Pretty sure that's not the work of us Buckeyes. We LOVE coach Hoke!
You're my aerodynamic with a skunk weasel on your head. He's good to go as he is.
31 yards. Bucks win 59-6
Will Maryland wear some sort of eyeball bleed inducing unis Saturday? if so they may have to overcome Jabba the Hoke without my support...
There's another thread linking to a Georgia paper making the argument for Georgia with two-losses in the mighty SEC to be taken over other one-loss teams. Vomit.
Spot on. Think about it - the committee doesn't have to reveal ANYTHING till the final. But oh no - we get an "update" every week that just makes for tons of talk and drama. ESPN and talk radio must be lovin' them some CFB playoffs!
Everyone else is weighing in with their opinion so I'll give mine too - I don't think FSU belongs. Lots of wins over teams that aren't very good and their wins are by the skin of their teeth. Undefeated isn't enough for me (just ask Marshall).
Also think MSU is out. Right now they have one win over a ranked team. MSU's inclusion is clear proof of the SEC effect I think. They've beaten a bunch of teams that WERE ranked but aren't now but somehow that still counts. That doens't work for me. I'd take TCU or Baylor over them.
Think it'll play out and we'll be in if we take care of our business. Sure am glad we have a B1G championship game still. That may be exactly what we need to cinch the deal.
Am delighted that we will have the opportunity to shut down Mr. 400 Yard Rusher in front of the nation, proving that our D goes with our O: one of the top four in the country!
May the good Lord bless you as you know the joys of raising a child. And may his first words be "I-O!" to your "O-H"!
Kannell has been w/us a while on MIke & Mike and he is a breath of fresh air when it comes to the SEC: the only realistic voice at the WWL.
If you're best wins are Aubie and Arky you aren't a Top Four team. Period. And don't give me the transitive property of Arky over LSU over Wiksy ... you can do that all day and end up with anything you want.
Those are not signature wins. They don't say "Hey, we're one of the best teams in the country." A&M beat Arky and Aubie! You ranking them in the top four?!
This is nothing but ESecPN brainwashing at work...
Miss State does not have a quality win... and yet continues to be talked about as one of the top four teams in the country... hard to believe.
Great breakdown. Makes you realize how complex this game is!
Have a friend who is a big Husker. Visited him and we went to Lincoln to see the school. Walking around the stadium and lo and behold a gate was open. He and his two small boys and me proceeded to head out onto the artificial turf to monkey around, play invisible football and make Heisman poses. At first I thought we might get in trouble but then I realized ... it's a football field. What are we going to do to it that would hurt it? Large men in pads pummel (and get pummeled) on this field every Saturday. So we joyously ran around like kids having a blast. No one seemed to mind.
Highlight of the day: standing on the red "N" at mid-field my friend asked me if I knew what the red "N" stands for. "Well, I think I do but why don't you tell me?" "Nowledge, my friend, we've got Nowledge here." I never see the red N that I don't think of that! LOL
Bucks roll - 35-10 and it ain't that close.
I'll be listening to the streaming app as I run a half marathon at Disney World. Go Bucks!
Tremendously funny and overwhelmingly sad ... as all great satire is.
A friend is consoling me by wondering if maybe when Hoke is gone they will hire Lane Kiffin. LET IT BE SO!
From Buckeye HQ:
"Today's news about agent Brandon's demise is disappointing. We worked so hard and so diligently over the years to get a scarlet and grey mole at the top and then finally he is discovered and terminated. After LLLLLoyd was removed we feared we would have no one to further our agenda of making the Stink Badgers look slightly worse than a Pop Warner team, but agent Brandon did so much better than we could have ever hoped. He is to be commended for his perseverance and determination, especially the embarassment over the QB concussions and the PR disaster with emails. This was brilliant, brilliant work. But take heart Buckeyes! Our internal sabotage operations continue with secret agent Hoke."
You win the Internets. Well played, sir.
FYI - I use Podcast Addict on my Android phone. Was getting no podcasts. Searched for "The Eleven Dubcast" (NOT Eleven Warriors) found the new feed, subscribed, and downloaded the podcasts successfully. Yeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssss!
This is very good and every Buckeye knows why: the sooner he goes to the NFL the sooner his chances of becoming the second player to win two Heismans evaporates. Is he going to win another? I don't think so. After all he's done, I think it's pretty much a done deal. But you never want to sleep on the media and their ability to do something really dumb. What if he suddenly puts on the super repentant face, cries some crocodile tears and then goes out and lights it up? What if no one else has a decent season and so he is the only choice? It could happen. The Heisman could forever be (further) sullied by this loser. So get thee to NFL, young man!
And Archie remains alone!
did you see the article about Condi Rice? she's watching college fb like crazy. re-arranged her sked. watches everything and gets the coach's cutups of games she doesn't see live.
I have no way of knowing but it sounds to me like the committee will take its work seriously.
the problem is there really is no way to make the comparisons. let's take Baylor and Miss State. both are playing at such a high level. it's easy to say Miss State's defense would crush them (SEC! SEC!) ... but how do you know that? remember when Florida ran right past us? we were a very good defensive team and everyone said we were gonna crush Florida, and we got killed.
you just don't know without seeing them play each other or at least looking for a common opponent. beyond that it starts get shakey really really fast. anybody really think Boise State can beat OU? oh wait...
it's just impossible. a no win situation. that's why I favor 16 teams. do away with the bowls, do away with one pre-season game so that the conf championships are the last weekend in November. start playoffs first weekend of Dec. done by New Year's. and nobody's griping they got left out. well, someone will gripe. but there's a big difference in team #17 griping and a team with an identical record as teams in the playoffs but somehow they got a 5 and someone else got a 4...
