11 straight wins, undisputed conference champion, second and third string quarterback, did NOT schedule an FCS opponent, what more can you say? The Big 12 is a mess and needs to have a conference championship game, OSU is clearly a top 4 team and should be in the playoff.
Funny what I just found on CBS Sports:
The full College Football Playoff Rankings for Dec. 2:
1. Alabama (11-1)
2. Oregon (11-1)
3. TCU (10-1)
4. Florida State (11-1)
5. Ohio State (11-1)
Win and we're in! I still don't think there is any way the committee can keep out a one loss B1G champion team. OSU is a strong national brand that travels very well, good for ticket sales and TV ratings. Sorry Big 12, time to add a championship game.
Torrance Gibson....strange cat.
Oh yeah...and Michigan still sucks!
If this game would have happened within the past few years, I would not have been that impressed. But this is exactly what THIS team needed following such a bad game last week. We have so many young guys who have not seen much game time, and this type of victory is great for confidence and morale. The more live reps for all the young guys, especially JT, the better. This season is going to be one of those seasons where the team is much improved each week and the finished product at the end of the year will be so much different than the team that came out of the tunnel in Maryland the opening week. IF Braxton does decide to come back next year, this team will be seasoned and ready to really make a run next year. And if Barrett becomes a good to great QB, that would be a great problem to have heading into next season.
Devin Smith is a great big play kinda guy, consistency is key though. There were too many games last year where he'd disappear and Philly Brown would be the only receiver to get open. I wanna see more versatility this year outta Smith, but I do love the straight line speed he has.
Did Mark May call the double digit upset, what a douche! Vonn Bell is finally starting and Darron Lee is going to be one of those diamond in the rough kind of kids. Love it!
The pollsters are always hating on us, just go out and win! With JT getting more comfortable each day and all the younger guys getting more game day experience, we're only gonna get better each week. The pollsters can't ignore us if we just keep winning.
This kid is obviously the brains of the family if he is giving Ohio State a long hard look.
This is a football league for eight year old kids people, this should be a non story. No police report is needed, only an apology from Craig and everyone can move on with their lives. This is not the way to set an example for kids.
Best part of this picture...Coach Coombs' face.
How can the four letter word joke-of-a-network keep manufacturing stats to suggest how bad OSU is? Doesn't this same entity rank of our recruiting classes in the top 5-10 every single year? They say OSU has no credibility, they should take a long look at themselves. OSU must only recruit the slowest players rated in the top 300 recruits every year.
I am a Buckeye born and raised in Michigan. After watching this hilarious game I posted on Facebook that I wondered if Brady Hoke still thought scUM could win the B1G. Two of my "friends" called me classless via Facebook comment. Seriously? Funny how the scUM fans can't take the medicine they've been dishing out since the beginning of time. Can't wait for the beat down in AA in a few weeks!
Ohio State 38
27 days, not that I'm counting or anything.
Very impressed after reading this interview, I love having a quality kid coming to the program and actively recruiting other kids. Welcome to Buckeye Nation Dame!
Rod Smith really pulled a 180 last year. I used to get so nervous when he would get chances thinking he would cough up the ball, now it's great to see him come in with a fresh set of legs and gash up the middle for 6-7 yards or catch one out of the backfield. We are stacked at the RB with some nice talent coming in, should be exciting to watch this year.
You can't blame the guy for leaving early, it's a weak draft this year and he can make himself some dollars. It sucks that's he gone, but it was great watching him the past three years. I wish him the best!
This kid sounds like a freak of nature given his size and speed. I know Urbz is a great recruiter, but I guess I'm still not used to the kind of talent he brings in, it's awesome! GO BUCKS!!!
This one stings, it's like the Bucks realized as soon as they were down 20 that they were bigger and more athletic and maybe should start taking it to the rack every possession. Still a great season, but a very disappointing loss. Time for football season!
