In for a penny, in for a pound. Great Michigan Man thinking.
Do you want to thank the replay ref while you’re at it?
I didn’t take it that way. You always have to ID a guy. He was probably just one guy in a locker room. The cop decided against arresting him. (Probably also because he was vastly outnumbered in a room full of big guys.). But when he found out the identity of the offender later, it enabled him to charge.
When I read that the government objects to releasing that formation, I suppose it’s because those UFOs are actually defense technology they are trying to keep secret.
What they really meant was that it’s stolen money. He stole it from the Browns.
We are doing just fine in the QB room. I got no complaints.
I’m sure in their minds, Shaun Wade should have been ejected, but not their guy.
they got away with a launch at Dobbins in the Fiesta, didn’t they?
IIRC Parson’s own father said Ohio State had basically stopped recruiting him before the Gameday violation. There was a feeling that Ohio State really wasn’t giving up anything when they self-reported that recruiting violation and agreed to stop the recruitment.
I’m still totally pissed about the officiating in the Fiesta Bowl. But knowing that smug smile has been wiped off Swinney’s face makes me feel just a bit better.
Congrats to Joe on the championship. If he gets drafted by the Bengals it’s probably the last one he’ll ever enjoy.
The refs stole 7 points directly off the board. Give those back and Ohio State wins.
I hate Clemson. I absolutely hate them. This whole thing is galling beyond belief.
I still haven’t let it go. Yes, the Buckeyes had opportunities to overcome the bad/biased officiating but didn’t. Still, they shouldn’t have had to overcome the bad/biased officiating and I believe it altered the outcome of the game. And I worry it could happen again.
How can we be confident we can win a title when bad/biased officiating is still out there to take it away?
Wasn’t Partridge the coach they hired who was - coincidentally— from the same school as Gary?
ESPN didn’t have to pay the officials to infect their decision making. They are constantly pumping up the SEC and Clemson and even published an article extolling the CFP seeding as setting up an LSU-Clemson final the entire country wanted to see (no disrespect to Ohio State of course). The bad calls showed that the refs at least had an ingrained bias against Ohio State even if there wasn’t actual corruption.
That is all true but unfortunately ESPN is still driving the narrative in college football that SEC / Clemson is better than everyone else including Ohio State. ESPN even published an article that the seeding set up the LSU-Clemson final that the whole nation wanted, no offense to Ohio State. I believe this narrative set up a bias that infected the officiating and altered the result of the game. Herbstreit is more ESPN than Ohio State and he’s part of the problem as far as I’m concerned. Having said as much, I’m not out there attacking him on social media.
I’m fine with the current system, but with fair and competent officiating
Thoughts? I’m thinking LSU was gifted a pretty sizable advantage with that no. 1 seeding, and they are gifted another sizable advantage with a home game for the final.
Checking in now, but prolly checking out unless it’s a comfortable game. Settling in for the agony and the ecstasy.
Twitter posting videos of pretty strong 4-corner O H I O s.
I seriously could not put up with that shit. I’d leave.
So the younger boys will be rooting along with 80% of the rest of the fans at the game.
That’s awful. Condolences to the families.
