Ohio State may be unbeaten, but still needs help

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Heading into their final three games of the season, the fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes go into an off week with almost all of their highest goals still within reach. The thing is, they also need some help. No wonder coach Urban Meyer will be watching TV closely. ”I’ve been there before a couple of times where some things had to happen right,” Meyer said after Wednesday’s rain-soaked practice. ”For us to waste energy on that, that’s not fair to the players we coach. But we’ll certainly be watching.” Meyer plans to watch Thursday night’s games with his son, Nathan. He’ll have plenty to watch, that night and Saturday. Thursday’s games include unbeaten No. 5 Baylor hosting No. 12 Oklahoma for the Big 12 lead, and then No. 2 Oregon at No. 6 Stanford in a Pac-12 showdown. Baylor is breathing down the Buckeyes’ neck in the Bowl Championship Series rankings, while Oregon is one of the three teams ahead of the Buckeyes. ”I’ll watch them both. Obviously I’ve got a lot of interest,” Meyer said during the Big Ten coaches’ call this week. ”Oregon, the style of play that they have – we try to use some of their stuff, as much as we can, because I just think they’re really good. But I’m going to watch Baylor; they’ve got an exciting program too.” Even though Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) is rolling through its schedule, the Buckeyes cannot play for the national championship if the status quo holds. At No. 4 in the BCS rankings, they need two of the three teams ahead of them to lose or drop behind them in order to be among the top two teams when the national championship pairings are determined in early December. On Saturday, another game with huge ramifications for Ohio State takes place when No. 10 LSU plays at top-ranked Alabama. Meyer said he will be measuring his own team by what he sees on the flat screen…

College football’s 25 most intriguing quarterbacks of the 2013 season (Yahoo! Sports)

Back by semi-popular demand (my editor and a guy down the street said they liked it), we have the second annual Most Intriguing Series previewing the 2013 college football season. This week: the 25 most intriguing quarterbacks. 1. Johnny Manziel , Texas A&M. If you don’t know why he tops this list , you may want to start following curling instead of football. 2. A.J.

McCarron has often been at his best in the past two BCS championship games, and was highly clutch in the winning drive at LSU last year. He also comes with a girlfriend who made Brent Musberger foam at the mouth on national TV, and a chest tattoo that even Birdman Andersen would find impressive. The only player in America who makes him look dull is Manziel. 3. Braxton Miller , Ohio State. Which starting quarterback has the…
