  1. Tom Herman Says Suh Should Have Won Heisman

    He is not incorrect
  2. Nebraska / Oklahoma Rivalry

    I used to have a picture of the one I referenced, but I can't find it now. That one was great! The other one I really liked was a picture of a shovel with the caption "Bury Switzer".

    They had a drop off when Switzer left, too. It's nothing new. Oklahoma isn't currently at the pinnacle that Nebraska was at when Osborne left so maybe the drop off won't be as bad as you are expecting. Also, some schools can actually handle a succession plan correctly or they can just get plain lucky. I don't think I know of a school that hasn't had a drop off after a very successful coach leaves a team A few schools have managed to keep rolling but overall I think you are correct. Oklahoma, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Florida State, Oregon, Kansas State to name a few all dropped off for some period of time after a very strong HC Retired or was fired. Outside one year with Luke Fickell as head coach at OSU when was the last time OSU didn't have a HOF coach? Answer, you need to reach back to the 1950s. I only bring this up because Oklahoma may be able to pull this off and not have much of a drop off like some other schools have seen. Just because places like Nebraska made mistakes in transition doesn't mean that all schools will do the same. Is John Cooper a HOF coach? He wasn't bad, but I don't remember him being THAT good. Yes, 2008. Thanks. I remember him as a guy that beat the teams he was "supposed to beat", but struggled against top 10-ish competition, especially Michigan.

  5. Could probably put many of the top-ranked battles, but two that were ho-hum games that I remember really enjoying are '83 @Minnesota and '95 Arizona State.
  6. Bob Stoops Retiring

    Will be interesting to see how this impacts the BigXII til their GOR expires. Will OU remain a top national team? Might OSU take their place? Might this vault UT back to national prominence? Might it become it UT and the nine dwarfs?
  7. Should Nebraska/Iowa Stay on Black Friday?

    You could say that about any "rivalry" game. When USC is 7-5 and UCLA is 5-7, does anyone consider it appointment TV? In the 90s, did anyone outside of Bama/SEC care about Bama/Auburn?
  8. Trap Game ??

    By traditional definition of trap game, that would be the one game that would qualify.
  9. Husker Football Entering Precarious Period

    This quote from the article is pretty much where I'm at: I like how Riley is building his NU program. Who's out there thats gonna walk right in and turn us into Saban's Bama or Meyer's OSU? We'd all love for Frost to be the next Osborne, but what are those odds?
  10. Stanley Morgan Jr. arrested on felony drug charge

    I guess I'll never understand why the desire to smoke trumps every other line of reasoning.
  11. Fightin' Erstads at the Big Ten Tournament

    This is a frustrating game to watch. Get guys on and can't do crap with 'em. Much different from what we've recently seen from these guys.
  12. Fightin' Erstads at the Big Ten Tournament

    If you are the home team in the opener, you are usually the visitor in the 2nd game. Or, they did a coin flip before the game. Interesting. Thanks
  13. Fightin' Erstads at the Big Ten Tournament

    Curious, why is the higher seed not the "home" team?
  14. I expected the drop, though one could make an argument they should've stayed. Although I don't agree with Mandel's reason about not being mentioned among the top B1G programs, unfortunately, about 15 years have passed of poor to decent NU football. Regarding history, no doubt we're Kings. Regarding past 15 years, we're not even Barons. I do think Miami is getting too much credit for only a 20-year span of their history (and location I guess). Penn State deserves to be Kings. They've not been great for the past 20 years, but they've had seasons here and there where they've finished near the top.
  15. The Last Time a Team West of the Mississippi Won A National Title...

    I'm sure I saw football before this, but the first I can remember is the Clemson Orange Bowl. Would've been almost 9. Next season I remember watching the screw job against PSU, but the game that really hooked me was '82 NU/OU game. Was watching with relatives, and the house went nuts when Strasburger picked off that pass. I remember the camera shaking and oranges flying on the field. It was awesome. Haven't since missed a game either in person, tv, or radio.
