I glanced at RCMB after the OSU game and it was pretty tame.  Sparty still believes they can ride their defense to a sweep of the Legends division and a return spot in the B1G Championship.  When they lose in Ann Arbor in a couple of weeks, things will get much spicier, I'm sure.

If Brian mentioned RCMB in TWIS every time they deserved it, it would look like he was obsessing on them.  I liked it better when everybody just laughed at MSU while they pounded their fists and screamed, "will somebody please pay attention to me."

RE: Coach, are our players to dumb to run your offense?


And really, before cursing the luck gods for Rich's programs, didn't we have 2008 Wisconsin to fill the Okie State role of beating a team that's supposed to be really good but is really average and feel glorious at the time but looking back is a bit more "meh"?

I liked the pic of the giant Jim Leavitt cutout.  Many USF fans realized that Leavitt was getting a raw deal when he was fired.  Remember, that was the year when the "cool" way to get rid of football coaches was to accuse them of misconduct, thus freeing the schools of paying the full buyouts.

The USF administration thought that Leavitt wasn't going to be the coach to lead them to elite status, but they didn't have a lot of money in the budget to pay off his contract.  They wanted to get rid of him in the worst way, and that's exactly what they did.  Now, fans are beginning to realize that Leavitt's perecieved "ceiling" may have had more to do with personnel than personalities.  

In the case of USF, it's simple.  Until they have a roster of players who also received FSU and Florida offers, they aren't going to compete with the likes of FSU and Florida.  Every year, USF manages to get one or two players who had an offer from one of the "big boys."  That isn't nearly enough.  

Firing Jim Leavitt and hiring Skip Holtz hasn't really done anything except replacing an (occasionally) exciting offense with a boring one.

I would suggest going all out and getting the Bruichladdich XVII since it both tasty and will absolutely negate the taste of the bucket.
