8 is fine if you take the Power 5 Champs and 3 wild card teams. Otherwise it does devalue the regular season and conference championships.

Comment 06 Dec 2016

I know I'll catch some heat over this opinion:

I am one of those who do believe that if you can't win your league then you shouldn't be in the CFP. It's not even like OSU finished second in the league - couldn't make the League Championship game. The OOC PSU loss to Pitt is not nearly egregious as some folks make it out to be. Pitt finished 8-4 and beat #2 Clemson as well as #5 PSU. They are no cupcake, so I would have had no problems with PSU supplanting us in the final CFP rankings. <<Pains me saying that more than I thought it would!>>

Take the Power 5 League Champs + 3 wild card teams and you can settle this without much discussion.

I guess my Top 3 List of Alt Unis would be:

#3 - 2015 Black Ensemble

#2 - 2009 White Ensemble

#1 - 2011 Helmet only (if you paired this with the 2010 Uniform Totally Bad!)

I guess I'll say it since no one else has...

<<begin sarcasm>>

Fire Tim Beck!

I guess he is now our new whipping post. I've got to believe that Luke Fickell is relieved.

<<end sarcasm>>

Is it just me are some of the "+" and "-" in the stat columns switched? For instance Points Against for VaTech - if you give up 21 points more than last year, shouldn't be "+21" and not "-21"?

It's probably just me. I had/problems with the +/- on point spreads as well.

Here's the thing, never put your team into a position where someone else controls your fate.

This happens ALL of the time everywhere in all leagues. Heck, didn't one of our NBA teams tank to get the number one pick.

If it is within the rules then quit complaining. If it is something that needs to be banned then ban it. Until it is banned suck it up!

Not going to lie...big plastic cowboys a little bit creepy!

Love the word "commentariat"...+1 for you good sir!

Comment 11 Aug 2015

I think the most I'd pay is $0.

55" HD TV, comfy chair, GREAT food and family. Who'd want to go watch it in person?

Crappy parking, obnoxious opposition fans, sky high concessions....bah.

Besides that, it is generally on the day I celebrate Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family.

To be perfectly truthful I have no problem with  ESPN hyping the SEC I mean they own the SEC Network. What would you expect?

My biggest problem is that there isn't a single ESPN employee who will admit that they have anything other than impartiality when on the air. No one will trash the SEC because they own the channel and that would be self defeating (i.e. cost them viewers = $'s). But no one will stand up and admit that...not one.

Is it a good thing to split time with the "ones"? Who ever ends up being the starter is losing out on 50% (or whatever split time means) of his reps with the first teamers. To me that is valuable time lost to someone who is going to be the back-up.

I suppose it is entirely possible that JT is not fully healthy and they need 12-Guage ready to start the season until JT's ankle is 100%...pure speculation on my part.

The coaches know WAY (I can't put enough emphasis on that word) more than I do, but it is something I would ask UFM if I saw him.

I am up for different uniforms as long as they stay true to OSU colors. Black is an accent color on our uniforms. Our colors are not scarlet, grey, and black. Just scarlet and grey....jmho.

As a former coach of my daughters teams from U8 thru middle school, my best tips are these:

1) Always make it as fun as possible. At this age this is the most important, as it will keep them interested as they get older.

2) Fundamentals are all you are after. Dribble, Pass, and Kick. I always told my team parents that if I could see at least one "good" pass per half it was a good game.

3) Good half-time and after game snacks. Makes the victories that much sweeter and the defeats a lot easier to take.

4) Always be positive and up beat when talking to the team. Not only will the kids respond well you'll build up some equity with the parents as well.

I'm all-in for an eight team playoff. Give me the five Power-5 Champs and three Wildcard teams. I also want it so that of the three Wildcard teams there can be no more than one from any single conference.
