CC - Although I agree with the majority of your post, your last paragraph is incorrect. Coach Meyer has actually done a few things that Coach Saban has not. He has a higher winning percentage for one. He has won NCs in two different conferences. He hasultiple 20+ game win streaks, and he has succeeded at every school he has coached, with undefeated seasons at 2 different schools. Saban's record at Toldeo and MSU doesn't compare with Meyer's at BGSU and Utah.

Really at Penn State is a test?

I'll be that guy.  In reality, the answer has been, Yes.  Since 2001, OSU and PSU have met 7 times in Happy Valley.  OSU is 5-2 in those games, but four of the seven games were decided by a TD or less including 2014.  Relative to the rest of the B1G East teams the Buckeyes play, PSU is a test.

Outstanding piece, fellas.  Another gem for the 11W crown. TBDFSITL.

I disagree.  Most voters in the AP poll are sportswriters.  They may look casually but skeptically at ESPN as a direct competitor.  Why give credence to TWWL if you're the CFB writer at the Cleveland Plain Dealer?  The Coaches poll is a joke: many coaches admit they don't have the time to watch games. If they even vote (many leave it to a staff assistant), most probably look at box scores and temper it with, "Who just beat us, or did we just beat?"  Voting up your own schedule makes you look better.

The CFP is a different animal altogether. Although we only have two seasons worth of data, they've proven they're willing to depart from the hive mentality of the AP.  If they didn't, the Buckeyes would never have gotten a shot in 2014-15.  I honestly don't believe the polls or ESPN's FPI count for a whole lot in that room.  Just my opinion.

I don't understand why anyone cares about ESPN's FPI now or during the regular season.  It has absolutely zero bearing on the CFP.

Bump. 

Check for duplicates. Both staff and the community are very much on point when it comes to breaking news. Dupes happen, and I'm guilty of a few myself (self-moderated). If information is hours or days old, it's likely already posted. When checking, please review the front page, the forums, and Buckshots.

And please search the Forums before posting.  A simple search of "OSU UT" provides this snazy post by DJ Byrnes.

Several of them (or the team they were on) have their own 30 for 30s: Bo Jackson, Maurice Clarett, Marcus Dupree, Matt Leinart, Todd Marinovich.

Bilateral hip surgery at that age is pretty rare.  That doesn't bode well for his future in sports at all.  I think I would've taken UM for all they were worth and gotten a degree that he could convert to cash.  Completely agree with your take on Coach Meyer's mentoring approach.

I doubt it would've given them a better scoring opportunity.  The defense would've been matched up.  As it was, they got a 3-on-1 after the steal.  It doesn't get much better than that on a final play.

I don't believe this was a failed drug test.  These four were actually arrested for possession by the Auburn city police.

A Class A misdemeanor in the state of Alabama can be sentenced to not more than one year in jail and up to a $6,000 fine. According to the Lee County Detention Center, all four players charged were each released on $500 bond and their court date set to July 21.
