Now the commentators ask these guys who should win it - what kind of question is that to ask a couple young kids?

Halftime show has some of the Heisman guys on; thank the Lord that Peppers didn't "bust a rhyme" that the broadcasters asked him to.  I'll give him a +1 for denying their request.

Let's get it moving NAVY!!!  Damn this QB sucks.  Wow.

Anyone else see that CNO elevator commercial? Not sure if it is only on AFN but that was hilarious!!!

NOTHING says you had better bring your A-GAME (Prince) than some competition nipping at your heals.  End of the day many of these kids want to get to the next level and get paid on Sundays; he'll either bring his game up or stand to potentially lose his starting position after a few series.  Up to Prince's first quarter of play if you ask me.

Happy to see all the positive responses to his hire.  He's been great for Ohio State, saw us through a dark period of time when Tattoo-gate occurred (which I still do not agree with the NCAA about), and has been there through some great seasons.  Many folks on here were advocating on a routine basis to "fire Fickell" and, in my humble opinion, he never deserved such criticism.  Devoted, loyal, and talented coach that I'm happy that we had the chance to have him on our staff. 

GOOD LUCK Sir!!!!

I'd love to focus on the fact that:

3. Ohio State

5. Penn State

6. Michigan

= How about that BIG TEN finishing with THREE of the top 6 teams!!!! 

Comment 04 Dec 2016

Washington will match-up well with Alabama and can actually throw the hell out of the ball.  If they can run for 50 to 75 yards to keep Alabama honest; they've got a good chance. 

Bring on Clemson!!!

Comment 04 Dec 2016

Thanks.  I rely on Armed Forces Network and they JUST updated today's schedule.

They are replaying the Clemson VT game right now and the schedule just changed to show a 4-hour long "decision" show: College Football Playoffs Selection Show 1800 to 2200 (12 EST to 4 PM).  I sure hope that it's not 4 hours long.

Comment 04 Dec 2016

I agree with that; I've never suggested or agreed that Alabama is #1 at any juncture this season.  A product of rankings being released too early in the season that gets built upon other hyped rankings (read as SEC) and you end up with a team like Alabama that, despite the final score, was exposed (yet again) by Florida just yesterday.

Comment 04 Dec 2016

1. Alabama

2. Clemson

3. Washington

4. Ohio State

* The extra game plus championship plays in to this. 

I love our chances against all three and Alabama in particular because... well... their offense is 1-dimensional.  We stack the D-line and challenge their QB to perform (which he can't this year).  They may get a few decent passing gains but not enough to hurt us in the long run.    

Comment 03 Dec 2016

We got this (thinking future here).  Honestly, any BIG TEN team plays them in the playoff and they (Alabama) are done.  Alabama's QB sucks (all season) and their schedule this year is weak; just spit-balling but they are one dimensional on Offense.

Oh, there's the block in the back... just wrong team.

That is really nice.  Congrats on the addition to your collection. 

When it comes to Autographs; please be careful to make sure you are getting authentic items (even if they come with a certificate of fake-enticity).

If UM gets back in to the playoff they are going to be playing some pissed off and vengeful ball. 

All of us should be honest in our own assessment of our beloved Buckeyes - if our offense doesn't show up (like last week) we are doomed.

Comment 01 Dec 2016

NOT if our offense actually shows up the second time.  It was off on an unexplained absence last Saturday and it had nothing to do with UM's defense (e.g. dropped balls that hit receivers in the hand, JT throwing the ball out of rhythm, etc.).
