Your argument is that is this was Winston, we would all be making a huge deal about it...

You should be VERY thankful we don't have Winston. Braxton is one of the few star athletes in the world to go through his career by only making headlines with his performances on Saturday's. Everywhere you look there is crap going on off the field with these premadonna athletes. Braxton is not one of these. The fact that you are looking for something to complain about is down right ludicrous. Braxton has been a 4 year star at one of the biggest, media crazed instituitions in the NCAA, and essentially has a spotless record off the field, and a damn near perfect record on the field.

Go home kid, you're drunk.

I think the cut off date may be a little misleading. That is most likely indicating the cut off date for users to be able to ship a hard copy ticket to you.

For the 2011 Sugar Bowl vs Arkansas, I purchased tickets via StubHub the night before the game. We picked up our tickets in New Orleans on gameday at the StubHub kiosk. I would have to imagine with the magnitude of this game, StubHub would provide similar services this year.

100% agree. He gets more right than wrong for sure. And it doesn't bother me. I actually am I fan of this strategy. I was merely saying it was funny that right after I acknowledged a flawlessly executed game, we get hit with that.

Comment 12 Dec 2014

You can set a clock to it.

I had just texted my brother during the B1GCG saying, "wow, perfect game by the Buckeyes." Right as I hit send., Clinton has his weekly shank out of bounds. All I could do was laugh at that point...

Comment 11 Dec 2014

There is certainly plenty of bulletin board material. The Bucks have offically been given zero chance in this one. One local radio talking head here (actually not Finebaum) called the matchup with Ohio State a bye week for Bama.

I think this all plays in our favor. For the first time in a long time on Saturday, I watched a pissed off football team play. They were flying around the field. Our defense wanted every tackle to hurt. Just as Urban has been wanting, they coached angry. They played angry.

Stay. Angry. Buckeyes.

Question. When putting in for the lottery, when do you find out if you win or not?

I would hate to be waiting, go buy tickets on stubhub, only to find out a week later that I won the lottery...

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Tackle him in space. Alot of his damage comes on short passes that he makes plays in space. If we tackle in space, we can LIMIT him. He will still get his touches though...

Location is based on only one thing.

The #1 seed will play in the venue closest to them.

All other pieces of the puzzle fall into place after that. Example:  Alabama being the #1 seed will play in New Orleans, vs #4. Thus, #2 and #3 would play in Rose Bowl. Likewise, if for whatever reason Oregon is #1 seed, they would play in Rose Bowl vs #4, and #2 and #3 would play in New Orleans.

From the looks of things, it looks like Oregon will be in the Rose Bowl regarless.

1. Miss St will be in the top 4 as long as Alabama has a chance to lose. They can't drop Miss. St., have Alabama lose then look like jackasses when they randomly throw Miss St back in. They are hedging their bets on an SEC team.

This may be the most true statement in this entire  forum post. It is all about covering their own ass. The committee is making sure they have ONE SEC team in the playoffs. They have to keep Miss St in striking distance, should Bama lose to Auburn or lose to a weak Mizzou team in the coming weeks. As soon as Bama "clinches" their spot in the final 4, Miss State becomes irrelevant to the committee, and they will drop.

This is just what they are opening up at. Wait until a few days before the game, and buy them on Stubhub. Stubhub has pickup windows at all major events now, so you do not have to ship the tickets.

When OSU played in the Sugar Bowl a few years back, I bought tickets the night before. Paid about $50 a piece for 30 yard line seats. I was pretty nervous driving all the way to New Orleans with no tickets in my hand, but the pickup process at the Stubhub kiosk was one of the more simple things I have ever done.

Last year for the National Championship game in Cali, just to prove a point, my buddy waited until game day to buy tickets. Paid $60 bucks for a seat the morning of the game. To the National Championship game.

I checked, and do not see it mentioned yet, which is a crying shame...

And a follow up to this... Birm, with it being a commitment, do you know if they would be allowed to take pictures? I feel like that has got to be against the rules somewhere, just curious. That could be cool to see if it was allowed...

Comment 18 Nov 2014

Awesome idea! Reading a recruits "journal" of an official vist will be as close as it gets to being a 5* prospect for me.. Would love to get a little taste of the process


Comment 13 Nov 2014

Alabama is a MUCH better team at home than they are on the road. I personally think MSU is overrated. Sure they beat an Auburn team at home, but we all just saw how terrible that Auburn defense is.And they beat a LSU team, but that LSU offense is horrible. Alabama also has some crazy stat of being favored in 40 something straight games. They are a Vegas darling.

Comment 12 Nov 2014

I believe I mentioned the fact their is no Big 12 champ game in my point about only one Big 12 team making it, but I suppose it could (although less likely) be an argument for us to jump Bay/TCU, even if FSU wins out.

Comment 12 Nov 2014

Here is how I see it playing out… AT THIS MOMENT, if all plays out as expected, OSU would finish at #5.

1. Bama / Miss State winner
2. Oregon / Arizona St winner
3. FSU
4. Baylor / TCU
5. OSU

I think the SEC eliminates one of their contenders, and I do not realistically see a scenario where they put both SEC teams in. (A 1 loss MSU team may be ranked higher initially, but we should jump them after conf championship week) Nor a scenario where they put both Baylor and TCU in, especially since they don’t have a conf champ game. Oregon and ASU playing in the PAC champ game will eliminate one.

Here is, IMO, the key factor for OSU…. FSU goes down somewhere. Maybe this week against The U. Maybe against Florida… Just need it to happen somewhere.

In that case, the rankings SHOULD shape up as follows:

1. Bama / MSU
2. Oregon / ASU
3. Baylor / TCU
4. OSU – coming off a win in the B1G CG against (hopefully) a top 10 Nebraska team.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Besides OSU winning out, we cannot under estimate the importance of Nebraska winning out. This may be the next most important thing to help the Buckeye's case. It is essential for OSU to beat a top 10 one loss Nebraska team in the B1G Championship game, on the national stage. This could be the boost we need to propel us over Baylor /TCU, neither of which play a tough opponent for the rest of the year.

Gosth Buckeyeths!

Comment 09 Nov 2014

It almost looked like he thought it was 4th down. It would have made much more sense to take a knee and then do that the following play... Oh well, JT played essentially a flawless game, I certainly won't hold this against him!
