The game to watch will be when TCU goes to Texas on a Thursday night. Thursday night games, much like the NFL, are usually wacky and this could be where TCU trips up. All Texas has heard about this year is how great TCU is and how they are the dominant team in Texas. Texas could come out and play inspired football and keep this game close and maybe even pull a win. Wishful thinking but it is certainly possible.
I really think the lack of a Big 12 championship game hurts that conference. Also, Jeff Long has also said all along that "conference champions are important to us." However, this past week a committee member commented saying "we don't even look at conferences when evaluating teams." Paraphrasing but something along those very lines was said. This committee is turning into one big debacle, but that's for another day. To get to my point, this kind of stuff happens EVERY SINGLE YEAR. 3-4 weeks before the end of the season we have this hot debates about who should be where and what should happen. And just about every single year, things work themselves out. As an OSU fan, we just need to worry about our own football team and hope that they continue progressing and winning in good fashion. In regards to "help" a couple scenarios could happen that would lead to the Bucks making the playoffs (if they win out, of course). Baylor or TCU loses 1 more game. SEC team gets in and FSU gets in. Then, Arizona beats ASU and ASU turns around and beat Oregon in the Pac-12 title game. Thus, OSU is in. Another scenario is both Baylor and TCU lose and OSU takes that spot. I think we need to hope for TCU to lose because quite honestly I think the Buckeyes can jump Baylor if both have 1 loss at the end of the season. Baylor non-conference is atrocious and Buckeyes will have the Nebraska win at the end which will definitely help. The interesting thing will be to watch if FSU loses. Will they still make it over the Buckeyes with 1 loss? Seeing as how Oregon with 1 loss jumped FSU, I'm not so sure. I do not think the committee thinks FSU is winning with enough dominance.
Demario McCall is really really good. Kid looks like Dontre when he was in HS, except McCall has better size. Can't wait to watch this kid in a Buckeye uniform. Also, I like the Parris Campbell comparison for George Hill. OSU has tons of speed and the rich will get richer with this 2016 class.
Very impressive. However, I'm gonna knit pick and point out something that never gets corrected. 23 pounds of "muscle" in that short of a time period is not realistic. Yes he put on some muscle but some of it is fat. "Pure muscle" takes an extremely long time to build and is simply not doable in this short of a time period as I stated before. Not to take away anything from Dean who has worked extremely hard it looks like. Good job son!
Yeah leading 2-1 up until literally the last few seconds when it was finally tied coupled with the fact that they dominated at many points in the game. You sir are a first class dumbass.
Well actually in the pecking order it is clearly HARRIS, and then Scott and Weber are next on the board. Scott and Weber are committing somewhere sooner than Harris but there is no doubt DH is #1 on their board. I think Larry Scott commits to the Buckeyes very soon, however.
A 325 lb. bench press at 179 lbs. is ridiculous. To go along with 10.3 on the track? Small kid but you have to think he is being underrated because of that size because those are some incredible measures.
I understand this forum post was about Brown but Richard Lecounte is mentioned in it as well. With that said, I think we are seeing that often times you can kill two BIG birds with one stone when it comes to recruiting. The Buckeyes signed Raekwon McMillan this past cycle and because of that are in the driver's seat for 2017 5* prospect Richard Lecounte. Likewise, when we landed Joey Bosa we landed his little bro 2016 5* prospect Nick Bosa. Gotta love it.
