They’ll give him at least 5 years. They were patient with Miles after he won it in 2007.
Impossible to answer this realistically until we know the results of Fields entire OSU career.
If he wins the natty next year, it’s a no brained, 3 yrs of elite qb play vs. 1 yr, and an equal number of championships.
My two have already been mentioned
Pulp Fiction - in my opinion, best dialogue in a movie, ever. I've rewatched it so many times I can almost quote it from start to finish
One of my favorite quotes, of many: "Well I'm a mushroom-cloud-layin' motherf***er, motherf***er! Every time my fingers touch brain I'm SUPERFLY T.N.T, I'm the GUNS OF THE NAVARONE. In fact, what the f*** am I doin' in the back? You're the motherf***er should be on brain detail. We're f***in' switchin' right now. I'm washin' the windows and you're pickin' up this ******'s skull."
Office Space - it's so relatable for anybody who has worked in that corporate cubicle environment. Can quote most of it, too.
Peter: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.
Or a grown man of any age on a message board telling other men how they should dress or.....
Guys, we aren’t as desperate as some of you seem to think. We are Ohio State, we don’t need to take a huge risk on a kid with this many red flags. Nobody is that good at football, this kid is a cancer.
Crazy that we're losing guys like Hill, Mack, and Victor and still may be able to upgrade the position group. Hartline is a godsend.
He loves recruiting and excels at it. He left because he was passed over for the promotion to DC.
Position coaches in the NFL make less than $500k. The main reason he left was because he was passed over for the DC job here. So he would be getting the job he wanted and probably double the pay.
I don't know if they have ruined sports, but they have definitely had a negative impact on the consumption of sports over the past decade or so. In their defense, they are probably trying everything possible to generate viewers and readers and to save themselves from becoming obsolete. They have to generate controversy because controversy improves ratings. Millions of people are cutting the cord every year, and that means billions of dollars in lost revenue for ABC/Disney/ESPN.
I'm officially cutting the cord after Monday night's championship game. The only time I watch ESPN or any sports network is during college football season anyway. And outside of that, I hardly watch regular/cable TV at all.
Shows what you know. I'm a degenerate gambler and even I won't watch Wake vs Duke. Just because I gamble on a game doesn't mean I have to sit through the misery of watching it.
Dalton is in far north GA, not far from TN. Pretty rural area, so likely the level of competition isn’t great. Not sure what size his high school is.
Wait until the season starts, or until you see the prices drop considerably.
Talking like that you're going to go and make me hate Saban less.
Where is everybody partying and/or watching the bowl games Friday evening?
Calm down, JT Stan. He’s barely on a practice squad. It doesn’t matter what fans think, no NFL team thinks he’s good enough to be on an active roster.
That’s a long ass drive! Good luck and safe travels.
What makes you so sure he’s not playing mind games? He was at Top Golf last night driving golf balls. If his knee wasn’t close to 100%, do you think the coaches would let him do that?
Don’t think there will be a “Clemson side”, but I’m on that side too. The tickets on the OSU side were quite a bit more expensive on the secondary market anyway. Demand and all that. But it’s all good, we will Be needed to make the O-H-I-O victory chant equally loud from all four sides.
If it was going to be close to a 50/50 crowd, I’d say it matters, but I think it’s going to be a virtual Buckeye home game.
I’ll be there. Live in Atlanta but will be flying into Vegas from Pittsburgh. Currently in eastern OH for Christmas, driving up to Pittsburgh to meet a buddy and we are flying out the day after Christmas. Will drive down to phoenix Friday.
Even more reason to cut the cord. Let ESPN overextend themselves and the watch revenues continue to drop.
We used to say this about California, now we are regularly getting kids from California. It’s cyclical. USC recruiting is trending down, so you see national powerhouse programs like OSU, Bama, and UGa going out there and stealing elite kids. It’s all about finding those opportunities. Same can be said for Texas the last ten years. Texas and A&M have been down, so look at all the Texas kids we’ve had.
They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?
College football already has socialistic ideals (not politically, just financially), where every team in the P5 conferences shares the massive revenue that the networks generate. Basically, there are a handful of schools in the country really driving that revenue, but every team in the P5 gets a huge chunk of it. It's like a luxury tax that should already be driving parity, but the problem is, the blue bloods continue to reinvest the money to improve their programs even more, whereas the Rutgers and other bottom dwellers choose to hoard the money or use it on things other than football.
There shouldn't be forced parity that benefits schools that willfully choose not to viably compete in football.
Exactly. These blue blood programs are blue blood programs because they've invested heavily into the programs for many decades. The non-blue bloods have had the option to invest in football and chose not to. Look at a recent up and comer like Clemson, they used to not invest like they do now, and look at where it's getting them now.
NIL isn't going to have much of an impact on leveling the playing field. Until the have nots decide to dig into their pockets and compete financially, they don't deserve to be on the level of the haves.
