You still make a good point, we played well against Penn St. and we are proud of that, but U play to win the game :P.


2006 Michigan were a pretty good team too.

C'mon Lizardboy, give it a rest. Were they overrated? Yes. But that doesn't automatically disqualify them from being a very good team.

They finished the season ranked in the top 10, and ahead of the Longhorns team mentioned above. If that isn't a 'pretty good' team, what is?

Considering the BUTT WHOOPING that Troy is putting on LSU, I take back anything bad I ever said about them. :-D

LSU's back in it, but It just goes to show how quickly things can change in College Football, and why you can't hold bad performances by teams against them for very long. Just too much turnover from year to year, especially with programs that see a fair number of guys leave early.

Back on topic, it may take a little help, but OSU still has a shot at a BCS game if they can take care of business against the Team that Shall Not be Named next week. If not Pasadena then maybe Glendale.

Well, if every Bowl Prediction I've seen is to be believed it would seem that the Bucks are once again headed to my neck of the woods, although we'll see for sure tomorrow.

3 Things Will Come of this:

1.) We'll once again get villified as an undefeated Boise State Team gets passed over for an At-Large Bid.

2.) Redemption. If the Buckeyes can pull off a win against a Texas team (that's who I keep hearing will be the opponent) that some folks think should be playing for the NC then it will go a WAYS towards dispelling the Anti Big-10 (and Anti-OSU) bias that has developed. Penn St. beating USC would help too, but I figure we'll take care of that too come next September. }:-)

Kudos to USC here BTW. At least they have the stones to schedule a home-and-home with somebody. More than can be said for most schools (especially warm-weather (SEC) ones).

3.) If they get the nod Tressel's OSU teams have been in the BCS all but one year during his tenure. Blah Blah Blah Big 10 Blah Blah Blah Not Fair.....that don't suck.

On a completely unrelated note:

You know who I think should be the Ohio State QB coach?

Joe Germaine.

Bear with me.

Everything that Pryor needs improvement on, Germaine excelled at.

Reads, pocket presence, the 3-5-7 step drop, mechanics, I could keep going.

All the "conventional" QB stuff that Pryor needs work on was Little Joe's wheelhouse, and his mental approach was lights-out too (he was 4'11" of bada** he was).

Dude's kicking around Arena Ball, so I'm pretty sure any gig OSU signed him up for would pay more, so why not?

I like this idea. If anyone don't I'd like to hear why.

(Joe Germaine has a Super Bowl Ring...w00t!)
