@UNI

I already got some Haskins Heisman futures at 28-1 .wish I would have hit it  when it was at 40-1 but I am in Ohio so I couldn't get Vegas lines. Haskins will probably lose a game for Ohio State also. His arm is legit and he will be in the NFL, but he's going to have growing pains and he will get a little overconfident at times.. I just hope it's not against Michigan.

I really think Haskins will put up a few Heisman type plays throughout the year and if the bucks can handle their business it can be their year. Lot of "ifs" though. New center, new left tackle, question marks at LB, lack of DE depth, and I think all of those NFL dbs leaving early will start to show this year as there is no "guy in line" to be a stud. Although Jeff okudah has all the tools.

@doubkeup. Thank you for posting your lines always appreciate your info!!  

 

Best of luck to u all!!   The -230 has crept up to -290 on 5dimes

the odds are -230 but that just implies a 67% chance the ohio state ends up with less that 3 losses... are you kidding me?? is a lifdetime fan i would have made an educated guess at 95% and thats low in my opinion. Urbans track record alone says that 2 losses is tops. let alone ohio states relatively easy schedule and loaded roster. favs in every game, michigan at home. i never say east money but i think odds makers gaffed on this one and id say michigan betters are the reason =)~ ill lay the chalk based on the Value for sure!

much respect lopez... curious why you think an urban coached team finishes with 3 loses in the regular season..... favs in every game loaded offense and a favorable schedule catching michigan at home and psu on a down year ish... 3 losses is unheard of for a loaded urban team

i noticed you just joined... i dont think Michigan Or TCU are destined for a good season at all let alone being a member of the 4 team playoff.... i am just curious of your information for having such claims. 

Michigans schedule is brutal and harbaugh has been breeding a losing culture for a few years

why in the world would Gruden leave his cushy gig to go chase teenagers around on twitter and beg them to come to Tennessee over any other SEC school... sounds like an awful job

yeah because a mid 40s retired tom brady will have such a strong desire to chase around teenage boys and sell them on going to michigan to spend their college football years. im sure hes got little desire to do anything near that.  but im all for the lifetime contract jimmy is supposedly offered.

couple of reasons Bama is on the outside looking in

1 bama just has a bad schedule which will and should hurt them

2 the comittee will not put 2 team in from the same conference. if they do they creat a very slipperay slope... remember Bama/LSU.. they absolutely without a doubt do not want that again.

3.ratings..... midwest regional tv ratings are among the largest in the nation. believe it or not ohio state brings in more tv money that any other NCAA FB team  and they probably travel better than any other team also.  if ohio state wins out it is certainly not a lock that ohio state is kept out

im a fan and most certainly not a homer just see that theres more to the story.this years ohio state team would be a mess to deal with for any team esp if the Dwayne train is @qb and no tape to review

love reading your weekly observations!!

word around the Woody is that Dwayne Haskins is flamingly gay... which in my mind is of no issue... but it may be hard to lead a team of alpha males when you are flamingly homosexual... but then again todays college players are solidly into millennial status and cutting off peckers and such being the norm so maybe they are ok with it!! 
 please dont come in here calling me a homophobe just trying to put info out there that my connections inside the program have been telling me for the past year.... and  i also have heard that it may be the reason urban has had such a hard time letting this immense talent sit for fear that the team may not buy in...

I love JT but Simba is the future and gives this team a more dynamic option that not many other quarterbacks can give a team

so big if...... BUT If players can buy into this cat... he will shatter NCAA B1G and Ohio State records in 2018.. been saying it since the spring game.... Simba can sling it and this kid will play on sundays and will with little doubt be urbans best quarterback ever.

favorite thread its a weekly must read...

and im going to disagree with you on some points but no disrespect meant


BUT i must say BWS if you had Penn state+7 then you obviously handicapped the outrageous special teams blunders into your power ratings and i am assuming you adjusted your number by approximatly 14 points... because Penn state was justflat out beat in every facet of that game last night and the far and away best team almost gave the game away for the second year in a row....

in all of my years of watching football...... including pee wee  this special teams unit is absurd. its atrocious. i could pick me and 10 drunken fools from the bar to do an adequate job of filling lanes. how is this an issue?? mind is completely blown!!

i disagree with whoever said the big10 will get embarrassed in the playoff... i do think that if this issue isnt cleaned up it will bight them in the @ss soon enough but talent wise and scheme wise this team is LEGIT (sans special units). if this team can clean up the nonsense they are going to be a juggernaut... big IF though

also i see your reasoning for questioning going away from JK but watching the game its fairly obvious that JK struggles mightily in pass blocking. we needed to get verticle and not allow those safeties to sit in the box and the only way was to pass. Weber has shown he is a solid pass blocker.

 i also disagree with whoever said the line is suspect on the right side. both prince and knox played a hell of a game and im excited to see the grades for all lineman. there were 2 sacks i believe given up but those were both coverage sacks.

 also i get how you say you need to see JT do it again kinda..... but i must ask you... have you not seen the last 5 games?? if you did you should have seen this coming and barring the literal 10 bullets that we put into our own foot this would have been a double digit win going away. notice the last time jt had an OC worth a damn he balled out..Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day hae put their fingerprints all over this offense and im not worried about jt doing this again my only concern is osu beating themself and heading to iowa city as a 17 pt fav after a big win could be disastrous if this nonsense keeps up. i was screaming at the tv last night to just kick the damn ball out of bounds... just line up and kick that damn thing into the stands straight sideways.... for the life of me i cant understand how there isnt some soccer stud walking around campus who cant kick that ball out of the endzone  

special units issues or not ...... no team will want to play ohio state in the playoff with a defense on par with bama and an offense humming.....

all of the things i hear people talk about are all issues that were present the past 2 years and they were directly correlated to the offensive brain trust... and you can also throw the OU game out of the window... why you ask...  well they were still breaking this system in. these are kids learning an entirely different way of walking. it takes time reps and time.. they are clicking on all cylinders now.

Penn state is def the litmus test.  Id put the over/ under in Psu next 3 games at 1.5... thats a tough 3 game stretch. And i kinda disagree they arent nearly as good as advertised imho. BUT i have been wrong before. 

I agree comp gas been weak but this offense has been arranged to fit a round peg into a round hole vs last 2 years.

been a month or so since i posted as i was totally wrong about ohio state early. i assumed they would be hot out of the gate and that kevin wilson would have this offense humming in game 2 against oklahoma.... i was totally wrong!!

BUT .... if you havent been paying attention this team is not a team that anyone should have any interest in playing. the defense has started to gel. the dline is absurdly deep with talent and the young dbs are finally playing well in press coverage.

but the biggest improvement of this team is by far and away the offense. losing redshirt soph branden bowen may end up hurting this team against penn state, thats yet to be known. but last night demetrious knox 4 star redshirt junior finally decided to show he was more than a turnstile. i did see him get confused in pass pro a couple of times but for the most part he was solid.  Joe Thomas Barret is completing 72% of his passes since the oklahoma loss  21 td zero picks!!!!! he is hitting guys in stride and all of a sudden he is able to throw balls over 10 yards with precision... weird what a competent o coordinator and a former NFL coach as your qb coach will do for your development.

i haven't posted it but the last 4 weeks i was all over ohio state team total over as this offense is humming!! although its been against weaker comp if this oline is able to maintain against a stiffer dline in penn state expect points to be aplenty in 2 weeks when the nitts roll into town....

also penn state looks very beatable now. all i hear in the media is saquon.. saqoin, saquon.... last i checked sans 1 big gain against northwestern late in the game when their lack of depth finally showed.... the vaunted barkley was held to 1.3 ypc.... against indiana the prior week he was held to 2.8 ypc.. surely not much to be impressed with esp considering those 2 defenses are average against the run.  im certainly not buying barkley heisman futures esp with 3 straight nasty defensive lines he has to go up against UM, Ohio state and then sparty. i could honestly see penn state going 0-3 over this tough stretch. I have had this spot circled since the schedule opened up. kinda reminds me of ohio states 2016 stretch when they played 3 straight teams coming off of a bye week and the last 2 being wisky and penn state were on the road at night. when luck struck and penn state was gifted a W. this is the big tens schedulers equivalent of the bill for that spot last year. 

I love that this ohio state team is coming into this game under the radar. i think they were written off after week 2. grab some popcorn and get ready for a 2014 run!!  haters welcome or even boom can come talk about how good clemson is!
