As someone who has moved 300 miles away from the nearest Skyline, this picture at lunch is cruel and unusual punishment
Backfire how? Giving young men the ability to find the best situation for themselves? Seems very scary
USC and UCLA are top 20 schools in the country, that's pretty elite. Texas is in the Top 50, which isn't a slouch.
I didn't come here to see grits slandered in this way
TL;DR "My entertainment is worth more than this man's life and career"
I'll put my vote in for the 1997 Rose Bowl.. but low-key, the 2004 Alamo Bowl was pretty great too. That team showed their potential in that game for what they could do in 2005
I would watch every minute of each of these games again, right now. I think that means its a pretty good list, as that can't be said for some iconic OSU games. (Looking at you Holy Buckeye)
OSU has rarely beat the spread this year.. its a fairly simple explanation
Buffalo/NIU will be a great game too, maybe better than the slog that will be going on in the suburban Bay Area parking lot Friday night.
UAB/MTSU and Louisiana/App State might be pretty entertaining too, if UAB can look better than they did last week
Michigan doesn't have the speed, or the offensive brain trust, that Maryland, Purdue, and Nebraska have.
Opposing offenses are only gaining 4 or more yards on the defense 32% of the time... there's your reward. The defense if very, very efficient
Ian Boyd has had a bit of an axe to grind against Ohio State so far this season, so it doesn't surprise me that his story left out that Ohio State also currently has the 7th most efficient defense with opposing offenses only having a 32% success rate against it. That covers up a lot of sins from the big plays.
Its amusing that lexco44 makes it look like defense was played in the 2006 Game
1) He doesn't have enough eligibility to do that
2) FCS schools are D1
3) That only works for JuCO transfers
Honestly, most arguments in favor of Haskins are from the impression of one throw that an experienced QB would have never made because the receiver was double covered
It should be noted that the 2004 Men's Hockey conference championship was in the CCHA, Ohio State has never won a B1G championship in men's hockey.
These are my favorite articles. Any school can become a dominant power if they focus all resources on one or two sports, to have an athletic department that gives a chance for hundreds of athletes to become champions is truly something to admire
