If I lived in Ohio and was a taxpayer, or a state legislator, I would think it would make a lot of sense for some of the cupcake schools in state to get a payday vs an out of state cupcake.
Has OSU petitioned/asked the NCAA for the wins back? It doesn't seem to be any rationale for giving them back to PSU but not OSU. Obviously their crime was worse, and I don't see that they have behaved better since the penalties were given to both schools.
I'll agree since I'm not part of the Cavs fanbase. I think they should trade him to the Wizards, for Daniel Ochefu. To help the Wizards stay under the cap Lebron should decide to play for the minimum. If we are going to entertain batshit crazy ideas that drive my Cleveland relatives psycho, the ideas should at least benefit the team I support. How about a historical thread on how the Browns should have traded Otto Graham or Jim Brown to the Redskins?
Lebron has been moving up, but I still have Magic and MJ over him for best player I saw. Still not sure who I would take between those two. Russell, Wilt, Oscar, Jerry were basically before my time, at least their peak. Larry, Kobe, Kareem, and Shaq were probably the closest out of the rest I saw.
1. 69 to TTUN. As a little kid, first time I learned OSU could actually lose. Worse than figuring out Santa Claus ain't real
2. 71 to Stanford. How could they not finish up against the surfer nerd boys?
3. 2007 FL. After winning two 1 vs 2 games, I figured OSU was battle tested. I thought losing was possible, but not getting blown out.
4.1998 MSU. Worst game not for a title. Maybe second best OSU team I saw to not win a title (69 would be best)
5. To depressed at this point to continue. Time to sleep.
That really is insane. So I guess this makes MN everyone's second team to root for to win it. Man, that would be funny
Too lazy to check, but didn't almost the whole class redshirt? Partly because of the sick talent level of the returning players that first year. Well hopefully a bunch of them make their mark this year and next.
Heck he outperformed everyone in the country. He was national offensive player of the week.
Its still early. If the OSU offense really hums next year with the coaching changes, that may help change his mind. Getting shut out by Clemson could not have helped.
I would have loved to have tried it, but graduated HS in 1981 in Montgomery County MD and our schools weren't playing it then. Great job by OSU today, never had really thought about them for lacrosse.
When out its pretty much craft beer and a few imports. At home, almost all home brew. I can go 2-3 years without an American mass market beer, then I have part of one and regret it. I think last time I had two was party for a buddy's wedding number 2 about 18 years ago, still regretting it. Although I don't worry about beer glass styles when out, I do have a bunch at home (just spent about $40 on 4 different Belgian beer style glasses because eventually you break enough of them) but also a shitload of mugs and pint glasses. Although I enjoy it, I wouldn't give anyone shit for not giving a crap. On the other hand, everytime I go on a trip I check out brewpub and beer bar locations before leaving. ps, a good website if you want to spend a lot on beer glasses https://globalbeer.3dcartstores.com/Glasses_c_36.html
Agreed. As a Washington fan, they are imploding, again. Fire Snyder.
So coaches that have won 9 championships and the hottest up and coming coach wanted him? I'll stop thinking about the 3 star ranking.
Excited to see what Wilson can do with OSU talent compared to IU. Just looking at 247 composite team rankings, IU is 54 with 0 five stars, 2 four stars, and 68 3 stars. OSU is 4 with 2 five stars, 56 four stars, and 24 three stars. Plus the insane recruiting class coming in. Can't wait to see OSU average over 50 ppg.
The blowout could hurt national perception if it is part of a trend, like blowout lose to UF, then lose next year to LSU, then get blown out by USC. The LSU loss wasn't bad really, young overachieving team makes championship, but going along with the other 2 losses it created a bad national perception. Even so, OSU finished top 5 the next two years but was not getting any benefit of the doubt until 2 years ago winning the Natty.
Since OSU wore the 1916 unis this year, can they break the 1916 record next year on someone and score 129 points? That might help me recover from this weekend.
On basketball, guys work out more like pretty much every other sport (you can notice the difference when you watch ESPN classic) but in hoops the fundamentals are worse since top players don't stick around enough in college.
In football I can remember Sam Huff saying he didn't work out until he got to the NFL. If you go back to back to the 60's, maybe 70's, guys worked in the off season at normal jobs and didn't have the time to work out as much. I have the last 4 OSU NC bowl wins on BD and DVD, and watching the 1969 Rose Bowl and the 2003 Fiesta Bowl its amazing how much stronger the players looked. I would think some of the top HS programs now have better weight rooms than NFL teams in the 70's.
As a longtime MD fan as well as OSU, I have been real surprised the job Dabo had done for Clemson. I remember pre-FSU when MD and Clemson spent a lot of time fighting it out for the ACC title back, particularly back in the 80's. The only way I can see MD making the playoffs is if Under Armor bought the team tickets.
Was his statement wrong, yes. Stupid, no. Stupid is talking trash about the team you are going to play and giving them bulletin board material, like saying the OSU defense is basic.
As a Washington fan, thanks Zeke. We needed Detroit to lose.
I won't be in Phoenix for the game, but I go there almost every year for a conf at the convention center.
Here are my eight favorite places in Phoenix (food, beer, music), last 7 all walkable from Convention Center downtown, last 6 are in the art district which is a cool area.

Well if they get hit with a one year bowl ban shouldn't hurt, but its not like Ash can take a lot of scholarship reductions. Always feels bad when new coach takes hit for violations under old coach.
Also sober. I can barely remember HS graduation, undergrad I was sober, grad I didn't go.
Someone mentioned in this thread about Collier maybe going to UC. I had wondered if he might try Texas since he would be most familiar with the offense, although they did start a Freshman this year.
Anyone know why he only got a year of probation? I was wondering if most people in OK would have gotten jail time for that (if its a first offense), or if it looks like he only got off lightly because of football. Besides her civil suit against him, does anyone know if she has any Title 9 grounds against OU for letting him play? Also, anyone think the NFL may suspend him when he comes out?
