So much Butt up there in AA.
I'm not defending any school when I say this, but scheduling can be a complete crapshoot. Sure, there are schools that I believe do their best to avoid tough games so they can rack up easy wins and puff their record. I've felt like OSU has done this before. And a lot of these games are scheduled so far in advance that a team could've been decent and then you finally get to the game and they ain't what they used to be.
It also doesn't help you if you're conference offers you little to no competition week in and week out. We've all seen and heard the B1G get hammered for being bad and OSU for winning a bad conference. Thankfully the B1G is better now than it's been in a while.
Yeah, I remember that. Bosa didn't want anymore 'distractions'.
The article does say Elliott was/is a partier and likes to 'have a good time'.
I don't like to read into things, but I think we all know what that probably means.
You're right. I love Tress, but man, that guy can filibuster with the best of 'em, and so forth.
They've made 3 bad hires in a row.
That's pretty much all you need to know.
'Coach' has a nice ring to it...
Is the Wisky- Sparty game one of the top match-ups ever to air on BTN?
A battle of two top 10 or 11 teams (Coaches vs. AP rankings); I doubt they've had many (if any) of those.
I highly doubt it. If you look at his twitter he lists himself as an OSU commit and tweets with other commits and retweets a lot of pro-Buckeye stuff.
Yep. Ash is awesome. I give him a ton of credit for the defensive success in 2014.
Rutgers, however, is not awesome. But I agree, hopefully he can bring them back to Schiano-level respectability.
Admittedly, I'm a fan of Lou Holtz fan and I really liked Rocket Ismail back in the day and I got kinda inspired by seeing Rudy, but I didn't think I would feel anything going there. But, a few years back a good friend was working on his PhD in South Bend and I visited him. He took me around and showed me campus and we went to a game and I have to admit, it was all pretty awesome.
But really, screw them. Screw Brian Kelly. Screw Rudy. Screw that little leprechaun guy on their sideline.
I understand the draw and appeal of a place like Notre Dame (especially if you're Catholic). It's a great school with a beautiful campus and its football program has a rich history.
But... you gotta play for Brian Kelly. No thanks.
Seriously, who is Ed Terwilliger?
...and is he related to OSU basketball legend Matt Terwilliger?
Yeah, I was like 'why is a 2018 recruit already taking official visits'?
Congrats to all these new Hall of Famers. I wonder how unusual it is for there to be no football recipient in a given year?
You mentioned Turner being perhaps the most iconic player of the Thad Matta era, and I think you're probably right, especially when you consider where he was when he came in and what he became during his POY junior season. Thinking back, the guys I would say that are probably the most memorable (in a positive way, unlike say, Amir Williams) in Matta's tenure are Greg Oden, Mike Conley, Evan Turner, John Diebler, Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft, and D'Angelo Russell.
But I have to admit I have a special place in my heart for guys like Matt Sylvester, Jamar Butler and David Lighty. And you could throw Titus in there, too.
I'm not really worried about Weber getting shoestring tackled right now. If it continues, then perhaps it'll be more of a concern.
From what I've observed, most backs have things to work through early on. I seem to remember Elliott having some issues early on with getting shoestring tackled, losing his footing, and etc, and we all know how that turned out.
Yeah, I liked it, even though for some reason Gronk still comes across to me as a major tool.
Just for the record, I still can't stand Elway.
A Browns fan from birth
I agree. JT's contributions to that season do seem to get lost in most of the Natty narratives.
Or...what if he had played the 3 games that Cardale started on the championship run?
Would OSU still have won those games with JT?
I know this is good news and all, but we really need to tread lightly on this subject.
Iowa seems to be in the 'let's keep a coach here as long as we can even if they're not doing anything all that special' mode.
If you compare their Iowa tenures, Ferentz is following Hayden Fry's Hawkeye career in eerily similar fashion.
Me thinks there are a lot of dimwits in Texas though...
They say everything's bigger in Texas, you know...
Possible, maybe. But I can't see him taking a preferred walk on spot with OSU and passing up Sparty (if they offer him).
I like it better than 'RG 3 weeks till season-ending injury'...
