Agree, but that is a big if. It's not like OSU was using PEDs. That of course would have brought the hammer down instantly.
If I call Harbaugh a dumbass, I am doing the TTUN fanbase a service they do not deserve. Hypocrite, coward, pathetic loser, attention seeker with low self-esteem and impotent underachiever are but a few other descriptive terms I could have chosen from …
Dear Jimmy Harbaugh, the worst kind of anger is impotent anger.
Agree with most on this site. If Fields realizes his potential and the D improves (it can hardly get worse), it should be a special year.
Awful news. My prayers and thoughts for Wells and his family.
The 0-4 record vs. Meyer and historic beatdown last year are forever. Harbaugh blames the heavens for his own shortcomings, not realizing that he shakes his fists at blind stars.
In a way, it's win-win. Picking TTUN gives OSU more edge and aggression. As for TTUN, well, pre-season hype is all they really have.
Agree. This quote I saw yesterday sums it up: "They (TTUN) can go to France and South Africa all they want. One place they won't be going is Indy."
… except for from TTUN, if I perused the list correctly. Both Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan are represented though.
"Unlike many of college football’s other major conferences, there is no preseason All-Big Ten team."
Makes sense. In the B1G, one earns accolades at the end of the season, rather than being furnished with them prior to the first game of the season (well, except for TTUN).
Indeed, "we are all sizzle, no steak" ever has been TTUN's motto.
As I have said before, these things are cyclical. TTUN usually is really good from May to July, then starts dropping off around August, finally hitting rock bottom in late November and in the bowl season.
Rinse and repeat ...
Lathan's film is great. If you have not seen it yet, I highly recommend watching it. He has long strides covering the field and moves with vision and deceptive speed. Great pickup for Day.
Yoohoo! Awesome! Welcome Mr. Ransom. Lathan will be a hitman roaming our secondary!
Where can I purchase one of those guitars?
Pretty please, Mr. Ransom.
They are running out of excuses not to award Gee his fifth star. He dominates wherever he goes. The classic "but he has to show it in camps" argument goes out the window as well, since he has attended multiple camps and dominated his competition each time. He has also shown that he is a natural leader. Keeping Gee in the .96 range is a demonstration of incompetence. Just my take.
Sometimes I get the sense that the media is trying to speak TTUN's "resurgence" into existence. However long it takes. No matter how humiliated they are at the end of each season when proven wrong. Why, I do not know.
Agreed. JSN is a boss with very soft hands. Seems like he will catch any ball that goes into his general vicinity.
Honest question: Why do so many pundits place TTUN so high in their pre-season rankings? As far as I know, they lost a lot, especially on defense. Also, history suggests the high point of their bell curve will be in the pre-season rather than at season's end. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes - while starting a new QB - are stocked with talent all over the field.
Case of failing to learn from the past perhaps?
Success takes many forms. Brady will be successful, just in a different way than originally thought.
Three Michiganders enter a bar in Toledo and see an Ohio State Buckeye.
Seeing as they outnumber him three to one, one Michigander suggests they pick a fight with him. The 2nd Michigander says this would be unwise, as they could be charged with battery. The 3rd Michigander reminds them of their superior schooling and says it should be easy to outsmart him and provoke him to attack first. That way, it would be self-defense.
Michigander 1 approaches the Buckeye and says: "All Buckeyes are dim-witted morons that have an overblown ego." The Buckeye ignores this remark and takes a swig of his beer.
Michigander 2 approaches the Buckeye and says: "All Buckeyes are pansies and cowards. They talk a big game, run from competition and then make excuses for their failures." The Buckeye ignores this and carries on with his beer.
Michigander 3 assures his mates that he has a fool-proof provocation. He says: "Jim Harbaugh is a Buckeye!"
The Buckeye turn to him and says: "That's what your two friends were trying to tell me!"
I appreciate the story from ESPN, but shouldn't they be concentrating on $ 180,000 Booster payments in LSU and systematic PED abuse in Clemson?
Will the B1G really be decided in this stretch? That presupposes TTUN and PSU will not have multiple losses at that point. Some might consider that position a bit bold ...
"They're so sad and pathetic I almost take pity on them."
Yeah, that happens to me too on occasion. Then I recall the dark era known as the 90's and the hate once again flows freely, like the first warm breeze of spring after a particularly dreary winter.
