SP+ made me feel worse. It basically says, if the entire season was played/simulated, and every team played every other team, on a glorious 129 week, two and half year run Ohio State would win the championship, ... In a vacuum, without the influence of ESPN/sports media politics, a probably corrupt playoff committee, and wayyy to much power given to a shitty SEC replay official.
The NCAA is like the Goblin King from the Labyrinth.
Speak the words “you have no power over me” and it becomes true.
Please start a petition or a twitter movement or something!
This is the main thing I dislike about Gene Smith’s tenure here, there are plenty of other things that bothered me, but this is the only one I still feel, and can not let go of. It crashes back into my brain whenever programs are being compared for all time greatness.
The winning percentage for 2010 was 0.9230. We are beating Michigan in all time winning percentage by more than we are getting credit for, and actually ahead of Boise State (a regional power in a weak region of the country)
How many all time wins does OSU have? Are the websites updated? Do the “12!!” wins from 2010 count in the total, or do I need to do math?
NCAA rules are just suggestions. Follow the rules if you want, sure, that would be nice. Break them if you want, fine.
Just don’t admit to the NCAA that you didn’t follow the suggestions because then they’ll maybe punish you or not. Probably not if your in the south.
I don’t enjoy cigars, but would happily keep one burning at all time of it would rid the airwaves of Heather Dimwhitt.
Gene Smith did a bad thing on July 8, 2011.
I think a movement needs to begin! I’m not a Twitter person but it seems to be the way, so ...
I assumed the entire post was meant as sarcasm after that comment.
Right before we end the season with our rivals. The Game is a season in and of it self, so maybe that’s what was meant?
Sarcasm if not obvious
Lol, thanks for being good natured about a little snark!
FWIW I think cigars stink and long term make people’s lips look weird. But young people with big dicks DO look cool with them!
Herbie has a tough (rather impressive) travel schedule a dozen times a year, but he absolutely does not have a tough job!
He won the f’ing job lottery for crying out loud!
I know it’s not PED’s, but I noticed Clemson’s players smelling their fingers/hands so often on the sidelines (including Lawrence) that I swear they must have been using ammonia pills.
I had it on the laptop with no sound, and was also watching tv with my girlfriend, so it wasn’t the main event.
There were time when my anger over our loss boiled up, but for the most part, it feels like watching has helped me move on, and begin to get my mind right for next season.
A bit off subject, but did Joe finish grad school. Is he even going to get a degree from LSU?
I will be thrilled if he mentions OSU on his Sunday night football intros, or even if he goes the high school route.
Joe will probably never get hired at any serious healthcare facility anywhere in California now, due to the fact that there is photographic evidence proving that he believes celebrating a perfect season is more important than the last 6 minutes of old age deathbed time.
He must be tarted or something.
Is the difference losing to Florida instead of of beating Clemson, or celebrating a B1G championship with a cigar instead of a natty?
If you look up, you might see the joke flying over your head.
Archerm, are you cool? It’s 2020 and you sound like a blast at parties!
Um, ... Burrow himself has given all the credit to Urban’s son-in-law, Corey Dennis.
They probably lost because they wore "meh" uniforms. If the team would have worn the Scarlet throwbacks with the script Buckeyes across the chest or even the perfect Grey uniforms, they probably would've scored ten more points, and we'd be a happier fan base today.
What if we scored from outside the red zone?
Sorry if I blew you mind.
Hopefully 11W will have someone listening. If either one says something good about OHIO STATE or wonders aloud why the rules seem to be enforced differently than they were in our playoff game, then I’d like to read about it the next day.
It doesn’t move the needle from “f*ck that game! It’s bullsh*t that the Buckeyes aren’t playing!”, to “okay, I guess it’s all good now.”
I recall hearing a rumor that he got physical with another coach.
He played football when it was a tough guy game, and is one of the greatest Buckeyes ever.
I know Day preaches toughness, but the program seems a bit softer now, which was refreshing for the team and allowed them to have fun and play loose.
In 5-6 years we may have a team made up of Day’s guys who need their tails kicked by a tough guy coach for a while, and I would be pretty excited if it worked out to be Vrable.
Rankings shmankings. We just need to be one of 64 to make the tournament, and then win six games in row.
Not if you understand the value of money.
I am ashamed to admit that I have never made a million dollars in a year, despite my OSU degree.
If anyone (even a shady Russian hit man drug dealer) offered me a million dollars to do something even a tenth as fun a playing football) I would’ve left school to do it.
My major was architecture. If I sketched up a design for the new World Trade Center, won the contest, and was offered a 7 or 8 figure salary to join a firm before completing my degree, I and everyone else who didn’t grow up wealthy would have been a fool to say no.
Chris Ash made approximately 15 million dollars in his 3.3 years at Rutgers. He was a well respected defensive coordinator before taking the HC job in Jersey, and is now the DC at Texas.
I don’t even need an entire hand to count college football coordinator jobs better than @ UT Austin. He’s 15M richer than he was in 2015 and has landed in a spot that’s just as good if not better than was in before the Rutgers experience, the difference is he and his family are financially set.
And then, after two or three years making nearly a 1,000,000 a year at Texas, he will probably get a similar opportunity as a HC at another school.
I should have been a football coach
