Does it really matter? It's frickin early October. Who cares where teams are ranked? It's not like they're picking the playoff tomorrow. It'll work itself out in the end, like it always does. ESPN is just filling time slots.
No player deserves hate. It doesn't matter how shitty they play.
I bet most of these idiots just became "fans" last year.
I don't consider them part of buckeye nation. They're fake fans. Real buckeye fans don't say dumb shit like this. That goes for both the idiots on Twitter and in the chat.
It's cause people are so immature and overreact to everything that happens during the game. If you can't engage in intelligent conversation, you should be banned forever. I can't stand it when people freak out every time something goes wrong during the game. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Chill out.
Rankings don't matter this early. An undefeated power 5 team will always make the playoff. It doesn't matter if OSU is #1, #5, or unranked right now.
I blame Draft Kings for the longer games. I think they get a commercial in every break. Not sure what's more annoying, the Draft Kings commercials this year or that Fall Out Boy song from last year.
They use instant replay way too much. I've seen countless times where a call on the field was obviously correct and they still spent 3-4 minutes reviewing it. They should change that rule so only turnovers and touchdowns get reviewed.
It's such a waste of time and energy getting worked up over predictions, especially in September or October. At the end of the day, all that matters is winning each game. It wouldn't even matter if OSU was currently unranked because if they win out there's no question they'll be in the final 4. The rankings right now are useless and really just serve as time fillers for the media. If we didn't have rankings, what would there be to talk about on college football live?
What I don't understand is why they're so obsessed with showing the percentage chance a team has to win according to their FPI. Do people really care about that stuff? Everyone knows those percentages don't mean anything.
It's cause of all those ranked teams they have to play....oh wait
Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Now I know how FSU felt last year. They really have to clean up the turnovers. You can only play with fire for so long. On the bright side though, the D has been incredible.
He probably would've been suspended if the Brady suspension didn't get overturned. I think there's pressure on the NFL right now to not levy too harsh of punishments.
You deserve to lose when you have the ball on the 35 with 40 seconds to go and decide to take a knee and go to OT. Their coach is an idiot. Mind-boggling decision.
This is why he's an elite coach
I learned something last year Greg. It's that every conference has 1 or 2 elite teams that can play with anyone. Ranking the conferences is just a waste of time since the top teams are all about the same. Are you really going to penalize an elite team just cause they happen to be in a slightly lesser conference? It doesn't mean they're a lesser team.
I agree. So much better than AT&T stadium. I really wish they'd stop playing games there. It's overused IMO.
I don't think it means anything. They dominated the first half and then just sleepwalked the second half. I wouldn't put too much stock into what happens in week 1. TCU might turn out to be fantastic even though they struggled to beat a middle of the pack B1G team.
They'd be winning this game if they just had a competent offense.
Tough call there for Minny.
Thanks for the info.
How are you supposed to know if you have a student ticket? Would it blatantly say "Student Ticket" right on the ticket? Is section 29 a part of the student section?
Fisherman's friend throat lozenges. They're pretty strong and have always cleared my sinuses.
Agree with you on the weather. I wish some, but not all, non-conference games would be played in November. They should space them out, with one game each month.
