I trust that nobody else could get this young team ready to face the challenges they face in this playoff race. It's gonna be tough but no matter what the outcome is it means more experience to be even stronger next year - scary good!

The youngest team also goes into this with the least to lose and I like that perspective. Clemson has everything riding on this. This is their seniors' chance at redemption from their 'Bama loss last year but we all know what can happen when you try to force things. Hopefully our young team goes in loose and sets out to have some fun in the spotlights and prove that just because they are young does not mean they cannot be dominant!

We nearly beat PSU on their home turf in semi-bad weather after they had a bye week ahead of us not to mention that we played Wisconsin the week before on their home turf in semi-bad weather after they, too, had a bye week. Sorry for the run-on sentence but my point is how, exactly, do you suppose we would lose to PSU on a neutral field? I just don't see the logic there. Not trying to be a jerk but I seriously do not know what I am missing in what I know about the two teams. PSU might have looked great last night after Wisconsin's D tired out but you know what our D can do to PSU even without the luxury of a bye week prior to the game that PSU was lucky enough to get.

I have respect for Wisconsin but yeah, they have this knack for getting in that game only to choke. I mean, haven't they only won a single B1G championship out of like 5 trips since it started? I think B1G needs to re-think their selection rules for the championship game honestly.

This one wasn't anywhere near as bad as the first one last night titled something like "We Are In" which rather disgusted me to be honest. 

I upvoted you cuz I agree but ultimately we know 11W needs some clickbait from time to time and I love all the speculation regardless. Plus keep in mind that no matter what we do we will never be anywhere near as arrogant as 'Bama!

Anyone pissed off about 2 B1G teams getting in should look at that 2011 example. That is exactly the kind of SEC Bullcrap that we've had to endure in the past and should silence the critics. I firmly believe that, even though I hate them more than TTUN lately, PSU deserves to be 4th (as long as we are 2 or 3 that is). 

Comment 04 Dec 2016

I admit I am a little nervous but not sure why. I feel like we get what we deserve either way it shakes out so that's all fine and good. But what makes me nervous is just where we end up in the playoffs if we do get in. My ideal situation would be:

1) Bama 2) Clemson 3)tOSU 4)PSU. I think PSU has enough of an argument now to get in and this would be my dream scenario as we would get to see PSU prove themselves, we get a shot at redemption against Clemson and icing on the cake is we might even see the chance to rematch PSU and redeem our one loss on a national stage on neutral ground!  

Note: I put Clemson at 2 for two reasons. I think them being 12-1 edges them in above us and I think we want them to be ranked higher just so we can use that as fuel for the fire!

Question: Would it be better to do away with the current B1G rules regarding conference championship contenders and do it by committee as well or are we just in an all out fluke 5 year period so far that has allowed multiple (non)conference loss teams to get in over a team with a legit resume and fewer losses than any other team in the B1G?

I read an article about the hardships he faced in life - having a father in jail, having an older brother die when he was 14 due to gang related activities and how he managed to avoid that life. Kind of made me think that he was going to make something special out of his life - Then he goes and acts like a thug before, during and after this game. What a chump!
