I don't get why so many of you are polishing Lincoln Riley's nutsack. He's still riding on Stoops's coattails. Have none of you ever heard of Mark Helfrich? He went 11-2 then 13-2 and lost in the NCG, with Chip Kelly's teams. From there, defense started to collapse and he quickly headed for the drain. Back home, Gary Moeller went 29-5-3 with Bo's legacy, then took two consecutive 8-4 dumps before getting canned being a drunk-ass.
OU could easily have finished 7-5 this year had their 4 one-scores (Arena League) wins seen 7-5 luck come their way. Not to mention Riley coaches in possibly the weakest power 5 conference. Please start talking smack about him at the end of 2020.

I think you're showing a bias toward flash and scoring, and against defense. There is no way WSU can beat ND. ND is a team that efficiently grinds out wins by playing good defense and enough offense to win. They're not flashy, but they would clamp down on WSU and probably OU also (look at OU's close calls). Teams like ND that lack pizzazz are so often underestimated. They're schedule has been pretty reasonable, and they've barely been challenged. We were pretty lucky to even be close against them, and didn't really have much shot to win- long shot at best driving to tie at the end. We'd beat them now, 6/10 times. But it takes a lot to be 10-0 when you're ND, and everyone gets up to play you. They are a top 4 team, if not top 2. I think they'd be even odds to beat Clemson.

What's your latest novel called again? I really need to pick up a copy. You're so interesting and profound, yourself, coming on a message board to tell someone else they're trite. Can't wait to hear what you have to say on other topics.
|05/28/2018 - 9:50am||Instead I would like to see how results came out different in||
2016 with fair refereeing.
2006 if the helmet to helmet on Crable (which was an arguably fair call) didn't get called, or he didn't perperate it. Ironically the very same play happened in the USC/UCLA game the next week and didn't get called.
I'd rather see what the team could have done under those variables, than just say "oh, the team won the game". But those variables changed, would make the game more competitive in our favor.
In 2016, I don't think there's much chance we lose if they call the rape of Darboh when we're driving over midfield in the first quarter, the offsides on Hurst after the 2nd INT (making it 1st and 15, instead of 1st and 5) That was an atrocious backwards call by the refs that would have likely led OSU to a FG attempt instead of an easy TD. But the most important horrible call of that game was the late PI on Delano Hill against Curtis Samuel, when OSU was 3rd and long and backed up in their end with like 4 minutes left. That call was absolute garbage and a response to the booing in the crowd. It was perfect defense, and if the ball had been horrible overthrown it would have been easier to see Hill's timing was good. Not even going to mention how we didn't get the same call in OT.

You clearly get it. Stay classy!

Part of any contract should be that he change his name to Matt America, or Matt F.N. American.

a real event of a monk setting fire to himself to protest human rights abuses, to symbolize a football coaching search. Next time I would suggest burning couches, tires or dumpsters.
|03/28/2017 - 1:22pm||I am quite looking forward to Mattison coaching our tremendous||
D-Line talent for 11 games before the Buckeyes visit. Barrett can't throw, Weber is one of the most overrated players in the conference, and Samuel is gone. Last year Barrett got spooked and stayed spooked, and needed the refs to bail him out. Nothing about their offense or their OL specifically (which was slaughtered by our DL) makes me believe that the same thing won't happen again compliments of Hurst, Gary, Mone and an up-and-coming cast. Low-scoring, defensive game, with the hire of Greg Frey being the difference in crunch-time.

It may look like you describe if the scene is appreciated as 2-dimensional. But the shot is from a negative angle of at least 15 degrees back from the play. Now, use your mind to rotate 15 degrees forward. If number 88 is your point of revolution, rotate 15 degrees to the left in your mind. If you do this, you can clearly see that it's short. It really isn't even close, he barely gets into the yellow with the ball up by his shoulder/chest. Not even close. Ref looking down the line should have seen that. But he clearly knew where his bread was buttered.
