Good writeup. However, OSU is the defending B1G champ, not PSU. Also, for as dominant as Nickal has been in folkstyle, he's nothing special in freestyle. Last I saw him wrestle in freestyle he was getting thrown around by Nick Heflin and should have been called for the fall if the female ref knew what she was doing. There is no way Nickal will be representing the US in 2020. He would either have to drop down and challenge Dake/Burroughs/Taylor or bump up to challenge Snyder/Cox. I can't see him beating any of those wrestlers in freestyle.
It is weird that for how dominant PSU has been, their wrestlers dominance has not extended into freestyle. Taylor finally won a world title this past year, and that's about it.

There are a lot of programming boot camp courses that have popped up, both live and online that teach website development, iOS app development, etc in 3-6 months. Some don't charge tuition and will take their fees out of the first job the student lands. If your BIL has any interest in computers and programming, something to look into.

What point guards are doing well in the NBA that Michigan can point to? OSU can highlight Mike Conley, though not developed by Holtman.
|01/18/2019 - 1:12am||I would think this time…||
I would think this time around he'd be more concerned about the inner workings of Oregon, Washington, and UCLA. It was cool that Hoke opened the doors and let him in the henhouse during his last health scare.
|01/08/2019 - 2:06am||He's gone. Will be announced…||
He's gone. Will be announced as OSU lb coach and recruiting coordinator tomorrow.
|12/21/2018 - 6:58pm||Definitely fishy things…||
Definitely fishy things going on there at UT. 5* Darnell Wright had a strong interest in OSU but suddenly didn't, and lo and behold UT emerged as his leader. Pruitt and Smart have learned well from Saban how to work it.
|12/21/2018 - 10:50am||Your statement is ironic…||
Your statement is ironic considering that Michigan got caught in one of the biggest if not the biggest pay for play scandal with the Fab 5 (yes different sport, but still) while OSU's worst has been Troy Smith and his $500 cell phone bill.
|12/19/2018 - 11:37pm||The having to sit out one…||
The having to sit out one year rule is idiotic. Coaches jump around and don't have to sit out a year. I wish some lawyer would sue the NCAA over it. At least the NCAA removed most of the transfer restrictions.
|12/04/2018 - 10:38am||OSU fan here. This isn't…||
OSU fan here. This isn't surprising. Am surprised he didn't announce this immediately after the B1G title game because I think there was a chance the committee would have given him the Tom Osborne sendoff and put OSU in the playoffs for one last epic Meyer v. Saban showdown (tied at 2-2 now). Meyer could have even had Scott Frost beg for him saying what a "great man" he is and he deserves that chance at a title.
|12/03/2018 - 7:44pm||I'm an OSU fan and I think…||
I'm an OSU fan and I think the Rose bowl is meaningless. It's playoffs or bust. Does anyone care or remember that we beat USC last year? Hopefully more star players sit out the bowls and no one goes or watches so this whole system gets blown up and we get to a 8 team playoffs sooner than later.
|11/21/2018 - 12:31pm||I'm an OSU fan and yes in…||
I'm an OSU fan and yes in football we've had it good, never suffering an extended period of misery or even mediocrity. However, when you consider most OSU fans are also fans of the Cleveland pro teams in the overall fanhood success/misery scale there has been more misery than success.
|02/13/2018 - 6:29pm||OSU||
OSU is now #2 in all time winning percentage.
Michigan (.72914) and Ohio State (.72510). Notre Dame (72422).

I've heard that it is a lot easier to pirate software on a mac. Mac pirate sites don't embed virus and spyware and jack your browser like PC sites. Also, Mac resale value is very good. I've never failed to get less than a $1000 when I've resold my Macbook Pro's after 4 years of use.

|01/19/2018 - 12:37pm||Steinbrenner||
Steinbrenner was a Williams alum who loved OSU football. Good guy. Met him once at a Williams alum event in NYC in the early 00's and asked him about signing Henson. He just chuckled, wouldn't give an answer.
|01/19/2018 - 12:33pm||Weak||
The topic is football. OSU is kicking UM's butt right now in it. Someone could say they'd rather have a Stanford or Duke degree than a UM degree and it would also be irrelevant when discussing the quality of their respective football teams.
|01/19/2018 - 12:24pm||As probably the lone Williams||
As probably the lone Williams alum to post on this board, I have to correct you on that. Williams has an excellent football program. Of course it is only Division 3, but Williams has had many recent undefeated seasons. Also unlike UM, Williams beats its rival often.
|01/19/2018 - 2:43am||Context fo his quote||
He was asked by a 247 reporter at the Polynesian Bowl practices if he was talking trash with UM TE commit Mustapha Muhammad and Ruckert said there was no reason to talk trash because it wasn't a rivalry.
|01/01/2018 - 12:16am||Browns and Lions were||
the 2 dominant teams of the NFL in the 1950's, with each winning 3 NFL titles. Lions holding a 3-1 edge over the Browns in head to head meetings in the title game. Only 2 non-expansion teams to never have made the Super Bowl. Now both linked in 0-16 infamy. What a fall from the heights they enjoyed in the 1950's.
|11/25/2017 - 5:38pm||As an OSU fan, my opinion is||
As an OSU fan, my opinion is JT Barrett sucks. He can't complete a pass under pressure and holds the ball all day. Any qb in Meyer's system is going to put up huge numbers running the ball. The OSU offense is going to look so much better next year with Haskins as qb. He isn't as good a runner as JT, but he has 10x the passing ability.
|11/14/2017 - 2:46pm||What about the Vols throwing||
What about the Vols throwing a ton of cash at Franklin? Would be hilarious to see PSU scramble for a head coach again.

|11/11/2017 - 3:37pm||MSU '15||
Sparty beating that OSU team in a monsoon and getting in over them was a crock, regardless of beating a crappy Iowa team in the B1G championship game. The committe, if it truly were using "best team" criteria should have put OSU in over MSU. 15 was the year that a non-conference champ OSU should have gone to playoffs, not 16. That 15 team with Bosa and Zeke would have beaten eventual champ Alabama.

Colts must really want Jacoby Brisset's blood on the field.
|10/28/2017 - 9:51pm||SEC||
Why is everyone assuming Alabama is in even if it loses to UGA in the SEC title game? Alabama has beaten no one of note. The teams that are ranked in the SEC besides UGA are a joke; it is the SEC bias of the media ranking everyone so they can claim a tough schedule. It is a joke that LSU is still ranked after losing to Troy.

Does anyone feel bad that it looks like Mike Weber lost his starting spot to Dobbins because of injury? Pretty lousy luck for the kid.
|09/16/2017 - 6:34pm||Comcast||
Here in Atlanta I told comcast to phuck off as soon as I got Google Fiber. Comcast charges $200 for 1 gigabit service while Google Fiber charges $70. I was paying $75 for comcast's 150mb service. I dont pay for an tv service. I go to reddit's college football stream forum where there is a HD link 90% of the time for any game I want to watch.
|09/12/2017 - 12:29pm||He should have owned that by||
He should have owned that by saying something funny like "I was honoring our troops by reenacting Iwo Jima". Instead, he went all Hoke. Went from badass to pussy in an instant.
|09/10/2017 - 12:55pm||This OSU team is trash. The||
This OSU team is trash. The secondary is a sieve, the linebackers play out of position, the wide receivers don't know how to run routes, and of course JT Barrett can't throw. Honestly, if Harbaugh can't win this year he may never beat OSU.
|09/10/2017 - 12:26am||Meyer needs to wake up about||
Meyer needs to wake up about JT. Opposing coaches like Saban, Dabo, and Allen have said he's just an average QB. Meyer thinks JT is Tebow but Tebow actually won 2 titles and was a better passer. JT's "leadership" consists of him yelling in the locker room and getting a DUI.
|09/09/2017 - 12:25pm||Paterno was scum||
Paterno acted like he was better than the coaches of his day like Switzer, but in reality he was far worse. Turning a blind eye to child rape to win football games.
As an OSU fan I think one thing that all OSU and UM fans can agree on is that the PSU loons that continue to defend Paterno are sick fvcks. I would have no problem kicking PSU out of the B1G and replacing them with Pitt. How PSU escaped the death penalty is a mystery, as the NCAA was far too lenient on them.
|09/07/2017 - 1:48pm||Dobbins speed||
Supposed 4.42 in the 40. Didn't look that fast vs IU.
|09/06/2017 - 12:25pm||An OSU fan's view||
Don't have hate for any team, as its just a game. These are the teams I enjoy seeing lose in order:
1. PSU - Its fans are annoying in many ways. Before Sandusky, the fans were always talking about "the grand experiment" and how PSU was so superior to every other school out there. I always viewed PSU as a good state school, about the same as every other state school in the B1G besides UM. Never saw it as anything special. After Sandusky, the fanbase's irrational defense of pedophile enabler Paterno puts PSU firmly at #1. The school should have received the death penalty.
2. UM - Obvious reasons. Though in the 90's I would say the "intense dislike" was a lot more when UM actually would win vs. OSU. However, have always respected the school and the rivalry. Have many relatives and friends who've attended the school.
3. ND - The online fans are dickwads who have a superiority persona even though 99% never attended the school. The alums I've met in real life have been chill. Also, when they are good the media hypes them up to no end.
4. Alabama - This school has cheated for so long, even pre-Saban (look up Albert Means scandal). I know, everyone kills, everyone cheats, etc etc., but Bama takes cheating to another level. Even though there have been tons of pics of players with wads of cash, player parking lot full of expensive cars, that shady Arab clothing store owner giving away suits, the car accessory store giving away dubs, even a coach giving a player cash and when caught calling it a loan, they get away with it all and the media never investigates.
5. Amherst College - Most alums I've met from this school have been haughty pricks.
That's it. Don't have any strong feelings about any other school. Though MSU is starting to get annoying.
