I think this is setting up so much like LSU last year.  I'm sure Texas is at least talking to Herman through some back channels right now which is where all these rumors of Strong being gone are coming from.  I also don't think Texas will fire Strong unless they have very close to a guarantee from Herman that he will come there.  So I think you could see rumors float during the season and then have nothing happen.  Also it is interesting to note that the UH board just approved contract negotiations with "various members of the department of athletics."

Jimbo is being touted as the best coach at making halftime adjustments and I think the results speak pretty well to that.  The flip side of that coin:  is he that bad at preparing a team for a game? I can't think of another major contender that year in and year out is not good in the first half.  FSU was flat out terrible in the first half Monday night.

I think that the age has a lot to do with concussions in football due to simple physics.  Force is mass x acceleration.  9-12 year olds aren't going to have nearly the force that D1 athletes or even high school athetes do.  I don't think concussions are as big of an issue at lower levels of football because the force simply isn't there.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that they don't happen and aren't something we should focus on from a young age.  So yes, you may be seeing more injuries that aren't concussions from rugby style tackling, but I wouldn't necessarily attribute that to the tackling style.  Could be wrong though, just my opinion.

Watching some of those highlights was great.  I especially loved the beanie wells spin move in the backfield for the 50ish yd td.   He was a freshman then and I remember thinking how set we were at running back for the 3 years after that.  Little did I know what was coming after him.

I was born in 90 so I am fortunate enough to only remember the latter years of that run (#blessed).  One of my first OSU memories though is my dad slamming the door while yelling about Biakabatuka.

The other thing the Bammers seem to forget is that they had a loss as well.  A fluke play for Sparty against MSU would have put us in (no excuse though, we are the only ones to blame for losing).  Bama won their conference with a lot of help from a fluke play for Arkansas that beat Ole Miss.

Regarding your Bucket & Dipper story.  My dad went to Mount Union in the 70s where he was in a fraternity.  Some of the stories he told me would get you crucified today.  One of the funniest to me is that they also have a small lake (read: pond) on campus and every Sunday night during the warmer months they would find a virgin to throw into the lake.  As the kids these days say: IT WAS LIT!

Another thing that I didn't see mentioned was the fatty wagon at Great Lakes.  You can park there ($5 if I remember right), buy a ticket for a dollar and get a ride to and from.  Plus if you're looking for craft beer that is the way to do it.  Bonus is market garden across the street from Great Lakes as well.  That is what I do every time I go to Cleveland

And according to your table, he does better than the other 3 as the underdog.  Looking at the overall W/L ratio he is pretty much on par.  65% compared to 70-75% for the others.

I think his run in the B1G has been pretty remarkable as well.  In the 11 years he's coached here, OSU has been in the final 7 times, winning 4 of them.  Assuming we don't win this year, he still has won the B1G tourney title 25% of the time.  Izzo has only won 2 (probably 3 including this year) in that time frame.  Wisconsin has won two.  No one else with more than one.
