Going into the game last year:
Harbaugh's pregame comments "We're in playoff mode."
"Revenge Tour - looking for a little redemption."
Favored by 6.
UFM's parting gift to the OSU fanbase - 62-39.
It has destroyed them.
Going into the game last year:
Mentioned that in a thread last week. Plenty to be happy about but BV has looked very good!
That was my all-time favorite MGoBlog post!
It's like the coaches are handing out croquet mallets to fight teams with Apache helicopters.
Had to go over to MGoBlog - here is one of the all-time best: (This from the MgoBlog coaching evaluation - several posts asked - "There was coaching going on today?"
"It's like the coaches are handing out croquet mallets to fight teams with Apache helicopters."
Isn't Grinch the guy who slow-played the potential DB recruit who ended up at OK?
I'm expecting scum to rise a few spots in the polls this week - the new offense looked great! Not a single turnover and the D pitched a shutout.
I agree with you Ballot. However, I think the number of defensive people out for LSU last night due to heat was a factor. Burrow looked awesome.
My sentiments exactly. I hope for them to enter the game at 0-11, having yet too score a point and we promptly drop 100 on them by mid 3rd quarter and then kneel for the rest of our possessions just to rub it in.
Little talk about Benjamin Victor who I thought was outstanding today!
Benjamin Victor looked very good today!
..and it didn't feel like Cincy was bad - just the Bucks were pretty good.
Bowen is one of the reasons that I think the OLine this year will be an improvement over what we've had the past couple of years.
Going with Nebraska - finishing at least 9-3.
I believe the OLine will be significantly better than last year.
Not too concerned. Day promised Hoak a legit shot and that is what he is giving him. To name a QB before next week says Hoak did not really get a legit shot.
Now that is funny!
Agree! Teague is going to have a monster year. By the end, I predict he is splitting carries with Dobbins, much like with Weber.
Not just that, but the inability of Day to call proper run plays. Only an idiot runs the read option without having a mobile QB and without actually running it.
Seem to recall the same issue in 2015 - long before Day arrived. Not sure that was a "Day" problem.
Hope we get Robinson based on what I've read. But remember Walker and Green? Seems like we passed/(lost out) on them but ended up with a less heralded guy named Zeke. Teague is going to be good.
Good article. Green and Haskins both seem to be class individuals.
Okudah will have a very good year. I've rewatched many of OSU's games multiple times and can't tell you how many times Sheffield's elite speed meant nothing as he took a bad angle or just had guys with worse 40 times pull away from him. There must be something to "football speed." I really thought Sheffield would have a breakout year after seeing him perform in the Cotton Bowl vs USC, but not so much. Okudah is the real deal - and fast enough.
The way the playoff committee views strength of schedule, IMO, we should cancel all of the above mentioned out-of-conference games and schedule Wofford, Youngstown State, Mercer, Samford, Citadel, Western Carolina, Marist, Murray State, etc. I would also spread them out throughout the year so they did not all occur at the start of the season effectively giving us 4 more bye weeks. Guess then they would call our OCC a "chicken shit" OOC.
