I was accepted into Ohio State and Notre Dame, and although I never had any doubt in my decision, choosing Ohio State was best decision of my life.  I studied engineering and had a great job lined up months before I graduated (also, Ohio State's engineering program is rated 20 spots or so higher than Notre Dame's, for those who care about that sort of thing).  I'm not surprised that you used the word "historically" in your comment since that's what Notre Dame fans do, but falling back on the old academics argument doesn't really work anymore.

I thought the same thing -- when I think about the best players this year, I think of Elliott (obviously biased), Fournette, and Cook (hurt by injuries but stats like yards per carry make him look amazing).  McCaffrey is like a volume shooter in the NBA who scores a lot of points but isn't even really close to being the best player in the league.

Keenan Reynolds has had an amazing career, but the Heisman isn't a career achievement award.  I would've been fine with him being at the ceremony, but he had a game in Philadelphia today, so I'm doubting he'd want to go straight to New York after the game.

Stanford football is a cut above other programs.  That's why if Stanford loses two games, it's better than losing to one team that is superior to either of the teams to whom Stanford lost.  I also heard that Christian McCaffrey had a large number of all-purpose yards this season, so it must be an oversight that he was only listed once.

I know the West Coast offense can be successful, but having watched the Colt McCoy-Pat Shurmur Browns, it can also turn into endless checkdowns, which quickly becomes ineffective and painful to watch.  Hopefully our defensive line can get some quick pressure on Rudock and reduce Michigan to something similar to this.

I still can't believe that crowd noise rule was ever a thing...  But I'm sure Harbaugh will find plenty of other things to whine about, like when he went ballistic last week after Peppers tackled a guy while a pass was in the air and got called for pass interference.

I'm a Browns fan listening to some Cleveland post-game radio, and there's already been a call for Urban Meyer to coach the Browns.  Obviously Meyer would never go to the Browns, but it drives me crazy that Browns fans even think it's a non-zero possibility.  Until the Browns stop blowing everything up every two years (or sooner), they're not going to be anywhere close to relevant.  Fire the GM who refuses to draft playmakers (Farmer), fire the defensive coordinator who can't run a defense full of high draft picks and expensive free agents (O'Neil -- and this is not a "fire Fickell" notion), but don't blow everything up again.
