Wonder if he can play safety.
I like the typo. ;)
My question is how many wins claimed by TTUN were wins per the London Football Association rules...
Haha. Suck it, Florida!
Don't sleep on Kirk Ferentz. They named the trophy after him.
Maryland Offensive MVP is the Officiating Staff.
MD Offensive yards: 139
OSU Penalty Yards: 141
Actually honorable. It would have been petty to kick a FG. MD just couldn’t stop them on a simple run.
Indeed. I wouldn't mind him sacking Hoak or Chugunov (gently) a time or two in the 4th quarter of a 52-7 blowout to pad his resume.
I doubt the LB coach and defensive coordinators could have figured that out.
2018 linebackers = pile of bat guano.
2019 linebackers (the same folks) = lights out.
I would love to see Darrion Daniels vs Dawand Jones in a game.
It would be geographic.
I think they would have had better results if they started with Chase Young and then used the following "analytical analog method" for the rest of the top 50.
EPA seems like a bit of a silly stat, because it just seems to take the longest scoring plays made when there is a long down or distance.
More fascinating would be "WPA" (win probability added), that is, how much more likely a win becomes after the play is made, taking into account the situation, home-field and quality of opponent. I think the Olave catch against Wisky and the Fields TD against Wisky (after they made it a 3-point game) would top that out, as well as the Victor catch against MSU. For example from last year, Chase Young tackling MIles Sanders on 4th-and-5 on the final PSU drive would be a huge WPA play.
EDIT: Did a bit of research and found this from last year. The Young TFL against PSU had a 33% WPA, but the Haskins to Hill TD pass caused a whopping 133% swing, from -64% to +69%.
I dislike Harbaugh about this much:
I on the other hand DV'd him on purpose (kidding). When you upvoted him, it knocked out the DV.
Might as well get this out of the way in advance:
- Buckeyes pay their players and the parents of players.
- Ohio State has lower academic standards.
- Ohio State hires tutors to take classes for football players.
- Ryan Day does human sacrifice before each game.
- Refs have been paid off by the Council on Foreign Relations who are trying to usher in a a New World Order.
- Aliens. (As in Chase Young is not really a human being but a highly evolved, specialized killing machine from outer space--look at the hair.)
- Jimmy Hoffa's body is buried under the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
Very funny. I went around that site a bit just out of curiosity and found it to be fairly rational. Mostly the sorts of reactions you’d have if your team lost a big game. No whining about “refs stole it” or “cheating” or “paying players” or “academic standards”. Wonder which team’s fans behave that way...?
Apparently it was some sort of improvised pyrotechnic device that turned into an improvised explosive device. Gunpowder + metal tube + something to pack the powder down = pipe bomb.
Decoldest? Master Teague III is still my favorite name in college football.
7.2 yards per rush from J.K. also don't hurt. That's a half-decent Yards Per Attempt for a passer.
Also more blowouts where backups are in or the running game is chewing clock.
Did you see the game on Saturday?
Was one of them the one by Taylor that led to an Illinois score late in the game?
As for teaching ball security, I don’t think all the drills in the world would have helped prevent the two strip-sacks by Young.
Mildly surprised Kirk Ferentz didn’t win this.
Aliens. Must. Be. Aliens.
The defense last year was basically Oklahoma's defense. Now Oklahoma's defense is what our defense was last year. Hmmm....
I wonder what Arnette thought about Quiintez Cephus chirping at him after the 35-yard catch in the fourth quarter (with his team down 31-7), followed immediately by Young's strip-sack.
