Yes it was the biggest upset in Title game history.
Unless you lived in Ohio or were Rob Chudzinski (who I believe is on record talking about how terrified he was of the OSU DL vs. Miami OL matchup) :)
For me, game one of the 2005 World Series. The Sox had steam rolled up to that point and steam rolled through the series so it wasn't a climactic series so much as it was 4 high pressure climactic wins but that whole atmosphere was a site to behold.
With that said, sorry Tribe fans but the Cubs winning the series was also the last great American sports story and it played out in front of our eyes in such dramatic fashion. I am an unabashed Sox fan so I was torn. Going into game7 I think my hatred for Cubs fans slightly trumped my dislike for my team's biggest rival but as the game went on I reasoned with myself that as long as Aroldis Chapman didn't get the save, I would have been fine. Once Raji hit that bomb I didn't care who won at that point. With all that said, the Cubs winning was a pretty big deal.
Very hard to find a better choice. I was a freshman when he was a junior and I remember when he came back thinking there was something worth staying for....boy was there. Doss is an all timer.
I have a few obvious ones but I always loved Darrion Scott. That entire 02 Defensive line is probably the best ever and Will (RIP) went on to have the best career, KP had a really good, splashy senior year, Tim Anderson was sort of a fan favorite because of the selfless things he did and Scott was a guy that simply ended you. If he got free on a QB, they were going down violently. I was in the stands when he almost killed Gesser in the WSU game and I swear to god the sound of that hit was something I'll remember forever. Also pretty sure he took 15 years off Gino Guidugli's life in Cincy as well. That entire defense had bigger stars and better players but when Scott got to the carrier, he never had nice things to say or do.
Man that whole Mitchell clan...something OSU would have been better without.
If its football player for football reasons, I'd be happy to do away with Steve Bellisari.
If it's because of how bad of a dude they are, Dahlmer and Nelloms are your club house leaders.
Ok, first of all, don't put Jim and Urban in the same sentence until Harbaugh finds a way to beat Meyer. This isn't Urban AND Jim's conference right now. It's Urban's. And no one else. If you want to be the team to beat in the Big Ten, there is ONE team you are chasing and they sure as hell don't wear maize and blue.
We've heard this before too. I believe it was the great American philosopher Omar Little that said something to the effect of coming after the king and not missing?
Get in line Nebraksa, Ohio State has scored like 30 touchdowns against you in 4 games and one of them had something called a Joe Bauserman playing QB. Since Meyer has come to town, OSU has scored 50+ (60 + twice) on your famed blackshirts each time they've played. NO ONE is running scared, least of all Urban effing Meyer.
8. CHICAGO BEARS: QUENTON NELSON, G, NOTRE DAME
The Bears shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to draft Nelson if they get it. The Bears need a guard, Nelson is arguably the safest bet to be a star at his position in the entire draft and his offensive line coach at Notre Dame, Harry Hiestand, is now the Bears’ offensive line coach.
YES YES YES YES YES. The only thing I'm ok with other than Nelson is Denzel Ward or Tremaine Edmunds.
Hey man, I appreciate that. I like rattling some cages around here, sure, but its (ALMOST) always from a place of candid debate. Franklin is so many mirrors and so much smoke in so many ways-both on the field and off it. His BS parlor tricks don't fool me.
Where there is smoke, there is fire.
Always the self-aggrandizer...
He probably should have checked in on his players a little closer at Vandy, or maybe didn't advise them to delete evidence that might have been (GASP) damning to his program.
He makes a fine show of it otherwise, but James Franklin is a grade a douchebag. Get bent.
