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 isn’t 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."

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.

I'm sure it comes as no surprise to any one in SEC country but it's a well known fact that President Obama made Alabama lose to Ohio State in the play-offs. It is obvious to any one that no SEC team could possibly lose to……well any team, EVER.

The upside for SEC fans is the unanimous pre-season pick is pretty must the death knell for any chance the Buckeyes had of repeating.

I was impressed with Alabama playing Middle Tennessee State, Louisiana Monroe, and Charleston Southern this year. Now to take on those powerhouses this year is just incredible.
OSU will meet its downfall this November
