I'm really glad Burrow said what he did.
1. It makes LSU look foolish for saying it was fake cash 24 hours earlier
2. He is free from the confines and subjugation of the NCAA. I interpreted his quote as a big middle finger to the NCAA and loved it. "Yah it was real cash and there ain't a damn thing you can do to me about it". Bossman Burrow.
I guess this depends on how 2020 goes. If Fields wins the Heisman and Day hoists the trophy next year, then I'll take the 3 years of Haskins/Fields/Fields over Burrow/Burrow/???
How do I block Cincy posts?
With this he has Shaun us he bleed scarlet and grey
It seems like a good RB class. Chubs, Taylor, Swift, Etienne, and Dobbins. Even tho I'd take Dobbins all day from that group, he could slide to 5th RB taken. Next year he would go #1.
Other things on the table and within his grasp if he came back: heisman, natty, and all time tOSU rushing leader.
Still think he goes, especially based on the tweets he sent out since the loss. Really seemed like he was saying goodbye.
Cheer for Bama.
If ttun wins we will hear all about it for the next 9 months. I hope Bama rolls to a 90 point win.
F@*^ ttun. Always.
Never bet against a streak
Good read it does seem these teams are very even but we all know it's not about RBs vs RBs or Dline vs Dline but how the units match up against the other units.
Clemsons WR core may be better than ours given their studs, but I'd argue that our DBs match up better than theirs do vs ours. IMO that could neutralize the advantage Clemson has at QB since it's tough to argue that Lawrence isnt a better passer than Fields. We may end up having just as much success through the air as they do, and if that's the case, I like our chances on the ground a lot more than Clemson's.
I am curious what you are basing this on? Not saying you're wrong but the article did a pretty good job breaking things down so wondering what the counter points are.
Slow start causes blood pressure to soar >180/90, then a big second quarter ties it up 21-21 at half. Bucks come out hot in 3rd quarter and lead 34-24 at 4th quarter. Big 4th quarter finish with Chase Young ending Clemsons hope with a 4th down sack and buckeyes kneel it to victory.
Havent they done this? Compared top 4 teams by committee and by prior bcs formula? I feel like I've seen this before and it's been essentially the same 4 teams each year except maybe a few times.
You may be right, but also it may just be that Alabama and Clemson have been that much better than everyone else over the past 4 years, and that's why we've seen blow outs in the first rounds. You could then argue that 4 team playoff has been too narrow to capture teams that may have been as good as Bama/Clemson (2015 Buckeyes for instance), and that expanding the playoff could actually increase the number of quality games.

Very true, so glad we're not actually carving giant faces into a mountain side and instead making 2 minute internet posts.
I wish posts like this from fans like you were more common. Unfortunately, the worst of fans are the loudest, on both sides.
Would be extremely surprised if Leonhard ever leaves UW. Born and raised in Wisconsin. Played college ball at Wisconsin. Likely is a lifer there and I expect him to be the next head coach whenever Chryst is done.
Clemson is a great Defensive rushing team. Top 10 in the country. But tOSU has had great success running the ball vs top rushing Ds.
In 2 contests vs Wisconsin, tOSU has rushed for 268 yards in October and 173 yards in December. WI is the #8 overall rushing defense, only 0.6 yards per game worse than Clemson. That is despite giving up almost 450 yards vs tOSU.
tOSU rushed for 323 yards vs MSU, the #11 overall rushing defense.
tOSU rushed for 232 yards vs Penn state, the #10 rushing defense.
So while Clemson does have a great rushing D, tosu is the best rushing team in the country and has put up 170+ yards on 4 occasions, and 230+ yards on 3 occassions vs similarly vaulted rushing teams, the huge bulk of that on the back of Dobbins. If Clemson holds Dobbins to 100 yards of rushing that would be a huge achievement for them.
Is Dabo still their coach?
Agree on why they are confident. They've won 28 games in a row. They've lost 1 game vs ranked teams in the past 4 years, and that was to Alabama in 2017.
I totally get how they've gotten this way. Pretty sure some in Buckeye nation would be the same way if the roles were switched.
But their arrogance will be their downfall.
I think they have a better shot than most. Itll definitely be a shoot out they just cant fall behind like they did last year vs Bama. Hurts will cause big problems for that soft LSU defense.
Plus everyone is overlooking OU. Narrative is how the B12 cant win a playoff game. Burrow will win be Heisman winner.
All the ingredients of upset-soup.
I'd go LSU, Clemson, OU for passing ranks all together. I'd put tOSU ahead of OU though just because we have arguably the most depth in our receiving corps with Hill/Mack/Wilson/Victor/Ruckert all being able to make great catches. But all 3 of those teams can pick up huge gains through the air with ease.
I think the biggest difference is tOSU might be the only team with 4 DBs who can match up with anyone.
There were 3 undefeated teams last year too. Used to be a rarity for 1 or 2 teams to do that in any year. Now it seems to be becoming the new norm.

Stop watching/listening to ESPN. We know what they will be saying all day today. It doesnt matter. The committee is gonna committee and even ESPN pundits haven't figured them out. Let them spin it how they want to
If they throw up that graphic at the committee meeting theres not a reasonable person that puts LSU over tOSU.
