Orlando Pace and Michael Jordan are the only two OSU offensive linemen to leave after 3 years. Both of them were 3 year starters.
Illinois beat OSU 5 years in a row from 1988-1992 including 3 times in Columbus during that span.
They upset us in 1994, but then had the benefit of playing in Columbus in two down years in 1999 (6-6) and 2001 (7-5).
Everyone remembers 2007 (my first year on campus).
So outside of 1994 (9-4) and 2007 (11-2), the combined records of those Buckeye teams were: 32-24-3
I will bet that Georgia's OOC schedule doesn't stay the same (if it does, good for them):
Georgia's OOC Schedule 2030: Clemson/Ohio State/Georgia Tech
Georgia's OOC Schedule 2031: Oklahoma/at Ohio State/at Georgia Tech
Obviously there will be one cupcake/FCS game each year as well.
All good, I had to read it twice to make sure I knew what I was talking about lol
Just like anything from "reality tv" (aliens, bigfoot, treasure, etc.) it would be all over the news if they did.
Week 1 of the CFP Rankings in 2015:
I laughed way too hard at this. We just need Phyllis and we are all set.
Does Alabama even consider LSU their biggest rival? They do have this thing called the Iron Bowl..
Thanks for posting.
I am trying to hard to do this without trying to figure out who is who.
Why won't my brain stop trying to do it? lol
Appreciate the post.
That said this would be par for the course if true. Such mismanagement.
You don't fire Taggart unless the stuff the AD told the boosters is FOS.
If you fire a guy with 4 games left you have to at least have an idea of who is going to replace him.
The AD is either lying and they are much further along than they let on, or has some extreme faith that a)the boosters will raise buyout money and new coach money quickly and b)One of the big time FA coaches will come to FSU because if neither of those was the case, all of this could be accomplished at season's end.
Its because we didn't have honey fried chicken.
I forgot about this.
Paris Johnson Jr. (EE)
Trey LeRoux (EE)
Grant Toutant (summer enrollee, torn labrum)
I forget if the other 3 are EE/summer enrollees. But other than AE's comments and the stuff about LeRoux's weight, etc. (which appears to have been cleared up since he is an EE) I haven't seen a single thing about another one of our OL.
There was the hazing thing at Toutant's high school, but he wasn't involved.
Is this because they want to see who wins the Minn/PSU game so they can hype up Indiana/PSU or Minn/Iowa depending on which is the better game?
It is still up in the air (for us fans) as fair as I know.
The rule being floated was that you wouldn't be able to count scholarships back towards previous classes like that anymore.
My OCD is freaking out.
Can you edit 2014 FSU and 2016 Alabama? Neither of which was 13-1 going into the playoffs. Thanks!
Now I'm super curious as to which coach caused the rift/which recruit it was.
I would assume it would have had to have happened somewhat recently due to the "a few years ago quote".
Since Urban was here for the last 7, I would assume it happened under Urban.
I don't know anyone who we recruited out of St. Joseph's recently, so I am looking up their past recruited players (who were at least good enough to get an OSU look):
2018: Darryle Simmons WR - V. Tech
2017: D'Andre Swift RB - Georgia
2015: Olamide Zaccheaus ATH - V. Tech
2015: Jon Runyan Jr. OT - Michigan
2012: Skyler Mornhinweg QB - Florida
It obviously could have been someone lesser who started out good as an underclassmen but ended up as a 2/3 star but I didn't look that far.
It also could have been someone who transferred to a different high school as I didn't look at that either.
IIRC he mentioned that a big failure of the model is that it valued the conference championship game/13th data point as compared to an undefeated ND.
Baron's dad is on the staff at Tennessee. Unless there are changes on the staff (Pruitt/his dad), I can't see anyway he doesn't end up in Knoxville.
There were a couple he held the ball too long, but a few def. weren't his fault.
According to Day, a couple times a game OSU runs a play where 8 players stay in and block on a PA and the 2 routes are deep. If they aren't open its almost a guaranteed sack (meaning the defense played a soft coverage, etc.)
It is open MOST of the time. So OSU trades a sack here and there for a more likely massive gain.
Another reason you take Fields over Burrow/Hurts/Tua is that we get Fields next year, while all of those guys will be in the NFL.
Kansas was the only P5 team to finish 12-1 in 2007. They didn't win their conference (3 loss Oklahoma) or division (2 loss Missouri).
Oh ya, I don't think he's coming to OSU either.
But with the way AE posted it, it made it seem that maybe Knighton was having second thought about FSU but Day and Co. are no longer interested.
Sorry if this has been covered, but am I reading this correctly in that the staff doesn't seem interested in Knighton anymore?
Its my understanding that the staff did their due diligence on Harris and then decided not to pursue him.
The only problem is see with that is that many local economies are dependent on a certain number of home games. By eliminating a regular season game you are removing a home game (at least 1 every 2 years).
