Please No B1G chants! Big Ten doens't deserve any chants. S-E-C would be funny but I'd stick with O-H-I-O. :)

This is exactly why they are still in the top four. They simply don't have a loss and won it all last year. It would look severely bad on the committee to leave out an undefeated defending national champion which is why they will ultimately not be left out if they win Saturday no matter what any of the other results are. Even though FSU does not play like one the "Four best teams" and isn't one of the best four to almost everyone. Sadly I think the injury to JT will hurt us if everyone wins. I almost think it won't matter to the committee if we win Saturday and everyone else wins. We really need someone to lose at this point. The whole "style points" thing and the "four best teams" that the committee stresses is complete BS bc FSU would not be in the top four based on this criteria.

I think that its great that OSU is finally getting some support and recognition from ESPN because I think that its the single place that has the biggest impact of OSU'S ranking outside of OSU itself. But with that said, I don't think Trevor or many of their "talking heads" are good analysts at all because they generally go with the "flavor of the week". There are very few really good evaluators that work there, example Phil Steele, Todd McShay. I really don't think Trevor knows any more than the rest of us that follow this sport so closely and I am not about to get overly excited just because a bunch of them are rating us highly now. I will get excited when we Hoist the BIG championship which I believe will ultimately land us a shot at the playoff. Man I wanna see us go out and just dominate an SEC team. Then I will be excited! :)

I think that we just need to focus on the BIG championship at this point. The rankings have been off and on the mark in so many ways. And I just see it as a distraction for me actually enjoying watching OSU football games. Maybe if we win the BIG championship we can get a little luck and make the playoffs. But I want to see more improvement before I really want to see us play in a playoff. Those spots should be earned and I hope the committee takes conference champions when its all said and done. Also we are being hurt by our utterly awful schedule and a bad VT loss. BIG east is garbage minus OSU and MSU and we have to play that same garbage every single year. The BIG east is going to continue to hurt us unless PSU gets better. Maybe thats why we are adding the likes of Texas and Notre Dame in the same year in future schedules. I think we need to continue to schedule more OOC challenges.

Yes it should be interesting for sure when the contract with ABC/ESPN ends in 2016. There will be a lot of suitors wanting to take the tier 1 rights away and from the looks of things Fox is preparing to fork up the $$$.

My guess is that it will go to the highest bidder and with the way ESPN pushes their SEC agenda, its difficult to envision the BIG sticking with them for that. Especially given that Delaney and ESPN talks pushed him to form BTN which FOX already owns 51% of BTN.

These polls are really getting to be rediculous to see every week. OSU stays stagnant while most of these teams that lose stay ahead. Ex. Baylor, TCU, Norte dame. I'm sick of it. I wondered with the lack of highlights of any BIG team would be indicative of the polls and here we are. Highlights yesterday were showing big 12 sec and pac 12 and just displayed mich st and osu scores. Zero highlights!!! I watched mostly into the hours of the morning too. These polls should indicate better than this. Especially when the eyeball test shows OSU is a top 7-8 at the very least. Not impressed. I just hope that the committee takes these blowouts into account considering OSU is not the same team it was against VT.

The big dump on Michigan would be if Arizona won the pac12 and went to the playoffs.

I still think that this pass defense can be fixed. Our guys that are playing are still very young and with the experience of last night night in mind, they will learn from it and are surely going to get better. We have to trust in Urban and Chris ash. uC has some really good receivers and we certainly won't see that again this year. Enough can't be said about the passion our guys have. Joey Bosa is a star! He reminds me of Jared Allen a little bit.
