In the short life of the playoff era, it seems it matters a great deal when teams lose. For this reason, I disagree with those who say the Bucks had their shot and blew it.
While we were losing as time expired in the rain, Bama was playing Georgia Southern and Florida was playing FAU. I think this matters because of the importance placed on when a team loses. While other conferences are deep into conference play, the SEC is playing a warm up to Rivalry Week. Instead of plating their 'cupcakes' when everyone else does, they begin conference play early in the season and thus, can overcome a loss.
I know the play calling was suspect and we didn't play our best, but saying we were not one of the four best teams based on the MSU game is ludicrous and I'm pretty sure the games that have been played support that statement.
Winning cures a lot.
Keep improving, stay winning, finish the season strong and these things work themselves out.
Cft just reported his agent is calling teams to report he is switching to receiver.
I, for one, am excited to see how this goes!
A ttun fan was arguing over at cft that this was the result of quality control.
If 'delusional' were a sport, I'd agree they are by far, the winning-est program of all time.
This is perhaps the only situation my little heart could bear. I love Braxton. I love Ohio State. I HATE the idea of having to love them separately.
Of course I wish Brax the best and want him in a position to completely maximize his talents. I just want him to do it for the team I love.
If he's not a Buckeye, then Houston would be the best scenario from a fan perspective. It makes them easier to love separate.
I'll take a Braxton at Houston Heisman and a repeat National Championship for the Buckeyes before I'd have to endure beating Braxton in the Championship game. With a Bama, Ducks or FSU type place, that could happen.
Just a thought.
I'd like to see some Joshua Perry / This guy side-by-side transformation pictures. I remember when Perry posted a series of photos showing how the weight and training program at Ohio State transformed his body. Both appear to have, uh, transformed.
*Full disclosure: Trey's mom was mean to me in high school. This in no way has influenced this #take
So I checked out the tow company's Yelp page.
Yikes. There is definitely something up. Read some of the ones that didn't make it as 'preferred' comments.
I thought she was an arrogant entitled bitch when I watched the video. After the comments on Yelp I watched it again. Granted, she may very well be a raging arrogant bitch, BUT context is important...
I lost my father in 1997. I was so fortunate, then and now, to be present as they each passed - I'm so grateful to have been there.
That's amazing. Thank you for that.
Just want to say your condolences mean the world to me. I can't thank each of you enough for being like family to me during the most difficult time of my life.

No, it IS about texting and driving. It's called Inattention Blindness. This means that your eyes do not necessarily tell your brain what you are seeing, but rather your brain tells your eyes what to look for.
I own a traffic school and I teach this daily. I show a video of people in different colored uniforms passing a basketball and ask them to count the number of times one team passes. A man in a giant bear suit moonwalks thru the middle AND NO ONE SEES IT. This is bc the brain is busy telling the eyes to count the passes. Same when you are looking at your phone's keyboard and glancing back at the road.
Also impacts your reaction time in collision avoidance. At 40mph your car is moving 60 feet per second. That's moving from the 20 yard line on a football field to the 40. Thus looking away for 'one second' moves you this far - Inattention Blindness aside Texting and driving KILLS. It's most definitely NOT an acquired skill of an individual.
Just posting the word on the street here in PCB. I've heard from people who were there it was UT fans. Then heard the thing about Ole Miss. Again, purely disgusting no matter who/what.
My daughter is a college student and home for Spring Break. She avoids the beach partly bc apparently the only time it's 'socially acceptable' to jump someone is during Break. It would seem the social fabric is desperately in need of a surger.
Dang, where was I? Sorry for the 'breaking' news alert, lol.
Just saw it today. I live here on the beach and this is by far my least favorite time of the year.
Now I'm hearing some talk that some Ole Miss fans paid these guys to do it?
Vols, Rebs, whoever. That's taking football too far.

He forgot to add 'In September'.
Good luck young man.
Next man up.
Bay County? Me too! Didn't know I had an 11W brother in the same town!
I have a watch like this. I always thought it was strange and just figured the watchmaker was trying to be cute.
Well poo. Just when I started to get all warm and fuzzy to Nike, you tell me this. First I was a little offended, but, hell should I even he surprised?
Then I realize, they just trolled themselves. Lol. They are the 'they' they are talking about.
Wow. I was around theses here parts when admission to the PL was only 1000 stickers! My, the times they are a'changin.
Although I post in spurts it seems, I've been reading content every day since the beginnig. I mean, the BEGINNING of the beginning.
That's why I hang out in the Ultimate Premium Lounge.
While my gut tells me he's leaving (sadly, this is recent as I had once strongly believed he was staying, I disagree he is transferring. I think he enters the draft if anything. If he does by chance transfer, it's like I said above, to audition for the NFL. Why risk injury during another college season and zero NFL dollars when you can go now and set up a future with just one NFL contract. Use the money right, and that's a pretty good start for a young father.
Just win the whole damn thing. Sure would soften the blow of Braxton leaving for everyone.
Wishful Buckeye thinking has me clinging to the words of his father (which he did not correct in any way, so unless or until he uses this as an out, they are his words).
Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe the IG post was really about being frustrated he already said he is coming back yet people keep questioning him.
I really want to believe that. I know we got some challenging folks in our fan base, so I can only imagine living under that microscope, but there are more of us than them and as a fan of Miller I sure would like to hear a little reassurance.
My worst nightmare is last we lose the NC and then Braxtons decision doesn't go our way. Talk about a gut punch. Braxton can be all Buckeye, but he has to be a father first. If he makes a decision to move on, I promise it's for that reason and that reason alone. Imagine his draft stock if he's not the starter next season. I'm afraid the letdown of losing the NC would get taken out on Brax and his well deserved legacy. Buckeye Nation loves and loses feverishly, so if both the NC and Braxton are lost the bitterness will flow in a single direction.
Braxton is a Buckeye for life no matter what school he uses to audition for the NFL. Try to remember that if/when he leaves.
