Fitz is the Billy Beane of football.

 

So basically he is heralded for coming close but never actually winning anything? Billy Beane changed baseball for sure and Fitz has changed Northwestern but neither really did anything as far as getting to the summit of their sport. It's a pretty good comparison in my mind, I suppose for different reasons though.

It will be a miracle in my mind if more than 6 of these teams make a bowl game.

I've got: SDSU, Northwestern, Wisconsin, and Michigan. There might be a chance that one of Purdue, Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana make it but I don't see it. I believe Purdue will be the worst team in the conference this year and Iowa's schedule is brutal. If you look at Iowa's schedule, there are 6 wins at the most with 4 wins being more likely. I think Illinois will surprise some people this year and Indiana has a shot but they both probably need to sweep their OOC games and beat Purdue then the head-to-head game could knock one of them out.

Is that Mindy Drayer standing next to the alleged victim? How can she make any definitive conclusions otherwise? If only we had another illustration.

Maybe the better thing coming out of The Opening was that some lower-rated guys will get some boosts in their rankings. Certainly McLaurin will get a bump and you'd think Collier will too as he competed in the Elite 11. Great work by all of them who competed!

I think Ohio should claim the Great White Shark as their state fish because why not? It would be the most bad ass state fish of any state. Don't mess with us, our state fish is a Great White Shark.

Look when Saban and Bielema got their wish when we saw LSU vs Alabama for the title game when it was the lowest-rated title game of the BCS era. No one is stupid enough to take away this new-found excitement from a sport that keeps growing. Don't hinder those who are succeeding to drag along those who are not. This isn't 3rd grad field day, adapt or die.

I thought Gardner looked terrible against Ohio State. 11-20 for 171 with 1 TD and 1 INT and 75 of those yards and the touchdown came on a broken coverage play. He looked shaky and timid against the blitz and Michigan's OL didn't get any better having to replace all 3 interior lineman.

They could definitely improve college football with some more fake injuries too. I'm looking at you, Cal! Get with it Bielema, if you want to get rid of the spread- watch the masters.

I'll take any excuse I can get to roll out a few solid gifs. Things are certainly looking like I'll need to stay on my game.

I love what Tom Herman has brought to Ohio State and he definitely has potential to be the head man in Columbus one day. That being said, it's probably for the best if he goes and gets his feet wet somewhere as a head coach first before being thrown into the fire here. I like what Darrell Hazell is doing in that regard, you have to start somewhere. All the best to Herman and I hope he sticks around for a long time.

This kid seems well-spoken and intelligent. Oh and I guess his game film isn't that bad either. Good for the young man and good for the Buckeyes, I'd rather have a kid that is jumping at the chance to come to Columbus than one that has to be persuaded and convinced. Give him a year to redshirt and a few years behind a *hopefully* successful JT Barrett and hopefully he can make a name for himself. I'm already impressed with his character though and I'm sure his stars will come up as he gets more offers. Best of luck to you, Stephen!

I know when you're under 21 Four Lokos seem like a good idea but just stick to beer.

 

Get to the football games early, you won't remember the one more beer you had but the National Anthem and pregame routines are awesome, don't miss the Buckeye Bounce.

 

Get to a basketball game, it's not easy but it's worth it.

 

Don't spend your 4+ years waiting to get done with school, you'll spend your life wishing you could go back.

I don't think Northwestern has the balance on offense that will give Ohio State the same fits they had last year against the spread. Mark and Colter are a helluva duo but after those two there isn't that much high-level talent on the offensive side of the ball. They're not going to be able to stop them but they should be able to limit them by using their speed on the edges and forcing the play back inside.

Comment 10 Jun 2013

Hard to believe that a game which isn't the last one of the regular season would be considered the toughest game. I understand that Ohio State struggled with spread offenses last year and Northwestern has Colter and Mark but Ohio State should be able to score more points on Northwestern's defense than Northwestern can score on OSU's. Just my opinion but Ohio State should win any and every battle against a spread offense in B1G play if only because they can score more points.

It would be nice to see Miller find his groove in completing those 10-15 yard passes. I love what Brown brings to the table as he is as steady as they come as a receiver accumulating 8-15 yards per catch. If Heuerman and Vannett can find a home in this offense then I will worry less about Miller completing passes in that crucial range. He needs to improve his completion percentage to around 61-62% and these three players are the linchpin in accomplishing that. I suppose Devin Smith reeling in the routine catches wouldn't hurt either.
