Although Brown is a solid receiver, he would normally be a #3 or #2 type option for us. Not trying to dis our only reliable WR, just in comparing him to other #1 options at OSU, he is not nearly at that level yet. 

Comment 16 Oct 2016

True freshman aside I disagree. I don't think we have any WRs that will be round 1-3 draft picks on our roster. We have some fast guys who are not particularly special WRs. 

Comment 11 Oct 2016

We get one bogie in the first 11 games. Winning at OU means we preserved it for B1G play. Winning at UW means we preserve it for the next 5 games. Don't think we will need it then, but good to save it just in case. No way we lose 2 of the next 5 so a win this Saturday means the UM game is essentially our first playoff play in game.

2 teams from the same conference can make it in. In the first 2 years of the playoff there have been no final week upsets. This will not continue forever. All it would take to create some chaos and possible allow 2 teams from 1 conference is one of the following in the conference championship games:

B1G West beats B1G East

SEC East beats SEC West

Pac South beats Pac North

ACC Coastal beats ACC Atlantic

If just 1 of those happen we have some chaos. You could easily have a 3 loss conference champ who will not get into the playoff.

This just in - Ohio State is tied for #1 in punting average this year at 50.6 yards per punt!

Unfortunately Cameron does not appear on this list of FBS punting leaders because there is a minimum 3.6 punts per game to qualify :( Urban and the offense are completely screwing this up. What the hell is up with all these damn touchdowns...getting kinda repetitive. 

Comment 04 Oct 2016

Could be the only plus of playing at noon. Urbs will have time once the game is over. 

Comment 02 Oct 2016

The biggest area of concern for me on this young and talented team is the zone 6 unit. We have the deepest WR talent I can recall, but I also can't remember a time when our #1 WR wasn't round 1-2 material...and we don't have anyone at that level right now. Elite talent yes, elite performance no. 

Comment 25 Sep 2016

Clemson v Louisville is the bigger game. It will determine who is in the driver's seat in the ACC Atlantic. Loser of UW-UM still controls it's own destiny to win B1G.

Comment 25 Sep 2016

Disagree. OSU is the biggest beneficiary of adding Rutgers and Maryland - it's helped  our recruiting on the East coast a great deal. 

Comment 25 Sep 2016

Can't agree. Pre and early season rankings are too much fun and they don't harm anything. Don't mean anything either, but that's not the point. 

Comment 21 Sep 2016

Buckfutter nailed it. I'm rooting for Ohio State which means I root for whatever improves our odds of making the playoff...which means rooting for Wisconsin in this one. 

Comment 19 Sep 2016

From what I've heard Peterson didn't want to do the alumni dinner/ speaking engagement circuit, but Sark was all to eager. 

Comment 18 Sep 2016

I think you can make a strong argument for the B1G being the best conference right now...and with most of our OOC games done, this will keep the B1G near the top until bowl season. 

Real Time RPI has an excellent conference ranking page. It shows the B1G has the best record but still ranks the B1G just behind the SEC due to our weaker SOS. In case you think this is biased it's not...its a computer formula established before the season. It could be wrong but it's not biased. A computer conference ranking will consider the #9 team in a conference just as much as it considers the #3 team in a conference. I don't think any one would argue that the SEC is stronger than any other conference in the mid to lower portion. The B1G's top 6 teams can compete with the SEC's top 6. 

Comment 11 Sep 2016

That's already factored into the line. We would have been a 3.5 point favorite, but since OU will have the underdog motivation edge (which we all know is worth .5 points), the line moves down to 3. ;)

Comment 10 Sep 2016

Thanks for posting the highlights - really enjoyed seeing what Tate can do. This was a fun thread to read. Even though I started after the game was over, I could follow along for each score without knowing the final result. 

Comment 04 Sep 2016

OK nobody wants to discuss the elephant in the room...both QBs looked horrible their first series in the game. 

Comment 05 Aug 2016

Could not agree more. Baylor should be hit hard with penalties and they should actually enforce them this time. 

PSU's original sentence was light in comparison to the crime. That the sentence was commuted was a great injustice. 

Comment 04 Jul 2016

This is one area where I disagree with Urban. The NCAA needs to go much further with deregulating recruiting. Why the hell is there a "impermissible recruiting decoration" rule? Probably teams with no trophies thought it was an unfair advantage.
