One day I changed my icon, and the entire internet almost collapsed in on itself and destroyed the known universe. Good news is that we're all still here and can laugh about it. Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

Oh man, that's really sad.  Such a shame.  Best wishes to everyone, especially his wife and son.

The Big Ten always craps the bed in bowls...you could go back way before 2000.  And Ohio State hasn't done much to help matters all time (22-25).  Because it has always been this way, you could consider it part of the conference's identity as much as any other tradition.  No reason at all to think it will ever change.  Bring in Harbaugh, bring in Meyer...nothin' changes.........f'ing Nazis.

What planet do you live on?  The one I live on is pretty clear that Urban Meyer's offenses require you to run the football.  I don't care if it's Mike Weber or Zeke Elliott, or someone as bad as Lydell Ross was...if they don't run it, they struggle mightily, and that is a common factor in all of their losses.

I've never seen an Urban Meyer team pass its way to victory.  Have you?

There's only one coach out there who can do what it takes to beat Alabama, and we already have him.  As long as we have him, we have a chance to beat Nick Saban.  So, I'm not complaining for a long, long, long while.

The only team Penn State has an argument for replacing in the playoff is Clemson...who also lost to Pitt.  Ohio State beat Wisconsin at their house.  Ohio State beat Oklahoma at their house.  Ohio State beat Michigan, who annihilated Penn State.  Ohio State was beating Penn State by double digits deep into the 4th quarter, and lost it on a series of fluke plays.

It is a strange set of circumstances here, but Penn State didnt just lose once in the early goings of the season where it can be forgiven...they lost twice.  Too many other 1-loss teams out there to consider over a 2 loss team that plays in a division with michigan state, rutgers, and maryland.  They won a tie-beaker.  Had Michigan not lost to Iowa on a last second field goal, Ohio State would be your division champ.

We didn't get into the playoff because of our brand.  We got into the playoff because we beat #9 and #6 at their houses, and beat #5 when they were #3.  The only loss was to #7 due to an improbable series of events.  Ohio State played one of the toughest, if not the toughest, schedule in the country.

I don't see how the Pac-12 championship has any bearing on Ohio State getting into the playoff.  Ranked 2nd, beat the Big XII champ, beat the #3 team in the country...no way they drop out of the top 4 and get left out....would have happened already.  Definitely want Washington in the playoff.  Colorado?!  Who invited them to the freakin' championship party?  Washington has been to the same # of Rose Bowls as Ohio State (strangely enough, they've never played each other in Pasadena).  Talk about overdue for getting back to prominence.  Colorado football's biggest claim to fame is their rape culture.  I'm kinda sad the Pac-12 invited that garbage.  But who am I to point fingers at inviting garbage? #rutgers

It's just preposterous to have ever thought that a team with this many new starters would win every game.  Throw them into the best Big Ten lineup the conference has seen in years, and they were bound to have a game where nothing was clicking.

I'm not upset about this one, and I'm mentally prepared for a loss to Michigan this year.  Full confidence that Urban Meyer and this group of insanely competitive youngsters are going to rally and get better from it.  I wouldn't want to be Northwestern this week!

An odd sentiment, and a lazy analogy.  It's not like conferences that feature unequal revenue sharing have powerhouses in every team.  Otherwise Kansas and Iowa State would be a top-5 program in the Big XII, where Oklahoma and Texas retain most conference revenue, right?  Because both would be incentivized to fill the stands, right?  Can only do that with winning football, right?

Not to mention that we don't seem to see this happening in Purdue's other sports - which would be expected if the entire Purdue campus were lazy free check-collectors.  Sure, winning football is a gold mine.  But Purdue's doing great with men's basketball right now - the 2nd largest moneymaker on a college campus.  Purdue's Women's basketball team has won the Big Ten Tournament in 9 of the last 18 years.  Their women's golf team is also pretty good.

Not to mention Purdue's science and engineering student body is one of the most competitive in the world.  I don't think the Big Ten welfare checks really affect their definition of winning.

You know what?  Fuck off, former Purdue football player, for making me defend Purdue.  Blech.
