How do you put in a team that gave up 55 to Iowa? The SEC was much better at the top than the B10.

How do you put in a team that lost to Syracuse? Could play that game all day. But the point is, Alabama is pretty clearly the 3rd best team in their conference.

Really have no clue what to expect this game. Wisconsin has the best defense in the country statistically but I don’t see a good offensive team on their schedule. Kind of hope Haskins starts and we see a steady dose of Dobbins/Weber and deep balls ala Cardale Jones 3 years ago.

IF OSU beats Wisconsin, one of the four teams that gets in certainly will have big holes in its resume. Neither OSU or Alabama can complain about missing the CFP based on what they’ve done. With that said, as bad as OSU’s Iowa loss is, its hard to put in a team that has no big wins at all. At least if OSU beats Wisky and gets in, they’ve proven against Wisky and PSU they can beat top teams.

We’ll see if this is even a discussion after the game.

Committee gave Bama a solid by putting Fresno State at 25 and keeping Miss State at 23. Fresno has a rematch with Boise tonight.

I don't think that last point is unarguable. I say we just put three teams in if OSU wins

The committee says F it and puts UCF in

And yet OSU has 3 wins better than any single win Bama has. At some point, quality wins has to offset 2 losses IMO.

thoughts on Ohio State and the bowl games. The one prediction I have seen says OSU 34 - USC 30 and I say this will not get the job done. We need to blow USC away to prove that the committee made the wrong choice. A close game or a loss and we prove them right. Now last point having JT as the QB makes it hard to win big against a good team like USC. I really feel that the other 21 players make JT look as good as he does. There are QB's that carry a team that is not the case with JT.

I'm actually excited about this Cotton Bowl against USC. I love the "old school" matchup.

Darnold's stats are good, but not great. He actually has a pretty low TD-to-INT ratio, IMO.

I think the game mostly comes down to whether or not the Buckeyes DL can get as much pressure on Darnold as they did on Hornibrook. You have to give Schiano credit for the aggressive defensive game plan against Wisconsin, because it worked to perfection. The Badger offense basically did nothing most of the Big Ten Championship game.

USC gets healthy and Darnold puts up 42 on that awful OSU secondary. Hopefully OSU can score with USC

USC's offensive line is trash. Darnold should be running for his life all game.
