Or Houston beats little nicky in the first round and OSU meets Houston in the final.
OSU was an elite team last year and did not curb stomp MSU. Sometimes credit needs to be given. MSU has been a top 5-6 program for a few years now. It isn't pretty but their style is effective. Dantonio is one of the best coaches in college football and this year's game in East Lansing is going to be very tough.
Did you forget who is coaching the Buckeyes?
Bingo, which actually makes sense. This is the first true poll of the new season and given the results from this weekend mostly makes sense (except for Tennessee being ranked after tying App St. in regulation).
Those rankings are meaningless right now.
The sec went 6-6 (OOC) with two of those wins coming in OT (one against Appy State) and another win being an arkansas nailbiter over Louisiana Tech while florida looked like hot garbage against vaunted UMass. This weekend should at least spare college football fans a season full of articles on why the sec should have 2 or 3 teams in the playoff. For that I am grateful.
Well that Francois went from looking clueless to looking like an all American in one half. He looks like an impressive player.
Love when the sec loses.
I think you may be on to something.
But no qb experience.
Why was FSU ranked so high?
On top of that I couldn't find a single sec team that hasn't lost at least once to a MAC or lower level squad during the same time period. (Heck this week alone Kentucky, Miss St lost to Southern Miss and South Alabama while the Berts barely escaped Louisians East Bum and Tennessee tied Appy St. in regulation. I am sure no conference is immune to these type of losses so really this article was pretty pointless.
NBC commentators seemed to do their homework on less than half of the national teams.
Beating little nicky in the CFP gives Urban the advantage thus far. Playoff games must be given more weight.
Head to head beats transitive property. Urban beat little nicky in the biggest game they've played thus far.
So there may have been more.
Texas would go to the Pac, sec not an option for Austin.
Notre Dame has joined the B1G,...in hockey.
Notre Dame will only join a conference that gives them east coast exposure ( west coast is taken care of with USC and Stanford games). Perhaps that was part of the strategic benefit of adding Rutgers and UMD? Though I can't see ND being that excited about playing those programs. I think ND stays independent until the P5 turns into the P4 and the path to the CFP narrows to the winners of those 4 conferences.
Guys I haven't seen mentioned who I hated seeing come to the plate against my Indians back in the day: Alan Trammel, Mickey Rivers, Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Willie Randolph.
I would destroy all at Dig Dug. (Side note: it is never a good idea to venture into the area of equestrian sport when you know nothing about it. Pound for pound jockeys are the strongest, fittest and probably bravest athletes in the world. Hunt riding can be extremely dangerous and requires strength, stamina, skill and endurance.)
Hoping Arsenal tear it up from here, dropping 2 points at the death at Anfield started a slide into poor form that has hopefully been reversed with this result. That Kante would have looked very good in an Arsenal shirt. Still 36 points to play for COYGs!
The OSU team that lost to MSU would have lost to bammer. The OSU team that beat Michigan and Notre Dame would have beaten bammer. Which team do you think Meyer would have brought to the playoffs?
That schedule should preclude any sec team from the playoff. It is just shameful.
Ohio State with Urban Meyer should never have a preseason ranking outside of the top 8.
College football season ended on January 1st at about 4:30PM. I'm burnt out on it at this point, won't watch.
B1G 1-1, should be 2-0.
