Um, you all are being weird about this. Yes, if Rutgers was in tOSUs same position the conference would have done the same thing. Getting a big ten rep to the playoff for the money is all that mattered to the conference. They would have changed their arbitrary rules for any of their member schools in that situation...
bingo. especially if that rule put a team that the undefeated team beat in the conference title game over it.

I'm going to guess that the buyout on that extension is incredibly small

Pretty sure Harbaugh doesn't have an agent.

I think a more fun question is does this happen if tOSU was in Indiana’s position with a second tier (or whatever tier RU currently is) school looking to jump them.

yeah, the whole point of the season was to get a team in the playoff

I realize that the Big Ten title game is/was more appealing with Ohio State, but getting a team into the playoff is the ultimate goal

Is the school in your hypo looking to jump them gonna get a spot in the playoff and all the money that comes with it? Then...yes.

Sure, a 7-0 B10 champ makes it this year no matter the school, but the way everything worked out (meaning Florida not beating Bama in the SEC championship) so does the 6-1 B10 champ tOSU from my scenario. Not sure you can say the same about Indiana or NW in that position, which is part of the reason the rules were changed to let tOSU in.

So I agree it’s tough to say that tOSU being tOSU didn’t play into the arbitrary decision the B10 made, which is really all anyone else was saying on the previous page.

In my defense, it’s hard to tell which of your posts are serious and which are facetious.

Can someone help me figure out what fictional/ cartoon character it is that Ryan day looks like? I just can’t figure it out but I know it’s something slightly odd.

Do they not coach how to stop slants in college? I swear 90% of completions are slants.

Just depends on whether the D is set up to trap, or to guard against outside routes/fades. I mean, it's more than that, but as a MI fan that constantly saw its team gashed by slants, you learn to see what they are taking away by allowing those slants.

It has been so much fun following this Bama team. So many truly likeable players. The big three (Smitty, Mac, and Najee) are all super humble and great teammates. I’m glad they were able to back up their awards by showing out in the title game, and in a big way.

Devonta is such a talent. His combination of top end speed and quickness, combined with length and hands, is as good as I’ve ever seen. He runs great routes and plays fearless. In interviews he comes across as a simple country kid, but he is razor sharp.

Mac has improved so much as well. Hell, as freaky good as Burrows was last season, Mac basically equaled him in numbers. He worked so hard in the offseason to improve his pocket sense, and it showed. Last year pressure right in his face would lead to regular errors, this year he kept eyes up and found check downs. I’m not sure he will be a great pro, but he has the tools to do it for a long time.

I adore Najee. Not sure if you’ve seen the vid, but he lists Meghan Rapinoe as one of his favorite athletes and people he looks up to. He’s going to do great in the NFL, as he has the skill set to even play TE.

A Sark coached offense is always going to get open guys on the slants. They do so much action on the edges, the defense has to respect the outside edge. Combine that with the best program in the country at producing top WR’s and the D is in trouble.

Also, they are really gonna miss Sark next year. He called a nearly flawless game last night.

I guess since Young is coming in at QB the O will look a lot different, so not a bad time to deal with a new OC. But still, the O loses a ton of talent. Defense will be the opposite, and they will look much improved next year.

Of course, BO’B is the lates coach to apply for and receive the annual Nick Saban career recovery therapy course, so we will see how that goes. At least he won’t be allowed to trade away the best players.

That exchange that began with him saying he looks up to her during that press conference, and continued with tweets back and forth, was fantastic.
