    Saying a conference is better based on bowl games doesn't always work, cause many times it's BIG10 #3 vs. SEC #5 and crap like that, which doesn't really set up for a fair comparison based on bowls.

    Sounds like a cop out. So there's never a #3 SEC team against a #5 Big 10 team? Besides who cares if it's the #3 Big 10 team? If the SEC is so much better wouldn't their #7 team be able to beat our #2 team?

    But seriously it's a good gage to judge on how the conferences stack up. Both teams are expected to play their best for a bowl game right? Besides why bicker about numbers like that?

    Of course the Big 10 holds its own vs the SEC. Pretty much EVERY conference does. But you know...they beat each other though.
    "Why is SEC Team #1 so good?"
    "Well, because they beat SEC Team #2"
    "Oh yeah? Well...why is SEC Team #2 worth noting?"
    "Well, because they beat SEC Team #3"
    "But didn't SEC #3 lose to SEC Team #4?? They suck"
    "Yeah, but SEC Team #3 beat SEC Team #1"
    "Ohhhhhh. SEC RULES!"

    And that's how it works. Not sure how...but it does.

    You guys continue to use that as if anyone cares about that game anymore lol. We were over that one 3 weeks after it happened.

    But it never gets old! You creative geniuses, you!

    I dont know anyone that didnt think OSU deserved to be there. The debate was with regards to Florida and Michigan as to who should have been the team that OSU played. And I think it is obvious the correct call was made.

    Your offensive line didnt decide not to block. Your offensive line was simply over matched by a defense that was full of future NFL pro bowlers. I dont think people understand how great that defense was, and it was easily the best defense that OSU had played against all year.

    You have to give some more credit to the teams you faced. You can't always make assumptions and excuses.
