An ideal scenario would be to rotate chicago/nyc with the Big East.
Zone defense is fine against these glorified community colleges, but they need to can it once they face real competition. Way too many open jumpers and open lanes. Cuse has done this for years and it doesnt work come tourney time.
Navy!! Pays their coach more than Indiana and Rutgers. Come on man! You gotta be kidding me!
1) i doubt marshall cares what random ppl on the internet tweet about him.
2) he has screwed up multiple times now and is careless and reckles on the field. He needs to take a break and spend time on his ballhandling skills.
3) jim tressel's least fav moment = whenever marshall touches the ball.
Anything short of 40-0 would be disappointing.
Jim delany made a great choice in adding umd and rutgers
1) media exposure
2) better recruiting
4) gateway to further expansion
If he didn't add them, he wouldn't be doing his job.
If teams practice at 6am, I fail to see how a noon kickoff would be detrimental to their well being.
Kickoff should be at 1030am.
Braxton Miller. Period. Go back and watch his highlights if you doubt me.
Gameday was cool...10 years ago.
They should just stick to the SEC - a conference in a region that is still living like it was 100 years ago.
Who needs a time machine when all you need to do is walk across the Ohio river?
The only scouting report you'll need:
Why is it so windy at illinois memorial stadium?
Because their offense sucks and their defense blows.
Multi year scholarships have positive and negative attributes.
Pos: gives students a security blanket
Neg: that security blanket removes a lot of pressure to perform.
A scholarship is a salary. Just like with any other job, if you don't do your job you can get fired.
I see both sides of the argument. The South, being anti-employee, anti-union, and anti-pretty much everything else, would most likely side with Coach Miles point of view. So it is not surprising to see it practiced in the SEC.
I am sorry, but to be a student athlete at tOSU, you need to have a credible level of maturity. Based on his actions, he lacks the necessary maturity to be a student athlete at tOSU. In all honesty, he should transfer to a school with fewer responsibilities and concentrate more on his priorities in life.
"The conference now stretches 1,308 miles, from Lincoln, Nebraska to Piscataway, New Jersey."
Not really a big deal. The Pac has fewer teams and stretches 1,539 miles from Tucson to Seattle. The American stretches 1,694 miles from Dallas to Storrs, CT. The ACC runs 1,489 miles from Boston to Miami. Big 12 runs 1,463 miles from Lubbock to Morgantown.
I am sorry, but I find it extremely difficult to believe that 10 practices in spring, 4 months away from football season, will have any significant positive impact on player development. You will need a heck of a lot more than 10 measly practices to do anything substantial.
1) the average fan doesn't care about high school football.
2) if you get off work at 5 and the game starts at 8, you should be able to make the game unless you live in Ashtabula.
3) what percent of fans travel from outside the CMH area? 15%? It is not a huge number.
"Personal issues" this time of year = grades. He probably flunked a class or two.
Don't forget the 2010 Iowa/GT orange bowl.
Bases on Columbus' high TV ratings for NBA games, coupled with the recent low attendance for the CBJ, it might be best if the Cavs and CBJs switch cities.
Attendance would probably improve in both cities.
