I guess if you weigh winning the SEC last year over losing to us H2H then you could say that puts them over us, but I don't think that's the case.  JMO.  The SEC was horrendously overrated last year outside of Bama, so them making their way back to the playoffs doesn't really mean as much when you factor that in.  I'd go as far as saying we had a better regular season than they did in 2015, we just happened to be in a division with another CFB Playoff Caliber team.  Something they didn't have to worry about.  They have championship expectations every year because there's no one else in the SEC that has them. 

As for the recruiting sites, they can be wrong.  They were in 2013, unless you somehow think Joey Bosa would have been the 7th best recruit in Bama's class had he lost his mind and committed there instead.

10 of the 13 members of the CFB Playoff Committee are either current AD's or former HC's, so your definition of not having anything to do with CFB is pretty interesting. 

I'll say it again, there is no sane argument one can make that anyone had a better 2013 recruiting class than us.  Yes, some guys make money ranking the potential of HS athletes but earing income that way doesn't automatically make you correct.  They got 2013 wrong, it happens. 

Comment 22 Apr 2016

So you somehow think Alabama outrecruited Ohio State in the 2013 class because some websites that have no affiliation with CFB say so?  Gonna disagree with that, recruiting rankings are guesses by people who really don't matter.  There's no sane way to look at those classes and make an intelligent argument that Bama's was better.

I mean, if we're using the transitive property then we could also say its 0-2 for Saban.  Afterall, they lost to Ole Miss who lost to UF who got waxed by scUM in their Bowl, the same scUM we destroyed in that Whore of a City up north.  IMO, we beat Bama and Clemson if we go to the Playoffs, but it took that loss to MSU to wake us up which was sad.

I think the vows are exactly why Martin played Snow's story out like that.  Now he is free to leave the watch without breaking them, and I hope before he leaves he throws Ollie off the top of the wall.

If they're intent is to make another standalone Batman trilogy, then I agree this would be a great start.  Problem is they are incorporating this all into a DCCU, which has stumbled out of the gates.  Warner Brothers would be smart to start fresh now with the DCCU and set the stories up right before Snyder does even more damage.  Affleck's Batman could certainly be part of that fresh start, he wasn't bad in BvS at all.  Problem is Snyder gave him a horrendous storyline and completely failed to give his character any depth.  As a fan I wish WB would cut their losses, because I would LOVE to see them get this all right.

I did when he was committed here, now he's not.  He's at scUM, F them.  I wouldn't trade any player or commit we have for anyone, if they choose to leave on their own then that's their right and I respect it.

His attorney has said a lot of things, but 2nd Degree Murder trumps the gun charge so them not adding one on at this point doesn't make Hayes carrying a gun legal.  Hayes has a history of illegally possessing a firearm, so I don't think I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.  Esp after his attorney claimed Smith was the aggressor even though Hayes smashed his H2 into the back of Smith's Mercedes to set this whole confrontation off.

I wouldn't trade any OSU commit for anyone, once you're in the family then Buckeye For Life to me.

Comment 13 Apr 2016

Being ashamed of what?  Had Smith pulled his gun, which he was legally carrying, and killed this PoS after it slammed into him with a Hummer and followed that up with confronting him while illegally possessing a firearm I would have applauded him.  Nothing to be ashamed of at all.

I realize that members of Universities hold positions within the NCAA, but that doesn't mean the NCAA is automatically doing some great services for Student Athletes.  Ohio State provides its athletes with first class services across the board, does the NCAA help them with that?  IMO they more hinder it by limiting said services.  Yes, some limits are needed but the degree to which they go is laughable sometimes.  So the NCAA is a collection of Conference reps that oversee all Universities are playing on an even field basically.  They are like the Roger Goodell of CFB if you will. But those NCAA reps are performing what duties to their student athletes while on NCAA detail?  Yet the NCAA made what, a Billion dollars last year?  Did all that money go to the 1300 schools they oversee?  If not, I can't see how the NCAA and the Colleges/Conferences are exactly the same thing. 

Comment 11 Apr 2016

I agree with the more harm coming from that part, but also think its unfair to not let them strike when the iron is hot.  I think the schools should set up a trust for them that is held until they are no longer an active player.

Comment 11 Apr 2016

No, the NCAA is the entity that's supposed to govern them.  Does Ohio State really rely on the NCAA to help them set up games for their athletic programs?  I think not.
