That's true. I got carried away.

Save hyphens for phrasal adjectives (e.g. long-term growth) and compound nouns that might otherwise be confusing (e.g. three-and-out). No need to put a hyphen between adjectives and nouns (e.g. tight ends) or between adverbs and adjectives (e.g. most improved).
Fair point, forgot about ECU.
B1G teams haven't impressed but they're ranked accordingly. That's the crucial difference.
This year will really tell us a lot about the committee's approach and whether they disregard preseason rankings. The resumes of Alabama and Texas A&M are not impressive. South Carolina beating Georgia is the only win against a currently ranked team in the entire SEC East. Think about that.
Further, we were told the playoff would lead to people making more difficult out-of-conference schedules, but I don't see any incentive to do that right now. MSU went to Oregon and admittedly melted down in the 4th quarter, but they've otherwise been impressive. Meanwhile, Alabama hasn't beaten a ranked team since the middle of last season and coasts on hype and past glory to the highest ranking of any one-loss team.
Georgia, Texas A&M and Alabama have 1 combined win against ranked teams. That's Georgia's week 1 win v. #25 Clemson, which they followed up with a loss to a South Carolina team that's mediocre at best. Yet all three are in the top 14.
That's a terrible
I hate unnecessary and incorrect hyphens.

I understand the SEC has earned the benefit of the doubt. But it is getting pretty absurd when any in-conference loss for any SEC team means that their opponent must be better than expected rather than accepting that the loser may not have been as good as advertised.
Whoa there, D-Day. I'm not trying to insult anyone and I don't see how anything I said was snobbish or arrogant.
Of course there are lots of people in Cincinnati who support Ohio State, but there is also a sizable contingent that doesn't I hear the folks on WLW bashing the Buckeyes all the time, still holding it against Thad that he left Xavier, etc. The natural comparison is to Cleveland, and having lived near both cities, I don't think there's any doubt that Cleveland is much more unified in support for OSU than Cincy.
Maybe it's something engrained in a culture of hometown pride that Coach Coombs alluded to yesterday that takes precedence over statewide pride, maybe it's some sort of defensiveness from the perception of a lack of OSU support that you allude to, or maybe it's just proximity to other colleges with viable athletic departments. In any case, OSU needs Cincinnati, so here's to hoping UFM and his staff can continue to expand their relationships with and pipelines to the Queen City!
You lost me a bit with the reverse secession and bizarro tax pooling. But I agree it does seem like lots of folks in Cincinnati don't identify strongly with Ohio, all the way down to their tourism campaign "Cincinnati, USA." That has to play a role in why we have lost out on a lot of prospects down there over the years, particularly to ND, but we have been picking up steam and hopefully we'll be cleaning up around Cincy in the near future.
In fairness, I like the helmets.
Please don't drink until you're this inebriated
But how am I supposed to get that inebriated without drinking?
I think 66-0 qualifies as a curb stomping.
Languages aren't static. It's the langauge that's being bastardized. The dictionaries are just keeping track of it.

He threw a perfect deep ball to Corey Smith against VT.
Whatever your goal, upvote for the Mad Anthony Wayne reference.
You wouldn't take Bud Foster?
JT Barrett's arm strength is not an issue. He throws a nice deep ball. The deep ball Corey Smith dropped was a beauty. JTB can make every throw he needs to in college.
Ha, commas are critical.
Bell's Expedition Stout. It's quite expensive but worth it once in a while for special occasions.
My only question is what the hell is Cameron Johnston holding?
Pretty sure they have enough embarrassment on their plate right now.
