Is there actually such a thing as a Houston message board?
Found it, Congratulations Alabama for participating in the inaugural College Football Playoff!
My real estate agent friend said they heard Bill Cowher was buying a house in
Strongsville Ann Arbor.
as much as some of their crazy talk was terrible they did come through with one of the best lines in a while. When coming back from an in studio update, Gus says "Charles, what the heck is that growing on his face?" At our house we were all in the having the same conversation looking at the freaking ridiculous mutton chops the in studio host had growing everywhere but his chin. It was gold
If anyone is going to say OSU doesn't deserve to be in the top 4 because of an inconsistent Defense, then there is only 1 team out of all of the contenders that should be in the top 4, and that would make it only a top 1. All of these team have warts, and if our problem is defense, then i like where we sit, because out of the "contenders" we are top 4 in Defense too.

PR / KR / DB / WR, i think he'd help a little bit, it has been a while, but I don't remember a bunch of turnovers in the Kick return game with him.
we don't have any effect on outcomes,"
You may not have that much effect on a game as a fan, but the rest of us are all wearing the same clothes we wore when we beat up MSU, sitting in the same seat, not moving when the game is going well, drinking the same beer, and watching the games with the same people.
Dream scenario, Alabama loses to Auburn, Miss St loses to Ole Miss, would Ole Miss be the rep from the SEC West in that scenario? They would have beaten both Miss St and Ala head to head. Then we have Missouri beat Ole Miss in the SEC Championship game who lost to Indiana who is 0 for the BIG.
I thought the "M!CH!GAN man" way to do this was to just leave it up to a "Team Vote". Yes i'm looking at you Les Miles and Jeremy Hill.
That was my beer of choice while OSU was beating up MSU, I may have to start drinking a bunch of those every saturday.
Unfortunately I think you are 100% right with this and that sucks. Everyone that says just keep winning and everything will be fine isn't paying attention to what those teams ahead of us have left. We need something crazy to happen to at least 1 or 2 of the teams ahead of us to manage to get into the top 4. Simply winning out isn't going to do it.
ORE v ASU will put one of them out, but leaves the winner in.
FSU has nobody tough on their schedule, without something crazy they are in.
TCU has nobody left on their schedule, if we don't get the benefit of being OSU they could be in ahead of us.
Baylor has KSU left, but between TCU / Baylor as of now 1 would be in.
And oh ya, i almost for got, secsecsec, MSU v ALA would knock out ALA if they lost, but a 1 loss MSU would remain ahead of us. Somehow we need everyone in the SEC to come away with 2 losses by having Georgia or Missouri win the sec championship game. Even in that situation, do you really see them having NO sec representative in the playoff?
We still have a long road ahead of us and need to take care of our own business, but need to keep hoping for mayhem to hit across all of College Football.
OSU - Eleventy Billion
MSU - Threeve
I think that means we win.
After OSU scores a TD on the first possession of OT, Bosa sacks their QB 3 consecutive plays injuring the starting QB, 2nd, and 3rd string QB's on each play. MSU at this point has nobody on their roster capable of throwing a forward pass and rather than bring someone else in, at the risk of Bosa injuring another player, they decide to just concede the W and go for the field goal. They would rather make the score look closer and have a "higher quality" loss by only losing 37-33 rather than 37-30 at home.
Plus Bollman is their OC, I could easily see him just run Dave 3 times and decide to kick the FG.
unfortunately I think our "Sizeable" jump into the top 10 will be from where we are to about #10. Not the jump SEC teams get like going from 12 to 3 for beating TA&M. MSU will drop to about 17 too, they won't get the one of the quality losses that Ole Miss is racking up.
All wins against the SEC are apparently huge wins and should at least boost you up into the top 25, so i think they get to be considered bitch slaps.
Shouldn't TA&M still be ranked because of there huge win over a top 10 South Carolina team, that's a huge win?
That's only 3 teams though, a ton of things have to go perfect for those 3 teams which is very unlikely, and if everything goes 100% right for us the best case scenario would be MSU at about #4, Minn at #14, and Nebraska at #8. I see MSU being there when we play them, but unfortunately I don't have much faith in Minn and NEB to get to us without losing a game. More realistic expectations would be MSU at 4, Minn dropping a game and playing them about about #22, and Nebraska dropping a game and being around #20. Stanford last year got 6 "top 25" wins.
ASU twice, #23 and #11. WASH at #15. UCLA at #9. Oregon at #2. ND at #25.
MSU #4, NEB #8, MINN #14. (In a perfect world) This still isn't looking good for us to be where Stanford was last year. We would have needed Maryland at #20, Rutgers at #25, PSU at #22. None of this is happening. Those middle of the road BIG teams with winning records don't get the overrated bump into the top 25 that makes a schedule look tough. Sorry, but it's true.
If only we had someone notable alumni and or fans in the media to start spreading that narrative. We are looking at you Robert Smith, Kirk Herbstreit, Chris Spielman, Jay Crawford.
Sorry dude, but this is where i went after reading that.
Stanford was given credit for being a top 5 team because they beat a bunch of overrated teams along they way, not at all because of losing to a 4-8 team. The problem that we have is that there is no chance in hell for a bunch of teams we are beating are going to get overrated and make it look like we beat a bunch of so called "good" teams.
You are spot on here. The way I look at it is, if we could go back to the time the Flu was first contracted in the US, quarantine the people who had or may have had it for 1 month, make sure they are either fine or sick then have the disease eliminated wouldn't that be worth it?
I'd rather have us go a little overboard here to make sure Ebola is contained, than to be relaxed about how it's been handled and give it any chance of turning into to an epidemic over the next 10 to 20 years.
You sure seem to know a lot about weed slang and how dealing drugs works........ hmm, who are you, what SEC team did you play for?
There from Kentucky guys, this hole pour grammar thing is a mute point.
Agreed, for a while ESPN was the only reason I had cable, but now that it's pretty brutal and like you said, the only reason to watch it is when OSU is playing on it, I've actually cut my cable for just internet and over the air TV and it's been great. It does stink a little when OSU is on ESPN, but it's a good reason to get a chance to go to the bar for some terrible food and a few beers. I will admit though, I do need to try and get someones watchespn login info for when I'm on vacation or on a long trip to watch some games.
