Another reason for the rise is the probability that the Buckeyes beat TTUN has gone up considerably.

Comment 20 Sep 2019

The preseason model dinged the Buckeyes for losing their coach, QB, most of their WR production and 1/2 their RB production.  Now the current season data is coming in and their performance is showing up in the model.

Comment 19 Sep 2019

Actually the Buckeyes were pretty mediocre throughout 2015 and had already dropped in the polls before losing.  The loss just cemented that and the next drop put them out of range.  The scUM game was great but nobody had the Buckeyes in the top 4.

Looking back at that season I forgot that Iowa went 12-0 and went down to the wire against Sparty for the playoffs.

Looking at the S&P+ Overall Defense national rankings from last year:

2.  Michigan State - expect them to lead the B1G in defense again this year

9.  scUM - big losses to graduation and some pretty good recruits coming up

11.  Penn State - return a lot of 4-star talent and have some playmakers 

18.  Iowa - some pretty key losses to graduation - ??

26.  Ohio State - No Bosa but lots of depth on DL and DB's look outstanding and Hafley is highly regarded coach

29. Wisconsin - will be solid again

30.  Northwestern - see Wisconsin

39.  Minnesota - pffft

51.  Maryland - ???

55.  Nebraska - will get better

67.  Rutgers - can Chris Ash do anything there?

75.  Indiana - is it basketball season yet?

88.  Purdue - Ohio State not scoring against this D in the red zone is baffling

115.  Illinois - they're still shitty

Limit the explosive plays and it shouldn't be too hard for the Buckeyes to move into the top 15

Nailed it.  Ohio State puts food on the Forde table when it energizes the vast quantity of haters.  Throwing LSU or Clemson under the bus doesn't put food on the table.

I give him credit for carving out a living after he was canned from ESPN.

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Interesting - I didn't realize the NCAA got involved in the Zach Smith affair nor that the NCAA ran Urban Meyer out of town.  I thought he retired from coaching and stepped into and Assistant Athletic Director job at Ohio State. 

I learn something new here every day.

Comment 27 Jun 2019

I always wondered what Ohio State has for policies/procedures around legal and regulatory issues.  It seems a no-brainer to escalate known violations to the senior management/executive level for discussions with in-house counsel. 

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Be careful - that would make '42, '54, '57, and '61 as 0.5 title years for the Buckeyes and '70 probably about 1/16th of a title.

Comment 11 May 2019

I remember a smart coach benching Todd Boeckman for Terrelle Pryor.  Maybe he is actually good at this

Comment 11 May 2019

The ACC and SEC have benefited because they have had by far the 2 best teams - Clemson and Alabama.  The B1G on the other hand has been outscored 69-0 in their last 2 appearances.

I want expansion strictly because my team has finished just outside the top 4 the last 2 years.  If they had been in the top 4 I sure as s&%t wouldn't be calling for expansion.

Comment 27 Apr 2019

I hear the same from TTUN and PSU fans at work

Fuck Urban.  Ohio State is not good solely because of him.  He probably wants people to think that but I suspect OSU turns a blind eye to everything shady he does that UM admin and fans would never allow.

Everybody thinks their side is on the up and up while the champs are dirty

Comment 20 Apr 2019

Huh I guess this FPI is based largely on returning offensive production and returning coach.  Logic says that would rate Ohio State lower since most of the offensive production graduated and the head coach left.  Experience and talent level on the roster say that likely Ohio State is better than this ranking.  The author then says Ohio State is likely better than this ranking due to other returning and incoming talent.  Also this isn't a poll and all of the polls including ESPN will have Ohio State in their top 5 at the beginning of the season not to mention Ohio State is in the top 4 in Vegas odds so there is no disrespect going on.

Maybe we should have an ESPN FPI FOL (faux outrage level) with a formula:

ESPNFPIFOL = 1 / IQ

Comment 26 Feb 2019

I said that last year and watched an undermanned Nebraska with a true frosh starting QB hang 31 on the Buckeyes in Ohio Stadium.

If the Buckeye defense isn't better then this will be a battle

Comment 16 Feb 2019

No no no its just a calzone dude

Comment 22 Jan 2019

upvote but to let you know that is part of Jon Bois' style.  He is actually hilarious with his Breaking Madden Beeftank series and his Pretty Good series is excellent also.

Comment 04 Jan 2019

Its interesting to see the use of 0.5 for national titles.  By that measure Ohio State would be down to 5.5 total what with '42, '54, '57, '61, and '70 being split titles.
