  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

I love the combination of these two things.....

Added Meyer: “The last two weeks, we haven't played as good offensively as we expect."

Penn State has 13 total TDs in 6 games. Ohio State has 15 TDs in their last 2 games.

It's going to be FUN on Saturday, watching PSU host some of our future recruits!!

Comment 19 Oct 2014

Absolutely - certainly there are other contenders too. There is something to be said about playing out the season before voting.........

No Regression from the Bye week, Three Picks and a 30+ point homecoming win!!

Comment 18 Oct 2014

I'm not sure we would be picked over a one loss FSU, (Where their loss is to a present top 5 team, and our loss was.......well you know) And so they might as well beat Notre Dame, because a Notre Dame loss is nearly as good as a Michigan loss.

Kyle Flood has his priorities straight!  He has a much better chance of keeping his team from being infected by Ebola than he does of beating The Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon. 

Comment 16 Oct 2014

Rutgers can even get a W without taking a W out of Ohio Stadium. 

I'm glad that unlike Rutgers or Michigan, our Buckeyes don't know anything about these "moral" victories. 

Comment 16 Oct 2014

Wisky is probably the favorite, but the Buckeyes could/should be right there at the end.  Like on the football team, our playmakers are all underclassmen, and if they come together they should be a lot of fun to watch!  Most B1G teams at the top lost a good bit from last year, and so the league could be less powerful at the top, but that much deeper as a whole.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

EIGHT - all 5 champions from the ACC, B1G, Big12, Pac 12 & SEC and then three spots for the next best and independents, however it falls.  Tell me you wouldn't want to have watched these games last year;

FL State v Mizzu - winner gets the winner of Sparty v Stanford

Auburn v Ohio State - winner gets the winner of Alabama v Baylor 

Any more than 8 and you lose the value of being a conference champion, but all power conference champs should get a shot, and so you need 8. 

Comment 13 Oct 2014

It's obviously too low, BUT, we got beat at home and didn't look good doing so. And we are paying the price for that. Thankfully it was early, and IF we continue to show the progress we have in the 3:30 and the 8:00 games ahead, we should be right there when it matters. 

Comment 10 Oct 2014

"nearly all of us made a point of following committee protocol of emphasizing conference championships. Pac-10 champ USC (No. 4 vs. No. 5), Big Ten champ Penn State (No. 5 vs. No. 8) and ACC champ Virginia Tech (No. 13 vs. No. 19) all came in higher in our rankings than in the final 2008 BCS standings."

"Good defenses stand out more than powerful offenses"

"I, however, was among several who felt that evaluating who a team beat over the course of its other 11-12 games is far more enlightening than singling out the one game it lost."

Be the B1G Champ - The D has to keep looking better, while playing statistaclly well - and hopefully VaTech will be forgiven as a young team learning as they grew.
