OK, but 33 games at 5 passes a game. I don't recall either of them being 0-150. Or them playing both sides of the ball to get worn down.
It's just a feeling but I've been thinking we would only have a conference regular season(not speculating on playoffs). It sucks but better than nothing.
Yes, i should be considered but the entire career makes up for most of that.
Good article. I like the recognition of those players. I had three players come to mind when reading it. Chris Gamble for playing both sides of the ball at a high level. I couldn't believe he could play so many plays a game. 'Big daddy' Dan Wilkerson dominated offensive lines in 1993 and lived in highly ranked Washington backfield in the upset that year. For the distant past I have Hop Cassidy for his play at DB even though we all know his greatness on offense earned him the Heisman. It's one thing to play one year (starting every game there)without giving up one completion against him but he went his whole OSU doing it.
That's not entirely true. The bids were sponsor driven and their data showed more was not better so their was a significant drop per round average in their bids. All parties didn't want to risk empty seats and it was determined that there were only a handful of teams that had fans to fill 3 times so with three or more games fans would pick and choose which games to attend. That's why the Rose bowl for the playoffs dropped from 85 mil to 45 mil for more rounds. Plus things are bid solid until 2025 and the overall cost to the many many contracts would be many many millions and would have to be rebid which took over two years on this one. They can't just up and say let's do this or that. To your point 6-8 and 16 were in the bids also but 4 team was the best money per Bill Hancock so unless they want to accept less money and spend millions to achieve it then it won't happen.
Can't disagree. Now just find someone to bid it higher than the 4 team (which was the best bid) or convince the NCAA to accept less money since the bid lowered significantly for automatic bids and home playoff games. That's the real problem that drives the 4 team playoff. ESPN payed for chaos and control.
That would be the next argument if it were expanded. No matter how it ends up there will be crying. With the success of the 4 team, I wouldn't be surprised if it stayed that way. After all 6-8 and 16 were also bid in this one and the bid for 4 team was the best by far. Someone would have to bid it or the NCAA would have to agree to accept less money and compromise on things they are dead set against.
Yea, with over 500 yards of offense it's hard to get too excited about 29 tackles downfield.
Steve (duce) thinks he knows more than he does.
Exactly, on the other hand a commitment isn't a commitment either, just the favorite right now.
I was 6'0 172Lbs my senior year (1973)and was considered a big RB in the OCC. It's hard to believe looking at that kid that could have been big.
Mr. Parsons (my shop teacher who coached the reserve basketball team). I got caught skipping 13 days (by the middle of October)and was given 65 detentions. I was on the wrong path and hanging with a bad crowd. Mr. Parsons was one of the detention teachers and told me if could make the freshman basketball team he would get rid of the detentions. I made the team and went on a better path from there.
Agree. I've said this all along. He was basically being framed as helping a child molester. How could that not affect someone personally and profoundly. There were people on the street with signs picketing saying he was a child molester because of an asshole radio person. I think he was side tracked at best. I also feel when things started going bad on defense it added to his mind set. On top of that, he wasn't the only defensive coach.
There is a picture out there that was taken as the buckeye offensive line in a game lined up standing at the ball and Mangold looked like a man among boys.
Does that go for your wife or girlfriend also?/s
Thanks for the correction. I didn't read the question thoroughly.
Not going to happen.
First of all it's not up to the NCAA to change the playoff. They are in a tight contract for 4 teams. Second I would imagine the contract for the regular season would have to be considered also. About the only thing they can do without a lot of red tape is cancel.
Nobody had more experience and did it better than Krenzel but I'm going with Braxton Miller with Beanie at RB. I want Dudley at TE, Micheal Thomas and Ted Ginn on opposite sides with Santonio Holmes in the slot.
Actually the defense wasn't all that great in pass defense. They just rose to the occasion every time it was needed much like the offense. The offense was tailback oriented and when Clarett got injured it bogged down. Krenzel did one of the greatest QB seasons that year with one arm tied behind his back with Bollman calling the plays. Time and time again (along with defensive heroics) he either ran from the pocket or made the throws under enormous pressure all year to stay undefeated and the NC.He was the leading rusher in the NC game and completed passes with Miami players in his face all game long. It wasn't a butt load of yards but the important ones in tough situations. The pass (that was miss called incomplete) was perfectly thrown and would have ended that game in regular time. Many fans get caught up in stats instead of the situation some face and the fact they didn't throw the ball like they do now. Rex Kern (3rd and 5th Heisman) and Hop Cassidy (whose performance won the Heisman) was two of our greatest QBs but would be no where near that list
Minnesota is on a good path. They have a good coach and is legit again.
Pardon me if I count you as one of the delusional ones. Not one thing I said wasn't true. Each year you come up of some of the most off the wall logic and predictions that never work out for you. Each year you point out what they lose and convince yourself they have very little coming forward only to be proven wrong time and time again. If you like I would be happy to list your flawed logic for the past 3 years to make my point. Before you fly off the handle again and start name calling again this year no one is saying they like PSU and no one one here doesn't think we will win but to think they aren't a threat is naive. Nothing wrong with thinking Oregon is better (because this is point is just opinion like your last two lines) but I FEEL PSU would beat them handily on a neutral field.
Anyone who says PSU isn't a significant threat is living into a fantasy world. We have had huge talent and coaching advantage yet they push us to the brink in recent years. It's a head-scratcher for sure. I'm more concerned about that game then even Oregon.
