Nope. Still largest crowd in America this past weekend but Alabama and LSU were within 1500.
Sept 13th OSU had 104K, TAMU had 103K and we only had 102K so we were not the largest crowd anywhere in America. I will have watch this more closely from now on.
Does anyone know if Grapentine said largest crowd anywhere in america today against Miami?

In this offense I'd take Threet in a heartbeat. Making the #1 dual threat QB in the nation play as a play action drop back passer is a recipe for disaster. Escpecially when nobody respects your play action.

1. Start Smith at TB.
Green was running soft. I've never seen a tail back get put on roller skates by 1 tackler before. He seemed to want to tip-toe through the hole rather than make a decision and cut with authority. He chose to go out of bounds rather than cut up field and hit a guy who was at least 30 lbs lighter than he was. Brought down by arm tackles at least twice. At least he didn't fumble.

81-23 in Big Ten play. Every year were at 6-2 in the conference. At the time I hated it but now I'd love to be that consistent.
2011 was a special year because we had special players in Martin, RVB, Molk, etc.
2012 was a typical Carr season. Loss to ND and other high profile OOC game. 6-2 in conference and a loss in a NYD bowl.
2013 was a disaster. Bill Snyder and his juco warriors just put the cherry on top.
Since the announcement of PSU's sanctions they have a better overall record than we do. 2 more wins and 4 fewer losses. Unbelieveable.

This. So much this. The head coach can't be BFF with the players. Freshmen year you should fear him. Sophmore year you should tolerate him. Junior year you understand him. Senior year you love him.
This team needs more adversity in practice so once fecal matter hits the proverbial fan they don't cave mentally. This team accepts losing far too easily.

As Hoke tells it the reason we lost the first 2 games in '98 was because the DL didn't focus on fundamentals during fall camp.

The question is when will they be able to deliver food to my seat by drone?

It will be worth it to have the MSU and OSU tickets next season. But this season it is not worth it.
|3 days 2 hours ago||I'm not saying I agree with||
I'm not saying I agree with them being placed higher than '97 but the utter domination that MSU showed last season has to count for something. I mean they were 1 or 2 pass interference calls away from playing in the BCS NCG. Real recognize real 2013 MSU was a great team.

Won by 10 points or more against all B1G opponents faced has to be the logic there.

Agreed. I'd like to see some fire and emotion after somebody makes a mistake. Not to the levels of going purple in the face but enough so to please my desire to see anything other than clapping and butt slapping.

I thought the reason McGary got a year was because he tested positive on an NCAA administered test. I assume Spence tested positive on an OSU administered test so they can suspend him how ever long they want.

Brady Hoke sideline instructions:
1. Point towards the ball
2. Stare in disbelief after play
3. Clap hands and slap butts of players coming off the field
4. Repeat as necessary

From his Wikipedia Page:
"Beamer took over a Virginia Tech football program that was largely unsuccessful in its first century, having reached only six bowl games to that point."

IMO it is not that Hoke lost to ND this year but rather how we lost. If this game had been a close fought battle into the 4th quarter instead of a shutout people would be much more relaxed.
At this point I'm worried about vUtah, vPenn St, and @Rutgers. I'm terrified of @MSU and @OSU. As far as I'm concerned Hoke needs to get at least 9 wins this season+bowl to have my support for another year.

Don't do this
|1 week 4 days ago||I see no issue with that||
I see no issue with that after all it is the donor's money to begin with. If the academic side had truly convinced them to donate then they wouldn't have wavered. Until the check is in hand the academic side should keep trying to close the donation.
|1 week 4 days ago||Nobody has rights to donors||
Nobody has rights to donors so how can they be poached?
Any AD worth his salt will look a list of people who have donated to the University (in any capacity) and shoot them an email or phone call inquiring if they are interested in donating to the athletic department. And those who donated more might get a personal contact from the AD him/herself or invited to join him in the booth for a game.
It should be the same way with the President for academic donations. Compile a list of all donors (athletic included) and get in touch to see if they have ever considered donating to academics or endowing a scholarship for [insert group here] students. Those who have donated more might get a personal tour of research facilities or labs etc. to see the work being done first hand.
Drawing lines in the sand about donors seems petty to me.
