  • SPORTS MOMENT: My favorite sports moment was when I saw Cie Grant come in and disrupt Ken Dorsey en route to a huge and "upset" of the Miami Hurricanes tied with the rollercoaster of emotions felt when I thought the game had been lost and then the pass interference call. "Holy Buckeye" also makes the list.

One game does not define a coach. Urban is undefeated against TTUN and has a national championship under his belt in 5 years. It isn't possible to go undefeated every year and his teams have gotten unlucky the last two years of losing to the wrong team at the wrong time in the Big 10. I have a feeling we are going to se something special this year.

Allow the downvotes to come if they must but I really believe Thad deserves another year. He built this program to what it is and lofty expectations of this program are a direct result of what he created. I am in complete agreement that there needs to be some shakeup with the staff but Thad should be able to have a chance to salvage this. This team dealt with a good amount of adversity and I think the KBD injury has been significantly downplayed. If we had his 10 or so points a game and his defense I think the outcome this season would have been drastically different not to mention the unfortunate health issues that struck team family members this season which no other team to my knowledge had to deal with.

The lineup change later in the year seemed to energize the team and both CJ and Wesson showed significant improvement as the year went on.

I understand the point you make but not sure about your examples. Samuel was hurt for a decent amount in 2015 and playing behind the best running back in the NFL right now. Powell was a two year starter before his last junior season and had a good season by all accounts in 2014. UFM did play a good amount of talented freshman this season and I hope to see the trend continue. It's gonna be hard to keep this talented 2017 class off the field. I'm specifically hoping Grimes can recover from his injury quickly and get some quality playing time on the outside. Dudes gonna be a stud.

Mclaurin came up with a HUGE and very difficult TD catch for us early. He got smoked by a Nebraska defender after he beat his man badly when things started to break down for JT in the pocket. Great catch in traffic and good ability to hold on to the ball.
