That was definitely my favorite quote from the presser. I can't wait to see who he picks.
Pat Forde sucks. Honestly, give me Mark May anytime. At least he's entertaining when he's being a tool. Pat Forde is neither funny nor entertaining nor someone you would want to go out with after work for a drink
I would have zero qualms about that scenario.
The OOC usually does suck minus about 2 or 3 primetime games...so here's my thing. I think Thad Matta's 20-win statistic is overrated because half of those wins come against nobodys. What I won't argue with is Thad's level of success in-conference and post season play. There's a down year every once in a while but year in and year out the Buckeyes are ready for conference play no matter how awful the OOC schedule was. More impressive to me is when we talk about Thad having multiple 30-win seasons. These games are very important for Kam, D'Angelo, Jaesean and Keita to gain confidence and to see "hey, even though we are playing against the nobodies of the NCAA these guys are still a level above what we saw in high school and we need to step it up" Hey guys there's a ton of random thoughts jumbled into a messy paragraph. I don't have a huge problem with the schedule.
I wish OSU would schedule Dayton. Revenge is necessary.
One of my favorite players of all time but he's certainly not doing himself any favors in the NBA...
I don't think anyone here can say they are satisfied being number 2...
But beating Alabama in New Orleans with Cardale Jones at QB would be one of the best wins of my 26.5 years on this planet...it would definitely make losing to Oregon or FSU a lot easier to take. This team has already overachieved so much
I need to take an English class because when I saw the word underscored I was like oh man I wasn't saying Herman was a "dime a dozen coordinator"...absolutely agree with you, Herman could take just about anyone who can throw a football over 30 yards and turn them into an excellent player.
If you look at twitter, I saw Ben Axelrod tweet it, his wife made it seem like he is going to coach in the bowl games and also the people saying Tressel should be OC for the sugar bowl need to remember their sarcasm fonts please.
Go Cougars! Obviously those hanging onto their thread of hope will hope this doesn't come to pass but in any case he deserves this job. Maybe he will hire Kenny Guiton as his QB coach considering, if I'm not mistaken, Houston is the hometown of the ole right hander.
First of all, if true congrats to Tom Herman. Looking through Twitter, it appears that it is truth. Urban will replace Tom with someone great. He won a national title with Chris Leak, so it's not as if Tom Herman is the only coordinator out there who can make any QB look good (although he is absolutely one of the best). I'm definitely going to be rooting for the Cougars until Tom moves on.
I thought the answer was yes back in like 2008...but now I'm not sure. Can the Big Ten have an elite team or two that makes noise nationally? Absolutely...but I just can't see Purdue, Indiana, Illinois, Northwestern, Rutgers, Maryland, basically half the league ever quote unquote reaching that glory.
I would love to be wrong, but the more years you tell yourself "hey this stuff is cyclical" the more it starts to not mean anything anymore.
Diamond Quest sounds like a game you invited me to play on Facebook and now I'm going to unfriend you...
If any of you have a spare $150 lying around, let me know and I'll give you my shipping address
Thanks for the heads up!
I absolutely hope this guy gets hired by Oregon State and does well. That would be absolutely hilarious. The Schadenfreude would be legendary.
Baylor vs MSU for sure. Hopefully that shows the "haturzz" that the committee picked the right teams for the Top 4
Best weekend I can remember. 59-0 beatdown of Wisconsin, Michigan lost to NJIT in basketball, and we are in. YES!!! ROLL BUCKEYES
I threw my dog a treat just a second ago. Somehow, Devin Smith came up with the catch. Incredible.
This team and this coaching staff are incredible.
Nice! I'll be venturing down from Indianapolis...what's a good place to park at
Anyone else going to the game?
