My fiance is a Villanova grad so we have some emotional investment in this game. I actually had Nova-OU in the Final Four. The problem is my other two teams were Sparty-WVU.
I believe in Thad and Ohio State Basketball.
Hard times, but the sun will rise tomorrow
That sucks. It is good to see ESPN actually report news.
I am more impressed that ESPN broke a story!
Good for him; at least get feedback and move on
The only thing that could make the first half of the Nova-Iowa game sweeter is if the Nova band comes out at halftime and insults farmers in a tribute to the Stanford Band
And TR wanted to ban it then!
I may be down voted to oblivion, but I could see a world in 49-50 years in which football is greatly marginalized due to violence and concussions, top athletes choosing other sports, etc
I am not a parent, to the best of my knowledge, but I am inclined to not let my kids play football, lacrosse, or hockey. It is easier for me to say this now without kids.
Danke! Just ordered the 14s
My fiancé went to Villanova so I will support them until they collapse as a two seed in the second round
It all comes down to company culture and the perspective of the hiring committee
For entry level positions, my employer looks for hippie small liberal art schools (Oberlin, Weslyean, Vassar) and prestigious private schools.
We lose out on a lot of exceptional talent, unfortunately.
I saw the show with Eddie on Sunday. Eddie was proficient, there were other actors on the stage who were stronger, but he did a solid job.
Wow. Winning a national title and losing four games in four years does wonders for recruiting (on top of the historical significance of Ohio State to college football)
Meh---a night game and alcohol? These things happen, unfortunately.
As a Browns fan, I am happy we are still the last NFL team from the State of Ohio to win a playoff game
You can always go back to school with the financial assistance of Ohio State. Cannot say no to the NFL.
Meh. It has only been three days. I am sure it will come.
Good for him.
Another three star recruit onto the NFL. This is what player development looks like. A great stat to pull out for future recruits.
Who is next to the NFL? Bell? Apple? Thomas? Marshall? Am I missing anyone?
Edit: Good to see earned his diploma before he left. That is the goal!
In 2006, the Fiesta Bowl did a 12.9 (Ohio State versus Notre Dame)
This might be the huge difference between ABC and ESPN?
The Rose made it clear it was going to pick whoever was ranked highest for the B1G out of eligible teams.
Everyone LOVED the computers in the BCS era....
We tried that and no one wanted OSU -Michigan to play twice in the same year, especially back to back
This happens every few years in the BCS era as well (2001 and 2007 were pretty bad too). I was disappointed by the quality of the games, but it was bound to happen.
But that is what makes college football unique and different. It is also why I am more of a college football fan than any other sport (it could also be because of my love of the miserable Browns, but alas).
If the field expands, every game won't count. Does a two-loss team deserve a shot at a national title which they would certainly get if it expanded to eight teams?
I could not disagree more. What is a better metric? If we use the eye test, there is an inherent bias towards the blue bloods, but is that fair to the Iowas, Baylors, TCUs, and Oregons of the world?
It is truly quite simple. Win all of your games and you make the playoff. Ohio State failed to do so. If you lose, pray the team you lost to loses twice.
If Michigan could punt the football and Ohio State beats Iowa, it still gets into the CFP over Stanford, I think.
