Just curious... I have heard that as a condition of Urban Meyer's employment at OSU that he does NOT report to Gene Smith. If this is true, then why is Smith performing Meyer's review? Does anyone have any insight into this?
Taking a look at the selection committee, Jeff Long (who is unfortunately the committee chair) and Archie Manning appear to be the lone SEC homers out of the 13 members.
And remember that the first criteria for selection is whether a team won its conference. I'm still holding out hope that the committee can ignore influences like ESPN's propaganda and whatever else the SEC has up its sleeve. I wouldn't put anything past them. Slive certainly has his sights on two spots and he is directing ESPN's content to promote that at all costs.
Crap, they fixed it.
Is Tome Herman related to Booker T. Washington?
It's a list of SEC homers, even by ESPN's standards. Brian Bennett looks to be the lone B1G rep, and we all know how he feels about Ohio State.
Not to make excuses for 'Bama, but Nippert is not a legit site for a major college football game.
I saw a disease-infected sewer rat cough up something that looked like that.
Your comments regarding the Boren family are ignorant. The Borens are a tremendous asset to Ohio State.
WOW gets worse every year.
The committee isn't really defining it. That's the problem.
There are years the SEC has deserved two teams, but this certainly has the potential to be a complete cluster.
I think the committee's job would be easier if its task was to rank the four "most deserving" teams, rather than the four "best." Hypothetically, one of the four best teams could have eight losses.
Lived in the Florida Panhandle for four years after graduation from OSU and had a similar experience to most who have commented. Fun time, but not home.
Been back almost 15 years.
I'm excited to go out and get a class together that will hopefully be a top-three class nationally.
They would also like to white out about 18 of their last 20 seasons.
Intersting that Dick Vermeil, who was broadcasting the Rose Bowl with Musberger (remember the classic "those refs ought to donate their checks to charity") ended up drafting Germaine.
