Actually, it looks pretty good.  Check out the link.

While other commenters on here can be jerks about it, I get what you are saying.  There are times where a very successful team loses a game that they shouldn't right before the tournament and that serves as a motivation or helps them refocus.  With that said, I think the correct response is, given the choice, we would all prefer for them to just keep winning and finish the regular season and tournament undefeated.

01/08/2019 - 10:58am 1.  I guess I don't…

1.  I guess I don't understand what "contending" means.  I hear people ask when will we ever contend for a Big 10 title and when will we ever contend for a playoff spot.  Isn't going into the final game of the year with both of those things on the line the definition of contending?  No, we didn't get it done, but we were contending for those goals until the final game.  Also, tired of people talking as if winning a National Title is easy.  How many active coaches have one?  Yes, we need to win a conference title, but people are still talking about getting Michigan "back" to where they once were.  We are "back" to where we once were--top 10 team year in and year out, with a chance at the end.  And yes, I am well aware we still need to beat OSU.  Which brings me to...

2.  Our talent level (and especially depth) is still not above OSU.  It's getting there, but the two deep isn't there yet.  That was evident when we lost started to injury in the final two games. People forget OSU were the heavy favorites to with the conferences and go undefeated until the playoffs.  We were again picked 3rd in our division by most people.  They played below expectations all year and we played above them.  The weaknesses that everyone was worried about in the beginning of the year finally came back to bite us in the end.  

*None of this is to say that the staff doesn't have some work to do and shouldn't have made some adjustments in the big games to help the situation.

Retirement is one thing.  Going to OSU is a completely different beast.

Serious question—Why would he be immediately eligible?  Shea was a totally different situation, but what has happened at Georgia that would permit him to leave and not have to sit a year? What am I missing?

"Rose Bowl is hands down the best bowl location I have been to."  

"However, it's the only location I have ever been to."

All true, but the main reason an NFL contract isn't enough to support them for life is because of the spending habits that they have once they "make it."  Even if you only last a few years and make a couple million dollars total, that is more than most Americans will make in a lifetime.

It's really not safe to have a dog that close to a baby that little.  Bad things can happen.

She was also asked via twitter why not just come out and tell everyone why he's leaving. Her response was just just posted:  "At the end lets take the road less traveled: the high road.  Unless you want to get a panel of all the transfers together and identify the central theme of all the departures and since that will not happen let them speculate."  The central theme comment is interesting.

We all know that the word "selfish" carries with it a negative connotation.  So, while it is possible that this decision fits the definition, it isn't necessarily the best way to characterize these players.  Also, we are all making huge assumptions that these players are only thinking of themselves when we call them selfish.  In many instances, they are also thinking of there family and how this decision can help those around them.  Thus making them anything but selfish.

Just read a tweet from an OSU writer that is actually rational.  Basically said this is nothing.  He didn't come to the presser expecting to give a guarantee.  Was pressed by a reported and said "sure."  Even the OSU writer asked "What is he suppose to say?  No, I don't think we are going to win."  Good for him.  Have confidence.  This talk from Monday will mean nothing on Saturday.

I don't see where it says he's out for a month?  I'm just seeing most likely out for this week against GT.

I forecast about 5 more of these threads before the week is over, and I bet I'm more accurate than the weatherman.

I think Alabama is one of the top 4 teams in the country even if they lose, but it is an interesting point.  Why would a one loss Bama, without a conference championship be automatically in over a one loss Big Ten or Big 12 Champion?  Our resume will surely be better than theirs.

The Over/Under in those Oklahoma vs WVU games has to be close to triple digits.  Great offenses while the defenses sit on the sidelines with a bag of popcorn and a Mr. Pibb.

And they are given up about 600 yards of offense in each of those games.

No thanks.  That is exactly what UCF wants though...and throw in an ND loss for good measure.

Obviously stay healthy, but that is largely beyond our control. 

I know a lot of people want us to go vanilla on offense to not show anything new if it's not needed, but I want to win big--whatever it takes.  I want the playoff committee to continue to see us dominate so there is no lame excuse to have someone jump us in the rankings.  I'd even love to see us take some shots down field so they see we have an offense that can be explosive if necessary.

Clearly no question mark in this thread's title!

Can't lose on a bye week though

Nope.  Bama needs to win out.  A loss by them and they are still in the final 4.  They aren't losing twice.

Sam Webb is not only saying it was an "amicable parting of ways" but he is also saying there is way more to the story than being told.  I'll choose to trust his insight.  Not to mention they are giving the kid more than a year's notice to continue to explore his options.

Stop his video at 53 seconds and tell me how he scores without being touched.  Impressive shiftiness.

I don't give 2 shits about the spread.  Win 3-2 for all I care.  Just please Lord let us win the game!

Got to be honest, I kind of agree.  It just seems like this is setting up to be the typically Sparty pulls another out of its ass victories.  I hope we're wrong.

42 doesn't seem like we easily scored over 40.

I'll buy you dinner if the offense only scores 10 points.

The fact that you figured out that those were dicks is concerning.  If they look similar to yours, you should probably have that checked out.
