Youre joking right? It's not like Hubbard came out of nowhere by playing in the bowl game, NFL executives are well aware who he is. Billy Price, likely first center picked in the draft, played last night...at a much more physically demanding position. Oh the horror!

He gave the staff a realistic expectation that he would play. Travel costs seem more than reasonable.

Again, I have no problem with him skipping the game. Waiting until just before kickoff to announce it was pretty low-rent though, TBH.

School pride is getting the best of you here, Iím afraid.

So, what difference does a kid being torn make, really ? C'mon. Maybe a friend showed him a video of Willis MacGahee's last college game ? Or even Teddy Ginn's ? At least those were for all the marbles. I just like the kid. I happen to know him, but it makes no difference to me where he went. Fournette or McCaffery would be rendered the same opinion from me.

He could have defected to a Fisheater Academy like Shaun Crawford did and I'd feel no differently. Go NTYF!!

Big Ten 7-0!

SEC 1-4.

Big Ten should have 2 teams in playoffs this year. Alabama and Georgia should have been replaced by Big Ten schools.

I can see why Alabama scheduled Mercer and Fresno St. They had to beefen up the schedule against the cupcake SEC teams.

Whether you're a high 1st rd. pick or low 1st rd. or 2nd rd. pick you are going to be a millionaire. Barkley who some believe will be the top pick overall played for PSU. Some players want to play that last game with their teammates and some value the money more. I just personally appreciate that players like Hubbard played that last game, what some people consider a meaningless bowl game.

As usual, Iíve watched a bunch of bowl games again this year. The only one that really disappointed me was Toledo not showing up against Appalachian State. I enjoy watching the different styles, the different approaches, the conference differences, the players giving great effort, etc.
I like the atmosphere of college football. Will I continue to watch bowl games? You bet! If they expand the playoffs will I watch? You bet!

Ok. I respect the opinion. If you feel that way it is all well, and good. On the other hand witj the 4 team playoff in effect now, a lot of other people just feel watching those other bowl games, are just a bunch of glorified exhibition matxhups. When I watch these games, I just don't see the intensity much in sime of the he kids

Apologize for pointing out the hole in your logic? There is plenty of tape already on Hubbard. NFL execs didn't change their mind based on his work vs a bad o-line.

Bad matchup for Ohio State. They're strong defensively across the DL and in the secondary. Iowa took advantage by throwing to the TEs and RBs for the majority of the game. They also ran the ball effectively, which opened up their play action game. Ohio State's playcalling did suck, but JT turning the ball over 4 or 5 times didn't help either.

These two posts were #173 an #175 on this thread. It's funny how divided Buckeye fans are on Barrett. The majority that I know are happy for him, but also happy his career is over.

Who? Ohio State? No they don't. They have a chance to finish top 3, maybe.

Everyone knows they should've been in the playoff but for the committees hard on for Saban and Alabama. Herd sucks at QB for Alabama so if that's the metric they don't belong there either.
If by everyone you mean biased, Ohio State homers. Then yes, you're right. Most people correctly believed they were out due to the Iowa loss.

Many more used the number 2, as in two losses. Specifically the 31-poit loss to Iowa. Anything said about Clemson was secondary to the actual season this year's Buckeye squad had.

Good God man, take off the scarlet and grey glasses. Stomped? You mean how Alabama led 14-10 after their opening drive of the 3rd quarter. Or how the Tide led 14-13 until just before the 3-minute mark of the 3rd. It was 20-14 going to the 4th Qtr.

Also, of Auburn's 3-losses, two of them were to CFP Semifinalists and Power 5 Conference Champs (both basically on the road also, one at Death Valley and one in the new Georgia Dome).

Two of their top criteria if the two teams are "comparable." People always forget that part. Alabama lost one game on the road to a Conference Champion Finalist in Auburn. Ohio State lost twice. Once by 31 on the road to 7-5 Iowa and once to Oklahoma at home. y2h keeps saying Auburn stomped Iowa, I guess that means Oklahoma stomped Ohio State also.

This win over USC will not count towards next year's Buckeye resume. I guess you're right in that it doesn't leave a bad taste like the Clemson loss, but that didn't keep Ohio State out of the Playoff this year, the loss to Iowa did.

Quote:
The game was a microcosm of the OSU season: outstanding DL play, erratic DB play, solid O-line play and mediocre QB play. KO off coverage was freakishly good and the Bucs didn't shoot themselves in the foot with dumb penalties. All in all a very workmanlike win.
Spot-on. OSU had a championship caliber defense (sans one game), but their offense is/was always going to hold them back.

Quote:
So now Bucs fans need to keep rooting for the B1G in the upcoming Bowl Games. Today there are two games that would look great in the B1G win column. Currently the conference sits at 5 - 0 with the champ having won big against the Pac 12 champ. If the B1G can win most of the rest of their bowl games and you combine that with last nights solid victory, Ohio State goes into the off season as a top 4 team with an inside track to the playoffs. I also suspect that as good as Barret has been statistically and in the overall win column, OSU opponents will be leery of the Bucs offense next year with two QB options that can throw the ball DOWNFIELD accurately. OSU should be much more dangerous offensively next year.
Since I'm not a big OSU guy I wouldn't know about either QB option and their ability to throw the ball downfield, but it all comes down to what Cabe was saying, it all comes down to what Meyer lets the OC do with the offense. Herman was the last OC that Urban trusted completely to do whatever was needed to move the ball (see Cardale Jones' run).

I always laugh at this one also considering he didn't finish two of those games. Sure he never lost to Michigan, but HE only beat them twice. This year, when he left the game they were losing.

I am an Ohio State fan ... and they did not deserve to make the playoffs ... it is hard to overlook a 31 point loss ... but am also not sure Alabama did either, but they were probably the best choice of two bad choices.

I'm of the opinion that there were only three "obvious" playoff selections with no one really deserving of the fourth slot. This would have been a good year to shove an undefeated non-power 5 team in UCF in.

As far as talks of next year, I find it interesting that many seem to be discounting entirely the idea of Martell being the QB. He is the best suited of those on the roster to run Meyer's RO and QB power schemes. I wouldn't be shocked if he wins the job over the summer or replaces Haskins/Burrow by mid-season if Meyer insists on running the JT offense. The theoretical success of those guys is predicated on Meyer allowing Wilson to call a more pro-style game.
