This team has been juggernaut quality all year, and while I love the confidence in saying why do PSU and UM have to be 4th quarter games, but let's not get too cocky. If they do put the games away by the 4th awesome. But hopefully the success doesn't get to the teams heads too much.
Going into the 4th it looked like there was no doubt U Ass would cover, but they completely collapsed in the 4th. When they simply didn't field a 4th quarter kickoff and NW recovered I thought my bet was down the drain.
Closer than I thought, but thanks UMass for not sucking quite enough to lose the spread. Whoo that was close.
You certainly are correct, and at the end of the day NW may cover. But I was wondering aloud if there has ever been a spread that high between two 1 win FBS teams this late in the season.
You are right UMass is awful.
In this case the Buckeyes can definitely overlook their opponent. Ohio State would win this game even if the were blindfolded.
Absolutely not. The B1G is a midwest conference, and even adding Rutgers and Maryland was a stretch, but at least it all still connects. It woud suck to be one of those conferences that just starts adding pieces that have no place, and two teams way down in Florida doesn't fit the culture or geography of the B1G.
USF? That game would be a lame non conference, if they absolutely had to add a non midwest/border state, it would only be acceptable if it was a big time program, not a directional school.
77-7. Rutgers gets a freak play touchdown to go up 7-0, then Ohio State scores 77 unanswered points and wins by 10 td's.
Plus do we really want a guy named GRRRRINCH on our staff?

I know due to double standards this isn't the case, but if a loss to Illinois on a last second FG at Illinois eliminates Wisconsin even if they win out, then surely the same rule applies to Georgia if they win out. Isn't a home loss to South Carolina, a middling average team similar to a loss to also middling average Illinois on the road?
Yeah it's not the sexiest city that's for sure.
Did anyone else see or hear about the crazy finish in the Tulsa-SMU game? SMU scored 3 td's in their final 3 possessions to send it to OT. Each drive was 70 yards or more. Ended up winning in triple OT. I love crazy finishes like that. And SMU is still undefeated and ranked for the first time since the 80's.
As for us, I think we are a-ok. MSU came to play, it took our offense a while to handle their D, and in the end, aside from a couple moments, our D played stellar and our offense just has too many explosive playmakers to be kept down forever. Maybe not quite as impressive as we all hoped for, but still very balanced and complete. Still gashed the nations #1 rush D and covered the spread. Next game will be a walk in the park.
Almost anywhere is better then Chick-Fil-A. Their original chicken sandwich is bland, dry and I have to slather a ton of mayo on it just to eat it. I've never understood what people love about it. Their waffle fries are good, but the chicken sandwich isn't good at all. Popeyes for the win.
