Re: Urban Meyer To Retire........

The thing people are forgetting is that Meyer is 54. He could leave the game almost totally for around a decade and then come back. I don't see him sitting out for a year or two and getting back in the game. He seems like he has some real health problems. Effects might fade away or diminish over tim...

Re: Vegas Opens With Alabama and Clemson......

I said it before, I liked Bama 63-42. But I actually liked how Oklahoma played on defense in the Big 12 championship. Maybe they keep the Tide around 50. So, 50-42 :lol:

I think Kyler will be effective against Bama. He has it in him to play an amazing game.

Re: Haskins

I think he should leave. Not because I'm a Michigan fan :lol: Buckeyes have Tate Martell in the wings anyway. QB class is weak next year. It's the right spot. I think the only QB that would be considered ahead of Haskins right now is Herbert, and I'd project Haskins to be a much better pro than Herb...

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

At least with the BCS, you could lock out Alabama on a technicality. :lol:

If you put any Alabama team since 2008 into a 4-team playoff, they could have won it.

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

I was going to say what you said, Spence, about the playoff system cementing the dynasties, but I thought that it was trending that way prior to the playoff. Bama and Ohio State were winning at unprecedented rates (save for Donovan's Boise State, which is a can of worms unto itself :lol: ). I would ...

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

I really hope Scott Frost and Chip Kelly turn their programs into machines soon. The college universe depends on these two. Nobody else has a chance to make a seismic impact right now, outside of maybe Tom Herman or Jimbo Fisher. HarFraud isn't it, Taggart has zero chance, Mullen is good-not-great, ...

Re: Week 13 Elucidations

We really need some new blood in college football. And by "new blood," I mean, "the same 4 or 5 programs need to get back on the upswing and challenge Alabama and Clemson." USC, where are you at? Texas? LSU? Oregon? Florida? Somebody have a come-from-nowhere-all-the-pieces-actual...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

But NOOOOOOOOO, that will never happen. Don't listen to Eric's recommendations on coaching which have about an 80% success rate :lol: I can't predict football games but I have a nose for which coaches will be good and which will be duds. For example, what is Dana Dimel doing at UTEP? Why did ECU fir...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

I'm just throwing this name out here and remember where you heard it: Scott Abell. He's the head coach at Davidson. Took a bad team and went 6-5 with them. Comes out of D3 with a consistently good winning record. Davidson averaged 414 yards rushing per game this season. Sounds like something Central...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

-- Okay, Eric ... we know what you think about Michigan. But, what on earth happened to Central Michigan this year? . . . Injuries :lol: I wasn't a big John Bonamego guy when he was hired, but his first three years were productive. Maybe Michigan will hire him as a special teams coordinator because...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

I mean I don't like it, but I'm prepared for this result every year and it's borderline comical at this rate :lol: I also get the impression that Urban doesn't view this as a big rivalry. I think outwardly he pays the series respect and tries very hard to get his team ready and motivated to play bec...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

Zach Gentry (redshirt senior) was another guy that came up huge today. Another fake NFL prospect. He was converted from QB and he's the guy we rely on to make do-or-die catches in a game of this magnitude. Meanwhile Ohio State has true freshmen who have barely played that make catches and run up and...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

When Michigan screws up, Harbaugh fundamentally blames the players. Watching his reaction to his players' screw-ups, his body language tells me that he feels he needs to coach them harder to be perfect. Any smart college coach has the probability of failure factored into the way they call games. You...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

Thanks for the words, but that's exactly what we're tired of hearing. One year, it's "Harbaugh needs his guys." Next year with a great defense loaded with NFL prospects, it's "Harbaugh just needs a QB." Last year it was, "Harbaugh's team had injuries and they're young."...

Re: Ohio State -TTUN

I think Notre Dame has earned their way in. They play way better defense than Oklahoma.

In terms of matchups against Alabama as #1 vs. #4, if the goal is seeing Alabama get beat, I'd rather see Oklahoma get the nod.
