This increases the chances that the Bengals keep the first pick. If Tua had stayed at Bama, more teams would have considered trading up for Burrow. Now they may wait a little bit to draft Tua.
Especially as a running back, where the "tread on the tires" will only last so long, this makes perfect sense for him. He is a top 6 Buckeye running back of all time, a list that includes four Heisman trophy winners (Janowicz, Cassady, Griffin, George, and then also Elliott). #RBU
I think Wisconsin blitzed differently than in the regular season game calling for blitz pickup by Dobbins who is just a little too undersized, though does a decent job.
Unless they get blown out, I don't think any team inside the top 8 (outside of Utah) should drop out of the top 8 if they lose in their conference championship game. Adding a loss via an extra game shouldn't be held against a team compared to those outside the top 8.
No need to add salt because it's been marinated in Wolverine tears.
Our defense last year was historically bad. LSU's defense this year, while bad, isn't atrocious.
Even worse. I think I was looking at an old schedule. Damn google.
I'm sure the quality of our next opponent made it easier to just let it be and accept the NCAA ruling.
(edit and I'm highly confident I am not the same person as Keith...)
Oops. UGA has wins over 3 ranked teams now (Florida, ND, and App State; not Auburn). Even so, I wouldn't put UGA above Penn State.
Georgia being ahead of Penn State only makes sense to me if you consider the wins Auburn and Florida far, far superior to wins over TTUN and Iowa. That's the only way because a road loss to Minnesota is far, far superior than a home loss to South Carolina.
And thus Georgia does not belong in the top 4. You either put Minnesota in the 4 spot or you put Oregon. Neither Georgia nor Alabama belong there.
The #1 seed gets to choose which location it plays (between Atlanta and Glendale). It is not decided for them.
Wake Forest @ Clemson. Wake Forest is coming off of its first loss of the season to Virginia Tech and will likely be unranked, but is still probably the most threatening team Clemson will face the rest of the season.
Wake Forest has two losses. They lost to Louisville on October 12th.
I'd imagine a flight from Columbus to LA would be in the $400-$700 range or potentially more. Hopefully it is not considered more. Either way, this is such a stupid situation.
Definitely a biased observer here, but how is the 2015 Sugar Bowl not on the list? Or what about the 1997 Rose Bowl between Ohio State and Arizona State?
A sub 7 yard per attempt (and sub 10 yard per completion) isn't all that great + no offensive TDs at all = a struggle.
Amen to this.
Rooting for a blowout one way or the other in this week's edition of the Game of the Century; this would increase the likelihood of only one SEC team getting into the playoff, especially if the winner of this game wins the SEC.
Rooting for the Demon Deacons of course. And I think playing a one-loss Minnesota team (their loss to PSU) in the B1G championship game would be better than getting a re-match with Wisconsin.
No offense to Chuganov, but imagine how dynamic our offense would be if we had a good enough backup QB (like a Cardale Jones) where we could just let Justin Fields go to town. I feel we limit his potential rushing production in particular for that reason.
Hence why the New Orleans Buckeyes are my favorite NFL team. They should trade Kamara for Zeke. Also, they should draft Fuller this spring to fill out their Buckeye secondary.
49ers should trade the bank to go get him and pair him with Smaller Bear.
How did the viewership compare with the ALCS?
I cannot confirm, but I'd imagine that would be highly likely.
Curious how his Greco-Roman style will translate to collegiate folk-style. I could see him being someone that tries to do suplexes more so than shooting at the legs.
Any idea on how it translates to wrestling on the mat in the up or down position?
