Many commenters here have explained the "Vegas point spread" thing = Vegas sets the 'spread' to induce BETTING (not, as some worrywarts on here believe, to induce VOMITING).  Vegas operatives in sports betting DO NOT GIVE A RIP about who really "wins or loses" -- they make sure they make their money either way. 

Clear?

Alabama Crimson Tide

Ranked #1 by the Playoff Committee

Fans, commentariat, public figures all -- "After January 1st, who do you think 'Bama will get next?"

Answer = "Each other -- in their Spring Game."

I know them all, because they all were my favorites in the 70's!

Would you like a comprehensive list?

I found this (a Rutgers article December 4th) ---

One of the greatest benefits of earning a trip to a bowl game is the additional practices afforded to a team. And contrary to popular belief, bowl practices aren't capped at 15.

"(It's) a common misconception that's been around for years," NCAA spokesman Christopher Radford said. "There is no specific limit on the number of practices a team may hold while preparing for a bowl game, but standard NCAA rules apply for participation in practice or other athletically related activities. Same as the regular season, these rules limit practice and other athletic activities to a maximum of four hours per day and 20 hours per week."

The myth is likely tied to the rules for spring practice, as teams are limited to 15 practice sessions in the spring. With no limit on the amount of practices, there's added benefit to playing in a bowl later in the calendar.   [By Dan Duggan | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

I'm sure he calls plays they ran in practice.  

<I guess sometimes Coach Herman just needs to get down on the field and show them the right way to run the play>

Smart stating our senior (and Juniors) class members who will leave the fold by next season.

Recruiting talent, and getting them game reps is paramount because -- for all of us representing Buckeye Nation, -- we are entering a new era of 3-n-done players.  These remarkable men being recruited to the Buckeyes by Urban & Co. are gonna see field time as Freshmen.

They. Are. That. Good.

You mentioned MayDay and his reaction to Lou stating the facts of the past week for Ohio State, replacement QB and burying a teammate.  I saw the same body language from MayDay -- he did role his eyes.  

Unbelieveable.

WOW.  I say -- this is a complete and utter nonsensical stance/position/policy/rule by the NCAA.   IF they reviewed this they might realize it defeats the purpose of "student-athlete" in the sense a student's "parental units" are EXCLUDED from the enjoyment they have earned for providing a PROFIT VEHICLE to said institution/system/sport cabal.  

The Ohio State University needs to push back against this immediately.  Why is this diff'rent, y'all askin' me?  'Cause the Buckeyes didn't KNOW anything about this situation until AFTER the regular season concluded -- so it COULD NOT have been (actually) planned for.  There wasn't any pre-signing on NLI Day promise made to anyone.  There was nothing to barter with.  This playoff involves the possibility of TWO games, not just one 'bowl' game.

Yeah, I'm pissed.
