Losing to Auburn by 12 is better in every conceivable dimension than losing to Iowa by 31
Don't lose to bad teams by 31 points if you want consideration IMO
Who are some candidates to replace Schiano?
If Urban does the right thing and cans Billy Davis, I wouldn't mind seeing Paul Haynes brought back to coach safeties and linebacker specialist brought in as DC. John Chavis should be available after Sumlin is fired, but he wasn't able to turn around the TAMU D in a couple of years, so he might be on the downslope of his career. Same goes for Bob Shoop and Bob Diaco.
Hoping for a young up-and-comer of some kind. Grinch is a good suggestion.
This one goes out to JT, all-timer
I'm just glad I gave up on this team early, when they happily drafted a confirmed woman beater.
Cops played better defense than we did.
Logged in purely to upvote this. Same goes from Dabo's preseason quotes about watching OSU film and knowing we were in trouble vs. Clemson. Don't like it? Beat 'em. Otherwise, take the ass-kicking and move on.
The issue is not JT Barrett or Isaiah Prince. The issue is that we have two stud running backs who have been given the ball on run plays a total of 5 times.
Expect to see more of this in the coming years, along with declining participation in the sport at the high school level and below. It's already happening in many wealthier neighborhoods.
Not watching the video because I can't stand this guy. That said, he isn't entirely wrong.
You had an unacceptably bad loss to Michigan State at home that cost you the national title in 2015.
In 2016 you lose to an eminently beatable Penn State team in a game you should have run with when the score was 21-7.
Talent on talent, the only team that should give Ohio State trouble each year is Alabama. That hasn't been the case the last couple of years, and that all came down to (mostly offensive) coaching.
EDIT: Also, while Clemson was good last year, there was absolutely no excuse for getting blown out by them, 31-0. That is not what an elite program does on the big stage.
It's been a while since I followed recruiting with any regularity, but I remember this happening every year. They shuffle around committed players, generally moving uncommitted players up a bit so people keep paying attention. If the entire top 100/250 is committed before signing day, people have less and less reason to continue their subscriptions to recruiting sites.
I will be shocked if they finish outside the top 3.
I will be in bed by halftime. Hopefully the Buckeyes won't make me think twice about it.
And hopefully this is the last weekday game we play for a loooong time.
Not firing Thad after last season reeks of Notre Dame not firing Charlie Weis after 3-9. It'll take another year of worse-than-mediocrity to end this travesty.
Getting ready to fire up the Dandy Don for Clemson
They can't handle offenses that punch them in the mouth. Shame Urban and the offensive staff were so scared of this soft defensive front that they didn't even try.
Those DTs looked fat and out of shape when our offense was aggressive and physical in 2014.
Shocking: the team that gets physical and runs the football on Clemson kicks their ass.
Why can't this staff convince guys who are considered marginal NFL prospects at the moment to stay? Last year it was Marshall and Powell, this year it's Brown (undrafted?) and Jones (sold player but not league-ready)? Meanwhile, potential 1st/2nd round guys routinely return to places like Clemson, Alabama, and even Michigan.
All 1st round draft grades
McMillan (third round grade from draft advisory board I heard)
From what I saw tonight, no one on that offensive line is getting drafted until they start getting coached.
No changes = no more championships
Tress suffered for retaining Bollman all those years. Urban is supposed to have higher standards. The time for change was last season.
Good pizza is hard to come by here, you're right.
Da fuq is this
Off the top of my head:
D and E-Z-O's
Borgata Pizza Cafe
Mikey's Late Night Slice
Pies and Pints
All of these fall somewhere on the spectrum between good, great, and freaking exceptional
Spots? It's not like Saban has ever let anything like "available scholarships" keep him from signing the Number 1 class, year in and year out, and turning around and telling his 5th year seniors they should finish their careers at Tennessee State
