My Wife, being from New England and not a super big sports fan, got me an #27 OSU Jersey with my name it as a wedding gift. I wear it it when i'm watching big games at home...and if we went to a game and she asked if i was wearing it, or implied that i should, I would....because...wedding gift from her...so
Top Ten Teams Week 6 Schedule:
- Bama - Bye
- Clemson - Bye
- UGA at Tenn
- OSU vs. MSU
- LSU vs. Utah State
- Oklahoma at Kansas
- Auburn at Florida
- Wisconsin vs. Kent State
- ND vs. Bowling Green
- Florida vs. Auburn
At least 1 top ten team is losing (Auburn vs. Florida) but it looks like the rest of the top ten is safe.
Up The Villa.....Just hoping all of the moves and additions don't replicate Fulham last year and we can stay up...
I was thinking that Maryland and Syracuse were about even and i think will be a close game. Which, tells you something about the state of ACC football.
Right...but Georgia finished ahead of OSU last year...so if ttun beats ND, are we sure that the committee doesn't go with UGA in the playoff?
I get the point but....I don't remember the controversy at Utah or BG...
Also...which is it? He says "All you can be judged on is your record."
Again I get the point but if the record is all that you can be judged on...then...well...why does controversy matter...you can't judge based on it....
Let the Boom Train continue to roll!
Thought the same thing....I actually don't mind the uniforms that much....but the yellow background washes it out and is just too much...if this was a Black background it would pop and be more eye catching...
I've been on record as saying that insurance commercials as whole are fabulous.
I do really like the barber shop quartet one. It's pretty crazy that such a mundane industry has such memorable marketing. Although, that's also the point I suppose.
"You'd think fans of a team so successful would understand a little about the game."
- Considering 85% of the fan base didn't know the team existed or really followed football until about 20 years ago it upsets me that a run such as this is wasted on the new england fan base. It is insufferable to be around them and actually try to have normal conversation about the games
I know i'm not the only one and it's been said by several people before but, it's driven me away from the NFL game. Not PI specifically but the rules at large.
I know the college game has its issues (does it ever) but i just can't get excited about the NFL. Plus living in New England with sanctimonious New England fans probably has a bit to do with my lack of enthusiasm.
I don't think that's the question. The question is:
Can Tate transfer credits to a different school (UNLV for the sake of argument). Attend UNLV this semester and complete his credits to earn the degree. Then having graduated from UNLV grad transfer elsewhere in the fall and not sit the year.
i also don't know the rules about that, but maybe there's a loophole. I think that's what TXNut was getting at. I think everyone understands anyone can transfer at anytime and graduating is not required to do so.
Traditional Television Programming...Yes...Friday Primetime is a kiss of death. However a CFB National Championship is not a traditional TV program on a traditional network.
My Personal preference would be Saturday as it is the traditional College Football Day. But I get that the NFL has it's playoffs and that is king, so Friday Night for a 1 off Championship game would surely outdraw a Monday night....no?
Thanks Chicago. I clearly did something wrong when pasting the link.
To be fair Tate didn't actually say "I don't care to know him".
He was asked "Do you even know Fields" to which Tate shook his had and said "No, i don't know him" Was asked again "You don't even know him?" and Tate shook his head then was asked "do you care to know him" and he said “I don’t care.”
It's small and may be semantics, but there ya go.
Whatever decision Day makes, I think it's one where he has to make it confidently and not second guess.
I have a feeling he already has an idea of what he wants to do but just needs time (more than 2 days) before making such broad changes. Maybe hoping to wait until after Signing Day since both Schiano and Grinch are presumably out recruiting?
This was always my logic too...
I would tell the same thing to my parents about Duke basketball. Wouldn't go, but would leverage everything I could out of them to go somewhere else. Because if a program like that is recruiting you then you have at least a couple other decent options.
hmmm....Yes.....This pleases me. Feels like this will finalize the Arena District with a nice bow. Also love that the current site will be updated and keep some significance.
He is from New Hampshire and played QB at UNH.....and given that New England is decidedly not an big College Sports area....it may be 50/50.....maybe his family is from OH or have been fans?
I mean i maybe understand the Jonathan Taylor getting some love because he is a 2k yard back and that doesn't grow on trees but some of the others are head scratchers to me as far as 1st place votes. I mean. Devin Bush is the leader of the number 1 defense....so ...ok?... I'm just trying to understand the logic of McSorely and Rondale Moore and Gary....oh well...
There are a lot of sanctimonious folks out today...I'm more annoyed by that than anything else
I know it's been harped to death but if there is a gap over the center or interior line I still don't get why a QB sneak isn't used.
Line up in shotgun per usual. If the QB sees the opportunity, go up to line like he's making adjustments pointing and hollering etc. then slide the hands under center and go.
If its not there then fine, still go up to the line and point and holler, just go back to shotgun and proceed as intended.
Granted, I'm not a coach and there is probably nuance that i'm ignorant towards, it just feels like an easy way to get a yard if the defense is aligned a certain way.
I saw the poster earlier and thought, "Nice game poster! I love it!" then heard all this chatter later in the day about an offensive game poster OSU put out and thought there must have been another one.....
Now, I'm no genius but I'm far from the dullest tool in the shed and I legitimately didn't connect the dots for 10 minutes and needed someone to explain that the "silence" --> "domestic abuse" was the connection or "problem" with it.
I'm so confused now... about everything...
