Eleven B1G Bowl games... 9 vs ranked opponents... best buckle up B1G
Bama, Clemson, OSU, PSU. Temple is likely to be ranked and Iowa also after VT and Navy fall. UW may have the better record but PSU had better wins, more good wins, played a harder OOC and won a tougher conference. Not necessarily my top 4 but I think this is what's cookin' up.
then again, that scenario could just push Washington out
and Temple is looking to become a feather in their cap also
Yep. I see the potential for everything to come unglued. Everyone is talking like we're a lock... I'm not so sure yet.
1) they play 13 games 2) they've been put into a championship game and succeeded.... it's not the end all be all, but it's more than everyone else.
Baker made the same play in spring game
Got 'em right where we want 'em...
Alabama effect... teams just aren't the same after Bama...
Just as long as they beat PSU also...
19 second mark shows the video proof...
I don't think OSU played very well, which is perfect... should be a little salty this week and come game day.
Should have been planning a contingency 4 or 5 days ago...
That's true but they play @ LSU next year so they could just play @ LSU this year and UF next year.
They were beaten by the #2 team in the country though, so it's a good loss
That's half their complaint though... UGA struggled against TWO teams that a #12 team should be able to handle fairly easily. UGA has a new coaching staff with a first time head coach, freshman QB, injured RBs, suspect D, struggles against not very good teams and Ole Miss stays ranked by beating them and losing to the good teams they play.
If the goal is taking down Bama, Herman could be in for a big pay day...
From Napoleon, live in Delta now. My dad retired from that plant back in the late 80s... worked on the roof when he retired.
Ole Miss loss to a currently suspect team in FSU, neither of the teams OU lost to look the least bit suspect. Also, the last time UH met FSU they beat them and the last time OSU met Bama they beat them. I know OSU beating Bama has no bearing on the current standings but I like the way it looks when I type it out...
Should just be renamed to the BEast...
It's the Buckeye offense, but running him in the 4th, with the game in hand, is playing with fire.
He ripped up that "gentlemen's agreement" and made recruiting part of the competition, as it should be.
Can't really count on the Bowls as a barometer though, B1G teams played 4 division champs and a top 10 independent with three West Coast games last year while, with the exception of Bama's CFP run, the sec played a bunch of mediocre teams. Those two schedules were completely different animals.
B1G has the best collection of coaches. I like a strong conference... 5 or 6 brawls a year sure beats one and then having to wait for a Bowl game. If you like recruiting, a strong conference is a boon also... almost lost J. Baker, he was gonna pass us by looking for stronger competition elsewhere. Fortunately, Buckeye recruiting is sky rocketing on the recruiting trail, so they have a good shot at staying above a stronger B1G.
