Best of luck, young buck, wherever your pursuits take you. If you do end up in Dayton, give me a shout. First round is on the Navy.
Coach Copper was a better football coach than Coach Bruce.
Hard to take anything in this comment seriously with all the hyperbole.
The interesting part is that none of those games were close. I don't think he was being yanked for performance. The only nail-biter in that stretch was Indiana (I was there), and Jones played the entire game.
And get your picture taken while wearing it next to the 1970 FWAA National Championship trophy. Be sure to hold up your hand with the index finger extended. #1
Show yourself, Serial Downvoter. Don't hide behind your computer. You've DV'd every pro-Herbstreit comment in this thread, including this outstanding photo.
Imagine if Desmond Howard had to call a michigan game.
I would stop watching college football forever if I was subjected to that.
What's the payoff in hating him and wanting him to fail? Why does there need to be a payoff?
it's amazing how quickly Cardale was pulled that year.
You mean waiting until the eighth game of a 12 game season to pull him? That "quickly"? He started the first seven games in 2015.
The issue I have is that none of the polls or rating systems were ever officially sanctioned by the NCAA, and they all used different methods and criteria. To name any team "National Champion", IMHO, there should be some consensus in that statement. Based on the sheer number of "NC" awarding institutions, there have been as many as five so-called National Champions in a single season. That makes some CFB NCs only slightly more legitimate than a Heavy Weight Boxing World Champion title.
Do we recognize USC's NC from 2002 via the Dunkel System, Matthews Grid Ratings or Sagarin Ratings? It's listed in the NCAA's official book of records.
tOSU has two National Championships from the 2006 season, via the DeVold System and the Rothman(FACT) system (BTW - Mr. Rothman authored the BCS System). Why aren't we claiming those if they're listed in the NCAA's official record book?
For that matter, why isn't tOSU claiming its NCs from 1933, 1944, 1969, 1973, 1974, 1975 and 1998? They were all awarded by legitimate, recognized rating systems of their eras.
As others have said, my issue is not with tOSU fans claiming eight. It's the fans who refuse to acknowledge UCLA's claim to the FWAA and UP titles in '54 giving them more of a consensus than the Buckeyes' AP title. It's when those same fans deride 'Bama for claiming 17 NCs. Or when fans bash UM for only having "half a title" from 1997 (FWIW - UM won the AP, FWAA and NFF trophies that season and Nebraska only won the USAT/ESPN trophy. If anything, the Wolverines can claim at least 75% of the title.)
If fans want to claim eight NCs, great. Claim eight. But at least be consistent and recognize that those eight open the door for other team's to claim legitimate NCs as well.

Did you happen to catch the replay of the women's Team Sprint Freestyle Cross-country Skiing? That was the most excited I've heard a Winter Olympics announcer ever get.
The Triple Deke for the win!
As someone who literally "stood" a four-hour watch on the bridge of an aircraft carrier, 1-2 times a day for six months, I can attest that standing all day is hard on the knees and feet. Better have some really comfortable shoes.
As my grandma used to say, "All things in moderation."
IINM, there's a junior at St. Francis DeSales (Columbus), who's a FOGOGO ( I made that up - he takes the face off, gets possession, runs off, swaps sticks and comes back on to score) that's committed to tOSU. He lit up our HS team in the state tournament last year.
Good stats. Jack. I was going off memory, which serves me less well every season. Still, you're talking only the top third hitting 50% in the 20-25 yard range. When you add the 25+ yard attempts in, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see it drop to 40% for the upper quartile of QBs.
Good stuff, 29. Very excited about the future of tOSU lacrosse. I love what Coach Meyers is doing, bringing a mix of Mid-Atlantic and Canadian talent, while keeping homegrown talent in-state.
His overhand shot looks well-developed. Love the way he looks comfortable shooting with both hands.
I think Coach Meyers has made his money in developing players who the lacrosse blue bloods passed on. He's also dipped into the Canadian lacrosse market to find some gems for the Buckeyes. He may not be getting a Top5 recruiting class every year, but what he's done with the players he gets is amazing.
DJ, I loved this line today:
you can only succeed if you eat, breathe, and sleep the game.
Reminded me of a great speech someone shared with me about success. It's worth a listen if you've got 15 minutes.
I agree with you in principle, PhillyNut, but in reality even the best downfield passers are only completing 40% of those 20+ yard throws. So, theoretically they still end up in those 3rd and short positions about 60% of the time.
TBF - about as many OSU does. Seriously. Check the record books.
For a second I thought he was talking about the Browns.
