Geez. How many years of eligibility would Latwan Anderson have left?! Feels like it's been 10 years since his recruitment (I know it hasn't been 10 years).
Upvotes for you, good sir
It pains me to say it, but Herman is probably as good as gone. Yeah Meyer pays his assistants more, but Herman has been phenomenal and with his track record he's going to have every potential head coaching opening looking at him. Gotta believe it's a matter of when, not if. Would LOVE to see him stick around 1 more season, as I truly think next year could be special.
Hands down Grant. Grant shut Tony Lippett down, and while Cooper is better than Lippett... Grant gives us our best chance of success. If the coaches were smart (unlike the game against Funchess, I mean Michigan) they would shadow Cooper with Bell or Powell.
Someone to cover Amari Cooper... Shawn Springs? Antonie Winfield? Malcolm Jenkins? Chris Gamble?
I lean towards Gamble for the simple fact he played both ways, so by adding Gamble you're really adding 2 positions. While I'm sure Springs, Winfield, & Jenkins were all capable of playing both ways... they didn't.
Devin Smith, Rod Smith, Jake Stoneburner ... pretty hard to argue with any of those three. I'll lean towards Devin Smith tho. IMO, he's capable of a whole lot more than what we've seen...
Question: if we are the #4 team and we're playing the #1 (Alabama) team... how come we get the "home" uni? Shouldn't we be sporting the "away" uni?!
What a moment for the kid...
A lot of Derps there.
The butthurt is SO REAL with scUM fans... You should see the conversation with my two scUM friends this morning
Baffles my mind when people look to next year when we're STILL playing this yar and STILL competing for a National Championship. Can't we focus on trying to win a Title THIS SEASON before we start to speculate on winning one next season?!
Agreed. Thought Powell's was the best.
Here's what you do... Execute executive order, and change the system immediately. Give Bama & Oregon byes, and then out Ohio State vs Florida State and TCU vs Baylor, and then the winner of the TCU/Baylor game plays Bama and the OSU/FSU winner plays Oregon.
This is a great thread, but a weak topic. A better question would be... If Ohio State doesn't make the Playoffs, what bowl game do they go to then, and who do they likely get matched up against?!

I really hope Ed Warriner returns next season. What that guy has done for the Buckeye offensive line is unreal.
I'm just happy that FINALLY after all these recent years of domination, we FINALLY have something (ie a Big Ten Championship) to show for it!
I honestly think Ohio State should be 1 of the 4 Playoff teams. I think tonight's performance proved they're one of the 4 best teams in the country.
With all that being said, I'm honestly fine if we're left out. If we truly wanted in, then we should have taken care of business and beat Virginia Tech. Win and you're in. Simple as that. And we did not win that game.

1.) Carlos "El Guapo" Hyde (way more dependable & tougher than Chris Wells, IMO)
2.) Braxton Miller (if you're including QBs)
3.) Chris Wells (Haubtimus Prime said it best... durability cost Wells the #1 spot)
4.) Ezekiel Elliott
5.) Antonio Pittman
If you're including Maurice Clarett, he goes straight to the top of my list.

I was just coming here to post this myself (I know... a little late). This is GOLD!
