OSU also has a very difficult schedule left. I don't like to assume anything.
D played great especially considering Conley wasn't out there. Let's not forget Oklahoma's got a pretty good offense too.
Makes sense then that he's a Bama fan
I still don't think Bosa should have gotten ejected. I always thought it had to be a direct hit to the head to be targeting.
Technically the play was still going on so why's it even a penalty. You should still be allowed to block. Was it clipping?
There's a bunch of reasons why I think CFB is better, but #1 is the importance of the regular season. There's actually a reason to tune into the big games on Saturday because they feel like they actually mean something. They're almost elimination games. In the NFL you could go 8-8 or 9-7, which is mediocre to me, and still make the playoffs. So what's the incentive to actually care about the regular season?
A few other reasons CFB is better are: better stadiums, better crowd atmosphere, more traditions, actual rivalries, hotter cheerleaders, better OT, crazier shit happening during the game (ala MSU-scUM last year, which would never happen in the NFL). That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's a few more.
This is why replay sucks. The play was clearly correct. No reason to waste time looking at it. I hope this is fixed next year.
If Houston goes undefeated, I think they're in regardless of what else happens. They'll have beaten Oklahoma & Louisville, won their conference, and gone undefeated; not to mention they beat FSU last year. If they don't get in in that situation, I'm not sure a non-power 5 team would ever get in.
How dumb can you be to give someone money for a gameday sign?
Still wouldn't be surprised to see Wisky blow it. It happened last year.
is that Dabo?
No reason to not use the TO there. Wasted 25 seconds.
maybe it needed some air
I get it. The coaches bring in a ton of money. But instead of the money going back to the coaches, why can it go back to the fans? Why do fans always have to foot the bill? If a school's doing really well, why not reduce ticket prices instead of increasing salaries?
This is one of the flaws with only giving playoff spots to conference champs. You don't encourage good OOC scheduling.
Assuming a 9 game conference schedule, I'd schedule one really tough team, one middle of the pack, and then one scrub. I think you have to have balance; meaning you need some marquee matchups, but you can't screw yourself by playing too many top teams. I'd also only do home and homes. I'm tired of the one-time neutral site games.
Agreed. We beat Wisky at their place too. So there's really no argument about who the best team was in the B1G in 2012.
I think he could. It was only a little over 5 years ago that he went 12-1. He's about the same age as Saban and Miles and so I don't think recruits would be dissuaded by his age. He had a really good track record and that matters more than anything really. It's not like he got ousted for covering up some Baylor or PSU level scandal. I think his reputation is still fine.
Bama was lucky to even be in the 2012 title game. OSU would have been there if not for the bowl ban.
It's annoying. Teams like Sparty always get the advantage of playing the underdog role. I'd rather be unranked then ranked #5.
Yeah, they might not actually be top 10 caliber, but their schedule is easy enough to get to 10 or 11 wins.
It's the last 100 years, so I'm guessing 1916.
A lot of the fans only bring it when it's a night game or against a Top 10 team. It's disappointing. If you want to have one of the best atmospheres in football, you have to be loud for every game, even against unranked teams. I don't understand it either.
Dirtiest school in collegiate athletics. It probably won't happen, but I hope they get hammered.
It wouldn't surprise me though either
