You're definitely on to something.  I'm of the belief (as are many here that I've seen) that they should wait until like...week 6 or so to start ranking teams.

I would have to say, though, the whole process would become even more convoluted if there were no polls until the end of the year.  There has to be a way to write some huge algorithm that can help us calculate which teams are the best and which aren't, taking everything into consideration.  But until then, I believe that ranking teams "makes it easier" to decide playoffs, bowl games, etc.

I like the #PSUMildlyDislikeWeek thing - freaking hilarious.

That being said, I more than just "mildly dislike" Penn State.  I hate them.  Not as much as I hate TTUN and whatnot, but I want Penn State to lose every game unless it's:

A.  Against TTUN
B.  Against an SEC school
C.  Against Florida State
D.  It helps OSU somehow in the B1G East

Something always irked me about them, even before the child sex abuse scandal.

That's the kind of stuff that can get you Coach of the Year in this conference.

#re5pect indeed...keep the recovery rolling!

JT/Brax read option...they can switch back and forth between QB.  They can both throw at anytime.  Defenses won't know what the hell to do.  That's how I envision it...of course it's much more complicated than I probably realize to implement something like that.

Because hitting your own players is so much better than hitting players from other schools.

They're a secondary rival.  TTUN will always be Public Enemy #1, but PSU has been a thorn at times over the years.  You look at every B1G school that OSU has played 20+ times, and PSU is the only one other than TTUN that has beaten OSU more than like 15-20% of the time.  They've been a thorn at times and I like to see them get snipped.

This will be grand.  I will say, the PSU defense and the environment will be a nice test to have just two weeks before Sparty.  Of course PSU's defense isn't as good as Sparty's, though the stadium is bigger and the atmosphere will be just as hostile.

And the Buckeye train keeps on rolling.  Do we make it five in a row over 50+?  I'm betting no, but will it matter?  No.

OSU 41, PSU 13

2 hours and 18 minutes?  It would probably take me 2 days and 18 hours to do 26.2 miles.  Bloody hell.

When my cousin got married a few years ago, it was a destination wedding that turned into a week vacation.  They had a separate reception for people who didn't make the trip, which I went to anyway.  Big difference, though - not during football season.  Thank goodness for that.

Looks like us fellow Bengals fans need that same reality check.  In the course of 15 days, the Bengals have gone from legitimate contenders to...I don't even know what I'd call it but it's nothing close to legitimate contenders.  At this point, I have no idea what to expect.  The Bengals are always good for some spectacular losses every year, so they may be fine for all we know.  Or they may be falling apart at the seams.

As far as the Browns go, they started 3-2 last year, too, and look what happened.  Also, look at the teams that they beat - Saints, Titans, and Steelers - not exactly a murderer's row of teams, plus they also lost to the Steelers a few weeks before beating them.  I'd give it a few more games to prove that they've really turned things around, because they tend to play worse in the second half of the season than they do in the first half - just something my untrained eye has noticed over the years.
