The 2013 version of The Game should be #9 on this list. No way in hell Devin freakin’ Gardner should throw for 451 yards against Ohio State, period.
If they stay healthy. These DTs have tremendous potential going into 2020, but the DT group does not have as much depth as they had in 2019.
That’s what I finally concluded after reading that every single player on Ohio State’s roster was always rising, even 4th string guys we knew weren’t ever going to see the field.
Excellent list. My one quibble, though, is that great moments don't necessarily make great games. For example, the 2012 Purdue game was terrible for 59 minutes, but then was rescued by one thrilling minute of regulation followed by OT (Holy Buckeye in 2002 was also terrible for about 59 minutes). The first 60 minutes of the 2014 PSU game was almost as bad. You could argue that 2013 was the worst win against Michigan in the decade (the loss in 2011 was obviously worse).
In contrast, the 2014 MSU game belongs in the Top 10 - maybe around #9 or #10 on the list - largely because it was one of the best Buckeyes performances in the last 10 years. That MSU team was better than about 50% of the opponents listed in the above top 10 games. Yet that game never became a nail biter because the Buckeyes kept making ridiculous plays and kicking Sparty's a--es. To me, great plays versus great teams make the greatest games (hence why the 59-0 demolition over Wisconsin is #2 despite half of America turning that game off at halftime).
The bottom really dropped out on that guy.
It was OSU 69, MSU 0.
Automatically relegated? No. But one hit wonder is my prediction for Coach O. Fun guy to observe, though.
I would agree with the Mixon point, except that Mixon might very well already be past his prime, crazy as that seems. Yes, Burrow is actually a few months older than Mixon, but NFL RBs have very short shelf lives and Mixon already has 693 career rushes in the NFL. Besides, Mixon is a d-bag.
That's a good step for Joe. Now he just needs to announce that Montgomery Inn's (boiled, not barbecued) ribs are grossly overrated. It should be easy for Joe to reach this obvious conclusion since he has spent his last two years in the culinary paradise of New Orleans (btw, aside from all of the scrumptious food, New Orleans is a sh--hole).
Now, Fatpants . . . you know damn well that it takes at least 30 minutes after eating Skyline before you need to race to the bathroom.
Why? Did Middleton not like living in Gradishar's shadow or something?
Titans dream run comes to an end this Sunday. The Chiefs played poorly against Houston and still won by 20 points.
What would it take for the Bungles to trade the #1 draft pick to the Saints? What if the Saints offer Akili Smith, four 3rd round draft choices, and 10 cases of Sazerac?
Okay, I just did the math. It looks like the max possible points would have been 861. Therefore, Not-Ecut would have done very well by scoring 694 points, but not as well as Cujo did with 741 points.
This also suggests that trying to "win" the losers bracket is a better bet than trying to win the winners bracket. I didn't log into the 11W group to get the final results, but I am guessing that Not-Ecut was not in the top 10 of the winners "bracket," but it obviously Ecut did "win" the losers bracket and got the same prize as the 2nd place finisher in the winners bracket.
If it’s all about the LBs, then this team is going to kick a—. And that’s because depth of talent. We don’t know yet which of the top 7-8 guys will blossom, but with this depth of talent, the odds are heavily in their favor that several of them “hit the switch.”
Btw, there was no way the 2019 Silver Bullets could have held opposing run games to 2.6 yards/carry without the LBs already playing at a high level. Yes, the DL was stronger than the LBs, but the LBs held their own.
Next season, the potential is through the roof!
I agree, the LB unit is going to be very nasty next season. Along with the skill set of the DLmen, the Silver Bullets have a good chance of being the toughest rush defense in the country in 2020.
Top 3 offense + #1 rush defense + opportunistic defense = lethal combination! It won’t hurt them all that much if they drop a few notches in pass defense.
I wonder how many points ECUT would have scored if he/she had picked opposite of their "winning" (by losing) picks?
Most overrated announcing crew in cfb. Last two punts, Fowler suggested they were bad punts, only turn out to be awesome punts.
Thanks for the clarification. If the league passed such a rule, then Houston knew the crime and thus has to do the time. Philosophically, it sill doesn’t make sense to me, but it’s the league’s prerogative to pass philosophically inconsistent rules.
Sure, but I suspect the value in having Coombs locked up ASAP and working for Ohio State > the value of a Super Bowl ring.
I don't follow baseball these days. I thought every team is always trying to steal signs? Didn't the old baseball adage used to be, " if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying"?
Good for them, but Oregon's defense next season will only be able to do so much on their own. Their offense - which wasn't exactly a powerhouse this year - figures to really struggle next season, when they lose their QB and almost their entire OL. Actually, their OL was the best unit on offense.
No matter how good their defense is next season, they ain't holding the Buckeyes' offense under 30 pts. And, meanwhile, they won't move the ball against the Silver Bullets.
Moral of the story = Go Chiefs!
How about the folks who bet Houston +10 in this game? They still have a chance to cover, but what a change fo fortune!
Or Ohio State v. ILL 1984.
