That happened when there was a computer aspect to the ranking.  And not that I disagree as i thought Bama was the better team and they proved it by completely dominating the title game.  Here though, the humans will override any possibility of that happening.  At this point, I cannot see the playoffs being anything other than 3 P5 conferences winners + Notre Dame/Group of 5/another P5 conference winner for the 4 teams.

The best case for two teams from one conference is they expand the field to 6 or more.  Until then, it ain't happening.

While I agree CFB>NFL, i just want to point out the "every game matters" notion is completely false.  A lot of games matter, but certainly not every one.  If we lose to Wisconsin and win the rest, it doesn't matter.  Same if we lose to Oklahoma.  The most important factor for getting to the playoffs is winning your conference.  It is becoming much more similar to the NFL.  Order of importance are division games>non-division conference games>non-conference games.  We missed the playoffs last year because we lost 1 of the 2 games we couldn't lose.  Any other game would have been fine.

Last time I was that worried was the 2014 Mich St game since we hadn't really shown the ability to win that game after the prior year and VT loss.  And the slow start didn't help either.  Then we steamrolled and I was overjoyed.

The last time before that was USC.  Unfortunately, that one was confirmed.

I stand corrected.  I was thinking foot.  I also thought there were some foot micro-fracture type injuries that have plagued people but I'm not coming up with any examples.  So ignore what I just said.

I love the kid.  He also killed it last year in the first game (with his own Braxton-esque spin move for a TD).  But then injuries set in.  And foot injuries at that.  We've seen foot injuries totally derail promising careers (e.g., Oden).  I absolutely hope he tears it up and Chip Kelly maximizes his use.  But he is also on a bad offensive team, which didn't work well for Gurley last night either.

The key is what does it take to stop the run though.  Every team would love to stop the run and would if they could.  If you can do so with the front 4 getting penetration or swallowing up the blockers, then you'll feast.  However, if you need to commit 8 to stop the run, it's going to be a long day.

Are Lee and Thomas wearing the exact same jeans?  They need to have a better pregame chat.  Also, please excuse my ignorance, but who are the two on the right?  Grant? And some guy not really part of the group but just standing near them?

Exactly.  I think Meyer is totally wrong focusing on recruiting at the highest level.  It's not like on a whole, 4 and 5 star recruits lead to more team success and have a higher success rate of getting to the NFL.  Give me 2 and 3 stars all day long.

Yeah it's a bit absurd.  But like others have said, doesn't really mean much.  I'm pretty sure C. Ronaldo said something similar about Iceland during the Euros just a couple of months ago and not a single person really cared.

I'm not sure how much of that success is directly related to Quick Cals, but I'm going to guess very low to none.  We were also 24-2 with Withers as a coach but Meyer and others thought we could improve.  Just because we've had a good record doesn't mean we can't change.

The real key is to success is that since 2002 (my first game), OSU is 17-0 in games I have attended, including the 2002 NC.  Yet, nobody is giving me free tickets to the games to continue our winning ways.
