    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Chase Young for Heisman, Ohio State’s Chase Young Is Playing Like A Heisman Contender | FiveThirtyEight The most dominant college football player on one of the nation’s best teams is a 6-foot-5, 265-pound defensive end. Although the Heisman Trophy is... This is a bit absurd.
  13. I disagree. What if a person wants to know if they have a penalty? What if they think they are 1 up going into 18 and plays conservative? I think the golfer should have all the information at hand. Withholding the knowledge of a penalty I think does more harm than good.
  14. I wasn't sure, but I was curious if there is a rule about promptly notifying your opponent of a breach in the rules.
  15. I think I found it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i7VKQwDS2s *YouTube will not let this video be embedded.
  16. Its always interesting to hear the rational behind plays like this.
  17. I think they fall into the supplement, not medicines. I bet a lot of them have warning about not being regulated by the FDA and makes no actual factual claims to helping doing anything. Something like, "May help with" is common I think. 1. Do research 2. Find credible reviews. I have a handful of people I follow online that I trust their opinions on brands. Then I do my own research before buying anything.

    Bill Connelly had a hilarious, but maybe somewhat true, take on why MSU has a horrible offense. If he fields an offense that works then it would beat his defense in practice thus devaluing the defensive system he prides himself on the most.
  19. Would You Rather… #3: Would you rather hit your best drive (i.e. if your maximum drive is 250, then hit it 250, if your max is 300, then its 300, etc...) to the center of the fairway every time you tee off from now on. OR would you rather hole every putt from inside 10 feet from now on? I would pick A all day long. A few reasons, you can become good at inside 10ft putts really quickly. Majority of your putts inside 10ft are inside 3ft if you consider tap ins and really good short game shots. For ever taking away a bad tee shot is HUGE! No more OB, water, rough, fairway bunkers...

    Well that was a dominant win in horrible weather. Wisconsin couldn’t do anything at all on offense. I was a bit concerned with their O-Line, but they didn’t show up at all.
  21. Its crazy how trying to compensate for an injury just leads to other issues. I hope he's healthy because he's shown at the Masters he is still dangerous.
  22. As long as they don't blow it in my face. Nothing as disgusting as a person who vapes right next to you, wafting that shit into the air. Yea, I want vapor mixed with spit to just land on me.
  23. It will only last till the next trim or rain. Better then spray paint 😛
  24. I believe I heard Joe Rogan talk that some MMA fighters use it during training. Not heavy use, but a lower dosage, and there seems to be benefit. I can't remember his exact quote on it, but I believe it was about marijuana since he is big on its legalization.
  25. I don't agree with that. Some people can't handle addictive compounds. I am sure there are plenty of people who have lived wasted lives because of weed. They might be content with it, but with out weed they probably could have had a better life. I would classify that as an ill effect.
