    Can’t for the life of me figure out how Urban couldn’t get the Buckeyes up for this Purdue team.
    Yeah Auburn has looked real good and their speed is just killing Purdue, but Purdue has done okay against the run it has been the passing game that had hurt Purdue.

    Just hoping my game tonight doesn't turn into a blowout. Iowa state has built a defense for the spread so it is a decent match up but Washington state has had a great season going 10-2

    Man Purdue is getting smoked. Good for Auburn but man that has to hurt for Purdue fans. And Auburn is probably going to score more than army did earlier this bowl season.

    Been a rough bowl season for the ACC so far. And by rough, I mean non-competitive. Then, you got the suspensions. Could be a lot closer than I thought it was going to be. I remember the last time Ohio State played Clemson, the ACC was tearing everybody a new one, and Ohio State ended up getting waxed. Of course, Clemson could just be that much better than everyone else in their conference, but things have been lining up for ND.

    I agree to a certain extent but a lot of coaches could've won a national championship with that Ohio State roster that had Zeke, and Bosa. So many of those guys are good NFL players. Other than that while Meyer was at Ohio State we got destroyed against Clemson in the playoff and then smoke by Iowa last year, and Purdue this year which cost us the playoff both years. I think Ryan Day will be a good coach but we are going to take a step back in recruiting for sure..
    That we can both agree on.

    Oh, and you forgot Michael Thomas. That team was loaded. I thought the '02 team was better though.

Meyer also had the ability to get more out of his team in big games. It's still amazing to me that Ohio State got blown out by Florida back in '06 or whatever it was. I remember Jarvis Moss was dominant in that game, and then he was hot garbage in the NFL. Everyone on that Florida team was junk in the NFL except for Reggie Nelson. So long as he wasn't playing Swinny, who thoroughly owned him, Meyer's teams always played a notch better when it really mattered. So I get it in that sense.

    I'm so tired of all of these analysts talking about how Meyer turned the program around like Ohio State had a losing program beforehand.


    Jim Tressel finished his career at Ohio State with an official overall record of 94–22 (.810), including six Big Ten Conference championships, a 5–4 bowl record, a 4–3 mark in BCS bowl games, and an 8–1 record against the arch-rival Michigan Wolverines.

    Does Tressel's record look like we were a cellar dwelling team?

    I kind of figured he would but now it's official. Urban Meyer is retiring. I definitely think it's the right time....

    I think they chose the 4 right teams for the playoffs. It may end up being Bama v Clemson again, but they've been the two best teams for the last 4 years, so seeing that again is fitting. Although I think the semi-finals may be closer than people think.

    I'm a Ohio State Buckeye fan to the bone but I'm going go ahead and say no way the Buckeyes belong in this year. I don't want to see them get smacked around by Bama or Clemson.

    I do think that eventually they should go to a 8 team format. I think that would solve most of the debate.

    Georgia sure did let that game get away. Heartbreaking! Bama would've got in with a loss anyway, though.

    That's good for the playoff imo. They won't be able to hang with Alabama or Clemson. I want the four best teams to get in. Even if that means two SEC teams.
