The hosts of The College Football Podcast debate who deserves an invite to the BCS National Championship should OSU and Auburn win their conference championship games on Saturday. Ryan Bolta (@TSNBolta) and the case for Ohio State: If in fact Ohio State completes an undefeated season and wins the Big 10 title on Saturday, they deserve to play for the BCS National Championship. An undefeated team in a power conference has never been passed over in favor of a team with a blemish on their record, and that should remain the case. Naysayers will point to a below-average strength of schedule, close victories or to the SEC right to have a team in the championship because their conference is the deepest. Those naysayers couldnt be more wrong. It is incredibly hard to go an entire NCAA football season without a loss. There is a reason only one team, also Ohio State, accomplished the feat last year. No matter the level of competition, winning every single game is incredibly difficult. Many teams would be part of the conversation if not for slip ups against lesser opponents. Oklahoma State lost to West Virginia, Michigan State lost to Notre Dame, and Stanford beat two top 10 teams but lost to unranked Utah and USC. There have been hundreds of examples this year that just because you enter the game as a favorite, it doesnt mean youll head home with a victory. Also, on the topic of strength of schedule there is one key fact that continues to be overlooked. If playing tough opponents is of such high importance, it would be Florida State being replaced in the national championship. According to Jeff Sagarins formula Ohio State has played the 61st toughest schedule while Florida States ranks 66th. Thats before OSU plays No. 10 Michigan State on Saturday, while FSU gets No. 20 Duke. Ohio State has played the tougher schedule, and that gap will grow on Saturday. Another popular argument is the big 10 being “down” this year. The depth in the Big 10 isnt what it was years ago, but the fact is it produced a power matchup in the title game. Ohio State will play a top 10 team with a vaunted defense and only one loss on its resume. Florida State gets a two-loss traditional basketball school in Duke that for the first time in history won 10 football games this season. The Seminoles are 29-point favorites over the Blue Devils. None of this dismisses Auburn from the conversation, just points to the fact if you were to have them leapfrog an undefeated team you are looking at the wrong one in the Buckeyes. As for Auburn, the case against them is simple, they are not perfect. I believe that any loss eliminates your should there be two power conference undefeated teams, but well dig deeper. Auburn not only lost a football game, but they lost by two touchdowns to an LSU program that sits No. 15 in the BCS rankings. As impressive as their win was against Alabama, we cannot just look at what theyve done lately. College football requires you to look at the whole resume, and the Tigers have a glaring two-touchdown defeat on theirs. No. 21 Wisconsin would surely be higher if not for their very questionable loss to Arizona State on a game where the referees decided the outcome by not spotting the ball for a game-winning field goal try. Northwestern was 16th in the rankings when Ohio State beat them by 10 points with ESPN College Gameday in attendance. The Buckeyes won a dog fight in their rivalry week game and would need a victory over a top 10 opponent in Michigan State to make the BCS Championship. OSU also beat 8-win Iowa by double-dights and 7-win San Diego state by 26. When comparing wins, was Auburns last-second win against Texas A&M really more impressive than Ohio State over the Hawkeyes? Id argue that is wasnt. Admittedly OSU didnt play the strongest schedule, but there is some proof that Ohio State is in fact a powerhouse worthy of their No. 2 ranking. This was still the schedule of a team in a power conference, and one that cannot be ignored. All of the SEC backers need not look any further than Alabama coach Nick Saban. After losing to Auburn Saban mentioned coaching his team to treat the entire season as if it were March Madness, as in you need to win your games to advance. The most decorated coach in the SEC admitted that a loss eliminates your team, unless of course there arent two undefeated teams to play for the championship. If not for sanctions against Ohio State last season, Alabama would have missed out on the title game under those same conditions. One other popular point is Urban Meyer successfully lobbying for Florida back in 2006. The difference then was only one team (ironically Ohio State) was undefeated heading into the bowl season. So any quotes from the former Gator and current Buckeye are taken out of context if they are being used to show who he believes should be in the title game. Whether it be Auburn, Alabama or potentially Missouri, the fact remains that no matter what conference you come from one-loss is too many if there are two teams remaining from power conferences that are chasing perfection. Mike Marshall (@marshallmike) and the case for Auburn: When No. 3 Auburn and No. 5 Missouri meet at the Georgia Dome on Saturday, they will be playing for the Southeastern Conference championship. Despite their not-quite-perfect records, they should also be playing for a berth in the BCS National Championship. Sure the Ohio State has won a school record 24 straight games and is 12-and-0. But youre “going to tell a group of young men, who just went 12-1 in a most difficult schedule, that they dont have a chance to play for a national championship? Im going to need help with that one.” Thats a quote from Urban Meyer back in 2006. At the time, Meyers Florida Gators were 12-and-1, ranked fourth in the BCS standings, and outside of the national title picture. Meyer was lobbying for the Gators to jump USC and Michigan and earn a berth in the BCS Championship. In the end, both the Trojans and Wolverines lost, and Florida got its shot, beating Ohio State by 27 points, and beginning an unprecedented run of 7-straight national titles for the SEC. Ironically, this year Meyer is on the other side of the debate, lobbying for the unbeaten Buckeyes to get a bid over a 1-loss SEC champ. But if anything, his argument from 2006 rings more true now than ever before. Forget the fact that both Auburn and Missouri went from 3-and-9 and 5-and-7 a year ago, to 11-and-1 this season. Gus Malzahn and Gary Pinkel have already both been nominated for Coach of the Year. Forget that Auburns season culminated with a historic Iron Bowl win, their second miracle in as many games, knocking off the program that was gunning for an unprecedented third straight national title. Forget that Mizzou closed their season with a win over Johnny Manziel and then No. 21 Texas A&M, holding the reigning Heisman trophy winner to just 216 total yards, statistically the worst game of his career.The strength of schedule of an SEC champ should trump an unbeaten season of a team in a has-been conference. And the strength of schedules arent even close. Both Auburn and Missouri beat four top-25 teams this season. Ohio State beat two. The Buckeyes rang up wins against five teams with losing records. Auburn played just two. Auburns FBS opponents were a combined 20 games above .500 this season, Missouris 10. Ohio States? Eight games under. Sure both Auburn and Missouri lost a game. But Auburns loss came against then No. 6 LSU. They lost 35-21 at Death Valley, the place that LSU coach Les Miles says is “where dreams go to die.” They lost in the rain, at night, in a stadium in which the home team is 34-and-2 since 2009. Missouri lost to No. 8 South Carolina. In double overtime, when kicker Andrew Baggett banged a 24-yard field goal off the uprights. Hardly a blemish to throw away a season on. The Buckeyes played five road games en route to their 12-and-0 season. Those road opponents? A combined 5-and-36 in conference play. Ohio State won “the game” last week beating archrival Michigan – a team that had lost three of their last four - on a failed 2-point conversion. The Wolverines scored 41 points in the loss, despite scoring 49 total points in regulation in all of November. The Buckeyes two wins against ranked teams came against No. 21 Wisconsin, the same team that as a 24-point favourite lost to Penn State this past weekend, the largest FBS vs FBS upset this season. The following week OSU beat then No. 16 Northwestern, the beginning of the Wildcats seven game losing streak, and a 1-and-7 finish in conference play. When the Buckeyes meet Michigan State in Indianapolis, it will be their first regular season game against a top-10 team since 2009. Auburn has played three. This season. This week, Meyer has understandably changed his tone. Hes lobbying for the Buckeyes, and a chance for the Big Ten to win a national title for the first time since 2002. But, like he said in 2006, “its called winning and losing, and playing a difficult schedule.” And there is no schedule more difficult than that of the SEC.

Snedekers best result so far this year is a tie for eighth place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. He sits 113th in FedEx Cup standings and has dropped to 31st in world rankings — not the results expected from a player ranked fourth in the world only two years ago. Chris Harris Jr Jersey . And follow TSN.ca right through Wednesdays 3pm et trade deadline for all the updates. Blue line help for Red Wings? In addition to what he reported in Insider Trading, TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun wrote on ESPN. DeMarcus Ware Jersey . Johnson shared an update after his surgery Tuesday on Twitter. He also wrote, "now lets get on the grind." The running back told The Tennessean he was having surgery in Pensacola, Fla.TORONTO -- Nazem Kadri was relieved to have a new deal, and that emotion extended to his Toronto Maple Leafs teammates who wont have to answer questions about his status. "They are glad its over," Kadri said. "Im sure theyll take me out for a nice dinner on me." Fresh off signing a US$5.8-million, two-year contract, the restricted free-agent centre was all smiles and ready to move past the summer squabbling as he reported to training camp. But with defenceman Cody Franson unsigned and no extensions yet for captain Dion Phaneuf and star Phil Kessel, the Maple Leafs still face plenty of contract questions. The most pressing situation is that of Franson, the only one of the 59 players invited to camp who did not report. "My deals out of the way now, and hopefully Franny and his agent could come together and come to terms because hes a big piece of our team," Kadri said. "I know everyone wants him back and I know he wants to be back. Its just a matter of when." Judging by what general manager Dave Nonis had to say Wednesday, it could be a while unless the 26-year-old blue-liner moves closer to the Maple Leafs negotiating position like Kadri did. Nonis said the team wasnt prepared to change its stance on Kadri, crediting him for wanting to be there for the first day of camp. Now the pressure is on Franson. "Weve made him an offer that we want him to take," Nonis said. "Hes declined to take it. At this point, were going to move ahead with the players we have here in camp." Nonis wasnt afraid to boast about Torontos depth on defence. Beyond Phaneuf, Carl Gunnarsson, Jake Gardiner, John-Michael Liles and Mark Fraser, the Maple Leafs will also give prospect Morgan Rielly and free-agent signee Paul Ranger hard looks in training camp. Its not personal, but the Maple Leafs only have between $2 million and $3 million of salary-cap space to work with, and that could put a squeeze on Franson. "Theres realities about where you are," Nonis said. "We have X amount of cap space. We have players who are going to try to make this team that may eat up some of that. Theres only so much we have to get a deal done. I understand his position, he doesnt think this is fair. We want him signed. We want to have Cody at camp. But hes not here." Kadri is in camp on a deal that will make him prove 44 points in a lockout-shortened 48-game season wasnt a fluke. He called it "fair for both sides," as his coach emphasized the importance of every player being in camp. "The 48 games he played with us last year was a start, but you wouldnt consider him a veteran guy when his next NHL game is his 100th game," Randy Carlyle said. "Hes a talented young player, and we feel fortunate to have him." The Maple Leafs are fortunate to have Kessel and Phaneuf, too, though each players future is uncertain as he goes into the final year of his contract.dddddddddddd Kessel doesnt want to negotiate during the season, so management and agent Wade Arnott have a limited amount of time to negotiate an extension as training camp progresses. Kessel would prefer a "longer-term extension" because hed like to be somewhere for a long period of time. Other than that, he wasnt expansive about contract talks other than to say the Maple Leafs hadnt approached him in the off-season. "Im not too worried about it," Kessel said. "I got one year left here, and well see what happens." The same goes for Phaneuf, the Maple Leafs No. 1 defenceman and captain who has expressed a desire to stick around. "I know it will be an important topic, but were going to keep all that in house," Nonis said. "If and when we start negotiations with those players, it will be behind closed doors." Yet it will be an ongoing topic of conversation in this hockey-mad city until something gets done, just like with Kadri. The difference is, if Kessel isnt signed by the start of the regular season, the Maple Leafs will be playing meaningful games as he tries to put up the first 40-goal season of his NHL career. Centre Tyler Bozak had 12 goals and 16 assists last season before going to unrestricted free agency and ultimately re-signing with the Maple Leafs for five years and $21 million. He insisted he never considered leaving. "My No. 1 plan was to stay here, and throughout the whole process we were trying to figure out a contract that worked and find the right amount," Bozak said. "Luckily enough we were able to agree on something." It might not be so easy for the Maple Leafs with Kessel if the situation gets to June or July. But Nonis brushed off concern about that scenario. "I dont think its a circus either way," Nonis said. "Whether we start negotiations now or wait until the end of the year, there are two things that have to happen for a player to sign: He has to want to play here. It doesnt matter how much money we throw at him, he has to want to play here. "If he wants to play here, and if we want to have him, I believe we end up finding a way to make a deal." Thats what happened with Kadri, even though it took until 12 hours before players were set to show up at camp. Perhaps a deal could have been worked out sooner, but he and the Maple Leafs have bigger things to concern themselves with. "You can feel like its dragging on a little bit, but theres a purpose for everything and its not like we did this for no particular reason," Kadri said. "Im very relieved that I have a contract and that Im employed now, so we can just start worrying about the more important things and get this season going."
