    They'll probably leap Auburn over us in the polls. Unless we get more help we will be locked out of the NC game - (Still gotta get passed Mich St too).

    There's never a wrong time to feel like Carlton.

    What a game. This is why I still prefer college to the pros. I love the NFL, but nothing in this mediocre season has come close to this game, nor Alabama/Auburn.

    All signs point to the Buckeyes getting the #2 spot in the BCS this week, but the Tigers will be closer than before I'm sure. But yeah, for right now all Urban and the boys can do is get ready for Sparty and let the chips fall where they may.

    The main question now of course is does Ohio State still get to play FSU if they beat Michigan State barely while Auburn beats Missouri by at least a TD.

    All the Bucks can do is take care of their business and keep the blinders on in doing so.

    And quite frankly, don't be surprised when Mizzou beats Auburn.

    Vegas opened the game with Auburn -3. The line has since dropped by half, they're only a 1.5 point favorite. Likely to be a complete tossup by the time the game starts, I think Missouri is likely to win as well.

    Mizzou can reliably dial up pressure with a 4 man rush, never need more than that with the skill of their ends. That will give them assistance in the secondary and the ability to spy Marshall for most of the game to shut down the read option. I like Mizzou to win, but not jump OSU.

    Exactly. I don't want the Buckeyes worrying about style points this week. Just TCB against Sparty the way they have the last 24 games they've played. Auburn/Mizzou is out of their hands. I will say that I'm a little concerned about Michigan State. True, they looked flatter than a 13th century globe against Minnesota, but with the Buckeyes coming off of such an emotional, hard fought win, I think they're more vulnerable than they've been at any time this year. It could be a rout, or it could be a nail-biter.

    A friend of mine from High School who graduated a year before me is dotting the i for the bowl game, potentially the Championship game this year.

    It's taken me a couple of days to even begin to talk about Saturday's game. Very frustrating loss. Kudos to Michigan State, they won it fair and square and I wish them luck in the Rose Bowl, but man.

    Oh well, on to Clemson.

    With the Orange Bowl still a few weeks away I guess it should be pointed out that the Buckeyes Men's baskeball team are 11-0 and #3 in the country :D.

    1.) Yeah, I haven't seen you around the boards in ages, Drew. 2.) With an annual enrollment of over 50,000, there are a lot of Buckeye fans out there. 3.) Boo! :p

    Well, 12-2 is certainly not a season to be ashamed of, but given that both losses came at the end, it's certainly a bitter pill to swallow heading into the offseason.

    DarthIntegral -- does the fact that Greg Oden was referenced in the first post of this thread make you fear for the Crisis of Infinite Drafts?

    Nah. He's a chameleon. You can never tell where he'll show next.

    The only place you're not likely to see Greg Oden is a basketball court :p.

    I head back to work tomorrow here in Memphis. A lot of Bama fans here. I'm sure a good dose of trash talking awaits me! :p

    They won't even look me in the eye today. I've endured a lot of mouth in the past month and today has been beautiful so far.
