Turgeon played on the 1986 Kansas final four team that infamously wore red uniforms in their game against Duke. Larry Brown had yet to be caught cheating so he was the coach. Building blocks of the 1988 title team in place on the bench.
shit, this happens in high school, why wouldn't it happen in college?
we need to run an internal investigation to find out if this is how terrelle pryor got in to OSU, then we just decided to give him a chance to play football...
Nobody outside of the OSU fan base is interested in this move. Meyer is a brutal watch on TV and doesn’t move the needle at all.
Did he use his break to become even more out of shape? Guess we'll find out.
Isn't it possible to "get" the rivalry and just not win the game very often?
The list of runners-up from the Big Ten is really impressive, and as you noted, this does in fact matter. Casual fans just don't understand that getting to the final 16 or beyond is "advancing far" in the tournament. Titles aren't the only metric.
Consider the following runners-up: 2005 Illinois, 2007 Ohio State, 2013 Michigan, 2015 Wisconsin. All elite teams. All of whom could have won their title games or a title any other year.
The B10 has had some "non-elite" runners-up in this span, such as 2002 Indiana and 2009 Michigan State and 2018 Michigan, but one of those teams ('02 Indiana) knocked off maybe the best Duke team ever in the final 16, and Michigan's team last year had a very strong year.
This doesn't even take into account all of Michigan State Final 4 teams.
Nor the 2011 OSU team, which I consider - along with 2015 Wisconsin - the best Big Ten team since 1993 Indiana/Michigan (take your pick there).
the comments in response to this post are why every sports fan in america loathes OSU fans. of course these trips don't help them win games. that's not the point. as for NCAA involvement... really? we had andy katzenmoyer play here and he was actually eligible. think about that for two seconds. he was actually eligible.
The OSU jealousy of Brady is sad and pathetic. The guy won a BCS game there and for a while held the Ohio Stadium record for passing attempts in one game. While they lost the game and several were intercepted - it also disproves the theory that “Brady didn’t play” for TTUN. Let’s just be men and accept that the GOAT went to TTUN. We still thrash them every year.
Good thing they have that Brady guy at QB...
Get this guy on the basketball team too.... he'd be starting for them right now
at least there's one coach that actually follows rules...
The basketball takes on this site are just brutal. It’s so obvious it’s a bunch of football fans that don’t understand basketball in the slightest. UM barely shot better than we did and essentially won by 20. They just have a better player at every position. And that includes Teske over Wesson. Who from OSU would get playing time for UM?
the current players simply don't pass the eye test. i don't care what any advanced metrics or stats reveal (though i'm sure those aren't flattering either) jackson shoots like a middle school girl. andre wesson is a good high school player. kaleb wesson is still in bad shape and clearly just getting tired. ahrens is a poor man's dane goodwin. young is a poor man's wisconsin player.
thankfully reinforcements are en route.
Is there a reason the current staff didn’t make a greater effort to keep Dane Goodwin from last years class? He’s breaking out at ND and exactly the kind of offensive player we need. Really scratching my head on this one.
hey at least we’ll beat Michigan. Oh wait...
Just to make sure I'm keeping score correctly... we're hiring two coaches from a staff that is bashed on this site literally every hour of every day?
That “leadership and culture” class will be hilarious... is the official name “FBI’s Most Wanted”?
Does this mean he’s good again?
Why don't we become obsessed with average B1G West programs? Would that enable us to actually make the playoff? We can laugh all we want about UM not reaching expectations, but it sounds like national titles are what we expect. 2 in almost 50 years is solid, but not great.
OSU and Michigan fans and administration have TOTALLY different standards for retaining a coach. If Harbaugh goes 10-2 every year he will never be fired. Not saying that's right or wrong -- or whether OSU's more exacting standard is right or wrong -- but this is an apples to oranges comparison.
i hope this is a joke. happ is more athletic than any big man we've had at OSU in like 25 years.
just to confirm from the last 19 articles published... recruiting is important, right?
What a missed opportunity... they could have brought Zach Smith back...
it will change with meyer in the rear view mirror. yeah, meyer was an awesome coach and won a lot of games. but he is LOATHED. it kept OSU out of the playoff this year and it will be excellent to get a fresh start with day. the media sucks, but they're absolutely fatigued on OSU.
Are OSU fans legitimately more interested in recruiting than the actual games? It feels that way most of the time. Live by the bagman, die by the bagman.
