Might be, but let's go hyping him up beyond measure until he actually gets on the field. Remember when Dontre Wilson was going to be better than Percy Harvin?
They split 3-3 actually.
|Huge Zeke fan, but I don't generally take rookies until round 3-4. He's going to split carries with McFadden anyway - I'd rather have a guy that the team is going to run into the ground to the tune of 1600 yds.
FD, Providence, UNC-A, UVa, and UConn are the tourney teams.
Easy there. That same kind of analysis would have chalked up 'easy wins' for UT-Arlington, Louisiana Tech and Memphis last year. Let's actually get the W's before complaining about the blowouts.
I just did the work (see my table below). Three are 250+, which I would guess is about the same as last year.
Here are final RPI's from last year:
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
While I agree with that 99% of the time, for some reason the improper use of your/you're and there/their/they're makes me cringe so hard my face hurts.
Steve Jobs also died of a perfectly treatable form of cancer because he shunned traditional medicine in favor of acupuncture and fruit juices. No one's perfect I guess.
Luckily for this exercise, .05% compounded quarterly or continuously gets you pretty much the same answer.
What's interesting about those odds is that there's basically one or two favorites to make it per conference - except for the Pac 12. Everyone keeps talking about how the Big 12 needs to expand to add a title game while Stanford might get shut out of the playoff two years in a row.
That's the present value. If you want to know how much your current money will be worth in the future use FV = Pe^(rt)

I'm a huge Rosen fan. If you haven't done so go watch some of his clips. Might have the prettiest throwing motion I've ever seen. It's like Griffey swinging a bat.
Vital part of us getting a title and got his degree? No problem if he wants to leave, but obviously would love to have him back.
That's a lazy nickname. This will always be Big Tuna:
Urban was basically just saying to get involved, regardless of who you support. As for him taking sides, it wouldn't surprise me if OSU or the Athletic Dept has basically muzzled him - we have a lot of donors on both sides of the aisle who would be upset if he endorsed the "wrong" candidate.
You can't just drop that reference and not include this
A loss to OU is certainly reasonable, and a The Game could always go either way, so I can see 2 easily. I could also see losing one of the road night games back to back (Wisc / PSU). But I guess I have a hard time seeing us lose both PLUS some other game (MSU?). Which means the 8-4 O/U seems low.
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.
Yep, got the Mohu Leaf ($20) and a Chromecast ($35). I get local channels so I can watch the news in the morning (shoutout to my girl Nora on CBS), get the NBA playoffs on ABC, and will get regular season NFL games too, all with no monthly charges.
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.
Regarding who owns the playoff - my pipe dream is that in the futurue someone like Netflix or Apple swoops in and sells it streaming ala carte. Nothing good on this week? No worries. Would you like to watch Clemson vs Florida State for $.99? Sure, fire it up.
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.
