I'm a displaced Buckeye fan living here in Dothan, Alabama, originally from Cleveland. Surrounded by the colglomerate called the SEC seemingly owned by Paul Finebaum.

Going to be pulling for all the Big Ten matchups. Not because of some blind loyalty to the conference like SEC fans, however stronger conference means being given the benefit of a doubt in case you have a slip up. If people do not respect your schedule because of their perceived lack of quality opponents throughout the year and you do happen to slip up, they will not be as forgiving.

I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments and frustrations that you think you portrayed his comments last night. However, as one of the staff members mentioned above, he is essentially the face of the franchise so to speak. With that honor bestowed upon him comes great responsibility. I do think that his comments were rash and made in the heat of the moment, letting all his frustrations out at that time. However, being in the position that he is, he shouldn't have had the discretion enough to use some sort of filter when talking to the media. His concerns, although valid and obviously the consensus, should not have come out like this. This was a very bad look on the university, the coaches, and his teammates. As mentioned before he just won a championship the previous year and was a highlight of that. To come out and say things such as this kind of seems ungrateful for the success he has had. Again, his thoughts were valid, however there is a time, a place, & a forum for everything. Hopefully, this is not permanently damage his relationship with Ohio State and hopefully it is not damage the relationship with future recruits and Ohio State. Sorry for the out of place words, used the mic on my cell phone instead of typing

That scenario could happen. However, the SEC would probably still get a team in if Alabama wins out. Even if they don't go to the championship game because of Ole Miss not losing anymore, Alabama's resume I believe will be good enough to get them in the top four with no more losses.

I was watch that game it was absolutely dumbfounded by the time outcall at the end by Petrino. SOMEBODY on the sideline HAS to have a clue about what's going on.

When I first saw the title saying CFL I was thinking College Football Live which meant football season was close. So disappointed..........

Since LSU beat my beloved Buckeyes in the n'ship the 07 season, their record has been 8-5, 10-3, 10-3, 12-1 (smashed by Bama in n'ship), 11-2, 9-4, 8-5.  Averaging over 3 losses a season in that time period, to me, doesn't spell "elite".  And Georgia's record is even worse; over the past 5 seasons: 10-3, 8-5, 11-2, 9-4 (loss to MSU in Outback Bowl), 6-7.  That's not even "good", really it's average.  I'm not knocking the SEC.  Anyone with any kind of reason about them would say the SEC is still the best conference.  However, it's not like the SEC is #1 conference and the other 4 conferences are 5a, b, c, and d.  The gap is closing between ALL the conferences.  I love the playoff system so much because now you have to play your way in instead of just automatically qualifying because of past accomplishments.  With the playoff, it's either put up or shut up.

Comment 09 Jul 2015

I'm not basing my thoughts on a SINGLE year's play.  Looking back at the past SEC nat'l champs you have Bama, Auburn, Florida, & LSU (I'm not leaving out any am I?)  Of course Bama is still an elite team -- nobody's questioning that.  You seem like a reasonable person (guy/girl?), you mean to tell me that you'd realistically/honestly say that LSU and Florida are still elite teams JUST because they won a c'ship within the last decade?  Auburn, for me, is on the fence; they won a c'ship in 2011 and got back to the big game 3 years later.  Besides Bama and Auburn, who out of the SEC has PROVEN that they should be endowed with "elite" status?

Comment 09 Jul 2015

C5, I upvoted you for having a well thought out and respectful opinion, however, I disagree with your sentiments.  You mention these SEC teams are elite because of the 10 year record of said teams.  How many players from these 4 nat'l champ teams are still playing for those teams?  In short, none.  You can't base current status off of PAST success.  In the here and now, as last year proved, there aren't a PILE of elite teams in the SEC anymore (if there ever really were), and over the last few years, MSU has proven they are more that just "good".  What makes them NOT elite.  The only way to really prove what a team's worth is to play OTHER teams, and we see what happened when the "elite" teams out of the SEC played teams outside of their conference when it mattered.

I can't agree with you more. Kevin Love was an excellent acquisition for the cavs. If he and Kyrie were healthy, I would have picked the Cavs in five. they were that good. obviously, the Kyrie injury was a bigger blow then love's injury however, it was still a major blow.
