Also Michigan State has to win. We need the debate between one loss us and one loss Iowa. MSU would have two losses but just beat us head to head, at home. And their two losses would be to B1G champ Iowa and to Nebraska on a controversial ref call. We would not be selected over them.

I don't care about the number as a number, but here are two things I never, ever, ever want to see in the playoffs: 1) Teams that just lost their conference championship game to a team already in the playoffs 2) Teams that didn't even win their division Neither category belongs.

There is an NCAA rule that specifically states that when the on field referee declares the game over, the score is final. It was instituted to ensure we didn't have endendless protests, court cases, and a million other issues over game results. Under NCAA rules, Duke loses the game.

Strength of schedule is the most meaningless discussing ever with so few games per team. It is why the only way to qualify for a playoff should be to win your conference championship game. Take all the bullshit out of the discussion and eliminate the rankings. You earn it or you dont. Quit your bitching about supposed conference strength and win your way in. Or dont.

Dollars. If you dont understand how the tv contracts work, you wont get it. Sports are dollars. Winning is irrelevant, teams are irrelevant. Cold hard cash. Cold hard financial judgements. Dont fool yourself into thinking its about anything else.

They will remain at 6. Thank goodness these rankings mean nothing at all. This is why a committee is better.

It is not going to matter. Auburn could win by one at the end and nobody will bring it up later in the year because SEC. Margin of  victory only matters for Ohio State.

Its finally here!! I've got my 4GB jiggly gifs lined up and cant wait to start tweeting recruits game updates. Plus we'll know at the first incompletion if the right guy is starting or Urban has lost his mind and picked the overhauled bum who doesn't belong at Ohio State.

I had not considered your TCU/Baylor scenario, but without even tasting it I can say it is delicious.

I don't NEED a million dollars to buy a house, but it sure does make things easier and increase my financial margin of error.

I never root FOR them, but I actually prefer them to be undefeated coming into the Game. First, because then they are a top five team for us to beat. Second, because yanking the carpet out from under their hopes and dreams is so much more satisfying than winning a Hoke-fest. I love when the TSUN bandwagon grows all year and the confidence builds and builds and then BAM. Season over. Enjoy your meaningless bowl game.

Because if we had not obliterated Wisconsin 59-0 we would have been sitting home.

Seriously. If we'd won say,31-13, still a blowout, we would not have a championship.

The more ranked teams on your schedule, the better. And it is best if those ranked teams are big names. Beating a ranked TSUN or Penn State simply counts for more in the minds of human beings when they sit in a room and pick four teams. Beating a ranked Minnesota or Maryland just doesn't do it. Look how little respect beating Michigan State gets even though they've been a top ten team for multiple years.

We always want TSUN, Penn State, and Nebraska ranked as high as possible for the largest "mental bump" possible.

Its not even close: Tebow: 2 national championships Passing: 170.8 rating, 661-995 (66.4%), 88 td, 16 int, 9285 yards Rushing: 2947 yards, 57 td Young 1 national championship Passing: 144.9 rating, 444-718 (61.8%), 44 td, 28 int, 6040 yds Rushing: 3127 yards, 37 yds Young had one good year. Tebow dominated a career.

Rarely watch with other people at all. Even other Buckeye fans. I know what I'm like during games so I watch alone. The pacing, couch standing, jumping, clapping, and yelling are best not inflicted on others.
