    The average ranked offense OU has faced (both total and scoring) rank 11 spots higher than Ohio State. So by default, neither of our teams have a defense that is all that impressive. But OU's offense is about to set the NCAA record for yards per play in a season (9.0) and OU is first in the nation in both total AND scoring.

    Yep, without question.

    So your point is that the S&P has a significantly larger divide than the mitigating factor you spent all that time digging up?
    Cool story. Fail... but cool story.

    What really is defense anymore in 2018 anyway??? Both the Rams and the Chiefs had a 54-51 shootout last week on Monday night, and they're likely to face each other in the Super Bowl

    Let's look at how Ohio State and Michigan played a similar, quality opponent in Penn State.

    Ohio State - 1 point win
    Michigan - Still scoring against them

    Gee.....Michigan must be better than Ohio State. I hope we don't face them this year.

    No, let's break down the compositional structure of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. Because it's equally relevant to this discussion and has the advantage of being intellectually engaging.

    Fungo Squiggly Mortal enemy of all things Bucky Yahoo Pickem Champ Former Game Champion '18 Keeper League Champ '18 BPCFFB II Champ know how to pick them. Although the 5th and 9th get significantly more play and the climax of the 9th is simply breathtaking when performed well, I will take the 7th on the whole all day and everyday.

    It is. And although many lookdown on all the even-numbered ines, the Pastoral is probably my 3rd favorite behind 7 and 9.

    Look what you've done @MaxBuck ....I hope you're happy now. :lol:

    Beethoven has been dead for 191 years. Why wait?

    I've always been rather fond of Wellington's Victory, which was a kind of prelude to the 7th... like an opening band.
    I'm not sure it's really any better, but always been a fan of Wellington contrasted to the more lauded Napoleon (though if you ever get a chance, his mausoleum in Paris is amazing to behold and a great museum with WWI and WWII stuff attached).

    More recently I've had this stuck in my head. Nothing like Beethoven, but I'm arbitrarily changing to military themes
