OPTIMA Jim and the Mid-Season Points Crystal Ball!

Since we have a break in the season we asked our favorite OSUSC points commentator “OPTIMA” Jim McIlvaine on to the podcast to break down his recent articles on Every season about this time Jim puts on his sports analyst hat and studies the current – and projected points standings for the series to determine who is probably in to OUSCI….and who is on the bubble.  Obviously, only time will tell for sure….but if we only waited for things to play out what fun would that be? Heck, ESPN makes half of their living on shows that guess the sports future, so why can’t we?

Seriously, tune in and enjoy. The articles we reviewed together are available here as well for your reference:

Thanks, Jim!
