Haven't heard pre-season freshman hype like this since Dontre Wilson. Hoping this time it proves true
So it is possible, this is all I really wanted to know.
College (video game)
That will be a good add-on for NCAA 19
Are we still counting the browns as a professional sports team? /s
Cleveland has the most diehard fans in the state, that's for sure.
Put Michigan at the bottom and Ohio St at the top and nothing in between matters
Surprised there isn't more love for the Rose Bowl win over Oregon. Aside from a great game, it exorcised demons from the 3 previous years of losses to Florida, LSU, and Texas. It was the programs first big win on a big stage since beating Michigan in 06. The win felt like redemption and will always stand out to me.
Just thinking about playing 82 games makes my knees hurt, and I'm 28. The games don't matter and the players don't play like they care until the playoffs anyway, let the players rest and be fresh for the only part of the season worth watching.
It could be that his prediction is that the actual depth chart will have those positions listed as "or". If you compare this depth chart to ones the team has released in the past, Eric probably takes more of a stand than Urban Meyer does when it comes to naming starters
I understand the benefits of it, as you stated. But doesn't this lead to some complacency/entitlement of these players, or at least not keep them as hungry? Seems like last time we talked about the 2000 rep club we had a team that didn't wake up until a home loss to a Michigan state team playing their backup QB. Also, coming off a 31-0 loss I would say our first team needs as many reps as possible.
I agree with you that it's frustrating it takes a loss to bring changes. I think it's selective memory to say the fan base always knows what needs to be done. I was saying the fans would have fired Herman after va tech and then maybe the improvements that we saw are never made? So while Urban is maybe too patient to make changes, the fans are on the far opposite end of that spectrum.
I agree, not saying the O-line was the only problem just that coach Stud seems to have avoided the same criticism for an equally poor performance as other parts of the offense.
I'm not sure why Coach Stud has escaped having his job questioned more here in 11w (where everyone's jobs are questioned). For the first time under Meyer the O-line didn't improve drastically throughout the season, and didn't improve at all. And the lack of development of any depth is inexcusable with the talent on the roster.
Yes and no. The base base would have fired Herman (and Meyer?) after Virginia tech.
Having the offense roll vs Michigan and Notre Dame last year was the worst thing for offense this year because we thought the problems were solved by moving coaches to a box.
...and the 11 before it
Vico- thanks for this piece all year, it's been fun to follow along.
Honestly I think OSU fans would rather give up indoor plumbing as well
@sabaneatspuppies- your username is all once my favorite and least favorite username on here. The truth, emotion, and imagery from thinking too literally about it is overwhelming
Not that important? I jumped each year I was there '08-'12 and it was one of the most anticipated nights of the entire year. It's so much more than just jumping into a lake. It's coming together to collectively say "F Michigan" with 10,000 of your closest friends.
Where's Urban's loyalty to this program, knocking the pass blocking like that!?
Just so no youngin's fail a physics exam because of their 11W friends, force=mass x acceleration. (Kinetic) Energy= 1/2 x mass x velocity^2
28 players greater than Mike Doss!? The People...The Tradition... The Excellence
Should have said: AirForceNUT also talks about himself in third person.
Notre Dame-overrated as usual
