I mean, a kid died doing the Mirror Lake jump. Everyone who ever did it (myself included) knew that was probably going to happen one day. It's kind of ridiculous to hold that against him.
Lol no he's not. YSU made him president because he could fundraise from all the alumni. OSU is going to hire someone with a doctorate that has spent 30+ years in academia. Despite all its publicity, athletics is still just a tiny piece of the overall pie.
The university is better now than when he took over in terms of both academics and fundraising. Those are basically a president's two jobs. Football fans might not like him, but that's not really his problem.
They literally named two different candidates for us.
Some folks just choose to be unhappy I guess.
We fell from pre-season #5 to #8 after Week 1 (first chance they got to vote after the Braxton injury).
After the Barrett injury we actually rose from #6 to #5.
I agree, but it would be nice if Jimbo earned some of his millions and upset either UGA or LSU. That would remove any doubt.
I would just add they need to REALLY beat Auburn. Just like OSU might not have gotten in if we beat Wisconsin 17-14, if you're only going to have one ranked win all year you better make one hell of a statement.
It doesn't get discussed as much, but Oregon's resume also sucks. They have the same lack of good wins that Bama does. They would have a win over Utah if they win out, but that's still not much to hang your hat on.
The committee left us unchanged after Barrett got hurt in 2014. I don't think they need to drop Bama like a rock (yet). But if/when they either lose or look unconvincing vs Auburn it will take care of itself.

He might be playing Four Corners. Quite controversial in the Bingo world.
I was surprised to see him at all. Kinda thought they’d have him rest this whole week. Trust the docs I guess.
Dwayne obviously didn't much on the first TD, but that scramble throw to Terry was really nice.
They don't discuss injuries, so we won't know until the depth chart comes out. This is the first week the injury report will actually be totally accurate. If you're not playing in this game you're actually hurt, and not just being held out for caution.
Just as a CFB fan it’d be cool to see LSU and Utah bring some fresh blood.
I think UGA is getting stomped in the CCG. Give the fourth spot to OU or Oregon/Utah.
The 2015 team is one of the most underachieving teams of all time. Even aside from MSU, they only beat Northern Illinois and Indiana by a TD each. The had a single shutout all year and never broke 50 once. Even if you combine Cardale and JTs numbers the pass attack was putrid: 2500 yards, 19 TDS, 9 INT.
It only gets more frustrating as years go by and those guys dominate on Sundays.
Every other team in the East is given a bowl ban. Michigan finally gets to go to Indy.
Fantastic. People who want them to be undefeated going into the Game are out of their minds. I hope they lose every game by 50.
You hate to see it.
The starting quarterback remained in the game until after the first drive of the second half, which ended with Fields throwing a 14-yard touchdown pass to Luke Farrell.
I was surprised that Fields played in the second half, but they seemed pretty intent on either working on TE passes or just wanted to get them on film so PSU has to prepare for it. Chugs threw to Haussman on the next drive too.
Why? Good for him. I’m happy with one year of Haskins and two years of Fields. It worked out for everyone.
Give my aunt balls and she’d be my uncle. Have to go with what they’ve done, but what they could have done.
No shame in being runner up. I think fields goes into next year as the front runner.
I mean, you can’t just gloss over 1500 yards. That’s just seven games worth of yards for Fields.
Burrow has 1500 more yards and 7 more TDs. It’s not really a race at all anymore.
