So you're announcing that the The Fan announced that Pitt announced today that they will announce Narduzzi as the head coach Friday? Cool

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Antonio Pittman also left early and could have been on the 2007 team as well

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Beanie Wells and Donald Washington on the Rose Bowl winning 2009 team would have been something special

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Yeah Santonio Holmes, Donte Whitner, and Ashton Youboty all left after 2005 and could have played in 2006

Yeah it took me awhile to warm up to Jay having his own show but it has quickly become one of my favorites. Plus it helps that he is not on ESPN

Here's the thing...I don't think we want Baylor to lose unless someone in front of us loses as well. Clearly Baylor has not been seen as a better team than Ohio State thus far, but what we don't know is how big of a factor they are otherwise. If we agree for a minute that Ohio State still has a shot to surpass TCU given that one of our best games is coming this weekend and one of TCU's worst games is coming, a Baylor loss may hurt us. Reason being it would make TCU a sole champion of a power 5 conference thus strengthening their case. Let's say that out of the 12 voters, 8 of them favor TCU over Baylor and 4 favor Baylor over TCU. Well, if Baylor loses, that puts more votes in TCU's bucket and may not allow us to jump them no matter what we do. Obviously this is all speculation on my part, but it's fun to contemplate nonetheless.

Yes it looks good on paper, but last year at this time we thought that we would have Braxton and Noah as part of the 2014 team. They have not and will not play a snap this year. Anything can, and usually will, happen. I'm going to enjoy the few games that we left and leave next year for the offseason.

By my count, Ohio State has beaten 9 bowl eligible teams:

Navy (6-5)

Virginia Tech (6-6)

Cincinnati (8-3)

Maryland (7-5)

Rutgers (7-5)

Penn State (6-6)

Illinois (6-6)

Michigan State (10-2)

Minnesota (8-4)

Michig... oops (LOL)

Still...9 teams.

Meh I'm not really a fan of Dinich. I've read/heard most of her stuff this year since she has been anointed as ESPN's "playoff expert" and I feel like her "analysis" is just to echo whatever the overall narrative is at the time. On the morning after the Sparty game she even went as far as to say that the B1G was the big loser in the weekend because Ohio State had no shot and pretty much eliminated the conferences only chance. Lo and behold the narrative drastically changed and only a few days later she was singing Ohio State's praises as loud as anyone.

It really isn't that uncommon. The Big Ten did this for years before expansion and the addition of the championship game. For example, we lost to Penn State in 2008 but we finished with the same record and therefore are recognized as co-champs (PSU has since vacated their share of the championship).

EDIT - actually happened in '05 as well. With us and Penn State. And once again, Penn State has vacated that share

I'm more interested to see how they change on the defensive side of the ball. Spielman said it and I totally agree, we cannot play the Badgers in man defense because if Gordon gets the edge on the front seven our DB's will have their backs to the wall. But to tie it back in with the offense, I think our D and special teams play will be much more aggressive this week to give our offense short fields to work with.
