Sagarin still has the SEC bias that all of the polls do. If you've been reading Vico's pieces, he's pointed out over and over that the SEC (aside from Alabama) is basically hot garbage. Florida is probably the next best team in the SEC and they have 3 losses (and played a game less than everyone else). Wisconsin beat LSU, probably the 3rd best team in the SEC. I'd take PSU over Auburn or Tennessee. Top to bottom the B1G was better this year, but history is what makes these polling sites put a "strength" on their initial ratings, which biases the later ratings.
The cognitive dissonance required to say Alabama is in no matter what and Ohio State isn't is baffling to me. Either both are in without winning a conference title or neither are. Ohio State has a better resume than Bama. The B1G was clearly the best conference in the country this year. I don't get it.
BOOOOOOOOO to those helmets
Then they should be flagging RBs for lowering the head too, which they aren't. That part of the rule is just dumb. Keep 9-1-4, throw 9-1-3 out. And remove the automatic ejection. Make it an ejection only if egregious. It's only a 15 yard penalty in the NFL.
They already have WVU, what's another couple thousand travel miles?
I mean, people do that with Brutus here. They're just good dog names.
It was Anderson Russell. I was in the third row of that end zone and saw the total whiff from about 15 yards away. Heartbreaking end. And then my Bengals put Quan on the roster for a few years...
Which is why you give the home game on campus for the first round. Still have an incentive to play with home field advantage at stake.
Or you move to 6 or 10 and have a first round bye a la NFL or FCS playoffs.
If Ok State beats the Sooners, they'll be in.
Me too. Mine's a cousin, so I can't skip.
We call him Raggedy Andy in my family when he plays like that. Been pleasantly surprised to only have flashes of that this year. Who Dey!
Jon Wilner is an idiot. That is all.
You're thinking of Chris Perry. Hart was drafted by the Colts.
With the help of former Michigan running back Mike Hart — who P.J. Fleck hired as running backs coach prior to last season
I forgot good old H20-4 got hired by WMU.
Utah over TTUN.
Good catch, turns out we did.
Official schedule has a blank date on 9/9 and Oklahoma on 9/16. I'm confused Brett.
Funny enough, it was a coworker doing a work-related project that happened across this.
