Since Rutgers joined the Big Ten, it has usually been a very competitive basketball game between OSU and them. Old, tough arena to play in up there. And they beat us in the Big Ten tournament a couple of years ago. Now football is a different story. Good grief---they are bad! GO Bucks!
Very strong statement from Carpenter. Interesting--but not logical. It seems like this idiotic Chase suspension could have a favorable ending for him and OSU. If he misses the Rutgers game--no big deal. And Day said the week before Maryland, he held him out of practice. Day claims that week is the same as a suspension week. So, according to Ryan Day, that is 2 weeks of suspension for him already. If the suspension is 2 weeks or less, then he could play at Rutgers. If it is 3 weeks, then Rutgers should be week 3 according to Day's logic. I think everybody could live with that. If is 4 or more, maybe Carpenter is right in his thinking. If PSU is his first game back, you will see one angry Chase Young on the field and they may carry a few offensive Lions off the field. GO BUCKS and GO CHASE
J K is the best! If Chase is back for PSU, he will play his best game of the year and PSU will fall big time! For both parties I think the two game suspension is good for both.. Chase did do something that violated the freaking NCAA rules. Although it is a ungodly situation for him. Getting a loan and paying it back seems like something we all have done before. How does that indicate an unfair advantage over other athletes? And, the NCAA will save face. They will show their you"power" by the suspension and nobody will question them because they acted and showed their "power of enforcement." Chase gets to play against PSU and Michigan. The NCAA shows that "you better not cross us or your ass is ours." Also, I would like to be the first to welcome Chase to the Bengals for next season. They are doing their best to make sure they draft him. For Chase--GO BUCKS! For the NCAA--Go straight to----well you know!
I really hate to say it---but Dantonio has not kept up offensively with modern football--and it shows. Defensively, MSU has been good and sometimes great. But, please remember he was a very important assistant coach on the National Championship team the year we beat Miami for the championship. And he still has great respect for OSU. So, I hope he is not fired at all. If he thinks it is his time to hang it up, so be it. He is not stupid, he is well aware of his own situation. And I hope he makes the right decision for himself and MSU---whatever that decision is. He deserves that much. He does not deserve to be flat out fired. GO BUCKS! Good Luck Mark as well!
That is a huge loss for the Bucks! Kid has had some real bad luck!
And to add to the woes of Chase if that happens, the Bengals are leading the race for the number 1 pick!
NCAA sucks on many things. But, if Young does not accept the loan, the NCAA would be a non-factor. Good God, let's hope this family friend is just that and not a "friendly" agent! Has this family friend come forward on Chase's behalf? Has the NCAA contacted this family friend? If not, that might help Chase a lot GO BUCKS!
Facts are facts---UFM kicked the living shit out of Harbaugh. Now consider this---Ryan Day is the guy who could continue the same thing. Urban was hesitant to put Haskins in the game 2 years ago. But when JT just could not go any longer, Haskins came in and won the game. Harbaugh stuck with the same pathetic quarterback the entire game and he eventually threw the interception that killed Michigan. Nice coaching Jim. And Day might someday be a better game coach than Urban. Scary thought if you are a Michigan fan! GO BUCKS!
Haven't heard Carter too much on television. I said for years he was the best receiver OSU has ever had. Now, in the years of our great wide receivers, that may not be true, Off topic, if Urban used Michael Thomas correctly, he would have been our all--time best. Just look at what he is doing in New Orleans, Back to Carter, we had a tailgate before a Michigan game a few years ago, It was put together by the OSU Alumni Club. Cris was scheduled to attend and sign autographs for the alumni, To make a long story short, he stiffed the Alumni Club. He never showed. I lost lots of respect for him as a person that day. But I never did lose respect for him as a football player. GO BUCKS!
I think the Bucks win easily---but covering 44 points is a major task. I remember sitting in the stadium last year in Maryland watching a track meet instead of a football game. 52-51 final in OT and Maryland went for 2 and had a wide open receiver in the end zone and their quarterback flat out chocked the pass. I know last year was last year and this year is this year. But, they did score plenty on last year's defense. But again last year is history. I think we win in the 35-38 point range. GO BUCKS!
I think Luke could handle the job at USC. Remember when he was here, we were within a finger tip of upsetting Michigan in Ann Arbor. Posey just missed that catch late in the 4th quarter. The former AD at UC taking over at USC also might enhance his chances of getting that job. Now here is why he will NOT get the job. USC is steadily going backwards. They need a big time name to spark the team and get fans back on their side. That is not Luke! Enter Urban Meyer.--heard half an interview on radio with a college "expert" from the LA area. When asked about Urban taking the job, he replied he thought it was a done deal and he would be their next coach. He said everywhere there is talk in LA with fans and USC students, they all KNOW he will be their coach. Not being critical of Urban--because he was arguably the best coach that we ever had--but does this not seem like deja vu all over again? Florida---great coach--won one National Championship--sickness led to his leaving Florida--did a TV gig--came to OSU! .GO BUCKS and GO RYAN DAY!
Heard a college football analyst on radio last night--heard middle of the interview until the end. This guy was talking about the possibility of Luke being in the mix for the USC job because the current AD at UC just accepted the AD job at USC. He was a West Coast analyst . He gave Luke no chance to land that job. Why? Because the fans of USC and the LA press "know" that Urban will be there next coach. And he added that Urban WILL be the savior of their team. I have no feelings either way. But, I hope Urban still remembers the headaches he had at OSU. And the fact that he has a brain cyst that can not be operated on a second time. God Bless Urban and just hope he thinks this through and makes the right decision. GO BUCKS! GO RYAN and GO URBAN!
The kid was a highly regarded college football player--possible first or second round draft pick--now this? The NFL does not take cases like this lightly. How much money has he cost himself? Also, rumors still persist here in Cincy that Luke is at the top of the list at Mississippi State if their coach gets his wish and lands the Rutgers job. The former PSU assistant -the current Mississippi State coach--wants to return his Eastern roots. What is that coach on? GO BUCKS!
That rumor has been spreading in Cincinnati as well about the Mississippi State coach wanting to go to Rutgers because he has Eastern ties. But, part 2 of the rumor is that Luke is the man Mississippi State wants.
PSU just played at Iowa and Michigan at home back to back---and they won both--no small feat. Remember if we get into the Big Ten Championship game, we will play PSU, at Michigan, West Champ on three consecutive weeks. So, that is 3 rough games in a row, If any team can handle that--we can! GO BUCKS!
Mike has had a nice career. With the Bengals he was solid for years. However, at the end of his career there, he began missing field goal after field goal. Then his extra points became an adventure as well. Mental or physical, his decline was rapid. Very surprised when he was picked up by the Pats. Not surprised when he was less than successful there. Wish Mike the best in life. Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye. Good luck! GO BUCKS!
Cheap now---wait until the Bucks find out where they are going. The airlines will raise prices immediately after the selection show. If you are confident we are going to Atlanta and the prices are cheap now, book your flight now. If they go somewhere else, just change your flight to that city. Yes, you will have to pay a $50 change fee. But, that would be much. much cheaper than what the kick in price will be. And if worse comes to worse and you have to cancel, there would be a charge for that as well. It is a gamble, I know. Give you one example---a round trip from Columbus to Lincoln was going for about $300 in the summer. As the game date was drawing closer, the same flight jumped to $750. That was more than a spike--that was highway robbery.
We usually play well in Arizona. But, we lost to Urban and the Gators in the National Championship game in Phoenix.
Let's look a little on the side of reality. After all results are in after yesterday., if we win our next 3 games--Maryland, at Rutgers, and PSU, we will be the Eastern Division Champs and headed to Indy. no matter what Michigan does the rest of the year. If we beat PSU, even a loss at Michigan and PSU winning their last game would give us a tie with PSU and we would both have a loss and we would go to Indy because we beat them head to head. So, Michigan can not "ruin" our season. They could put a dent in our season. But, if we go to Ann Arbor knowing that our next game will be in Indy, all pressure would be off us and it might end up being a wild, entertaining game. Win the next 3 and we are Champs of the East. GO BUCKS!
I really like Kalib. Getting no pre-season love was expected. Kalib put in the paperwork to the NBA to see where he stood with them. It seems obvious that they told him that losing weight would be a great thing to do. I wish him all the luck in the world to make that NBA dream come true. Also, he has to avoid those stupid body fouls that kept him on the bench for long periods of time last year. Looking forward to him leading the Bucks to a great season. GO BUCKS!
Obviously, St Nck is not going to reveal anything--and I agree with that. But, if the injury is slow to heal, then I absolutely think he will shut it down for the year. I heard Urban on BTN talk about Bosa shutting it down and he said he absolutely agreed with him doing that. He said if he had gone out there and got hurt again, it would nave cost him millions of dollars. In my opinion--same situation for Tua.
FYI--BTN will send their crew to Columbus Saturday to do their pregame show.
Starting to buy in on the Gophers. They are very talented in the offensive backfield and wide receivers as well. Antoine Winfield Jr is a tremendous defensive back. How did we not recruit him hard? His daddy was a gem at OSU. P J Fleck can be a little bit hard to take. But he said over and over he learned what he knows about football when he was an OSU assistant under Coach Tress. So, he can't be too bad a guy! Minnesota rolled Wisconsin in Madison last year--for what that is worth. OSU vs, Minny in Indy would be fine with me! GO BUCKS!
Use your Ad Blocker button. That eliminates all ads from all pages. Some companies might not like it, but the ads are gone from all pages.
The report on television last night confirmed what you said. He will be eligible in January. So, that is the entire league schedule--minus 2 games in December. So, he will help Wisconsin this year. Would love to know why he left OSU as well. Sort of a so-so player here anyway, GO BUCKS!
