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.

I know people like to talk about it, but realistically we are never going to see two teams from the same conference. Think about after the conference championship games- you are going to have five champions and four slots. Every other team (except ND) either just lost in the conference championship games or didnt even win their division. You're going to take someone who didnt earn a thing (non-div winner) or someone who you just saw lose over not one, but two conference champions? Never going to happen. Thr conference championship games are effectively the first round of the playoffs.

Not where I work. Even in the 10+ inch days we were expected to be in.

Comment 30 Jul 2015

Oh yeah, love the whole state. Phoenix is actually my least favorite part, but it's where I could get a job to let me move. 

Comment 30 Jul 2015

That's part of it.....been in the DC area for the last 25ish years after moving out of Ohio, and I am done with winter. No more snow.

Comment 30 Jul 2015

Oh and DJ,you leave Arizona alone. I'm moving to Phoenix tomorrow morning. In late July.

Gotta say, Dan Mullen's idea isn't a bad one. I think I would raise the gpa though. Make it 2.75 get the fifth year of eligibility. It shouldn't be easy and should reward higher levels of student in the word student-athlete. Meanwhile those toward the athlete side can still academic redshirt or use four years.
