re: Statistically, Ohio State is the better team
What about the % percentage of deflection derived from the mean deviation of the tangential wave calculated across congruent tendency patterns ? Huh ? What about that? That’s why it doean’t matter at all. You see ?

re: Statistically, Ohio State is the better team
Tenn is good but we didn't play them,maybe I missed the point.

I'm saying our bad games are similar to there's.

Im just looking at the strength of schedule metric, which we have been high on as a fan base before, and it has us at 25th and them 29th or 30th,i think.

Make Fields throw downfield and see how good they are


Agreed.

Fields' running is the biggest threat and running QBs have had some success this year against the LSU defense.

If the LSU defense brings the energy and intensity they brought to the ATM game, then it's gonna get ugly because UGA's offense is not built to score quickly like LSU. It could easily be 21-0 in the first quarter if the LSU defense gets 2 or 3 stops early.

If TopBillin could scout UGAs defense and point out at least 3 weak link dbs, I'm confident Burrow can do the same. And then Joe will exploit TF out of it.

We can bet our asses he's not pulling a Jamarcus Russel and skipping his homework this week.

As far as OSU goes, I don't think they can beat LSU after watching them several times. Their typical game is so mismatched in talent that they end up looking really good. They haven't played a team stocked with NFL talent like Clemson, LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, or Georgia.

In the event that LSU does end up taking on the Buckeyes, I think the football world will be shocked at the ease with which the Tigers take them down. Most of us won't.

re: Statistically, Ohio State is the better team
Apparently you don't have the ability to look at our top wins compared to theirs, and draw a rational conclusion that the top wins for LSU would mop the floor with the top wins of Ohio State. For some reason, you can't comprehend that. Those top 3 or 4 wins is what matters, not what some teams ranked 69th in the country did. Both LSU and Ohio destroy those type teams. Doesn't matter if it is Conn, Utah St, Rutgers, or arky. It's the top wins that make the difference.

re: Statistically, Ohio State is the better team
Michigan was the most talented team that osu played, and it's like they deliberately tried to throw the game with all the drops and mistakes. Or maybe, Michigan just is not very good, given their best down by Florida in the bowl. The big is grossly overrated this year. Aside from Ohio State.

Opponents Record:
7 Ohio St 82-50 62.1%
40 LSU 75-57 56.8%




This "stat" right here is where people, and the committee, themselves, have the biggest blind spot.

Go look at the strength of schedule of the teams who make up that "opponents record" on OSU's schedule, vs the strength of schedule of LSU's opponents.

Ohio State has played so many either horrible teams, or teams with decent records... Against horrible teams. LSU beat Auburn. Who did Auburn beat? Oregon, Texas A&M and Alabama. LSU beat Florida. Who did Florida beat? Auburn. Now here's a curveball: We also just walloped A&M who, admittedly, has beaten no one. But they've lost 5 games to teams that were all in the top ten, and they played 3 of them close, While Bama won by 19 and LSU won by FORTY THREE! A&M is easily on par with overrated Michigan, but Michigan hasn't had to play 5 top 10 teams, and so people think they're better than they actually are.

Now, Alabama hasn't beaten anyone good, but we already know who they are. Look at Ohio State's opponents. Who has Cincinnati beaten? Their "best" win is a 3 point win over currently unranked UCF. They have a 10 point win over 4-8 UCLA, an 11 point win over 4-8 Tulsa, a 15 point win over 4-8 Houston, a 3 point win over 4-8 East Carolina (starting to notice a trend with these records?) a 3 point win over 4-8 South Florida. Hey! They won by 2 over 8-4 powerhouse Temple and had a 45 point win (way to break the trend, Cincy!) over Uconn, who are 2-10 (...Oh, never mind). They did beat 8-4 Marshall by 38. I guess that totally validates them and cancels out all the other slop performances against awful teams, and the fact that they lost to both ranked teams they played.

And that's just Cincinnati. Do a little dive into Ohio State's other "big" wins, or really just anyone on their schedule, and you'll quickly realize how stupid it is for the committee, or anyone else, to use stats or "eye test" to differentiate between LSU and OSU, when the road these two teams have taken has not been remotely on equal ground.
