Pretty much... :)

Of course Virginia Tech now looks like they could lose every game to teams not named Ohio State so I don't know what that says about the ACC or the B1G.

I wouldn't exactly call Duke "lowly" right now. I think David Cutcliffe has that program moving in the right direction. I would take them over the majority of teams in the B1G.

I think you're definition of 'must get' is a bit off. I tend to think of a 'must-get' as a kid who you actually have a realistic shot at landing. Even with him taking an official visit to Columbus, I've never thought of him as a realistic commit.

The UF defense played hard, but let's be honest, Alabama's turnovers are what gave the illusion that Florida was in the game. Credit to UF's defense for that, but once Bama settled down on offense, UF couldn't stop them.

Comment 22 Sep 2014

Well, your point about him just "being in town" could actually bode well for OSU. Columbus is a lot closer to friends and family than Gainesville. Toss in a stable coaching situation in Columbus compared to UF and I think he owes it to himself to give OSU another look.

Thought it would be a later kick,  but happy to get in and out of college park with a win with plenty if time left in the day to do DC.

Hope you're planning on wearing protection...

Interesting thing I heard yesterday: I live in Tennessee, and yesterday morning I was listening to a college football talk radio show. A UM fan called in and was lamenting about how horrible Hoke is and that he needs to be fired and then he was asking the hosts, if they thought Butch Jones would listen if UM inquired about him. They said they thought Jones would definitely listen because he's a Michigan native (no ties to UM though) and several guys on his staff are as well. 

If Jones were to leave UT now I would probably not stop laughing until sometime in 2017 due to all the 'we're only one step away from dominating college football' and 'Butch is gonna get it done' talk I've heard the last 2 years.

Brady Hoke seems like a good guy and all, but he comes across as a coach who is in way over his head as a major college football coach. 

Comment 22 Sep 2014

Oh my. I would hate to be covering UM football and have to go to Hoke's pressers every week. Man, this is painful to listen to and watch...

Comment 22 Sep 2014

I'm just trying to build up my confidence in OSU for Saturday's game. And there you go and knock it all down... :)

Comment 22 Sep 2014

I thought the call was complete BS, too. Seemed like Hoke was just frustrated and vented at Mattison knowing his friend would give it back to him. You make a good point though, he should've vented at the refs for a stupid call. 

Comment 22 Sep 2014

Who's got money on them announcing Hoke will now be wearing a headset before, during, and after all games?

Seriously though: Hasn't Brandon given Hoke the dreaded vote of confidence repeatedly.

Comment 22 Sep 2014

Did anyone hear/see that UC only won by a touchdown at home over Miami of Ohio Saturday? Miami has lost 20 straight games and is one of the worst teams in college football and they gave UC all they could handle. 

Comment 22 Sep 2014

I can't find any info about it, but I would think it would be soon since student tickets have just gone on sale. 

Comment 22 Sep 2014

Ha. Hoke addressed this in his post-game presser with the media. As you can imagine, Hoke played the whole thing off and joked that they weren't arguing, they were having a "discussion".
