It's GOOD to be the king.
Since registering an account with 11W, my favorite college player has been Mike Doss. Seriously considering changing it to:
State of Ohio!
Car! Dale! Jones!
Oregon 56 is going, "Don't worry. I'll stop him!... OOF! I go backward. Where'd he go?...I fall down."
You're nuts!... Good call, though.
Thank you, Andydye84. I was scratching my head about that sentence, recalling that Ohio State was undefeated in 2012, and didn't play in the post season.
In addition to the gold pants for beating TTUN, these players should each get a pair of gold waders for stuffing the Ducks.
Oregon's cape looks Maleficient!
If Oregon, Ohio won't change the name of their city to Brutusville, Ohio to honor the state university football team on the day they play for a national championship, perhaps they should change the name to Oregon, Indiana, or Oregon, Michigan...
Agreed. What will make it a tough sell is the fact that Coach Tressel did not disclose what he knew about the players' infractions, and that non-disclosure compromised the eligibility decision regarding the 5 players. The game would have been very different without them. Who was our third string quarterback that year?
Just imagine how much better they'd play for B1G Coach of the Year, Jerry Kill...
Exactly! I was so excited by the INT, it didn't occur to me that something bad could happen while the ball was still in play. I was cheering for him to extend the lead...then I sobered up...
Oh no! ESecPN, and the Southeastern Conference fans have turned us all into conference homers! O-S-U! O-S-U! O-S-U! Go Bucks! O-H-
Great article about a great impact player. One question: Now that they've beaten the #1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, and will be playing in the National Championship Game, is it necessary to continue to refer to them as "the fourth-ranked Buckeyes"?
I saw that too. The announcers didn't make a big deal about it, but it would explain why he wasn't used for time management.
It was probably called for Spencer in an attempt to reward him for him for his other contributions last night. Brionte Dunn had some carries near the end of the B1G Championship as a reward for his special teams play. They called some plays to try to get Jalin Marshall a touchdown catch during a regular season game because of he'd been largely used as a decoy, and was landing solid blocks.
Watching sEcSPN SportsCenter, and their SEC guru was apologizing for the SEC ranked teams' 1- 3 start in bowl games. Guru then predicts Florida State will beat Oregon, and the Host starts gushing about how great the 'Bama/'Noles Championship game will be.... Is this 2002(3)?
Play hard. Play smart. Play clean (no unnecessary, reactionary penalties, please).
But on the very first play from scrimmage following the Spartans' go-ahead touchdown, Thomas ran a quick slant, caught the ball from quarterback J.T. Barrett, broke a tackle and went the distance — 79 yards to the house to tie the game at 21-all.
My recollection is that this touchdown followed the missed field goal by the Spartans. Technically, it was the Buckeyes "very first play from scrimmage", but it came after a fumbled kick-off return that immediately followed the Spartans' go-ahead touchdown. Michigan State recovered the fumbled kick-off return, had an apparent touchdown called back for a holding penalty, couldn't convert on third down, and then missed a field goal wide left. The 79-yard touchdown pass from Barrett to Thomas was "the very first play from scrimmage" following the missed field goal attempt.
Others, like Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio State, are eating MAC snacks.
I like to think of them as MACrifices...
The best thing about being 1-1...
How poetic: 1408 yards; 14 touchdowns. One touchdown for every 100 yards (the length of a football field).
Enter this game with the mindset that they're facing a formidable defense and that our defense is exploitable. It will sharpen their focus and avoid the superiority complex they may have had prior to The Game.
I saw that TBUN spelled "OH NO!" earlier this season. Is that the extent of their marching and formation proficiency?
It only LOOKS easy... just like Penn State looked challenging, until that end zone pick.
