2011 is why we have no way in. The CFP was supposed to fix that, so I don't see the committee putting us in. I think conference championship games are essentially play-ins. CFP will be: Oklahoma Bama/Florida Clemson/UNC Sparty/Iowa
Comment 28 Nov 2015
I completely agree. There's absolutely no shot a team that didn't win its division or conference could play for and win a national championship. Even when their only loss was by a field goal to maybe the best team in football. Surely they would never do that to a team like Oklahoma State who lost to someone like Baylor...or Iowa State. Never happen.
Comment 23 Nov 2015

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. 

Comment 19 Nov 2015

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.

Comment 18 Oct 2015

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.

Comment 16 Oct 2015

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.

Comment 13 Oct 2015

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.

Comment 21 Sep 2015

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. 

Comment 20 Sep 2015
I don't think they need to be doing anything that unnecessarily distracts them from the reason they are on scholarship. If they want to worry more about social media than winning games, let them, but give their scholarship to someone that wants it.
Comment 10 Sep 2015

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.

Comment 09 Sep 2015
Meh, week one just wrapped up. Let's leave getting ahead of ourselves to the SEC. "Ten ranked teams in week two, GOAT!!!"
Comment 07 Sep 2015
Some did. There's no way you put TCU or Baylor in ahead of a team like Ohio State that just crushed the number eleven team in the country 59-0 in a championship game.
Comment 05 Sep 2015

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.

Comment 16 Aug 2015

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.

Comment 14 Aug 2015
My degree is the same as the one students on campus earn and is ABET accredited, so I shouldn't have any issues with it being online. I'm actually not sure if there's a way anyone would know without me telling them. That probably wouldn't be the same with the MGEL degree since it appears to be exclusively online. You bring about a good point that I overlooked because it's fairly common to see online degrees in the community I'm currently working in. To be honest, it's probably about 60% name and 40% education. Graduating from tOSU is important to me as silly as some may think it is, but it's worth it to me. I looked at Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin, and Florida, but I keep coming back to tOSU for better or worse. I keep telling my wife I'm going to apply to MIT and move her back North if I get accepted.
Comment 14 Aug 2015
Thanks for the reply. I've taken online classes from other schools as a transient student and it's definitely frustrating when they are poorly executed. The big draw to that specific degree program at tOSU is that it's advertised as 100% online. All of the classes say they can be taken online, so I should be good there.

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. 

Comment 11 Aug 2015

Let him. Living where I live, these people bring it up almost daily. It gets exponentially more pathetic the further we get from 2008.
