"This isn’t stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
That still doesn't change my opinion that OSU/Alabama currently would be a pretty good game and there are similarties between Alabama and Wisconsin.
And yes, NW doesn't like to pass the ball. They are currently 59th in FBS in pass yards per game, and they went 100 yards over their average against OSU.

The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
They have already had one bye week this year and have another one in a few weeks.
As annoying as this is for Buckeye fans, it should keep the team fresh and more injury free.
Now as for what would happen if OSU played the Tide, all I will say is everyone thought OSU would get rolled by Miami in the 2002 NC game, and we all know how that turned out!
I would honestly be more worried about playing Oregon than Alabama. Oregon's offense looks absolutely unstoppable and I believe match up wise OSU would play pretty even with Bama. I also think OSU's arsenal of weapons would give Bama's D a tough time. It'd be a great game though.
There are no hunting accidents...It's called kharma.
Alabama 35 OSU 6
I am a huge OSU fan.
I don't really see how OSU doesn't finish the season undefeated, but I only want them to play in the national championship if they are actually the first/second best team in the country. The last thing OSU and the Big 10 needs is to get slaughtered in a championship game again.
I didn't track Meyer's teams at Florida all that closely, but I got the impression they improved a lot the more the season went on.
Pay attention to the open sky
They get all of preseason, then 12 regular season weeks, plus a bye week (or two) then all the time b/w bowl games. That is a lot of time to disect the things that your team is struggling with and improve those areas, as well as add new wrinkles to your team as you've proven you can handle the stuff you were working on in training camp.
