This is misleading. I'm in Las Vegas right now. Every book I have been to has Alabama at +250 and Ohio State at +300 to win the title with every other team at least +600 or longer.
Every college football schedule has weeks where a team is likely to play flat and weeks where a team is likely to play great. This, for sure, is a flat spot for Ohio State coming off the Penn State game. It's certainly one to be worried about....I think it's the most likely L on the schedule, personally. I was at Kinnick in 2010 (in body, anyway) and it was LOUD. I trust JT more than TP....but this will be a close game. Let's Go Bucks! #4WeeksOut
McLaurin's season reception stats referenced in this article made me cringe. Honestly, I have a hard time believing any hype about our WRs this year. Maybe Ben Victor will emerge....we sure do need someone to.
Timing on the schedule matters a lot in college football....no team shows up every week and plays well. Last year, we got Penn State on the road at night.....fresh off Wisconsin on the road at night. Penn State got us in that spot coming off a bye....HUGE advantage. This year, we get them off a bye at home, and they play Michigan the week before. Bet the farm -- blood bath. GO BUCKS.
Saw the correction. Gonna have to revoke my #wellactually. Here's to Grimes and Victor balling out.
Okudah a WR? Kid is a freak at DB. He has legit chance to play as a Freshmen and worst case, starts 2 years at CB and gets drafted in the first round. But I'm not seeing the WR thing.
Incredible Situational. Add "massive favorites everyone bet the house on to demolish Florida" as yet another reason 2007 was WAY worse. Not even close.
Oct 28. Let the warlords of justice reign down on Ohio Stadium with the home squad fresh off a bye and Penn State fresh off a battle with scUM. Revenge will be sweet in that one. Still think playing two road games back to back against good teams, both off a bye and both at night was very brutal for OSU this year. Happy we didn't get penalized for that loss. Go Bucks!
I hate to be Mr. Doom and Gloom guy, but bringing this back to the real world where the committee as never shown the precedent of free thinking, going outside the box, or taking a non-conference champion....that loss by Michigan was absolutely devastating to the Buckeye playoff chances. Fair or not, we needed them to win that game. We have no linear or rational path to the playoff at this point even with 2 strong wins to end the year. Just look at US in 2014....leaping 2 teams who weren't playing on the final Saturday. The commitee isn't going to put osu in unless they win in Indy. Period. All this talk is pretty far fetched. The commitee doesn't care about "best. And we are in trouble.
Not worried about the stripes...or the stadium. Worried about Vegas still somehow favoring them in the game.
Curtis freaking Samuel for Heisman.
My God. A real treat to move this Tuesday along. Awesome!
Unreal how savage people on this site (and the internet in general) can be. Disease, sickness, addiction -- whatever you want to call it, it's life-threatening and "Cowboy The F Up" is an uninformed, lazy, disgusting retort. Think about this -- the guy has the whole world is the palm of his hand and a top 5 National coaching gig in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA and can't control himself enough to show up for work sober for a couple hours on a Sunday, doing a job that most people wish they could do instead of their boring office job? He needs help. I have struggled with this crap my whole life. I have never just had A beer or even two beers or even three beers in my entire life. I have deployed countless times in defense of this nation, and have made life and death decisions flying combat missions, the result of which saved countless lives during stressful times. I am NOT weak-minded and have achieved great success -- but I can't be in a bar, and I've accepted this. Sark must as well. Some people can't walk into a bar and have two beers and leave. It doesn't make them weak. It doesn't mean they should cowboy up. It just means they can't act like the other 99 percent of the population. Sympathetic about this? Hell yes, I am. And if you can stop in an airport terminal and have a beer before your flight and feel totally in control and not raging to drink six more, then good for you. If you don't understand that some people can not do that, then please just admit as much and don't condemn them just because it's all good in your world. It's obviously not good in Sark's right now. Get well, bud.
Hard to disagree with anything said in that segment. I wanted Cardale to start this year more than anybody because of his upside and the Zeke factor when Cardale is the starter -- but he hasn't been good this year...yet. It's just that simple. He has missed on a couple simple reads, touch throws, deep balls, and short throws...all of which have stopped otherwise good drives in the red zone. Even his throw to Mike Thomas a couple weeks ago when Thomas scored when the D blitzed his cover corner was woefully underthrown and Thomas just made a play. Cowherd says he looks undraftable, and compared to his draft upside 9 months ago, it's hard to argue otherwise really. I'm not a huge fan of either guy, but Klatt has never come at the Buckeyes with anything other than objectivity, and he makes some factual, statistically based comments here about this offense with Jones at the helm. Something isn't right. I'm not a "put it on the QB" type of guy, and we've seen Cardale's upside, but he has to play a lot better. Plain and simple. It's okay to say that without being a bad fan.
I'm a Cardale fan, wanted him to get the start this year....but he was terrible yesterday. I know he is 8-0 and I know we won the game, but both Cardale and his father Tyvis were plain bad yesterday. And that can't happen to beat the good teams. Hell, it almost can't happen to beat Indiana.
I support Urban. I support Cardale. I support the Ohio State Buckeyes. Fans pecking at the coach's decision here is getting a little bit chippy and personally, I hate seeing it. Cardale is the starter, so we support the team with Cardale at the helm. If JT was the starter, we would do the same. C'mon Buckeye Nation. Let's get our act together.
All hail the Iron King.
Is it just me or was James Clark running wide open a lot in all of these fall camp highlights and in Scarlet and Gray days? Can't wait to see him out there tonight!
