There was never a doubt that OSU was in, but I think it is absolutely hilarious that the committee swapped Clemson and OSU based on Clemson squeaking by a very average VaTech team.  But whatever, same game, it only changes who wears light or dark uniforms.  I think OSU wins and covers whatever the spread is - looks like it opened at 3.5 and I think we settle in as a 3 to 5 point favorite. Go Bucks!

Regarding the Navy situation, they chose to play a game after the season has been completed.  The bowl people should just slot them as if that game is not going to take place, or just assume they will not win it.  It's ridiculous to allow this to impact other teams' preparation just because Navy wants to play Army after the season is over. Navy should be the one who is left out in the cold.

This sounds to me like the AD just wanted to make a change to a guy he liked better.  Clearly no on field performance issues, no NCAA violations, and no medical protocol issues, just a "leadership direction" difference.  And he basically gave a positive reference for Wilson for future employers.  The AD had better hope this works out otherwise he is going to be under fire.  Or not, it's still just IU football lol.

Absolutely they need to get rid of the stupid divisions.  The only reason they were created was to have the CCG.  Now that divisions are no longer a requirement for a CCG all conferences should do away with them.  You could very easily set up a rotation where each team has 2 or even 3 annual rivals and still play every other team in the conference at least once every 3 years.  I still think CCGs are dumb and pointless, but if this were the set up for this year then OSU would be playing PSU Saturday since we would be tied at the top with 1 conference loss each.   That is also pointless since the 2 teams already played once this year.

My plan - get rid of divisions, start the season 1 week later, play all the rivalry games this weekend.  You wanna bet that a game like OSU vs Michigan would weigh more than a game like, oh Clemson vs VT or Washington vs Colorado?  Absolutely.

It's funny, but over the years this is remember as a much better "classic" game that it really was - the truth is that OSU dominated this game.  Michigan was never in this game after halftime; they never possessed the ball in a position to tie or take the lead (i.e. they were always 2 scores behind when they had the ball) and their last score came on a VERY controversial PI call on 4th down.  So they were down 12, had lost possession, and OSU was prepared to run out the clock.  The fact that they scored a garbage TD on a bogus call has made the 1v2 game a bigger legend, but the reality was that OSU controlled this game for 75% of it and Michigan never had a legit chance at victory.

Lovie was a huge hire for Illinois, but it is going to take more than 1 (or 2) years for him to get things going over there.  I don't think he will get them a B1G title, but he certainly can get them in contention for the B1G West in the next 3-4 years

Of course he went for 2.  Today was their entire season. If they win, they make their season.  It was the right call and if he hadn't gone for 2 he should have been questioned.  Today's game was a complete and total disaster for OSU and he could have wrecked the entire season.  They had 0% chance in OT so this was their only shot.  It will hurt OSU in the polls this week, but next week will rectify that. Go Bucks!

I dunno.  Remember the Tulsa game where it was sunny until right before halftime then armageddon weather came in?  It wasn't until it started raining sideways with thunder and lightning that we scored a TD. 

This feels kind of like the Minnesota game from a few years ago where we went up there and had to play in the coldest game in OSU history.  I was VERY worried about those conditions, but the team found a way to win that one.  They will find a way to get it done today too.

Parking is what pissed me off in the first place.  I used to park in a C lot about a half mile away for free and walk.  Once OSU sold the parking they charge 24x7 in every lot.  Then they change lots over to $10 or $15 lots with no notice for some games.  What a scam.

Aggressive play is the key to winning games.  I just don't understand why we have so many lapses, then all of a sudden remember "oh yeah we do better when we dictate the tempo".  Now step on the gas and put this one away.
