You're a disappointed, annoyed Ohio State fan. You just watched your favorite team manage to hang on and beat a 2-6 Nebraska squad by five points at home after having two weeks to prepare. The Buckeyes are technically not out of the College Football Playoff hunt, but that would require winning out and looking better than they have all season doing it.

Do you A) root for the playoffs anyway, because that's the Urban Meyer Expectation (tm) and they should be in it to win it every season, B) push your hopes down into the ground and just hope they win a game or two before everything goes crazy at the end of the year, or C) look good for a few weeks, beat Michigan, and get some momentum going into a probable Rose/Holiday(ish) bowl?

This week on the Dubcast, we're picking C. Ohio State simply isn't a playoff team right now, but that doesn't mean they can't have a kickass ending to the 2018 season. Giddyup.

Also, of course, Ask Us Anything (which you can do via e-mail or Twitter) rolls down the pike, and if you enjoyed our show, please check us out on Google Podcasts and/or rate and subscribe on iTunes!

0:00 Nebraska was... eugh. But just mostly eugh. Not entirely eugh!

19:39 The Big Ten as a whole has gotten a lot more interesting over the course of the season, but Michigan in particular is making moves.

34:24 Ask Us Anything wants to know about Halloween candy and times Ohio State has outperformed expectations.

And that'll do it! Thanks to Travis for our logo, thanks to you for listening and checking out our Dry Goods store (with new stuff coming soon!) and we'll see you next week!
