I have MSU over Oregon, Wisky over the Criminals and the Wildcats over the Utes. Plus our big 3, that means the BIG goes 6-3.
You do realize BIG is with FOX right? Yes, they get money from some BIG games but it pales in comparison to what they get from the SEC network and all the major head to head conference games; including the championship game last night. They have a clear financial interest in the SEC. The fact you can't even wrap your head around that argument is telling.
Kirk Herbstreit isn't a Buckeye, he is an employee of ESPN first and foremost. This has nothing to do with being objective, but everything to do with who pays him. #fakebuckeye
Your argument about FOX and Leinart is a false equivalency. Oklahoma has a conference championship and is 11-1. They are a reasonable candidate to get in, whereas Georgia has 2 losses (one by 20 points) and no conference title. Also, FOX holds contracts with both the Big 12 and the Big Ten, so they want either one of those teams in. This isn't that hard to figure out dude; life must be pretty hard for you.
Seriously dude it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that ESPN is biased towards their properties and none being more lucrative than the SEC. The over-under for your IQ is about what the Buckeyes scored yesterday.
Seriously though, how many people would pick west virginia or washington to beat tOSU? I know the loss to purdue was bad and all, but if you had to bet the mortage, I'd wager a solid majority of college football fans would pick us in those matchups. I think we should have been one or two spots higher
While the defense could return everyone, the offense is the exact opposite. we could lose almost every starter on offense,
Haskins, Weber, Prince, Knox, Jordan, Pridgeon, Dixon, Campbell, Mclaurin will all most likely be gone. Victor, Mack, Hill, will all be eligible as well.
It does not concern you that Michigan beat PSU 42-7 and we beat them 27-26?
Lebron should make sure to give a pair to Nick Bosa, they both sold out Ohio sports teams for more money. ;)
"made by Children in Laos" I love your comments Braden / Andrew Jackson
This is a new take, he left because Urban didn't want to field questions about his recovery?....... brilliant insight /s
Ya! and 'Nick didn't come here to play school!' We all made fun of Cardale but didn't he graduate?
Both Know and Pridgeon have been horrendous in the run-game (while pretty decent in pass pro). I would love to see both Meyers and Davis start at the Guards, I can't imagine them doing worse in the run game, and I think its very likely they will do better.
I dont think there were too many people saying we had a lot of depth, but more that the front line talent of Bosa, Young and Jones was a potent combination. I think that proved correct for a couple weeks.
I don't like this decision at all, it's not that I disagree with him putting money and his health first, he has millions of dollars on the line and I get that.
But why not continue to rehab and if tOSU makes the playoffs which it is currently projected to do, contribute to winning a national title? Imagine if we do win the natty and he is healthy in January / February and sitting at home watching the bucks raise the national championship trophy and he misses out on that opportunity? I feel if I were in his shoes I would thoroughly regret that decision. There is no harm in postponing this decision until a later date when he was fully healthy or near healthy. It seems very premature.
On a more minor note, by having the possibility of getting Bosa back, it would have helped us in the eyes of the committee.
Ya but he wouldnt be coming back for the playoff either lol
Thanks for the info Rockford, makes me feel better about it.
I think Purdue is a trap game, right before a bye week. The team is banged up and clearly not playing their best football. Purdue is hungry and they get us at home and at night. Passing teams don't travel as well. Do not sleep on Jeff Brohm!
maybe I'm being cynical here, but this seems to be a sly attempt to try and get good with women after the whole Zach Smith saga.
the dude is even bragging about it on twitter. Makes your comments look stupid.
Not sure I have ever seen our Dbs play so consistantly poorly; out of position, missing reads, bad angles and excessive PI penalties. Still missing Kerry Coombs.
Don't forget 13' man we were ranked like 89th in past defense that year, and that was with coach Coombs! Don't freak out just yet brother, we still got time to get better.
ugh I cant believe you posted a hayden christianisn gif, I hate that guy.
^was that suppose to be a joke? lol Its so bad its kind've funny.
To be fair, Zach Smith's role as receiver coach does not exactly fall under the realm of 'low-level.' Within the athletic department, he was fairly high ranked and high paid.
Tyreke looks a lot like Jaylin holmes out there, which is impressive for a true freshman.
