  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

My buddy said the same thing - while Michigan looks solid, they look to be average in the speed department.  If this game was at Wisky I'd put some cash on it.  It being played in TSUN makes this one a tough one to call for me.

This.  Dude was one of the best college players ever, and won a playoff game in the NFL!  That doesn't make him Joe Montana, but the guy is a very talented athlete.  And oh now he's got a shot at a baseball career (which he hasn't played in years).  There's a LARGE number of Buckeyes that didn't pan out in the league, for sure.

Agreed. I cannot wait for that Wisky game next week.  Very interested in it.  I really wish TTUN had to go to Madison, though. 

HYPOTHETICALLY, if TTUN were to go down this weekend, they and Sparty would each have a loss and we'd have a leg up on the B1G east race.  If we were to lose to one of them, and aside from that loss all three teams won out, we'd be tied with whoever beat us with one conference loss.  Who would go to the B1G championship game?  I believe the first tie-breaker is their national CFP ranking, and NOT head-to-head results, correct?

EDIT: I'm assuming for a moment that the team we would hypothetically lose to would win the Sparty v. TTUN game, and I guess in the end, then, only us and that one team would have one loss (not all three of us).

But questioning the question marks only adds another question mark to an already very unsure situation.

I remember in our 2014 run, we gave up some big plays, particularly to running backs (see Minnesota, Indiana).  But we shored that up and ended up winning the championship.

This team, similarly, is great already.  But it has some things to shore up, particularly on defense.  O-line is gelling well already.  If the D tightens up, we will be virtually un-beatable.

I thought the same thing about Hooker - that he could potentially be caught biting on a play and be out of position at some point.  If he can remain disciplined, then he will continue to wow us.
