OSU and who in the Title Game??

18 posts in this topic

what do people think on this?? I think OSU for sure. The other team who knows. I do think Hawaii deserves some talk as they are unbeaten. Does LSU jump Georgia?? WHo gets in the BCS other than OK from the Big 12?? Now MIZZ and Kansas know what it's like being Michigan or OSU and losing your last game. I even think USC deserves some mention but my gut says it will OSU and LSU tonight when the computer does it's voodoo.

I would agree with you that it will most likely be LSU that meets ohio state in New Orleans. Kansas only has one loss, but they get the shaft because it was so late in the season. Ohio State almost suffered this same fate, but through a series of miracles they are back in the 'ship. Kansas will still get a BCS bowl though. I think USC is pretty much a lock for the rose bowl. All in all a very goofy year, definetly makes something like a four team playoff sound like a good idea.

Imagine how fun it would be too see an 8 team playoff this year? All 8 teams would be fairly equal! The way college football goes about crowning a national champion is one reason why i can't get into it as much as other sports. Its not a true champion. I mean, voters and computers making the decision who plays? How bout settling it on the field. Kansas loses its last game of the year and because of that some 2 loss team that had both losses earlier in the year might get into the big game? Let Kansas, LSU, USC, and teams like Oklahoma make the decision on the field rather that the media.

surely you mean "THEE O S U"

I was just telling the wife how the 8 team playoff would be awesome. 1st round near X-MAS, 2nd Near NEW YEAR, Championship the week after. And you could still have all the other bowl games. I do think they worry about burning the kids out though as the champs would play 2 more games than they do currently.

But, if I had to pick 2 I say Sooners vs. THEE OSU

I must admit-- as much as I hate the BS., I think they got the two teams right. LSU will be playing a glorfied home game, I can see the line in Vegas at around LSU -5.

Hopefully the Buckeyes will show up this year....

Implementing a playoff system would actually be quite easy. Use the bowls that are already in place…though some teams might lose out, because now some teams are getting two and three bowls, it leaves another half dozen teams out. So…the NCAA can get a few new bowls somewhere.

The final BCS top eight, in order:

1. Ohio State

2. LSU

3. Va. Tech

4. Oklahoma

5. Georgia

6. Missouri

7. USC

8. Kansas

In a playoff system, the BCS is not discarded…it is still used for seedings, and for the all-important 8th playoff team. You will still have controversy…for example, as it stands, unbeaten Hawaii is at #10 and would be left out of an 8-team playoff.

So a normal playoff format would have 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, and 4 vs 5. So, our first round – bracketed - is:

Ohio State vs Kansas.

Oklahoma vs Georgia

LSU vs USC

Va Tech vs Missouri

The first round would be played mid-December, taking away the long gap in college football games. Assign these games to different bowls. Cotton, Sugar, whichever ones you want…except for the final three games…

When you get down to the final four, your last three games are the Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Rose Bowl. Assign them however you want; rotate them from year to year; whatever. The semi-finals are played on Christmas weekend (along with a few other ‘lesser’ bowls) with the Championship Game on New Years Day (again, along with whatever other ‘lesser’ bowls you want to include).

The upside…every team with a case for a shot at the National Championship – with the possible exception of Hawaii – is in. The downside…the winners end up having to play two extra games to get to the national championship.

I've actually taken it one step farther as I believe it should be a 16 team bracket. All other levels have a 16 team format so no reason why the top level can't as well. I'd set mine up a bit differently than just taking the top 16 though.

There are 11 major conferences in Division 1-A. I would give each conference champion a spot in the playoffs and then invite the top 5 BSC ranked teams who are not conference champions. Benefits of a 16 team format include:

1- Results in a true #1 champion

2- No argument can be made from the mid-level conferences saying they don't get a chance at being a national champion. Remember there was threat of litigation against the NCAA a few year back because the situation then basically shut out any opportunity for mid level teams to play in the BCS game. It was that reason a 5th BCS game, which is our current National Championship game, was added.

3. It still allows 5 strong non conference winners in the playoffs.

4. Non playoff teams would still be allowed to participate in lower level bowls.

This would be my seeding for this season:

1. Ohio State v. 16. Florida Atlantic

8. Kansas v. 9. West Virginia

5. Georgia v. 12. Florida

4. Oklahoma v. 13. BYU

6. Missouri v. 11. Arizona State

3. Va. Tech v. 14. Central Florida

7. USC v. 10. Hawaii

2. LSU v. 15. Central Michigan

I think LSU is going to run right over Ohio State. OSU shouldn't even be there, IMO. They played fewer games than anyone else, so they lost fewer. If the Big 10 won't have a conference championship, they should have one more game on their schedule. Just my two cents.

Sugar Bowl game against Georgia.

I'm sure they are disapointed being undefeated and not having a shot at the Natinal Title.

At least Georgia is a good match up for them. I watched 3 Hawaii games this year on tv, their high powered offense is fun to watch.

Who did Hawaii get in the bowl game?


I'll give you the short and long answer to it.

The short answer is Hawaii got into a BCS bowl by being ranked in the top 12 of the final BCS poll.

Here's the long answer to the best of my ability: It's all about MONEY.

A few years back the major conferences got together and set up the BCS in an effort to bring together the "two best teams" for a championship game. Well this was all fine and dandy for the major conferences, but it in essence eliminated any school from say the WAC, MAC, etc. from having a chance at either a National Championship or being an at large invitee to a BCS game. The only non BCS team that had an in was Notre Dame, which at the time would get a BCS bid if they were ranked in the top 8. Well with an estimated payout of $14-17 million for a BCS bowl, you can see why the non-BCS conferences were a bit upset, so they threatened litigation against the NCAA and BCS. Of course the major conferences didn't like the thought of losing revenue to a non BCS school. As a result a 5th game was added which is now the National Championship game on top of the 4 BCS games already in place (Orange, Rose, Sugar, Fiesta). With the addition of the 5th game, provisions were put in place to allow on BCS schools an opportunity to get in. As longs as they are ranked in the top 12 of the final BCS standings they will get in. I believe there are other provisions as well, but that is the main one. Also, no conference is allowed more than 2 teams in a BCS bowl.

Jump forward now to the present:

Hawaii is ranked 10th in the BCS so they get in. You could break it down a bit more as to why which other schools did or didn't get in, but I've rambled on enough. If discussions warrant it, I'll add my thoughts there in another post.

By the way, the early line I saw was Georgia by 5.5. If I were in Vegas I'd take that and run as I see a blowout by Georgia, but stranger things have happened.

that's exactly what I and alot others though last year with Boise State and OK. The Wash team they beat after being down 21 twice, is not a bad team. Will they beat Georgia, likely not, But Georgia has not seen a off like HAW other than maybe FL, but Hawaii's QB is much better passer than TEbow.

        The two pairs shown are the classic adidas originals yeezy boost 350 shoes sale and the adidas Superstar 80s. Both will come with a White upper along with nubuck material with a snakeskin texture overlay. The Superstar will use leather across the heel tab and Three Stripes down the side which is dipped in Black. The Stan Smith will have perforated Three Stripes branding along with Green on the heel and tongue. Look closer at this adidas nmd r1 uk womens they feature a White Primeknit across the uppers while Glitch Camouflage is used on the base. In addition you will notice that there is multiple shades of Grey on the Three Stripes branding along with Japanese writing. Other details include more Grey on the heel and EVA pod overlays while White covers the Boost midsole and outsole. adidas yeezy 350 v2 uk sale While we have seen sneakers from all the brands in the NBA 2K series along with customizing your own pair, this will be the first time the Yeezy Boost will be available in the game. As of now, it isn’t known which pair will be available, but more than likely it will be either the 350 or 750 Boost. The adidas stan smith primeknit sale has been one of adidas Originals biggest sellers through the years and in our opinion, only ranks second from the retro line. Over the past months, we have seen the model evolve while using different material mashups but now we have something completely new. Here we introduce to you the?adidas Stan Smith ’24K Gold’.

        adidas originals campus 80s uk and size will debut two pairs of the adidas Superstar 80s while using a premium theme. The duo will feature tumbled leather along with tonal nubuck across the Three Stripes and heel. In addition, the trefoil logo seen on the leather tongue is laser engraved. One pair features White and Light Grey while the second comes in Black and White. The two are finished off with the traditional shell toe and White through the midsole. adidas samba adv uk sale My friend ended his story of Pablo with an event that took place at his high school and I think it really defines talent. Apparently Pablo had maneuvered around the defense brilliantly and was coming straight on to the goalie, and instead of trying to shoot the ball around the goalie - which would have been an easy shot - he just launched a rocket straight at him. The ball went off of the goalie's leg and into the net. That is how Red Pablo with his red Adidas sambas is remembered most. adidas zx flux primeknit black white So far two different colors have been introduced for the weather change, which comes in ‘Collegiate Navy’ and ‘Running White’. Both pairs are constructed with a mesh upper which allows for additional air flow while the midfoot strap is elastic to help the lockdown without the use of laces. The final touch is the addition to suede across the heel. Looking closer at this adidas nmd xr1 primeknit uk they feature a Utility Grey and Shock Pink color combination. Across the uppers is the use of Grey Primeknit while camouflage detailing runs throughout. White is used on the Boost midsole while the EVA pod overlays are done in Shock Pink and Grey. Completing the look is Black on the outsole.At the time of writing, a release date for the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Utility Grey Camo isn’t available however they are expected to launch during Summer 2017. Once released, retail price will be $170. Once we have more information, we will make sure to update you. Below you can check out additional images which will give you a better look. This adidas nmd primeknit black white comes dressed in a Legion Ink, Trace Blue and Gum Light Brown color combination. Blue covers the stretch mesh uppers while also applied to the Three Stripes branding, eyelets and back heel. Following we have White which is used for the Boost midsole. Completing the look is Gum that is applied to one of the EVA pod overlays and across the outsole.

        adidas originals extaball up trainers   is getting ready to launch a brand new model in 2016, but before they do that they will unveil the shoes on December 9th, 2015 which is Wednesday. Known as the ‘NMD’, this new pair will combine elements of some of their classic models like the 1984 Micro Pacer, 1986 Boston Super and the 1985 Rising Star. adidas gazelle og sale uk We are currently in the midst of a Gazelle renaissance. While more technical models in theadidas?arsenal might be hogging the limelight at present – namely the?Ultra Boost?and?NMD?– the time-tested Gazelle is holding its own and doing what the classic Three Stripe low-top does best, delivering lush materials and clean colourways. Keeping to this MO, the?Gazelle ‘Ostrich Pack’ delivers two tonal make-ups made of premium leather and nubuck. So why is this called the ‘Ostrich’ pack I’m sure you’re wondering? If you take a sneaky look at the medial-side branding, you’ll notice that it is made of exotic ostrich leather, with the bumpy hide adding a subtle textural pop. Following on from the mens adidas forum hi og casual shoes Wars Rebel Squadron Suprerstars we saw recently come this AT-AT walker inspired Forum Lo. Kind of like a mini version of the?AT-AT Pilot El Dorado?we saw last year, these feature a polar Hoth camo on the uppers and a ‘Hoth Blizzard Force’ AT-AT on the heel that harks back to the?Bill McMullen?AD-AT Shelltoe of a few years back. Available from?Sole Movement, thanks to?Nice Kicks?for the news. adidas adi ease premiere skate shoes This release of the Three Stripes’ UltraBOOST 3.0 sees the sneaker dressed down in a neutral ‘Trace Khaki’ colourway. The?Primeknit?upper wears the tan colour, with the typical mottled pattern flecked throughout the knitted build. The lacing system and heel counter feature a tonal variation of the same colour, giving the UltraBOOST a clean finish. Other than an understated aesthetic, these kicks are equipped with the full-length?BOOST?technology sole for a cushioned ride. adidas eqt running support 93 sale It looks like 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the EQT over at adidas. The recent?‘Turbo Red’ set?gave us plenty to look forward to and now, for those who aren’t inclined towards the many black options presented so far, they’re slipping?in a ‘Cargo Green’?EQT Support ADV?to bulk out the surplus. The shoe still features a few spots of ‘Turbo Red’, which sit comfortably alongside the olive green upper, while the black supports and white midsole tie the whole shoe together with precision.

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
