Putting players in a natural market was written right into their business plan. It makes sense. A Columbus team would have killed it, win or lose. I have no idea how they selected their cities, but, they obviously didn't quite work. I don't think attendance was the straw that broke the camel's back though. I think it was the lack of NFL support and thus lack of sponsors and TV dollars.

If you look at the AAF model, that is what they tried to do. It wasn't a coincidence Trent Richardson played for Birmingham. They put the players in the closest areas to either where they played college ball, or where they grew up. The only draft they had was for quarterbacks. It failed because most players (take OSU players for example) didn't have a natural home team close enough to the fan base. The San Antonio team was LOADED with Texas, TCU, North Texas, AtM players. That's why they killed it in attendance.

The McLaurin video really shows what a respectful and well-grounded young man he is. I can see why Urban always had a soft spot for him. I hope he and Simba are a great one - two punch in the NFC East. I think they will be while the Giants are pouting around the parking lot kicking rocks.

This, Chicago. I paid my $5 knowing full well it wasn't a game during the Meyer years. You know why?? Because I got a peak at the Buckeyes. It was always (and will always be) a pretty cheap treat on a Saturday in April. I question those who don't think it is "enough of a show" for five freaking dollars. You can't go to a bad movie for that.

More than the actual game, it is just the chance to go to the Shoe and spend "man time" with my sons. Do a little tailgating, talk, get a real feel for how the team might shake out in the fall. My sons are grown and on their own, so we don't get much time together anymore. It is a nice day for that.

I agree OSU should have made the playoffs in 2015, but I also understand why the committee thought otherwise. There was so much floundering against BAD competition the 2015 version didnt impress ANYONE, not even the fans, until the win up North. The committee remembered some bad football teams hanging around late in the game. Like I said earlier, there is ONLY one way in. Win all your games AND look dominant doing it. Not one committee member could find fault with that.

The real problem is every year is a moving target with these committees. As soon as you think one way into the playoffs will work, they change their emphasis for that particular season. There is ONLY one surefire way into the playoffs....win all your games and look dominant doing it....
