I want to downvote this so badly!
That's true for the team. But the institution continues to hero-worship a man who enabled child rape for 35 years. Congrats to the PSU football team. Fuck PSU the institution.
Exactly. The whole problem is that football was always placed at the top of the priority list (above things like preventing child rape), and it looks like that is as true as ever. Genuine healing begins by actually manning up and doing the right thing off the field (which has yet to occur), not from the scoreboard at the end of a game. No kid of mine will ever have anything to do with the morally bankrupt institution that is Penn State.
What's the gist of what they said? I watched the game, but didn't listen listen to any of the comments.
1 loss > 2 losses
The figures might have been pulled from a document titled FBS Records (page 100), which I think is an NCAA document. But the math in it doesn't seem to add up. Unless I'm missing something.
With OSU's adjusted to 72.6% after vacated wins.
OP, what was your source? I ran the numbers from sports-reference.com, which came out to a 72.8% all-time winning percentage for OSU and 71.6% for TTUN.
He does have a perfect record, of sorts.
At this event, there will be blood on the red carpet.
The prospect of three B1G teams in the playoff does have a certain appeal to it. First, it would completely troll the other conferences. Second, it would be funny to watch PSU or TTUN beat their chest about getting into the playoffs and then get humiliated by Bama (not saying that outcome is automatic, but certainly plausible.) Third, I'd be comfortable with a rematch against either PSU or TTUN, because I think we could beat both of them by more than the differential of our last games, removing any doubt about which team is better. Fourth, if one other B1G team gets in, I want a second to as well, so that the first one doesn't feel as special.
Yes, I'm fine with most of these reasons being evil.
Same here. So do we just root for the higher ranked team in every matchup? (Including Wisconsin obviously)
I'm surprised that people in this thread seem to object to the conclusion so much. I wouldn't be shocked at all if it were true, just like I wouldn't be shocked at all if further examination showed the opposite to be true.
The main point though, is that I for one, welcome our new robot overlords.
Do disputed national champion 'ships count?
Hopefully Peppers will be gone between the Browns' first two picks. There won't be any QB worth taking with their first pick over the DL talent available. If the Browns did take Peppers with their second pick, it would be an awesome train wreck to watch (and I say that as a Browns fan)
So they'll be called the "Salt-Blue"?
is there a valtrex bowl?
Yes, on his nightstand.
I probably would too. But then again, if I was him, people would be blaming him/me for OSU going 0-12. NFL evaluators would be saying "Hooker? I hardly even know her!"
Isn't mentioning the Ravens in an Ohio-based football forum against the no-politics commenting policy? (Yes, we're still bitterly disappointed about The Move. Although whenever I type "bitterly disappointed" now, I actually feel happy. Because schadenfreude. Weirdly awesome.)
Now that we've paid off the B1G refs, how much do we have to pay off the NFL evaluators to give him a late-round grade?
