Comment 22 Sep 2014

I wouldn't say Cincy is a lesser school than TT, lesser conference sure. But in reality TT might be the 5th best team in that state and not winning championships. Whereas Cincy is the #2 big school in Ohio and is a competing for their conference title every year. Also, who knows if UC will join a bigger conference with expansion.

Sec east is weak sauce this year. All have at least 1 loss already so it's down to the west in that spot. PAC 12 is Oregon's to lose IMO.   OU or BU if undefeated will go. I have a feeling FSU will lose to ND but I hate both and believe ND will lose at some point. To me it's whose more appealing in the ACC/B1G champ. If it's FSU we are screwed.

But what opinion are they using when they don't drop bama for struggling with a now 1 win WVU team or FSU with okie state and last night. If you don't believe OSU is good without miller then let their play on the field prove that. Nothing was proven in week 1.... Now it sure was in VT. Ultimately teams will drop themselves if it's true and OSU did. That's the problem with polls they hold firm a bias and make excuses to keep teams elevated. A mid season poll would be better.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I am not saying your opinion is not without merit. Just saying you saw the product after week 1 and compared to the rest every bit as good. You didn't see pollsters drop UGA when they had injuries and their team became less potent last season. They dropped due to the losses and performance because they couldn't cope with the missing personnel. But yes let's focus on UC, who may have been looking past Miami last night

Sorry, I believe teams should be evaluated based on play on the field not on assumptions. I guess that makes me old school. 

Toolface. I agree I may have went too far... But this isn't the first time I have seen Cincy post the same bs opinion to ridicule a poster/posters... As much as he is tired of hearing people's opinions on certain matters I am tired of hearing his played out miller injury excuse. Bottom line is after week 1 you really couldn't say if OSU is worthy of dropping since pretty much everyone else played down. If anything you could make a case OSU should have moved up because they took care of business w/out miller and I can use the injury theory both ways. 

Comment 21 Sep 2014

What I am saying is that you cannot sit there and say 100% OSU dropped because of injury especially after the first game. You can assume OSU is not as good w/out Miller which is true. But it makes zero sense to drop a team that won by 17 on the road and had every bit of a convincing win as the other top teams who didn't drop. The voters saw the product of a miller-less OSU team. Therefore after week 1 you cannot really use the excuse that everything has changed due to an injury. They won by as much as they were predicted to had miller not been injured. There are far more valid reasons to drop OSU than the injury stance you have defended. The shaky start, rush yards given up, no run game, etc... More hold water than the sole injury theory and I accept it because it's true because it's quite possible the same result happens week 1 with Miller. I apologize , but I am far from a homer and I will defend anyone that brings up a valid point. Which is why when you brought up his injury and used your OPINION and tried to pass it off as fact to criticize the first poster is where I take offense. This again proves why pre season polls are stupid because you are not judging on the actual game as the voters did in week 1 if we go solely on the Injury theory.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I guess you forgot where you called me a homer.... I have not been posting for approval from others guy. I am posting to show you how incredibly stupid your opinion is and how it can be so easily picked apart. I am still waiting for you to post proof of a team being dropped in the polls solely due to an injury and not on poor play and losses. Until you have legitimate proof it's only an opinion which makes your argument weak at best and if people agree with that so be it. But it's a fact that you drop based on your performance and losses, not on assumptions after games are played. In this case Fact > Opinion. Deal with it guy.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

My logic is not flawed dumbass, it's a fact that you drop based on poor play and losses. What makes you stupid is that you are trying to pass an OPINION off as if it is a fact. You have absolutely no proof to back up your opinion. And typically when a star player gets injured a team plays poorly or loses thus makes my point more valid. So there is a correlation with injuries and team performance. However your stance has been solely on injury rather than performance. And after week 1 OSU played every bit as well as the top teams did so therefore your injury theory is flat out dumb. I honestly don't give a fuck, just pointing out how you are wrong in trying to pass an opinion off as a fact when you have no proof what so ever to back it up and therefore have no grounds to criticize the first comment you replied to. And I am still waiting on you to provide proof of a team dropping in the polls solely due to injuries since you are trying to pass it off as a fact. Don't get mad because your OPINION is open to be picked apart because of your flawed logic.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Yes because Tressel never lost to mediocre teams.

imo the jury is still out on VT, ECU is legit and  GT is probably the favorite to win that division. VT cannot afford to make mistakes on offense. They beat us because we made more than them as simple as that.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Like I said its irrelevant what happens after games are played therefore dropping a team based on an injury makes no sense considering OSU covered the original spread of 17 when miller was thought to be playing. You keep saying this injury bs as if it's a legitimate reason.... I have never seen a team drop because of an injury. I have seen them drop for poor play and losses. So please show me other teams that dropped solely on injuries.... To which I say you won't find any to back up my whole point and thus bring you back to the fact that your whole theory is dumb and makes you a dumbass. Trust me guy I don't believe OSU got dropped because the media is against us, we dropped because we didn't play well which is more of a valid reason than your injury theory dumbass. Sorry you can't figure out that your logic is flawed and full of holes.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Or Harbaugh.... Which surprise's me with how him and the front office don't get along in SF. IMO he wins so who cares if he is a dick to you.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

If you call me a homer I call you a dumbass for making dumbass comments don't get butthurt guy. Petty broken vertebrae = not 100% and missed a game therefore not the same player. Like I said I am fine with dropping OSU for not playing a complete game against Navy. You are the dumbass saying it's because miller is gone after game 1 is in the books. I can point to several lackluster performances that didn't drop teams who had fewer question marks on their roster than OSU did. But please go on how we rank teams on injuries and not on performance....

Comment 21 Sep 2014

I would say better, but not significantly better considering the close games and loses the other 3 have in comparison to Minnesota 

Comment 20 Sep 2014

Sec fanboys will just say mizzou is not a true sec team... But it does not take away a good win by IU
