    Win the B10 and beat scUM...I'll be happy

    I refuse to count tOSU out of the NC yet...stranger things have happened and I'm sick of the media conspiracy theories.

    None taken, DH. BTW, that wasn't my post about rugby keys to success. However, there is some overlap between the two sports and what is necessary to win at the highest levels. Both require a meshing of intellect and athletic ability and both require mental and physical "courage" to use Bill Conley's term. This team will get there under Tressel. I would be less confident of that if Cooper was still the coach. They certainly have the athletic skill to be successful. They need repetition and to develop the game-sense that is hard to simulate. They also need to attack and play aggressively while they are developing. Getting there fast and with bad intentions can cover many sins. Letting the game come to them will not work at this point, obviously.

    I think winning the Ten outright will definitely hold some weight with the pollsters, however I honestly think even if we were to get our shit together and win out there will be at least one other team with only one loss. Too many of the top teams do not play each other this year. Add that on to the less than impressive way we seem to win all of our games and I think it is an extreme longshot for us to sneak in. The fact that the other conferences have championship games that give the top teams another chance to lose is our advantage, but I don't know if it will be enough for us this year.

    I'm not sure what you're gettting at here Rugby- we're talking about FOOTBALL... not little girls games like Hopscotch, Jacks, and Rugby...

    Funny. I once saw a Doberman try to intimidate a Rhodesian Ridgeback (the kind that are/were bred to hunt lions). The Ridgeback just yawned.

    I've played both. At comparable levels both are hard, but it takes more to play without the equipment. I would put D1 football up against the Southern Hemisphere Super 12 competition; similar levels of athletic size and ability, similar speed, but with no pads, no substitutions, and playing offense and defense.

    We will play at least two teams over the next seven weeks that will be in the top 10 when we play them (Purdue and Michigan). The PU game is on the road. We also will play Wisconsin when they're ranked 15th. If we win out, there's no reason why we won't be a top-5 team by the end of the season with the way other conferences will be beating up on each other. I'll tell you all right here and now: If we win out, we will be in a BCS bowl game.

    I would agree, if we win out we will be in a BCS game, I am just not as optimistic it will be the championship game. If we win out we will have no less than a share of the Big Ten Championship and probably the automatic bid. If not we are always an attractive at large due to the fanbase. If we share with Minny, Purdue, no way does the BCS take one of them over us. Wisconsin, scum we would have had to beat both of them to get there so I think we would get the bid. Bottom line, we need to seriously regroup or this is all a pipedream.

    Fuck the BCS and it's national championship. That's just the gravy. Our season and my mental health revolve primarily upon beating scUM. Hopefully, we win all the rest, improve every week, play well... However, if we don't and we win on 11/17, I'm set until spring practice. I don't care about the SEC/ PAC10/BIG12/ACC. They just don't matter... much.

    You're right, Mili, but it won't be the Orange Bowl, unless there is only one other team with only one or less losses. But, I'm with Rugby on this....one loss does not a season make, and beating scUM is a great prize, with a B10 title the dessert.
