Great looking trophy - that's what a football player looks like! Congrats to Pat and Buckeye Nation!
& in the 5 loses, Bucks were ahead (4 times) or tied (1) at some point in the 4th Quarter. Amazing.
If we are focused on past committee precedence – a 2 loss team has never been selected for the CFP.
I don’t think the premise is as far-fetched as this board seems to make it out to be.
But I do believe a 1 loss Washington PAC 12 champ would still be selected ahead of all 1 loss non-conference champs (Louisville or OSU).
Ohio State is my side team. I get to cheer for them 11 out of 12 Saturdays.
- '87 Penn State grad.
But my daughter is a Buckeye senior - and she has been enjoying a historic run.
Sometimes in life ..you walk amongst giants and don't realize it until they are gone - thank you!!
Penn State and Pitt $17.5-18K / year. One of the reasons my keystone stater is an Ohio Stater...that and the fact she thinks Penn State is plopped down in a cow pasture.
Meant to post the same thing earlier....
If (When) they go to 8, almost certainly there will be a "no more than 2 teams from one conference" rule. If that had been the 2015 set-up, Bucks still may have been on outside (although committee may have given more thought to who was better between OSU and Iowa). Things just fell wrong this year.
Did enjoy the Fiesta Bowl.
Sorry for your loss.
My mom died at 38, my brother was 10. Open casket - he's 43 now and still talks about seeing her body and struggles going to funerals.
My experience - and just one data point. Good luck with this tough time.
My son to his balding father - "Dad - you still have a lot of hair"
Me (feeling not so old) - "Thanks"
Son " but it's in your nose"
Those older teams were before my time - but agree not top notch competition. (but did beat #6, #6 and #13 bowl teams). '94 team - beat some good in season teams - needed a better bowl match-up. Nebraska would have been a great game.
Going forward, I highly doubt we'll ever see a Power 5 undefeated not in the play-off - so at least it will get answered on the field.
Here's hoping Urban has at least 4 undefeated clubs when he hangs it up!
Joe Paterno - 1968, 1969, 1973, 1994.
let's hope Urban doesn't match that record.
2013 PSU Beat #14 Wisconsin at Wisconsin as a 20+ dog.
2012 Beat Wisconsin in OT. Wisconsin went on to win B1G and play in Rose Bowl.
Nothing on the line - sanction years.
NOTE: Above was all pre-Franklin era..but not that long ago.
The team is just happy for a break from Boy George singing "Karma Chameleon" on loop.
Rex Ryan and Bret Bielema have an affliction for sticking their foot in their own mouths...
in Rex's defense - it's not just his own feet he sticks in his mouth.
only change I would make is rename FBS to 1A and FCS to 1AA. Otherwise I like only 4 teams and 3 games.
In a good year....
Hate to be that guy - but Big East 8-7 in BCS bowl games w/ 5 wins as underdog. Favored 6 times and won 3. B1G 13-15. Could be said for every conference - laid some eggs. Agree 3-4 loss conference champs should be left out. I like 4 too - undefeated team that loses conference championship should stay home. Should be a play in game - that if you lose - you sit.
Thanks - just turned it on!
Thank you to you and your family for all the sacrifices made.
