Any playoff that does not feature 2 SEC teams this year is a sham.  You may not like it but the SEC most definitely has 2 of the best 4 teams in the country this year.  

The playoff will feature 2 SEC teams, FSU, + one other.  The pecking order for that last slot is where it gets interesting.  

Comment 26 Oct 2014

He did not complete a pass in OT but the OL played well and JT ran with guts.  This game did show that the rush to appoint him better than Miller was premature.  We will now certainly be an underdog heading into MSU.  

Comment 25 Oct 2014

Our B10 SOS will take a hit today.  3 Big10 teams we play losing to 3 B10 teams we don't play.  Hopefully Minny can come back and win.  Nebraska beating Rutgets is fine if we play them in the B10 championship game.  

Comment 25 Oct 2014

The playoff committee definitely will let in 2 SEC teams when everyone who is not a biased fan realizes they have at least 2 of the top 4 teams.  This year's playoff formula will be:

FSU

2 SEC teams

1 of ND, Pac12 winner, OSU-MSU winner

I'd counter it's not the ESPN hype the 17 yeah old kids are buying it's the actual results on the field.  Once again this year the SEC is far and away the best conference on the field.  

Comment 19 Oct 2014

Peterno could have stopped Sandusky in his tracks.  He didn't and they still have a library with his name on it. 

Comment 19 Oct 2014

I think we stay 13 too.  We jump Oklahoma, KSU jumps us.  Our resume isn't as good as any of the teams who will be ranked ahead of us.  We haven't played a ranked team.  

Comment 16 Oct 2014

Agree that neither of these recruits are probably to OSU, but both are still viable possibles.  

With Baker we just need Muschamp to be fired.  Would also help if their LB coach is not retained.

Kentucky became more viable performing well this year, but that could fall apart. They won't be a favorite again the rest of the season.

Kentucky won't win another home game and could easily go 1-5 in this stretch.  

Comment 09 Oct 2014

Offensive stats have increased dramatically in the past 8 years.  More yards are being gained and more points scored across college football.  Troy was the most efficient passer and a clutch player when he won the award.  

Comment 05 Oct 2014

I don't see this as a knock on Burrows, it's something he can't control.  I see it as something that makes him a bit more of a risk as a recruit, but if MAC players can succeed in the NFL Joe could at OSU.  Urban watched him perform in person at camp and clearly came away impressed.  

Comment 05 Oct 2014

We landed at 15 in both polls.  Everything above played out, but in addition UCLA lost so we moved one slot higher.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

We SHOULD be rated below Oregon,Alabama, and Oklahoma - they lost to undefeated teams.  Va Tech has 2 losses.

We SHOULD be ranked below TCU and Arizona.  They beat top 5 teams and are undefeated.  We haven't played a ranked team.

We will pass and deserve to pass LSU, Stanford, Wisc, MSU- Neb loser, & BYU (ahead of us in AP only). We might pass USC in the AP.  

All this would put us at #16.  

Comment 04 Oct 2014

If we were a playoff caliber team, I would probably root for Sparty since it would improve our SOS.  We definately play MSU but only might play Nebraska.

I will root for Nebraska.  If MSU drops this game and drops 1 more game (@ Maryland or @ PSU), we could lost to MSU but still win the division.  Since they are our main division rival I'll root against them in every B10 game.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

I agree.  The primary criteria for picking up teams should be the recruiting footprint.  Nebraska added nothing there and that hurt the rest of the Big 10.
