|7 years 4 weeks ago||Screw osu||
I hope osu losses by 50. Them barely winning a game will do next to nothing for the big 10's reputation. Did Michigan spanking Florida last year end the SEC is faster crap. Why do we care what SEC or Big 12 fans think anyway. osu needs to suffer, Hook em Horns!

No we need to go with the original Evil Sensei Mr. John Kreese. He's a very strict disciplinarian.
|7 years 6 weeks ago||Parker Sucks||
I can't miss an opportunity to trash this clown. I can't think of a sports personality from Detroit I disdain more. I don't remember seeing a single article of his I ever remotely liked or agreed with. His questions have no logic and he's just trying to make a spectacle of things. Is Joe Barry the secret root of all the Lions woes. Why would firing Joe Barry with a week left in the season help anything? Garbage. The way he uses his "moles" to say anything he wants and nobody seems to care is infuriating. Especially when so-called journalists scoff and mock the internet for being worse than tertiary.
What pisses me off most is parker always showing up on espn. Why do they have to pick the worst Detroit has to offer. I wish the news would have fired him to save money instead of cutting off delivery.
|7 years 7 weeks ago||A few points||
Actually there are 119 teams with Western Kentucky bumping the total to 120 in the near future. That being said if there were 15 black head coaches to match their percentage of the population in America would that solve everything. If the total were greater then 15 would that be a sign of an unfair advantage to minorities. The answer to both is no because focusing on race over qualifications is a mistake. The argument over the percent of black players vs coaches also fails. Do all those players want to be coaches? Do all the white players want to be coaches?
Keep in mind how small a number 119 is. A head coaching job is extremely rare for anyone. I'm sure plenty of candidates from all races will never get the chance they want. Looking at the percentages again more whites mean more whites not getting head coaching jobs. If rich boosters are truly committed to keeping the Aryan coaching bloodline pure at the risk of their demise let them fail.
If I were an Auburn fan I would be pissed and would have wanted Gill too. In fact all of the hires at big programs seem desperate or at least strange on some level. If these coaches truly are less qualified then minority candidates the programs hiring them will suffer as they should. If they end up being successful who will complain. If Auburn wins a national title under Chizik will Barkley be against it, mind you I don't think that will happen.
|7 years 7 weeks ago||Barkley||
I think Barkley is a loud mouth, how's that for going out on a limb. He's the type that feels every evil in the world is caused by racism. He's confusing incompetence for racism. I'm sure a large percentage of the white Auburn alumni and fans are equally pissed off with the hiring.
|7 years 8 weeks ago||Chambers||
I'll miss Chambers only because of an awful joke.
If he ever legally changed his name he'd be the Artis formerly known as Chambers.
Horrible I know, but it will never be remotely topical enough to mention again.
|7 years 10 weeks ago||You're right||
I certainly do desire him to be a fiery competitor. All I'm going by are a few things. Competition in college never worried him. When Newsome was a commit he still flew into town and attended camp. He committed right during his visit of the Utah game. I recall him saying "All I can say is that offense isn't for them, but it's tailor-made for me" in regards to Threet and Sheridan. Maybe he's just cocky, maybe he doesn't pan out, I'm just saying I like what I see from afar!
|7 years 10 weeks ago||2001 Navarre||
Before this year 2001 Navarre stuck out like a sore thumb for worst quarterbacking at UM, I'm speaking Lloyd era not before. I think some athletes just have an intangible competitive edge, I'm avoiding saying Eye of the Tiger, Tate Forcier seems like this type. I think being at that Utah game he was convinced he could start here early. His scrambling ability is legitimate and that could be the difference. I'd be happy if Threet improves and starts. He has great arm strength, but terrible accuracy. Who knows maybe Beaver will start. Brian is right 3 lottery tickets are better than one.
You're right we should temper our expectations, but I feel a lot better about QB next season.
|7 years 10 weeks ago||Where?||
Where is Rich Rod going to go? Another college job isn't likely. Should a big program job open up they won't have interest in him unless he's successful here. This is a good thing as we may have to fight to keep him, but it means we've been a winning program. The NFL! Not likely the track record for college coaches jumping to the NFL isn't good. These are coaches that run pro-style offense and still haven't succeeded. The option is viewed as unfeasible in the NFL. A team would have to really go out on an experimental limb to hire him, with Al Davis who knows. For an NFL team to take a chance the same principal applies. We will need to be successful for them to have any interest.
You're right he could fail, I hate to even think it. If he does fail, speaking hypothetically cause he won't, he would have to take over a small time program. Coaching in a small conference or a lousy team in a big conference would not be a greener pasture.
Brian is absolutely right we need to give coach Rod four or five years. To drive him out early would damage the program horrifically on many levels.
|7 years 10 weeks ago||English||
For all his faults Oregon, App State, USC, and such I liked the way English's defense played better than Shafer's. That being said Louisville is only ahead of Syracuse in pts/g and yds/g in the Big East. I keep holding firm to the Shafer love that GSIMMONS touts. I definitely think it would be foolish to get rid of Shafer, or for RR to micromanage his defense if he doesn't want to run a 3-3-5.
English absolutely has the better name. Any time a big hit, int, or sack occurred you could blurt out "That's Olde English!" or "English 101 Beotch!" I miss this quiet a bit.
|7 years 10 weeks ago||Injury||
I believe Sheridan was injured his senior year of high school. I doubt he would have been a highly regarded recruit or all state, conference, or whatever, but I think I've heard he was injured a few times FWIW.
|7 years 12 weeks ago||Pathetic||
Pathetic like your previous post "WE LED AT ONE POINT FORTY YEARS AGO!"
|7 years 12 weeks ago||Lucky||
Fortunately Jerry Van Dyke was in the hospital and couldn't alert coach Brewster in time.
|7 years 13 weeks ago||Not my Fault||
That's the last time I hire Dan Quayle to edit my comments.
|7 years 13 weeks ago||Normally||
Normally I would say any pro team would beat any college team, and today is no exception. I don't know if the lion coaching staff deserves that level of respect. Here's a hypothetical that I always found interesting. If you could combine the roosters of the two worst NFL teams how would they due. Would they make the playoffs?
|7 years 13 weeks ago||Tough Evaluations||
Evaluating NFL talent is way different this year now that we're bad. I think Graham is a first day pick, hopefully in 2010. Trent will get drafted somewhere based on workouts. Terrence Taylor will probably be a 4th or 5th rounder. Beyond that who knows maybe some will be workout warriors and create some buzz. I think the other non-seniors on the list need to prove more next year. David Cone has a promising future signing and selling baseballs on ebay.
|7 years 13 weeks ago||Don't Worry||
According to the guys in the big 10 network booth Bedford is still coach.
|7 years 13 weeks ago||Nickel||
Why not just run a straight nickel. The D-line has more talent than the linebacking core. Doesn't it make sense to have as many good players on the field at one time as possible?
|7 years 14 weeks ago||That's Logical||
In fact far to logical for a buckeye.
|7 years 14 weeks ago||Fair Enough||
That's a very good example and I admit to knit picking. It actually got me thinking of the great Mister Simpson.
|7 years 14 weeks ago||Tales from the Hood||
Darnell Hood actually played a big special teams role his senior year. Certainly you would expect more, but he played an actual role. The same goes for Jerome Jackson he scored a game winning touchdown against Iowa, he had one memorable game. They shouldn't be lumped in with dolts who did nothing positive like L. Harrison or Magical Max Martin. You do have a good point, but maybe a D category should be added.

It's clear this Fragel doesn't rock.
|7 years 15 weeks ago||The best hit ever!||
Thanks for the Daydrion Taylor video. This remains the hardest hit I've ever seen pro or college. The video actually doesn't do it justice.
