    I haven't heard much about tOSU this offseason...how are they stacked up? They got to have studs if they are in the top 3. I wouldn't have expected them up that high after the past two Chip losses

    I believe they only lost 4 to the draft. Yeah their pretty stacked. The only concern is how will the Dline hold up but I think with a Healthy Eugene Wilson and Heyward we will be just fine.

    Well USC is just as talented as a SEC team. I could see this being a great game and I could see it getting ugly quick. I am very interested to see how OSU will adjust to the Trojans. Also I think it will be very hard for Beanie to have a huge game

    I think USC has the better LB corps but Ohio ST is going to eat that Trojan offense up.

    No Beanie will have a huge game take it to the Bank.

    Btw what does that mean? USC is just as talented as a SEC team I guess Ohio St isn't as talented as a SEC team?

    I hate to say it but not the elite SEC teams no. That's been proven in the last two National Championship games and looking at current rosters that still holds true.

    Florida, LSU, Georgia > Ohio St. For Sure

    By the way Tennessee at 18...eh about right. :yes:

    In head to head matchups I would take the cream of the crop SEC Teams any day of the week.

    I think Ohio St is a good team don't get me wrong but not as good as the top tier SEC teams.

    They just have alot of speed and depth like some of the great SEC teams. I am not dishing Ohio State, But they are what they are. They don't get some of the athletes such as Florida, Georgia, LSU,and USC.


    Maj I would not be so confident about Beanie having a huge game. The Trojans have a good run defense and those LB's are scary good.

    That has to be a joke a very big joke.

    I forgot the Big 10 is the Big Slow :pity:

    I don't get where Ohio St doesn't get the athletes those schools get. I'm sure you have evidence backing that claim up.

    That's not a joke your just taking all this as an insult. USC recruits great athlete's like the SEC teams do. USC recruits nationally better than anyone else and they can pull great talent from anywhere. The make-up of their team resembles a lot of the top tier SEC teams. I am not saying Ohio State is a horrible team they just have not performed well v.s. the Speed of the SEC. USC can match that speed and it might cause a lot of problems for Ohio State. I am not calling it the Slow Ten either.


    As for the evidence to back it up did you not watch the last two national title games?

    To be honest... Im a Michigan fan, and Im surprised Michigan is #24. Maybe they arent as bad as im thinking theyre going to be this year.

    Its hard to judge a team like Michigan becuase of there coach. While he is very good coach he does not have his players, But that does not always mean doom. Urban Meyer won a National Title with kids who did not fit his system. The Best coaches find ways to win. I think Michigan will really show a lot next year tho.

    *sigh* no point in arguing. I guess Ohio St is going to have to beat USC to change this.

    A great showing v.s. USC would definetly turn some heads. It would also probably signal another BCS Championship game berth.

    I think you could lose a game early and still make to the title game. If OSU beats USC I expect to see them in the title game. Big 10 alittle down this year. Not saying there won't be tough games but none the bucks will lose imo.

    For my boy Stitches tho - Let's go Penn State!

    I'm fairly confident in this team this year. Its much better overall than last seasons team. I just want to see some football, its been far too long.
