I'd rather see the quarterfinal games 2 weeks after the regular season--that is, 2 weeks after the conference championship games.
Rutgers needs to hire an new Athletic Director before they hire a football coach. Schiano may be a great candidate, but you can't put the cart before the horse and have harmony in major college athletics.
I wouldn't be surprised to see this end very similarly to the Nebraska coaching search and subsequent buyer's remorse.
I suspect Nebraska's talent level is down now that they no longer play Texas schools. Recruits from Texas are not as attracted to UNL since they won't get a chance to play in their home state.
New HC Mike Riley has never coached a season where he lost fewer than 4 games. They're hoping for miracles in Nebraska, but it seems unlikely.
Half of the top top six ain't bad
...and 6 of top 25 are B1G teams.
SEC has just 4 of top 25, and shows the early preseason polls grossly overrated the SEC.
I can't wait for them to send Brax out with his first postseason win!
Hadn't realized Miller had never participated in a postseason win: L in 2011 & 2013, no bowl in 2012, couldn't participate in 2014.
Buckeyes need to get him one.
Jason, I wish you had included the record since these dates:
The modern rules began with the 1912 season, when the shape of the football was standardized, teams were given 4 downs (vs 3) to make 10 yards for 1st down, Touchdowns went from 5 pts to 6, PATs from 2 to 1 point, field size from 110 yds to 100 yds (not including two 10-yard deep end zones), and kickoff came from 40 yd line (vs midfield).
The forward pass, as we now know it, did not come till 1918.
Helmets weren’t mandatory until 1939.
Platooning was first allowed in 1941 (then banned in 1953 and brought back in 1965).
Face Masks weren’t legalized until 1951, when Woody Hayes started coaching at Ohio State.
Much as I'd like OSU to get in, it's not right to leave out other conference champs to let any conference have 2 teams in the CFP.
That's why Notre Dame, who played an abbreviated ACC schedule, and whom has lost to Clemson, should NOT gain a CFP invite along with the actual ACC champ (Clemson or N Carolina).
...and they're not done yet.
Gotta get that bowl win.
Not to mention a Natty. It's good to be a Buckeye.
I agree. At least the site isn't crashing.
Capital SHRUG !
Looking good, Bucks. No let down now !
OSU in 2nd half: 2 possessions, 2 TD's. (After great stop by OSU D).
Keep it up Buckeyes!
Yeah !! A sack, TUN fumble and 3rd down stop !
Go Buckeyes !
TUN with 18:32 to 11:28 time of possession advantage. OSU’s offense is doing its part, but the D missing tackles and spotty Pass D is letting team down. Need to get off the field by stopping ‘em on 3rd down; more QB hits and hurries will help, as will much better tackling.
Buckeyes missing tackles. Need to fix that!
C'mon Silver Bullets!
Bucks ground game going good: 160 yds already. Go Bucks, keep it going !
Thanks, Hove, for the thread.
Too many QB-runs
C'mon Bucks. Give us a long, slow, 75 yard drive.
I'm a bit surprised Zeke got caught from behind. Hope it's nothing.
OK Buckeyes, keep it going !
Blame Warinner if you like, but it's the last season to do so. He'll be head coach of another school next year. There are too many openings at Big 5 schools for him to not get one.
In hoops, the Buckeye players were clueless or had no huevos tonight.
Will the Buckeye football coaches have huevos and/or look clueless tomorrow?
