Yes. Football games are 4 quarters long for a reason. Based on what I've seen, neither Miami nor BGSU (my alma mater) will be in the top half of the MAC
Because nobody else will. Those guys get away with home bowl games and crap schedules. If there are 6 unbeatens, southern teams always get the benefit of the doubt and they would be clamoring for reasons snub us. They're always looking for a reason to leave us out. Granted, we've handed them a reason on a silver platter the past couple years; but what you're calling "smart", many fans would call cowardice
Gus says the word "Buckeyes" as well as anyone
To hell with Clemson. Play somebody. You know damn well the SEC media would be demanding we be left out of the playoff with a schedule like that
It's time to take what we came here to get. That's the season right there
Wisconsin is going to win that football game
Unfair how well those big boys can run
Might hit 80 without trying. Redskins were blown out by UC and it didn't appear that Bearcats were super into it. Not that it will move the media, but we almost have to do an 80-7, 77-3 type performance. Miami is an Alabama vs Tuskeegee or LSU vs Northeastern Louisiana. Those would end like that. Media would call those wins "big" or "impressive" but would engage in commentary about lack of parity or question our class when we do; regardless, as much BS as it is, we'll have to do it to stay #6
Pretty ridiculous. But it will get worse. If ND wins this week, they will jump us and we won't jump Georgia; unless ND wins by 50. Coaches Poll and even AP is mostly meaningless compared to the 1st and proceeding Playoff polls, but it's the principle; and eternally frustrating when people refuse to admit that there is a clear bias in the media towards the south. I respect Georgia far more than ND and especially TTUN, but Georgia is the Dallas Cowboys of the NCAA. Despite their crap schedule, Clemson should be #1 until they're knocked off. I'd take us over everyone else currently ahead of us any day; especially at a neutral site above the mason dixon
Oline and defensive secondary play *uch i*proved. This win won't get credit deserved by out of *arket *edia, but let Cle*son play their BS schedule all year. "Sunshine" doesn't want any piece of us. Indiana and Syracuse will likely get to a similar lame bowl ga*e (would actually be an interesting *atchup if Hoosiers can discover a run ga*e), but I guarantee *edia will act like Tigers win is more i*pressive. Chance to go 4-0. Beat *iami (OH). *ichigan still sucks
Hell, we beat 'em in basketball too. Get dumped, Hoosiers
I'm proud our guys acted like we'd been there before when we crushed them in Norman. And the fact that he considered beating tOSU such a lofty accomplishment, which it is
Really need Young to take over Game 1. If D struggles vs FAU, the UC game will have every pundit at ESPN saying "upset alert" 50x a day the following Sunday through kickoff
Someone needs to coach him up. I don't care if we win 100 in a row. It just means a chance for 101. #hatetrain
Holtmann is a killer - great tests prior to league play. Let's get it
Tathan's gonna Tathan
Imagine if LBJ & the current tOSU NBA guys come on board post-retirement.
Not a huge fan of name of clothing company, but kudos, TS. As a Browns and Buckeyes fan, love your body of work so far, and hope to see your future success!
Further evidence of the difference between our program and that of ttun. I have cited this additional example before, but the the first word of their fight song is, "Hail". The first word of ours is, "Fight". Symbolic of rivalry as a whole, rivalry as it stands & why we hate
Coach Mick deserves an award. Best Damn S&C Coach In The Land
Always tough for Buckeyes to play teams like Dayton. Second maybe to a Final Four appearance, beating tOSU is the best thing that could happen to a Dayton basketball player. We are expected to win and there is no fanfare if we do. It will forever be considered an upset if they win.
