Totally true!  I remember my being at my brother-in-law's wedding the summer we hired That Matta from Xavier.  One of his family members went into great detail explaining how we shouldn't get comfortable because he would leave us after a couple years.  I laughed and told him to name one head coach that left Ohio State voluntarily in the last 25 years.  I gave him the entire wedding, of course he couldn't name anyone.  

I then went into explaining that Ohio State is a place people ASPIRE to coach at.  People work their whole careers to get a job about OSU.  Nobody aspires to be at Xavier/Butler/Univ of Cincinnati. And to some extent, even other B1G schools are just stepping stones to bigger universities.

That was magical.  Now I have to go pull out my Sugar Bowl Blu ray.

  1. Drop Celebration Penalties
  2. Grant 2 Challenge Flags to coaches for replay review(s).  Limit review time to 2 minutes maximum, from the official's stoppage of play to the official's verdict is read.  Give the head official at least a 22 inch monitor to watch the reviews.
  3. Require pylon cameras.
  4. Consider adding computer chips to the ball to judge distance, thereby removing the manual measurements. Obviously the ball won't know when the player is down.
  5. Add one additional official to watch the line for penalties.  Too many games go by with uneven calls for face masking and holding.

Alabama has wins against one team currently ranked in the top-10: USC. Alabama also has AP top-25 victories against LSU and Auburn.

You already know this, but for comparison Ohio State has:

  • 11-1 overall record, 8-1 Big Ten
  • Three top-10 wins, including road wins at top-10 Oklahoma, Wisconsin
  • 2OT win vs. Michigan in a No. 2 vs. No.3 game
  • Only loss came on the road at night to a now top-10 Penn State

Three B1G teams?  There is no way that would happen.  Despite this week's rankings, I think Oklahoma would get jumped up if Washington and Clemson lose.  AL, OSU, OK, MI/WI/PSU in no particular order would be my prediction.
