Grew up in Cincinnati and thankfully was raised to hate UC and root for OSU. Graduating from OSU sealed the deal. But coming out of high school there were more OSU guys than UC guys that paid any attention to sports. There aren’t many all-out UC football fans - many more for basketball. But as for all fanbases you hear the loudest and dumbest fans.
It would only be excessive if the goal differential didn’t mean something. With it being the first game, who knows if every other team in the group could thump Thailand by 13. The goal is to move pass group stage, and goal differential can prevent that. If they had already clinched and this was the final game, or it was past group stage, then yeah maybe take it a little slower instead of blitzing down the field like the opponent isn’t even there.
But they made a statement to the other teams and to the US heads. The celebrating could’ve been toned down, but that’s it
As soon as seeing the kid’s picture and that he’s from Cincinnati, I would’ve bet money he’s an Elder guy
So what does this mean? Especially in terms of the NCAA being able to keep tabs on their crap.
Seems like a dumb idea. Games were vacated because NCAA. It’s foolish to act like 2010 didn’t happen or mean anything to either the team or fans at the games. It’s almost like saying 2012 should be refunded too since the games didn’t matter either.
Hoping him and Haskins can continue a great combo and do some good things. Have there been any notable college QB/WR duos that continued into the NFL? Off the top of my head I can't think of any
La Salle is doing something right regarding kicking footballs. Chrisman and now this guy
This is great! Lots of hilarious quotes, but you really can’t beat the one about Harbaugh and being clueless. I’m impressed we can beat Cincinnati and Michigan simultaneously.
The class is looking good regardless of ranks, and Day and company are headed in the right direction
A lot of the numbers don't match between your list and paragraphs by the way
Moronic they had to change the team name
That's not even remotely comparable and is completely false. The players were considered to have broken a rule of the game and therefore suspended according to the rule. Doesn't matter if you consider the call or the rule correct or not.
The fact that such terrible calls are being made across all major sports DESPITE lengthy reviews being used in the game is the more important point. Is it easier to 1) make a correct call on 0.5 second play, 2) write clearer rules, AND/OR 3) make a correct call after reviewing it for a few a minutes. Options 2 and 3 (which are much easier to do than 1) should be able to make incorrect initial calls harmless.
Refs aren’t breaking any rules by making a mistake on the field. If they do a poor job, they’re essentially demoted as has been pointed out. If you really cared, you can start tracking who is reffing where and when. Refs get enough shit on gamedays and occasionally are subject to harassment for weeks afterwards
Publicly announcing a ref’s punishment accomplishes nothing besides making people like you happier. Imagine if they say ‘Ref John blew a call, so this week he’s reffing Team X vs Team Z instead of A vs B’
Plus, I’ll click on an article about the suspension of a coach or player, and those suspensions will get public somehow. I’m not going to click on an article about the punishment of an obscure ref.
I agree. Day needs to have the team ready, because Fickell and UC will be going all out. Going to be a tough one, and I can't imagine the crap coming from the UC derelicts I know
2016 Clemson I hung on, but 2017 Iowa I turned it off... followed by 2018 Purdue.
2017 Penn State had such a different feel than any of the true beatdowns. It felt like we were playing well and gave a damn. Those other three were just disasters from the beginning
Last few seasons of Beilein were much more successful than that of Matta. Beilein’s last players are leaving for the draft, Matta’s last class just straight up walked away
Ben Roethlisberger, for many reasons
How has it been poorly run? Two years ago there was stuff with the CEO, but I haven’t heard anything since. Obviously has a CEO and is easily the top in Columbus, and is well regarded in quite a few fields not including the James. It amazes me that people whine about a university president over a band investigation and football investigation, with the current direction of the school both athletically and academically.
Start to finish: Matta
Second half of tenure: Beilein
The last four years of Matta somewhat hides just how good he was the first 9.
Pat Fitzgerald. Hope he never beats us, but seems like a good guy and loves coaching for his school
Mike Leach and Gus Malzahn are the other two in my mind
There are no more cans of worms to be opened regarding the portal transfer world
So how much does Oklahoma owe Georgia when they cancel that 2031 game?
The Florida championship game is close, but damn 2015 MSU sucked. A team that should've been lightyears better than any college team and we play in shitty weather, forget about Zeke, lose to a backup QB with a last second field goal, and lose to the one team that would eliminate us from the B1G title and playoff spot. Still unbelievable how the coaches screwed up that game/year. I don't think the three blow outs happen to Clemson/Iowa/Purdue if we are in the 2015 playoffs with the sort of recruiting boost and (what should've been) competent coaching
Go to the G-league or whatever if you want to be paid instead of going to college for free and playing basketball
