Is Skip Bayless unfamiliar with the concept of fun?
"On Saturday, Ohio State solved a similar wrench the Sparty defense threw at it - but early in the 2nd quarter instead of the following Tuesday."
This is my weekly favorite Ramzy quote ever.
I think the answer to scheduling FCS teams is not to count either the win or the stats accumulated. The home school gets their payday at the stadium, the FCS team maintains their athletic dept for a season, and no one gets to pad stats. When the college football playoff committee compares teams they compare win totals if there's a close call. Another option would be to keep everything as is except count it as a loss for CFP purposes only.
Do you see any candidates for voluntarily redshirting before transferring which seems to be a thing this year?
Thanks Iamlucasking! The 11w version doesn't have all of the interview. Just the good stuff!
Whenever I read Lebron's name on this site it's a trigger for me to stop what I'm doing and watch the clip of him yelling for Dobbins in the B1G championship game. Greatest. Clip. Ever.
You do bring up a great question: who has felt like they played absolutely forever?
Not worrying one bit is the single most enjoyable part of this team. Last year I lived in weekly fear of 90yd td's and underestimating opponents. I fear neither of those this season.
Buckfrombirth it's a shame I can only upvote "three six year starters" once. Amazing.
I like the 42 part of the 11w prediction but not the 13. Larry Johnson lost his mind when they gave up the long run and td last week, so I think they'll have a fire under them. 42 - 9 with MSU's kicker going 3 of 5 on FGs.
Does he have chronic Achilles issues? That's the second time he's mentioned almost tearing it during a press conference.
I'd really like to know the details on the "40+ points for four games since WW1" quote.
Proof USC and FSU need new coaches.
Day's been very supportive of the transfers so I think it was well intentioned.
It's always amazing to be reminded how important character is here.
Wasn't there a video floating around of one of Meyer's first practices during which he threw Michael Thomas out?
It may have been in a situational (it was definitely on 11w) but there was a great article about the impact of that game on college football history.
Agreed the team Meyer inherited had talent but not to the extent this one does. Either way how cool is it we're arguing which 8-0 start was better?!?!
I'm assuming this article is as amazing as all of Ramzy's work but I simply can't read past the 1998 reference without blacking out.
Great point AZBuckeye. Day is doing far better than expected but he is being helped by the machine Meyer built. I'm still going with Day because the games this year just have such a better feel. I look forward to Saturdays more than I have in a couple of years. I don't clench up every time a runner gets past the line of scrimmage.
Which recruiting year will be the first to have nothing but California schools in the top ten?
BrutusB Thank you sir. That's where I was landing but was concerned there was an injury.
Did something happen with Nicholas Petit-Frere? Earlier in the week he was fighting for a possible starting spot but only wound up playing 9 snaps.
