I think if Bama loses or more precisely "just gets beaten" and Clemson, Washington, and one of PeeSU/Wiscy put up efforts ala 2014 Buckeyes we'll get our rematch with Bama... in Pasadena. The committee can send conference champs to the playoff and still have the game everyone really wants to see.

II'd be okay with either team winning that sort of game. The ugly sloppy modestly boring game where neither team looks incompetent or terrible but that you constantly wonder why you're not trying to find something else to watch. If it is that kind of game it won't matter which of them wins.

I think best scenario for the Buckeyes is Clemson and Washington winning in non-fluke ways and Wiscy winning in a beat down but more because The Nits constantly shot themselves in the foot than Bucky was awesome. So Wiscy doesn't look all that great and The Nits just looked incompetent. 

Also a Sooner beatdown of Okie State would likely be a positive.

Given what happened the last time Bucky went to Indy I don't know that I'd be that keen on a road trip either. Especially as a win might mean a much more appealing Rose Bowl trip or even a playoff trip. And Wiscy has been in this game four times already.

I'd think PeeSU fans would be facing a similar economic choice as well.

I think it would be amusing to watch the detractors here attempt to play an online match of Call of Duty.

My question is if it is all on Nugent? Is there some other problem in the kicking game? And of course one has to ask if the backup is actually better. Are the Bengals the only team with a kicking problem? Is Nugent just an easy target of blame? There was some ugly stuff on Sunday well aside of the kicking.

Some of that, IMHO, is that there is almost too much emphasis on trying to achieve offensive balance (run/pass) and not enough emphasis and taking what the defense gives you.

Exactly. It seems to me every game the offense is having trouble they could line up with the strong side of the formation to the wide side of the field and pound it around that end for 3 or 4 per carry and drive the field and score but they won't just do that. They have to run "our offense." They want to be old school we're tougher than you football but don't seem to want to take that boring 20 play drive that would have made Woody proud.

Fair enough. I'd had a lot to drink at that point and I was all, "We're going to punch it in and win but will we leave them too much time?" Then there's no time left on the clock and we're trailing and I'm back at the end of the PSU game screaming "Time Out! Time Out! Time Out! Don't do this again!!!!!. Weren't we just about to win?!!!???"

No, as Coach Meyer is going to look for guys that want to compete and don't shy away from it. Potential recruits ought to look at the troubles in the passing game and see an opportunity to beat the guys we have for playing time. The guys who don't probably wouldn't fit here anyway so what would we be missing if they don't commit?  

Comment 28 Nov 2016

I just think the whole conference champion thing is still going to come into play. If Clemson lays a beatdown on VT and the Huskies lay one on Colorado along with Bama taking care of business we're left with two more games where a team can make a statement and leave us sitting aside despite our resume. 

I guess it comes down to what the real philosophy of the committee is. If they're set on the best then we might be a lock but if they try to have their cake and eat it too about the best teams and settling it on the field we could be left out if the Nits crush Wiscy. 

The having faith part trusts that the committee will do whatever is in the committee's best interest which most likely is putting OSU in but I don't trust that thought isn't just me being a homer. I might rather just go to the Rose Bowl and beat up on one of those Pac-12 crap defenses. 

Remember if you start out depressed everything is a pleasant surprise. (Not actually depressed as we beat TTUN and are 11-1 and think the worst that could come from this is a Rose Bowl bid which may be more in the committee's best interest than us in the playoff.)

Not necessarily. You send one guy in to pull the alarm as the other guy drives around the block. When he's heading down the street, text the guy to pull the alarm, he runs out down the street to get in as you wait for people to filter out of the building. Most folks don't move that fast when an alarm goes off even with regular drills. There's always a "What's going on?" moment.
