  1. No comment on the 3 wins versus Sagarin top 30 teams after you said who have they beaten that is worth a damn? Your opinion on whether or not they are good has zero to do with the discussion we were having and the legitimacy of them playing in a National Championship Game. It doesn't? Don't you want the best teams in the country playng for the National Championship? Ohio State couln't stop Illinois' spread option offense, I can't wait to see what WVU does. The two best teams in the country right now are Georgia and USC. In an 8 team playoff, they would get a chance to show it. I'm talking about the system as is, it is the only system we have and it is the one to decide who plays for a national championship. To talk about any other system or metric, is pointless. I want the two teams who best earned a shot at a National Championship to play in one. Right now that is Missouri and West Virginia/Ohio State. If Mizzou or WV loses, Ohio State SHOULD be in. I don't even get the debate. I'm glad in the Junior Power Rankings of Awesome? Georgia and USC should play for the National Championship but again, that means nothing in this conversation. Also, saying West Virginia would beat Ohio State, etc. is again, meaningless. Earning a spot in the championship and your chances of winning are totally separate. Again, are you going to address me proving the 'Who have they beat that is worth a damn?' theorem wrong or are you just going to duck that? Let's try this one more time. I said that if Mizzou loses Ohio State should be in under the current BCS system. And I never said Georgia and USC should be playing for the National Championship. Then I have no idea why you feel the need to continue to slam OSU. I guess it makes you feel good or something. Interesting that Illinois win over OSU by 7 points, including a false touchdown, was a big enough deal to have you write celebratory posts and acknowledge the win with a picture in your signature. OSU isn't very good I thought? Also, congratulations on your ducking of the schedule issue that was the main point of your argument against OSU. What a brilliant discussion. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK. Tressel could have challenged that "false touchdown" at any time before the snap, and maybe the "false touchdown" wouldn't have mattered if the best defense in the land could get off the field and Boeckmen wasn't busy slinging interceptions. Ohio State was the undefeated #1 team at the country at that time, hadn't lost a regular season game in like 2 years, and hadn't lost a home game in conference at home in god knows how long. You're right, nothing to be excited about. And I GUESS saying I don't think OSU is that good is "slamming" them. It's not like I'm going OMG DEY SUCK!!!!!!!111. I'm really talking about the system more then I am OSU. Although according to you talking about the BCS system is not allowed.
  2. Michigan and Penn State aren't top 25 teams, and beating #19 Wisconsin at home is a nice win, but certainly not a trademark win. The main arguement for Ohio State is "they lost less games then everyone else". Excuse me for expecting more from my team playing for a national championship. As I said in my original post, if Mizzou loses then under this system OSU will deserve to be in the National Title Game, however that just shows how much of a joke the system is. This year shows how much a playoff is needed. If Northern Illinois or Illinois go unbeaten but dont really look all that special doing it, would you say you expect more from them if theyre gonna be a national championship team, so somebody else oughtta be in the game over them? This one is a little too easy for you to say "yeah" to since there isnt much of a chance of it happening. Did Ohio State go unbeaten? No. And you aren't paying attention if you don't think Illinois has a chance to go undefeated next year. Is it that different if Illinois loses 1 and everyone else loses 2? Should I say that instead? What if Illinois loses 1 game next year and everyone else loses 2 but Illinois also only beats some teams by a few points? And dont forget, theyre in the Big 10, so they play nobody, right? What would you say then? Well if that is the case, Kansas should be right behind OSU in the rankings then. They are a BCS team with only 1 loss. Why wasn't Kansas #1 over LSU last week? What exactly Illinois has to do with this I have no idea. Of course I would be saying Illinois should be in, because I am a fan of Illinois. That doesn't mean I would be right.

  5. Lou, have you looked at Griffey's contract? He is in the last year of his deal. It's not bad. I think you forgot something...$57.5M in salary deferred at 4% interest, to be paid 2009-2024 Pretty sure that even if he is traded, the Reds have to pay that.

  7. I didn't say OSU as a team was a joke. I don't think they are very good, but I don't think they are a joke.
  8. HELL YES!!!!! 7-4 A win in New Orleans next week would basically lock up the divison. This game shows how important turnovers are. Washington dominated that game, but they turned it over 6 times and the Bucs didn't turn it over. There is the difference.

  10. YEAH!!!!!!! WHAT A HUGE PICK BY RONDE!!!!!!
  11. I have a bad feeling about this.
  12. Ohio State playing in the national title game would be the biggest joke of all time. :lol Who have they beat that is worth a damn?
  13. Bucs may will have to make 16 19 stand.
  14. Lou, have you looked at Griffey's contract? He is in the last year of his deal. It's not bad.
  15. That would be freakin awesome Hamilton and Cueto. Hell I would trade DT straight up for Bruce and the Reds wouldn't I wouldn't argue against that, they should have brought him up ages ago uh WHAT? He started last year in high A, and finished in AAA. Plus good luck finiding room for him with Dunn/Hamilton/Griffey. When Hamilton or Grffey get hurt this year, he will be up.
  16. Ohio State playing in the national title game would be the biggest joke of all time. They beat nobody this year, and it's partly their own fault. Their OOC schedule was Youngstown State, Akron, Washington, and Kent State. That's awful. With that being said, with the way the system works they will be the right team to play in the National Championship game if Mizzou loses to Oklahoma. As for Hawaii, this beef would be more legit if they played something that resembled a legit OOC schedule. Coming into the Boise game, their SOS was 119 out of 119. When you play TWO 1-aa teams, then you are asking for trouble in the BCS. HOWEVER, the fact that a team can win all the games on their schedule and not get a chance to play for a national championship (like Boise last year), it's a joke. The problem is with the system, but under the system it should be OSU/WVU (if Mizzou loses), and Hawaii doesn't belong in the title game.
  17. That should have been a TD, but Gradkowski didn't get it anywhere close to Galloway.
  18. Bucs may have to make 16 stand.
  19. There is no chance in hell Krivsky deals Hamilton and Cueto for Willis. Hamilton for Willis, maybe. Krivsky... :mischief :thumbup When they signed Cordero to that huge contract, my first thought was "I bet they go after Willis". They would be a great fit and have some extra pieces that we could use and Willis is still a 'splash' type acquisition that they need to make at SP. Make it happen! Yeah I could see the Reds trading two top prospect............... except Krivsky has never traded away anyone significant on the Reds farm before. when was the last time the Reds organization had anyone significant to trade? They have had Bailey, Bruce, Votto, and Cueto for about 2-3 years now.
  20. Probably because Gradkowski sucks. Just a guess though.
