I think the oozing speed/talent yet oozing youth dynamic is going to hurt in any game we can all agree to be "close" - even at this point and even on paper. With completely unscientific thinking, I'll assign Cincy, Maryland, Penn State, and Sparty as such (the Terps are the wild card) and assume a split in those games. The road factor could be brutal after watching the disarray against the Hokies.

The rest of the schedule sets up well. It kills me, but that leaves us with 9-3. So, I'll go with 10-2, because that's what I want (at a minimum).

Who the F knows, right?

It will be a battle, but I sincerely hope I'm stunned in the opposite way as I was on Hokie-pocalypse.

Gotta think there will be no snoozing on anyone else this season and the extra week should be a huge advantage (nothing likely to be learned from Cincy's next opponent). Still - I always go white-knuckle unless it's a 2-3 TD difference.

"Chip away at a 10 nothing lead" - BTN unintentionally ironic quote of the year

Easy:

  1. Alabama
  2. Florida State (but Alabama probably deserves this spot too)
  3. All non-Alabama SEC tied
  4. Alabama
  5. Oregon (if they run the table, they might edge out Alabama and an SEC tomato can for a place in the playoff)

Man, Bama might be too tired to play Southern Miss later today.

Comment 11 Sep 2014

My friends and I were in NYC for Labor Day weekend and - going into a very late night - I stepped outside of a diner and looked up at the Towers. They were so massive from certain vantages in Manhattan; almost like looking through a fish-eye lens.

A week and a day later, I arrived at work in D.C. just after the first Tower was hit. There was growing chatter all around the office, everyone's Internet was jamming up, and my mom called. She told me what happened. Instead of making the connection, I was convinced that something like a small tour plane or similar had bonked off the building and there would be some terrible - but minor - loss of life.

Three hours later, I was one of the last to leave our building. The streets had been jammed with cars and people streaming out for what seemed like forever. You could see the smoke from the Pentagon from nearly any point in D.C. Fighter jets were scrambling overhead for the rest of the day. I walked several miles to get home. Did not even consider taking the Metro.

P.S. This is one of the few times I've shared this - strange times. Thanks for starting this thread.

The 2014 Buckeyes are not a bad team, simply one trying to understand their own strengths.

Breathe. Repeat. Better.
