    Why do you care what everyone here thinks?

    Why does anybody? We're all BKB anyway.

    The comparisons to FSU 2014 are extremely lazy, and becoming cliche.

    Ohio State in Big Ten play:
    Points for = 226 -- first in conference
    Points against = 89 -- second in conference (and second in nation)

    Average score in conference: 37.67 - 14.83
    Average score in all games: 36.4 - 13.8

    (0 games decided by six points or fewer. 2 games decided by 7 points)

    FSU 2014 conference play:
    Points for = 286 -- second in ACC
    Points against = 175 -- fifth in ACC

    Average score in conference: 35.75 - 21.87
    Average score in all games: 33.7 - 25.6

    (7 games decided by six points or fewer - doesn't even include NC State and Louisville, where they were down big and rallied late)

    What exactly are we looking for here?

    Because even though it's not supposed to influence the decision, it does influence the decision of the committee.

    Clemson got the #1 position simply due to the fellatio done because they beat 6-4 Miami 58-0.

    Yes they beat Notre Dame and FSU, but they got to #1 before playing FSU. They definitely deserve to be in the top 4 with what they've done, but nothing has made me believe #1.

    Made me money by covering spread by 9 points so I'll take it.

    This. At this point last year, there was an outside shot at tOSU making the playoffs and few believed we'd fare well against the perceived titans of college football. I'll take a healthy JT, Urbans psychology background, and a group of highly competitive and talented individuals against anyone, any day. It's college football, nothing is certain.

    You're telling me I should care no more about a bunch of fellow Buckeye fans than I do a bunch of journalists I've never met and never will meet, and with whom I have little in common?

    The national media distorts facts into narratives. Many people (possibly including the CFB playoff committee) make judgments and decisions based on those media-generated narratives. That's why some of us care what the national media "think" (or rather, what narratives they manufacture).

    I'm telling you your schtick can be used against you.
