That would be greatly appreciated! 

I have an employee who is a season ticket holder, but their internal ticket exchange is now partnered with Stub Hub, so they add fees. And, he doesn't know anyone selling tickets for that game.

Yeah, Georgia dropped games by 20+ points in back to back seasons, without nary a mention. They were a last minute TD away from dropping one by 30 in 2017, and they made the CFP. 

How you lose only matters when they want it to.

I'm guessing that is nothing more than an adjustment based on cash flow. They set the lines to effect a theoretical tie, to make betting on both teams equally attractive. They don't care who wins or loses, they get the 10% cot off the top. What they want to do is generate action, so I think that line is meant to make money pour in for Wisconsin.

So perception matters, because it's a vote based on human opinions. 

The current CFP selection process is more like figure skating than football.

First, they set the criteria, then they decide if you did or did not meet said criteria, before finally assigning style points based exclusively off of personal opinion and a sliding scale.

Look further down the thread, a MOD used the word “fucking” and currently sits at 8 upvotes and 0 downvotes. 

To clear things up, using profanity is not a violation of site rules. Directing profanity at someone in a personal attack is.

Let's not try to equate the two out of context please, in the interest of staying classy and all.

As I believe has been aptly stated above, Disney owning them is a major part of the, if not the, problem. ESPN is no longer a sports news network they are part of a corporation, a media conglomerate. They answer to a board with a bottom dollar, and the best interests of each are typically in conflict.

And, all of this anecdotal evidence supports my contention with the Worldwide Leader - its not that they dislike Ohio State, it's that they so fervently love, love, love the SEC. All things SEC. Everything SEC. All day, all the time.

And, I get it. But, just because I get doesn't mean I have to like it, nor does it mean that people who see similar slights of Ohio State could not possibly have a valid, reasonable point of view.

This just in: Justin Fields is human.

I kid, but seriously, I see it as nothing but a positive that he played a mediocre (by his standards) game, and the team rolled. There are great teachable coaching moments there. He was already diagnosing them in his mind. So, imagine how effective it will be when he sits with coaches and game film.

JF isn't even scratching at his potential. Yet. And, that should excite us all.

After reading thru the newer comments, I find it appropriate to throw this out there - people are temporary.

There was a day when life without Woody was unthinkable. Yet Ohio State survived, thrived in fact. 

If there is one area that Ohio State fans should not be too worried, it is in hiring folks. The football program, in particular, has no equal when it comes to hiring. It is, without a doubt, the best program at hiring its head man. I trust the one they've hired, and I trust the institution that will hire his boss when that day comes.
