    Really enjoyed that video and there were great points made. I do agree the important take is at 29:21 regarding the model not being able to deal with fact that these teams are from different conferences. And historically ( history has shown as you said) OSU has not faired well against SEC teams. The video shows a good hypothetical but the fact remains OSU is 2-10 vs SEC in bowl games. Just lousy luck? Look, I’ve given more credit to OSU than you’ve realized. They are easily the best B1G team. Neither PSU nor MI have any chance to beat them. OSU deserves to be there more than OU for sure. It concerns me that OSU was kicking ass and taking names then got punked 31-0 by Clemson. I get it, that’s not this year. But that’s what fans do.. they forget that stuff and opponents live it up. I’m certainly more for seeing an OSU final than a damn SEC one. I hope they show up and prove to be they’re as good as the numbers show.
  2. Going home today! I’ll get a CT ABD next Thursday and JP drain removed and I’ll be good to go. Just some back rehab and I’m on my way....

    It’s subjective. I don’t care so much about OSU beating FAU by 100pts as I do another team beating a top ranked, high offense/defense by 7. Look at Tua. He’s obviously a great talent. But he’s also thrown with the protection of the best O line in the country. He’s got time, Space, and often open receivers. I will continue to downplay OSU’s wins the same way everyone else downplays Clemsons. Wisconsin and Cincinnati are the two ‘big wins, ranked wins’ they have over Clemson? . Not real impressed with that. And again @saevel25 don’t get so offended by the word ‘cupcake’ OSU has played plenty of them, period. That’s just the way it is. Every team plays cupcakes. OU, LSU, ALA. and certainly Clemson. You’re trying to analyze who’s beaten their cupcakes the best I simply don’t care about that. OU beats a ranked unbeaten Baylor and the attitude is ‘oh...well I guess Baylor wasn’t that good after all.’ And they only jump one spot. That’s typical Big12 screw over. it’s not the only thing but criminey @saevel25 don’t you think who a team has played and beaten is pretty significant as to where a team stands?

    Can’t say I agree completely with him. He’s a bit B1G biased obviously. Alabama has wins ! Against who?’ He’s stretching the value of OSU’s wins for sure. But that’s something like trying to debate a flat earther. Cincinnati and Wisconsin ( despite falling apart) will be held as incredible accomplishments and the greatest wins for all conferences. They weren’t. He’s really just trying not to say what everyone outside the B1G knows’ OSU has pummeled it’s cupcakes. They’ve allowed the lowest number of points scored ( against cupcakes) and their first hope of really getting a chance to shine was ruined when WI dropped their pants and showed they weren't that great. Then comes their second chance and again it’s spoiled by a loss beaten by a team assuming to be weaker than OSU themselves. The guy makes great points. But had OSU had the wins, WINS that LSU has...then he’s be wearing red and white and hailing OSU has the greatest team this century. Even you @saevel25 said you can’t argue that LSU shouldn’t be number one....yet this guy not only manages to do that but puts CLEMSON ahead of LSU? LOLOLOL. Absolute joke. Here’s the difference: “ OLE MISS putts up 400 rushing yards against LSU, ...rushing yards that shows a defense with holes.’ If OSU : “ OLE MISS...a fast a difficult offense to figure out, put up 400yds in rushing on OSU....yet OSU’s offense just kept it coming in and beat them with an easy win, Clemson hasn’t played anybody. OSU has played Wisconsin, Cincinnati LSU has played Florida, Auburn, Texas, Alabama. I gave you Cincinnati so I took Texas.

    3. Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State Total points: 25 (first-place votes: 0) Notable: Fields, who has put up video game-esque numbers all season, finally gets a chance to be taken more seriously in the race with Ohio State's game against Penn State on Saturday. For now, though, he continues to beat up on the Big Ten's bottom feeders, with Rutgers the most recent team to fall. Against the Scarlet Knights, Fields threw four TD passes and a career-high 305 yards. Gee, even the small media outlet of ESPN sees this.

    Exactly and I concede to that the same as I did in December 2016.

    You just don’t get it do you? Celmson is the National Champ. I’m not a Clemson fan at all. It’s a vibe, nothing more. But that vibe has been right before. Saying that last years results don’t mean anything is an asinine statement in the NCAA. Many players have come back as well as coaches . The playing styles are the same, their Individual strengths are there ((QB)). You seem like the find of fan who would love to lose to Clemson then go around pandering your charts saying how much better OSU is. Give it a rest. LSU or Clemson will beat OSU. They’re better teams.

    You guys were the ones who got all excited about OSU’s SOS, not me. Again you’re trying to cover the reality in dense charts and micro stastistics. Hell you're even now thinking OSU should be ranked about LSU? Why? Guys please stop with your hypocritical (who cares about past, noW show me historical data) dialogue. LSU has played and beaten 4 ranked teams . Two of them top 10. What is your argument against that? OSU: Has beaten two ranked teams currently none of them top ten. LSU has beaten the toughest defense in the country who was just ranked #1. Along with Florida. Auburn and Texas. It’s that simple giys. We can’t put every team under a Vegas microscope. If so they’re wouldn’t be fans, Just analyzers reporting the outcomes. LSU HAS PLAYED AND DEFEATES MUCH MORE STRONGER TEAMS THAN OSU HAS. Cincinatti is not a power win. The committee isn’t impressed with that. Wisconsin has lost their shine and now PSU has lost, and Minnesota. The only stat you guys keep coming back to is how impressively OSU has beaten their cupcakes. OSU has played JV teams 7/10. Stats can look reall pretty

    Exactly. And this was identical as before except OSU had a STRONGER team than this year and they got blitzed 38-0. No doubt Clemson has had a miserable schedule. But FAU, Rutgers, Maryland, Indiana, Nebraska, NW? Seriously? That’s 7 games SEVEN! Total garbage. And your OSU SOS was from the start of the season and has sense tanked due to PSU, Wis, and Minn all losing. So get off your SOS talk....OSU’s has worsened week after week. All the teams you have a clutch on to call your OSU a strong SOS have lost now and that SOS is now vanilla pudding.

    Which is the bulk of my comments. Why Clemson? because aside from their botched game against USC they show to be a better football team. Maybe you guys never played football and just don’t get it. And that’s fine. You don’t see the speed/ dynamics/ field play. You see TOP, 3rd down conversions and micro math. I don’t believe anywhere on this site it’s considered trolling to make a prediction on a team and it’s outcome. OSU will get humiliated once again. I have every right to say that and you’re getting butt hurt over that is your own issue. It’s just football. Lighten up.

    Not at all. B1G fans are known to being sensitive about their conference. People can have opinions without having to produce pages and pages of meaningless stats. You can turn your numbers and make Rutgers look like Big10 conference powerhouse. Fatcs: LSU HAS BEATEN 4 Top 10 teams. Period fact. Stop. No more numbers needed. OSU: has beaten one. OSU has beaten Cincinnati and Wisconsin. LSU: Texas/ Auburn/Florida/ Alabama OSU: Cincinnati/ Wisconsin How is this trolling? Your constant refusal to admit OSU has a mess of cupcakes is trolling. Maryland/Rutgers back to back weekends? OSU has faced what defense? Wisconsin? LSU faced the number one defense in the country. It’s not trolling at all. It’s. B1G fans not being able to look T their schedule and realize it pales compares to LSU’s. See B1G fans have always thought a win over Purdue by 35 is much better than beating a top ranked SEC team by 3. That’s just in their nature. It’s completely wrong but so be it. We’ll see when OSU gets throttled that my no statistical and analytical bs was in fact not needed. SEC/Clemson is just higher level of football. OSU’s great, very good club. But history Has shown ( and that’s important just ) that the B1G can’t put up in the big games vs SEC.

    1. LSU 2. OSU LSU Has far outperformed OSU this season. I don’t care what numbers you play with LSU has beaten FOUR top 10 teams to OSU’s one. There are three teams in the B1G that had hopes of padding OSU’s cupcake lined season, PSU, Mich(?), Wisconsin and the silly Minnesota. All of theses have lost their value. Michigan still a mystery. I appreciate the fan bias....but OSU is a far second from LSU. You can’t take stats generated from FUA, Maryland, Rutgers, Indiana, Cincinnati because those teams themselves have played nobody. That’s why Cincinnati went out playing bottom feeder teams and got all excited they were winning...then comes OSU..and it’s a blow out. It’s gonna be the usual outcome. 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. They’ll realize that 42-0 against the mighty Cincinnati was only impressive within the B1G.

    That’s not really how the Heisman works though. They do their best to avoid bias by spreading the eligible voters over the country, but even then there has been some obvious show of bias ( see article.) Running up stats against unranked teams has little influence on a Heisman candidate. Hell some voters will vote for a candidate just because they ‘like’ him. Anatomy of How to Win a Heisman Trophy Writing a football player's name in that coveted first spot on a Heisman ballot is a process that involves a lot of hand... Forgive me for any babbling as I’m on 4mg of Morphine. Surgery tomorrow morning. Thanks TST for giving me something to take my mind off this mess!
  14. Well bad news guys. I’m back in the hospital and after having a CT/Abd done not only do I have moderately displaced rib fractures at 8-9-10...but I have a bowel perforation with abscess. So, pretty shocked but so glad I decided to come back in. I knew something was wrong....Anyway...I’ll update when I can but probably be away for awhile. Cheers.

    True it was a freak accident. And I don’t put ‘blame’ necessarily on Saban. But I think it was a poor decision to keep him in. Football is a high risk injury sport and anytime you can in all probability afford to not play your star player when he’s young and has a huge career ahead of him AND he’s just recovered from an injury...you sit him. I’m remarking on this particular incident and not on how the general ‘play or not play’ is handled with players.
  16. Vinsk

    NCAA Football 2019

    Nor do you want to unnecessarily risk your young player being critically injured. Saban also wouldn’t have been criticized for taking Tua out of the game. Had tables started to turn ( they wouldn’t have) they could bring him back in. Yes, players want to play and they do just that. But when you have a high profile, NFL bound player who’s just recovered from an injury, and you’ve got your game won...you sit that kid.

    Great to hear Dr. Cain, the orthopedic doc on Tua’s case, say he expects full recovery. They were able to reduce the pelvis at the stadium prior to departure to the hospital. That’s some awesome Ortho work there. Other good news...OU came back from their largest deficit in school history (25pts) and beat Baylor.
  18. Vinsk

    NCAA Football 2019

    Just awful. They showed that clip where it was speculated that Tua was asking Saban to keep him in. Hindsight is 20/20 but damn..why the hell keep your QB in when the game is already had.

    Well...Tua’s out for the season with a hip dislocation, Georgia had a nice win against ranked Auburn, Minnesota lost to ranked Iowa ( always a scrappy team), we’ll see how good ranked Baylor is tonight against OU, OhioSt beat its cupcake, Clemson beat its cupcake, PSU squeaked by unranked Indiana. I’d like to see OhioSt/Clemson as it would be each other’s first real test. Nobody cares how many points each beat their cupcakes by ...unless it’s all you have to go by, like Clemson. OhioSt obviously has better wins than Clemson but the hopefuls have dwindled with PSU, Wis, Minn recent performances. Maybe Michigan will give them a run? Shame to see Tua get hurt like that. Poor kid..hope he recovers well.
  21. Not specifically no. But I’ve heard this happen before and just seems a rep could take care of this. If he didn’t want to be there why’d he tee off?
  22. Seems odd a tour player can’t get a rep to get him some golf balls. It’s pretty silly to run out at that level but human will error. Every effort should be made to get the guy his ball type if needed as long as it doesn’t cause undue delay.
  23. FYI you’re asking a question from a comment made 10 years ago. Having a flat or slightly bowed lead wrist at impact is essentially a requirement for good ball striking. The top of the backswing we see a good mix of cupped, flat and bowed among tour players. How you grip can affect this. Whatever works for you to get your club in a good position and arrive at impact with a flat to slightly bowed wrist is fine.
  24. Nice Bill! Nice to have such straightforward improvements. Did the JPX-919 forged have that nice Mizuno feel? Once I’m recovered I’m going to celebrate with a full bag fitting. I’m open to Ping, Titleist, Callaway and Mizuno. And just curious, did you ever hit one of your ‘tour shots’ and get numbers on it? I’m sure you’ll have some good choices with driver as fast as you can whip that damn thing.
