Also, way to give us heart attacks by thanking the coaches and President Johnson first. Thought that was a bad sign.
Whoever said it was at 5:20 and made me watch five minutes of Stephen A owes me a beer.
He tore his ACL in November, so he should be healthy now (or close to it). Maybe the plan is to bring him along slowly.
That's assuming we lose games and none of the other contenders do. It's entirely possible the playoffs include 10-0 Clemson, 7-1 Bama and 7-0 Ohio State.
Damn, would be a crazy twist if he announces a transfer to UCLA though
For most players that would be true. But he did announce he was holding a news conference in January that we all assumed was him leaving for the NFL, but he announced he was coming back instead. So maybe the guy just likes press conferences.
I hope Wade comes back, but even if he doesn't I trust Coombs to get the young guys ready. By the end of the season they'll be solid. Really the only thing that would make me nervous would be if we had Minnesota in Week 2, as Morgan is probably the only conference QB to worry about.
Day said each coach has had more time than usual to come up with different schemes.
Color me interested. Don Brown just broke out sweating.
Nicole in absolute shambles rn
Basically it preceded most of those other ones and has been grandfathered in. New York and Boston celebrated it in 1792 for the 300th anniversary and every year thereafter.
Eh, that ship has sailed.
"Welcome to the 117th edition of The Game! 5-0 Ohio State is going to take on 3-2 Michigan here at the Horseshoe...."
Having it be the last game of the season leaves no margin for error in terms of cancellations or postponements.
This year's already going to be the exception to basically every "tradition" anyway, so put it at like Week 3 or 4. Let both teams warm up with a preseason of Maryland and Rutgers then have it.
It's definitely a meaningless title. Coach Mick is also an Associate AD ("Assistant AD - Football Sports Performance"). We have a Senior Deputy AD, who I assume is second in command, and also a Deputy AD. Then about 50 people with some version of Urban's title.
I thought I read that UCLA and OSU are considered lateral jobs in the AD-world. Football gets the focus, but I think Olympic sports take up a lions share of the time and the Bruins are good at those. Of course, he could just like living in Ohio more.
Lol Urban Meyer is not going to be the AD. The same board that suspended him for his terrible choices regarding hiring/firing coaches is going to put him in charge of hiring/firing every coach at the school? And that's before you consider the fact that he doesn't have any actual AD experience, like fundraising and supervising construction and dealing with all the nitty gritty compliance stuff that people like Gene spent 20+ years doing before he got to the big chair.
It's either going to be some associate AD we already have, or the AD at some random school that is apparently highly thought of in circles we're not aware of.
Hell, even that's the high end. Of the 130 FBS head coaches, 14 of them started their job in 2010 or earlier. Another 22 were from 2010-2015. Everyone else has been there for 5 years or less.
It doesn't necessarily have to be a bubble. If you're getting tested, and hanging out with people are getting tested, you're fine. The trouble starts when you decide to randomly go into a bar or party with 50 other people. But I trust we've recruited guys smart enough not to do that.
I know I shouldn't let something as ultimately silly as football affect my overall mood, but man it just feels different now. Like Fall can actually happen in its regular order of things.
Its, uh...."Trey". But duly noted.
Sweet baby Jesus, what a day.
Bama-UGA is the week before we start. The winner of that game is a lock for #1, with probably Clemson at 2, and Oklahoma a 3. So I'd agree and put us around 4, maybe at 5 behind Bama/UGA loser.
I think this is the first time they've spliced in other video. I like the possibilties!
Warren today: “The only goal we've had," Warren says, was to return to play so the student-athletes would be able to have a safe way to play sports this fall.
Warren on August 19th: "The vote by the Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors (COP/C) was overwhelmingly in support of postponing fall sports and will not be revisited"
Guy can't even tell lies without exposing his own incompetence. Resign already.
