An "unstoppable juggernaut" lost to a backup QB. Gee, that sounds familiar.
My personal top 4:
There needs to be a B1G change of turmoil.
They'll have to pull a Tonya Harding on Derrick Henry.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
If he's the head coach, then why would he leave a head coaching position to be an OC, albeit at a much more prestigious university? Would seem like the smarter decision to remain a head coach to build your track record up.
If the committee really looked into Oklahoma's "quality" wins, they would see that their 3 best wins: TCU, Baylor, and Oklahoma State, were all playing with their backup QBs. Oklahoma State's QB had been a rotational QB, but was used much more as a runner than a drop back passer. The Big 12 is a truly terrible conference with a bunch of Arena Football wannabe teams; however, I can honestly see Oklahoma as OSU last year, bad loss early, bounce back and practically dominate the rest of their schedule. I do think they'd lose in a head-to-head matchup with the Bucks (which we'll get to see in each of the next 2 years).
It obviously did mean something last year. Without the 59-0 win, OSU doesn't get in the playoff.
UNC played 2 FCS teams. They should automatically be eliminated.
Northwestern being at #13 is a pleasant surprise.
Firing a coach that went 9-3, worked out so well for Nebraska.
If Zeke got 40+ carries, he'd have 350+ yards. Plus he's played better defenses than Henry has.
Makes for better TV?
Really hoping FSU (can't believe I'm cheering for them and PSU in the same day) and Stanford to win. Would be amazing to see.
The B1G's not the only conference to have this. ACC's 2 best teams are Clemson and Florida State, and they're both in the same division. Bama and LSU are usually the 2 best SEC teams, and they're in the same division. Oregon and Stanford have been the 2 premiere teams in the PAC 12, and they're in the same division. It's probably just a guarantee that the two premiere teams in a conference play each other, rather than one team having a slip-up or two and not making it to the Conference Championship.
I don't remember him being a "hater". I remember him saying that OSU would run through the SEC with ease around August.
I heard a good point that it's not about who you lose to, but when you lose. This is a major flaw that needs to be fixed. Just because Alabama lost early in the season to an average Ole Miss team makes their loss better than OSU losing in late-November to a top 5 team? Makes no sense.
They probably booed him because they thought he was faking, scUM fans aren't the first to boo an injured player because they thought he was faking it, but usually it's teams that go uptempo that get upset by this, Michigan's offensive tempo moves slower than snails. So yeah, they're probably just assholes.
Special thanks to Braxton Miller, who knows what happens in 2012 without him.
If anyone truly said #FireUrban, then they don't deserve to wear Scarlet & Gray.
Maybe all the folks were right, it is nice to have Michigan be "better".
Not just Hoke, but even Rich Rod only lost by 11 in one game. Also, Harbaugh lost to Utah in Week 1, and a couple weeks ago, Arizona beat Utah, so therefore Rich Rod > Harbaugh. Can't argue with facts.
A good hire, but I thought Foster was a lock for the head coach in waiting. The Hokies will definitely be getting better, however.
I honestly believe if Bosa had gotten that pick-6, Meyer would've gone for 2, to equal the 1968 score.
I now declare my avatar as the best on 11W.
