Only Oklahoma State of the B12 can supplant ND in the rankings, IMO. And only because they could be undefeated. If ND wins out and ok State loses a game, ND is in the final 4. With that being said, my final 4 prediction is: 

1) OSU vs 4) ND 

2) Bama vs 3) Clemson 

Bama struggles with mobile qbs... Rematch of the Orange Bowl

I tempered my expectations for this season alot of my buddies said "what are you worried about? No one can stop this team from being 13-0 and reaching the playoff again." 

So far, they've been right, but it's still been much tougher than anyone expected. Ohio State hasn't "looked the best" yet but the last 2 weeks, plus conference championship week, our best will be needed. 

The Big Ten is on the rise and this team will have its work cut out for them to stay at the top.

The committee didn't like them much when they were undefeated. After losing to a previously 3-6 team, they'll fall pretty far in the playoff rankings. Probably right around 15. 

Based on the ending of their Michigan game, the committee won't hesitate to rank Michigan ahead of them, IMO.

I'm just tired of the same old narrative. 

Bama holds #7 to 31 yards and their defense is the greatest thing in football. Well bama had a streak of no 100 yarder rushers for "X" number of games last year before a team from the 'pitiful' Big Ten more than doubled that in a single game. 

I don't think it really matters whether there are 4, 6, or 8. There are 2 or 3 teams every year that could win the championship based on talent and circumstances and 1 of those teams will win it every year with 4 teams or 6 or 8. Just MO.

Fair enough thinking. After all, Braxton was listed as the backup last night. With Barrett back now, if it's gets to the 3rd string qb (meaning collier or burrow, and not including Braxton) that's a serious problem with both JT and Cardale having gone down for 1 reason or another.

Fwiw, Joe Burrow was getting 2nd team qb reps in pregame warmups last night, per Eric and Tim of this great site. 

Comment 06 Nov 2015

Think about this though: if bama beats LSU, they will be 2 seed, maybe even 1, even if Clemson wins. A team, with a loss, and which does NOT control its own destiny in its own conference division as 1 of the 2 best teams in the country right now. 

If that sounds absurd, it's because it is and only the sec west gets that benefit.

Posting this after the game of course. I admit I didn't watch all of it, flipping back and forth between that and battle of Ohio but kid throws for 400+ and they only scored 31. 

Wouldn't have expected those 2 events to be linked together. 

Comment 03 Nov 2015

I really like the Nkemdiche pick from above. He would absolutely solidify an already very good defensive line. But since it's been mentioned, I'll take another guy. 

I don't necessarily think he would have to start given his position, but he's a freakish athlete with great size and speed: Josh Doctson of TCU. 

Hes the tall, explosive WR Ohio State is desperate for right now and would give the bucks an added dimension down the field much like Devin last year (not that the guys we have are playing poorly, they're just not 6'4, 200)

Well, Kareem apparently knows what he has in Ohio State currently. He wants to check out his list of schools, see what they have to offer, and then finish with the choice he thinks is currently the right one to see if, at the end of it all, he has any second thoughts. 

Its actually a really smart, mature decision making process and for a kid in his position, it would be hard to pass that up. 

Edit: Pass up the opportunity to see as many top schools as possible and undoubtedly, good football games.

My girlfriend went to school with a girl from the northeast who found out she was an Ohio State and said "how can you be a fan of them, you don't even go to school there?" 

She doesn't go to a school with any athletic teams. Haha. The NE must be weird like that. 

Comment 30 Oct 2015

To be fair, Devin really had one pattern to excel deep. 

Philly played more the role of Michael Thomas now and he had to know and understand how to find the holes in the defense and beat press man coverage with something other than running by them, which is why I think he was able to be more successful early.

Depending on what they think of Oswiler, they need a quarterback for next year, not a project for in a couple years. Teams with qbs in their early to mid 30s are the most likely IMO to give him time to learn, gain maturity, and improve his overall play and mechanics. 

Pitt, NYG, SD, Ari, Dal....much like most everyone else has mentioned are the most likely landing spots... Probably between mid 2nd and mid 3rd rounds.
