    Northwestern was a fine opponet. They had a great story.
    Scheduling in future we should follow the SEC leade and water down our out of conference schedule. There is no advantage right now in playing a big out of conference game.
    No advantage in an Ohio State representative on the Playoff committee so don't do it.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    A Southern tournament, based on holiday games to attract tourists, that fills the coffers of Southern Chambers of Commerce.

    So, my question is why not make this a national tournament? Why not do away with CCGs? If Dallas can play in Green Bay in December/January, why can't Alabama play in Columbus?

    Usually, I would have posted during the game, however, I was at a party and I found the game on the TV there. The wife was fussing at me as the only two football fans that were there that night were myself and another Husker fan. Not soon after, who walks in the door but a BUCKEYE ALUM.

    She spent the entire game like this (forgive the darkness, she's to the left...):


    Needless to say, she left early as she just couldn't stand it...

    What a boring shit regular season then watering it down. Teams should get credit for quality out of conference matchups. I'll take a Rose Bowl berth and quality out of conference match ups over cupcakes and shot at a title any day. Better as a fan and some bullshit for what they have made this sport. It's like the NBA. Regular season doesn't mean shit

    The only changes that need to be made are going back to the B1G and Pac champs meeting in the Rose Bowl every year.

    Sometimes the world had it right the first time and the pre-BCS/playoff CFB world was better imo.

    CFB's regular season is the best thing in sports. Stick with it. Don't fuck it up anymore than they already have.

    Fox should straight up create their own playoff system and get the Pac-12, B1G and even the Big 12 to join because the current system is rigged. There's no point in even pretending anymore.

    Edit: Also we beat down an overconfident Michigan team and one the B1G in dominating fashion. Everything else can take a spiked dildo.

    There really is no reason not to go to something like this with all the major conferences now. It really is already set up. Win your division then conference champ game and in with a few at large. Not complicated

    You guys know that kills recruiting for Ohio State in any southern state, right?

    How so?

    B1G and Pac 12 say fuck off, we are doing our own thing with our own network. The Rose Bowl champ can go forward and meet the ESPN champ later in January if the details can be arranged.

    B1G schools are still offering big time TV exposure and NFL pipeline same as southern schools.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    This is a lot of "I wish" talk in the game thread for a game that already happened..

    Anyway, I like the idea of 8 teams with auto bids for conference champions, as long as there can be 1 last chance to weed out the teams that don't belong. I think there should be a rule that if the conference champion has 3 or more losses, they lose their auto bid. No offense to Northwestern, but I don't think that a team with 4 losses should be considered for the playoffs, and the fact that they won their division and were within a game of winning the conference tells me that we need to shut this down before it ever happens.

    After the 5 conference champions have been decided, I like the idea of saving one spot for the highest-ranked non-P5 team, and that includes Notre Dame. If you want to remain independent, fine. It's no skin off my ass. And maybe it'd be just 1 spot for the highest-ranked non-P5 team that is in the top 10 or 12. Outside of that, better luck next year.

    With the last 2 or more spots (remember, one or more of the conference champions might not have qualified), it's just ranking to get them in. And the ranking should be some formula to figure it all out. I want to see a really complicated formula that 99% of the fans hate because they aren't smart enough to understand it. I want to see ESPN whine about how hard it is, and they should be allowed to choose the 8 teams, themselves. Don't get me wrong - I don't want to see a total bullshit thing where no one knows what's going on - I want to actually be able to see the formula and apply it, myself. It can't be like the old computer polls, where no one let the outside world have any idea how they worked. The at-large teams would be picked by this formula.

    And my favorite part: play the stupid games at the teams' home fields. Or at least let the higher-ranked teams choose. If Ohio State is the 3 seed, they play the 6 seed in Columbus. In December. Eff you, cry-babies!!! Or, let's say Ohio State works out a deal with Lucas Oil Stadium and they agree to play there. Fine. That's up to Ohio State and Lucas Oil - NOT the NCAA or the SEC or Tim May or Reece Davis or #6 USC.

    I think the 2nd round games should also be at the higher-ranked teams' sites, but that's a losing battle, so I'll just have to be content with first round.
