I was working, I saw the score, jaw dropped. Watching the replay, the crowd was jazzed early and often. Sounded like NWA in game 4 against Tampa Bay last year. Both teams' freshmen got a big welcome to the big time, that's for sure.
The moment when you realize the football team was supposed to be a year away and the basketball team is still upgrading
Day's naming Wisconsin players like he's Kirk Herbstreit. I'm used to coaches saying things like "They've got some big and nimble guys on the interior line, they don't let you run the ball." He's straight up naming the players you know he was watching on film. Makes me excited to see how he attacks some of these hosses in his game plan.
Ryan Day game plans a handful of plays to use each week. I think he's been holding on to those plays until the opposing defense has spent a few possessions adjusting to what Dobbins and Fields do. It seems once the coaches see what a defense is doing (and if it's what they expected from the film room), they pull out some bootleg fake-RPO to Bin Victor or Fields dips his shoulder on a fake draw and opens the entire secondary, and its feast time.
Imagine coming out with a finely tuned game plan against this offense, and executing. You've held a fearsome foe to just a TD, and you feel you can build on this, keep it close for a while, and maybe pull out something stu- nevermind, Ryan Day adjusted and now you're down by 30.
I knew I heard Holst's "Jupiter"! Don't be fooled, this was all written in advance, and only executed by precision teenagers with brass horns!
ET's declared prize share is $1. The team gets a cut of the ticket sales for winning their regional, maybe you're seeing that, but I can't find anywhere that says Turner is getting a cut of the prize pool beyond the stake he put in, plus the bonus. Only ESPN says $140k.
With the way Mike Thomas is coming on, DeVier Posey's career, and Jalin Marshall scoring the AAF's first TD, we could potentially have the best WRs in three separate leagues. What elite WR recruit wouldn't want to potentially win a Grey Cup MVP or score the game winner in the Arena Bowl? Oh, yeah, or make Taj Mahal-level quantities of cash in the NFL.
If you're sexualizing swagger this much, I bet you feel really weird watching Baker Mayfield give interviews.
Actually, that's not weird at all.
The restuarant has been running since the 30s, that's kind of the thing. The reason it seems so traditional is because Lawry's made it that way. This is the kind of take that calls Big Ten jerseys boring because they look like old NFL jerseys.
Yep. They call "undeclared" exploration or exploring at OSU. You have to declare by the end of your second year IIRC.
One of the worst things to ever happen to college football was ESPN's analysis, because we're forced every day to believe that there's a best team. I do remember growing up and wanting to beat Michigan, to win our games, and to go to the elusive Rose Bowl. I remember how huge the Rose Bowl was, at 10 years old. I also remember watching the Sugar Bowl hoping against hope that a favorable outcome would give Ohio State a national championship.
But the fact remains that even that senseless hoping and the system of mythical and split championships is more compelling than watching Forrest Gump run headfirst into Adam Sandler's Waterboy character for 3 hours. At least under the old system when we saw a rematch it was between the LSU/Oregon variety, not the LSU/Alabama type.
Well at least we know the Heisman Trophy will go to probably the best player in the nation (Andrew Luck) or the best RB in the nation (Trent Richardson).
Oh. Wait. Nevermind, it's projected to go to Robert Griffin. Well then, good job every award committee ever except for the Davey O'Brien. You managed to prove why the Heisman is respected and you are not.
