Classic Buckeyes. They'll let anybody hang around for a half.


It's the 4th quarter. They're still around.

I don't know. I'm not sold on Ohio State thus far this year. TCU had them for 3 quarters. Penn State should have beat them. Indiana was hanging around with them last week. Now this. They're a solid team, but I don't know if I'd put them in Bama, Georgia or even Notre Dame/Clemson category yet based on how they've played.

My biggest concern is the OL...they haven't looked good for a few games, particularly at opening up holes for the run game. I think our ypc today was < 4. That's simply not good enough against Minn.

I'm not too concerned about the front 7 on defense...we were rotating in DL #8 to #11 at times today because of so many injuries. I didn't expect to dominate the LOS like we did against PSU in the 2nd half. I am concerned however about the DB's. I realize the game plan was to play soft today, but they just can't seem to get off the field at times.

I think OSU matches up good except against Bama and maybe Georgia. I think we can run the table, but I also think we can lose 2 games from here on out.

We need to get healthy and pray that Bosa can come back by the end of the year.

Today could be a scary day for some of these good teams. Ohio State had a scare. ND getting beat. UCF looks like crap. And Georgia in trouble early on.

Right now we have Alabama........and then everyone else is like three giants steps down. Notre Dame and Clemson had their scares at home against unranked teams. Ohio State has not looked all that impressive. Georgia is getting shellacked. UCF gonna lose. We'll see if West Virginia survives a tough game tonight. At this rate, I'm not even sure a college football playoff is necessary. Just give it to Alabama.

Agreed that Bama is a clear #1, they are by far the most balanced team

I think a few teams are capable of beating them but I’d make them an 8-10 pt favorite vs anyone

In the 4 seasons of the College football playoff, the #1 seed has not won the national championship.

It's going to take a team with a strong defense. Clemson and Notre Dame's defenses are strong so they "may" be able to slow them down some but I still think Bama would roll them. I know Buckeyes fans will hate to hear this, but they don't have the defense to keep that game close. It'll be a romp and then some. I do think LSU can hang with them, though, in Baton Rouge in a few weeks in primetime. I'm really anxious to see that game. I think LSU has a chance to keep that game tight.

If Michigan wins out I think they’ll end up in final 4. Georgia losing helped them.

It’s not going well so far for the Mountaineers. This could be the 4th top-10 team to go down today.

Is it really an upset though? Iowa St plays well against everyone. Especially the kings of the Big 12

Gators had gutsy win today. Lost the turnover battle 0-3 and allowed some big plays in the 1st half. But locked it down in the 2nd half enroute to 300yds rushing and a 10pt win.

UGA v UF in 2 weeks in Jacksonville. UGA plays in Kentucky the following week.

We'll see how the SEC East stacks up 3 weeks from now.

I’d call it an upset. ISU is 2-3 and unranked. WVU in top 10 and undefeated. Even though it’s a tough game it’d still be an upset in my book if they win.
