As the transfer portal becomes a more and more legitimate option for young people to showcase and grow in other environments (Which I am all for student-athletes exhausting all their resources as they see fit) is there a risk that this depth could disappear to the transfer portal really quickly?
I'm old and definitely out of touch... can someone explain what Big Cap means? I'll have to try to get hip with the times.... is that still a thing?
This is one of the best comments I have ever read on this site... no joke. I quite literally lol'd while reading.
You're 100% correct. They want to leave the Big 10 because the conference keeps screwing them (Both financially and with schedules????).
Uh oh.... the plot thickens. A Michigan Man points out that they do not ACTUALLY have the high ground!!! I'm sure the responses will be reasonable and not at all tin-foil hat at all.
I think Tressel would disagree with some of the answers here...
That Hamby'd it up line was amazing. I mean, it still hurts a bit... but accurate description.
I went to the game a few years ago and we stumbled upon a really cool tailgate event at St George Greek Orthodox Church. You can pay to park there (I think it was $30), but right down the street from the church we found a homeowner offering cheaper parking in his lawn. We walked down to the church. They had food (Burgers, Dogs, etc...) for a really good price. There was a nice mix of Rutgers fans and Buckeyes fans. They were all very kind and welcoming. Traditional tailgate games were there as well. I would definitely hit it up again if I was going this year. They don't sell beer at the church, but there were definitely plenty of people partaking, so bring your own supply.
Although I agree with your point... speaking of injuries to key players should be like Voldemort. We should not speak his name.
My favorite comment is by far "Oh good we're into the conspiracy theory part of the season". A perfect summary of the status of their program and most of the fan base.
I agree... as far as an athlete goes... Murray takes it. However, we are talking about QB. Elite QB is shifty, but not speedy runners. Desmond started to make that point by saying Accuracy and decision making was the most important... but didn't realize that Haskins is better in those areas. That was more what I was saying. For all those extra games played, the passing stats are not all that different. Lets do this blind... don't cheat!
QB 1 = 373/533 Passes for 70 % Completion. 54/9 TD to INT ratio.
QB 2 = 350/519 Passes for 67.4 % Completion. 50/14 TD to INT ratio.
Granted... this is ignoring the rushing stats, but as a pure passer it should be telling.
He literally contradicts himself in the video and then just says, "Wellllll, coordinators will figure out how to get after him..." So stupid.
I mean... Bama had a stronger out of conference schedule than the Buckeyes this year... partially that is not their fault because TCU ended up completely collapsing... but still. Interesting enough, 4 Big 10 Teams had Non-Conference rankings sub 90. The highest was Purdue.
The SEC has 7 schools that are ranked sub 90. That CS Saturday definitely drags them down.
UCF actually has a higher OC ranking than both OSU and Bama.
Thanks for cleaning up the spacing. Don't know how why it spazzed out. And yes, Draymond still a tool.
