Assuming OSU wins one of their next two games, I don't believe there is a weekend off between the game and the B1G championship game.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

I would much rather see those 4 (teams playing at their peak) than anything that includes a floundering one or no-loss FSU team that just happened to accomplish that by "just beating" everyone who was decent when they played them (ahem, ND, ahem).

Obviously the body of work has to account for a lot, but I'd rather see the 4 best teams leading into December regardless of who it is. FSU just doesn't meet that requirement for me...

I watched the airing of the Walsh exhibition game... It was pretty tough to watch. I don't think I'll be paying to watch this first one, especially if they'll air it later on BTN.

Comment 12 Nov 2014

I think his ranking for OSU is a tad high, but he clearly sees what we've all been seeing - this team is playing as well as anyone else RIGHT NOW, and should definitely be in consideration assuming they win out.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Agreed - however if Miss St loses to Alabama, I don't think they drop lower than 5 since it's a "good loss". I think we need to pull for Miss St to win @ Alabama - the rest should be fine regardless.

I can see FSU losing between now and Decemeber 7th as well...

Comment 11 Nov 2014

I lose track of who it was, but someone on TV yesterday (either BTN or ESPN) said they think Minnesota has a pretty strong chance of losing out... Tough way to go for a relatively strong season so far...

I honestly think this is probably the most likely option moving forward, assuming JT's continued success. With Braxton's TWO shoulder injuries in the last year, I don't know that his arm will be ready for 25-35 passes a game, but he clearly has the ability to unleash some monster passes (I'm thinking the dart he threw at the end of the 1st half against Wisconsin (I think) last year).

With two dynamic RBs able to start, every opposing defense will have to put so much focus on the box, and probably still won't be able to stop it with an OL for OSU that will only be more experienced next year. Once a defense has committed to stopping the run, you have two legit B1G QB of the year players ready/able to throw the ball.

I've always said that assuming Braxton is healthy and ready to play, it's his team unless JT does what he couldn't in winning a B1G championship and/or a bowl game. I think at least one of those is well within his sights right now.

Let him throw it when Indiana is in town and OSU is up by 4 TDs...

Whose Illinois helmet is flying through the air in the main picture?

Comment 30 Oct 2014

Agreed - I think OSU has the worst loss of the one-loss teams. If your best wins are against teams that are scraping the bottom of the .500 barrel, you're gonna need something else to crack the top-15. Thankfully, those opportunities are available in playing @MSU and a B1G championship. That should easily make a case for a ranking of 7 or 8. Just need some other losses to help out...

Comment 29 Oct 2014

Obviously MSU has the best chance - but if anyone does (really it's down to MSU, OSU, and Nebraska), they'll need to run the table and get lots of losses from the teams ahead of them. Each of those SEC teams should lose at least once more, but that may still not be enough.
