Ohio State? Tiger Bait

Congrats to the Bayou Bengals on their bid to the BCS Championship game. Maybe next year we'll get to see OSU get trounced by a third SEC team but I'd prefer it to be the Gators again.

The Suckeyes have never beaten an SEC team in a bowl game. I'd be shocked if this was the first time.

Notre Dame has a longer win streak than either team in the BCS championship game. That might be my favorite statistic of this entire crazy season.

As a rule I always root for the SEC, so I'll be saying "GEAUX TIGERS" that night.

We'll contend next year; somehow my sixth sense feels confident saying so.

Anyway, I'm glad we got Michigan in the Cap One; now we can even the score and pick our bone with them. As for the Zookers, they better be prepared for a good old-fashioned ass-whuppin' and reality check from the Men of Troy!

Also, the SEC went 1-2 against the Big Ten last year. How is it so easy to forget that? Let it go.

The only Big Ten Vs SEC match-up you should worry about is Florida vs Michigan.

Uh, Amos, and just what has ND done lately? Usta-be-ins just lay on the floor, until you sweep them away...

OSU is nothing more than FSU 10 years ago, minus the late hits of course. Much like FSU only needed to beat Miami and UF in the mid to late 90's to assure themselves a trip to the title game, the same is now true of OSU. If they beat (random early season ooc opponent) and Michigan, they can pretty much start booking their trips to whatever city is hosting the title game that particular year. And much like the Noles of the late 90's they can pretty much expect disappointment about 75% of the time.

The first comment is absolutely correct. OSU has played against eight SEC teams in various bowl games since 1973 and lost every single one. They have found a way to lose to Florida, Alabama (twice), South Carolina (twice), Georgia, Tennessee and Auburn by an average of 28-14.

Amazing.

Sullivan,

If you look up Michigan's reocrd against the SEC in the same time period, you might see a different story. I suppose it's just a coincidence that you chose to leave that out?

Anonymous, Zook won't be on the sideline for Florida this time around. Besides what make you think Michigan can stop Florida's spread when they couldn't stop the App. State spread and the Oregon spread? Come back by on the 1st.

Gomez, you're not getting the point. It doesn't matter. Being from the SEC doesn't mean they will beat up on teams from the Big Ten. For Chrissakes, let it go.

Uh, yes it does.

Gator Duck said...

Yep, it does, because even the best BIGTelevEN schools play a log of teams with weak defenses.
