Default Ohio State gets unanimous pre-season first place ranking

Gee. A defending national champion with the 42nd toughest schedule gets ranked #1. The only SEC team with an easier schedule than Ohio State is Missouri.

Let's remember what happened to them in the first game last year.

For a team to start the season the way they did, to go through all of the adversity with quarterbacks and to then win the nation championship, everyone else is envious as heck. Go Bucks!

The best man at my wedding was from Dayton and had played in the band at Ohio State. Great guy!

Hotty Toddy! Roll Tide! War Eagle! Etc. OSU's status will last no more than 3 games. :: 👿

Default BAD News for Ohio State Fans

From the Washington Post:

"As far as an indication of how Ohio State might do, the preseason poll isnt always a good omen. The Buckeyes were the No. 1 preseason pick in 1998 and 2006 and both times finished second nationally. The last team to win the national title after being ranked first in the preseason poll was USC in 2004 and the Trojans championship was vacated because of NCAA rules violations. The only other team to be ranked No. 1 from the preseason poll through the national championship was Florida State in 1999."

And the the Buckeyes will have sell out crowds when they play Rhode Island A&M or whoever to witness a blowout.
What many don't realize is not only does a team with a creampuff schedule have a successful season but they can save their players for the playoffs. The SEC beats up each other all season long playing top teams week after week.

And the SEC is far more fun to watch.
