With Tech's history, they're going to need all the defense they can get. Hope he does well.
He was probably trying to catch one of Geno Smith's passes.
Even in passing, Piper still takes the spotlight from Hulk Hogan.
It was against Texas Tech, not WVU.
A little bit of mystery never hurt anyone, but it will hurt the Hokies.
The only one I'm really worried about replacing is Bosa. Offensively there are weapons galore, but it's nearly impossible to replace a player like Bosa. I think they'll be fine, but it still stings quite a bit.
Let's pump the brakes on Arkansas for the time being. I know they're supposed to have a good team this year, but they haven't exactly been great since Petrino left. Also, there's no way they're wining the west this season, they would basically have to beat Bama and LSU on the road and Auburn at home (the latter is the most possible of the three). Sorry, but Burt's team just isn't going to do that this season.
Baylor ranked 4th, Michigan State ranked 6th. Remind me, who won that game again?
2011 season: 7 losses
2012-2015: 3 losses
Yep, we're definitely sitting pretty right now.
Smart man, he wants to go play for the SEC East champions, can't say I blame him.
Ted Ginn still to this day is my all-time favorite Buckeye football player. I couldn't believe how fast he was when I first saw him, my jaw may have actually hit the floor. Would love to see him take a jet sweep from Barrett or Jones, being led by the slobs, while getting a leading block from EZE.
Hey, that's my line buddy!
You dare dis the legend that is Brian Hoyer?
Perhaps he saw a 5 instead of a 15, because this is the best RB they've faced.
This prediction will die out quicker than this:
While you make a good point of how TCU was kept ahead of Baylor for so long, the BCS system was also had big flaws. In week 10 of the '09 season where the computers had Iowa as #1. IOWA!!! And this was when teams like Florida (the Tebow/Meyer Gators), Bama (who would win the natty that year) and Texas (with Colt McCoy) were also unbeaten. This system has actual people watching for themselves, rather than having a machine spit out results, and while they did screw up on having TCU ahead of Baylor, in the end they had Baylor at #5 and TCU at #6 (even though in the end it didn't matter because they both missed out), and the committee did indeed get the playoff right.
Oh yeah, oops. Good catch.
Ohio State beat the #2, #3, #5, and #14 ranked teams in the final rankings. TCU beat one ranked team, #21 Kansas State. Sorry Paul Johnson, your argument is invalid.
It's been more than just Bama, the entire SEC has struggled in the Superdome in recent years. The last time they won a Sugar Bowl was when Meyer's Gaotrs manhandled the previous unbeaten Bearcats in 2010 in Tebow's final game.
2005-06: West Virginia 38 Georgia 35
2008-09: Utah 31 Bama 17
2010-11: Ohio State 31 Arkansas 26
2012-13: Louisville 33 Florida 23
2013-14: Oklahoma 45 Bama 31
2014-15: Ohio State 42 Bama 35
Michigan, I always look forward to kicking their asses.
D'Antonio, outside of the B1G, he doesn't get nearly the amount of respect he deserves.
EDIT: Also, Frank Beamer, I know V-Tech hasn't been too good in recent years, but V-Tech was a dumpster fire before he arrived, and they've been to a bowl game for 21 consecutive years now.
Oregon found that out the hard way.
I'm guessing this is going to be like the Minnesota Vikings' boat party scandal from ten years ago.
