re: OSU/Mich delivered the top college football regular season audience in more than 2 years - Buckeye Fan 19 on 12/1/21 at 2:53 pm
[quote]If you're actually attending the game, it makes it challenging because of how early it is, but as a viewer at home, it's awesome. Wake up, make breakfast, run an errand or two, and then bam, 11am cst there is a great game on. I love the Big Noon setup.[/quote] Yes, and any Saturday evening...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: How would you feel about these ND coaches coming to LSU? - Buckeye Fan 19 on 11/29/21 at 11:28 pm
ND fan/alum here. Quinn is terrible. Harry Hiestand (the old OL coach before he went to the Bears) was outstanding, Quinn is not. You don't want him. And so as an ND guy, I hope he goes (Hiestand was let go by the Bears but apparently still lives in South Bend, so I'm hoping whoever our new HC is...

re: Pete Thamel: Brian Kelly to LSU. Could be announced tomorrow. So Fickell to ND? - Buckeye Fan 19 on 11/29/21 at 9:34 pm
[quote]Eh, the recruiting thing is a bit of a canard. It's more difficult to recruit to ND than, say, LSU, but we also have advantages that they and many others don't. Kelly is a good football coach, but I admittedly was never his biggest fan. He is superb at program management, really good at pl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I don't really buy this. That fact is offset by him being able to walk into any Catholic high school in the country and picking the best of the best. ND, for example, recruits the private schools in Ohio better than OSU does. [/quote] The academic standards are overblown. I think South Be...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Lifelong LSU fan, Current senior at ND - Buckeye Fan 19 on 11/29/21 at 5:08 pm
[quote]And I do not see how any of this Kelly stuff is anything but a smokescreen. Every single pep rally here BK is talking about how much is means to be at ND growing up as an Irish Catholic on the East Coast and is credited as making ND relevant again for the first time since the 80s. He also ope...

re: Is there a scenario where UConn is ever good at football again? - Buckeye Fan 19 on 11/25/21 at 11:53 am
They had one year when a 4-loss Big East champ UConn snuck in to the Fiesta Bowl to get blown out by OU in the final years of the BCS when the Big East at that point was a glorified non-BCS conference. Hard to say they were “good” that year. Though that were obviously miles better than they are now....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]They kept Michigan ahead of MSU even after the Spartans squeaked one out. Them putting ND ahead of Cincy isn't out of the question and would actually be correct.[/quote] They didn't put Michigan ahead until MSU lost to Purdue.

re: Bears Fans Are Cold-Blooded, Chants Fire Nagy During Bears Coach's Sons' HS Football Game - Buckeye Fan 19 on 11/23/21 at 5:19 pm
I wouldn't call it "Bears fans". It's more like the Cary-Grove students being trolls. Some are probably Bears fans, some probably aren't, they're just being typical HS boy idiots taunting opposing players.

re: Someone explain to me what OUs path to the playoffs could look like - I just do not see it - Buckeye Fan 19 on 11/17/21 at 12:38 pm
They only need two of these three things to happen: UGA beats Bama Oregon loses Cincinnati loses If Wisconsin wins out, that’ll knock the Big Ten out. If Wisconsin doesn’t win out, the Big Ten champ will stay in, but Oklahoma will vault over ND in that scenario. So that’s basically a wash. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]If those were odds to get into the CFP Invite of Four, then yes, I'd agree good value. But there's no way Cincy or any other G5 team is going to get in and then win back to back games vs. say...Clemson and Alabama.
