The blowout could hurt national perception if it is part of a trend, like blowout lose to UF, then lose next year to LSU, then get blown out by USC.  The LSU loss wasn't bad really, young overachieving team makes championship, but going along with the other 2 losses it created a bad national perception.  Even so, OSU finished top 5 the next two years but was not getting any benefit of the doubt until 2 years ago winning the Natty.

Since OSU wore the 1916 unis this year, can they break the 1916 record next year on someone and score 129 points?  That might help me recover from this weekend.

On basketball, guys work out more like pretty much every other  sport (you can notice the difference when you watch ESPN classic) but in hoops the fundamentals are worse since top players don't stick around enough in college.  

In football I can remember Sam Huff saying he didn't work out until he got to the NFL.  If you go back to back to the 60's, maybe 70's, guys worked in the off season at normal jobs and didn't have the time to work out as much.  I have the last 4 OSU NC bowl wins on BD and DVD, and watching the 1969 Rose Bowl and the 2003 Fiesta Bowl its amazing how much stronger the players looked.  I would think some of the top HS programs now have better weight rooms than NFL teams in the 70's.

I won't be in Phoenix for the game, but I go there almost every year for a conf at the convention center.  

Here are my eight  favorite places in Phoenix (food, beer, music), last 7 all walkable from Convention Center downtown, last 6 are in the art district which is a cool area.

Anyone know why he only got a year of probation?  I was wondering if most people in OK would have gotten jail time for that (if its a first offense), or if it looks like he only got off lightly because of football.  Besides her civil suit against him, does anyone know if she has any Title 9 grounds against OU for letting him play?  Also, anyone think the NFL may suspend him when he comes out?

I think I'll go with 120" screen, oyster poboy and many tall ones.  Would love to see this live, but got first kid starting college next year.  Wife gave me enough crap for payin 60 to go see the MD game curbstopping

Comment 08 Dec 2016

Forgive my ignorance on the transfer rules.  So if the kid sticks around for the playoffs, they couldn't transfer until summer or fall to their new school since the spring semesters start at most schools before the playoff final?  With only one QB, it will be interesting to see if/how cautious they get running him.  Without his running threat, I don't see him being very effective.

At least Bama's defense won't be a huge surprise if Bucks play them, TTUN's defense is #2 to Bama's #1. Bama plays their best defense next game in FL at #7 at 11 games so OSU's D would be the best they have played statistically at #4.

Comment 15 Nov 2016

Still a lot of football.  But even if OSU wins out, and Wisc or PSU beats the other for the Big 10 championship, I could still see the whole conference getting screwed, if WV wins the Big 12, Clemson wins the ACC, and Washington wins Pac all with only one loss.  Best I'll forget that and think happy thoughts (3 loss VA Tech wins ACC, 3 loss USC wins Pac, 2 loss OK wins Big 12, PSU loses to MSU so OSU wins Big 10, and 3 or 4 loss UF upsets BAMA). Chaos baby.  OSU beats W MI and BAMA beats OK in semis, OSU over BAMA in final.
