OSU would have a tough time achieving a 500 level of play in the SEC. Too tough on D. Too many thoroughbreds who are too big and too strong. Even the worst team in each division has the capability to drop the best in the Big 10. The SEC is just too too.

RE: Re: RE: cleveland fans are not like you see on tv

SEC...Are you telling me that the sec is tougher than osu? Reports across the nation debated if the hurricanes could beat the NFL teams in 2001 and 2002...they sent 11 guys to the nfl that year..the buckeyes sent 14...how did the sec combined stack up to that? Trivia...how many guys did the buckeys send last year...how many 1st rounders...Bentley...Grant....those dudes were the saints biggest studs on both sides of the ball for the saints last year...where did they have the foundation layed? osu....... They currently have 38 players in the nfl...7 heismans (eight after ginn runs away with it this year), the only guy to win 2 heisman trophies, 6 national championships....football is an ohio sport (that is why the hall of fame is in canton)! Columbus is the capital and our professional football team! It's nice that you support sec, but take their top team and play a big schedule and see what happens...I layed down some facts...give me something about a single team in the S.E.C that can stack up to thay?!..... No Joe Pa, No Bo Schembechler, No Woody Hayes, No Jim Tressel (4 1-aa titles and a 1-a title which came his second year)..Drew Breez played in the Big Ten, Eddie George played in the Big 10, Cris Carter played in the Big Ten, Charles Woodsen played in the Big Ten, Orlando Pace? He's a good player! Tom Brady played in the Big Ten! 1n 2004, the Big Ten had 44 players drafted into the NFL! How many did the S.E.C. have? 42! Nice but I think, and I'm not a math matician, but the Big Ten had more, higher drafts (Buckeyes had 14 alone..they led the nation)! Robert gallery...Iowa!...Yeah, he's good! The S.E.C. plays good defense..? Yeah, I tend to agree! No argument here...I don't think they have ever assembled a linebacking core that included A.J Hawk, Schlegel, and Carpenter! No team ever has! All at one time..They all went high in the draft! How about Chris Spielman...the Freshman who posted 29 tackles against Michigan..he was godd, don't you think? How about Antoin Winfield, or Shawn Springs, or Jack tatum for that matter! They were Buckeyes! Could they have played for Vanderblit? Robert Smith wasn't a stud, was he? Simeon Rice isn't very good?!..yeah he is (Illinois) Bob Griese was part of 17-0! Where did he play his college ball? Athlons rate s the positions in college football...Notre Dame is one in QB's...Who passed for, ran for more yards and TD's than Quin last year and had a high completion percentage? I'll give you a hint..it is the same guy that destroyed Notre Dame's entire team34-20 last year in the Fiesta Bowl! His name is Troy Smith and he owned all the college records for a Q.B. last year! Who has the highest ranked Blue Chip R.B. in the Nation?(Wells Destroyed the nations best competition in the Nation in the Army "All-Star game"? Who has an offensive line coming back this year that averages 6'7" 317 Lbs? Tressel has a 50-13 record in 5 seasons. I support the Saints from Ohio...If anyone talks trash about the AsAINTS i HAVE TO STICK UP FOR THEM...EVEEN THOUGH THEY HAVE LITTLE HISTORY TTO PUSH AROUND. i ALSO LIVE IN OHIO AND SUPPORT THE BUCKEYES...THEY REPRESENT MY STATE AND THEY DO A HECK OF A GOOD JOB! THEY HAVE MORE HISTORY AND SUCCESS THAN MOST TEAMS....MICHIGAN (BIG TEN) IS THE WINNINGEST COLLEGFE TEAM OF ALL TIME! YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE OSU, BUT #'S DON'T LIE...OSU IS UNBELIEVEABLE! NUFF SAID!

I'm appreciate the fact that you are proud of lsu because it's where you live ! I respect that, but i am proud of my bucks because they are consistent and will be in the hunt...
Consistent? Last title chase? Wasn't that WITH Clarett? Didn't UT go into your home and beat you? The Big 10? More like the Little 10. The ONLY reason the SEC teams don't play in national champs every year is they eventually end up beating each other. Take ANY of the top SEC teams and put them in ANY of the other conferences, and they are undefeated. SEC also has the best winning % in BCS games of ALL conferences. Please. I give respect where it's due, but this ain't the same Big 10 from back in the day any more, and the SEC is definitely still the strongest conference. We'll see.

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: cleveland fans are not like you see on t

I think there are a lot of good players in the Big 10. Unfortunately, the depth and overall quality isn't so great, nor are the coaching schemes. Now Penn State's a program. Maybe you can get the buckeyes to emulate that program and you might be competitive with the middle tier SEC. They've got no real studs and they play as a team, which accounts for their superb season last year. However, in order to truly compete, you'll have to convince world class speed to attend a college that isn't particularly well known for developing that speed. The SEC farts and nationally ranked speed throw themselves on the wind to get a scholarship; only the rejects wander away from the SEC.

Bottom line,
The attrition in SEC Football is perennially greater than in any other conference. The pounding ALL the teams endure on a weekly basis cannot be matched by any other conference. The co-championship you speak of was nothing more than a demonstration by the AP against BCS procedure which BTW had it correct. If you play a tougher schedule week in and week out as the SEC does, it doesn't matter how good you think you are. Strength of schedule makes you prove it. You get beat up week after week in conference in the SEC and that should stand for something. USC was fresher and more without injury because they played POWDERPUFF PAC-10 teams all season! The PAC-10 couldn't and stil can't prove Jack-Poop in-conference. If USC wanted to play for the real title they should have scheduled a tougher non-conference road. Their only quality victory in 03 was Washington Freakin State! OU deserved to play for the title because the Big-12 was and still is tougher than the PAC-10! We have the class and lack of fear to have a Conference Championship Game. Big 10? Big 10? Beuller? Beuller? OU got served and a bunch of Sports Writers saw their "Power" slipping away so they effectively robbed LSU of what they deserved. F*** the AP! They are outdated and irrelevant.
Rant Concluded.
Sorry for the lack of paragraphs. I am still WAY worked up over this BS.

GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm no one.
Who are you?
