If they were going to OSU on an academic scholarship and took a high paying job before they had their degree no one would say a word. Somehow physical skills aren't viewed as important as mental. They were recruited to play football not invent the cure for cancer.* I hope they continue with their education for their sake but let's not pretend that they shame Ohio State by going into their chosen profession as soon as possible.  *does not include Craig Krenzel. He could find a cure for cancer.

I'm sorry, but I still can't get up for this game. Whenever I see something about the playoffs, I sigh and change the channel. That should be us there and not Sparty. Honestly, I still feel like Miss Columbia after Steve Harvey yanked the crown off her head and handed it to someone else. I know come 1 pm on the 1st I will be jacked, but even if the Bucks were to blow them out it would still feel like my stomach an hour after I ate Chinese food.

I think that, back when the BIG only sent a team to the Rose, playing in a bowl for either Michigan or Ohio State really was anti-climatic. It's not that they didn't want to win the Rose Bowl, it's just I think they often didn't have anything left in the tank. Besides, Woody, Bruce, Cooper and Tressel all geared their teams to win the BIG, which meant stout running games for November runs pared with stout run defenses. Sometimes the teams they faced in the various bowls liked to try the forward pass also.

The problem with expanding to 8 teams is that #9 is going to bitch. It's so very easy as a Buckeye fan to want to expand, but the simple truth is we had one game to win and the entire team/staff played/ coached like crap. We win that game and all of us are happy right now and think the system is just fine. If (or should I say, when) they expand, it should never be more than 8 teams. And conference champs must get a place! I'd rather see a three loss Big 12 champ get in instead of 3 SEC teams that ESPN would push for.

How bad is the SEC East if Florida was good enough to win that division? I almost feel sorry for Alabama because they have no idea how bad their team is...yet. I'd put Oklahoma at 1, The Other Michigan at 2, Clemson at 3 and Bamy at 4. I think that the Sooners would roll (pun intended) the Tide and Sparty would introduce Clemson to a team with a defense. Hells bells, Sparty might just win the whole damn thing.

Beating Michigan will always be sweet, but the season seems lost to me. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but then again, this is The Ohio State University returning a ton of talent from last season's national championship. We should expect it all. Beating Michigan has become commonplace; it's expected as much as I expect to beat Indiana or Penn St. Even the beat down the Bucks put upon them this year won't remove the bitter taste of losing to The Other Michigan.

I know that Meyer and Saban are the only two coaches ever to win national titles at two different schools, but WHEN the Bucks win the title again this year, Meyer will be the only coach to win multiple titles at more than one school. GOAT indeed.

I agree with this being Matta's best team.  It is true that we have only played a pretty easy schedule so far, but like FSU in football, we have demolished all of those teams. What strikes me about this particular squad is the balance at both ends of the court. While Turner was here, players seemed to stand back and let him run the show. With the '06 team there was too much youth. But this team is playing well, spreading it around and as noted playing killer D. I also appreciate how much Matta is using his bench. (Possibly because he knows what little he will have returning next season?) I know the BIG still looms ahead and March is a million years away, but if this teams continues to progress they have an excellent chance at another Final Four.
