Some motivation for Jalen Hurts here. I bet he would love to go out knowing he knocked out the SEC and number 1 team. I also believe the committee doesn't think LSU can beat Clemson and if they both win it sets up LSU vs OSU for the championship which is the game everyone wants to see.
Not a chance. The QB is Ryan Day's specialty and he knows what he wants and will elevate them to a new level. I truly believe Day is the sole reason Haskins had the season he had. Urban is a legend, but I don't believe he was as good at evaluating and honing NFL caliber QBs as Day is and I think we will see the Haskins type trend continue.
If Martell says he's no good, that's even more reason to go get him.
Seems like someone who’s head got a little too big because of who his grandfather was. Too bad he didn’t pay more attention to who his grandfather was. Earl would be sorely disappointed today.
Texas is the top as far as talent and is my favorite place to see recruits come from second only to in state talent. No one has bigger Friday night lights than Texas and Ohio...might throw Florida in there too.
who the staff wanted and now the staff doesn't think is good enough to play
With all due respect I think you are making an assumption here. The only reason Haskins got a shot is because Burrow was hurt. He is in no way the automatic starter next year. Also, Burrow was a 4 star from Ohio so I think it would be a good thing if Baldwin reminds you of him. Baldwin's tape is impressive and we haven't even seen what Burrow can do yet. Keep in mind this is the rival school to the one Baker Mayfield came from so you can see the talent coming from there. As much as I can't stand Mayfield himself, there is no arguing with someone who is walk-on putting up the numbers to win the Heisman.
I know it was discussed elsewhere on the forums, bu what about Eyabi Anoma? I know they say he's a lock for Bama, but it seems like there's always a shocker and with his recent tweets I'm going say he could be it this cycle with almost instant playing opportunity.
Hell as talented as that family is I'd take a Bosa sister!
My #2 wish is to see Baker Mayfield broken by
TCU OSU in the playoffs and whimpering. Fixed It!
I say CFP committee surprises everyone and announces it's been expanded to eight teams on Sunday!
Let's hope the offense keeps up the momentum as well. This takes a lot of pressure off of the defense and keeps them off the field and fresh.
Let's go wreck Penn state! Like UFM says it's all about the grind.
For some reason I just don't feel bad...
I'd also agree that I was baffled the call was confirmed by video replay and I'd also say I couldn't believe how quickly they came back and stated the call was confirmed by video replay. It was almost quick enough to make me think they didn't even watch the video. Either way there is no sense in UFM bashing the refs or getting upset. There is no way to take back the punishment or give Ward a game back so we may as well move on and keep playing just as hard as he was when he made that play. Who knows, maybe he'll have two extra games after the Big Ten Championship to make up for lost time!

Keep in mind they pulled many of the starters after the second quarter. The game would have been managed much differently if they were worried about pounding them by a larger margin. The drop in the AP doesn't mean anything anyway. If we beat PSU and _ichigan we'll go to the Big Ten championship and have a shot at the playoffs. Lose to either of those two teams and the playoffs is out and possibly the Big Ten championship.
I think we may have had someone like this on the team before. Cardale Jones anyone? I realize Cardale was on the team and this is just a high school kid who is going to make mistakes at 18 years old, but as long as he doesn't make any more mistakes like this and shows up ready to work with a good attitude in Cbus he may end up maturing into a great recruit like Cardale.
I'm starting to think the F in Urban F Meyer stands for field goal.
I had a lot of respect for Tom Herman, but that just went out the window after reading his comments and blaming his players. As someone already mentioned he can't have it both ways. Either he worked his magic in Houston and failed in Texas, or Houston's Cinderella season had nothing to do with him and neither did this latest loss in Texas.
I bet Indiana and Legow look just as good against UTEP.
I mean seriously!? Can it be game day already!? It needs to be based on the nit picking going on of one of the most stacked rosters in entire country, with one of the most stacked coaching staffs, led by THE best coach in the country.
I'm not sure I understand all of the frustration here with the ORs and ANDs in the depth chart. Seems like the issue is more than likely too many elite talents to keep them off the field rather than no one is good enough to be a clear cut starter.
Nice to see Antonio Williams getting some kudos from UM after seeing stuff like this about him complaining in the spring.
Ohio Guy this is absolutely the stuff captains, leaders, and champions are made of!
