Because OSU has been moved above OU despite getting humiliated by them at their last meeting...and since then starting this season off with a pack of cupcakes. MSU was blown out today by Wisconsin...and they were ranked 24 when OSU beat them..so that win’s worthless. Cincinnati? Lol!!! Come on man. Texas was ranked #11 and OU beat them away. That’s better than any win OSU has this season...period. I agree about Clemson...but they did win the NC and have kept their spot (undeservingly). But seriously...MSU/Cincinnati? That’s a classic Big10 over hype. Surely you chuckled when you wrote that. It’s all for fun...really....we’ll see in the end what happens. But I guarantee you OSU will be in for a rude awakening if they think MSU/Cincinnati proves their worthiness. LSU over Florida..better than anything OSU has done. Cincinnati...lol....sorry...I just can’t get over that.

Though it kills me to say this, OSU is better than LSU...  and we learned today where Florida resides versus LSU. The only saving grace is that I genuinely think Wisconsin can beat Ohio State.    It’s still early, and lots could happen, but one of them plays for the national championship… 

 Go Badgers!

 The Aggies are 3-3 with losses to Clemson, Auburn and the Crimson Tide. From here, A&M has road games against Georgia and LSU, along with another three SEC matchups with Ole Miss, Mississippi State and South Carolina.

imagine OSU...or any Big10 team having that to look forward to. Never happen. Gotta find a way to keep OSU up there.

Oh David...David...based on what? Their Cincinnati win? LSU just cleanly beat the #7 ranked team. OSU beat.....#24..then...who just got humiliated by Wisconsin. OSU will get their asses handed to them in the playoffs.

So any team that loses to those three are a good team? That is doesn't fly. 

ESPN FPI rankings
Ole Miss - 50th
Miss. St - 27th
S. Carolina - 25th

OSU probably beats all three of them by over 14 points. Just saying. Only one of those teams is a top 25 team, and just barely. 

OSU probably beats Clemson right now. They would have a 50/50 shot against Alabama. They probably beat Auburn. So what, 6-1 with a single loss against Alabama. Sounds about right.

 Good grief, you can’t really be saying that Ohio State should be concerned about Ole Miss, Mississippi State and South Carolina?! Or for that matter, Georgia which just lost to a low ranked team.  😱

Way over 14 points.  And all 3 combined don’t score 20 points against Wisconsin.

OSU wasn’t worried about Iowa or Purdue either.

Nor are they today. The only team they’re worried about right now is Wisconsin.

OSU has a 17th remaining SOS. 
OU has a 24th remaining SOS.
Alabama has a 41st, Clemson has a 72nd (garbage).

Sagarin keeps his rankings up to date. His calculations would always hammer OSU back in the Tressel era for weak scheduling

http://sagarin.com/sports/cfsend.htm

OSU has a better SOS than all but one of the top 10 teams.

You mean two years ago? Who is still on that team the played in that game? 

What can you say about the year before that when OSU went into OU's stadium and crush them. Can we go three years back? 

That argument I garbage in college football. Rankings should be based on week to week, not what they did last year. 

You are not even considering how dominate OSU was over those teams. OSU put up more points in one quarter against MSU than they allowed on average all year! One QUARTER!. 

Your argument is similar to Jack being better than Tiger. You are not even taking into account how dominant they have been. 

Also, their schedule stacks up with every other team in the top 10.

Couldn't have said it any better myself.

Still waiting to hear what wins Alabama, Oklahoma, and Clemson have had this season prior to today's games (since their current rankings are based on their results before today's games) that justifies their spots in the rankings.

Alabama and Oklahoma hadn't even played a ranked team prior to this week, but yeah that totally makes sense that OSU is the only team with the cupcake schedule  :hmm:   (even though the data around strength of schedule clearly suggests otherwise and has been pointed out to you multiple times in this thread)

Guys. To be real about it. ...

Ohio State has to run the table to be involved. Wisconsin is the same way. We hate to lose to TTUN. That's always a priority, but the Wisconsin game should mean playoffs or not.

I'd reckon that Oklahoma (which I assume is @Vinsk's team) probably has to run the table as well. Texas was the best team on their schedule.

 I’m still not sure how Oklahoma didn’t lose today. But, a win is a win… 

 So, who is number one this week? The argument could certainly be may be made for LSU…

The rest remain about the same. Oklahoma goes to five and Wisconsin to six.

While you're probably right, don't forget about what happened in 2014. If OSU were to lose to Wisconsin in a very close game in 2 weeks but then win out and beat a likely then ranked top 5 Wisconsin team by a good margin in the Big Ten championship game, that could potentially be enough to get them in depending on what other teams do, especially since LSU and Alabama still have to play against each other in the regular season and one of them wouldn't even be in the SEC championship game.

The exact same could be said for OSU beating Wisconsin in 2 weeks and then Wisconsin subsequently winning the Big Ten championship game…

Sacking Ehlinger 9 times and holding him to -9 yards isn’t too lackluster. Everything has to be considered when judging these teams. OU finally showed some trace of defense. As of right now Clemson laid a big egg in their dismal play against NC. Neither OU, OSU, Alabama, LSU has laid an egg.

With of course the switch with OU/OSU I can agree with this. A question is with who’s the best one loss team and should they be above PSU? Notre Dame’s one loss is to Georgia...which just got made worse for them. Georgia’s loss is devastating...but they beat ND. I think both Georgia and ND would beat PSU. Wisconsin won’t beat OSU. I think OSU is tired of the fluke syndrome (Purdue and Iowa) and they’ll make damn sure that doesn’t happen again leaving WI as their strongest road block. Poor MI won’t stand a chance.

I am no college football fan, but didn't ND just barely get by an unranked USC?

    • The problem is not hitting different types of shots or adjusting.  The problem is conditions can vary from one foot to the next.  In the situation I was, it would well have been possible that the condition of the sand where the ball was and your feet were would be completely different.  It makes judging what you are going to do nigh on impossible. I am OK with people hitting different shots from the same situation.  That is what makes golf great. I am also OK with challenges. What I have a problem with is conditions being bad due to insufficient maintenance.  I would rather have a course with other alternatives, even if it is a hazard, than an area that is supposed to be playable, but isn't.  To give you an example, my home course is built on a paddy field.  We still get land crabs digging holes on the course.  The understandable decision, a local one, has been made to offer relief from the crab holes on the course
    • I hate it if random strangers ask me if they can join. I always lose my composure. I said "no" a few times and explained why, but they always give  me glimpse like I murdered their first born.   I played a 109 today. For some of you outrageously high, for me a very good round. 😎 Played better than my provisional handicap.
    • Now that my season is done, I would like to reflect. My driving Fairway Hit % in the beginning of the year was less than 40%, to end the year it was 63.5%. My target goal was 65%, and if you remove the drives before I got my new driver it moves up to 66.4%, but that is cheating myself. I need to improve this stat. My average GIR was 7.8. This is bad, I really need to improve this. However, my best rounds of the year were all over 12 GIR, which shows that when I’m on my game, I’m hitting greens.  My Average score on par 3’s was 4.186. I really need to improve my par 3 play. My average par 5 score was 5.546. I’m not mad about this, but considering my length off the tee and with irons, I would want this to be at or under 5. My average par 4 score was 4.915 This is just abysmal. I shouldn’t be averaging nearly a bogey on par 4’s.  My average score in tournaments was an 89. 75. My average score out of tournaments was an 80.66. My goal for tournaments was 85 or better and my goal outside tournaments was under 80. I hit neither. These are the only stats I keep at the moment. I had a few rounds in the 90’s and 2 rounds over 100. The 90+ and 100+ scores were all in tournaments, save for one round of 91 I shot on my schools course. All in all, my short game improved a ton, my  iron ply improved a ton, my driving was the biggest overhaul, and my mid range wedges gained a fair amount of accuracy and consistency. I don’t feel I’m far off of being in the 70’s or better. I typically give myself plenty of birdie attempts, and I can recover well. 
    • Last day of the year for golf. Ended it kind of sadly.  Long story short, I was 2 over through 15, had about 5 birdie putts that I missed, made 2 birdies, had about 4 insane recovery chips that I still don’t understand how I pulled off, and 4 bogeys that honestly shouldn’t have happened. 2 were 3 putts from on the green, one was trying a stupid hero shot and drilling a tree, and the last one was a flubbed chip.  16 Tee I wildly miss the fairway with my fairway wood. It stings extra bad missing the fairway when you try to lay up, so I let it get in my head and decided to try yet another hero shot, drilled a tree and back into the fairway. Gun the yardage, 154 about an extra 10 uphill, so about 164. Torn between an 8 and a 7. My 8 goes about 164 max in the warm if I really up my tempo, and my 7 typically carries 178 in the warm, so I decided to play it safe and grip down on a 7 iron and flight the ball higher in the air so it carries shorter and stops better. Proceed to fly the green by about 10 yards because I absolutely poured the ball. Lose the ball in long grass behind green, return to previous shot, penalize myself for losing a ball and grab an 8 iron, then proceed to come up well short. You can see where I’m going with this. Finish with an 8. Now 6 over through 16, Finish 3 putt double bogey, and then par to shoot 80.  Oh well, shit happens sometimes. Up until that point I was playing well. 11 GIR is a pretty good stat, but 11 GIR and only 7 being par or better is not good.   Edit: looked at scorecard and realized i actually shot double bogey, then par to finish. Kind of stings worse.
