And again the embarrassment that is the nouveau riche. They simply do not have the time at the top to grasp how easily you fall from that height. If they can stay elite long enough they will learn. Our fangs has decades of success and failure to have learned from.
And it is a mistake to discount them against that LSU defense.
For me it's a win-win. Like you I have zero love for either team. Bama rolls and ttun loses is a win. Ttun gets a win and the sec flagship program ends with 3 losses making the mythical nature of sec superiority even more obvious and that's a win.

The 6 team model always loses me at the word bye. If 7 and 8 are getting smoked anyway let them 5ake their shot. Giving 1 and 2 a bye week is really making certain the field is not level.
Really it isn't so silly. If you lived through those years you saw the front office pressure to force those first rounders into starters way too fast. This is, and always has been, a weakness of this franchise particularly where quarterbacks are concerned.
Historically speaking the Bengals should avoid a qb in the first, think Akili Smith and Klingler. The have found infinitely better talent in the second and third rounds, Ken Anderson, Boomer and Dalton. And unless Joe really wants to play for a Ohio team he should pray the Bengals miss on him.
Thank you for giving me the logical argument I need. I spend about 35 weeks saying ttun needs to win occasionally to better preserve the rivalry. Now I can let go of that philosophical bullshit. Back to no quarter 52 weeks per year.
Why do I suspect Rex Ryan drew up that defensive play?
I'll go with my girlfriends take this year. She is from Alabama and is actually relieved that Bama is eliminated from the cfp because she didn't care to live through our kicking their ass again.
I want two sec teams in. One each for us and Clemson to eliminate in the first round. Can't imagine a better way to start destroying the mythical sec superiority.
I think he probably was including the seven that was taken off the board by Fields fumbling in the endzone. So yeah in reality it was a 17-point swing.
Many of you aren't old enough to remember the Penn State was an independent that we played once in a while. As I was growing up PSU was just a team in the AP and UPI polls that had precious little to do with my Buckeyes yet ttun was always there at the end of November, always.
This rivalry is about much more than wins or losses. Did Woody ever refuse to buy gas in Pa? Did one of our coaches leave to take the helm of Penn State and then start a 10 year war with our beloved coach and team? Did a PSU player ever take a Heisman stance in our end zone then go on to a career as an idiot in front of tv cameras? I know there was a Toledo War but can't find anything on a Pittsburgh War that might have involved brave Ohio patriots.
Penn State has no resume as a rival. They just have a football team.
The backside OLB on that play was White actually.
Not sure if it was his football knowledge as much as it was his FOOT knowledge.
Absolutely. We definitely took the bullet. Thankfully it was quickly removed and the surgery was successful.
I was at that Bengals game. Wyche was magnificent!
Difference being Tress was really, really good at it.
Just because he stopped eating them on camera doesn't mean he has stopped.
I live in South Bend and once again Shelley shows her wisdom. Nastiest little shit town I have ever had the bad fortune to be in.
You say that now but what if Canada actually made an offer? Huh, Canadians can be pretty gullible eh.
Fix that title I choked on my cheesecake. Please never, ever mistype that Urban took a JOB at Michigan...
I think a lot of people have been questioning why we have the NCAA for some time now. I know fans from most programs do. I suspect coaches, players and administrators do albeit not in public. You are correct that the NCAA does nothing with any consistency. Except They do seem to consistently make money for themselves.
Every Saturday until it gets too cold here we move a TV to the back patio around 10AM for pregame. Two tv's occasionally as we have me, my girlfriend from Alabama and neighbors who are mostly Notre Dame. Noon kickoffs = goetta (yeah I'm from Cincy), eggs and bacon about 11. Late lunch is usually burgers and dogs with hot slaw. TV gets drug back inside about midnight usually. So yeah we are full slaters until it gets cold out, then it's Bucks game and movies indoors.
I'm not as sure as you about that. Schiano had proven himself before last year. I'm looking harder at Grinch or possibly it was just the combination not working with the two of them. But I couldn't be happier Grinch is at OK now.
