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.

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.

Nothing left to play for? Have you noticed how terrible this conference is? Rutgers has plenty to play for, and juicy home games on the horizon.

I truly believe that it's, at least in part, because Johnny Manziel is white. And I'm not some bitter man playing the race card, it's just what I truly believe.

I'll never forget when Pryor, Herron and the others were marched out in front of the media that day as if they'd all murdered infant children. Pryor wasn't a bad egg, but he was prone to saying foolish things. Writers ate this incident up and spun it as his defining character flaw in a narrative that had several small ones before it. It's all as nonsensical to me today as it was then.

But everyone, for some reason, rallies to Manziel's cause.

I know somebody posted a photo of Deathstroke already, but I was set on doing it, so here it is. Welcome to the family, Slade.

I don't subscribe to the "Sleepwalking" excuse. This team is solid, and I'm sure they'll have a nice season, and get much better as it moves along. But I don't see the ceiling for this team going any higher than the Sweet Sixteen. The lack of legitimate scoring threats is periodically going to bite this team.

I don't know why these tweets are constantly highlighted on this site, or anywhere else. A few low-life morons on Twitter do not comprise the majority of the Ohio State fanbase. Amplifying the voices of these lunatics only paints an inaccurate depiction of what our fanbase is actually like. This constant "LOOK AT THESE DUMB PEOPLE LET'S GO TAKE THE FIGHT TO THEM SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!" tactic serves nobody. Leave these people to their complete and utterly miserable existence. Twitter already gives them a voice that they in no way deserve. Don't make it any louder. No one gives a crap what they have to say.

A one-loss Big Ten team is going to have a hard time getting invited to the dance, regardless of the variables. In that regard we agree. A one-loss Big Ten team, in my eyes, will have performed on the field. The committee will see what it wants to see. My point is that, at this juncture, I've lost a lot of faith in the idea that conference bowl records play a big hand in swaying opinion. I firmly believe that if the B1G won every bowl game it played this post-season, we would be hearing the same crap we always hear next season.

Comment 03 Jan 2014

I still think it comes down to performing on the field, now more than ever. Ohio State didn't play for a title this year because they lost to Michigan State. It's that simple. It wasn't the "narrative" that sealed the deal, or the conference not holding up its end of the supposed bargain. And, correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't playoff matchups and seeding be determined before the Rose Bowl would be played anyway?

Comment 03 Jan 2014

No one is looking at Michigan State's victory in the Rose Bowl and thinking "Oh, look, Ohio State's actually pretty good!" This is all in our heads. Ohio State - or any team, really - doesn't need other teams to win to make itself feel better about its "perception." You want to improve your "image," whatever that's worth, you win.

Comment 03 Jan 2014

I have to disagree with all of this, my good sir.

You're viewing this almost exclusively through the goggles of B1G/conference perception, which, outside of having to watch grown men yell at each other on television about it, is more or less meaningless. Win or lose, network blowhards or going to say the same crap at the start of next season anyway. Even if the B1G won all of its games this post-season, they'd still bring out the same stale criticisms of the conference that they do every season.

And I simply refuse to let that get me down. I want Ohio State to win this game because I want to see my boys end a terrific season on a high note. A win in an Orange Bowl isn't going to change anyone's mind about anything. That's not why I'm watching this game. I refuse to watch it as the irate, agitated fan that ESPN wants me to be, chasing thin, imagined concepts of heightened "perception" that will never come to fruition anyway. I'm watching this game as an Ohio State fan, wanting to see Hyde roll one more time, wanting to see Shazier get what might be his last strip sack or TFL as a Buckeye, and wanting to see my team get a win against a quality opponent and end this season right.
