  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

So you didn't watch any of the 2H of Wisconsin or Mich St? If not, then I would surmise something my coach once told me:

"If you find yourself bored, then you have become slave to arrogance."

There is absolute amusement in seeing a death star annihilate what it faces, because the destroyed atoms don't spatter in the same pattern the same way all the time. Some blowouts happen so silky smooth that you forget that scoring over 50 pts a game is not natural.

Interesting the Texas Tom brought Ash in to help out. If I were Todd Orlando, I'd be looking over my shoulder...

If we are up more than 30 points by the 2nd quarter, we will likely see the 2nd string in before the half. I predict Chugz to play for 2nd half of Q2 and all of Q3, and I suspect we will see Hoak for all of Q4

Well for arguments sake, let's say that the NCAA committee found that the amount was in the range for a 2 game suspension. OSU were going to ask for a 1 game suspension... So we know by 2 games that it had to be in a certain range. We are not talking 10k here... So in the end, the fact that he already paid it back + cooperative must have been enough to put this to bed. The butthurt and want for harsher penalties at this juncture is wishful thinking. Every program who is not OSU would be taking the same position as OSU did so let's not make this a moral argument either. I don't see Michigan forfeiting all the games during the time Gibbons was there.

It's interesting that they are so willing to overlook the clusterf*ck defense we had under him once Fickell left. Granted he may be more suited to the HC job than a DC position but I guess whoever he would bring in for the DC role would have to be in line with his philosophies at minimum and maybe even someone willing to use Greg's system altogether.... Not seeing them winning many games if the latter is true

I have a longing for something like this. It doesn't go with the whole Scarlet Knights mascot theme thing. They need to get their branding in order. Hey, any chance we can take this with us to Ann Arbor later in the month? It would be so legit.

Sorry, I'm not a fan of Des, but I watched the clip, and I didn't hear any part of him insinuating what you quoted in the clip - is it from a different segment?:

"He said he took a loan - cultural Wednesday - RC, Dom, they will second this - Black student-athletes under the age of 25 don't know anything about loans. They borrow money with the intentions to never pay it back."

EDIT: I had to rewind a bit more to hear this part, but yes, this is just very clearly an inappropriate comment. What a disgrace

I doubt it because he had this team last year when he was coaching. If anything he is probably wondering why he let his loyalties to the friends and family make him so soft
Comment 13 Nov 2019
I'm convinced that those who do preseason rankings love playing the hypothetical game because they are banking on either side of being wrong so that they will have more to write about, so it is in effect a self-fulfilling prophecy for them - ie they can't lose their jobs because they have a story whether they are right or wrong. In fairness, not even our own fans could have foretold how Day was going to come out so mercilessly, but here we are, and I am living the dream. Than you Ryan Day. My brother-in-law went to law school at Minnesota and he is so stoked beyond belief. I had to remind him that he is a Tressel protege, and of course that made him have the same conflicted feelings I had, which is love the wins but hate the way the wins come by sometimes (that is turtle shell offense after getting a lead). I comforted him by reminding him the Jim Bollman is at MSU

I didn't know that outsiders were looking at our passing game as not being strong, but certainly understandable since JK has been effective. I think we are all wondering how Justin will do when there is tight coverage on the WRs as most of his throws seem to be to open receivers (can't blame him). Also, we don't have Parris-like speedsters this year who made a living off the crossing routes last year, so curious to see what passing concepts we will use to abuse the kitties and the skunkweasels.

Comment 11 Nov 2019

We won't fully know the answer to the defensive woes we had and whose fault it really was, but let the speculations swirl if it helps pass the time of day (no pun intended). It's fair to say that he may not be having an immediate impact to get OU defense to where he might like, but he is also learning the BIG12 where passing schemes are more complex than wherever he has been thus far, so it is a learning curve for him, too. That said, I believe his defenses at Washington St were known for turnovers than they were for being suffocating.

Oddly, the odds of JF winning the Heisman this year or next is low because he may be sitting after the first half of all the games next year, too, which makes you think that he won't have opportunities to put up the numbers needed even though everyone knows how lethal he truly is ... Good problems to have

I don't disagree except for the best competition part. He hasn't played us.

ISWYDT Perhaps a meteoric event will occur this weekend the likes of which will see a lot of lava filled hot seats on both programs
Comment 11 Nov 2019
I hope 70% of our plays against Rutgers will be decoys to keep PSU and TTUN in the dark and then unleash plays that make them wonder which NFL team they just got hit by. That Save the Crew story was a good one. What a heroic effort for all who showed what caring can do. That and I'm glad there was an actual Art Modell law passed in Ohio. That scumbag... alright, better go mow the lawn before I get more worked up.

Let's say Oregon wins out as does Bama, but Bama ekes it out against Auburn on a crazy play ... Who gets in? I have to think that Conference Championships have to matter over the quality of a loss. No way you can keep Oregon out in that scenario without the whole country thinking the committee is a sham.

I appreciated Kyle's work for 11W, and happy for him that he got a job at The Blade, but he needs some work when he gets interviewed on BTN Radio Drive Thru - Dan Hope did a better job of answering questions insightfully. Whenever Kyle gets on the phone, I cringe.
