I want Clemson. I want them first. They haven’t been punched in the mouth yet and they aren’t ready for this smoke.
This game is gonna be OU by 30
Congrats!! Great news to wake up to. Go Bucks!
That's funny. "Hey guys, how about an 8:00 movie and dinner?"
I wasn't ready to consolidate, tbh I have spent this entire week bathing in the tears and excuses of Michigan fans. I may post three more forums on it this week because, well, I don't think it's an 11W rule that we have to post everything in an obscure thread.
We have literally 4 of the top 100 WRs in the class including 2 (and maybe 3, soon) 5 stars. We don't need or want anyone else.
How many starters at MSU are players that Michigan lost in recruiting battles? I bet it's maybe 1-2. So, it doesn't hurt them that much.
I hadn't realized how deep the Michigan rot was until I engaged with their fans in several different on-line forums and listened to two of their regular beat-writers' podcasts.
A huge, huge chunk of their fan base actually believes what CalPoppy wrote. Which is precisely why things aren't going to change there. They would rather pretend to be virgins than do the work to win.
In the last 5 years, there have 3 recruits we lost head to head against Michigan that I really, really wanted to win: Kareem Walker, Rashan Gary, and DPJ.
And none of them ever laid a glove on OSU during their careers. Amazing.
DPJ will probably go under-achieve at the next level too.
The odd thing about recruits tying their recruitment to a great, young assistant coach:
If he stays great, he is leaving some time. The only way he stays is if he isn't doing so great.
Clemson is good. But not so good that the team that believes it is the best in the country should be crapping their pants about playing them.
Hopefully we stay at number 1. If we drop to 2, game on - let's line em up and play.
Clay Travis is just trailer trash Skip Bayless. He flogs the SEC because: 1) that's his audience. 2) his Tennessee Volunteers are really excited about their 7-5 record.
As with Stephen A or Skip, there is no point getting worked up about Travis - he just wants attention, and he doesn't even necessarily believe the things that come out of his mouth. Controversy is good for business.
I always thought the whole "Urban is faking health stuff" is a really weird take.
That's not unpopular.
I'm surprised Davis hasn't been on the lists yet.
I agree with the OP. I think LSU's defense is soft, and I am not sure its high flying offense performs at the same level against the Georgia D, which is elite. The next best defense LSU played was Auburn, and the score was 26-23.
In fact, I would go one point farther: I would rather play LSU than play Georgia in the playoffs. I think we would have a more likely win against LSU.
Yes! The notion that OSU backdoors into the 4 slot if it loses: don't be so certain. If Oklahoma or Utah kicks the snot out of its opponent; if Baylor avenges its only loss. Can we be certain the committee is putting the Buckeyes in? Not certain enough.
Win Saturday. Win big.
Arnette is going to test his way into the first round I bet.
Well, they have 2 guys who have been injured basically the whole year among the 8 (Moses and Lewis - who we nearly got on our team!). And, their 2017 class was - along with our 2017 class - a spectacular class. One of the best ever.
Nuts. They have decided to swallow another mediocre year. Cascading series of events there, resulting in a new president and a new AD which bought Helton more time. USC is a top 5 job with a top 100 coach.
I know he had the physical gifts to be a great Buckeye QB. But his mindset, temperament and toughness have far exceeded my expectations.
I feel like the week after an epic beat down, it is perfectly appropriate to have tons of schadenfreude posts. Inject their misery straight into my veins.
Next week we can consolidate again as we focus on the playoffs.
The money differential between the head coach and the assistants is too high relative to their worth. It creates a weird situation - Chris Ash knew he wasn't going to win at Rutgers, but at 4mm+ per year, guaranteed, you almost can't turn down an HC job.
Somehow at Clemson they found a sweet spot of paying Venables really well, but they also have a guy who is just excited about the quality of life there. That's so rare though - I think for any of us, if someone said to us: you can take a job making 4X your current salary, guaranteed for 5 years, and yeah it's gonna suck and you will miss your old job - we would still take the job.
I thought that was a terrible policy because Urban treated it as a two way street, which meant we had Tim Beck and Ed Warriner doing whatever the hell it is that they were doing for an entire year longer than necessary.
