LSU and A&M are 4-loss, unranked teams. Neither of them is any more impressive than Minnesota, or even Cincinnati. Did you not see LSU just get shut out by a previously 4-5 Arkansas team that hadn't won an SEC game since beating Kentucky over 2 years ago?

Ole miss started off amazingly but has been kinda struggling recently. They've dropped 2 of their last 3 games with that lone win being vs. Presbyterian. That's all I meant.

Good point. The Top 10, reigning B1G and Rose Bowl Champs, on the road, at night. Nothing prime time about that.

This is exactly what I meant. You're spouting ignorant BS with no basis in reality and then getting upset with people when they attack you for it.

I think you need to go back and read what the OP said. He put the "fans" in parentheses in regards to their thoughts about the final rankings, not about right now. He's talking about the people that feel like, even if we win out, we still need this team or that team to lose in order for us to deserve to be in.

My statement was not ignorant.

Yes it was. We just the week prior went into an actual primetime game on the road vs. a top 10 team and had a very impressive win. Seems like they are pretty damn ready for primetime. Even teams that are ready for primetime aren't impervious to a bad game, especially when it's being played in the coldest conditions an OSU team has played in in decades. However, that is not some sort of indictment against the team all of the sudden.

Basically, to apply your logic to another situation, it's like telling your son he's not ready for high school because he got a C on a test a week after getting an A on a test. Does that make sense?

Right. I never said it would be meaningless or anything like that, sorry if I gave that impression. It still won't be as good as our best win though. That's just one of the reasons why I think we'd be ranked ahead of them.

That wouldn't really be your opinion then. All you're doing is just going along with the committee's current rankings without offering any input. Beside's, the rankings now are meaningless; the only ones that matter are the final ones. I'm just not sure why you took offense to this.

When did I ever say anything to the contrary? You're not really proving a point against what I said.

That's your reality. My reality, and apparently the reality of many CFB analysts, is that we are deserving. It doesn't make your opinion more "realistic".

I will say, if we win out, we will unquestionably be ahead of Miss St.  They have one chance to get a somewhat decent win this year over a struggling Ole Miss team. I don't see Auburn beating Bama this year, and in fact I think it's a blowout, so there's 0 argument for MSU to be in the discussion.

If Mizzou wins out and the SEC gets shut out of the very first CFB playoff, I would piss my pants with glee.

Thanks, now I'm gonna have to sit here and watch golden retriever puppy dog videos all morning instead of work.

For god's sake Northbrook, you aren't simply being constructively critical of the team, you're making a moronic statement like "we're not ready for prime time", even though just 2 weeks ago we proved in resounding fashion we are. The game Saturday was entirely predacated on untimely turnovers and one BS pass interference call that took points off the board for us. That game was nowhere near as close as the score indicated and anyone who watched it from start to finish knows that. If you had said something like "this team showed today that there are areas they need to improve on", that would be much more well-received and people would happily discuss that. Simply stating "Jalin Marshal, the defense and the special teams aren't ready for primetime" is just ignorant and not based in reality and sounds whiney, which is what you've done this entire thread.

Many of our parents or parents parents supported Jim Crow, disagreed with the woman's right to vote, said the world was flat (thanks Logamaniac), that the planets revolved around the earth, believed the earth was 6000+ years old, etc.

Yeah, and that means absolutely nothing towards making your point. Those things have all been proven innaccurate and wrong. Spanking, however, has never been proven to be wrong. In fact, I'd argue the majority of people who were spanked as a kid believe it was right and helped them understand.

Kids' minds are not capable of adult-level rationale and logic. They're immature. They know very base-level emotions: pain and happiness. They don't understand social responsibility. Sitting and talking with them as if they do doesn't make much sense.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

I think there's an enormous difference between hitting and spanking. I don't have children, but if and when I do, I have no problem giving them a smack on the butt if they're acting up. I got it, every friend I ever had got it, and it worked. We weren't getting abused or anything, but we learned our lesson.

That said, there's no excuse for hitting a kid so hard you're leaving bruises up and down their body. That absolutely is abuse, and in that regard I fully agree with you.

I was kinda thinking the opposite. Ball has been used quite a bit this year. Obviously not a threat for serious playing time, but I kinda of figured he was in better graces, no?

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Tony Pauline reported yesterday that he very well could declare as he's had a very solid season, but with the Buckeyes turning this season around and potentially being a title team next year, he could easily see him coming back. I tend to lean towards the latter, not only because it's what I really want, but from a financial standpoint, he could make himself a LOT of money by coming back and becoming more dominant. OTs with his size are coveted, and with a solid senior year, he could very well be a potential 1st rounder, which he very likely won't be this year.
