Anyone who clicks on "GOT all caught up" expecting there not to be a spoiler or two deserves to have that ruined

No you hit the right button I guess I was hoping it was sarcasm so therefore responded to it with sarcasm. If not, oh well.

1. I thought it was sarcasm with the dots...

2. I'm going to go out on a limb as say he doesn't make enough on just appearances to go to all the games particularly the bowl games. Regardless I don't think that going to the games makes him any more of a fan.

In addition to being renowned locally for his commitment to give back to his community, Chubb is also considered a hero for saving two passengers from a car accident in 2006, alongside his son Tremaine Chubb. “Now, I am not only considered a super-fan, but also a super-hero,” he says

While it is cool he saved people in a car accident, he would be the guy who calls himself a super-hero

Is that a serious question...?

2 games by the Buckeyes and one by Michigan state.

That is a very narrow minded interpretation of Jim Delaney. For one, I don't think he cares who the talking heads are on Btn. It is likely that he has just a few people under him in charge of Btn and the people they hire. It might shock you but I think he may be more worried about the 44 million dollar a school per year tv contract. Per usa today. While we all like to put down the big ten for not being competitive, you can't draw the conclusion it's delaneys fault and that he's stooped down to number of clicks on a website. The guy has put enough money in each schools hand to make them competitive, some have used that money just for that, while others have used it to address other needs.

I don't buy the ESPN hates Buckeyes narrative, I do support the theory that they do everything they can to bolster the SEC. Side note, I was perusing their website and at least from the mobile website and clicked on the ESPN all conference teams link. The only thing it took me to was the SEC all conference team with no links for other conferences. Whether an accident or not I just thought it was funny.

Back to the issue at hand. I do think the B1G only winning 1 game is reasonable if you look at matchups individually and go based on favored teams, however I would be very surprised to see the B1G win fewer than 3 or 4 games. Upsets seem to happen just as much in the post season as the regular season and it would shock me if all the teams fell into the underdog vs. favored team.

So OSU made it to the CFP payin 600k a year. Last year they were one game away, had two coaching changes neither of which, IIRC were significant pay upgrades, and went undefeated the year before that. To me, it looks like the SEC is actually overpaying, per win added, for their assitants. If you look at the link below, they show the top paid assitants in the country. Alabama is the only current CFP team with an assitant high paid than any Ohio State assitant. Also, when one thinks of overall compensation, i.e. the extra benefits added other than annual salary, I would assume that the title of Head Coach adds much to that compensation making it more than a lateral move for pay.

When things like these happen it reminds you that there are bigger things than winning or losing a football game. Thoughts and prayers to the young mans family and friends.

I don't know what the best part about this tweet. The fact that it made me laugh, or that the faux pelini is still on his game even after his name sake was fired.
