agree except for miss state. they lose then they would possibly drop behind osu, but aub wouldn't with loss
I agree that that this is how it should and it may be in the coaches poll, but no way will the AP voters have those three B1G teams that high. The AP ail have MSU at 9 behind Bama and Ore. TOSU will be 15 behind Zona and A&M, while NEB won't be ranked.
This isn't what I think the rankings should be, but how the voters will have it:
3) Miss State
4) Ole Miss
9) Mich State
15) Ohio State
But TCU and Arizona will jump TOSU.
MSU won't move up in the polls. They will probably stay at #10. OU and A&M will drop behind them, The Mississippi schools will jump them, And the Bama/Oregon will stay ahead of them which means they will still be 10.
You don't think beating a top 5 unbeaten Neb in the conference championship would not do more?
Yep, forgot about that games loser. Also, I think the Buckeyes would have been better off with the Mississippi schools losing
I think beating an unbeaten top 5 ranked Neb in the B1G CG right before the selection committee picks the playoff participants is better.
AP Poll #18/Coaches Poll #17 because of Wisconsin, BYU, Lsu, and Stanford losses with zona and tcu jumping over us.
I looked at who was ahead of ohio state. They should be #14 in the coaches next week and 16 in the AP. That is if they win, and the Mississippi schools and Lsu lose which I believe will happen. Plus the ND/Stanford loser should fall behind them. If the buckeyes keep winning they will be top 10 at the end of October.
actually, the O-line in 2008 sucked. That is one of the reasons that Boeckman was pulled as starter and Tressel went with Pryor.
the OP said that NEB is better than the Buckeyes based on the football he has seen, and barely BEATING a FCS does not make you better.
Nebraska? The same team that barely beat a FCS team?
me too, glad we have 11W because I am staying far away from espn
okay fair enough, I just thought your statement meant 20 or worse
yep, there have been three terrible years since I have been following the buckeyes, '99, '04 and '11. All other years they have been a top 10 team.
2011 was not that long ago where we went from top 15, to top 20, and then out of the polls.
not me… 98 msu, 05 texas, 05 psu, 07 lsu, 08 usc, 08 psu, 08 tex, 09 usc, 10 wisc, 13 msu were worse
basketball IQ verging on genius level
Most overrated thing about Craft. He made plenty of boneheaded mistakes, especially this year, so I would not say that his Basketball IQ was genius level.
i agree that Missouri would have been a better fit than maryland, rutgers, or uconn, but I based my topic on the B1G wanting a NY team and what was the better option
When ET left it was more than just Sully. Diebler, Buford, and Lighty could light it up, too.
I don't get it either.
Next year isn't a rebuilding year. The Buckeye will be fine; I actually think they will be really good next year. Next year looks like 2007 and 2011 all over again to me. We have a mix of upperclassmen and a top 5 recruiting class.
