You can't lose that many seniors/All Big Ten/All Americans and expect to reload that easily with sophomores and true freshmen, many of whom didn't see that many snaps. It's not realistic. Inevitably someone will say "Ohio State just did". While they replaced a lot of players (a) it wasn't as many as we have to replace and (b) their recruiting has been better and for more consecutive years. They're fielding wave after wave of high four and five stars while he have some.
We'll find out quickly how good we are next year against a solid Florida team.

A lot of talk about .....members......very Freudian
|3 days 5 hours ago||Assuming no CFP||
Assuming the CFP is out of reach I'd like to do Orange Bowl vs Louisville. If you're not in the CFP may as well get the team a win to go out on. Plus, playing a team that isn't in the state the bowl is in (USC in Rose, Florida State in Orange) makes it less like an away game.
|4 days 6 hours ago||I hope so||
I really hope so. Without Hurst our DT depth is really thin.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Next year?||
Just a reminder that we lose basically all of our starters and will be starting mostly sophomores and some freshmen next year. Just saying. Our chance for glory is likely two years away. Next year is going to be some version of a rebuild.

No joy on power play for M to start period
|1 week 5 days ago||Very hopeful||
I was very hopeful for Klinsmann at the start but it just didn't happen. Probably right move.
|1 week 6 days ago||We could||
We could start a true freshman at left tackle
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Easy y'all||
We have no idea if the teams we played are any good. Can we get through a few more weeks before we start revising expectations.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'll cautiously bang||
I'll cautiously bang for a hoops team that may be better than expected and the thought that though we'll be starting a new QB tomorrow, it's not his first rodeo. If we get the W tomorrow, the worst the team is looking at is a New Years Six bowl.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I saw Bo's ambulance go by on his way to Providence Hospital||
Bo was recording a TV piece in Southfield when he had his heart attack. I remember looking out my office window which faces 9 Mile Road and is down the street from Providence Hospital (where Bo was brought) and a literal phalanx of five or six police cars was running interference for a lone ambulance behind it going top speed towards Providence Hospital. I remember saying to myself that someone important must be in there because I've seen police escorts of ambulances before but not like that one. An hour later I heard the news.
JUST A REMINDER: a group of alums runs an event called Gravewalk on the Tuesday before every Ohio State game (meaning this coming Tuesday). Everyone meets at the fountain next to Burton Bell Tower and walks up to Forest Hills Cemetary to lay flowers at the graves of Bo, Ufer and Yost. I'll post a reminder Monday but keep in the back of your mind.

|2 weeks 6 days ago||The biggest thing we lost last night||
I think aside from the obvious (going undefeated) the biggest thing we lost was that feeling that we were u stoppable. That feeling that we WERE that good. Not so much anymore.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||6th||
They'll give us the soft schedule noise and justify our drop saying we lost to the worst opponent. Then someone will bring up Clemson and they'll justify by saying they beat Louisville/harder schedule.

How the hell did that happen?

This game is a war.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Amazing how much more comfortable||
It's amazing how much more comfortable the team looks in the 4-4-2 versus that three defensemen set at the outset.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||That was manly||
Bobby Wood tore that up
|3 weeks 23 hours ago||Any kind of result||
Any kind of result tonight (to non-soccer fans, that means getting a win or a tie, both of which get you points towards World Cup qualifying) would be fantastic.
The top 3 teams out of 6 qualify for the World Cup and while winning the group would be nice, qualifying is where its at. Mexico is probably the top team in the group so getting even a point would start things out right.
US hasn't won in Costa Rica in forever so getting the point tonight to avoid two losses to start qualifying is important.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Still 4th||
Still 4th an hour later but his votes have doubled and hes a few votes off 3rd place and within 15 on 2nd.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||How many||
How many of those did we put on the shelf?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I like vote rigging||
Isn't that one of the things we do well here.
EDIT: He's currently in 4th behind Greg Ward from Houston, Lamar Jackson from Louisville and Jalen Hurts from Alabama
