There's an old saying that's pretty popular: If ain't broke don't fix it.
St. Louis is in the heart of the Midwest. It most certainly is not the South.
2 QBs down should make us rethink our offense.
This is the same defense of the past 3 years; gives up the big play, misses tackles and is generally badly coached. We have loads of talent but playing in an inferior conference has allowed this team to have the success it has had the past 3 years. If we make the playoffs we will once again be exposed like we were against Clemson.
I'm not happy about it but I think we need to look at things realistically. Alabama and FSU have too good of athletes and are too well coached to conceal our defensive short-comings against.
Been the same story since Urban arrived: Bad defense. We have talent but they don't play as a unit. Watch Sparty play D and you'll see what we use to play under Tressel that translated to so much success. Until we get competent coaching on that side of the ball we won't be able to compete with the better teams in the republic.
Please run for office.
Love the fact that the most spied upon population in the history of the world has as it's motto "Land of the Free". Gets me every time.
Tressel: A good man will always be despised.
And yet the Bucks are no where to be found. Wisconsin is playing LSU, Sparty-Oregon. Where we at? Michigan played Alabama two seasons ago. We on the other hand play peanuts. We need to sac up. I want the SEC and nothing less. Let's go down to Knoxvile, let's invite the Bulldogs up here. I want Alabama!
No. I'm not done complaining. Neither Rutgers or Maryland are from the Midwest, they both suck and we have to play both of them every year. That sucks and so does Jim Delaney.
I agree with Bucksfan92. This conference is becoming unrecognizable. Why are we playing Rutgers and Maryland every year instead of Wisconsin or Iowa? A championship game in DC? What about Chicago or Detroit or Cleveland? So what if there are a lot of B1G fans all over the country. I bet you there's more in the Midwest. All the arguments people use for B1G expansion could just as well be used for Buckeye sucession. This money grab is destroying our traditions and cultures and The Big Ten still sucks. Where's my tricorne at?
Those almost look as ugly as the Bengals uni's
Brownies carry the flag
It's a tough call. Jerry Lucas probably comes out on top historically, but that was so long ago I can't relate. I'd personally say Jared Sullinger. He was only here for two years but I thought those were Mattas two best teams not including the Thad Five. Honorable mention: John Deibler & Evan Turner.
I always remembered having to pay $5 for the spring game and I don't think it should be a penny more. For me, one of the great things about the spring game was seeing people and families that you wouldn't see at regular season games. People from Columbus who love the Bucks but did not attend OSU, or any college for that matter. Yes it's a class issue. I loved seeing Buckeye fans who couldn't afford regular season tickets get the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of The Shoe and watch the pride of Ohio, even if it is just a scrimmage.
The B1G needs to change its recruiting rules and allow over-signing. It sucks but clearly it can't compete without playing by the same rules as everybody else. Or the NCAA needs to streamline the recruiting rules for all conferences
I fear change
Who cares about tradition, local rivalries and geographical culture? Also, who cares about competent football programs when we already have the TV market (e.g. Pitt & WVU)? Corporate investors have increased profit margins to worry about. They need those east coast $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
(Homer Simpson voice) NERD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We can replace Luke Fickell as D-coordinator but it won't matter as long Kerry Coombs is the D-backs coach. Dude can't coach.
The SEC is the best conference in college football and it's not even close. 7 consecutive national championships, 9 out of 16 BCS titles. It has the largest number of active players on NFL rosters and secures commitments from the best athletes coming out of high school year after year. All you have to do is watch the NFL draft or go right now to 24/7sports.com, rivals.com, scout.com or any other recruiting website. Anybody who thinks the SEC is not the best conference in college football is delusional. Let's switch the scenarios. Lets imagine it wasn't the SEC but the Big 10 that won 7 straight titles and 9 out of the 16 total BCS titles BY 5 DIFFERENT SCHOOLS. Would anybody here be even asking this question? I am a Columbus native who graduated from Ohio State and loves the buckeyes BUT I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!!
And how does this help us the fans? Great, Our conference is rolling in the dough. Meanwhile the product on the field is crap. In fact, it's such crap that an Ohio State team that manages to extract itself from this pile of feces unscathed won't even be given a chance to play for a title. At least Maryland and Rutgers are joining to make the editors at Forbes even more giddy. What a joke. Thanks Jim!
Great Job. I love the respect you show these kids and there personal decisions. Thanks!
Good. Can't trust those damn Mormons anyway.
Love the photo with Norv and Chud in the background. Those guys eat and drink football and are always scouting for the future. Go Brownies!
