Anyone know if this game will be televised?
Why would it be bullshit? Statistically, TCU and Baylor have equal defenses and more powerful offenses. They've played roughly the same level of competition, and have lost to much more respectable teams. I really wish Ohio State could jump over these Big 12 teams, but there simply is no reason other than the always reliable "eye test" to justify OSU replacing either Big 12 team.
How the hell can any player do something like that and not at the absolute very least get penalized? That's the kind of thing I would expect at least a 1 game suspension for and an ejection from that game. Unbelievable.
Oh how great it would be to shut _ichigan out of a bowl game.
I agree with every point except the very last one. KSU simply does not have enough offensive fire power to compete with Baylor and while their defense is fundamentally sound they aren't talented enough to stop Baylor's attack.
Gotta love capitalism.
I mean, the AP and Coaches Polls agree with him, hence why we're ranked behind TCU in both.
8th, but I don't mind that since the seven teams above us would have equally good wins combined with losses to more competitive teams than VT. I actually think the AP has the top 8 dead on for what the rankings should look like this week.
From a third party standpoint, MSU has to be the play here. OSU hasn't beaten a top ten road team in forever and has looked more than a little shaky against any decent opponents this year.
That being said, how can you pick against the Bucks??
If Barrett is healthy, then I completely disagree with you. However if, like the Penn State game, he sustains an injury that clearly is hampering his play, Urban needs to pull him and put in Cardale. I would much rather have a healthy less talented quarterback than a clearly injured more talented quarterback in our offense.
We always play great when theres no pressure.
I was really hoping the AP Poll would not have such a heavy impact on these rankings...
I'm fine with our ranking. What pisses me off is Ole Miss at no. 4, Alabama at no. 6, Notre Dame at no. 10, and UGA at no. 11.
Ole Miss and Bama are just me pissed off at SEC bias. Notre Dame has played a decent schedule and has only lost to the no. 2 team according to these rankings: MSU has played a much worse schedule and lost to the no. 5 team and yet somehow are 2 ranks higher. UGA's only win of merit was over Clemson, and their loss was to an awful SCAR team. How are they ranked above Zona, ASU, etc.?
Not very confident. But I still have faith in Urban to use this performance as a stepping stone to better performances later on.
Well we know Pollack will have them in the top 8 for sure.
Like the Illibuck, Ohio State-Penn State is a faux rivalry.
Ah my bad, I saw "Kansas" and read "Oklahoma"
The Big 10 isn't getting Texas as long as they hold on to the insane belief that they can keep the Longhorn Network.
And are we sure that Oklahoma is willing/able to leave OK ST behind?
"This was about the time Michigan State started stabbing everything in sight."
Made me laugh.
This is a winning football team mentality. I love it.
Nope. Not yet. Rakeem Cato has put up insane numbers all season for an undefeated Marshall squad and no one has said a word about him. Until JT Barrett and Ohio State beat someone of serious merit, Barrett simply isn't a contender in the Heisman race.
Very well said. I had never thought of it in this light before.
