And a lot of the easy baskets came when some of the younger guys were in there from what I can tell. Thompson and Scott will lead this team.
They also beat Auburn, LSU and A&M. I agree that OSU should be in the top 4 if they win out over Miss State but not that Ole Miss is "struggling". In fact they are probably having their best year since Eli Manning was there (please don't fact check me).
Pessimistic Buckeye Pessimist, imo.
”...one of the great secrets of human nature is that the one thing people want more than love, security, sex, chocolate or big-screen TV's is to feel hard done by. Why? Because being hard done by is the shit. Feeling hard done by is the sweetest of drugs. If you're being persecuted -- it must mean you're doing the right thing, right? You get the mellow buzz of the moral high ground, but without arrogantly claiming it as your own. You get an instant, supportive community in a big dark scary world of such scope it may well literally be beyond rational human processing. When you are hard done by, you get purpose in a life where otherwise, you'd have to find your own. And when you ride that high, then no amount of logic, no pointing out that in actuality you and your beliefs are at a high point of popularity and influence for the last hundred years -- is going to pry that sweet crack-pipe of moral indignation from your hands.
Ohio State under Urban is pretty damn amazing at football. Embrace it.
Initially misunderstood the post and replied too fast. If he only camped with Miss. State due to the early commit then he may not have any legit offers from those other big schools still on the table. This does sound pretty ugly.
Clearly, their program stock is on the rise and the class is probably already over-filled.
He has 1st round talent. I didn't expect him back in 2015 so getting him back for championship season can only be good even if he is just coming in to rush the passer on 3rd down. Wouldn't be shocked at all if he still got drafted relatively high this year even with the "issues" he's had.
Zmoty9 has been all over this story from the beginning.
I need Mindy Drayer and a white board to fully understand what is going on here.
Sometimes the more experienced players are just better... he still has a high ceiling and could still easily start 2-4 years for us depending how things shuffle around as guys graduate or (knock on wood) get hurt. People tend to get too attached as they follow recruiting expecting several guys to come right in and do what Bosa did.
Versatile, freak athlete from Cincinnati who is going to be the friggin' man some day.
If you are healthy and haven't had the reps on defense and end up being a turnstile, does making a few threes really make up for that?
There is a large Canadian that would fit in nicely here.
2 of the computer rankings also now include margin of victory and other factors that they had to strip out for the BCS. Probably wouldn't change the answer much since top and bottom computer are thrown out for each team. But really the BCS became completely in line with the polls by the end.
Right. Rather than desperation I might question whether he's even pulling the strings on something like this at this point.
This team is going to be loaded next year whether Braxton or JT is the QB. While that might end up being a really tough decision to make, you can't really go that wrong.
They redshirted Thomas and Marshall last year too... He obviously has played worse in games than he did in camp/practice. He just doesn't seem to attack the ball in the air.
Is Mike Bianchi making it up to Columbus for Urban's pressers? Wondering who asked about the UF Muschamp firing.
So you are giving up on the national title possibilities for this year!??
If Nebraska fires Pelini I'm pretty worried that's a possibility with his Texas ties. There's also potential Big 12 jobs. But I voted yes because I think it is more likely he stays.
Not sure what you want him to do differently though. This is a pretty clear situation for anyone outside of Tallahassee to handle.
It's a coinflip imo. Need a little bit of help but not a ton.
They are going to carry him off the field Earle style after they beat FSU.
I'm guessing they dropped on the 20% of ballots where the pollster is paying attention to the actual games. The rest are on autopilot and only react to wins/losses. 4 through 7 is extremely tight at this point in my opinion. Rooting heavy for Texas and for more of the 2nd tier Big 12 teams to lose. Oklahoma was losing to Texas Tech which may have had some impact on the playoff poll. FSU is still going to be in with 0 losses but Notre Dame losing doesn't help them if they do lose a game.
Winter is coming.
And the only reason we didn't cover is because conservative strategy running the clock out with a 10 point lead. Which was perfectly reasonable.
