|3 hours 40 min ago||Hmm I like this||
|3 hours 44 min ago||Recruiting Threat Scale||
Meyer w/ an NC Game (even a loss) > Dantonio w/ a BTC and Rose Bowl win
Reason: national perception = State got lucky, OSU is back to dominating the B1G and competing for National Championships w/ and SEC coach.
We need State to shut Hyde and Miller down.
Why do I feel so queasy?
|1 day 3 hours ago||Why?||
Because it is better to be all emo / glass half empty?
motley, some of us appreciate the laugh!
|1 day 22 hours ago||I think publicly apologizing to Wolverines fans||
would stick in his craw enough.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Eh - in a thread somewhere Mr. Smith suggested||
that a post football year of additional tuition (to pursue the degree or classes that were too challenging while playing) and health insurance for football related injuries / diasbilities would be what most players would like to see.
I could see that and the stipend as well. I also think the health insurance part should include assistance taking the muscle and weight back off in a healthy way.
On the other hand most of these guys do not go on to the NFL, and their prime opportunity for endorsement income, ect. is while they are playing in college. Much like Olympic atheletes - as long as it is above board and reported - I don't have a problem with them making money on their fame. (This especially over paying Al Borges more than his results are worth, not to mention paying for skywriting and additional "marketing" staff.)
|1 day 22 hours ago||If I were his coach||
Hall would be issuing a public appology to the fans he flipped off (funny how he has issued a social media appology to the Buckeye fans), and privately he'd be running steps for a few days.
Otherwise, ain't no big deal really. He had clearly lost his temper ... no one was hurt except maybe the bench and his foot.
I also think both Buckeyes in question should play against Michigan State. This really was a non-event that was handled on scene.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Not sure which of the stubborn Borges ones to choose||
but I think:
Al Borges knows his job is on the line, and if the game goes down as expected (3 TD spread), he's gone. Even his boss' boss publicly released a statement calling out Hoke and Mattison (his peer) as staying but did not mention Borges.
So, much like the 2008 Cap One Bowl, Al broke out the play book and got creative to either a) save his job, or b) audition for the next one.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Dynamic change:Man did all my Buckeye hatred come flooding back||
after that fight though. I went from "hmm, maybe we can play in this" - to - "Goddamned Buckeyes, let's kick their asses" in about ten seconds. It felt like the game is back, and we on.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Hmmm - this is an interesting game within a game though||
another reason to watch the Big Ten Championship Game sponsored by Pepto Bismol.
So you're saying this is the game where MSU's mugging DBs get called left, right and center ....
|3 days 5 hours ago||Yeah, they 1 upped us and won||
I would say that 2006 was more epic because of the 1/2 clash of titans nature. That said, the Buckeyes won both, and this year's would have been more epic if we won it.
|3 days 19 hours ago||hmmm - Ohio spies||
are present around Schembechler hall. Maybe they are employing drones....
|3 days 21 hours ago||Pipkins, Ross, Wilson out||
On of the other LBs playing hurt the last few weeks. JMFR cannot be 100% yet - especially speed-wise. Most of that showed in OSUs run game, and then there was poor Furman back there all by himself.
Wonder if they are having a pass defense catharsis over at 11 warriors.
|3 days 23 hours ago||I hate that I can't||
get tickets to go to this game for a reasonable cost - so I hate Duke!
Congratulations to them in football though.
|4 days 1 hour ago||wondering if there is some home and away correlation||
on that last chart? Do home games have shorter threads?
|4 days 1 hour ago||Your last paragraph||
is totally why I am here.
Bring back the old moderation, and I think we get to a more civil board where this xan be accomplished.
|4 days 2 hours ago||OK Francis||
take out the for free part of the comment and re-read it.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Man are we missing Mr. Smith||
|4 days 2 hours ago||Unless you take the 80000 foot view||
and expect the program to put the right AD, coaches, players, facilities, and other resources in place to beat Ohio and MSU in addition to ND, win Conference Championships, and compete for national ones on a regular basis.
Great companies perform well over time even with top management and key personnel changes. (e.g., the team that beat us yesterday).
|4 days 2 hours ago||I'm wondering if he took||
heat for Hand going to Bama and now Peppers saying he's taking other officials in case.
I am guessing this site is an annoyance to the department because they can't control the content. I am also guessing Brians emo posts are being pointed to for keading masses and the fringe over the wall and thus at least fertilizing the Hoke may be fired rumors.
While there may be some truth to the fertilization theory, I don't want a slappy site. I was educated at Michigan and thus enjoy the Brian / Space Coyote debate. If we just had Space Coyote, my own inner debate would not be fed, and down here in NC there are not many others to debate it with.
|4 days 2 hours ago||The ponts allow you||
to +1 great debate points and counterpoints and -1 the jerky-flamy types who resort to name calling because they disagree.
|4 days 2 hours ago||I said on the live blog||
Why not go for points now AND when we get the first possession after the half?
This was in response to the announcer saying it was OK not to go for it because we get the first possession in the second half.
In the end, even a shot at a field goal would have had game winning implications.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Well it was a lot more civil||
On the live blog yesterday. I'm guessing our "fuck" count is down this week, unless our positive "fuck" count is way up (e.g., "fuck yeah!"), because the team that played ND showed up.
However, if you think back to RR years, this board stayed civil because of self moderation. Anonymous people behaved like they were in in a public social situation, and the loud drunk uncles were reminded stearnly to behave and if they didn't were thrown out.
So, this was just a bad year for negging to go by the wayside.
|4 days 17 hours ago||I thought the Clark call was BS||
but I am pretty sure OSU didn't score on that drive.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Was absolutely the right thing to do||
With Gibby out, our prospects in OT were more iffy.
Agree Gallon and Dileo were too close. Maybe were forced that way by coverage?
Wish it had worked, but our players played a hell of a game just the same. Major props to Hoke for the balls out call, and Devin for another warrior performance.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Like a 2008 Wisconsin||
|6 days 36 min ago||Uh - I actually think||
we could surprise in the bowl game. Time will heal Gardner and other ailing players. They will also have time to gel a line, qnd a strategy around our limitations, not to mention further defensive improvements.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I don't get the love for Morris||
What exaclty has he done that shows he'll be better than Devin Gardner?
Devin Gardner was a 4 star prospect ranked number 1 in his class. He kicked ass at the Nike Elite Eleven, and had a lot of praise from Winfield and the Mannings this past summer.
Shane Morris was a 4 star prospect ranked number 4 in his class. He struggled to get to the Elite Eleven, and did not have the greatest season his senior year. In the games he has played in this year, he has a lower completion percentage than Devin, and YPC is pretty much the same. And then there is game experience (remember Bellomy).
The point is, Shane is a totally unknown entity over Devin Gardner. Can Shane be The Guy, sure ... but right now Devin Gardner is our best chance to win. As far as next year is concerned, they should compete for the starting position (bet Gardner wins it), and we need them both at QB for depth reasons.
That said, in 2007, I thought Ryan Mallet was our better chance to beat Ohio State over an obviously one armed Chad Henne. (My Buckeye friends were worried when Mallet went in, and then couldn't figure out why we went back to an ineffective Henne.)
If Devin is that hurt, then maybe a few series with Morris in the game to see if we can get something rolling is the way to go.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Some kind of apocalypse must be going to happen:||
the Detroit Lions are winning big on Thanksgiving Day.
I am confused .... what do I do?
|1 week 11 min ago||Because of the shit storm surrounding the program||
inflamed by the Freep Stretchgate before his second season even started.
I was trying to remember whether any OL left the program that RR recruited.
|1 week 29 min ago||He could have avoided any controversy||
surrounding Rich Rod by not mentioning Lloyd Carr. The fact that he praises Carr's recruiting and says nothing about Rich's when many of the key contributors on this team are Rodriquez recruits lays the base of the blame on Rich Rodriguez's shoes. (Granted, yeah the Oline problems are part on Rodrigeuz recruiting, but also part on The Process ...)
This is a very interesting statement for who is, and who is not mentioned. If I were Al Borges, I would be sweating bullets.
