Bowl Record Shmowl Record. The day someone says "Ohio State would be a lock for the playoff if Indiana had beaten Duke," I'll start caring about bowl records. But that's never happened. The only punishment for poor conference bowl records is listening to people on TV pretending to make it a big deal. If Ohio State beats Oklahoma at home next year and wins the conference, they will be back in the playoff. It is that simple. Bowl records will not matter, and I have basically never seen a tangible way in which poor conference bowl records have affected Ohio State.

I have absolutely no idea whether or not this is a good hire, and I'm not going to pretend to.

But a change was needed, and this is why I trust Urban Meyer. 

He's been a great coach in large part because of his lack of stubbornness. He is willing to adapt, he is always curious about new ways to make his teams better and stay ahead of the curve.

He tried something with his current staff. It did not work. He recognized that, and he's making changes.

No idea whether or not this is the right choice, but I sure as hell wish coach Day all the luck in the world, and I'm already looking forward to September 2017.

This is embarrassing. A great defense, wasted. I would never think an Urban Meyer team could look like this.

Sheesh... I hate to say this (I mean I REALLY hate to say this), but regardless of the outcome, a tip of the cap is due. No Peppers. No Butt. And they got back into this thing. What Speight lacks in raw talent, he makes up for with guts. Now excuse me while I wash my mouth out with soap.

This is a long time comin'.

It's bittersweet to say the least.

Congratulations, big guy. You've most certainly earned it. Thank you for the memories, especially Urbz giving you a big bear hug after your defense put forth the most dominant performance I've ever seen from the Scarlet & Gray.

Michigan getting in would be a huge bummer. It would totally diminish the importance of last weekend's victory. I want that win to mean more. I want it to have dashed their hopes. If they get in anyway, they will have lost two of their last three - including one to their most bitter rival - and still backed into the playoff, with all their goals still in play. No repercussions for losing. That would suck. It would cheapen what we all saw last weekend.

As far as players acting poorly, eh... the Peppers shove is of course inexcusable. The Bock O thing was disrespectful. But so was the big banner incident of 1973. So was Marcus Hall's double bird. Many players have lost their cool throughout this rivalry, on both sides. It happens.

The post-game whine sesh, though? Yeah, I've got no time for that.

I know we all love Urban (and we damn well should for what he's done and continues to do with this program), but I think HE has to step up his game as well.

Yesterday was a gutsy win. I'll remember it for the rest of my life. But it was hardly Urban's best performance as a coach. They won't escape with victories if more of the same awaits.

The only thing I can say there is that while they will all have two losses, one will have 11 wins and a conference title. It's gotta count for something.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

Man, I see what you're saying, but that one's a hard sell.

Let's say out of Washington and Clemson, only of them loses.

And the committee puts both Ohio State and Michigan in.

They're REALLY devaluing conference titles if they do that. I think that sets a pretty odd precedent.

But if they both lose? ... Yeah, I can see it.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

One thing that also should be stated, is a team that lost two games in November really deserving? We've seen that hitting your stride at the right time is really crucial as far as the committee's thought process is concerned. Hard to say that's the case when you lose two of your last three.
