Quick Hits

OSU FootballThings are slow around these parts. How about some bullet points?

  • You’ve probably seen this already, but it appears that Duron Carter and Robert Rose (oh, the irony) could possibly pull a Reggie Germany and make themselves ineligible for the Rose Bowl. No official word yet.
  • Finally, SOMEONE gets it right. That SOMEONE is The Sporting News, as they rightly selected Ohio State’s Hurt Coleman for their First Team All-American Team.
  • Jeff and his merry band of bloggers over to Sports Blog Nation, filling the vacancy left by We Will Always Have Tempe. We Will Always Have the We Will Always Have Tempe Blog.
  • This Big Ten Expansion talk is getting heavy and outside my realm of expertise. I personally don’t see a huge upside outside of Notre Dame (never gonna happen), Pitt (I’d be okay with that) or maybe Missouri.
  • There’s still a couple days to get in on the MotSaG Bowl Pick’em contest (complete with a snazzy prize!)

    there are a few other options for a 12th team…. Cinncinasti….. Louisville……Kentucky……Pitt……ND……Syracuse…..West Virginia…..Iowa State….North Dakota St (they are better than Minnesota lol)….I am sure I could come up with more names. Curiously enough when I read Barry Alvarez comments on a 12th team he said something about looking outside of the Big Ten Region….. So it could be interesting if they do. My problem is I hope we dont end up with unbalanced divisions. I dont see a way to not put OSU and PSU and UM all in the same division which doesnt seem fair. But I do love the thought of 12 teams.

    to add to why I want a 12th team….

    I never ever want a team to get a Rose Bowl bid from the Big 10 just because they didnt play OSU and shared the Big 10 title with us and because they havent been to the Rose Bowl in 50 years they get to go even if we are clearly the better team.

    A Championship game would be awesome for sure. I know we wil lose some that if we didnt play we would be in a BCS game or NC game but I am sure we will win some that will put us there when we wouldnt have gone too.

    Plus We all want more Buckeye football in the 6 weeks in between scUM game and Bowl game lol.

  3. I really like the fact that the tone of the majority of Buckeye fans has started to change a little bit. For years there’s been a lot of dissatisfaction with the idea of not having The Game be the last game of the regular season. Recently I’ve seen a lot of people being perfectly ok with the idea of having a championship game a week after it.

    That goes for me, too. I wasn’t a big fan of the idea about 10 years ago, but now? I’m warming up to the idea.

    Also, there’s been a lot of talk about not just 1 team joining, but up to 3! There is a not so small chance that the Big Ten wants to become the Big Fourteen. Imagine that!
