That's a great hire for Nebraska. Diaco wasn't a good head coach, but he was an excellent defensive coordinator while at Notre Dame, and even while the head man at Uconn, his defenses were pretty good.
That depends. Are they playing with 1970 rules, or 2017 rules?
And the gold pants.
Better hope they don't play Stanford football.
Just another reason to play them again.
Florida State. I just wanna throw that annoying tomahawk chop right back in their face after a beat down.
I'd take Terrelle Pryor (him in Urban's offense... good lord) at QB. Zeke in the backfield. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, and Santonio Holmes at receiver (Braxton at H-Back, because why not?). Stoneburner at Tight End. Decker, Linsley, Elflien, Norwell, and Mewhort as my slobs.
Defense: Bosa, Michael Bennett, Heyward, and Spence on the D-Line. Shazier, Hawk, and Laurinaitis at Linebacker. Conley, Lattimore, Hooker, and Vonn Bell in the secondary.
Had it not been for Warinner's mastery in coaching up the Slobs, the championship run in 2014 ceases to exist; and for that alone, he has my gratitude.
Good luck, coach. Gophers are getting a great one.
We MUST run 90+ plays a game to allow our talent and depth to win out.
While I am an advocate for the up-tempo, there is no team in football that can run 90+ plays per game. Even the fastest tempo teams average around 75-80 plays per game.
Getting drafted by Cleveland would be an apt fate for him.
Vince Young never won a Heisman either.
Yes he is. But let's not forget Clemson's receivers, they made some spectacular catches on the final two drives.
First team to ever win a championship by scoring zero points! Woohoo!
I'm just here to collect my upvotes. And thank you. :)
What an asshole.
Well I did have a close look at the crystal ball.
You mean helmet stickers don't translate to cash?
I'll take a bowl of cereal.
I just re-watched the final play. My observation: they ran the pick route, but it wasn't executed as a pick. The Bama corner was holding the receiver, and the defender covering Renfro (the man who scored) slipped. If there was a foul, it was defensive holding.
Nice to see you again, BamaMike.
I'm more impressed that I called the score:
For some reason, I have a feeling this game will be like USC vs. Texas in 2005. Clemson scores in the final seconds to steal the game from the Tide, 35-31.
Don't believe me? Here's the link to the thread. My comment is about midway through.
