I am a die hard NCAA tourney basketball fan, and I was elated when football went to a selection committee.

There were many years I did not agree with the #1 seeds, or teams left out, or where and how my team was seeded, but I also knew that the people doing the selecting and seeding knew a lot more about ALL the teams than I did. 

I also appreciated the fact these men had to be in the same room listening to each other's arguments. That meant stupid people couldn't take their ballot in the corner secretly vote a team they hated down far below where they should be... skewing results (See both the AP and coaches polls each week for the last 60 years)...

With all that said... and one more thing... I think PSU was playing better football than OSU at the end of the year but that isn't the only requirement...   A Committee fully discussing which teams got in and how they were seeded is always going to carry a lot more weight than individual opinions, including mine.

USF is a good non power job.. similar to Houston... but I don't see Schiano taking it... Which I would love if he did.. USF defense was awful under Taggart...

There will be more power 5 jobs open up... Some guys get let go, because their school  finds out someone is available... So with Schiano out there.. a school will get rid of struggling coach a year early for the chance to get Schiano..

We have had two really good free throw shooting games... FAU and UVA... the last two... THis gives me some hope..  

Tate made 4 free throws in a row tonight... That has to be a record for him at OSU... 

We are going to enter the top 300 in FT% if this keeps up... At least we might surrender 14th place in the big ten in FT%

Comment 06 Dec 2016

We have an immature team.  I was hoping they would come out after the Virginia game and put forth the same effort... But immature teams can get up for big games then they lose focus... THis same team beat Kentucky last year... 

I don't see leadership,...  Loving doesn't want to Lead,,, Tate who hustles is not mature, Lyle says the right things but can't really follow through on what a leader should do... 

Im just trying to be patient, the coaches may get someone to step up.... The Free Throws looked good... It might help us enter the top 300 in FT% and get out of 14th place in the BIG... 

I think we beat uconn.... But I would not watch the UCLA game if this one upset you... 

I like KBD, but for some reason we seem out of sync when he plays... I don't see him as much different than loving... Tall good offense but too slow on defense..

Be careful what you wish for...   Those dogs might bite...  I want Bama... kind of like 2k14... this Bama team is primed for an upset... I hope they beat washington by 70... but I really do think the Huskies will take them down... And this Washington team is not the oregon team we played in 2k14, I think this washignton team is more stoudt, so we wont run through them.

Divisions, are a marketing ploy for getting more teams into 'better bowls' 

... finishing in 2nd place in X Division sure sounds better than finishing 5th or even possibly 6th in the conference...

Comment 05 Dec 2016

Just want to thank the Committee for encouraging more teams to schedule tougher OOC, that is something I was hoping the Playoff would do... If only there was a more impactful way to punish the FCS scheduling...    I also will say I think PSU is playing the best all around football right now... But that doesn't always continue into the second season.   I hate PSU but heard Franklin talk about playoffs and it made me rethink my feelings about him.. not so much... PSU... but he said different things than I expected.

Couple of thoughts about the playoff...

1. Academics.. do those only impact the Champ game and not the playoff game (Dec 31)?

2. Want to live in the moment. Being in the playoff is a big deal, but I do wonder how much more focused practices are for a Champ type game versus a Rose Bowl?  Very valuable for a young team in future.. past the playoffs...

3. Between Clemson and OSU, which team if not both, will spend too much time prepping for Bama, because that will show up on the field... I know Urban said all hands on deck for this game... but you have to say that... 

4. Washington is the team I would want to play least in the first round, way too much time to prep for a team people really don't know much about, or how tested it really is... and ... a group of 100 adolescents that are going to be feeling highly motivated due to the disrespect they are about to hear for the next 26 days.   I thought Bama in the first round for OSU would be better... Longer time to prepare and solely focused on Bama.

how about those Free Throws!!!!   That was a great thing to see..

Lyle played like Jekyll and Hyde... I thought for the first 16 minutes of the first half he was driving and imposing his will... Then it was like he flipped a switch and wanted to play like a one handed  Magic Johnson in a cast. 

I will say this... and I need to see this team grow from this game, play with the same focus and execution in the upcoming games and beat UConn at home(which we should)... but maybe the coaching on the offensive and defensive sides is really coming together...

I'm trying to temper my excitement.. but it is hard not to be excited about this season for the first time since opening game tipoff.

I really like the thought of Michigan fans thinking that the refs, the big ten, and possibly the NCAA are against them.  No one wants to see them win...

The end of the Iowa game, where the refs let an Iowa player kick the ball..  was illegal, that should have been a dead ball... and then they give iowa 3 pts... after the ball is kicked out of bounds..  Michigan has been getting the short end of the stick with the refs...  That is undisputed... I can't wait to see how the refs conspire to beat them in the bowl game.

Forcing someone to stay at a job under those pretenses can yield unwanted results...  Generally speaking a head coach wants the best for his assistants... and Would allow someone to leave so as not to scare away other higher Quality guys.   I am sure Urban would mention to other candidates that Schiano was a special case(being a former NFL head coach), and based on all the feedback decided to enter the draft early based on where he was going to get drafted...    I do like Urban's 2 year rule.. but I don't think that should be a hard line case for everyone...

Ill disagree with this... Lattimore is quite possibly the best Cover corner I have seen at Ohio State... Including Springs, and Gamble... 

Ill tip my hat to Schiano and Hair on fire as well.. .This is the best secondary Ohio State has had since 1996, and I will take this one over 1996.  and I loved 1996 Secondary...

Schiana deserves consideration for Asst. Coach of the year in College football.  We will miss him as much as we missed Herman... He simply does not get enough credit for the Job he has done.  He took the weakest unit on this team going into the season and made them the best unit in the Nation...

Most entertaining 'GAME' I have seen in the series, well, except for 2002 and Will Allen's game saving int.   The 2013 game was entertaining but with such a lack of defense for both teams I cant call it Most entertaining..

I know it is way too soon to bring up a negative opinion, with emotions running high... as they should be.. ttun just suffered one of the worst ways to lose a game... That is hard to not just want to put on a loop and play 24 hours a day till the Playoffs...

but...

<I realize I run this risk of getting banned for this>   That was not a well coached game by either team... Both coaches seemed to be as nervous as John Cooper on the sidelines and making calls that made less sense than sleeping on a teenage boys bedroom floor.

I also thought the execution was less than exact by both teams.. some of it was forced by the other team... but some of it was not...

Lots of excitement and drama in this game, but it was not as 'Good' as the 2k6 game.  That game was coached and executed at a higher level.  But OSU was just much better in that game so it wasn't as close as the final score showed...

Ok... Sorry... I deserve what I am about to receive...

On a side note.. I was kind of disappointed harbaugh didn't take his shirt off during one of his rants and running around swinging it like a drunk groomsmen at a wedding reception... because that is how I envision he runs his practices...

The other thing I would have liked to have seen is harbaugh with a milk mustache while complaining about the refs in the post game presser...  

If there is one thing to learn from Jimbo... don't say anything when your thinking only with emotions...  take some time to watch some film...

Thinking of Dantonio and Tressel relationship, reminded  me of those 2k2 and 2k3 defenses.   Also 2k1, the 2k1 defense crushed people with their team hitting.  I had not seen anything like that from a total team perspective at Ohio State in a very long time... it was very promising during a pedestrian-plus season.  

Greg Schiano has a chance to be the greatest def asst coach I've seen in my lifetime at Ohio state.  Right now that is still Dantonio.  I dread to think how 2012-2013-bad this defense would be without him.    

On the offensive side, tom Herman narrowly beats out Walt Harris.  Tom had his setbacks and is luckily remembered for the 3 games that were almost half as good as the 2k2 season.    Walt Harris only had 3 complaints from fans ... a Michigan game, a bowl game  and when he left.  

Feeling thankful. 

Make no mistake about Schiano he is up there, he took what looked like our weakest unit and has made it the strength of this team.   I truly believe Schiano is to Malik Hooker , what Herman was to 2k14 Barrett and Jones.   And why I am nervous about Schiano leaving if what I think happens over the next 7 weeks is about to happen.

That would be crazy. I was at the USf game where navy got manhandled. USf had to play at temple, which was their loss. 

The conf champ stuff has a lot of hidden things that don't always tell the whole story... Ive been saying that long before this year and psu.   There was a year in the 90''s where Florida beat the snot out of Tennessee but lost to bama and lsu. Tennessee got to play ole miss and and another bad team.  Tennessee had 1 conf loss and uf 2. Ut went to champ game.   That's the kind of crap I don't like.  Only division games should count. Compare apples to apples. Use overall conf as tie breaker
