Wow. That game should have ended on a Miami fumble recovery. Goddamn ACC refs saving their conference favorites. It's the fucking Atlantic Cheaters Conference, that's what it is.

310 :(

But only because the Terps are going to have to play from behind by multiple TDs and we'll be in prevent D by the half! :D

To be honest, there are enough questions on both sides of the ball for OSU and VT that in a neutral site game, I'd be tough-pressed to guess you a victor. 

But a prime-time night game in the 'Shoe with over a hundred thousand of the nation's most fiery fans generating a roar of Biblical proportions every time the line judge signals third down? I can think of few places more unpleasant than Michael Brewer's shoes in that situation.

27-17, the good guys. Go Bucks.

Ohio State "survives" and "scrapes by" Navy 34-17. Meanwhile, FSU "cruises" to a 37-31 win over Oklahoma St and LSU "pulls out a gutsy comeback" 28-24 over Wisconsin. I'm done with the media and its B1G/OSU bias. Thanks to the playoff, we need to just win, baby!

This will depend entirely on our defense. If Ash is able to turn the pass D around and bring back the Bullets of yore, then I think we can grind our way to a berth on a run-first ball-control offense, assuming we can beat MSU. Remember, we went 12-0 with a second-year Braxton Miller in his first year of Urban Meyer's offense. If the defense can't deliver on their promise, we'll probably be 2nd, maybe 3rd in the conference...

That last gif perfectly highlights the beauty of Sail against zone defenses. The LBs had dropped back into a middle zone, covering thin air, neither contributing to the pass rush nor covering receivers, while the scUM DBs were getting overwhelmed by a flood of Buckeye WRs to the play side. Simple yet strategically elegant way to gain chunk yardage in an obvious passing situation.

In all honesty, it'll take an unbeaten season and a bit of good luck. Regardless of losses, you know an ess-ee-seeee team is going to get a bid. That leaves three spots between 4 major conferences: the B1G, Pac-12, BigXII, and ACC. Usually the ACC gets laughed out as the smallest of the majors, but FSU will be (over)ranked highly enough going this year that barring multiple losses, they'll find a way to sneak in. Oregon is also a perennially overestimated media darling which will make a good push to be in the conversation (not to mention, their Kryptonite, Stanford suffered quite a bit of attrition in this years' NFL draft). Finally, the Big XII also often gets the nod as the supposed "second best" conference, and following their Sugar Bowl win, Oklahoma will also be a highly-esteemed contender. The bottom line is that tOSU has no choice but to go undefeated and hope their contemporaries do not, because the unjustified ESPiN motif will be working against us all year.

He definitely would have been invited to NYC at least if he'd played the first 3 games (which would have been under the assumption that he never had been in the altercation at the bar that led to the suspension in the first place).

Now, if we fed him the rock in the 4th quarter and we overcame MSU to land ourselves in the title game, I think he could have won. The narrative would have been flawless: A senior who overcame significant early-career adversity to carry the team on his back (see Northwestern, Iowa, scUM, MSU) to a national title bid. The fact that OSU is tailback-U certainly doesn't hurt his image either.

Given Johnny Manziel's flame out and the botched rape case against Jameis Winston, I find it hard to believe El Guapo wouldn't have been the "safe" pick for the Heisman Committee. How cruel history is :)

It's been forever since I commented here, but The Situational always brings me back. Especially the Bourbon.
