I’ve said this for years. If we play LSU in the super dome like in 07, that’s just so unbelievably unfair. It would be the exact equivalent of playing them in Cleveland in January, and everyone knows how that would turn out. I’m not advocating moving it per say, I love NO and the game there, it’s just such an unbelievable advantage for the SEC and specifically LSU.
The last time I felt this confident we wouldn’t lose a game all year was 1998..ugh. Never underestimate how Sparty can ruin everything.
Even growing up in the 90’s, Marty and Jo were my brother and I’s lullaby falling asleep every summer night. It’s really impossible to imagine the Cincinnati Reds and 700 WLW without Marty.
They also blew out both participants in the national championship game. Could the mighty Hawkeyes or Boilers say that?
I’ve watched them and I believe with Paye, Uche, and Hutchinson, that the DL is actually the strength of their team right now..it would be the WRs, but Harbaugh has a funny way of making NFL talents like Black, Collins, and DPJ look very pedestrian.
100% right on... they do not do a good job of evaluating the dynamics of the college game. Bet the house on Wisconsin +6 this week. That’s easy money
I don’t know who DV’d this, it’s a pretty accurate take
Getting smoaked by Auburn and LSU, both of whom were in the top 10 at the time is not the same as the Iowa and Purdue massacres.
I agree completely that it’s way too early for any of this..But after the game in Austin last week, I’ve seen people in the media already trying to align the stars and push a 3 team SEC playoff this year. The Buckeyes won’t get left out if they’re undefeated, but still, it’s very concerning.
Ya Clemson has a team and schedule this year where they can play bad and still win by 5/6 scores every game.
Indeed.. also if Arkansas hadn’t had the miracle play to end the Ole Miss Game, Bama doesn’t go to ATL, and is a one loss, non divisional champ likely pushing them out of the playoff. It’s a cruel game sometimes. It’s been said, but I will restate it. The 2015 Buckeyes lost to the one team it couldn’t loose to at the worst time possible.
Yep.. you can tell an NY person wrote it. Do you really think if all that race stuff the article brings up were true, the best black athletes in country would still be kicking the door down to go play for him???.. Dabo is a huge d bag, and the article should have focused on the PED use by the team.
Harbaugh is a pompous, self-righteous, prick. Just the perfect embodiment of a TTUN man really.. he should of done right by James Hudson to fight/circumvent a corrupt system. If that includes lying or embellishing facts than so be it. He’s the type of dude who probably feels good about himself when he falls asleep at night because of his “integrity”, but probably doesn’t have any meaningful friendships or relationships.
Playing them on Friday night has “BIG west trap game” written all over it. I hope coach Day can channel some tresselian rage on them
Which I believe is a Vegas record for all football games ever recorded for college or pro. Don’t know how many that is, but it’s a lot
I believe they weren’t called for holding for the last 10 games of that year! Just unbelievable. Sad to Ed W at TTUN now
I cannot fathom Saban offered him a job.
I think it more of a Fields at GA situation in where a coach rediculously promised him an inside track to the starting job before he even arrived on campus
He was still on the team in 01 for Tressel’s first year and was moved to DE. Watch the disastrous UCLA game, he was an absolute terror that game and I remember him having a fairly productive season.
When I went to DSHS 01-05. The football program was elite (mostly because there was only two Dublin high schools back then) and I believe we only lost 3 regular season games in 4 years. Definitely fallen off quite a bit since then. Matt you also missed Indians reserve and clippers SS Eric Stamets as notable alumni.
This is a correct take
“Spot on accurate” is a bit of a stretch. I don’t remember very much controversy when he left BG or Utah, and he left those two programs in much better positions then when he got there.
Stop wearing alternate uniforms for the game. Not against them anytime else and actually like the black helmets. But leave the game out of it.
He had mediocre or worse teams at Ball State before he even got here. It was a terrible hire from the start. As the JP said, we’re not looking for national titles, but 90s level success where the program was in the hunt for conference titles every year and made the super regional 4 times seems reasonable
