If you don't think the Buckeyes are worthy of the CFP then it doesn't matter.

If you do think they could be... relax. They didn't stock the committee with football minded people just to have them compare SOS,  how OSU is playing to finish the season will be much more important than a loss in the second game of the year.

Dislocated his kneecap last night, doubt he did much today.

Maybe they would but they still have to feed the beast or that money begins to dwindle.

Man... that wasn't what I was saying at all. Sorry you took it that way. I was thinking more about why we're seeing it so much.

Wonder how much of this is caused by these guys hooking up with women that only want them because they're millionaire athletes, either way it's the player's fault. Maybe a better decision when hooking up would help keep them from making a terrible decision later on.

Zeke is great but at some point Samuel will, at least, be sitting front row for the Heisman presentation. I think we'll spend the next few years witnessing the growth of a Buckeye all-timer in Samuel. Through my scarlet colored glasses I see Samuel pushing Zeke to the point we'll have 2 of the best 5 backs in the country at some point.

UM has to get good again. I live and work on the border and I have to say, it just isn't any fun talking shit anymore.

It's way too early to give a definitive "yes" but I think peeps are putting too much stock into the ESPN narrative. SOS is only one factor the committee has stated will be looked at, ESPN has made it out to be the only thing that matters but that is only because the constant conference debate serves them well. UM of the Big East, FSU in the Bowden years and USC in the Carroll years were all the best teams in the nation at a time and all three came out of very weak conferences. The selection is different and OSU is none of those teams but the fact the best team can come from a bad conference is valid.

I still like the Buckeye's chances. The VT loss was disappointing but OSU will keep getting better as the season goes on and if they can make it through with no more losses and are peaking at the end of the season they'll be in the mix.

Three words you never want to hear from your leader... "I don't know".... pretend you do until you do know.

Buckeyes just lack confidence, they need to put away all the "growing pains" garbage, all the "jelling" garbage, all the "life w/o Braxton" garbage. The coaching staff has got to know if they limit these guys that they will only rise to those limits. IMO that's why VT got that win, their coaches coached to win and ours coach not to lose. They threw caution to the wind and played with nothing to lose while OSU played it tight to the vest (again) trying to tread water long enough to gain experience and cohesion.

I also don't think there was really anything wrong with the playcalling, teams run the ball to force the opponent to bring an extra player into the box so they can take advantage of that and go over their heads. VT did that for us right from jump, what needed to happen was Corey Smith needed to catch the fucking ball to burn them and make them back off. Since he didn't VT never needed to respect the offense and were able to do whatever they wanted.

Note to Corey Smith... "CATCH THE FUCKING BALL... and if you can't do that find a spot on the FUCKING BENCH."

If there's no B1G title in the next two seasons, the grumbling will start and the leash will shorten. If nothing in the next 3 seasons, he's gone. Meyer was hired to get OSU over the hump and back on top, recruiting is nice but trophies are what counts.
