#1 Baylor vs. #4 Alabama and #2 Ohio State vs. #3 Clemson, with Ohio State and Alabama in the finals.
I'm not against your opinion, man. I'm not. I agree too that OSU should score 30+ every game. That said, we saw what happened with NIU and IU (and Hawaii and WMU to a degree). At this point, nothing would surprise me. This is the best D Ohio State's played all year.
Urban said yesterday that Penn State has a top 10 national defense, and watching them vs. Army and brief stat checks for other games, they look good and hit like a hammer. I don't think we're giving their D enough credit, especially since that's the only way they even stay in the game.
IMO this one ends up being a snoozer and we're back to Stage 9: Sky Fall on these boards next week because we didn't score 50+ on a top national D.
We win something like 24-6. Sloooooow game.
So you're going to save screenshots of venting fans so you can be the hero and put them on blast in "Janurary"? Cool. Do it, tough guy. And if we don't repeat as champions, I hope you do those same folks a solid and let said screenshots "re-emerge".
This post isn't good. Have a nice day.
+1, but it's them and Alabama though. I guess I didn't pay much attention to their schedule until yesterday, and was shocked at what I saw.
And, really, how lucky of a stretch is that? You don't play any of the B1G East's traditional powers? I don't see how this team doesn't get to 10 wins.
Watching Corey Clement, especially Saturday. If he cuts loose against Bama and looking at Wisconsin's schedule (no OSU, MSU, TTUN or PSU), factored with Chryst's affair with the run, and that dude might end up going 150+ every game. Who will contain him?
Can't wait to read this same "analysis" next year once this juggernaut of a roster all heads towards Sundays!
Full transparency: our wedding was north of $20K, we were 25, and it was only 4 years ago. In reflection, we should have went somewhere, despite the fact that it was my wife's "dream wedding". My advice: rent out a park, get two food trucks, hook up Spotify to some speakers, and cut loose, man.
I keep saying it here, but there's going to be another one of these "Why is Hackenberg [Insert Whatever Here]" threads going forward, but especially come February once real offseason mock drafts come out. The truth is, we're college footballs fans first (at least most of us are if we're Buckeye diehards), and while we see our platoon of QB's as "better" (and, frankly, they are better college QB's), Hackenberg simply fits your stereotypical (such a scapegoat of a word, but it's true) NFL QB mold. Effortless throws, albeit concerning decisions; successful and educated kid, and still very young (a true Junior makes him, what, 20-years-old?). Connor Cook is crafted from the same mold, making this conference a real QB jackpot come the next Draft.
If he even gets to the NFL
Oh, he's getting to the NFL. And he's going to get a guaranteed deal too. And, if you're a fan of *any* one of the Ohio NFL teams like I am, he very well might be your next QB.
And to think he could have been coaching right here in Columbus. /shivers
I hope to the gods not all of your guys' heavy B1G team losses happen. Wouldn't be an ideal start.
Does OSU still have any interest in Guarantano?
Flood was probably going to be canned at the end of the year anyways with a losing schedule. This might expedite that.
The way the B1G East is shaping up in the future, I'm OK with this... even more so because of the 9 game conference schedule. It's not like we're alone in the cupcake shop here.
It should help with their recruiting, at the very least. They have a pretty lowly class right now for 2016, and Franklin has been a pretty big thorn in their side for the past few seasons.
Look, this sucks, and PSU fans will remind us again that they won a head-to-head, but let's be honest: in terms of "OMG STARZ!", OSU is doing just fine—and better than PSU.
Pryts is good. Underrated even. But we'll be OK.
I suspect Ash won't be here to coach said future, unfortunately.
Hmm. Unless something changed since Friday, it seems the family (who apparently are calling the shots here) are down to WVU and PSU. One of those will be where he chooses from.
I root for the conference in OOC games always. As for "favorites" though, I'm a pretty big Jerry Kill fan, and I really liked Bill O'Brien as well.
I love it personally. Who wouldn't? Naturally, being—what?—19 months away from signing the 2017 class and we already have 8 committed, there's going to be an eventual lull in commits, and I'm sure people will freak out over it.
