Comment 27 Nov 2016

I posted this in another thread but I feel it is important to see if this gets talked about in the upcoming days.

IF Oklahoma and Wisconsin win out.  Then Wash and Clem win out.  Then we are really debating the following teams:  Alabama, Clemson, Washington, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Wisconsin.  Correct?

Of all those teams, who can say they have ALREADY BEATEN A POWER 5 CONFERENCE CHAMP?  HOW ABOUT 2?!!!!  How about two, on the road, at night?!?!?!?!  

I think that nugget far outweighs this weeks con champ games.  This coming weekend will help shape Ohio State's narrative.  Nobody has played OSU's schedule out of the teams listed above and if they break the right way, the narrative gets so much better.

I scanned through most of the comments and I never really saw this thought.

Everyone needs to stop with the high school stuff.  The B1G, like all other college football, is ultimately a business.  Period.  If putting some teams on Friday night TV helps in that regard, then so be it.  Yes, Ohio is a huge FNL state, but a majority of the B1G states are not.  If this move helps teams like NU, IU, Ill, Maryland and Rutgers get a few more recruits, which helps them become better, then great.  If it helps TV revenue, then great.  A Friday night game on TV might bring in more excitement then a noon kick for some of the smaller teams.  Not every game can be scheduled at 8pm Saturday.  Not enough TV channels.  If it helps the B1G as a whole, then Im good with it.  

As for the "Ive got Friday night high school...." well, then you do.  DVR the game.  Use your cell phone and watch both.  My daughter will start HS marching band next year.  I will be at all the games.  If OSU has a game at the same time, my priority is my daughter.  This year my son had fall baseball.  Last three games were all scheduled at the same time as OSU kicks.  Lets say my data plan exceeded the limit this past month.  There are ways to work it but everyone has a priority and they will make due.

I always come back to that play.  The video on this thread is not super great but could we have gotten whistled for delay of game on that play?  Based on the video here I just noticed that.  I have said for all these years that call, if done correctly won it for the Bucks in regulation.

I personally don't like night games because I have to wait longer and be nervous for the entire day.  I like 3:30 cause after the win I can enjoy the rest of the evening knowing we won, plus see highlights all night while watching other games.

On a side, has there ever been a discussion about if night games hurt a team with regards to polls?  If a game is played at night, those highlights are hardly ever shown because the sports crank up NFL at around 5am.  If it is a day game, highlights are shown all day Saturday during every game.  I've always wondered if that helps, hurts or has no impact on pollsters.  No biggie, just curious.

I like the idea.  Been saying for a few years now that I would love to see Fox get the B1G and maybe Pac12.  Make a day out of it with some B1G till the evening and then Pac into the night.  I'd stay away from eSECpn for that.  I thought their studio show was good, compared to what espn has.  

Also, doesn't Fox sort of own/run BTN?  Seems like a natural tie in.  Fox Main with a pregame, then a noon B1G, 3:30 B1G, 7PM Pac and a 10PM Pac.  Use FS1 to show other games.  Tie in with BTN and create multi channel CFN goodness.  Maybe make the 7PM your big game of the week, either conference.

I remember that sound of the Braxton TD.  Heard it from the parking lot as I left in a fit of rage that we gave up what appeared to be the losing TD to Wilson.  I remember hearing the roar and just said matter of fact, "oh, we just won the game" and kept walking.  What the hell was I thinking????

To add:  I guess I just wanted more for these guys.  They are such a great team to watch and its a shame it sorta worked out the way it did.  Not about the results but the whole way it went down.  Some people said that Braxton should have taken the last snaps.  I was yelling for it.  Would have loved to see Cardale get a few snaps, sort of like a curtain call.  Instead it was business as usual.  

Great season and loved whipping up on my two of my most hated teams.  Go Bucks.  Thanks for 2015.

After the game yesterday, I felt the same way I did all year, which was sort of "Meh"  I don't know why really.  Last year was so magical that I knew going into 2015 that 2014 was never going to happen again.  2014 may go down as the greatest season ever.  If so, 2015 was never going to top it.  It isn't so much not going to the CFP.  I always felt the only team that was going to beat Ohio State this year was Ohio State.  They did and here we are.  For me, and yesterday was a big example, I felt cheated.  Va Tech game gave us great highlights.  It was almost perfect.  Braxton highlights, Cardale highlights, JT highlights and a long Zeke blast.  I feel that is what we all kind of expected with all the talent.  Everyone having highlights and we sit there and just marvel in it.  After VA Tech, that all disappeared. Braxton disappeared and the offense just went into grind mode.  It got the job almost done but even yesterday, Braxton made a small appearance, Cardale sat and JT and Zeke (aside from his one big run) just got the job done.  Take 2015 and put in on any other OSU team and we would all say it was awesome.  This year it felt too businessman like, not enough wow moments.

I feel I need to weigh in on this important debate.  

I like the breakfast food at CB, but just walking into the place builds up such a rage inside me.  I hate that store more than anything.  No, I don't want to look at Ma and Pa Kettle videos, I want to sit down, eat and get out of there as quick as possible.

I am still attached as my wife of 19 years is from Marion.  The campus is completely changed though.  Kinda sad.

I think there is only 1 MAC school Ohio State hasn't played, my alma mater, Ball State.  Feel free to skip them in the future schedules, I don't wanna deal with it.

Comment 29 Sep 2015

I don't think Spielman is saying they are a top ten team, he is saying "They are the second highest team that could give us a problem"  Guessing he feels we will meet LSU in the playoffs, and that MSU at home will be easier than TTUN on the road.  It was a rank of teams that can cause us problems.
