ESPN College Football Live Roundtable: Ohio State At No. 20 For 2012

UrbzRenewel informed me that only a couple of paragraphs and a link should be posted, so here is the edited entry.

ESPN is not shy when it comes to their lovefest with the SEC and hatred of Ohio State and the B1G. Nobody can convince me otherwise on either account — period, end of story.

So, as an Ohio State football fan and blogger, you won't be too surprised to know that I'm not a huge fan of ESPN — quite the opposite most of the time, in fact — however, I was surprised at their recent feature on, and ranking of, the Buckeyes for the upcoming 2012 season.

I think we can assume a lot of their "attitude change" toward tOSU has plenty to do with former ESPN college football analyst Urban Meyer, who is now in his first season in Columbus.

If and only if you want to read the full, original BlockONation blog article, click here.

Nobody is begging for hits or web traffic, and certainly not forcing you to click the link. Do so only if you want to read the article and watch the Roundtable video.

Otherwise, if you do not want to visit BlockONation, then don't -- HD

Come on man, don't spam your own website's content and link here. Sigh.

I put the ENTIRE article here, not a tiny snippet and link....
And the link was only added if you want to watch the video since I couldn't embed it here.
Isn't that what the blog format here on 11W is for???

Don't you have your own website ('blog") where you posted it...? That's all I'm saying.
Your sig, article, and link seem designed to run hits to your website. Just a thought. If I wanted to read the article, I'd go to your site.
The blog was designed for community members to write in long form, not for competing blogs to repost content (or so I thought?). That's up to Jason and the mods. Just my opinon.

I'm not going to argue with you, it's not my fight. But there is this from the new commenting thingy...

Do not copy and paste entire articles from other sources. Limit your copypasta to a couple of paragraphs, if possible, and include a link to the source.

I don't know about you guys, but that "Roundtable" looked pretty damn square, (or rectangular) to me. False advertising!

Whats with all the bickering about what people post and "teacher's pet" like behavior telling people what they can and can't post?! Smh... If the people that run this website have a problem, then let them deal with it. I just wanna talk OSU sports, isn't that what this site is for? Relax guys...Sheez

Exactly Silverbullet, same here. Thanks for your comment!
If Alex, Jason, or anyone else that has content regulation here wants this post removed, they can certainly do so. Also, I've contacted them before about contributing here so they have my email, and they can email me if they prefer I don't post (or I'm sure they can "ban" people if they so desire), and then I would respect their wishes.

Perhaps if you've had any experience in the past with this HD guy you may understand a little more...

Personally I was happy to see this post  I would have missed the story otherwise.

Yes there are two Buckeyes in Ann arbor on this site!

I think #20 is a fair ranking.  I wasn't sure how the rankings were going to work for us since we're on a bowl ban.  Wouldn't USC have been a top 5 or 10 team last year if they weren't on bowl ban?  I remember them being unranked, with my guess of logic being that a bowl banned team shouldn't waste a spot in the polls for the purposes of using the polls to rank teams that can go to bowls. 

Class of 2010.

It doesn't waste a spot in the polls because polls that are significant in the BCS formula do not allow teams not bowl eligible to be voted on.  This is ESPN's "potential" best teams of 2012, it has nothing to do with actual rankings or bowl eligibility.
