And I also discount his wife wanting to stay in the Bay Area. That will give him one option and its a mediocre option at best. Who would sabotage their career cause they like the area? If he went to the Raiders what would happen in 2 years when they fuck up the draft picking combine wonders and he's left with a team he doesn't want? Not to mention, would San Fran really trade him across the bay and watch him possibly be successful with their crosstown rival?

The only debate should be between TCU and OSU and if beating Wisconsin if enough to jump TCU.

Pretty damn good arguments can be made for OSU, TCU and Baylor. OSU and Baylor seem pretty damn similar. The loss to VT is really bad but the loss to WVU isn't that much better.

I would say no way Baylor jumps OSU Based on today's games, assuming the current results hold but either/both could jump TCU.

He had one relatively great season and a bunch of decent seasons that topped out at 8-4ish and 4th or 5th place in the Big East. Then he flamed out miserably in TB.
He is very damaged goods that never had a big peak in the first place. I'd much give an up and coming coordinator their first HC gig than have a retread like Schiano who has not proved he can run a top flight program.

Talk about a troll. Who would ever consider a victory against a 6-6 team that was blown out by BYU a statement win? WVU is not a good team either. So what if they hung with Alabama? You know who else did, a terrible Tennesee team and a terrible Florida team.
At the time they scheduled OOC, I'm sure the likelyhood that VT would be good was much greater than Minnesota. Hell, even heading into the two games, those two teams probably looked equal. The rest of TCU's OOC schedule SMU and Samford is just as bad, if not worse, than Kent state, Navy and Cincinnati.
And love the records at the time that you throw in there to skew the argument. Who gives a shit that Oklahoma state was 5-2 at the time when they are now 5-6. Should ND get credit for beating an undefeated Michigan team? Your good/impressive wins come against a 7-6 WVU team, a 5-6 oklahoma state team and an 8-3 Oklahoma team. So really only one good win out of those three.
As of right now, OSU beat the #10 and #18 ranked teams (rankings as of this week)
TCU beat the #12, #18 and #20 with one of them OOC (Minny)
If OSU beats Wiscy next week, they will have played a comparable number of top 25 teams.
Obviously the big thing that stands out is the loss to VT is much much worse than the loss to Baylor and all else being equal, that seems like it should be the deciding factor not the asinine, skewed arguments you are making above.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think it should count||
I don't think it should count for anything more than comparing records and schedules. The whole point of the committee is to look at the entire schedule and the performances and not to just blindly go by head to head.

And Baylor lost to WV and are they really that much better than VT? The VT loss was bad but I'd say so is the loss to WV. Maybe not quite as a bad but nothing remotely close to a "good" loss.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||There is no way they would||
There is no way they would hold the Barrett injury against OSU if they won the B1G title. I see the injury thing as more excusing a loss rather than holding it against a team.
If they beat a 2-loss Wiscy in the championship, you couldn't hold an injury against them because they would've just proven they could survive it.
Who is in the top four? A Baylor team that has a terrible OOC but one really good win and a second good win (assuming they beat k-state. TCU who lost to Baylor but at least beat a decent Minny OOC. No other SEC team should even sniff at the top four.
To be honest, the loss to VT isn't that much worse than a loss to West Virginia and I think the wins are comparable between OSU and Baylor. OSU probably has the depth but Baylor has the best win.

Don't give me some bullshit on youth. We have a senior QB who has started for 2 1/2 yrs. Whats going to happen next year? Another excuse that he needs another year to have a returning starting QB?

It was clear from the 2nd or 3rd series of the Minny game that Morris was grossly ill-prepared and simply not ready to lead the offense in any stretch of the imagination. That he kept being trotted out there with little if any chance to succes made it appear like Hoke was doing it out of spite. What point he was trying to prove escapes me but I have to question his judgment for (1) putting Morris out there in the first place; (2) keeping hm in the game in the 2nd half; (3) letting him get the shit kicked out of him on numerous occasions yet not removing him; (4) not having a fucking clue that Morris was dazed and concussed and (5) being completely inept afterwards when trying to explain what happened. Lost in the shitty handling of the concussion is how he could've ever thought that Morris was ready, why he kept going back to him when he was ineffective and later gimpy in the 3rd quarter pre-probable mild concussion.

Miss State's best wins are against a 3 loss Auburn team and 4 loss LSU and Texas A&M teams. Plus brutally bad OOC schedule.
TCU's best wins are against 2 loss K. State, 3 loss Oklahoma and 3 loss Minny (OOC) and a 4 loss WVU team. They at least played Minny OOC.

Keeping Hoke would set us back even longer. He has been given four years which is plenty of time and an infinite amount of resources and didn't do dick with it. We have gotten appreciably worse this year and weren't competitive in half our games. In four years, we haven't been a better team than us and lost to teams worse than us. No upsets. Just met expectations and beat the teams we were supposed to beat and lost to the teams we were supposed to lose to (and some we weren't). Another year or two of the same mediocre results would erode whatever support he has left and would make it that much harder to come back from. There has been zero evidence of being able to "turn it around"
He was given everything possible to succeed and failed. No coach is going to be scared of that, especially at Hoke's salary. Its another BS excuse to give a "Michigan" man another year when he barely deserves to finish out this year based on his performance so far. They see a big program, with tons of support and tons of resources and great facilities. No potential coach is going to be scared because Hoke was fired after shitting the bed for 2 straight years.

Gardner was not the QB because our incompetent coach decided to bench him in favor of Morris. The same Morris who was clearly ill-prepared and ineffective for the entire game. The same Morris who should not have started the 2nd half because he was in way over his head. The same Morris who was fucking destroyed and could barely move yet our incompetent coach kept trotting him out there. The same Morris who was blatantly concussed and yet our incompetent coach didn't even realize it. Not during the game, not after the game.
DB brutally mishandled it in the aftermath but it was 100% Hoke's causing.

Would you believe me that we were down 21-0 at halftime to ND and at that point they had gained twice as many yards as we had? And we had no turnovers at the half?
Devin may be completing 61% of his passes for a whopping 6.8 YPA. Its pretty easy to complete a high percentage when half your passes are WR screens.

Um, no? The Pac-12 is 13-8 for a .620 winning pct compared to .630 for the SEC yet no one claims the Pac-12 is an elite conference top to bottom. In the last two years the SEC is 1-3 in the BCS games. Yes they have won the National Championship game and they have had elite teams but its horseshit to say that they should get any benefit of the doubt based on prior performance and the entire conference is elite (or at least that the top 6-8 teams are all elite)
The SEC is so awesome top to bottom that two middling Big 12 teams were at the top of the SEC in their first or second year in the conference.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, they win the final game||
Yes, they win the final game but its hard to win the game if you aren't even invited. When SEC teams lose in conference it shows the strength of the conference. When B1G or other conference teams lose in conference, it shows that there are no great teams in that conference. Its a self fulfilling prophecy.
And look at last year, Bama didn't make the NCG after losing to Auburn and then lost to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl yet the story was that Alabama was better but were disappointed they were in a "consolation" game, so you can't really consider it a loss.
This year, Bama should probably be one of the lowest ranked one-loss teams because they haven't beaten anyone yet I'm sure they'll be in the top 5 or 6 becaus SEC RULES!!!!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||But when do they excuses||
But when do they excuses end? Next year it'll be because we lost our #1 receiver and graduated our starting QB and MLB. And then after that, it'll be the DBs and Dline graduating. Most elite (or even good) programs can tough through it. But for some reason that causes us to be damn near the bottom in offense for two straight years. OSU lost their entire offensive line, their Heisman trophy candidate QB right before the season start and their bellcow RB, yet they don't seem to be having any trouble. Its excuse after excuse after excuse here.
Four years in and we have one win against MSU and one win against OSU. Can't win on the road. Have a few embarrassing losses on our resume. Being the lessor teams and winning one good game is a far cry from a turnaround. The fact that beating Indiana and NW and Maryland would be considered a turnaround shows have far we have fallen. Games that we should win 90% of the time are our new measuring stick, not the "red letter" games.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||So in this magical scenario,||
So in this magical scenario, getting blown out by ND and MSU and Minnesota (not to mention bad losses to Utah and Rutgers) is turning the corner if we can somehow beat OSU? Beating a terrible PSU team, a terrible Indiana team, a terrible NW team, an average Maryland team and then OSU is showing progress?
Three straight years of decline don't get erased by one win. Even the sun shines on a dogs ass some days.

Did a whole turkey breast a few weeks ago as a test run (I'm new to smoking have just moved the 'burbs this summer). I brined it for a day and then rinsed it off and let it sit on the shelf in the fridge for a few hours to dry off the skin. Smoked over applewood in my Weber Smokey Mountain at about 275-300 degrees, probalby closer to 275 most of the time. Took maybe 2 hours to hit 154 degrees which is as high as I would take a turkey breast. The meat was awesome but the skin was pretty rubbery I think to get halfway decent skin you need to get the smoker a bit higher, closer to 325 or finish over direct heat on a grill or under a broiler. For thanksgiving, I'm going to try a higher temp and also use more wood, turkey can take a lot of smoke.
Also may opt to go for the smoked turkey leg thing, like at Disney world. No clue how to do that yet but if I see some turkey legs in the supermarket in the next 3 weeks, I'm going to try it out. I know you need to cure those using pink salt (which I have) to get the hammy taste.
I also saved the carcass of the turkey breast and made a smoked turkey stock out of it. Just cover the bones with water, bring to a boil and then turn it down and simmer for 1-2 hrs. Can't decide if i'll use that to make turkey gravy or to make something like a smoked gumbo.

I think they did a pretty good job of not buying the hype/pre-season polls. Based on my quick look, they balanced "good losses" with "good wins"
Ole Miss is in over Bama not just head to head but because Bama's best win is over a 6-2 WV team and I'm glad to see they didn't reflexively put Bama in at 4.
Bama, ND and MSU all have similar losses and you could argue that MSU should be over Bama as their best win is over 1-loss and number 15 ranked Nebraska whereas Bama's best win is over 2-loss and 20th ranked WV.
ND is below them all as their best win is over a 3 loss Stanford team.

This wah-wah, we deserve to be considered a big rival and you have to notice us!!!!! is just amusing and reinforcing the commonly held thought. i just don't get it.

I'm not saying it worked but they definitely had a reason for releasing it so late.

By releasing it at 1am, they missed that night's Sportscenter and were hoping it would be buried on everyone's twitter feed by 8am.
Lets be naive and think they just released it when they finished it... that is almost as bad, if not worse. Cause even if you didn't intend to, the appearance is they tried to bury it.
