameless homer on the air
This. This right here. This site rails against ESPN and uses all the worn-out 'E-SEC-PN' bias quotes but if Herbstreit would just go off the rails and say dumbass homer things about OSU, we'd love it? GTFOH with that nonsense. You can't have it both ways. It does nobody, especially OSU fans and the university itself, any good if Herbstreit is a homer. Honestly, he's the best CFB color guy they have and a lot of that is because of him being impartial and seeing the whole picture.
The only reason I end up listening to Cowherd is because the other sports radio station I get transitioned from Fox Sports to ESPN Radio a few months back. To be fair, other than Dan Patrick in the morning, Cowherd's braying is a million times more tolerable then the morons FSR has on (ahem Petros Papadakis). That being said, if I have to hear one more social commentary on the Rust Belt and how he understands the world we live in on such a deeper level, I may jump off a bridge. SVP and Russillo by far have the best commentary on college football, the best guests and the least bias of any commentators. They will talk about the SEC more than other conferences but because the conference is good, not because they have some agenda to push.
The guy made 8 extra points in the game at essentially the same distance and shanked a 19-yard field goal. Unbelievable.
This Cal-Wazzu game had 2 kicks returned for TD's, the FBS record for passing yards in a game, 119 total points, 1371 yards passing, 10 passing TDs, 155 yards in penalties, four receivers over 100 yards and a 19 yard field goal shanked at the end. And it might not be the craziest game of the day.
College football, you sly minx. You keep drawing us back in.
According to a press release from Fox Sports' website, they have deals with the Pac-12, Big 12 and Conference USA. It's spread across Fox, Fox Sports 1 and their regional FCS affiliates. I know this site isn't the biggest fans of ESPN but thank God that OSU games aren't on FOX with all those god-awful announcers (except for Gus Johnson).
Can't answer it in 100% certainty, but I can't imagine that OSU would be on CBSSN for any other games. The only reason they are for this one is that Navy has a TV deal with CBSSN for their home games through 2017 and this one's considered a home game for them. The rest of them would presumably be on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2 or BTN.
I didn't say you were delusional (though I know a few Buckeye fans that are). You're totally entitled to your opinion. I just take issue with this idea that if a person doesn't think that OSU will win a certain game that they're any less of a Buckeye fan. It's not up to anyone else to decide what level of OSU fan somebody is.
This. I hate this. Just because you are realistic enough to see Ohio State potentially losing a game doesn't diminish your fanhood. Personally, I think OSU drops one, maaaaybe 2 games this year. Apparently I'm not worthy to call myself a fan because I'm realistic. There's a difference between support and delusion.
I couldn't stop looking at it either. That and when he said at 0:06 that "the Buckeyes are certainly contrite..."
I don't think he knows what the word contrite means.
Word to that! Luckily I still have a smattering of friends that legitimately enjoy playing, so usually at least two people will be around that know how.
Happy birthday from one Aug. 20 baby to another!
First of all, congratulations 11W! The work you guys do is incredible and we are all grateful for you for enabling our Buckeye addictions.
On another note, ELEVEN WARRIORS AND I HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY?!?!?!??!?
IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!?!?!?
I agree with your overall point about it being a non-issue, but I feel like there was already an obvious reason Mike Mitchell went back to Texas.

It's like a train wreck watching him crash in that first season in F-Ville. Except the train has been talking shit that it can't back up the entire way down the tracks.
I found myself thinking that a few weeks ago. "Why don't I hate Wisconsin nearly as much as I used to?"
Oh that's right, I don't have to see this slob on my TV anymore.....
By far one of the best I've ever seen out of the flood of hype videos every year. Whether it was the Pompeii instrumental in the background or the way it was superbly cut, definitely one of my favorites. As a newbie here myself, that was one hell of a first post!
Also, Mark May can suck a bag of dicks.
What a great writer! The Gazette (somewhat of a hometown paper of mine) is lucky to get him. Looking forward to the work Kyle will bring to NE Indiana!
"Shouldn't a coach of one of the biggest programs in college football have more restraint than that?"
Sadly, I've never been to a regular season Ohio State game, but I was in attendance when they broke the spring game attendance record in '09 which is a pretty memorable moment (along with a memorable sunburn).
Luckily, I believe I'll be making my first-ever regular season trip to the Shoe this November for The Game. Words cannot describe the excitement.
Unreal is the right word. I live about an hour south of Toledo, so it's not directly affecting my family but I have plenty of friends living up there and I'm feeling for them. It's just been a weird past 12 months in general after getting triple-digit temps this past summer, this "polar vortex" winter with below-zero temps and now this? Unbelievable.
A fellow Paulding County resident! As a first-time-ever poster, I never thought I'd run into another one!
