Unfortunately, I think that our "Clearly we were one of the best 4 teams last year" moments weren't shown until Ann Arbor and the Fiesta Bowl. Had we performed similarly to those games for the bulk of the season, then I'm on board with that comment.

I'd have to go with Troy for what he did in 3 consecutive seasons, but let's not forget the OG who first made beating M*chigan the cool thing to do... 

Comment 18 Nov 2016

I don't believe he led us in tackles in a season, but he did finish his first full season with 6 INTs, so he wasn't exactly a slouch there either. I, too, remember Bell a bit differently than the OP. I think most school's would kill to have had a Vonn Bell in their secondary... we've been blessed with a Bell and now a Hooker.

Oh, for sure... my point was simply that if those things were to happen, we'd basically be sitting pretty. You know, assuming we go in and crush TSUN next weekend.

For anyone who doesn't simply want to "let the chips fall as they may," and feels that their own fandom and cheering can impact the outcome of the games, here's a quick and extensive viewer's guide to Week 12 and what OSU needs to have happen in order to make the College Football Playoffs (my own subjective opinion). 

In order of importance (I think):

Ohio State beats MSU (12pm)
Rutgers beats PSU (8pm - yep, for real, it's a night game)
Oklahoma beats WVU (8pm)
Houston beats U of L (8pm, 11/17)
Wake Forest beats Clemson (7pm)
Arizona State beats Washington (7:30pm)
Wisconsin beats Purdue (12pm)
Nebraska beats Maryland (12pm)

Meh. I hate them with the burning hatred of 1000 suns, but they've beaten 3 teams currently ranked in the top 15. Doesn't matter to me, and I doubt if the Rose Bowl committee will hold it against them either.

Nope, 11W had an article about them a while ago. Pretty crazy look, but not bad. I prefer the black unis from last year, but to each their own.

I know you said that there would be no debate about best game, but I guess it depends on what we're going for. Did you mean the closest/most suspenseful game? Or the team's best performance? To me, what we did in Norman made that the best game so far this year. Sure, Wisconsin was closer, but we dismantled OU at their house.

Regarding JT as the MVP, I compared his current numbers to his amazing 2014 campaign through 6 games, and he's not that far off. At this time in 2014, he was completing 65% of his passes (63.2% now), had thrown for 1615 yards (1,207 yards now), had run for 383 yards (434 yards in 2016), and had 24 total touchdowns (vs. 22 now). Also, it's worth noting that he had a loss already in 2014, not that we really need that reminder, and that the schedule thus far has been vastly superior to 2014's start.

Nice article, Tim!

59-13... I think we start early and don't let off the gas at all until late in the 4th, and even then McCall hits pay dirt on a long run.
