Yeah maybe they are assigned to one of those divisions for oversight or point person and then bring the case to the full committee for final review. They don't provide much information but something along those lines would make sense.
Came across this on my social media this morning....love it! Thanks for sharing.
I wouldn't be surprised if LSU moves up to the #1 spot nor be upset about it because we have a chance to boost our wins and resume while not so much for them. Sure LSU has the best win (and perhaps better wins) but OSU still looks like the best team and statistically is the best team.
The committee has always had the mantra of putting the best teams in the final 4 and ranking them accordingly, not the team with the best wins or most accomplished. Although those often fall hand in hand. This will test this year's committee on what they value more. Last week they felt OSU was without a doubt the best team and after this week nothing should change there which makes the argument for OSU to remain #1.
There is certainly a case for either one to be #1. At this point I don't really care because as long as we keep winning we will be in the playoff. It only really matters at the end of the season in terms of match ups. I would much rather play Oregon, Big 12 winner or Bama than Clemson in the first round.
That’s honestly a good question and didn’t think much of it at the time. The list is taken directly from the NCAA’s website and I just double checked and my list matches theirs. Not sure why they are listed that way.
I love Coach Day, he has the most cool, calm collected demeanor and yet is ultra aggressive and out for blood all at the same time.
Two thoughts: 1. Some might be using "appeal" as in appealing to the NCAA for a decision, not literally appealing an already made decision which I think is most likely. 2. The loan was a high enough $ amount to warrant a 4 game suspension per NCAA guidelines and they are appealing for a lesser suspension. But I don't think anyone outside of the university truly knows for #2 to be the case.
I believe he said he met the family friend before enrolling at OSU and took the loan out in late 2018. But I could be remembering wrong.
The NCAA and their “rules” are a bunch of BS. If all the reporting is true that it wasn’t an agent and he has documentation of paying back then I believe the NCAA will agree to a 1 or 2 game suspension based on precedent.
Hopefully that’s the case and we can move on from this. The silver lining in this scenario is missing the Maryland and possibly Rutgers games is really only like missing a few quarters. Let’s be honest the starters aren’t playing a whole lot in these games. Here’s to hoping the NCAA doesn’t drag this out and is sensible with the punishment but I know that’s asking a lot these days.
I have to agree with the point that the atmosphere and electricity in the stadium is undeniably better during night games than at noon. The tailgating experience is much better too in my opinion. It just creates a different buzz. It would be interesting to see if there is an actual difference in decibel ratings during noon vs night games to measure the noise level. When I was a student night games were by far the best and most fun.
Some people have said, yeah but the atmosphere during The Game is crazy loud and is almost always a noon game. To me that's an unfair comparison, The Game could be played at any hour of the day and it would be crazy and loud. It's The Game after all.
Sure viewership and ratings will always follow the Buckeyes. Some people prefer noon games because it fits well with their Saturday schedule or for other reasons. But I still agree that the atmosphere in the shoe at night is unmatched by a noon game.
Side note: 3:30 games are great too especially late in the season because they end under the lights. You get the best of noon and night games in one.
I really hope that this actually happens. I have a group of friends out here in San Diego that went to different schools and we just started planning trips to games at our respective "home" stadiums. Two of them are Bulldogs so we will have to mark this one on the calendar for when it rolls around!
Noon games have been good to Ohio State, but not a huge fan personally since I live on the west coast. Every once in awhile it is nice not arriving at a bar by 8:30am haha.
Can you imagine the hype video for this....Winter is Coming.
Ok ok, reviewing again and I had two teams at number 7 so E was left off...putting E at 7 and therefore bumping everyone down one.
Edit...found a mistake in all my scribbles and made the correction.
This is definitely a tough task and I even went back and moved teams around a couple of times. I could also see how once in a room my rankings could change again after hearing opinions from others. At some point you have to go with what you've got, so here it is:
Hopefully no typos in transferring to my comment. Now to stop looking at the stats before changing them again. Teams 15 - 25 get tough and it things get fuzzy between 1 and 2 loss teams and deciding what matters most i.e. Beaten percentage vs scoring margin vs OFF/DEF production.
Every day since last Monday I have learned something new about the escrow process and buying a home (condo) in California. Today was learning about "walls-in" insurance. Definitely an educational and tedious process.
After this weekend's performance, what's your take on Dobbins vs Taylor? Is Dobbins the best back in the country?
I’m not sure I agree with your logic on the passing game. It affects both passing games and ours is clearly better. The way I see it the rain could take ours from great to good and theirs from good to a bad. Yes, it’s a bigger part of our game but unless it’s really windy I don’t think rain takes away from ours as much as it does theirs. It makes an already one dimensional Wisky even more one dimensional.
Yeah this is a double edge sword. You have the example of Fickell knowing his scheme and players, then you have 2018 and now you have the opposite again where I think Coach Day really trusts the defensive coaches.It blows my mind the difference between last year's defense and this year's.
I could see this one going similar to the MSU game. The game starts out close but eventually the Buckeyes win fairly comfortably 34 - 17 good guys.
LMAO to the first comment in the thread "Quit drinking and go to bed" ....that gave me a good laugh!
EDIT: there are some really good ones calling out the OP. Worth scrolling through for the laughs.
Happy spouse = happy house.....not that I am saying this is the best advice but throwing it out there haha
This is also a really good tactic to use at work to avoid breakdown in communication.
My question is in regards to Wisconsin's defensive depth. They rank #1 in many of the defensive stats and everyone seems to agree that their defense is legit. As we saw with a good MSU defense, the Buckeyes offense was able to wear them down as the game went on partly because they lacked depth and couldn't keep guys fresh. I think that is a strength of our defense, we can rotate guys in without a drop off in talent/production.
How does the Wisconsin defense compare? Do they have the depth to keep their guys fresh for 4 quarters, or will the explosive Buckeye offense wear them down like they did with Sparty?
