I'm not sure why Haskins would stay from a purely NFL readiness perspective. Even assuming Meyer comes back, its clear that Haskins doesn't fit Meyer's prototypical offense and its not like he's getting stellar coaching or pro-style experience while there (read every scouts report about OSU QBs and WRs). I'm not sure what another year at OSU does for him as it relates to increasing his draft grade.
At least with Shea, he went from a simple one-read offense to a pro-style, complex offense so you can see that he might benefit from another year learning and getting comfortable in a complex offense.

I did a quick summary of the wins/losses of the top 8 teams based on the current record and/or standing of their opponent. For this summary, I didn't differentiate between the record of any non-P5 (ex ND team). Can clearly see a line in the sand after Georgia, but not much differentiating the strength of the opponents between the top 5.
|11/11/2018 - 2:18pm||Bama would sport one win…||
Bama would sport one win against a current ranked team and would be fresh off a loss in the most important game of the year.
Michigan would have at least two such wins and be on a 12 game winning streak.
I fail to see how a loser of a conf championship game would not be eliminated when there are a handful of other teams that would stack up against them.

How is Auburn underrated? They are 6-3 and 3-3 in the SEC. 2 of their 3 wins are against the worst teams in the SEC and the third is against 5-4 Texas a&m. and they lost to Tennessee.

|11/06/2018 - 10:25pm||I’ve been saying this all…||
I’ve been saying this all along. Only way a one loss Bama stays in is to lose to LSU and miss the conf championship game. That game is a de-facto play-in game. Plus If Bama loses that they will exactly one win against a ranked team. Michigan will have between 3-5 depending how the season ends.

A fourth rounder's contract is worth about $2M over four years but only about $500k is guaranteed.
A second rounder's contract is worth about $6M but $3M or so is guaranteed. And that jumps if you are a first rounder
Plus teams are more likely to stick it out with a higher draft pick since they generally view lower round picks as expendible. If
So if you have the skills and chance to improve your draft stock, unless you need the money ASAP, the bigger upside is to wait a year. Both on your rookie contract and the likelihood that you would play and be able to get that nice 2nd contract

|11/02/2018 - 8:39pm||They aren’t as high on Gary…||
They aren’t as high on Gary because he barely played healthy this year and didn’t really get a chance to show it off. Plus most teams schemes around him so his counting stats were low for that reason, as well (remember the triple team he rode across the field!) Assuming he’s healthy he will crush the combine and rocket up the board.
|11/01/2018 - 11:59am||If Bama loses to LSU and…||
If Bama loses to LSU and wins the rest of their games, they would have at best two wins over top 25 teams (Texas A&M and Mississippi State) and its probable that neither would stick in the top 25 with another loss as both already have three losses (Texas A&M still has to play LSU).
Michigan would have one more win overall, a conference championship and have top 25 wins over OSU on the road, possibly Iowa in the big ten championship and maybe PSU. It possible even wisco or NW sneak back into the top 25 if they keep winning (both have 3 losses).
I know the SEC bias is real but I just have a hard time seeing how Bama would stack up when their best win would be at home against an unranked team.

Considering that they are undefeated, playing at ND was a no lose scenarios. Win and it’s a huge win, lose and you sort of get a pass. Beating a shitty SEC team would’ve been at best a push vs losing on the road to an undefeated ND in the opening game of the season

I also read a report that some of the starters walked out of the locker room during this announcement. Maryland regents just effectively blew up their own football program
|10/30/2018 - 2:42pm||I don't see any way Oklahoma…||
I don't see any way Oklahoma is a top 1-loss team. Their best win is 4-3 Iowa State at home and they lost to 6-2 Texas at home. We have four wins better than Oklahoma (and two were on the road). This week WV plays Texas, and its possible the loser may drop out of top 25 which would diminish their loss or hurt their last chance for getting a quality win
|10/30/2018 - 1:47pm||I think the conf…||
I think the conf. championship is a double-edged sword in that you can propel you in by giving you one more shot at win against a quality opponent but is seen as basically a play in game. I can't see losing that game not knocking you out unless the next up has two losses and it comes down to 12-1 vs. 11-2. I can see the justification for getting into the final four despite not playing in the championship game under the right scenario but not losing the game.
|10/30/2018 - 1:40pm||If LSU beats Bama, there is…||
If LSU beats Bama, there is a pretty good chance that Alabama ends the season with zero wins against top 25 teams (right now I think its only Texas A&M and they probably should not be ranked and are holding on for dear life). LSU is their last chance besides the SEC championship game. No way Bama would be above Michigan which would be on a 12 game winning streak and have probably 3-4 wins that are better than Bama's best. Beating Arkansas St by 50 pts means nothing if you failed in your only hard game all year
|10/29/2018 - 2:48pm||I was half watching the game…||
I was half watching the game and besides the blown play at the goal line (it was the QBs fault, not the WR) , and it also seems like Nate Stanley is allergic to completing the pass. He had at least one John O'Kornesque wide open WR that wouldve been for a TD that he overthrew by 10 yards. Plus he just flat out missed a number of open passes. Add that to some baffling play calls by Ferentz and you get a PSU win
|10/26/2018 - 2:01pm||His success at Vanderbilt is…||
His success at Vanderbilt is also slightly misleading. Yes, I know its Vanderbilt but all he did was finally start beating the other crappy teams on his schedule. I think he had one win against an SEC team that finished above .500 in the conference.
|10/24/2018 - 4:11pm||Bama losing in the SEC champ…||
Bama losing in the SEC champ game would be an automatic out for the playoffs. If you can lose in the conf championship game and still make the CFP unless there are no other comparable teams, the system would blow up.
The only scenario where a one-loss Alabama team is even considered is if they lose a nailbiter to LSU and don't make it to the SEC title game. Then you can at least argue that they finished tied for first in their division but missed the title game due to tiebreakers (see OSU in 2016). Of course Bama's schedule is hot garbage when their best OOC game is Arkansas State, so not sure about being 1-1 at best against the top 25 is going to help things.
|10/24/2018 - 2:38pm||I dont think a team that…||
I dont think a team that lost in the Conf Championship game would make it unless every other team had 2 losses. It's one thing to be passed for the game due to a tiebreaker but losing in the final game, I just don't see losing what is generally considered a play-in game and it having no impact. Plus, once again Alabama has not exactly had a challenging schedule and if they beat LSU to go undefeated in the regular season, that would still only give Alabama only one top 25 win on the season unless Texas A&M wins the rest of their games and they stick at the bottom end of the top 25
|10/24/2018 - 2:20pm||I have taken my kids to…||
I have taken my kids to Michigan games (in Ann Arbor) at younger ages and they were fine. Kept feeding them food and drinks and they were happy. Got a little bored in the 4th quarter and then gave them our iphones to play with until we left. I've personally been to two Rutgers game but they were both night games, so didn't subject my kids to those (they were both younger than 4 for the first game in 2014). So my only concern would be that it might be a night game, although there are some decent big ten games that week, NW at Iowa, Wisco at PSU, OSU at. MSU, so hopefully the game will not be a 730 kickoff
|10/24/2018 - 2:01pm||Agreed. Plus he'll also…||
Agreed. Plus he'll also test off the charts at the combine, assuming he's healthy and that will rocket him up the boards

|10/23/2018 - 4:33pm||If OSU loses to MSU, that…||
If OSU loses to MSU, that would be their second Big Ten loss. Assuming we beat PSU, Indiana and Rutger, we would have zero Big Ten losses going into the Game whereas everyone else in the division would have at two conference losses... ergo, after the Indiana game, we would be assured of having the best record in the Big Ten East

If Alabama loses to LSU, and LSU wins all the rest of their games and the SEC champ, I don't see how Alabama can get in unless there is chaos. I know they are have been killing everyone but their schedule has been crazy soft. At the end of the day, LSU may be the only ranked team on their schedule at the end of the season. Right now Texas A&M is likely the only ranked team and they have to play at Miss State and then play LSU, so its possible/likely the end up with four losses
Bama with no-conference championship and zero top 25 wins should be behind at least
Maybe they can stay ahead of a one-loss OSU team that wins the Big Ten and most likely Oklahoma/Texas

Wasn't Bosa's injury possibly a season ender or close to it? It is not like he was coming back next week and now is skipping half the season. If that was the case, why bother dealing with classes when he wasn't going to make it back to the field this year and he was going to leave school within two months to prep for the draft either way.

Yes got the ash catcher but not sure it’s necessary. I line the bottle with foil, then put the coal basket and ash catcher in. After the cook I lift the whole thing up, foil and all, and the removed basket and then dump ash catcher into foil and ball it up and throw out.
When I ultimately cook a pork butt or brisket my plan is to hang to start and then move to a rack when it’s 160-180ish.
I also will be doing thanksgiving on it this year. Wrestling between spatchocking/hanging and getting the turkey hanger.

Dude, just stop doubling down on your asinine post already. Rutgers brought the Big Ten everything it was meant to... whether you think it was worth the Big Ten selling their soul is a separate issue.

It had no trouble cooking 4 racks of SLC ribs with one load of charcoal and had plenty of charcoal left. Haven't yet done a brisket or pork butt on it but ribs and chicken come out amazing

|08/07/2018 - 2:02pm||Was living and working in…||
Was living and working in NYC that day. Without knowing what the issue was besides just a blackout (i.e., no terrorism), I continued working until my computer battery died and then went to the bar next door which really meant the street outside the bar. I unfortunately had next to cash on my and had to beg and plead co-workers and friends for some cash. Then started the trek home from 45th street to 29th street. Surreal scene. Random bystanders directing traffic, all bodegas selling beer for like a buck each just so it wouldn't get ruined, drinking on the street, etc. Finally made it home and proceeded to have to walk up 24 flights to my apartment. Drank whatever I could find in my apartment but (at the age of 25) it never dawned on me that the gas stove would still work so didn't bother checking the fridge/freezer for food and wound up throwing everything out.
It was so damn hot that you could only lie in bed and stare up at the ceiling while sweating.
The next day just sort of wandered around the city hoping for some relief. A couple random pizzerias were selling food cause the gas ovens worked. Finally around 5pm the electricity came one and took the greatest coldest shower ever, found a local restaurant that re-opened with a limited menu of essentially pantry staples and hung out the rest of the night
