It's unfortunate that the recaps of these rough 90s seasons are aligned so well with the dog days of fall camp...  Still almost three weeks until the first game and still a few more tough ones to get through.  The good news is that the start of the season will be in sight when we're reading some of the more enjoyable seasons to remember (excluding 2011, of course).

I'm really glad that they added overtime to college football -- ties are dumb.  Even though I'm not a huge Cooper fan, going for it on 4th and 4 around midfield with a minute left in the game is a tough call.  Most current coaches would play for overtime and avoid the questions Cooper got about punting in that situation.

The only true road game I've been to is Northwestern in 2013 when Hyde went off and saved us in a game that was way more stressful than it should have been.  Ryan Field is not the most impressive stadium I've ever seen, but it was still a great experience.  I'm going to Maryland in November, and I'm going to start making my way through the Big Ten in the next few years (and hopefully Oregon in 2020).

Too bad the complicated play-calling structure couldn't have stuck with what they did for that one drive in the MSU game...

1st and 10 at MSU 32

(1:49 - 1st) Ezekiel Elliott run for 3 yds to the MchSt 29

2nd and 7 at MSU 29

(1:15 - 1st) Ezekiel Elliott run for 4 yds to the MchSt 25

3rd and 3 at MSU 25

(0:45 - 1st) Ezekiel Elliott run for 7 yds to the MchSt 18 for a 1ST down

1st and 10 at MSU 18

(0:12 - 1st) Ezekiel Elliott run for 5 yds to the MchSt 13

END OF 1ST QUARTER

2nd and 5 at MSU 13

(15:00 - 2nd) Ezekiel Elliott run for 4 yds to the MchSt 9

3rd and 1 at MSU 9

(14:35 - 2nd) Ezekiel Elliott run for 3 yds to the MchSt 6 for a 1ST down

1st and Goal at MSU 6

(13:48 - 2nd) J.T. Barrett run for 2 yds to the MchSt 1

3rd and Goal at MSU 1

4th and Goal at MSU 1

(12:45 - 2nd) Ezekiel Elliott run for 1 yd for a TD, (Sean Nuernberger KICK)

Anyway, I agree they have a much better system in place for 2016, so I'm going to try to move on and enjoy that.

You're missing the point.  Unless the Browns and Bengals play against each other in the playoffs, it doesn't matter what the Browns do.  They will still have won a playoff game more recently than the Bengals until the Bengals win one.

I was accepted into Ohio State and Notre Dame, and although I never had any doubt in my decision, choosing Ohio State was best decision of my life.  I studied engineering and had a great job lined up months before I graduated (also, Ohio State's engineering program is rated 20 spots or so higher than Notre Dame's, for those who care about that sort of thing).  I'm not surprised that you used the word "historically" in your comment since that's what Notre Dame fans do, but falling back on the old academics argument doesn't really work anymore.

Comment 12 Dec 2015

I thought the same thing -- when I think about the best players this year, I think of Elliott (obviously biased), Fournette, and Cook (hurt by injuries but stats like yards per carry make him look amazing).  McCaffrey is like a volume shooter in the NBA who scores a lot of points but isn't even really close to being the best player in the league.

Keenan Reynolds has had an amazing career, but the Heisman isn't a career achievement award.  I would've been fine with him being at the ceremony, but he had a game in Philadelphia today, so I'm doubting he'd want to go straight to New York after the game.

Comment 10 Dec 2015

Stanford football is a cut above other programs.  That's why if Stanford loses two games, it's better than losing to one team that is superior to either of the teams to whom Stanford lost.  I also heard that Christian McCaffrey had a large number of all-purpose yards this season, so it must be an oversight that he was only listed once.

Comment 26 Nov 2015

I know the West Coast offense can be successful, but having watched the Colt McCoy-Pat Shurmur Browns, it can also turn into endless checkdowns, which quickly becomes ineffective and painful to watch.  Hopefully our defensive line can get some quick pressure on Rudock and reduce Michigan to something similar to this.
