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.

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.

I need Mindy Drayer and a white board to fully understand what is going on here.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
