I don't buy that we need to play Martell to keep him from transferring. Dwayne Haskins could be gone next year, and then Martell is the most senior guy left. There's also the fact that he's one Dwayne Haskins injury away from being the starter.

Now, should we play Martell because he has some unique skills that would be useful in certain situations? Sure. But I don't think we need to play him to keep him happy--he seems a smart kid who's not going to hop ship the second things get a little tough for him.

Counterpoint #2: the 9 game schedule isn't what ruined OSU's CFP hopes last season, OSU won every conference game they had a realistic chance of losing, and if they could have just performed to their standards against Iowa they would have been #In

Counterpoint: put pressure on the CFP to punish teams for scheduling easy opponents.

In general, I think the CFP needs to have a less opaque and subjective metric than "the eye test" for who gets in. Now of course some subjectivity will always come into play, but I think there should be a mathematical points-based system where certain resume items give a team +/- points in the final analysis. For example: scheduling an FCS team is always a deduction to your points regardless of the result (unless you lose, in which case it's a double deduction). Now, granted, SEC and ACC teams have agreements with FCS teams that have to be honored, so the rule wouldn't come into effect right away, only such that P5 teams would be discouraged from scheduling them in the future (let's say there's a 2-3 season grace period, plenty of time for ADs to fix their future schedules and ditch the cupcakes)

If Frost can coach Nebraska to 10 wins or more in his first season, he deserves to get a bump to the top 20, as it is, 25 is fine for him.

I like Jack White for no other reason than he has an admirable love of old American music, the blues in particular. He's done some great covers of Death Letter Blues and Jolene by Dolly Parton.

I always watched The Game with my family, but I'd say it wasn't until that magical 2014 season that I became a diehard Buckeye. Then again, 2014 was a pretty big year for me in general for sports--that was also the year I became a huge soccer fan.

I really don't understand why people are so upset over Burrow transferring that they "hope" he beats Ohio State. Are you guys fans of a team or fans of a single player?
