Football Display Case
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games

Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
Purdue just hit an 84 yard TD pass on the first play from scrimmage.
It's getting to the point now where I doubt they'll be able to fix it until the offseason

You mean to tell me that Urban Meyer's "strong" history of good defenses didn't follow him to Ohio?
No, it left and went to A2.
it followed hin to AZ. Its just lost in the desert.
Unfortunately, Purdue has no O-Line either.
I'm amazed at how fat some of Purdues guys are. Do they not bother to condition the O-Line?
Go Boilers. I'm kind of hoping we'll be the first ones to give Ohio a loss this year, but if it was Purdue, I could live with that.

This just reeks of the sort of game where Ohio sleep walks through the first half and then does just barely enough to win in the second half. Purdue's inability to complete several passes of under 5 yards already makes a Boilers win seem disappointingly unlikely.
That said...BOILER UP!
And all these bad teams, man they want the...
They want the...

B-I-G. Oh God.
The Luke Fickell Flying Failures never fail to impress.
Michigan: 903–315–36 (Best in NCAA)
vs Ohio State: 58-44-6
vs Notre Dame: 23-16-1
vs MSU: 68-32-5
vs B1G: 522-197-24
vs SEC: 20-8-1
vs PAC 12: 48-24-1
vs Big 12: 10-5-1<
And yet Fickell put a top-20 D out there last year. The difference is no Tressel.
The difference is their scouting has sucked for a while now and they've whiffed on guys like Greg Jones, Jerel Worthy, Jake Ryan, and Frank Clark. It started to catch up to them last year when we hung 40+ on them and this year I see a team with a couple good players (Simon, Robey, Hankins) but not much else and a few guys who can be major liabilities (Shazier especially).
It is spelled HOKEAMANIA. Our coach is an ass-kicking American citizen, not one of the Beatles, for Christ's sake!
But . . . but . . . but . . . according to the OZone there are only 2 players on our D that could start for Ohio State.
This is entirely true. If they hadn't gotten Michigan offers, they'd have gone to a school where the D is not coached by Adam Sandler
made me laugh.
I thought they fixed everything because they called a meeting...

ask my old boss.
department as well.
But yeah, Urban Meyer need to hire back Jim Heacock like yesterday.
Jim Heacock essentially ran TOSU's defense, where it placed the top 10 for almost the entire decade. It's becoming more and more apparent that Fickell isnt ready to take the reins on a larger scale. I wonder if Everett Withers is going to be given more responsibility going into 2013.
So having a meeting doesn't fix everything? I hate Urban Meyer and not because he is the head coach at Ohio but that is all the more reason.
Marcus Rush will hit him from the blindside ending his coaching career.
All in for some manball.
OSU will field a better defense, but I agree that it won't be this year. Just not a lot of depth outside the line.
but Purdue is probably going to lose 41-6 now
Is this the first game you've watched all year?
Ha ha ha, Special Teams!
or special teams.
Wow...100 yard kickoff return for Purdue....wow
Purdue is Ohio's new Illinois... they always seem to have a TON of trouble with the Hopestache and his crew kind of like when Juice Williams ran all over OSU... But still Purdue sucks but apparently Ohio's D sucks more
Purdue just ran a fake punt for 12+ yards. Ohio's making them look pretty good today.
"that's why you don't go to Ohio State, Lawrence"
Wow. That fake punt for a first down inside their own 20 was a gutsy call by Purdue...or maybe it was the punter improvising. Either way that took some balls....and it worked.
Looked like a rugby-punt with an option for a rush - I think we did something similar under the RR years wtih Mesko
So is Ohio, being lead by a mainly offensive head coach in Meyer... neglecting the defense (or beginning to neglect it) in a similar manner that Rich Rod did at Michigan?
The difference is, I assume Meyer will get the money to clean housse on the D side of the ball and go bring in a top flight D-Coord and some up and coming posistion coaches. As opposed to "Fuck it, lets go hire Greg Robinson." Meyer's a merc and will have no issue cleaning people out if they fail to perform.
GERG made almost $300,000 as DC at Michigan. Rich Rod could have hired someone much better for that money, but he chose not to. This was after he hung Scott Shafer out to dry publicly. Good on your boy eh?
If by "hung Scott Schafer out to dry publicly" you meant "fired him for having a crap defense," then yes, I agree with you. Just because Shafer's defense wasn't as bad as GERG's doesn't mean it wasn't a bad defense.
Also, your comparison to RichRod is dumb. Meyer is neglecting the defense,yes, but he is also ranked, unbeaten, and has already won against MSU.
ha ha...flamebait for that true comment? some people here still can not handle the truth
99 times out of 99, people who bring up Rich Rod are doing so to start an eFight.
I put up a tough front, but deep down I just want to be held.
well...that may be true but I was only making a point.. someone else turned it in to a flame in his/her mind.
this Ohio DL. This truly pathetic. We gave up to Purdue only what 120 yards of total offense all game?! Ohio fans are delusional if they really believe we're gonna get killed by this team lmao BOILER UP
We hate Michigan State. We don't like Penn State too. We don't care for Minnesota, Wisconsin or Notre Dame but we all hate O-S-U.

To be fair, tOSU's defense isn't great, but the offense's tendency to turn the ball over makes them look worse than they are. They are given shit hands a lot. Although right now they're doing a terrible job after the fake punt. That punt conversion seemed to suck all the aggression out of tOSU.
Would it be safe to assume this is how the rest of the B1G felt watching Gerg D at Michigan? Watching Fickell try to coach this Ohio D?
Purdue seems to have foregone the spread stuff...at least on this drive in favor of a more short timing passing attack...Good stuff sprinkled in with some decent runs from Ralph Bolden. Bolden isn't a bad RB, just been injured far too much in his career. But this drive is a pretty impressive and extended drive.
It's tough being Blue in Columbus!!!
Spread Offense = No Defense
Is shutting out LSU right now. Notre Dame has an elite defense and runs the spread. Meyer's Florida defenses were killer in the title years (courtesy of Mattison). This is just a false assertion. Correlation is not causation.
Moeller v. Excalibur Restaurant -- Fight!
Oregon, Michigan (RR years), Nebraska (was good now terrible) and as for your arguments. LSU can't score on anyone ranked in the top 60, ND runs a power spread and if I remember right Henne and company torched Meyers Florida team but there are always exceptions, I was just speaking generally.
Though Oregon isn't one of them -- they held Cam Newton to a season-low 22 in the 2010 title game.
My point is that it's possible that teams with great spread offenses and horrible defenses are just more memorable than those who are sound on both sides of the ball. "Power Spread" is still spread. Oregon runs power all the freaking time. And bear in mind, in 2006, we gave up 43 to OSU. That Florida team we shredded the next year held them to 14.
