Also what it tells me, that a team that finds a will to win is a WINNING football team. You can go about what ifs, what nots. When it comes to the 5 major conferences, winning is all that matters.
Cal scored 34 points against OSU, their highest point total so far in a 1-11 season.
OSU beat Wisconsin by a touchdown in a very close game.
NWestern also scored well above their season average against OSU. That game was really close, and NWestern is 5-7. Ditto for Iowa.
4-8 Illinois bested their season scoring average by a TD against OSU.
And then there's Michigan. They're 4-5 against major conference teams. They bested their season scoring average by 9 points against OSU.
Agree with the winning--that's all that matters at the end. But we're talking about the CHAMPION TEAM OF THE YEAR. OSU does not look like a champion team.
MichSt will be OSU's third ranked opponent. One of those was NWestern, who lost the next six games. They've faced no teams who've spent any time in the top 10.
Auburn will be Mizzy's sixth ranked opponent (though one was Fla). 5 of those teams have been in the top 10 this season (though one was Fla). Two will probably finish the season in the top 10.
Mizz will be Auburn's sixth ranked opponent. 5 of those teams have been in the top 10. Two will probably finish the season in the top 10.
BTW I previously said that the ACC might be better than the SEC this year, but now I don't think so. Clemson got exposed against SoCar. FSU's only decent wins were Miami (sucks), Clemson (not as good as we thought), and Fla (who started their worst season in 30 years ranked in the top-10). At the end FSU is going into the NC having played 1 real quality opponent.
