Any fan who lived through the Cooper years would never offer a guarantee.  I feel pretty confident that we have the better team, but despite our recent dominance in The Game, it's still a rivalry game and anything can happen.  Also throw in the fact that there's snow in the forecast for Ann Arbor and we've historically played crappy in bad weather, makes things even more unpredictable.

No offense but Darnold has one  of those faces you’d just like to punch for no reason.

This.  Ok, now I know it's not just me.

I copied JT's stats, threw out the high and the low and took the average, and this is what I got.  I was going to guess this, but you beat me to it.  Just curious if you did that too or if you just randomly picked this number.

Still, it's impressive how the university orchestrates 10,000 graduates getting their diploma. I don't understand how they do that.

I didn't realize how impressive this was until I left Ohio State.  I've now been to three other universities after graduating from OSU, all of them were smaller than OSU, and they were all a mess.  And none of them actually give you your diploma.  They mail it to you later.

I'm not so sure it matters. The only way a 2-loss team gets in is if they are a conference championship, so either way either Auburn or Georgia gets eliminated. No matter what, Alabama's loss isn't going to look that bad and the committee might prefer to have 2 SEC teams who haven't faced each other than a rematch.

There are some interesting scenarios here.  Clemson and Miami will have to play each other twice, once as the last game of the regular season and then there will be an immediate rematch in the ACC Championship.  If Clemson wins twice, Miami will have 2 losses.  Those two losses will be "quality" losses, but Miami will clearly not be the best team in the country.  Do they get in?  Maybe, maybe not.  If Miami wins twice, Miami is definitely in and I think Clemson, with 3 losses, should be out.  If they split, then maybe they both get in?

I don't know.  The whole thing is crazy.  If the playoffs end up 2 SEC teams and 2 ACC teams, that'll suck but it could happen.

We had the Trojans (-3) at Arizona State, and while many thought this was going to be an upset special, USC handled the Wildcats with ease. 

FYI, Arizona State are the Sun Devils and the University of Arizona are the Wildcats.  USC beat the Sun Devils last Saturday and plays the Wildcats this Saturday.  ASU and UofA are bitter rivals.  Referring to ASU as the Wildcats is about as offensive as referring to OSU as the Wolverines, yet people do it all the time ... and every time, my husband, who grew up in Tucson and is a big Wildcats fan, practically jumps through the screen to strangle someone.

I was at the USC and V Tech games, but I'm staying away this year in case I'm bad luck.

That said, we should've won that USC game.  This was called a touchdown even though his knee is down and ball has not crossed the line. I'm still grumpy about this.  I also find it a coincidence that the author of this article refers to the "legend of Matt Barkley".  There was the most annoying USC fan sitting behind me yelling, "WHO ... wants to be a legend?" for the whole game.

Apparently some people don't see a reason for this article, but that story about Lee Corso is hilarious!  Also, I'll take any excuse to relive the glory of that Cal game.  I live in the Bay Area and I waited 7 years for that game and it was amazing to see all the Buckeye fans represent.
