The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Why would Jimbo schedule Ohio State on three days notice? No film, no schemeing..a lot on the line. And little to gain. And where would you play on three days notice? OSU travel to Texas? A&M travel to Ohio? The Liberty Bowl as a compromise? It is half way....

But anyway..it is a MOOT point and all theoretical...The Big Ten has a prohibition against playing out of conference and has already stiff armed Nebraska...and has not yet relented on the prohibition.

Oklahoma's Riley said that they wanted to play OSU...no call from the Buckeyes...Even Riley said that the logistics would be tough.

Jimbo didn't do anything. He said that he had no interest if given notice on a Wednesday prior..but there is no evidence that Ohio State did either.....

But if I were Jimbo and had the call actually come, I would have snorted..."So...on a couple of days notice you want us to travel to the Shoe to take Michigan's place in order to give you a data point ? "

Fans wanted to see such a match up...but it seems neither program was interested,,,,Oklahoma raised their hand and said "me, me"...

Spence...talk of Jimbo being a "coward" or Ohio State actually asking to play is moot....Jimbo did say that the notion of scheduling a game with that much on the line with three days notice was crazy..... Ohio State was not going to ask...and if they did, they might have been too cowardly to pick up and visit Texas on that short notice. If I were Jimbo, I'd say..."well, come on down".

So...the whole conversation is moot and based on a theoretical proposition...capische?

And here it is...Dabo calls out the Big Ten....says Ohio state, if 6-0, should not go ahead of a 10-1 team....less risk in a six game schedule....You can alwaya count on Dabo to be uncontroversial..LOL

Heck...Clemson lost to a top team in the country, in a tight overtime game, while having their star QB sidelined with Covid....and playing a true freshman back up.

If Clemson beats Notre Dame in the rematch...I'd lobby that a 9-1 Clemson and a 9-1 Notre Dame should be in the CFP before a team that played six games.....I don't blame Dabo for lobbying...

Jimbo said.."i think you're being a little crazy with it" to the reporter...and if someone had asked Ohio State's coach, he would say the same.....

His actual remarks..

[size=150]“You'd be considering it. But I think on Wednesday, I mean, I think you're being a little bit crazy with it because you know that from game preparation and to get the quality of game you want to do, I don't think you would... Because if you want to go into that game for both of us, there's a lot on the line. You would want to be prepared for the game. Now, to play them? Yeah, it doesn't bother me to play them. I'd love to play them. Play them in the playoff. Line up and play them. Whatever it is. I think on a Wednesday, I think would be a very tough thing to do on a game that means so much.”

And I certainly think Jimbo was correct on this....

But if the Buckeyes really had wanted to play...Oklahoma was ready...

Speaking with media members on Thursday, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said that he would say yes to a matchup with Ohio State if the Buckeyes hypothetically reached out. Of course, the Big Ten has prohibited its schools from playing in non-conference games in 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns -- something Riley acknowledged -- but that didn't stop the fourth-year Sooners head coach from discussing a theoretical top 15 showdown as the Sooners currently prepare to go for a sixth consecutive Big 12 title on Dec. 19.

So, in the same breath, Jimbo Fisher can say, ‘I would love to play Ohio State, but no, I don’t want to play Ohio State.’ :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Every time Jimbo opens his mouth I think of what P.T. Barnum said. :wink:

Ole Jimbo will keep selling ii as long as people keep buying it...... :roll: :roll: :roll:
