Penn State had many successful years. Wisconsin has kind of been building since the 60-70's.....
FSU was nothing until Bowden's "we'll play anybody, anywhere, anytime" attitude; so, Tennessee was strong up to the 90's; Syracuse and Pitt had some good years, but not for the last 30 or so....
Well polar, when you wake up and find mrs polar-bobette has done her scissors thing, you might wish you had at least bought chocolates.....then, you wouldn't have the agony that the team is going through.
This last cycle, he had a highly ranked recruiting class.....somehow. Since then, his best two recruiters have moved on and I saw an article somewhere about how his first couple years, he recruited the heck out of the south, but lately, not so much. They did poach the best of Massachusetts this year, so there's that.....
(me singing falsestto) "oh won't you stay-ay, just a little bit longer"
Earle was a sincere guy that really loved OSU. I don't know if he took Art Slickschitz to the downs or not, but he met him there a few times. Also, he'd get a good recruit like Spielman, but miss on two or three or four other good kids from Ohio. Was reading a different buckeye magazines past column and one of the years they announced that OSU had the 7th ranked recruiting class.....IN THE BIG TEN! No wonder Earle had to go, but it was totally classless the way Ed Jennings did it. It cost us Rick Bay who I thought was a great AD.
I see LSU as a three or four loss team next year. Orgeron did well because, Joey. Ed didn't even know how to use him last year and I haven't seen any great QB's on their bench. Weak run game; slow offensive line.
JH - "WHO'S GOT IT BETT.....well, shit..."
Maybe it's because the Big Ten teams actually play 9 league games; not 8 like the SEC or ACC. Plus, most of the Big Ten plays power 5 schools; again, unlike the SEC
Hate Gene because he went to ND, but I gotta admit, he's a hell of a business man. He's been talking about declining football attendance nationwide for several years and the wifi upgrade was in response to that.
Now, Drake: that guy is a twit. Great speaker and kind of funny, but he bows to and kisses the ass of every liberal movement there is.
Free Tibetian enslaved gerbils? sure, send em money and give em OSU scholarships....
There was an article, on Eleven Warriors I believe, that stated neither Wilson nor Schiano were considered for interim: Wilson for issues that may have occurred while he was Indiana HC and Schiano since he was affiliated with Penn state....
I have always liked Glen Mason; BUT, when you look at his career: he has always taken any team and made them a winner. But never a champion. People would downplay Tressel's championships, "but it's only Div 2", yeah, but so were everyone they played. There's a difference between a winning record and a championship.
Most programs want Urban, but some friends and I were talking about why Urbz would NOT want to coach:
1) Health - that cyst thing is still there
2) spouse - a HC job is never done; working, planning, recruiting. Shelly might like this TV gig since he's busy during season, but free the rest of the year.
3) Family - now that his kids are settled and he has grandkids, I'm pretty sure Shelly wants to live near, like right beside, her grand babies. Even Urban knows better than to mess with that.
4) Championships - Urban knows he can build NC at multiple schools; what's left to prove? That he can kill himself by working hard? I don't see it. Both USC and ND would need several YEARS of cruitin to bring them back up to high levels.
Nah, won't happen.
It seems like Urban was able to rally the team for big games but Day seems to have them playing more like professionals: Do your job to the best of your abilities; practice hard to hone your skills; play to the best of your abilities and within the scheme...
Penn State starts out well with their scripted plays. Meat-chicken caught up with a weak offensive line, poor tailbacks and a qb that has trouble throwing more than 15 yards. I say we win by 28 over penn state; then slam ttun
I can't see "darted"....I picture more of a "slooowwww rrrooolllll"
You should never, NEVER, argue with stupid people: they'll just try to pull you down to their level and beat you with experience....
I'm no expert, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say JD Spielman can't play for MSU after playing for Nebraska last week....the portal just doesn't work that fast....if it does, let coach Day know right away!
You might want to check that receiver thing....
I'm thinking the original poster might be coach jim from up north in disguise....
Where KJ Hill MAY have been telling Michigan he's getting the ball, I'm starting to wonder if once he goes in motion and the DB follows him, if he's pointing out to the QB that he has man coverage on him?
I'm sure you meant to type "Okudah" and errantly typed "Borland"...lol
Dear Heavens!!....why, oh why....and on a Friday of all days!!.
Is nothing sacred??
Hmmmm.....nah, not necessarliy....
