    Still, it was a freak accident. I don't think I have ever heard of a hip dislocation in football before. That sort of injury is something you see with car crashes. I get it, but the QB also wanted to finish out the half. I can't put much blame on Saban for this.

    Urban had a somewhat similar story with Tebow at Florida. Tebow gets knocked out cold in the KU game. Urban was going to sit him out during the LSU game. Tebow and his dad show up at Urban's house and demand to know why they are sitting Tebow out since the trainers and doctors at Florida cleared him to play. 1. They want to play football 2. This was a freak accident and football is a dangerous game You can't use hindsight in this case to say Saban did anything wrong here. OSU had a similar situation last night. Up by 28 can quickly go up by 21 with a 3 and out and a good drive by Rutgers. 21 points at the beginning of the third quarter is not safe. I get it, it's Rutgers, but you just don't want anything stupid to happen on the road.

    I was trying to figure out his injury earlier and kinda guessed at the dislocated hip. Terrible injury to have. The news is he is done for the year. He probably was planning on going to the NFL next year. I hope it doesn’t reck his career. reports showing he suffered a posterior wall fracture. Which looks like a fracture of hip area that helps secure the hip ball and socket joints.
  4. Option 1, I’ve had a membership before and just left the course 4-5 holes short because it became a slog. I rather have good pace of play and work with strange tee times.
  5. BOOM! OSU drops Villanova by 25 points, and had at one point a 30 point lead in the game! In the first week of December they got North Carolina followed by Kentucky before Christmas. Great non-conference schedule for Ohio State this year!
  6. I haven't kept up with the keyboard issues and probably missed out on a warranty fix, maybe:? Which models got hit with the bad keyboards? I didn't have any issues with mine, luckily.

    My TOP 10 rankings based on who you have beaten, and how you have looked in wins and losses. 1. LSU 2. Ohio State 3. Clemson 4. Alabama 5. OU 6. Georgia 7. Penn State 8. Utah 9. Wisconsin 10. Oregon My Top 10 rankings based just if I went down the list of who I think beats who. The higher you are I think you can beat the teams below you more often then the teams above you. 1. Ohio State 2. LSU 3. Clemson 4. Alabama 5. Georgia 6. OU 7. Penn State (If you look at the Minnesota lost, they had all the metrics to win that game except for 3 very crucial turnovers) 8. Utah 9. Florida 10. Oregon

    Minnesota is a weird team that feasts off explosive plays. There is a good YouTube channel that has their own metric system. They mentioned that Minnesota's way of scoring is a bit strange. Kinda fit the bill for this game. The big thing was the three turnovers. Still, a good win for Minnesota. From what I heard was all on the QB making horrible decisions. Also, I think PSU isn't a good away team. They score about a touchdown less on the road than at home.

    I can’t argue that LSU should not be #1 now.

    From Joel Klatt, From Bruce Feldman, All that remains is how much money did he take. In the end, it looks like he paid it back (which is required by NCAA anyways). The only reason why he's out against Maryland is because OSU is doing it to protect the team. From Collin Cowherd's show, Some more facts, 1. He got money from a friend of the family. 2. He paid it back. 3. Chase Young brought it to the attention to the school and they self reported it to the NCAA as a violation.

    Meh, not that big of deal. College Football Stats - College FB Team 1st Quarter Points/Game on TeamRankings.com College Football 1st quarter points/game, by team. Only a 3 point difference between Alabama and OSU in 1st quarter scoring. 2nd quarter adjustments is much better for OSU 😉 College Football Stats - College FB Team 2nd Quarter Points/Game on TeamRankings.com College Football 2nd quarter points/game, by team. 5 point difference between them an Alabama.
  13. I'm not well versed in NCAA basketball analytics. Kenpom is a pretty smart guy. check out his rankings. MSU got to the final four last year and they probably return their whole team. Yea, Wikipedia says they lost three guys off their team. Probably the biggest reason is they might have one of the best players in the country on a team that return most of their experience from a final four team from last year. Yea, I will be the first to admit the B10 isn't that strong this year. The ACC looks to be stacked this year. 2020 Pomeroy College Basketball Ratings B10 has 6 in the top 3, but only 4 in the top 20. OSU has a nasty schedule this year facing, Villanova, North Carolina, and Kentucky as non-season opponents.

    Yea, if you actually watch them you’d see that there was weaknesses. A good number of their wins were close that season. 30-23 v Wisc, loss 21-27 v PSU, 24-20 v Northwestern, 17-16 v MSU, 30-27 v Michigan. when you watched them you could see the issues. Those things do not exist this year. It’s like when you watch OU and see the holes in the defense. You can tell. This year against a tough B10 they haven’t let a team score more than 10 pts. They make adjustments like clockwork. That is why they lead the nation in 2nd quarter scoring margin. This team is different.

    NCAA Football 2019

    I’m not, I actually watched the game. There were way more embarrassing losses than that one. You can be objective in a loss. Take off your blinders. I do as well. When you consider that Clemson averaged 39 points with 30 minutes time of possession and OSU held them to 31 at 35 TOP, the defense balled out. If Clemson did their average they should have scored 45 points. If you actually watched the game, you could tell the OSU defense put up an amazing fight.

    NCAA Football 2019

    Actually, I never considered that a humiliating loss for OSU. If you consider that Clemons held the ball for 35 minutes and only scored 31 points. When that team had Deshaun Watson as the QB! Watson had more INT's than TD's. If OSU had any semblance of offense that year they hang with Clemson. I will also say that OSU should not have been in the college playoff that year. Maybe OU needs to have better PR? Also, ESPN has to make some news about it. Why not sell OSU has an option. They have to talk about something. Again, B10 has to sell a team for the playoff. They wouldn't be doing their due diligence otherwise. Why does this upset you so much? They did, they crushed Wisconsin. Why? OSU has a top 5 defense and top 5 offense. They have played a tougher schedule than Alabama and have a higher scoring margin. Again, you are basing your opinions on past seasons. You have nothing to back up this claim except your own distain for OSU.

    Position where at? How far down would you bump them? 5 spots? So what, that still makes them a 30 to 25th ranked team. It’s not like they should be dropped 40 spots or something. Ranking changes are not linear when comparing the top teams versus the good teams. One loss can drop you out of the top 10. Which makes sense when the top teams are outliers.

    NCAA Football 2019

    Number are on the left of the chart. You could be true, but that doesn’t mean the B10 is a weak conference. It could be that OSU is just playing that well this year. You can’t compare an entire conference based on how dominant one team is. Still, PSU could be a really good team. I wouldn’t judge a close game as a negative.
  19. saevel25

    NCAA Football 2019

    The stats say otherwise. Bill Connelly has been doing these metrics for a long time. He has conference adjustments. This year the B10 is up. Looks like if you combined the SEC and B10. B10, SEC, SEC, SEC, B10, B10, B10, SEC, SEC, B10, SEC, B10, B10, B10, SEC, SEC... Yes the SEC has more elite teams. Yet the B10 has a good number of teams in that good to very good. The issue is, OSU is way above everyone else. Not initially, no, but I am talking about averages. You are isolation one time instances. Nothing is 100% predictive. I never said the numbers are. After hearing what Urban say about Illinois defense did in their scheme, I’m not surprised that it happened if a team figures something out that significant. OSU took it to another level a week later.

    Those numbers are adjusted weekly based on strength of opponent.Here is the thing. Weekly results may not line up with the numbers. I would never say that. There is a reason why UCF never cracked the top 5 a few years ago even though going undefeated. They played a weak schedule and the advanced metrics showed that. Again, I would be the first to admit when the big ten is down. I don’t just jump on the bandwagon like a fanatical fan. The stats, adjusted for strength of opponent show the big ten as the 2nd best conference. Back this statement up with facts. Here are some charts showing how teams fluctuate from preseason to the most recent week. Preseason assumptions, like your generic comments don’t pan out. Maybe for two teams, Clemson and Alabama, but they are outliers. Comparing LSU’s wins versus Top 50 to OSU. OSU’s opponents are highlighted in red. Also, LSU won these games with an average scoring margin of 11.7. OSU beat these opponents by an average of 34.5! Guess what, OSU would do the same against LSU’s opponents.

    A video from Joel Klatt. I would never claim him to be a OSU fanboy. He's one of the most honest, factual, and critical NCAA football analysts.

    Urban's was doing his due diligence as a HC by trying to make his cause for being in the playoff. Should his team have won, sure, but they didn't. I am the first to say that if two teams have a loss it should go to quality of the loss and SOS. I hold this to be true for OSU. Beat a 6-3 team by 24 Beat a 7-1 team by 42 Beat a 7-2 team by 41 Beat a 4-4 team by 71 Beat a 4-5 team by 47 beat a 4-4 team by 24 Beat a 1-7 team by 49 Beat a 6-2 team by 31 They have only played one team with only one loss. None of them have faced a team like OSU. Who in their schedule do you think matches up with OSU. You make it sound like these teams have faced anyone of OSU's caliber. Oh, OSU is the only team that currently has a top 5 offense and defense in many metrics. I think the OSU defense faces an offense like them each week in practice.

    Stereotypes from a decade ago, heck stereotypes from 3 years ago don't matter at all. They are just weak talking points. Lets look Minnesota. Ranked 25th by Sagarin, with an 82th SOS. they haven't dominated anyone, and they have skirted by. I will not claim they have dominated anyone because they are undefeated. I am talking about numbers here. When you compare the conferences, the Big Ten West and the Big Ten East are just a small (very small) step behind the SEC west and the SEC east. Here is a nice bubble chart showing the teams distributed across Bill Connelly's SP+ rankings, by conference. Nearly half of the Big 10 is above 70% of the Big 12. Again you just bring nothing to this at all. You bring what you think is a correct answer because it's what you were trained to say by years bias. Yes, OSU has done better than LSU has. I'll put it this way. The teams LSU has faced are not 17 points better than the teams OSU has faced. 17 points is the scoring margin difference OSU has over LSU. Sure they do, they give you and idea of how teams should fair against each other. Bill Connelly's work is decently predictive. Of course with any stat, a team can absolutely come out flat. ND is not 30 points worse than Michigan, but they decided to play that way that particular evening. To claim that one game should define a team is idiotic.

    Can we stop with they have played a horrible schedule narrative. Stop looking at names, they don't matter. Let's go over a few ratings. Sagarin (use to be used in the BCS system). OSU has the best SOS Rank (20th) of the top 8. Bill Connelly has the following as conference rankings, SEC - 12.2 Avg SP+ Big 10 - 11.5 Big 12 - 10.4 Pac 12 - 7.1 If you break it down by divisions SEC West - 14.6 Big 10 East - 14.0 Big 12 (Total) - 10.4 *They don't have divisions SEC East - 9.8 Big Ten West - 9.0 Pac 12 North - 7.9 OSU Plays in one of the toughest conferences this year.
