Buckeyes and Alabama are the 2 best teams in the country and I would be surprised if they are not ranked 1 & 2 by the CFP this week.  If both continue to play at the high level they are playing over the next 2 games that will not change.  PSU is a 2 loss team and OSU has beaten Wisconsin and Nebraska.  Sure the committee places a value on on conference championships but when it is obvious one of best teams in the country did not win their championship you still put them in.  And whose to say you don't put a 2nd Big 10 team in the top 4?  The goal is to put the 4 best teams in

All this speculation is nonsense. Urban and Saban have their teams playing November football. Both should win their final 2 regular season games and it will be obvious what is clear now, the Buckeyes and the Crimson Tide are the 2 best teams in the country and will be the top 2 in the CFP no matter what anyone else does. Let the committee figure out 3 & 4

They won't say it but this does not bother the NFL much.  They will get significant fines from both sides and the ratings they will get next season from the first match up  will be huge especially when it is played in Prime Time.  This is an intense rivalry that just went to another level after Saturday night.  It's good for the NFL's bottom line

Jim Harbaugh is on the Ohio 5 yard line in the closing seconds the game tied 21-21 and prays for inspiration. He looks to the heavens and says "God what play should I call." God answers "throw a flat pass to the right". Harbaugh calls the play and it is intercepted and returned all the way for a touchdown giving Ohio State the win. Harbaugh once again looks to the heavens and says "God why did you call that play". God pauses and says "Hey Woody why did we call that play?"

See, God is an OSU fan!

If he had not tried to avoid the checkpoint he may have been let through. They do not give everyone a breathalyzer. He raised suspicions when he tried to avoid the checkpoint

I have a source who would likely have good inside knowledge of this.  Pete's attorneys and baseball's attorneys have been talking.  If Pete gets in it will not be until next year as he does not want to distract the The Big Red Machine 40th Anniversary this summer or the All Star Game in Cincy.  He probably is allowed in next year.

2 Questions:  Who is Cnote?  2.  Do we actually know when the pic was taken?  Could have been taken 3 months ago and is now being posted.  People really need to lighten up on the Weber issue.

He would be a good choice.  He enjoyed some success at Rutgers (not exactly a powerhouse) and won a few bowl games there. Obviously he struggled in the NFL but I seem to remember another coach who struggled as a head coach there and came back to college and has won a few national championships recently.

If he ever plays for the Buckeyes again it will largely be up to him.  He obviously needs to go through rehab and get himself straightened out.  Once he gets passed that point, if he want to plays for the Buckeyes, I am sure Urban and Ohio State can exert considerable influence on the Big 10 to reconsider his ineligibility.  I seem to remember reading that there may be an appeal option.  I think the rule needs to be modified as it's original intent was probably to go after PED's.  As far as I know, ecstasy is not.  I think after they test positive for a second time, consider the kid ineligible but allow them an avenue to get reinstated on a case by case basis.
