I know we don't beat our chests over conferences but if OSU doesn't win it, I wouldn't mind Sparty taking it home. D'antonio has done good things there and it would fully establish the B1G as a premier conference and to be taken seriously

Honest question,

Does the 2017 class have the potential to be the best all time, not just for OSU but for anyone?

The talent is insane and there are only 8 commits so far 

Edit: sorry 9 with a kicker and now 10 with a stud in Pryor

In the 2016 class, it would be a top 20 class right now 

Comment 22 Jul 2015

I mean there is a legitimate gripe if TCU/Baylor had played a CCG.  There would have been 5 teams with 0 or 1 losses in the 5 major conferences.  That is an absolute issue going forward

If you were a fan of TCU or Baylor you would absolutely be asking these questions.  I'm moreso saying all 6 teams at the end belonged, and only 4 got in.  And yes, I agree OSU got in at the end b/c of their last performance and because they are the biggest name

Well if people are flying a lot would rather fly to Miami over Dallas.  (more saying people would like to party/go to the beach in Miami all else being equal)

I live in SoFla so I don't really care 

Comment 20 Jul 2015

From everything I've read, it is based on the where the higher ranked team wants to play, with where they want their opponent to play weighed in (still up to to the higher ranked team).  Let's just say Ohio State was matched up with TCU in the semi-finals, OSU would take the Orange if given the opportunity, while TCU would take the Cotton when given the choice.  

I hope they play in the Orange as I always have tickets to it

He blocks the f out of Apple, or said better trucks Apple, in the first play from scrimmage in the Sugar bowl

Comment 20 Jul 2015

While the fact is 100% correct the circumstances of Bama getting those opportunities is where that can be questioned.

In 2011, they didn't win their own division and went over an Oklahoma St. team that beat more quality teams during the year

In 2012, they went because OSU was ineligible

I always give credit where due, and Bama won those games when they got the opportunities.  But should they have gotten said opportunities?

OSU players seem to gravitate more often towards the Army game.  Army games seems a little more well rounded as far as representing the entire country while the UA game seems to be more flash and a more SEC heavy contingent.  

OSU players have played in both but I think the Army game is more conservative and well run

Bought a new 55'' 4K Sony about a month ago and love it.  

Best buy reps (multiple) told me if you were torn between a 65'' non 4K and a 55'' 4K to get the 4K (the 4K was a couple hundred cheaper so that goes against a "seller" mentality).  They both told me 4K will be offered around 2017, and there is no way I'm getting another tv before that time

Alabama had 1 first rounder and 2 guys at the top of the 2nd round.  OSU had a guy at the top of the 2nd round.  Of the 3 guys who went high, Cooper played hard and had 2 TDs, Collins played hard as he got hurt and came back in again to gut it out.  Only Yeldon could make this excuse and he was injured going into the game anyway 

Comment 14 Jul 2015

I think for either MSU or Wisky to get in, they need Bama/Oregon respectfully to be REALLY good this year as well.  If Oregon or Bama win their respective conferences at say, 11-2, with losses to MSU and Wisky, then the argument that a 1 loss B1G teams should go over said champion is stronger.  

However, this argument scares me a lot.  OSU was a fringe top 25 team early last year, who got much better during October.  If OSU had played Oregon @ Oregon last year in week 2, do OSU fans think we would have done better than MSU did?  

Comment 13 Jul 2015

The last 3 games OSU played last year is where that is coming from.  Shut out Wisconsin, shut down Oregon, and played well enough to beat the "King" in Bama. 

The last great OSU D to me was the 05 group, which all started with dominant LB play.  I think this defense overall could be as good if the DL can get some pressure

I think the OP can just get rid of the first 2 sentences.  They are unnecessary if as you say that isn't what you want to talk about

As to the actual question presented, 2014 gave me more fulfillment.  I live in Florida, and went to Miami for law school.  Heard a ton about the "bad" call in 2002 but whatever.  i was a college freshman in 2002 at OSU, and when I got back I was only around OSU students/faculty/alumni all celebrating.  I was completely insulated from the outside view of Ohio State

From 2008-2014 I had to deal with SEC fans like no one would believe.  Lived in Florida for 6 years now.   I dated a gator for 18 months during this time, and every time she had on a UF shirt I wanted to throw up.  Contrast that with a wedding I went to in May where a Bama fan sat there and said "You were just better than us" and i couldnt help but smile.  

To make a long story short, being in a place not swamped with OSU fans makes this one sweeter.
