After seeing Louisiana-Lafayette lose to Florida on a fluke and Alabama lose to Texas A&M, I am doing everything in my power to keep from writing yet another post calling out the fallacy of the SEC and the problems with the Polls. Even more frustrating is the fact that although Ohio State remains undefeated, they still sit behind not one but two on-loss teams.
Sure, I could write about Coach Tressel’s return to Ohio State for a special tribute to the 2002 National Championship team (to do it any other way would be a crime) or the Ohio State
hockey team’s…I mean basketball team’s non-season opening “Carrier Classic” and the fact that the B1G holds 3 of the top 5 spots in the early season basketball rankings. To do so though would be fooling myself as it would eventually deterate into a rant against the polls and my frustrations with ESPN talking heads arguing how the SEC still deserves a shot at the title game.
So I leave it to you to get me going. Three topics of discussion:
1) How thankful is the BCS that Ohio State isn’t in the discussion and how badly are the AP voters wimping out by not ranking them in the top 4?
2) Is the fact that Coach Tressel belongs on the field with his 2002 team even a point of discussion?
3) Ohio State Basketball team won their season seconder and is ranked No. 4.
(Bonus for No. 3: Isn’t it great that unlike college football, preseason basketball polls really don’t mean anything? They just get us psyched for a great year!)
