Grew up in the subs north of Columbus and remember throwing tantrums when 8 years old and Woody's Buckeyes would lose. Now living in Italy and started reading Eleven Warriors on a daily basis after Coach Meyer was hired.

Recusing while OSU is discussed is practically the same as a NO vote in my book. It might even be worse because he can't even give any arguments for OSU. Me thinks that Gene is much smarter than what people give him credit and he experienced first hand the incompetence of the committee and wanted out fast.

I agree, the committee is a joke. I think they should use the BCS computer rankings. This will save a lot of money and human resources and be much more objective.

I wonder though if ND was not in the mix, would the committee have chosen Georgia over OSU? The final ranking before bowls suggest this. That would have been an outright travesty.

-Buckslan.....I can not believe the DV's you are getting for your logical statement. Shows how many people in this world have no logic or reason behind their thinking.

Comment 28 Dec 2018

Your damn right it's sour grapes and justified. OSU is the only team to not get any "benefit of the doubt" arguments when they should. I have to admit they got one 2 years ago when they shouldn't have when they didn't win the conference. I think it should be a requirement but not an automatic bid to win conference to get in the playoff.

a substantial mistake career wise? Only if career equals money earned then I guess you could phrase it that way but first off, career is way more than money earned and two, if he were to have a year as successful as this year, he would be number one overall pick with Heismann. You could make an argument that his overall career would be enhanced for staying another year with another year under his belt.

I think he wants to play another year at OSU. We know his dream was to be the QB here and having only one year might seem a bit short. If he loves playing at the college level which is probably much better than playing at the NFL level(for many this is true) where it becomes a job, then he just might stay.

Lawrence ended up losing that game to Syracuse. What did Haskins do when he came into the game against *ichigan when Barrett got injured? Oh yeah, he won the game. Funny how Clemson got a pass too when they lost an eventual 2nd team Qb to injury and Ohio State got nothing for losing the best player in college football 3 days before Purdue game. What is that called?

No one complains about the bb buckeyes not being champions because it was decided on the court and not in some small room by 13 people who have biases and very subjective criteria. The committee has to go. Ditch the committee and use the BCS computer rankings. I had read that the BCS standings had OSU at #3 this year. This method would save the NCAA a lot of money for not having to pay the committee members.
