LMAO! TCU got kicked out! Wow, I bet the BIG12 will be looking for a 12th team in order to get a championship game now. This does not bother me one bit, congras to The Ohio St for opening a can on Wisconsin & proving they should be there. Over all I think the committee did a great job in getting the 4 teams correct. Of course there will be 75% that don’t approve but hey, I have no control over it. This should be fun to watch.

No way, Ohio St. jumps Baylor and TCU! Ohio St. has the worst loss of all the teams being considered yet simply because they blew out Wisconsin, they are in. Seems suspicious to me!

The only question I have is this…will the two losing teams face each other to determine who is really 1-2-3 & 4 among the final four??? Donald
