This is the big difference.
Nobody on our offense scares anyone. Smith, Speight, Butt, etc - not one is going to have scary stats or big key plays against top 10 teams.

Went with PS Vue and a HD TV attenna before the season. Didn't miss a game college or pro.
If you are looking for Christmas presents get a PS4 and a Vue subscription.
Cut cable bill by $100/month = $1,200 / yr = $12,000 or next 10 years.

World class University, Alumni, Funds, Facilities and a highly paid coach.
I call bullshit we shouldn't be a bubble team nearly every year.

I've watched all his team. This team doesn't pass the stink test.
It's possible we only win 2 or 3 Big Ten games.

So favored by 10, barely won.
UCLA is going to be a 30 pt + blowout.
Unbelievably, this is the worst Beilein team yet.
After the Orange Bowl, it's going to be another long wait for fall football camp.

I don't agree - expectations should be playoff every year.
We have the highest paid coach, the best stadium, a world class University and #4 football program in revenue.

I agree with him.
It's wasn't a "played our asses off and lost at the last minute" type of game
We laid a huge egg at Iowa and allowed a shit team to stay in the game. The whole game was wrong - not just the last minute.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||But the fact of the matter is||
But the fact of the matter is they would be champs, they'd have an 11th win, AND they would've just beaten the #6 team in the country.
And the beat the #2 team in the country, which we could not.

Beilein game - shoot long.
If you go cold you are done as you have no one to drive lane to pickup layups and fouls.
If you are shooting hot you can beat anyone.

Refs suck, refs suck, refs suck, int, int, fumble (3 turnovers on a road game against #2 team - nothing to see here), refs suck, refs suck, refs suck

It probably will. A 2 loss Michigan with a win over a 2 loss Colorado will be ranked higher.
|8 weeks 11 hours ago||We are in a "polls" + 2 games||
We are in a "polls" + 2 games system. Not a "defacto 8 game system".
Used to be the poll winner was NC.
Now the top 4 poll winners must win 2 games to get the NC.
|8 weeks 12 hours ago||I think these are in place||
I think these are in place for an eventual expanded playoffs. The idea is that a late-blooming cinderella team could make their way into the playoffs via the conference championships automatic seed. When the Big 12 gets a playoff, I can see what the OP describes happening - 6 auto bids from conference champs and two "at large" invites.
|8 weeks 12 hours ago||Not far fetched at all. If||
Not far fetched at all.
If Clemson or Washington lose we will have the best 2 loss portfolio.
|8 weeks 12 hours ago||No 8 team playoff - but the||
No 8 team playoff - but the current system is flawed.
1) Make it a condition that you must win conference championship to get in playoff. This would exclude OSU and make the PSU/Wisc winner a playoff participant.
2) Make the conferences change their formula so overall record is the #1 indicator. This would have OSU in the B1G championship game.
As it it now, OSU gets a bye week for the playoffs -unfair for the other teams.
Also, if Colorado beats Washington, we could sneak back in at #4! We are obviously the strongest 2 loss team - having beat Wisc, PSU and Colorado and taken the #2 to 2 OT in their house.

Columbus next Sat is 43 at noon, overcast with a 8mph breeze.
That said, the 1st half sucked because
1) O-line wasn't doing any pass or run blocking.
2) O'Korn had the jitters.
3) The weather.
When the O-line actually showed up to play in the 2nd half the run and pass game improved dramatically and the QB sacks/hurries dropped.
The last two weeks has been 80% O-Line issues, IMO. Speight getting knocked around eventually hurt along with O'Korn running for his life the 1st half.

Amazing how 3 teams we beat are still knocking on the playoff backdoor. (Soon to be 4 with OSU).
Not afraid of Death Star - it was blown up twice, only blew up a planet once so Death Star is 1-2.
