I wouldn't mind seeing a quick comparison of Urban's initial class. On paper, it looks like a solid class (http://ohiostate.247sports.com/Season/2012-Football/Commits), but which were recruited by Meyer and their level of impact.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Realistically, how many||
Realistically, how many recruits does Michigan still have a shot at for this year?
Unrealistically, say Harbaugh isn't able to land a single recruit by signing day (February 3rd/April 1st), how deterimental is that?
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I don't know about you...||
but I don't exactly feel all that great about beating Ohio in 2011. Yes, it was great to finally break the streak, and to have a +1 in the win column, but everyone also knows it was historically one of their worst seasons ever.
It just made it seem like the only way we could have broken the streak was because they were horrendous. I don't know, maybe I'm alone in that sentiment.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Charged dropped||
The charges were most likely dropped because she realized she would probably get charged with assault/battery. While there was modicum of chance that Hyde could successfully plead self-defense.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Agreed.||
My family and I met him once on a trip down to Columbus. My dad asked for a picture with Gee and the guy was hella charismatic. Gee talked to all of us, asked our names, playful jabbed at us when he found out where we were from, and had us laughing in the short 2 minutes.

My friend was on the soccer team, and she wanted to be a business major (was hoping to own her own business/gym one day). Her advisor, however, was very persistent in her becoming a sociology major even though she said had no interest in the subject.
Now she's graduated, working as a personal trainer with a Sociology degree from Michigan that she'll probably never use.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Observation & Question:||
I was at The Game this year, and I saw several players from both teams flipping the bird over the course of 3+ hours. So I have mixed feelings about punishing a player solely because he got caught on national TV doing it.
Hall should've known that the cameras would be on him after an ejection, but he got punished then shouldn't the refs started penalizing EVERY single player that does it? Like having one official who's sole job is to monitor the sidelines and make sure everything is staying PG.
Ultimately, Hall should have probably recieved an additonal 1-game suspension I think though. Just for the sake of consistency.

Damn if Pryor doesn't just pour his heart out onto the field.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||What is George Whitfield Jr.'s background?||
I hadn't even heard his name until Johnny Football broke out last year, and then Braxton Miller spent some time with him this winter too.
What makes him a "quarterback guru?"
|2 years 51 weeks ago||I'm conflicted.||
I really only know one Notre Dame fan, and he's relatively quiet about it.
My workplace, however, is filled with "SEC fans." The type of fans that end their e-mails with "S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C!" to signify the streak (He's a Vanderbilt alum...). Or guys that yell "Roll Tide!" EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY SEE EACH OTHER... I don't know if I can take another year of it. It needs to end.
|3 years 4 days ago||Not sure if serious||
The comment is referring to how the staff has 3 coaches with D-Line coaching experience: Jerry Montgomery, Greg Mattison, and Brady Hoke, while the O-line only has Darrell Funk.
|3 years 6 days ago||It just so damn frustrating...||
That fucking Urban went 12-0 in his first year in the B1G. I'm just going to chalk it up to a down B1G year... fuck.
|3 years 6 days ago||Well, this was back in like week 5 or 6.||
The announcer said that Simon had injured it towards to end of fall practice, so he had been playing through the pain up until then. I'm assuming that the same shoulder is still injured, and is the cause of these reports.
|3 years 1 week ago||I remember watching one of their games||
The announcer said that Simon has been battling a shoulder injury all season, maybe a partial torn ligament? Simon opted to not have surgery, I think.
|3 years 1 week ago||Topic was semi-covered last night||
A picture of it being modeled was included:
Overall, it's one of the better ones, I'm not sure I like the reflective numbers though. It'll look better once it is covered in tears.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Carlos Hyde||
What are your guys' thoughts on Carlos Hyde? Will he be a threat for Ohio in "The Game" or will our run D be able to shut him down?
He's a 230lbs bruiser with 740 yards and 14 TDs in 10 games.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||I did not know that||
I did not know that Navy beat Air Force. I just kinda assumed Navy would get beaten after seeing their game against Notre Dame.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||The 6:00 mark||
Was where I had no choice, but to concede... that was pretty amazing.
I feel dirty.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Can you link the video?||
Because the only one I could find it's a poor camera angle, but to me it looked like Hankins was trying to push Jack Allen away with a flat hand. Allen though was purposefully trying to shove his hand into Hankins' helmet.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||They're just not good...||
They also lost Danny Coale I think. I just think they came into the season overhyped, they'll probably come out with the same record as last year though once they get through the ACC.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Really?||
"I always like my team's coach to react really harshly for show and then relent when it turns out he overreacted.
"My Buckeye brother in law was just texting me talking shit about Hoke possibly playing Fitz against Alabama. I then saw this post as we're arguing and informed him. The texts have now stopped." (Score: 5)
"“The charges that would have violated our core values have been totally dismissed."
So, disorderly conduct is within the new core values at Ohio. Good for other star players to know where the line has been drawn." (Score: 5)
I didn't even have to get to end of the page.
Herm, please do not take too much offense from the majority of these replies. I have found it really difficult to argue against the hivemind.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Apologies then||
Admittedly, I did not follow the Cam Newton case all that closely. Looks like Urban still suspended him though.
I still question why Cam would willingly transfer from a National Championship contender, where he was slated to be a stater, to a Junior College.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Yes, thank you.||
Please focus on the semantics, and ignore the rest of my post. I like how I get negged for not agreeing with the hivemind.
How about next time I call it "borrowing without the intent of returning?" Better?
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Why is the terms of the punishment so black and white?||
Most are not saying Clark should be kicked off the team, the argument is that a one game suspension is pretty weak for a felony regardless of what extra conditioning he did in the offseason.
Someone brought up that Clark should be redshirted until his probation and felony charge is lifted from his record. How is that not fair? Clark will still be on scholarship, he'll still get to practice with the team, and he won't lose a year of eligibility.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||It's not ridiculous||
If Hoke knew that having "the team's best running back" wasn't going to change the outcome of the game. Honestly, having Fitz wouldn't have changed it.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||That's one way to look at it...||
I would be completely fine if this was a case of sliding across a hood of a car, a minor-in-possession, or even getting caught with pot.
The fact that this was Clark STEALING someone else’s laptop hits closer to home. I remember having my laptop stolen while I was a freshman in the dorm. It absolutely sucked. I put in a whole summer's worth of work at a landscaping company in order to play for that laptop. To come back from class one day and find out that someone had stolen it was a punch in the gut.
If they had ever found out who did it, you bet that I would charge the criminal to my fullest ability. Stealing someone else's hard earned property is disgusting.
I mean we all rag on Urban Meyer being a poor disciplinarian, but he kicked Cam Newton off the Florida for a similar charge. I'm not saying that Hoke should follow suit, but I just don't think that one game is adequate.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||IU-UMass||
The spread for the IU-UMass game was -14, and the final score was 45-6.
So final score for Michigan game, 135-18. Book it.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Alabama's O-line opened up||
Alabama's O-line opened up holes so big against the D-line that it allowed a true freshman to go 5-6 yards without getting touched. The kid ran for over 100 yards on 11 carries, I didn't really see a "glass half-full" scenerio.
Maybe, except that BWC wasn't completely invisible, but I think Saban had taken his foot off the pedal by that point.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||Still skeptical...||
All I heard leading up to the game was that Alabama's secondary had the least experience out of all their defensive units. Yet, it seemed like they manhandled our WRs. Our biggest reception came from a bomb that resulted from Dee Milliner slipping... otherwise that guy looked like one of the best cover corners I've ever seen.
I'm hopeful that the whole "weak secondary" rumor was a lie, and athletic freaks were actually just covering our receivers. I'll remain skeptical until I see our receivers perform against some B1G secondaries though.
