OSU Path to the Playoffs

While I understand this is a high school forum, most posters on here are crazy about OSU football, therefore........

New Pope's Path to Playoffs for OSU....
updated late Saturday night Nov 25th


This weeks meaningful results.......

OSU pounds "the team up north".................. GOOD
Miami loses to Pitt (aka Pitiful Panthers).........GOOD
ND loses to Stanford....................................GOOD
Bama loses to Auburn..................................NOT GOOD

WHAT WE NEED NOW........

OSU pounds Wisconsin in B10 championship
TCU beats Oklahoma in Big 12 championship

Final Four........

SEC champ (Auburn/Georgia winner)
SEC at large - Alabama
ACC champ (Clemson/Miami winner)
B10 champ.......... THE Ohio State University

Pope's Path to Playoffs for OSU path.......

1) OSU punishes the team up north

2) OSU does a repeat performance of 59-0 B10 title game win over Wisconsin from a few years back

3) Bama runs the table in SEC (SEC gets 1 team, all others 2+ losses)

4) Miami beats Clemson in ACC title game (ACC 1 team, others 2+ losses)

5) Oklahoma rolls in Big 12 (B12 1 team, all others with 2+ losses)

And there's your 4 teams.......
1) Bama
2) Miami
3) Oklahoma
4) OSU
No matter the results, if OSU makes it this year, it crushes the system. I do believe they are 1 of the top 4 teams....but, they sucked twice...so, they get to watch this year.

Your final 4 would have been awesome if the Buckeyes had taken care of business in IOWA.

If the "what-ifs" listed in the OP happen, who would be a more deserving #4?

Miami would really have to lay one on Clemson, as they would still be a committee favorite with two losses if it was close

Until they consider the $. Then it's sorry, Clemson.

The system is rigged.........

AND many thought OSU was undeserving a few years back, but how'd that work out?
With an ncaa championship for tOSU

OSU making the final four would not be a good thing. Two bad losses in a year is enough. Then Urban can take a long hard look at the play calling.

Even as an OSU fan, I couldn't justify them getting the nod over a Two-loss Clemson team. The defending National Champs who blanked OSU last year.

Except itís not last year....they arenít QBíd by DeShaun Watson who lit up Bama, and then the NFL this year until hurt. Also missing their defensive leader (although Lawrence and Wilkins are very good).

OSU would have a conference championship and a similar resume. A loss to a playoff team and a bad loss. It would be a debate but OSU would be coming off victories over top 25 teams in three out of four games, and one would be against a top five opponent.

But, it could happen.

Good points. I'd just give the National Champs the nod over all other two-loss teams and a chance to defend their title. That's how I'd vote anyway. Just my opinion.

Crushed at home to Oklahoma, crushed by Iowa. Not a top 4 team. Period! Quit begging!

The more I think of it, the best fit for OSU would be a Miami upset to a woefully anemic Pitt Panthers. Then lose to Clemson. A 2 loss Miam8 [especially late in the year] would knock them out. They won't get the benefit of the doubt due to the Canes doing their Earle Bruce impression the past decade or so.

Also nice if USC loses in the PAC 'ship and ND losing to Stanford

Per number crunching geeks at 538.com

If tOSU beats the team up north AND beats Wisconsin in the B10 title game, OSU will have a 65% chance of being a playoff team!

They aren’t a top 4 team. IOWA scored 55 on them. 55!!!
No chance.

OSU has a better than average chance of making the playoffs. One, a two loss Clemson team, with a bad loss to Syracuse and no conference championship, will not get a playoff nod over the bucks. Two, anybody that things the humans on the playoff committee are not making a business decision when they pick these four teams might want to look back to last year when the buckeyes and their huge fan base got the bid over the big ten champs who beat them during the regular season.

I agree with you, but I still think they have a good chance of making the cut.

Could you imagine how bad Alabama would beat OSU 70-7?

But OSU has the dumbest fans

Even if you hate or love OSU if the results in the first post of this thread happen they will be in the playoff whether you agree with it or not. Clemson would not get in over OSU because they would not be a conference champ. There are still a lot of "what ifs" so I would wait to see how it plays out.

Why does that matter this year, but not last ?

True, OSU didn't even play in the big ten title game last year and got a bid based upon name recognition. I like how all of you Bucknuts are ASSuming that you guys will just crush Michigan and roll Wisconsin in the title game! One game at a time young buckeyes. They won't make it back across the state boarder without a 3rd loss come Saturday. Then you fools will have to come up with a scenario where a 3 loss buckeye team deserves to get in.

Very little, but if the sun keep rising in the east and setting in the west.... tomorrow I'm expecting it to once again rise in the east and set in the west.
Likewise, if for the past 60 years of my life, Colerain Ave has been littered with pawn shops, payday lenders, liquor stores, and check cashing stores..... tomorrow, I'm not expecting Colerain Ave to look like my neighborhood of Indian Hill, surrounded by beautiful homes, beautiful women, country clubs, polo fields, tennis courts, fine dining, etc
