Part of what Meyer does is to mold boys into men who are productive members of society both on and off the field.  I know he has a football program to run but teaching those boys to be responsible adults is more important than how well they play football.  They cannot play the game forever.  To say Meyer held him back is not seeing the full picture.  If Meyer had put him on the field late in 2015 he would have lost a year of eligibility and what happened late last summer would likely still have happened and he would only have 2 years of eligibility left rather than the 3 he now has.  Meyer did the right thing.  Although it is likely Gibson leaves there is still the possibility he stays.  If he does leave his chances for success in life will be greater because because of the short time he spent in Meyer's program.

Part of me wants to see him pick FSU since I have a good friend's daughter in her freshman year there.  It would still tick off the TTUN fan base just not quite as much if he were to pick The Buckeyes.   We will all find out tomorrow

I always expected Harbaugh to stay at TTUN for 3-5 years before jumping back to the NFL.  He has had a taste of the NFL and he probably likes it better.  He could jump back now or he's thinking if he waits there may be a better opportunity down the road.  He will not finish his coaching career in college.

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
