I understand this might not be a popular opinion, and I want to make it perfectly clear that yes, these people are despicable and the fact that they would taunt college students via Twitter is utterly repugnant.

But, I really, really wish you guys would stop doing this. I consider this site to be significantly above Buzzfeed-level cherry picking of hateful comments on Twitter. All it does is amplify the voices of people who no one would know of or care about otherwise, and encourages more harassment by making their Twitter handles visible to anyone who comes to this site. 

And ultimately, what's the news here? That there are awful, dumb people on the internet and they say awful, dumb things? We all know this already. All this serves to do is perpetuate a distorted, unrealistic image of what the Ohio State fanbase at large is actually like.

The anguish on here is mind numbing.

J.T. is a wonderful player, but what have you seen him do that entitles him to the position right now? He entered the game in relief of Cardale last week, and what happened? The offense continued to stall, the turnovers continued to mount, and the general ineptitude did not subside.

Clearly, there's more at work here than just the quarterback situation. We've seen these guys both perform brilliantly. I don't think either one of them just suddenly forgot how to play football.

Cardale won the job before the season started. It hasn't been taken from him yet. We haven't seen anything in the first three games that suggests that it should be, and according to Meyer, that's also the case in practice.

If a quarterback is the result of the players around him, then maybe it isn't a coincidence that either of these guys aren't playing well right now. Maybe kinks need to be worked out with the offense at large. Cardale is the guy. As the team improves, so will he. This is an Urban Meyer-coached team. You can be damn sure that they're all trying their best to find their footing.

The point about the contrasting styles of Barrett and Jones is a good one. Their styles don't only dictate the way they each play, but it sets a completely different tone for the offense at large, and I can't imagine that's an easy transition for the other 10 guys on the field. You either prefer the big-play threat of Cardale Jones, or you prefer the smooth operating of J.T. Barrett. They both work. But it's time to pick one and go. You want to be entering conference play having found your footing.

You're right. It doesn't matter. In my eyes, the 4-team playoff has nearly eliminated the perceived importance of conference strength.

Do you think anyone gives a crap if Purdue loses to Marshall today? Does it really hurt the Buckeyes when a Melvin Gordon-less Wisconsin team loses by more than two touchdowns to Alabama, a major playoff contender? Are they really going to hold other teams' losses against Ohio State? 

The bottom line is this: An Ohio State team that dominates its conference and wins in Indianapolis has as good as, if not a better shot than any other team to make it to the dance.

If Ohio State worries about itself, everything else will fall into place, regardless of how other teams in the conference perform.

I just disagree with "The Big Ten needs to perform better." Does it? Why? Did it matter last year? As it relates to the team we all love, does it really matter that much? In terms of what happens on the field and how it affects our team, I would say only rarely has it ever affected Ohio State. If the Big Ten performs poorly, it only ever seems to matter to people with Twitter and on-air personalities. Reality is much different. The 4-team playoff, to me, has all but eliminated the perceived importance of "top to bottom conference strength."

College football is the SEC and everyone else?

Well, last year, The Big Ten was Ohio State and everyone else.

It was enough last year, and if Ohio State dominates the Big Ten again, it'll be enough this year, too.

Well done, Mr. Pryor. I'll remember those two throws to Jake Ballard and Devier Posey for the rest of my life. I know that has nothing to do with this topic, but still.

Oh, whatever. If a single person utters something as nonsensical as "That Iowa loss to Tennessee really puts a dent in the perception of the Big 10 going into next season," they need to walk outside, get some air and hopefully return with a little perspective.

That is, quite easily, one of the most remarkable comebacks I've ever seen.

Not a fan. Whatever quarrels you have aren't bigger than the game itself. I'm betting a lot of those kids want to play professionally some day. They should conduct themselves as such.

Comment 26 Oct 2014

I think the collection of blowouts lulled us into forgetting that this team - especially on offense - is still very, very young. Penn State might not be  of the quality that we're most familiar with them being, but they have talented football players, and they had a rowdy, massive fanbase to play for under the lights. And even with them facing pressure from an extremely hostile environment - the first this team has faced all year - our boys got it done. Hopefully Ohio State will leave having learned a few lessons about how to maintain momentum throughout the course of a game, and how to put a team away when you're in control of a game. But to learn some very valuable lessons and come out with a win on the other side is something I think we can and should be proud of.

That's really it, isn't it? Regardless of what networks perpetuate and how many people on television try to convince us otherwise, there is actually no discernible punishment for poor results. I mean, what REALLY happens if the Big 10 loses all of its bowl games? Will the conference's lucrative TV contracts vanish into thin air? Will the football programs fold? Of course not. The Mark Mays of the world will yap, and the schools will giggle to themselves as they receive millions upon millions of dollars each year.
