The reason for the playoff is to find the true champion or just entertainment? It is glaringly evident that there are never one ,two or four teams that separate themselves from the rest of college football. We end up using this thing called the " look test" to judge who  has a chance to " win" the title. No, that is not a good way to find the champion in any sport. 

  I think anyone in the top 10 can beat anyone else on any given day so I would make the field 12 with byes to the top 4 conference  winners and a home game for them after the bye. That gives plenty of incentive to win your conference and not rest players.

I am taking 3 with me and we have a ticket to sell. Looking forward to taking over Horseshoe West. We are traveling about 4 hours there.

I will be there with 5 Buckeye buddies. Looking for good food and Buckeye fellowship. Where are most Buckeye tailgates happening?

Comment 22 Sep 2015

IAMFIN, I will be driving in from Columbus with 5 in tow. My cousin is a Rutgers alum but will be wearing a Buckeye jersey. We are up for tailgating. Let me know when and where.

I too can see the sec getting left out because Michigan State has a really good chance to end up #2 going into the OSU game which if they lose a close one to us may only drop them to #4. Add the probability that Oregon will take care of business out west (they end up 5-8 in the polls) and MSU has a decent argument for getting in the playoff.

   Georgia Tech and maybe Oklahoma get the other bids. This leaves two major conferences out of the playoffs and MAJOR fighting going on behind the scenes....which then gives birth to a 8-10 or 12 team playoff. If the sec gets left out ESPN will surly expand the playoffs. This is my grand hope.

Just completed the first tough stretch in the schedule (good away opponent and then a 5 or really a 4 day turn around). Came out of it with two lopsided scores and a shut out. I am happy for the results and confident that the sloppiness will get cleaned up. I am old enough now to know  when to sit back and enjoy a good ride and this season is going to be a awesome ride.

Go Hokies! After the past two encounters with VT, and talking with Hokie fans while on vacation in MB, I have a new understanding and respect for the VT program. From their HC down through their traditions to their fans I now like Virginia Tech and will pull for them.

Sequoia, good work. I am sorry some readers on here are missing the point. The SEC is average to bad when playing outside their backyard. This can not be denied. Stats do not lie and they do everything in their power to avoid leaving their comfort zone.

Doesn't Vegas give 7-10 points for far away travel? There is a reason for that. It is one of the most difficult things to do in football- travel long distance to a different climate and win. 

If the Buckeyes played their bowl games in Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, NYC and Philly I am sure they would have about 5 more National Championships. That is just going back to 1970.

Cleveberg is the most correct. We are in a golden age, so enjoy the moment we are in regardless of how long it last. The view from on top of this mountain is great, I hope it last for 10 years. But, ask Bama fans how short that stay can be.

This has the makings of one of the all time great college offenses. This is coming from a guy almost 50 years old who saw Nebraska put 35 points on some teams in one quarterback in the 80s and 90s.

 3 players that have rushed for 1,000 yards in a season on the field at the same time.

2 of the best passing QBs in the country.

4 out 5 O lineman back from a group that rapped and pillaged 3 of the best teams in the country last year.

WRs coming out of the wood work that any team in the country would die for.

I will be driving to Jersey from Ohio to see the game and see family ( Long Branch). I will be responsible for 3 very loud Buckeye jersey wearing wild men that I am bringing. I warned my NJ family that they are about to be taken over by Buckeye Nation. I don't think they realize there is any other football other than the NFL.

Both of these guys may be among the top 5 to 6 QBs ever at OSU. Urban is not your ordinary HOF coach. He is a creative, offensive genius and I believe will use this unique opportunity to design an offensive scheme which we have never seen before. He did it at BG with much less talented players. Get ready for a full blown offensive juggernaut that stretches the field sideline to sideline. I would be shocked if either of these QBs gets less than 30% of the snaps.

  Urban sees these two as weapons of mass destruction and wants every team they face to fear them both.
