Maybe they want to trade.
I'm gonna throw up with that thought in my mind.

Not to stray too far from the point of your thread, but game threads in just about every forum I've visited are hideous places to be when your team is losing. The emotion and hyperbole of the moment are just so over the top. Most (not all) people sober up by Sunday and more reasonable thinking prevails.
I quit drinking about a year ago and am always sober and yet I engaged in significant ranting this past season that I did not deem to be emotional or hyperbole. I saw it as pure unadulterated fact. Just like I firmly believe there are about 25 coaches who could have gone on the same winning streak as Meyer if they had played the same schedule.
You may be right. We'll never know.
Using Sagarin as the basis (it seems to be referenced often), Ohio State's SOS was 57. For comparison sake, Alabama's SOS was 45. FSU's SOS was 63. So while Ohio State's SOS wasn't anything to write home about, it certainly wasn't that far afield from various other highly ranked teams.
I'm not going to defend OSU or FSU's schedule, but I think anyone who refuses to give Urban Meyer credit for winning 24 straight is just kidding themselves. Meyer has won and won quickly at all 4 stops.
Also, he didn't set OSU's schedule. That was set well before he got there.
People may feel hurt for the way his tenure at UF ended, but like him or not, Meyer is pretty clearly one of the top 5 or 10 coaches in all of college football.
I agree. The only real question is, what will this "tragic" loss do to him? Will the old UM show up in the spring and continue through the 2014 season or has he really embraced the "let things be" philosophy? And will the 'Nutters let him?
Didn't he beat Alabama without the services of Percy Harvin?
