Backing it up is priceless.
Those 3 games need to be two demolitions and a convincing victory. I think that's the only way to get them into the conversation.
I'm assuming Jacoby Boren doesnt have any lingering effects from the late problem he had that made the coaches pull him? Havent heard anything all week about him.
No thanks. I'm all for new and modern things, but eventually it's too far. This is too far.
I dont see the big commotion about why Franklin will continue to try running the ball. Penn St's offense isnt very good, meaning they cant get into a shootout with OSU. If they can run it SOMEWHAT successfully to set up PA, they could limit the score allowing themselves to hang around longer.
I dont personally see that happening as i see another blowout win for OSU, but I see why he would want to try running the ball consistently.
He throws pickles?! What kind?! I might need to run on the field to catch a few of those.
I'll take a John Simon type 3 star any day of the week over a prima donna 5 star.
I'm sure urban and Co have it all under wraps but man this class is filling quickly if no one decommits. A lot of big time players out there to sign still.
The FPI doesnt make sense to me though. It's supposed to be a predictor of future success. If that's the case, how are all the SEC west teams at the top? Because eventually they'll have to beat up on each other. I don't get it, but anything that puts OSU close to the top 4 is fine by me.
Good. Hopefully it stays that way.
Even if the AP voters havent taken notice, others around the country have and the only way to make yourself seen, is to FORCE yourself to be seen. That's where this team is at right now. They have to force themselves onto the national scene.
Personally, I think they need blowout wins against everyone left on their schedule except MSU and a dominating multiple touchdown win against them would put OSU squarely back into the picture, whether everyone else likes it or not. A program like Ohio St with the national following they have would be tough to leave out of the playoff, especially as much money as theyre sure to bring it. And I really believe money will still be a factor, even if not as big a one any more.
The committee will release their standings every tuesday evening starting next week, leading up to the announcement of the 4 playoff spots on the 7th of December i believe? Manning will not be replaced and in the event of a tie, deliberation will rage until a decision is made.
Personally, the even number of members sounds like a bad idea, but it is probably too late by now to pick someone else and you cannot ask someone to step down either.
What he's saying is: say UGA ends the season with 3 losses but still makes the conference championship and plays 1-loss bama. Should UGA lie down and lose so the SEC is represented in the playoff or try to win for their own sake?
That's a pretty easy answer I think. You don't play to lose.
Who cares what his NFL talent level is right now? He's a college freshman, redshirt or otherwise. I love just as much as anyone seeing OSU players in the League, but right now JT's job isn't to improve his draft stock. It's to score points for Ohio State.
I do respect your opinion on the OP viewpoints, but it doesn't matter what his draft stock is, in reference to the comment I'm replying to.
His 4th time being named freshman of the week. Only 2 more to go to tie the record! With Indiana and Illinois still left on the schedule, have to think he'll at least tie it.
One game at a time is true, but I expect this game to be closer to last year's score than a competitive game.
No clue how this got downvotes. This is 1 of the most creative, funny things I've seen on this site.
I'm completely okay with whatever the final stat line reads. The first team defense only really gave up the 1 drive for a touchdown. Otherwise, they looked pretty good.
I do think they'll need to shore up the rush defense a little better before msu because you can't let that team be as effective at play action, but they're continuing to improve. Two more weeks of tuneup!
The ND player should have sold the route better no doubt. But that play happens every game and is called 2 out of 10 times, if that.
Now we get hear how, even though ND lost, the loss gets an asterisk because they very easily could have won. This was not a good way for this game to go for OSU, unfortunately.
This team is passing the eye test and nationally, people are starting to notice.
That all starts with JT and his quickly rising Heisman stock.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but since the Rose Bowl is part of the playoff this year, we won't play in the Rose unless we make the playoff I believe. Could still play a similar team in a different bowl.
Me either. Can't find a single reason to dislike them...
Every season has big time upsets but with there not being a truly dominant team so far this year, it'll be exciting to see the next weeks unfold!
But first things first: RUTGERS!
I didn't listen to this but it seems like what they're saying is, the winner of November 8th has a great chance to make the playoff.
Right now msu def has a better case because of where their loss happened but it's nice to hear someone associated with espin finally giving the conference some respect.
Thought the same thing about their replies. On Jt's yards and the prediction, they were almost identical.
