It's not official til we see the dancing banana!
I've always heard that many/most of the NFL guys leave on Friday.
This is the truth. I was at the game. Missouri had been playing well and the crowd was really fired up. But all the Mizzou mojo in the stadium disappeared with Kat's hit. David Boston was a huge mismatch for us in that game, too.
We got Schiano and Oregon hired Hoke.
Cousineau had as much natural talent for playing LB as anyone I've ever seen. What a player.
I saw him wrestle Bob Golic at the district championships in Mentor when they were seniors; everybody there knew they were witnessing greatness.
Any win in Evanston, by any margin, is a good win.
I remember one of the best Evan Turner-led teams losing there. And one of the Jared Sullinger teams required a bucket by Sully in the closing seconds to win.
The sombrero is perfect.
Hah...Bob Griese...typically unintelligible during the second half of telecasts
Woody would be pleased with Frank's work!
Indeed! I would give this multiple upvotes if I could.
Bad move on Campbell's part, IMO. ISU plays second fiddle in a state that doesn't produce much D1 talent.
He's very old school when it comes to dealing with the media...kind of a bully...not a good thing...he seems to want to be Glenn Schembechler.
I read that Rose Bowl has "sole discretion" in choosing B1G team, if league champ is in the playoff. Gotta believe the Rose Bowl committee is wetting themselves at the possibility of getting the Buckeyes this year...ESPN/ABC would want it, too.
That's so beautiful.
During today's game I texted a friend, "I'm having flashbacks to Chuck Stobart and Mike Jacobs offenses."
Chuck Stobart was the offensive coordinator in 1999.
Woody Hayes: "Nothing cleanses the soul like getting the hell kicked out of you."
Our souls are spotless now.
Woody was one of the first college coaches to put names on the back of jerseys. The names debuted with the 1968 uniforms, which were a radical change from the previous uniforms. He even put leaves on the helmet (what the heck?). He put the names on the back because he thought it would help recruiting -- make the parents happy to see the name on the jersey. You can above that we have names on back and Sparty doesn't. I would guess that photo is from 1970.
I bet the traditionalists were hopping mad about the names on the back.
Anyone who's an Eagles fan would enjoy Don Felder's book. He's still mad a Henley and Frey, but that's just a very small portion of the book. The chapters about growing up in the Gainesville, Florida music scene are really cool -- for example, when Felder was in high school he taught guitar lessons and one of his students was Tom Petty! The chapter about the origins of the song "Hotel California" is great rock-and-roll history.
Also, Felder was at Woodstock, as a fan.
Bravo for including his "Live From Daryl's House" performance. Really cool. I didn't know Hall was such a rocker til I found "Daryl's House."
Both of the Gophers' starting DTs are out for this game, according to beat writer for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Safe to say M*chigan has been exposed in their last two games. Total yards tonight: Minny 461, UM 296.
The kid who knocked Rudock out of the game is from the town in Minnesota where I live. Nice (and clean) hit Andrew Stelter!
Great interview...I need to buy the book!
It was Baker.
