Far be it from me to defense TTUN's title odds, but needing a settled QB to win in CFB is a total myth. Here are your championship winning QBs:

2015: Jake Coker,- 1st year starter

2014: Cardale Jones / JT Barrett - 1st year starters

2013: Jameis Winston - 1st year starter

2012: AJ McCarron  - 2nd year starter

2011: Aj McCarron - 1st year starter

2010: Cam Newton - 1st year starter

2009: Greg McIlroy - 1st year starter

The way I see it is OSU fans are hardcore, loyal football fans.  If we went 8-4 we'd sellout every game in the Shoe.  But we're definitely bandwagon basketball fans as a whole.  If we're ranked in the top 10 and competing for a conference title the Schott is rocking.  But if we're in 5th place the place is a graveyard.

Same here - though I've let Sling lapse until September so I'm not even paying for that.  We had 2 DVRs that we were getting charged for, so I'm currently saving $100/mo.  The only thing I'm not gonna get is the one or two annual BTN games - for those I'll just head to the bar and get some beer and apps with the extra $1200 in my bank account.

I know that's the popular conspiracy theory, but I don't actually think ESPN is biased against us. They just know what drives ratings/clicks. When we start the season #8 they'll run a story on dark horses to make the playoff and feature is. If we climb to #3 they'll tab us as most likely to lose. Both of those stories will whip our fans into a frenzy, which is what they want.
