The TTUN faithful try to spin his tantrums as an endearing character trait or as a sign of "real zeal". Actually, they are childish and a humiliation to his team and school.

I may be wrong, but if I read between Hocutt's lines correctly, the following seems likely: 1) Ohio State is in barring some crazy developments this weekend. The current #2 ranking, the statement that "OSU and PSU are not close" and the affirmation that strong OOC games are irrelevant if they do not mean something = Buckeyes are in; it is only a matter of seeding. 2) TTUN is out. While TTUN does hold a #5 ranking, the B1G CG participants are (I believe) ranked at #6 and #7, respectively. It seems to me that the winner with another top 10 victory would jump idle TTUN. Yes, TTUN would have the head-to-head, but Hocutt expressly stated that this is not the definiing criteria. In that case, it would seem that the conference championship would trump the head-to-head.

Or am I missing something?

Mighty kind offer. I live in Hannover in northern Germany. Write me a line if you are in my area and we will raise a glass to this great team. By the way, I went to law school in Chicago before I got a job abroad. That is a great city. You are lucky to be able to live there (except for the winters).

I agree with this mightily. Watching Harbaugh cry during the post-game was like watching a hammer of justice fall ... Also, one of the greatest Buckeye teams I have seen (damn MSU).

Harbaugh's ploy is quite obvious, I think. He understands that perception often is worth more than reality in college football. He is pulling out all the stops to generate the appearance that TTUN is "back", and ethically-upstanding behavior be damned. His hope is that enough athletic kids will be fooled by the perception of TTUN's "return to glory" to actually want to be a part of that corrupt cesspool. His ploy is that he will attract enough talent to actually make his system work before the general public awakes to reality and the smoke screen of "greatness" his antics, ploys, lack of loyalty to his recruits / players, corrupt job-giving and unwarranted media love have created is dispelled.

The best way to smash his plan, of course, is to expose him for the whiny, self-entitled weakling he is. I am sure Coach Meyer will have this in mind when preparing for the Game.
