Browns Perfect Season! 0-16.  Almost blew it with a 14-point lead!

Well, at least we had a 4-0 pre-season.

Disappointed, but you can't get creamed by Iowa and not have it hurt.

That's terribly sad news.

A very tall order to have to beat the same team twice.

Well, Auburn are dabs at the thrilling finish.

Not looking too promising for the Ohio State Buckeyes this evening with QB JT Barrett having undergone arthroscopic knee surgery last Sunday.  If he plays, he surely won't be very mobile and will undoubtedly be susceptible to an aggressive Wisconsin pass rush.  The O line will have much to do to keep him safe, and the D line will have to excel to stymie the Badger offense.  Maybe this year a back-up QB can bring Ohio State a victory.  Lots of great games today.

Syf, not sure that Bama are the obvious choice.  You're right, of course, that Ohio State had a catastrophic loss to Iowa, but I think their wins over Penn State, Michigan State and hopefully Wisconsin indicate a stronger strength of schedule than Bama's, something the committee values, as it does a conference champion.  The cynic in me might give OSU the edge in potential TV audience, given that the Buckeye vs Wolverine matchup drew the year's largest TV audience, even though it had a 9 am West coast start time.  I do think OSU's Iowa loss ought to be their death knell, but I'm not convinced that it will be.  Not sure that OSU can beat the Badgers with a hobbled QB or a backup, but then again they did win a national championship with a third-stringer.

I hope the final four are Clemson, Auburn, Oklahoma and OSU.

Dizzying, AZ!  If Auburn wins out, Clemson beats the Cocks and Miami, and TCU beats the Okies, OSU beats Wisconsin, what then?  Auburn of course, Bama, and Clemson, but who's the fourth?

Definitely the better team won, so our goose is cooked.

I should be pulling for Alabama, but I find myself urging on Auburn. What gives?

Weber, the kid from Michigan, scores TD for Bucks

Ohio State wins 31-20.  Got out of the Big House with a win, but now I can't believe I'm saying "Roll Tide"!  Hope Barrett will be able to play next week.
