I think Clemson has caked-walked the entire season, still struggled with an unranked UNC and should have to do more than what they’ve done to even be in the playoffs. 

Yet a couple days ago you said you think Clemson would solidly beat OSU... That doesn't make sense to me.

OSU is gonna realize those wins against a beaten Wisconsin team, a beaten Penn, a beaten Minnesota just didn’t give them the sense of what they were going up against from an SEC team or Clemson. OSU will get solidly beat. 

You are saying that a team you think hasn't even done enough yet to earn a spot in the playoffs and struggled against an unranked team would solidly beat one of the most statistically dominant, well-rounded teams college football has seen in years? 

If you think Clemson would solidly beat OSU and you think Clemson should be ranked outside the top 4, wouldn't that also mean based on your logic that OSU would have to be ranked (in your rankings) outside the top 4 and be below Clemson?

I think Lawrence would be a handful for OSU. Clemson is a bit hard to analyze because they’ve done it before ..play virtually no one then win the big ones. OSU has more impressive wins than Clemson. I’m just talking how I ‘see’ things from watching games. It’s college football and like pretty much all sports it’s all a guess. Statistically speaking OSU deserves to be ranked above Clemson. I just think the ‘mojo’ would favor Clemson against OSU. And like the video said, it’s hard to compare teams from different conferences. I don’t think Oregon should be selected. I think if they played OSU right now it’d be a total blow out and boring.

The only way Ohio State loses a big ten game this year is if they beat themselves. They are far more talented than any other big ten team. We'll see how good they are if they make the playoff. I don't think (again unless they play poorly) Penn State or *ichigan are good enough to stay within 17-20 points.

I agree. I almost feel sorry for Penn State. Young is gonna be hungry.

If you've ever screamed 'GO FOR IT!' at your TV on fourth-and-1 or shook your head as your school decided not to go...

@saevel25, @klineka this is pretty cool and has some good stats as well. 

Nice that is cool. I got 6/7 correct, I only missed the first question, but I think they should have mentioned how much time was left in the 4th quarter as that likely would have affected my answer. Scoring a TD and making it an 8 point game with 13 minutes left in the 4th quarter is entirely different than scoring a TD to bring it within 8 with 3-4 minutes left in the 4th quarter.

Man, if OSU could have held onto the ball then it would have been very ugly for PSU. 

I give PSU credit, their run defense is pretty good. I felt like OSU should have thrown it more.

Completely agree. But I also think despite OSU not covering the spread it actually showed how good this team is and better than previous seasons. They made the kind of errors that cost them games against Purdue and Iowa...yet they made them against a 9-1 Penn State team and still won.

Georgia didn’t look so good against A&M. They’re always a tough team to play at home but damn...one TD. You’re not gonna beat the top 6 teams with FGs.

Top 4 do not change this week...Oregon is a bye bye, BAMA stays at 5, and who cares about the rest of them.

Big things could happen this week though.  OSU and Michigan (upset in the making), LSU better not sleep on A&M, Georgia could not show up and still beat Ga Tech, and BAMA better come to play or War Eagles will end their season.

With one-loss Power 5 contenders Georgia, Alabama, Utah, Oklahoma, Minnesota and Baylor all winning Saturday, the debate over No. 1 should be the biggest question facing the 13-member College Football Playoff selection committee this week, but Oregon's loss at Arizona State opens the door wider for all of them on Selection Day. Georgia lost to SC, Alabama to LSU, Utah to USC, OU to KSU, Minnesota to PSU, and Baylor to OU. So Alabama, Minnesota and Baylor have losses to ranked teams. OU will play Baylor for the Big12 conf ( I've never liked this about the Big12, playing a team twice.) They thought they were crafty when they reorganized the Big12 to where every team plays each other, seems like a good idea, but then when they awarded the bonus of winning a conference championship that kinda screwed things up. If Baylor beats OU in the Big12 CC, ok, so they're 1-1. I mean what's better than analyzing  two teams' resumes than a head to head match? Anyway, I'd love to see OU get the 4th spot but with their defense I don't think they'd make it. I also think they should pass on Utah. I think if Utah played any of the top 5 teams they'd get destroyed. Now if OSU loses to Michigan ( they won't) that will really shake things up. It's been a great season so far!

Yet OSU as a team still ran for 229 yds and 2 TDs and rushed for more yards on their opening drive (~91) than Penn State had allowed per game so far this season prior to playing the Buckeyes (~75). 

The thing that stood out to me was the Buckeyes defense. Without the the turnover from OSU which gave Penn State short fields, OSU's defense only gave up 10 points from full length drives. OSU's defense only allowed 99 rushing yards and 128 passing yards while only allowing 1 play to go for more than 20 yards the entire game. Pretty impressive performance IMO.

I also think Day prepared for worse weather. On Wednesday and Thursday the weather was going to be maybe snow and rain during the entire game. It turned out to be just a small bit of rain in the third quarter.

Yeah pretty unlikely. But should they get through their playoff game it would certainly make for a good game against OSU. I wish we could see Clemson have to play somebody prior to the playoffs. But yeah I'd like Dabo to take a hit.

    • I had just a stretch day yesterday and overall felt pretty good, so I decided to go back to the range to hit some drill PWs, just so I could do some disciplined work on my swing and build some momentum hopefully towards lasting change. Keep in mind, I can't even break 90 right now. Not because of putting and short game which IMO are perfectly fine (for example, I shot an under par round at the Jupiter Lighthouse mini-golf course recently), but because I would just hit so many awful full swing shots, there's simply no way it would happen right now. The good news is, the range is a magical place for me despite all the frustrations that come with trying to change one's swing.  So face-on looks perfectly fine to me right now, especially given the scores I anticipate I would shoot if I stepped on the course:   BTW, I hope everyone is cool with vertical video. I used to poo-poo it, but since I read the site a lot on my phone, vertical vids are actually preferred for me, but I can stop doing that if it's frowned upon still. But yea, I know that's a drill swing, but it seems like it's fine given my ability level. DTL however is a bit of a different story. This is more or less a full swing. Well close enough anyway:   Yea, not as promising looking as FO is. That said, after I left I went to grab a bite, and while watching some swings at the table while waiting for my food I noticed this: Elbow shifts behind me in transition which probably is compromising some of what I'm trying to do. And I don't do it in softer drill swings. From that nice DTL driver swing from Monday: And I'm not necessarily trying to copy Tiger, but he's such a good model for so many things, I'm just going to remind myself what he looks like at this point too:   I will say, working my swing again has been both totally frustrating, totally fascinating, and a lot of fun 😄. It's interesting how on drill swings the elbow doesn't shift behind me, but it does on full swings. It's definitely something I need to pay attention to if I want the kinds of elbow positions that make it easier to swing the club on plane. I know Rory McIlroy and others have weird elbows and stuff and are fine, but since I'm such a crap golfer, I think it's probably a good idea to apply some conscious thought to this so it gradually goes away with practice and time. I'm otherwise still working on the same things: Steep shoulder pitch in backswing, dip torso in early downswing, bring arms down faster relative to the body, open/slide/extend knees and hips, and now... don't let my trail elbow shift behind me in the transition.  Hopefully I feel good enough to get back out to this range in a couple days. I got a two hour PT session though in an hour with some BFR therapy so hopefully I get through that well given how sore I am at the moment lol. Baby steps continue....
    • I tend to follow my surroundings and flow with the course (if I have played it before) and don't bother with how long I take to setup. If nothing is rushed, then I am not rushed. I don't sit in the car too long or take a large amount of time getting my gear ready. I judge accordingly, but I really don't like to be rushed. I pay my hard earned money to play just like the next person does. It doesn't take long to setup my equipment and put my shoes on. I am always reasonably well prepared before I even get to the course so if need be, I can be quick on the go. I believe it is all about respect to people and fellow golfers in general. Of course there are those that carry great disrespect for others and could give a rip about anything which usually bring challenges to what may be a good golf game.  Some weeks ago, me and a buddy played a course and there was a foursome that were in front of us at the first Tee that actually warmed up and stretched on the Tee box delaying those behind them! There were no less than two groups waiting behind us. After quite a wait and seeing this was not going to change, we decided to start on the 10 hole and while we drove the cart over to 10 (we could see #1 tee box from 10) and got set up on the tenth hole we could see they still had not finished. What is really bad is we tee'd up and drove our balls and two of them were still not finished!
    • One thing I will add is if your swing speed is 80-82 with a 6 iron, I doubt u hit it 196. Hit outside and check some more places for launch etc... but don’t do anything to the clubs yet.
    • I’m a believer in the arms being responsible for a lot of swing speed, but yes. It feels a lot less ‘movement’ was able to generate good power. However I began to think that my actual SS wasn’t really improving. It was the quality of strike. My conventional swing can be all over the face with an in to out and out to in path ( more likely out to in). With this swing I was almost always in to out and near the middle of the club face. So I think I was just hitting better shots. Again, JV would never provide any data from himself nor any students showing increases in SS.  I don’t have a problem with having a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 swing. It’s the ‘10’ different that seemed ridiculous to me. I’ll never use a 4i to hit the ball 20yds.
