No, that was for Peeker & Eye.

Individual performance always varries but as a unit Meh.


Waaah.

So if I mention again the Brandon Weeden shitshow is that fact based or trolling?

You were trolling. I know how it works. It's easy money here.

No one's arguing they aren't elite. Point being no one else appears to be either.

Summary:

Iggy > Eds

JB was trolling

Roby was targeting.

All are obvious.



Peeker - the Buckeye's offense is top 10 and almost elite IF Miller is healthy and running.

The D is just flat out mediocre.

CFB is rounding out nicely. It's bama, Oreygun and FSU. All else shove off into mediocrity.


Okay. Not disagreeing.

But that said, it will not shock me in the least if OSU wins out and all three of those teams you believe to be elite are beaten at least once. Oregon still has UCLA, Stanford and Oregon St, Alabama has LSU and Auburn, Florida State has the easiest road but their bus is still being driven by a RS freshman, regardless how precocious he is. Like I said and will continue to say, if OSU wins out I think things take care of themselves as to a BCS title game appearance for Buckeyes and their admittedly shitty defense.

And if they get waxed then they get waxed.

ETA- And it won't surprise me if FSU beats Miami and loses to FL. I'm actually hoping for OSU's sake that that's how it plays out. Because Miami could be a fly in the ointment if they beat FSU in a couple weeks.

Mediocre is very kind... Seriously.

The issue with 'Bama, Oregon and FSU is defense. I am not really sold on any of their defenses stopping each others (or the Buckeyes or Baylor's) offenses. This year, the elite O's are way ahead of the defenses.

Honestly, I think I am most overall impressed with FSU this year as a combination of offense and defense, then probably Oregon.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.
