re: Playing a big time OOC game early in the season is dumb - Buckeye Fan 19
On the other side of the coin, if Ohio State played Ball State instead of Oklahoma, OSU may not be in the playoff. Not only would it hurt OSU's resume, but it also wouldn't have eliminated Oklahoma. If Michigan didn't choke against Iowa (and Colorado beats Washington) it'd probably be in the playoff...

re: Could Brian Kelly retain his job while Charlie Strong is led to pasture - Buckeye Fan 19
That's crap. ND had more guys picked in the first four rounds last year than any team except Ohio State. Kelly's just not a good coach....

re: Lions 16 Vikings 13 FINAL - Buckeye Fan 19
The PI call wasn't that bad. I don't know if it should have been called but the DB grabbed the WR's jersey near the right shoulder. Certainly wasn't an egregious call and was probably even "technically" correct (even though, again, I don't know if it "should have" been called). ...

re: Who do you think hires Charlie Strong? - Buckeye Fan 19
He might do what Muschamp did or what Schiano's doing and become a DC again at a major program for a bit....

re: CBB: Players To Watch 2016-17 - Buckeye Fan 19
Beachem really broke out in the NCAA Tournament last year for ND. He's always been able to shoot from deep, but he started to get more aggressive attacking the basket. If he can keep up the confidence and if he developed a more solid defensive game, there are some nice pieces around him (e.g., Steve...

re: The problem with the popular vote argument - Buckeye Fan 19
Not only that, barry, but the candidates/their teams would have campaigned differently and/or in different areas. Trump would have dumped more time/resources into Chicago or NYC if it popular vote determined the winner, and maybe would have flipped people who voted Clinton. ETA: Like you, I'm als...

re: Deadspin trolls Notre Dame - Buckeye Fan 19
Shouldn't have included the first two, not from this season. And there's more than enough from this joke of a campaign (e.g. the muffed punt return against Miami for a TD) to replace them with....

re: Does Brian Kelly have a job Sunday morning? - Buckeye Fan 19
Posted something similar to this on a thread a few weeks ago on Coaching Changes: Kelly's results aren't too different from Weis's. Each had a blowout loss in a major bowl to an SEC team. Each lost soundly to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. Each had/is having a terrible season (this one for Kelly,...

re: Who is Notre Dames's next coach? - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]I don't know why people fail to notice that other than 2012, Kelly has been hardly better than his 3 predecessors. Notre Dame would be 100% justified in firing him. Especially considering this is a board for a team that just fired a coach with a .770 winning percentage. And Miles was faci...

re: Who is Notre Dames's next coach? - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]They kept Charlie Weis after a 3-9 season when his biggest accomplishment was almost beating USC in 2005. Kelly has never won less than 8 games. He will be back next year. Even if they go 4-8. [/quote] As UFFan said, that was Weis' third year, not his seventh. If you look at it, Kelly...

re: Would you rather your team W a low tier bowl or lose a mid-tier bowl? - Buckeye Fan 19
Looking at it in a vacuum*: Champ > lose NCG > lose playoff semis > win NY6 > lose NY6 > win mid-tier > win low-tier > lose mid-tier > lose low-tier. Basically, I think there's a big enough bump up in prestige between playoff and NY6 and then NY6 and mid-tier that I'd rather lose at the above tie...

Credit Score / paying off loans questions - Buckeye Fan 19
Hi everyone. I'm 24 years old and in the process of paying back student loans. I have five "groups" I'm paying back on Nelnet. Three of them are between 6 and 7 percent. The other two are between 3 and 4. They're due around 2024. In addition to automatic withdrawals, I'm planning on putting in extra...

re: What's the worst 'BCS' destination? - Buckeye Fan 19
The trip to the NCG in Miami made up three of the best days of my life, and that's even including ND getting drilled. Awesome trip. I've been to Jerryworld, too, although for a regular season game (ND vs. Arizona State) not a bowl. It was pretty meh. To be fair, we were only in Dallas the day of ...

re: Time to ask for help... - Buckeye Fan 19
As others have said, the cable is the thing that jumps out immediately as unnecessary. I'd dump it. Are there other little ways you spend that add up quickly? For example, do you buy your lunch? If you go to Chipotle, Subway, etc., every day for lunch, you can spend $6-8 per day. But you can pac...

re: Biggest bust ever at quaterback - Buckeye Fan 19
Russell because he went No. 1 overall. If Leaf had gone No. 1 (even if Manning hypothetically wasn't in that draft), it'd probably be him, since his stats are even worse than JaMarcus'. If he was actually selected over Manning, it definitely would be him. But I'd still say Russell since he was actua...
