Nice, post links about the conference. So OSU goes 10-3, 11-2, 12-1, and 10-2 the last 4 years and they supposedly suck. Aren't you guys setting your standards a little high? I'm sure everyone else's favorite teams have had records much better than that and that's why they can claim OSU "sucks". I was a fan through the John Cooper years, I know what sucks looks like and this is definitely not it.
you spouted some nonsense about Ohio St begin better than Florida based on ancient history. We're just showing that recent history shows Ohio St is not as good.
i dont think Ohio St sucks in the normal sense .. I just think they're overrated year after year because the entire Big 10 is overrated year after year. Just look at the bowl record this year for the conference.
Conference Bowl RecordsCode: Select all
Big 12 4-2
Big Ten 1-6
Big East 4-2
Conference USA 4-2
Mountain West 3-2
Sun Belt 1-1
As an overall program, there's no question that OSU is better, or I should say more accomplished. Just like the Yankees are the most successful ever in baseball, you can't ignore a team's history just to suit the present day perception of them. They made a big deal during the Fiesta Bowl about the winningest programs in college football history, with Michigan, Texas, OSU being in the top five. That's all irrelevant just because OSU lost the previous two BCS championships? How about Oklahoma now? They've now gone 1-3 in title games, do they now suck the worst of any large program?
Anyways, congratulations to Florida for winning tonight.
