Even better to see TCU meet Boise St in the title game. Think that might be more powerful than seeing one of those schools get handled by a big team in the championship game.

If the Bucks beat TCU or BSU then the championship wouldn't "count." The Buckeyes victory in the media would be a function of beating an overrated TCU/BSU team. I am not sure that even a playoff solves the problem because please, make the case to me that an undefeated TCU/BYU/BSU deserves a berth in the playoffs as conference champs over the #2 team in the SEC, Big Ten or Big XII.

If the Buckeyes played BSU or TCU's schedule they would face the national media rath and ridicule of the ages. How does BSU get a pass? If they want to play in the NCG then schedule Alabama, OSU, VaTech, and LSU. The rest of their schedule is a complete pass, so scheduling one good team, one mediocre team, one bottom of the barrel bowl team, and a MAC bottom feeder should not get it done if the rest of your schedule is shit.

Let's compare OSU's and BSU's schedule for a minute:

BSU has VaTech, OSU has Miami (these two cancel)
BSU has Wyoming, OSU has Marshall (these two cancel as both were bottom of the barrel bowl teams last year)
BSU has Toledo, OSU has Ohio University (slight edge to OSU, but I will be generous and call it a wash)
BSU has Oregon St., OSU has Eastern Michigan (Clear Advantage BSU)

Now where is BSU's equivalent to:

Iowa?
Wisconsin?
Penn State?

We can sit here and argue the merits of Purdue vs. Nevada, or Minnesota vs. Fresno St., but in the end BSU will not play anyone in league this year that is even close to those 3. Finishing 47-4 is super neato, now go play more than one fucking meaningful regular season game per year.

Loo,

You hit the nail on the head. Now TCU has an inside track to a BCS game (particularly now that SOS is not a factor). What is worse is that they will try to justify it with Andy Dalton's ridiculous stats accumulated at the expense of the New Mexico and SDSU and a rush defense that made its bones by holding the likes of Colorado State or UNLV to 43 YPG. Stats without context are just numbers and most media pundits are too lazy to weight the numbers accordingly. Now all that said, TCU has a much tougher road that BSU in conference: BYU, Utah and Air Force are at least decent teams. The WAC fucking SUCKS! In either case, neither team deserves to be in the championship game until they beat at least something resembling a real BCS conference schedule, if they got to go out of conference to get well then so be it.
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.

What's the good word on Miles? I know most UT fans are UGA and LSU fans this year, b/c Coach Boom will be at the top of their wish list if Richt or Miles is shown the door. I also think that Boom would grow tired of waiting for Mack to retire and that he would jump at the chance to coach either UGA or LSU.

No one is realistic or reasonable down here. Everyone just thinks we can nix Miles this week and Saban or Pelini would just crawl back beginning to do the job for free. Personally, I would like a defensive minded head coach. Preferrably Gary Patterson or Will Muschamp, but that's just me. I do think LSU has 3 very promising young coaches on staff (Billy Gonzales, Ron Cooper, Frank Wilson) but I don't think any of them or in the position right now to make such a big jump.

I do agree with your sentiment on the coach in waiting deal at Texas. I don't think Mack is going anywhere for the next 6 or so years, and there will be viable offers between now and then for Muschamp. I hope LSU has the chance to hire a guy like that, but who knows?

A Boise win probably gets them to #2. Not that it matters if the Bucks beat da' U, PSU/Mich at home and Wisconsin/Iowa on the road things will take care of themselves.

Still early but Beamer's teams.... are they known from battling back and coming from behind?

I think if Vatech's teams are known for anything recently it is disappointment and under-achievement. They've been touted as so good the past 6-7 years and never seal the deal. While I wouldn't be surprised to see them right the ship tonight and end up winning it also wouldn't surprise me to see them F up their whole season right here tonight.

Microcosm of this game so far. VT finally forces Boise into a 3rd and long deep in their own territory. Boise OL gives Moore about 10 seconds to throw and he finds Titus Young wide open streaking across the middle.

Boise owning the trenches. Owning VT so far.

You know college football would be way less confusing if they would stop putting teams like VaTech in the top ten and just put them at 20-30 where they belong. It isn't an upset if the teams are actually properly ranked. That said, this game has been about VaTech's lack of fundamentals and discipline than BSUs skill.

This is one of the worst called games (from VATECH) that I have seen in a long time. Double reverses and end arounds are great calls against teams when you are at an athletic disadvantage against an undisciplined defense. VaTech has the athletic advantage and BSU plays great assignment football. VaTech is calling the game BSU should be. VaTech should be running QB draws, bootlegs and short passes to exploit the man under zone.

That TD is big, need to not F up the last 50 seconds of the half and try to get points first in the 3rd to put some pressure on BS.

LOL, I think that is what we should call Boise St from now on BS.

Entertaining opening half. Fast, physical, and action packed.

Looked like Boise was gonna run em out of the stadium. Va Tech gave em most of their points and missed a big scoring opportunity late in the 2Q.

Tyrod Taylor has looked strong. So has the VT defense after being absolutely owned in the trenches during the 1Q.

VT needs to get their shit together on special teams. All this god damn talk about Beamer Ball ... special teams has killed em tonight.

I'm very curious how this game will go though, It's almost all but a one game playoff in a sense for the Broncos to possibly clinch a national title.

seasons long of course, but if they win this, things could be getting interesting.

Whole new ballgame ... Va Tech finally wised up and is wearing Boise down.

Gonna find out a lot about this 2010 Boise team over the course of the next hour here.

Blown tackle. That hurts VT.

This is one helluva football game.

A little more exciting than last years Boise/Oregon opening week snoozer (before the LaGarrette Blount punch) ...

What a freaking game from Tyrod Taylor so far.

8-9, 101 yds passing, 1 TD, 0 INT. 14 rushes for 66 yds.

Wow ... colossal mistake from Boise running into the kicker!

Va Tech strikes. Tyrod with a clutch pass under duress.

Helluva ballgame.

Evens it up for the questionable RTK penalty on Boise's punt earlier.

I enjoyed reading today's piece man btw. great work as always/

May I think has been to me, really pushing hard to make a name for himself. Knowing he can't be as good as say, a Herbie, Spielman (both buckeyes, but at the same time have remained rather objective throughout their broadcasts), he goes the Skip Bayless route. Him playing the heel route has just gotten old quick though.

I keep getting this feeling that this would be a playoff game if the NCAA ever went that route.

1st round, winner gets 'BAMA/Troy St. winner.

Amazing play by Taylor.

He's really taking over this game. Kid is legit.
