I just can't get past the idea that TTUN has to replace 10 starters on Defense. I know they will have talent, but 10 new starters? They are going to have some bumps along the way next year, so I don't give them much of a chance to win the B1G.
Typically, people who are accused of this act only have 2 possible defenses. 1) Say it was consensual, or 2) deny any sexual act occurred at all. The problem with the second option is that if you say "nothing happened", but we find out that something DID happen, then we have to assume it was rape.
Theoretically, if the assault happened and the rape kit was administered, they would be able to find evidence of the attack. So it is interesting to me that Conley's friends have gone on record to say "no sexual contact happened, she was just made she got kicked out." If they find evidence, then it was surely a rape. The problem is that rape kits go "unchecked" in America all the time. There are literally thousands and thousands of rape kits that have never even been processed. Sounds super crazy but its totally true. So we might never find out what happened.
Bottom line, if she was not assaulted, I find it hard to believe she would put herself through a rape kit procedure. They are gruesome. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens. However, there is always so much more to these stories than what we see, or what can even be proven.
Anyone else wonder why he waiting until the very end of the day to address the rumors? If the rumors were 100% false, wouldnt you want to address that immediatly, rather than letting them swir for HOURS. My guess is that the rumors were cimpletely true, and he needed time to decide...then he blamed everyone else for it.
There is going to be debate of OSU vs the B1G winner. But its just the talking heads. The reality is that the committee has actually been pretty consistant with their rankings in the past. They rank the best 2 teams #1 and 2, and the two most deserving teams #3 and 4. So its both the "best" AND the "Most deserving."
OSU is #2, and that wont change. We are in an entirely different catigory than the B1G winner. They will be compared with clemson and washington. We will be compared with Alabama.
Personallu, I hope clemson loses so we get washington in the first round. That would be great.
My take away from the game:
OSU will advance to the playoffs while Harbaugh will be fined and peppers will be suspended.
I love the destruction we left in our wake
He also went 12-0 at Utah in 2004. So yeah, it must be undefeated championship season
I know its too early to start talking about next year...but think of this dream scenario:
Baker Mayfield becomes the next Johnny Manziel, and leaves for the NFL Draft (where he obviously becomes a UDFA). That means Austin Kendall is starting next year when the sooners visit The Shoe.
My brother goes to Tulsa, lol. He is well aware of the beat down that is about to happen.
That look you get when you don't kick it out of Bounds.
We should kick out Rutgers, and add Houston.
I would literally rather lose all 13 games this year, than win with a guy like Dunn on my team. Zero tolerance. Part of that reasoning is my own personal experience with this kind of stuff, and part of that reasoning is an understanding that football is just a game. But violence is life. We cant allow guys to go around creating traumatic memories in people that could last an entire lifetime.
So glad that Urb took has taken a stand. Seriously.
They should have used a "grey box" for Andrew
I live in New Hampshire, about an hour north of Boston. not surprised they are last on the list. Its like riding a horse through a stampede...
worchester MA is just as bad...thats why they are 199th, lol.
Anytime we see a car with MA plates, we know we are about to get cut off. We call them Mass-holes.
He will be suspended for 2 games and be back for our match-up.
Urban Meyer > Bob Stoops
should be close, but I expect a victory
So is Torrence Gibson staying at WR? I though he moved to WR last year, but was intending to move back to QB when QB-geddon was done.
In defense of ESPN, they don't change their rankings on a daily basis. Unlike the rest of the recruiting websites, they dont use "point values" to determine their rankings. They have to get all their "experts" together to determine if changes need to be made. So itll take a bit longer for these changes to effect the ESPN rankings.
Thats why Eric said "Those numbers are likely to change very soon."
I don't think a 2 loss stanford team makes it in. Especially sense there are a host of really good 1 loss teams. Maybe if they beat USC 59-0...but I doubt it.
I think we will jump whoever loses, and we will not be jumped by anyone. So if either Clemson or Bama loses, we are in.
Yeah...hes a great coach...who has never won a championship at any level.
Before the game, Meyer was like "its all about preparation." I wonder how much time it took for offense to prepare for Barrett's runs up thr middle?
"Okay guys...this week the game plan is to run the QB up the middle everytime" How long did it take me to type that? Thats how long it looked like we prepared for. Just saying.
I guess this is a case of the Employer giving the Employee a two week notice. How nice of them.
I wish I could give you two stickers for this!
Awww, thats cute that jay harbough (who BTW?) thinks he knows more about recruiting/coaching than 3 time national champion UFM.
Sounds like jay should be saying something like "dayum...thats good stuff. I should try it! I JUST GOT SCHOOLED URBAN AND I LOVED IT!"
What? Florida didnt raise to #3? Im shocked!
