There are countless people protesting wearing masks/social distancing. You think they are practicing those measures? They aren't the at-risk people I would worry about - it's the people who encounter them subsequently that are the concern.
Agree on Mack and Victor. I think Austin will do the little things on special teams that make the difference for a roster spot.
Take a look at this draft class. 2020 was insanely deep for receivers. There were 6 WRs taken in the first round, another 7 taken in the 2nd. 37 total picks were WR. Last year those numbers were 2, 7 and 26. There were as many WRs taken in 2 rounds of this draft as were picked through 4 rounds in 2020.
Woody won 5 national titles.
Those brave road warriors are Florida (@FSU - in state), Tennessee (@Oklahoma), Mizzou (@BYU), South Carolina (@Clemson - in state), Vandy (@Kansas State), Mississippi State (@NC State), Kentucky (@Louisville - in state), and Arkansas (@Notre Dame). Not exactly the cream of the conference playing those tough road games and 3 of them are in state matchups.
I was a student at Ohio State when Earle was fired, I'm quite aware of the how the fans viewed him.
Cooper was so shocked, his next 4 teams after his 4-6-1 innaugural season couldn't match the record that got Earle fired.
With all this bashing of Earle and reverance of Cooper returning Ohio State to national prominence, hard to believe Coop had 8 seasons at Ohio State worse than 9-3.
Ohio State holds the series lead vs. ND with the only Irish wins coming in a time period when more than half of American homes lacked indoor plumbing. It has been more than 30 years since ND has won a national title, no one considers them "America's team".
Judging from your short posting history, one might get the sense you're not what you present yourself to be, Mr. EGeorge.
Especially on fumbles.
LSU's defense is trash.
Hell yeah. I told my wife the same thing.
Well Dobbins' 2 dropped TDs and Olave breaking off his route certainly aren't successes I would attribute to the Clemson defense.
When you have two evenly matched teams like this game supposedly had, then it's reasonable to think you are going to be in a position where a call like this could be the difference.
You missed the 80 Rose Bowl. That one stings a lot still.
Only ESPN's own Dave Cutaia, the dude who got suspended by the PAC-10 for his crew's horrendous hosing of Oklahoma in Eugene.
Replay review, the JoePa gift that keeps on giving.
I know you're putting it in comparison to 1st round numbers but 2nd round picks are getting 4 year contracts in the $7MM range with $1MM+ signing bonus. To a college kid making nothing that's a lot. Heck, it's a lot to me.
Yeah, he went into his "Shaun Wade isn't in the game anymore" gear.
It was 14-7 at that point and it would have resulted in a 3rd dkwn conversion rather than a punt.
So you have a path (due to your blue blood reputation, large fan base, the Big10's perceived or real strength, whatever) that is not open to Clemson
Um, you realize Ohio State was left out of the previous 2 playoffs, right?
Jordan's scoop and score wasn't misinterpreted, it was reofficiated.
They did execute, including Jeff Okudah and Jordan Fuller.
Did Clemson execute? They had:
- Less passing yards
- Less rushing yards
- Less total yards
- Less offensive plays
- Less time of possession
- A lower passing completion percentage
- A lower 3rd down conversion percentage
- No 4th down conversions
The only advantages they had were turnovers (which they would not have had if the scoop and score rightfully stood) and penalty yards. Oh, and favorable replay calls, including initiating a review after a play was being run that was going to result in a TD. They had advantages in that too.
