URBAN – WE’RE A WORK IN PROGRESS: Heading into Saturday’s top-10 match up with Nebraska, Urban continues to see positives but notes the team is a work in progress: “I do see some very good positives. I like the fact that you get in a street fight and you win it. And that’s a good sign of the future’s very bright here. We have really two seniors that are playing in Pat and Tyquan — well, Tyquan’s not, he’s got another year — and Dontre. You’ve got a bunch of young cats going and swinging hard and practicing hard. So I guess I’m much more positive. Do I wish that we were — that 56 points and all those kind of things, sure, but we’re a work in progress.” Watch Eleven Warriors video of the full press conference here.
Happy Playoff Committee Tuesday. Like Punxsutawney Phil emerging from his long winter hibernation in February, for the first time in a year the playoff committee will be seen and deliver news that will shape the coming months. In hand, at 7:00 on ESPN, will be the first playoff rankings. With wins over Oklahoma and Wisconsin, will OSU be the highest ranked one-loss team ahead of Louisville? We will see. Will the Indians seal the deal tonight? We will see.
