Well, I got to go on my second trip to the Rose Bowl this past year so I'm hoping for more of that same success to continue on. Wisconsin should still be pretty good. The main concern will be replacing Tolzien at QB but we have some guys that may be alright. Other than that, same old stuff. We return 3 of our 5 offensive lineman (even though the two we lose are All-Americans) and two of our three awesome RBs, and we actually get to keep the better two in Montee Ball and James White. Plus we have some young RB that we redshirted who is supposed to be unbelievable. Who knows. With injuries and everything you never know what anyone will have.
One key return for Sconnie is on defense though. Chris Borland who was out for the last season with a knee injury returns and he is a freak. He started as a true freshman and was the best member of a strong defense.
On a side note: I was at the Ohio St. @ Wisconsin game this past year also and it was one of the best sports experiences of my life. If you ever are in Wisconsin around that time of the year, I suggest you try getting to Camp Randall for a game.
i'm a huge auburn fan and im wondering how the university is gonna handle it. can't believe someone would do this. i now they arent allowing the trees to be rolled anymore as of now. sucks. AND it is NOT true that the students rolled toomers after the bear died.....completely false
I'm an Alabama fan and I also think that guys is a complete retard and asshole. It now sucks for Alabama as well because we have to get punished for that guy's stupid mistake. Every team has their retards, but no one should act like he did.
Good. Sure, I hate Auburn and everything, but it's only on the field. I love to joke to Auburn fans about my distaste for Auburn football, but it ends outside the game. Someone taking it to those extremes is sad.
They gained some great recruits and they were already good, so it'll be interesting to see what they can do with it over the next year or so. As long as they kick the shit out of Miami, they've done their part in my book.
im probably gonna finish my college at FSU so im excited. i cant afford out of state tuition to go to auburn and the military only pays the max in state tuition of the state your a resident of. i'll be ok though lol my gfs at fsu.
You know... I see programs about the rampant cheating in the past and think that things have changed in the modern era... then I see things like Tressel, Newton, and the Oregon/Texas high school consultants crap (to which my school is also apparently linked) and realize that the whole system is still just an awful corrupt mess.
Now don't get me wrong, I think the punishment to the players is bullshit. To my knowledge, if I'm not mistaken, the players took some of their property and exchanged them for tattoos. It wasn't stolen property. It wasn't the school's property, it was theirs. Their rings, their awards, their jerseys, and exchanged them.
If I took my Xbox and exchanged it for a tattoo no one would say shit. But all of a sudden these guys are in trouble? Why? Because they're athletes? That's bullshit if you ask me. They should be able to do whatever they want with their property.
Now, my qualms with the rule aside, they should be punished for breaking the rule, even if it is a bullshit rule. And he knew about the violations way before it got reported. He should be fired.
My problem is how Tressel tried to explain why he didn't report to anybody. He said something about how he was thinking of his players and not about the NCAA, which I think is total bullshit. That two game suspension is a joke. Bruce Pearl got 8 conference games for self-reporting his own recruiting violations. I know it's basketball, but I would like to point out a few things:
1. Pearl's punishment is harsher because it was in conference and Pearl missed a higher percentage of games (16.7% to 25.8%) including Pearl missing half his conference games. 2. Pearl came clean, while people had to catch Tressel 3. IMO Tressel hiding violations about his players is worse than Pearl's recruiting violations.
I don't think Tressel should be fired, just receive a really stiff punishment.
