Seems like UGA is missing a season. They can’t have played that many fewer games than the rest.
One of those two penalties was a late hit on the UC QB, and in my opinion could have been let go.
I was in the OSUMB for the win at Iowa in 1990, and distinctly remember storming the field and playing an impromptu "Hang on Sloopy" while the players were still mingling around. It was a high point of a poor season overall. Summary below from Bucknuts.
Ohio State 27 No. 6 Iowa 26 Ohio State quarterback Greg Frey connected with Bobby Olive in the back of the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown with 0:01 remaining in the game to clinch a 27-26 upset in Iowa City. The pass capped a drive that saw Ohio State take possession at the Iowa 48-yard line with 00:59 on the clock and no timeouts. The unranked Buckeyes trailed by 12 points with 11:00 remaining in the game, but Frey threw three touchdown passes during the span, including two to Olive, who eluded Iowa defensive back Merton Hanks on the game-winning catch. Hanks was also victimized for a touchdown at the end of the first half when a potential interception bounced off him and was snagged by Ohio State receiver Jeff Graham, who raced into the end zone to cut Iowa's lead to 17-14 at intermission. Linebacker Steve Tovar led the Buckeye defense with 14 tackles. The upset victory put Ohio State back in contention for a Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl berth after they opened the conference season 0-1-1.
The last section about refusing to offer ‘incentives’ should have been the first, and most important, section. Makes me proud to be a Buckeye.
One step closer to game day.
The movie was called “Touchback”. By most accounts, it’s bad, but I haven’t seen it. If they were even trying to be honest, the protagonist would be named Muhlenkamp or Mueller instead of Murphy.
Parkway, I presume?
Happy to say I am a Coldwater graduate - from back when we were just a baseball school. I did not think we would make the countdown. I forgot about Harlamert.
Do motorcycles count?
Roll Me Away by Bob Seger. Just saw him in concert a few days ago. Silver Bullet Band is still impressive.
Our HS team of 6’0” country “try-hard”s ran into Toledo Macomber and Jim Jackson in the state tourney. It wasn’t a fair fight, but a pleasure to watch nonetheless due to his amazing talent.
Great to hear how positive he is about the program going forward. Reinforces what we all think about the players and coaches these past two years.
If Marotti sees that top pic he should feel pretty good about his job security.
+1 for the correct prediction. I picked Oregon, too, but just because I hate to watch Badger-ball.
Robbed or not, Joey's comments afterward show him to be a classy guy and for that I'm proud. Lots of quality dudes on this team.
No, it’s different because the ACC is top dog in hoops and they don’t do conference pride.
If you look closely, you can see my nephew in the Bijan Robinson tape......he's a freshman bass drummer in the Salpointe marching band. I'm trying to leverage my close connections to get a commitment from Bijan.
Great Skully, Kevin, but I have one grammar pet peeve I should share. My 18 year old daughter over-uses the word "literally" (as well as "like", "iconic", and maybe a few more) so I'm very sensitive to it. You may be surprised to know it occurs four times in today's text. You should get credit for using it correctly, though I would argue that none of the four are necessary.
I’m curious what you mean by a “typical South Florida recruitment”
Zonabuck, appreciate the link. Cool to see the opener performed for people who clearly haven't heard it before. They sort of took it as a comic novelty. I think it's brilliant writing to be able to pull together the rhymes and cadences he uses all while telling a more-or-less realistic historical biography.
The new defensive brain trust needs to play it’s part, too. We all thought we’d see more of Martell last year after games were in hand, but too often we let weaker teams stay close. That hurt Martell’s development and maybe gave Haskins some stat padding.
Nice interview with Cameron Caffey - smart kid and seems like a really good guy.
I won't argue your thesis here, but will add a note that whether or not someone has taken an AP class doesn't necessarily classify them as a mouth breather. My small town high school didn't even offer AP classes when I attended in the late 80's, but I managed to become a National Merit Scholar anyway.

One good half against Bama shouldn't put them in the playoff, other wise Citadel deserves a shot, too.
That's a mic drop line, there, Navy.
