Linga - I was in Seattle a couple of weeks back staying at the Courtyard in Pioneer Square. They had a local IPA I really enjoy called Julia I believe?

Let It Go
How hard is it to understand that Alabama played an extra game (conf championship) and won going into the playoffs. Do you really think tOSU deserved to be there over Alabama or any of the other conference championship teams with one loss?
"Zero focus", um OK.......
Let it go. Would of, should of, could of. Every team, every year has a play or game where there is luck involved and they get by, Buckeyes included. The bottom line is we should have beaten MSU, we did not and did not earn the right to play in our conference championship.
The difference is Oklahoma, Alabama, and MSU all played an extra game (conference championships) and won. tOSU does not have a case over the final 4 teams.
Now is Stanford with 2 loses better then Ohio State? Here we have an argument.
my dog is named Griffin for obvious reasons
And his dad was my drivers ed teacher at Lakewood. Big man of a man.
That 3 year deal is not gauranteed.
While you are correct on the avg for a 3rd rounder, check the gauranteed portion. You get cut, you get next to nothing.
No offense but "more than set for life" is not at all accurate. After taxes, a million is about $650k in his tax bracket and he has not even paid his agent yet. Let's say that leaves him $550k. At $55k/year it's gone by the time he is 32. Sorry but that's chump change using your example.
totally agree but because every conference trains/focuses differently, calls are going to be inconsistent. Not right, just the way it is.
"Total lack of consistency with the officiating this year."
Not surprising as each of the conferences hires/trains their own officials.
Bosa led with the crown of his helmet, that's targeting under the current rule definition. Sad he had to end his career that way but time to move on.
Good Luck in the draft Joey. You will be missed by Buckeye Nation. Thanks for a great three years.
Killernut - Difference is both Alabama and Oklahoma won their conferences, power conferences. We did not even play in the championship game.
I am no SEC fan but are you actually saying Alabama was lucky enough to play in a conference that allowed them to lose a game? Not sure I understand your logic there.
Do you homework. Other football divisions can do an expanded playoff because they don't play as many regular season games. Mt. Union, for example, plays 10 regular season games and the playoffs start in mid November and end in December.
The big boys are not going to play less then 12 regular season games, way too much money to lose.
A non-power conference
The only argument I have against a 6-8 team playoff is the final teams will end up playing 16 games. That is just ridiculous and you are not going to see them drop a game in the regular season to compensate for it.
I hate those other coaches for other reasons. I respect MD. Comparing him to the others is, well, silly as the only parallel is they were all ex tOSU coaches. Bo went to our biggest rival. Holtz was at ND and also a scumbag (look at every program in the 1-2 years after he left, always a trail of shadiness). And Pete Carroll, really? Can you honestly compare how Dantonio has build MSU with these other guys. Night and day in my opinion especially with the challenges MSU has had in the past recruiting (changing now). He does about as good a job at coaching up two and three stars as anyone.
I think it's just about getting some respect back and tamping down the narrative that the B1G is weak. Of course B1G performance in bowl games contributed to that impression over the last 10-15 years.
Are you saying MD hates tOSU? If so, I too would like to see evidence of that.
Maybe I should limit it to the two counties.
My issues with the Wisconsin justice system was the refusal by the State Supreme Court to not hear their appeals. On the flip side, the film makers did not say why the cases were not heard, could have been valid reasons. Need to do more research because you can't accept everything in a one sided documentary as gospel.
