If you’re going to flip a 5 Star, you have to get your most irrational fans to tweet them. First they need to tell them they would look good in the scarlet and grey. Then escalate to insulting their future college team. Finally, you start telling them how much they will suck at LSU or Texas and how Bama or Oklahoma is going to make them their bitch. If none of that works, forget it, they were never coming here and they suck anyway.
I thought UM might be a player in the Stroud recruitment, but the visit has passed, no CB’s and they are hosting another QB this weekend. Hopefully OSU gets Stroud’s commitment this weekend. Is he formally announcing on signing day?
The only thing I disagree with is OSU could possibly be the #1 seed. The committee has over-valued Georgia all year and when LSU thumped then, they were going to be #1 no matter what OSU did. Even if Wisconsin beats Illinois and their only two losses were to OSU, we would still be the 2 seed.
You know you’re spoiled when people are talking about the improvement needed from a Heisman finalist.
I know he didn’t play amazing Saturday, but a sprained mcl can do that.
Browning is almost there. Just needs a little more consistency to be really good.
Congrats Mr. Fuller. All the hard work is paying off. To be that smart and that good at football is amazing.
I think I mentioned this before, but if I remember correctly, Kurelic said that when Steele visited UM for The Game and he stayed at the same hotel as the Buckeyes. He watched the Buckeyes arrive on the buses and ran into several OSU coaches. He even rode the elevator with our coaches.
I assume he was on an unofficial visit and his family picked and paid for the hotel themselves, but seriously Michigan? You can’t allow you’re visitors to stay with your rival, especially if they are recruiting the same guys. Success is found in the details and that’s a major oversight...and freaking hilarious.
This game might end 59 - 56 with whoever gets a turnover wins. The SEC is overrated and while I really don’t have any problems with LSU, ESPN’s constant bragging about them and putting down the Big Ten, has me wishing every SEC team that plays in a bowl gets embarrassed.
michigan will probably lose to Bama, but the excuses for them have already started. No Tua, lack of motivation, guys sitting out. I’ve heard it all already. I seriously am telling myself I want UM to win. We’ll see when it’s game time if I can actually want them to win, but for now, I do.
Everybody knows it’s the top 3, then Oklahoma and everyone else. For some unknown reason the committee loves Georgia. I guess it was the thrilling 6 point home win over an undefeated Notre Dame team. ND was 2-0 at the time. Michigan May have beat the same ND team by 31 but I guess Georgia had already broken their spirit.
Maybe it was the win over Florida. A Florida team that would’ve at best finished 3rd on either side of the Big Ten. What I know. I’m just a fan.
The SEC is shit this year. Bama has been propping them up for the last few years. They may not win a bowl game and for the first time in my entire life I’m going to do something I swore I would never do...I’m going to root for Ttun to kick the shit out of Alabama.
What time are they announcing the top 4?
The guy is too good not to be playing and nobody can blame him for doing what’s best for him. I don’t like losing good players but this is totally understandable.
Great topic. I changed my sweatshirt and watched the second half outside in the garage. It was freaking cold, but so was the beer and you know what?...it worked.
The committee has shown to be pretty damn good this year and they will take into account everything which leads me to believe they will get this right. OSU will be #1. The only thing that worries me is they over-valued Georgia all year. Georgia struggled with teams they should have beaten soundly if they were half as good as the committee thought they were.
Fromm was awful today. Fields was pretty great considering he has a sprained MCL. Kirby has to be kicking himself. He made the wrong decision going with Fromm.
Coan can thank the officials for the last hit. The play should have never happened. The time should have run out on the sideline catch with 18 seconds left. The WR was clearly moving backwards when he went out.
Brady and Winovich took that bet knowing damn well they would lose. Something tells me they’ve been wanting an excuse to wear the Scarlet and Grey.
Badass! The Napoléon Dynamite scene was hilarious.
You don’t have to be a strong x’s and o’s guy to be head coach. If you can recruit and run a solid program you’ll be in good shape but you better fork out some cash to your OC and DC.
I remember the Xavier game. I believe Ron Lewis hit a deep three after a missed foul shot to send it to OT. Then the next game Tennessee had like 25 point lead or something like that but Lighty had a nice old-fashion 3 point play right before half that got the lead under 20 and started the comeback. - Almost every team that wins the tournament has a close call like the Xavier game. Didn’t OSU win the Big 10 regular season and tournament that year?
I can’t remember who took the final shot against Kentucky in the game you mentioned, but I do remember thinking all he had to do was hand the ball to Diebler who was just a step behind him and Diebler would’ve made it. Coulda, woulda, shoulda, I guess.
Thank you for responding to my Stroud question. Since he canceled his Oregon visit but made the one to Michigan (I assume he’s there), I’m still a little concerned because they have an opening at QB next year and the returning backups haven’t exactly looked great. He would have a legit chance to start right away. Is he planning to be an EE?
I’ve read that OSU doesn’t negatively recruit, but surely someone at OSU has to be pointing out the fact that Harbaugh has been there 5 years and has failed to develop his QB recruits, right?
2006/2007 was the best I’ve seen. I still believe OSU was over-confident in football and would’ve beat Florida in a rematch. The basketball team would have won the championship if it was any other year. They just ran into one of the best college teams in the last 20 years. Defending champs and everyone important to the team can back. Ridiculous.
I think Utah is the path of least resistance. If OSU plays at the top of their game, it won’t matter who they play but OU has the potential to capitalize on any mistakes and make it a tough game.
I think Clemson takes it to LSU if they match up in the semifinal. I would rather see OSU vs LSU, but I don’t see that happening. Hell Georgia might beat LSU if Fromm plays a good game.
247 shows Stroud has an OV with Ttun this weekend. That visit has me a little concerned. They don’t have a QB committed for this year and he will have a legitimate shot to start for them next season. Regardless of the claims on MGo, they will do whatever they have to, to get his commitment.
Offensive Line is the hardest position group to project but I have zero concerns and I’m thrilled with the group of guys committed. If I showed tape of Dawand Jones and NPF this year, most people wouldn’t know which guy was #10 overall and which one was 1,000.
If you slow it down, you can see his hand is a little swollen. Brutus may not be able to do the necessary pushups or high fives this Saturday.
There was a post about still wearing their Michigan gear to work on Monday. There were several, “this OSU fan and his girlfriend said something to me and I called him little dick and got in his face and they ran away” type stories. Which is just hilarious because you know that didn’t happen and if it did, they didn’t say shit. It’s never been safer to walk the streets of Columbus in UM gear because they are no threat. If they weren’t so cocky the whole year, I would almost feel sorry for them.
Valenti though hit the nail directly on the head. If you haven’t listened, you should. He’s become can’t miss radio on Monday after The Game.
