tOSU at Maryland, November 14th, Cancelled

    Total bummer this weekend was cancelled, and many more will be as well, I'm sure.

    That said, there will be a CFP this year. OSU is in great shape, as ESPN is hemorrhaging ratings, and actually need tOSU more than tOSU needs them. For the first time we have a position of power as ESPN scrambles to save whatever is left of their network.

    I'm more confident than ever, they will find a way to bring the 4 highest rated fanbases together to juice whatever ratings they can.

    Right now that'd be: Bama, OSU, ND, and Clemson.

    People talking about a non P5 getting in are delusional even though I love BYU this year. It just is what it is.

    Hope our team can stay healthy, and just get in as many games as possible.

    MacArthur Park
    Richard Harris
    Spring was never waiting for us, girl
    It ran one step ahead
    As we followed in the dance

    Between the parted pages and were pressed
    In love's hot, fevered iron
    Like a striped pair of pants

    MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet, green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain

    I don't think that I can fake it
    'Cause it took so long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again, oh noooooo

    I recall the yellow cotton dress
    Foaming like a wave
    On the ground around your knees
    Birds like tender babies in your hands
    And the old men playing checkers, by the trees

    MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet, green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain

    I don't think that I can take it
    'Cause it took so long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again, oh noooooo

    There would be another song for me
    For I will sing it
    There would be another dream for me
    Someone will bring it

    I will drink the wine while it is warm
    And never let you catch me looking at the sun
    And after all the loves of my life
    After all the loves of my life, you'll still be the one

    I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
    I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
    I will have the things that I desire
    And my passion flow like rivers through the sky

    And after all the loves of my life
    Oh, after all the loves of my life
    I'll be thinking of you - and wondering why

    MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet, green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain

    I don't think that I can take it
    'Cause it took so long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again
    Oh noooooo, o-oh no-ooooo

    Relax, Ohio State’s College Football Playoff hopes are not in jeopardy after game against Maryland is canceled

    The news that Ohio State’s game against Maryland is canceled is disappointing on many levels. For starters, it could’ve actually been a decent game.

    Even though the No. 3 Buckeyes will be sitting on the couch this weekend and now will only play a maximum of 8 games before the College Football Playoff Committee selects its 4 teams, this does not jeopardize the Buckeyes’ Playoff chances. As long as Ohio State continues to mop the floor with its opponents like it has for the first 3 weeks of the season, it shouldn’t have a problem cracking the top 4.

    Not that it particularly matters in the end, but it was Maryland that experienced an outbreak, with reportedly 8 players testing positive. Ohio State can’t be penalized for something entirely out of its control.

    Besides, Ohio State is far from alone in getting games canceled. The SEC, for example, lost Auburn-Mississippi State, Texas A&M-Tennessee and Alabama-LSU — the 3rd time in 4 weeks that the conference will have 4 or fewer conference games. Alabama may not be able to make that game up because LSU already needs to make up a game with Florida. Should Alabama be punished because of that? Of course not.

    The college football landscape is such that there are really only a handful of teams still seriously in the hunt for the CFP.

    Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame are probably in everyone’s top 4 right now, plus Texas A&M, Florida and maybe Cincinnati. If Ohio State is an 8-0 B1G champ instead of 9-0, I don’t think it will make a difference. If the Buckeyes get a few more games canceled, then maybe that warrants more skepticism of their résumé. But when Ohio State has the built-in credibility, arguably the Heisman front-runner and the results to back it up, it’s going to take a lot more than 1 canceled game to change that.

    That said, this would’ve been a valuable game for Ohio State to play because, well, Maryland is surprisingly good. This game seemed like a throwaway when the schedule came out, but Maryland has more wins (2) than Ohio State’s first 3 opponents — Nebraska, Penn State and Rutgers — have combined (1). If the Terrapins keep on winning, this could’ve been a quality victory for the Buckeyes. With how much Michigan is struggling and the fact that Ohio State’s other crossover is the worst team in the Big Ten (Illinois), all that’s left as a quality win at this point is probably Indiana.

    While it’s nothing to be alarmed about yet, there are a few concerns in Columbus about Ohio State’s defense. Was allowing 373 yards to Rutgers — more than 100 yards over the Scarlet Knights’ season average — a sign that the defense is not championship-caliber? Or was it because Ohio State was up 35-3 at halftime and Rutgers executed several nifty trick plays that caught Ohio State off guard?

    Now we have to look at the schedule and guess who will or won't get Covid. I think IU should be OK but at Illinois? at MSU?

    This can't be true. You only have one SEC team in that list. Add 2-4 more and your list will be complete.

    Does the Michigan game count as a “no contest” even if they show up?

    Does this count as a forfeit and will Ohio State get credit for the win?

    No, this is a cancelation and does not count as a forfeit. Nobody will receive a win or a loss. The game ceases to exist.

    Well that ain’t right!

    Is this a question?

    Why shouldn’t Maryland receive a loss for canceling the game when they’re still within the parameters to play it?

    This is starting to get into victim blaming.

    What does this mean for the Ohio State vs. Indiana game?

    Nothing. Unless one of those teams reports a significant outbreak, that should be able to go on as scheduled.

    Can Ohio State play Alabama this weekend?

    No. Under the current Big Ten rules, no out-of-conference games are allowed. Nebraska tried to schedule a game against Tennessee-Chattanooga after their week two game with Wisconsin got canceled, and the conference turned them down.

    Also, there’s virtually no chance that Nick Saban or Ryan Day would be willing to play a game of that magnitude on such short notice.

    And the SEC’s protocols are different from the Big Ten’s, which may give the Big Ten even more reason to say no.

    But Sir Yacht says…

    No. Stop it. You’re embarrassing yourself.


    What does this mean for Ohio State’s College Football Playoff chances?

    Functionally, nothing. Whether Ohio State is 9-0 after the Big Ten Championship Game or 8-0 or 7-0, they’re going to be in the Playoff field.

    Given the fallout around the country, a 7-1 or 6-1 Big Ten champion Ohio State would be close to a lock to make the Playoff field. And even a one-loss non-champion Buckeye team would get strong consideration.

    There is a broad consensus that Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State are the three best teams in the nation. It could take two losses for any of those teams to knock them out of the field at this point.

    B1G administration from Warren down should all be fired. Not because this game was cancelled, but because of everything the B1G did fucking up to entire process in canceling the year, to putting a process in place that guaranteed failure. And it's not hindsight, everyone called it.
