As for Coach Briles, I could respect his opinion that Baylor deserved to be selected (even though I don't agree), but I didn't respect his stridency and indignation.  Just say, "I'm disappointed we didn't make the playoff, but we expect to next year", and move on.

Saw her in concert because I was chaperoning my kid and some friends.  Not bad.

Dunn has always gained yards when given the ball at tOSU, and with the current O line humming the way it is, he would fill in more than adequately for Zeke if needed.  If he transfers somewhere where he can get at least 15 or 20 carries a game, I'd hate to see him go but have no doubt he'd do well, maybe have a shot at the League.

There are some really cheap Android tablets on the market, but I would think even those should give you more than an hour.  But it would be interesting to know the name of the manufacturer.

Now, y'all know there's certain things folks just don't do to the Crimson Tide!

Devin Smith leaving that cornerback in the dirt, and Steve Miller Band's pick six too...

Good living.

Bama, but not by much.  Been wanting the Buckeyes to get a piece of Oregon since, well, the 2010 Rose Bowl.  I get tired of hearing about how wonderful they are.

Too bad they Buckeyes couldn't have punched out SFU Jameis along the way too, just have to settle for beating the team that crushed the Semi Noles.

Has there been another running back like Zeke in college football since 2000?

The party's been over in Tuscaloosa for some time now, but the Bama fans still feel entitled.  smh.

Here's an idea...maybe the moderators could just close the duplicate threads after they appear?

If Paterno was so "senile", how did he "win" football games?  Why must so many insist that he get credit for contests that were won by other players and coaches while he was out of his wits?  You can't have it both ways.

Sorry, I'm not buying.

I've not yet watched the NCG as second time yet, but I did watch the Sugar Bowl again this past weekend on my DVR.

In the first few minutes of the recording, we see some post-game wrap up from the Rose Bowl, including Herbie's "Can we put to bed the notion that Oregon is soft and can't play physical" comments.  Not his exact words, but I'm sure most everyone here has seen that.

Herbie wansn't wrong to say that, it's just that Oregon's Rose Bowl romp over FSU fooled a lot of people.  I think the truth is that FSU wasn't nearly as good this year as last year, they weren't well prepared to play Oregon (I'm looking at YOU, Jimbo) and they gave up after the Ducks cashed in on their turnovers in the second half.  Fools' gold.

And the other truth is that Oregon is soft and can't play physical--at least, when they are on the same field as the Buckeyes!

I'm with you guys on the Penn State thing, but if we discuss it here you just have guys come along to remind us that it's now been decided that the NCAA doesn't have "jurisdiction" over what happened there.  Not saying they're wrong about what is going on now, but I don't understand why some people don't understand why what is going on is wrong.  

I hope that makes sense to somebody out there.  I give up...

The rotation finally was implemented to the fullest in the Championship game, where everyone believed it would be critical.  Although the Buckeye offense was so dominant in the second half that the defense was on the field for less than ten minutes, if I'm not mistaken.  But there was never a significant dropoff when guys like Schutt, Munger, and Lewis were out there.  I'd expect those guys to pick up where they left off in September.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

You know, you Bert gets a lot of flack here, but he's starting to make some headway at Arkansas.  When he was at Wisconsin, the thing that really annoyed me was that he would really run up the score on some weak sisters, but even that is understandable in this day and age.  But he didn't do very well against the Buckeyes.  Although, that Badger win in Madison in 2010 really stung.

And I would think Larry Johnson is going to be able to have continued success over the next few years.  Did a great job this season, pretty much what was expected I would think.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

I was thinking the same thing about Noah Brown.  He's twenty pounds bigger than Spencer, so if he can play the same way, he could bring the outside/downfield blocking to a whole new level.  +1

Comment 18 Jan 2015

Gotta wonder about those golden cleats that Marshon Lynch wanted to wear.  Green Bay is still a tough date, don't need the drama.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

That's a great video, but as others have noted Spencer's pass is easily top 10 and I think probably top 5.  Great post nonetheless.

Bosa's TD against Wisconsin was up there too.
