It's officially the offseason. The top story on the CBS Eye on College Football blog is about Marcus Baugh getting an MIP, which is apparently his second.
I posted just to put this gem in from an old Simpsons:
Ned Flanders: Pardon me, neighbourinos. Some of our boys are lost in your town. You wouldn't have happened to see them, by any chance?
Shelbyvillian #1: Sounds like Springfield's got a discipline problem.
Shelbyvillian #2: Maybe that's why we beat them at football nearly half the time.
While rumors of his demise have been exaggerated, Jim Tressel did have a press conference today. He actually apologized for the violations and introduced linebacker coach Luke Fickell as his replacement during his five game suspension.
He did not fire Gordon Gee either.
Apparently OSU is also wearing a new helmet this Spring to "honor the military." I think this is the design:
anyone read the ESPN article on Tate Forcier and homeschooling? just wondering what other people's thoughts were. for being a such a recruiting freak i'm dissapointed to not know he is homeschooled. not that i really care. but i was just readin through some of the comments in that article and people were already bashing UofM for having let tate in. a few go on to say how we have shady academic standards for our athletes. i just say, let the haters hate and watch the titles pile up*.
*umm, not right now.
so, i wrote last week how i thought fitz toussaint is putting up ridiculous #'s. to completely copy and paste off of rivals, 'Toussaint picked up 246 yards on only 13 carries
(18.9 yards per carry) … His four touchdowns included runs of 87 and 46
yards.' Those #'s are from his last game. ABSURD. this dude is easily our sleeper of the class. that is until he skyrockets up in the recruiting rankings b/c at this point it is bound to happen.
again, 18.9 ypc. can we agree that our backfield will just be completely stacked for the foreseeable future? oh and just for shits and giggles, 'Teric Jones
carried the ball only seven times for 124 yards (17.7 yards per carry),
including an 80-yard touchdown run.' so, apparently he's kinda good too.
