If we win out, and Sparty is upset by Penn State I think we get in no matter what else happens. No way the Big12 gets two teams in, and Notre Dame won't get in for pretty much the same reason TCU/Baylor didn't last year. No matter what happens, a win Saturday means a great season to me.
Probably one of my favorites. I still like the gif with Urban (Austin Powers) kicking Saban (Mini-Me) across the room. I can't seem to find it anywhere though.
Everyone remember when Chan Gailey was a successful NFL head coach? Yeah, me neither. Who cares.
Of course we would, but we'd be right. Barkley looked great, and had a great game, but that's it. When Barkley closes out three 200 yard efforts in championship games against top level competition, I'll be more impressed with him.
He'd be a great add. Would definitely look good sitting on the bench behind Zeke.
I'll be wearing my black hoodie and tshirt in Florida. If you're lucky enough to go to the game, it is your responsibility as a Buckeye to wear black.
I'll be wearing one of my black tshirts on the couch. I wouldn't even question it if I were going to the game.
I think living in the South has made me immune to this bullshit. Any time an inbred with a tooth opens their mouth down here it's to tell me how much Ohio sucks or that Urban Meyer is going to have another fake heart attack. It's an old and stupid joke, but now I just roll my eyes when I see it. It serves as a nice reminder that we are better than them in every facet of life.
I don't think anyone would reasonably dispute any of this. Obviously the Big Ten had a weak showing the first week and the SEC dominated the earth. There is already talk about how stacked the SEC West is, how there should be two teams from the SEC in the playoff, how Ohio State would finished 8-4 if they played in the SEC. It's just nonsense. It's one big circle jerk. One team is good because they play another team in that division, who is good because they play another team, and so on until you get to Bama. I don't buy it. They were supposed to be this good last year too, right up until they went 2-5 in bowl games and the Buckeyes knocked them on their asses.
I get what you're saying, but it's hard to be that impressed with teams that haven't proved anything, and even harder when week two isn't even here yet.
The day where we were up against a team with the same record for the last playoff spot has come and gone. There were several teams with an argument last year. The Buckeyes got the nod and removed any doubt. They will get that again, if needed, and then some. Leave the conference bro-love to the South. They need it, we don't.
I'd guess you live somewhere near-ish to Pensacola, and this is the attitude I get from all the Bamas around here as well. Some are not too bad and will just make comments about how much I have to be enjoying being a Buckeye down here, but others make excuses like they always have.
I don't know if there's a future at BAH for me. I'm about done relocating every few years, and that seems to be pretty standard. It's a great company, but I'm tired of moving. Ultimately, my goal is to run my own development team and eventually start my own engineering company. A few buddies from the Marine Corps/Navy who have also deployed as contractors have been kicking around the idea of doing just that. We have the cash to make it happen, we just need the experience/education. I've looked into getting an MBA, but that just doesn't interest me. I'd rather someone else handle that, and do something I enjoy.
Let him. Living where I live, these people bring it up almost daily. It gets exponentially more pathetic the further we get from 2008.
My point was that Ohio State was a championship team last year (times three), and they were better than Virginia Tech.
If we can't beat Virginia Tech with those suspended players then we aren't a championship team. We're just better than them. Period.
This sounds familiar.
Probably TTUN. I don't want to see any losses, but a loss to those scumbags in Harbaugh's first year would get me the most.
