Dude, really??  I don' t like to down vote people and I didn't down vote you, but you deserve what you got.

The possibility of VT beating Clemson could happen, and so does Colorado beating Washington.  I don't feel that both need to happen, just one.  How would the committee put either UW or PSU ahead of TTUN when TTUN beat them both?  Personally, I don't think they would.

If just one of the two games is an upset (ACC or PAC-12), chaos will ensue.

I would be up for a rematch only if it is in the National Championship Game.  That would put us or them at #4, and play 'Bama, and personally, I believe that only Ohio State or TTUN are the only two teams in the country this year that could be 'Bama.

Wouldn't it be great to see THE GAME be for all the marbles?  (Like it isn't any other time we play)

STX and Brandon, of course I don't think any coach would intentionally misteach anyone, that itself is an absurd notion.  But - yes - a coach can make a HUGE difference in a QB's mechanics, and route progression reads.

I am not going to throw JT under the bus, and call him a bad QB, he is our leader and I will stand behind him and support him all the way.  But I can question Beck's coaching talents.   A QB should get better as the year progresses, but JT stats would suggest otherwise.  That is not on JT, I blame the staff for not correcting the issue/s.

And why wouldn't Ohio State be ranked #2?  The two teams just below us also have a loss, but the difference is that they both lost AT HOME, and to worse teams, record-wise, than the team that beat us, on the road, and on a blocked field goal.  The PSU offense was basically non-existent in the second half.

Even if Washington, Clemson, and PSU all win out, the committee should see that our strength of schedule and wins are better than Washington's.  Washington would take only one of the three criteria, a conference champ.  Ohio State beats them in all other areas, not even close.

It all boils down to this, does a conference championship mean more than all other areas they are evaluating?

STX, I personally don't think Beck is helping JT read the receiver, and when our receiver is a half-step ahead, he is not teaching JT to throw to the spot as our receiver makes his move.  JT waited just a half-second or second too long, waiting for the receiver to actually be cleared of the defender.  If he is taught to make the throw as the receiver is breaking, we hit some wide open receivers, and possibly score on the play.

Again, I do not - repeat - do not fault JT here.

Harbaugh can cry all he wants (to me, that is a typical sum fan), but the fact of the matter is, our offensive line played a great penalty free game, we had one false start and NO holding calls.  Jimmy also cried that JT did not break the 25 from his vantage point.  Hey Jimmy, YOUR vantage was not at the LOS.

Your offense got outplayed by the Buckeye Defense, and your defense didn't make plays when needed the most. Give credit where credit is do and be a good sport. (and shut the f--- up and go back home)

MJ, I totally agree, this is a young team.  But, the QB coach has not helped JT as the season went on.  In JT's last two weeks, he's thrown zero TD passes, and his completion % was below 50%.  If you watch JT on pass plays, he is not throwing the receiver open, rather he is waiting for the receiver to come open and is missing many throws.  In my eyes, this is NOT his problem, it is a coaching fix, and Beck is not fixing it.

Living up here (yes, in _ichigan), people call Ohio State The Evil Empire.  I think it's pretty damned funny.  I always thought of the ugly helmets as The Evil Empire way before I started hearing it here.

Hove, defensively we need to not overpursue and get caught by the MSU plays where they vacated one side of the field, only to throw or run to the vacated side.  I am sure Shirtless Jimmy will be studying those plays and have something ready for our defense.

Would also love to see us shut down the scum TE, they always seem to hurt us.

With that said, I don't think we lose this game.  UFM is a master motivator and I bet he's got a thing or two planned for ol' Jimmy.

BL, I think the coaches didn't use him enough against Sparty.  He was gashing the defense, and I feel he could have had a bigger day if he could have had 20 touches or more.  With that said, maybe they wanted to limit him because of his shoulder to make sure he is fresh and ready for the 'weenies.

I look for Mike, Webb, and Jordan to have BIG days against scum.
