    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Give Gene-O some credit for the UNLV scheduling. A glorified scrimmage to work out the problems was exactly what was needed this week.

    I thought the same before this day came, with Gene involved, we're screwed.

    What exactly was the guy who was recused from being able to consider the Buckeyes supposed to do?

    All due respect, I don't view the situation that simply--there's a lot more involved here than whether Gene needs to step outside the room while OSU is being discussed.

    Not much, but there is a point to be made about not penalizing teams for playing top-4 competition in nonconference play. It is not a good trend to set to simply favor power conference teams with fewer losses regardless of who they have played, but that seems to be the direction the committee has turned. I'm not saying their choice was all bad, but the direction the committee is going in basically giving an edge to weak schedules is not good.

    Bama literally has no incentive to play anyone other than the Mercers of the world outside of conference play - just avoid losing more than 1 game & they're likely in. This does cheapen the regular season in my mind.

    I agree with that, but there is no evidence Gene didn't make this argument to the members when given the opportunity, which is my only point on this thread right now. I'm not a Smith apologist, but there doesn't seem to be any reason to be on his dick about the results of the playoff committee. Not that you are doing that.

    This probably had no impact but there was no one in the committee to speak on behalf of the Big Ten. Gene Smith had to recuse himself from discussing anything regarding the Big Ten's only hope. Jeff Long of the SEC got to sit in there and go to bat for Alabama along with a dude who coached at Vanderbilt and played for Clemson yet had no recusals

    Poor Gene Smith, having to wait out in the hallway and miss out on all those big payoffs to all the other CFP committee members. :sad:

    He actually did us a favor. Play Clemson again with JT at the helm, and we get murdered just like last year.

    Love JT, but I'm so ready for him to go.

    Gene Smith didn't lose us the Iowa game by 31 fucking points.

    The degree of cluelessness many Buckeye fans have about Gene Smith continues to amaze me. He's easily the top AD in the country.
