I think this should be one of the first questions of the committee but, not surprisingly, ESPN was silent on this (for at least the parts of the selection shows that I watched; please correct me if I missed something).

Sorry I can't give you exact clips, but Jesse Palmer and Jim Mora are your guys.  They've been addressing this, and, specifically to Ohio State, ever since the first rankings came out.

If I had to pick one over the other?  Palmer.

Day said there's a strong case that Clemson has been the best defensive team in the country over the past five years. He described Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables as "innovative." "He does a great job."

Couldn't agree more.  And let's not forget that Tim Beck was the coordinator on the other side...

Can't wait to watch our Buckeyes destroy Penn State tomorrow. 

Completely with you on that one. But I don't mind the "We Are."

Truth be told, I didn't know it was a Penn St. thing. My 2nd high school does it during their sporting events ("We Are. St. X"). So I always equated it with high school. So maybe my fondness for it is just out of familiarity.

I know, I know. Beat Penn State. LOL

Do you?

I hear you, though. That would feel mighty good.

According to OSU's website, Cooper has played three games (Nebraska, Northwestern, Rutgers).

Is that right? He got in against Rutgers? Either way, I'd love to see him on the field if he's ready to go. I bet it's killing him to not be out there.

The no injuries part makes perfect sense, but was anyone ever going to watch the Rutgers game to figure out how to scheme against us? 

Yes, hopefully these overzealous fools.

So what happened? Was it a lack of focus? Was it Rutgers finally showing some spark against the big bad Goliath? 

I had similar questions, but I really like the way Josh Perry put it in his weekly 11W segment:

My takeaway was that they wanted to get out injury free with a simple gameplan. You could sense that OSU's players were making sure they handled business with a minimal amount of risk (the goal line stand by Rutgers is proof). I think the offenses and defenses both looked vanilla. I noticed probably as much man to man coverage in the first half of the game as I've seen them play. Simple defense, no wrinkles. Probably a light gameplan overall. They were tuning up for this week for sure.
