Not very often.
While the cluster that was (and still is until a championship game) BIG XII, I think the bowl/playoff spots took the Ohio State fans into consideration. $$$$$
Yes, the SEC is mediocre. But remember our argument over in the Tessel era when the rest of the B1G was down, we used the mantra of we play who is on the schedule and win. Bama could use the same argument this year. I think the committee will take a Power 5 conference champion every time, regardless of the rest of conference. Until they don't (we will know if UF beats Bama), then we will have to start allover trying to figure them out.
They said that was a factor last year. And didn't the BIG XII announce they are going to have a championship game? Not sure when it starts. If they didn't have one coming then I could see the committee possibly making an example of Oklahome/BIG XII getting excluded again.
But who has the "better loss", UNC or us? South Carolina or MSU? They say that doesn't matter, but if you are down to two teams with identical records, you have to look at this.
They beat us doing what we have been doing. Run and get what there is in the first half and let Zeke wear them down for bigger gains in the second half.
Wasn't the guy from Boise State the first candidate for OC before we hired Beck? Wonder if he would reconsider? Can we clone Herman? How much input did Wariner have with the play calling? Did his increased duties affect work with the OL? So many questions. My head hurts.
This not having cable sucks during basketball season. Are the games available on YouTube? Please tell me there is. Really excited for this team.
I can't think of who does it, but like the football games that get posted on YouTube.
Bama and LSU play each other this weekend, so one is going to be done.
I know Bruce has been a big target and the Golden situation has been mentioned as a possible opening for the Buckeyes. The first has happened, so now it depends on who they hire. I already one of their 4* WR's decommitted this evening. Let's see what The Closer can do.
Miss watching some Ross County football.
Everyone we play, defending Champs or not, is going to come at us with their "A" game. Any team from a non-Power 5 conference especially. And the lower division schools even more so. (Ask TTUN and Auburn). We have to be ready every week no matter who we play. Take no one for granted. Not sure what the problem is exactly (and it sounds like no one else does either. Coaches or fans) As they say, no matter how the match-up looks on paper, that's why they play the games.
