It's definitely nowhere close to what is was originally but still worth a half hour every now and then
I was thinking pre-2000's when I saw this. My thought is that O'line (specifically O Pace comes to mind), RB's (B Sanders, OJ) or WR's (Randy Moss) would translate to todays game. However, I struggle with defense just because of the handcuffs that the players have to play with today. Katzenmoyer would get called for targeting every game because, lets face it, everyone was defenseless against him!
I don't that is what he is saying at all. It means that it is his job to turn these kids that have had sunshine blown up their backsides for two years by every program in the country into world class athletes and that isn't done by sweet talking them
What ever happened to Max Wray?
WOW!!! Terrible news. They don't make'em like that any more. My world is a lesser place today. RIP Neil Peart
I have no argument that the suit is within legal bounds. Just curious that it happens today, the day he transfers. Any legal situation these days seem to result in a favorable result with the NCAA granting a waiver to a player. Seems like any time a lawyer shows up the NCAA folds
This happened back in 2017 and the suit is just now being filed!?!? Hmmm. I have to agree with the UGA folks that are claiming that the entire suit is to ensure he is awarded a waiver for immediate eligibility since he will the defendant in a case against the university
2016 was embarrassing on the field and exposed how stale and predictable our offense was. In turn, lit a fire under the program and was when we started to modernize the offense.
2019 - A far superior team to 2016. Some miscues and bad breaks but nothing I'm embarrassed about on the field. On the other hand our vocal internet fan base's reaction to the game and calls about bias and conspiracy is an utter embarrassment.
This!!!! Times 1000. We had the lead with what 4 minutes and they had 94 yards to go. They scored on 4 plays. I also believe that JF's knee had something to do with our lack of success in the red zone.
This thread is interesting to me bc of the heart felt reactions following the game....our short comings, Clemson's successes and some discussion about the refs. Here we are 3 days later and it seems that a vast majority of our fan base (if you believe what you see on the internet) believes that there is a conspiracy that ESPN is rigging all of college football to make sure that only ACC and SEC are successful.
a walk-on WR, to coach some of the top quarterback recruits in the country? Just WOW WOW WOW BAD BAD AS BAD A HIRE AS THERE EVER WAS WOW BAD
LOL....Wasn't Dabo a walk-on WR? Nick Saban was a nobody player for Kent State. Bill Belichick was a nobody at a non football school.
There may be an argument for your stance but that ain't it
I'm not huge on Dabo but I have to give credit where credit is due. They have put together a hell of a program.
That being said, in my attempts to learn a little more about them and perhaps get a feel for where they felt they had advantages I was dumb enough to go check out their Tigernet fan board last week. Not sure that I need to expound much further on this but I saw a completely different side to their fan base there. I know it isn't fair to judge a fan base on the comments of people on the internet but WOW.
So...Joe B plus the ridiculous Clemson fans has me pulling for LSU this game
I would expect clemson To get rid of the ball quickly which psu, wisc and mich had some success with
This has been my thought for the past three games and I haven't heard any of the analyst mentioning it. I expect to see a lot of the same from Clemson.
I would put 31-0 on everything that the players could see for the past month
If parity is goal then NIL isn't the way to achieve it.
I'm a believer in the 4 team play off from the POV of crowning the best team (expanding playoff's only further clouds the waters with lesser deserving teams). However, with only 4 teams in the playoffs you further concentrate the powerful teams. Meaning, most fan bases are pulling for the playoffs and going last year doesn't satisfy not going this year. If we don't make the playoffs, really how excited are you to play in a New Years 6? Or an Outback bowl? So, to keep more fanbases energized and perhaps even expand the field of truly relevant teams then you have to expand the playoffs.
The other part that makes sure that parity will never occur is the recruiting system that we currently have. The system that we have in place right now is like taking all the teams that make the playoffs in the the NFL and only allowing those teams to take all the picks in the first 2 rounds following draft. Pretty sure that I would never support a measure that restricted where a kid could choose to go but if you really want parity then this is a big glaring area IMO.
I feel like 1985 is a solid line and those born before are super pissed about this and those born after understand reality.
Really? That is about as dumb of a comment as I have seen on this board. Generalize much??
Wow!! Doesn't seem like that was 15 years ago!
How dare you bring your level headed and fair analysis to the internet where all opinions are absolute and if you aren't on my team you must be destroyed!!!
After reading some stuff here yesterday I also checked out that site. Yes it is their echo chamber where they can beat their chest and declare whatever ridiculousness they want. Yes there was some way out of line comments about people from Ohio and complete ignorance of 2019 Ohio State football and the B1G as a whole. However, it really isn't too unlike some of the stuff we spout off around here as well. A part of the beauty of college football is our disdain for each other, each others teams and the rejects that come from our opponent's unholy states. So, what the hell do you expect to hear on a board from a team that has made the CFP (without controversy) for 5 straight seasons, won it all 2 of the past 3 years and has never lost to us in history?
Let's beat the hell out of them on the field and then move on to the championship! Until then, save yourself a few years of your life and don't get bent out of shape bc some people that live in their parents basement have a keyboard and don't like Ohio State
I hope this is correct. I couldn't care less if Urban coaches again, but I don't want to lose these guys!
I don't think we have any interest at all given the train of WR talent we have lined up. It is still newsworthy any time you see a 5* kid leaving one of our main competitor's teams
I feel like I'll never live that down :)
I agree with this for most part. I wouldn't solely blame the stargiverouters though. Our coaching staff clearly saw something in him. In my opinion, Tate would have been perfect for Urban to continue to run the same JTB style of offense that has fallen behind the times.
Tate is/was an entitled brat for sure. He made a fool of himself during the Fields transition and I more than assume he wishes he could get a mulligan on how he handled all that. I hate seeing people trash the kid though, he was all buckeye during his time here. His style just no longer fit the direction that the offense was moving towards. Still....far from a tragedy! Kid from a well to do family getting a free education....he'll land on his feet just fine
