Kind of interesting that Fickell was our interim HC in 2011, that same year Chip Kelly's Oregon Ducks lost to Auburn for the title.  This week Oregon lost to Auburn.

17 point favorites for the battle of the 17th State, and Fickell can get his 17th win as the UC coach.

The game is on 9/7 and the last time OSU lost to an Ohio school was 97 years ago to Oberlin. The last time Cincinnati beat OSU was in 1897.

From Ryan Day's 3/12 birthday to 9/7 is 179 days.  179 is the 41st prime number.  With a loss Day will go to 4-1.

His 3/12 birthday is the 71st day of the year. I-71 runs between Columbus and Cincinnati.

Fickell born on 8/18, and from that day to the 9/7 game is 20 days.  71 is the 20th prime number.

Fickell was hired by Cincinnati on 12/10/16, from that date to the 9/7/19 game is 143 weeks. With a loss OSU would be at 14-3 all time vs Cincinnati.

From Urban Meyer's 7/10 birthday (his 55th) to the 9/7 game vs his Alma Mater is 59 days.  59 is the 17th prime number.  17th State is Ohio.  (9)+(7)+(20)+(19) = 55.  

Fickell went 6-7 as the interim HC in 2011.  67 is the 19th prime, 2019. His last game as the Gator Bowl vs Florida. OSU only scored 17 points in the loss to Florida's 24 for a total of 40 points.  Ryan Day is 40.  That was the 67th Gator Bowl also.

I have a feeling we are going to lose this game. Fickell's revenge. Karma for all the firefickell stuff maybe?  I just feel like They will be playing hard as hell for their coach. Fields is going to be forced to prove he can throw downfield minus busted coverage. I feel the Cincinnati offense has the potential to cause problems for us. I can see the headline now " Fickell ruins OSU's Day"

I agree, but I feel like this situation is a bit different. Typically when something changes in college football it never returns back to the way it was. Perhaps I'm overreacting, but I just feel all of this roster attrition and what now will seem like free agency in college football could be devastating to the integrity of the sport.

Can we get Qwuantrezz Knight?   I want a guy on our team named Qwuantrezz.

Comment 30 Jan 2019

Until we get into "agent" recruits.  Basically guys who sign with a school for a year for espionage purposes with every intention of going to a rival. It sounds far fetched, but give it time.  I personally hate the new age of college transfers. I like the old more rigid system for a few reasons. The primary reason being that once you make a commitment, stick with it. This all stems from a generation of entitled kids who can't handle the fact that in many cases they aren't the best guy like they thought they were. No one owes these kids anything, and when you decide where you want to play college football you sure as hell should KNOW that you want to go to school there. I understand it, but don't like it because of the lack of loyalty on both sides. With the direction things are going now recruiting won't matter in 10 years because everyone will be recruiting through transfers... which means the schools who decide to go this route will be less attractive to the recruit looking for a stable situation.  I think we could see much more of the better recruits gravitate towards stable programs that aren't shopping free agency to fill voids.  I get the competition aspect, but at what point isn't developing talent required from these coaches who get paid bank?  Right now, without slighting OSU, a school like Nebraska looks more stable from a coaching perspective than we do. Frost for example isn't going anywhere for a while. But at OSU we have seen tons of turnover in our staff for 7 years, and we now have a coach with no direct ties to Ohio State who could bail in a few years depending on how things go in either direction. Day could do great for 3 years and take an NFL gig, or he could suck and end up dropping down a level or taking an OC role elsewhere.  I'm just trying to envision a worst case scenario from a recruiting shift.  IMO all these transfers are going to destabilize rosters, which will change the way college football looks nationally.  I don't know about you, but I love college football because it's not the NFL. We are heading that direction and once it happens I don't think it can go back.

9/11/01: the following week Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe who wears #11 symbolic of the twin towers, gets hit by a New York Jet. New York the 11th State. In comes Tom Brady. The Patriot act passed... Pats win the Superbowl. The twin towers stood for 33 years, began construction in 1968.... That year the New York Jets win their only Superbowl, 911 becomes the emergency dialing code, 2001: a space odyssey released.

We are now 33 years removed from the Patriots losing their first Superbowl to the 1985 Chicago Bears, whom outscored opponents in the playoffs 91-10... sort of like a 911. That 85' season Joe Theismann broke his right leg playing QB for the Redskins, now 33 years to the day later, Redskins QB Alex Smith breaks his right leg on the same yard line as Theismann with the score being the same in both games. Lawrence Taylor and JJ Watt are the only two players to be 3 time defensive players of the year in NFL history. Both Pro Bowl tackles Joe Jacoby in 1985, and Trent Williams in 2018 missed the game where their QB's were hurt.

This is now the 9th Superbowl appearance for Brady and Belichick, 11th overall for the Patriots.

Saban wins his 6th title at age 66 in Atlanta.

Belichick can win his 6th title at age 66 in Atlanta.

This off season we get a ridiculous story about Tom Brady seeing a bear in the woods in Montana. Jared Goff the Cal Bear throws to Woods. Brady openly idolized Joe Montana and was a 49ers fan. Goff despite being born in 1994 wears #16 because of Joe Montana. Sean McVay will turn 33 years old before the Superbowl. McVays grandfather worked for Bill Walsh and the 49ers. McVay played his HS football in Georgia where Superbowl LIII is being hosted.

Since the beginning of the Superbowl era, every decade one team wins 3 superbowls. 70's Steelers, 80's 49ers, 90's Cowboys, 2000-2010 Patriots, 2011-2020.... so far the Patriots have wins in 2015 & 2017.

If grandma had a dick she'd be grandpa. Don't make a habit of getting smoked by a mediocre conference opponent. I'm sick of the whining. Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame won all of their games and deserved to be in the playoff. Lose a game and you are at the mercy of a committee. The point is simple, don't lose.  You can't lose and complain and play the victim. Losers play the role of the victim.

I agree, this year there were certainly a share of duds, but overall some of those games were fun to watch. I was surprised at how well Kentucky played Penn State and liked seeing Snell and Stoops get a deserved win sending McSorely off the field with a loss in his last game.  I was bummed to see Boise and BC get cancelled. I thought that would have been a good matchup. Wazzu and Iowa State was a good game also.

Comment 07 Jan 2019

NFL football hasn't been really good to watch in close to a decade. JMO of course.  Let's watch 32 teams all with seemingly even talent outside of QB run the same offenses. Musical coaches every year. HC gets canned, better go be a coordinator for 3 years then become a HC again. It's just become redundant and boring to watch.  I guess I just prefer the parody in the College game between coaching talent, player talent, scheme, and rivalries that have actual meaning... played by kids who wanted to be there. Not because they were paid millions of dollars to be told "hey you play for the Packers now, so you hate the Bears now ok?"
