Zombie Woodruff for B1G COY! 

Comment 03 Dec 2014

Here's hoping there's no "is Die Hard a Christmas movie" discussion.  Or did I just start one?  

Christmas Vacation is #1 for me, and it's not close.

George Woodruff (Penn, 1892-1901; Illinois, 1903; Carlisle, 2005), 142-25-2, .846.
Urban Meyer (Bowling Green, 2001-02; Utah, 2003-04; Florida, 2005-10; Ohio State, 2012-14), 139-26, .842.
Barry Switzer (Oklahoma (1973-88), 157-29-4, .837.

Certainly an interesting way to look at it/interpret the wording, but I think you might be overthinking it. Because there's no way for people outside the room to keep the committee honest as far as how/who they put at a given ranking, they could set things up the way you're describing and just say they ranked a team at 4 because of reasons A, B, and C.

his throwing motion when we have seen it, his running style in every game he's been in, HS tapes, and did you miss the part where I said his size?  I think we do have a decent idea of his skillset, otherwise I'd have compared him to Dan Marino, Justin Zwick, and David Garrard if we didn't know anything about him.

First thing, no way in hell the Big12 gets 2 teams in. 

Secondly, Baylor's loss to WV is better than our loss to VT? Not sure how, but... ok? I'll take OSU's win IN East Lansing (both being a road game and how we won) over Baylor's shootout win at home over TCU. 

Pat Forde is a mouth breather.
