I can live with LSU being a one for now. I see no reason to drop tOSU down to a three. The Committee will know that tOSU starters were pulled early and both Clemson and tOSU did what they had to do. Point differential on two meaningless games doesn't prove anything. Besides, tOSU wins the next two (or three) weeks would make them a sold 1 - 2 in any case. Clemson will have nothing to compare to those wins.
Could you at least wait until all of the flags and pennants are consumed by the fire before you piss on it? I mean, I appreciate your playing Smokey the Bear and all, but we don't want any tattered remnants of blue left in the pile, do we?
I could hear Harbaugh saying it now: "0 - 13? With a chance to go 0 - 14? Who has it better than us? Nobody!".
I'm not condoning what MG did in any way, but Rudolph started the fight by trying to tear off MG's helmet. Then, after MG yanked off Rudolph's helmet, Rudolph pursued MG. Did you see the picture? Rudolph put himself in harms way. Rudolph was actually more of an aggressor than MG was. Again, you don't swing a weapon at someone, but if Rudolph had bowed out of the fight after he lost his helmet, this wouldn't be the issue that it is today.
Good video, but a note to the editors... you can have the music turned up at the end when people are still talking. Can't hear what they said.
So you think our punter is actually going to see the field? There have been games where he wasn't needed.
"No black man under the age of 25 understands what a loan is". Makes me wonder how many 'loans' Desmond took while he was under the age of 25, which includes his entire time at _ichigan.
I would take Tressel seven out of eight times ( aka 7-1 ) against any coach at Michigan based on actual historical data.
That BS about Michigan being great against anyone not named Meyer is just that... BS, and that includes Jimmy boy who has yet to prove he can beat any Ohio State team... as a coach. I'll give him is due. He was a good QB, but not elite. He is a good coach, but not elite. Enough said.
And the best part? The meltdown at mgoblog continues...
WWR football records: 1970 9-1. Loss to Fitch; 1971 8-2. Loss to Harding and Kettering; 1972 12-0. State Champs; 1973 11-1. Loss to Mooney in the championship game; Best I could find.
It was around 1970 when Boardman, Fitch, Mooney, Ursuline, Campbell, Struthers, and Girard were in the Steel Valley Conference (SVC). I believe Harding, Western Reserve and Howland joined shortly after, with Struthers, Girard and Campbell dropping out. I remember watching Mooney beat WWR in '73 in the old Akron Rubber Bowl for the state championship. Both teams were loaded with future D1 players.
Today, Boardman, Fitch, Harding, Howland and Canfield are part of the All-American Conference (ACC) and Mooney, Ursuline, East and Chaney are the 'new' SVC. They play each other as part of a scheduling arrangement, but none of them are on a level with the Cleveland NE Ohio Independents and Cincinnati Greater Catholic League.
Still, considering the demise of the steel industry in NE Ohio, they play pretty good football.
Yeah, and if wishes were horses, then beggars could ride. A LOSS, at HOME, and really, by 12 points (don't tell me the fix wasn't in that LSU wasn't in pass prevent with under two minutes to go, and they gave up an easy 85 yard, one play score, just to keep it close).
Penn State lost, on the road, by the same margin, also to an undefeated team. They drop four spots. WHY wouldn't we expect Bama to do the same? Don't give me the BS about History... Tell me what Bama has proved... ON THE FIELD, THIS YEAR?
I'll give you a hint. Nothing.
P.S. Go Navy. Beat Army.
For the _ichigan kids that don't choose tOSU, Harbaugh is locking down MI. Better?
Too bad for Bama that it's a sixty minute game and the final score is cumulative total of your effort for that time. Their 'good second half' is more than eliminated by their 'stinking first half'. Who cares if you come back (but don't finish) if you dug such a deep hole in the first place? A loss, is a loss, is a loss.
Remember when Ohio State played _ichigan and they were ranked 1 - 2 and the played a close game? _ichigan felt they deserved a rematch in the playoff. They didn't get it!
"Team had a ton of talent". "They lost it on the field". "They lost. End of story".
Sounds like you are talking about the Bama team this weekend. The 2015 Ohio State team didn't make the playoffs. Using your argument, there is NO reason that the Bama team should make the playoff either. End of the day, they are ranked 4th ONLY because their name is Alabama and there is an obvious bias towards SEC teams... e.g. Good losses.
Elite (aka Top four teams) don't give up 46 points, while playing at HOME to anybody! Their last TD was a joke. LSU giving up an 85 yard pass play with less than 2 minutes left? Why weren't then in pass prevent at that point? They have up an easy TD (one play) to keep the score close. Even a 34 - 46 loss by Bama wouldn't have looked too good for Saban, would it?
Penn State lost by 5, on the road, against an undefeated team. They dropped 4 positions. Bama only dropped 2 positions. They should have both dropped by the same amount given that: 1) Both undefeated teams, were playing other undefeated teams; 2) Penn State was on the road. Alabama was playing at home; 3) Both Penn State and Bama lost by 5, but in reality, Bama lost by 12.
He said 'wife' not 'girlfriend'. A better question for you would have been 'Is she happily married'? LOL! No disrespect to BurningRiver. In any case, he'd say she is happily married to the most wonderful guy in the world.
While I don't disagree with what you said, not every 'student athlete' is on full scholarship. So... what about all those student athletes who take out college loans to pay for their studies? Those are loans, admittedly not from a family friend, but still, a loan! Why aren't those illegal? Hell, there are tons of students who use Pell grant money ($6,195 max this year) for things not related to school. Why is that not breaking the rule?
Whatever happens, I hope it's resolved quickly, and I wish Chase the best in his future endeavors.
The shots of the GA/FL dance lines were great... but they kept cutting back to the damn football game. Ruined what 'looked' to be a great game.
"First it was James Hudson, now it’s Myles Sims.
Sims, a former cornerback at Michigan who announced in May his plans to transfer to Georgia Tech, recently had his request for a waiver denied by the NCAA. And his parents are reportedly upset with the way Michigan responded."
“The disappointment is in knowing that (Michigan) included just a few words outside of what we said to mislead the NCAA in their decision-making,” Katrina Sims told the AJC. “Whether that weighed in heavily or not on the documentation we provided, we take issue with that.”
You can throw Aubrey Solomon in there for good measure too.
You can kiss Harbaugh's behind. I'll pass. Yes, the SCHOOL deserves credit for honoring the scholarship NOT Harbaugh or the football team. I hope you can understand the difference.
Overrated? Yes. Vastly overrated? No.
Everyone knows that *ichigan players have to heart (unless you count former running back Mike Hart). Jimmy certainly doesn't! So it would be hard to replace a valve when you have no heart.
Seriously, I do wish the young man the best. A *ichigan degree is a great thing to have. Not having to put on the winged helmet to earn one is a double bonus.
I believe the scholarship comes from the University, not from the athletic department. It doesn't count against their 85 football scholarship limit. So... don't be so quick to thank Jimmy boy. That's the same guy who throws roadbocks on guys who enter the transfer portal out of spite. They have no chance of starting for *ichigan, but he won't support them leaving anyway, unless the has a need for the scholarship and then he will boot their asses in a New York second.
Ok, we all know that Young is great, but on that final strip/sack, he is two yards into the backfield and the other three OSU defensive linemen are still at the line of scrimmage! I'm not saying they are slow, but Young must have fast twitch muscles if he watching the ball, or he anticipated the snap count. It looks to be the former. That first step looks like a sprinter coming out of the blocks.
"The Buckeyes have allowed 224.3 yards per game, which still ranks just barely behind Wisconsin (223.5) for second-best in the nation."
I KNEW they shouldn't have taken a knee the last couple of downs, and instead let Master Teague run for a another dozen yards. I don't care if he takes a knee at the one yard line.
