This should be an Awesome matchup very early in the College Football Season for 2008. There are so many NFL to Be Stars in this game it will be like a college all-star game.
I am very excited about my Tar-Heels and the progress they are gonna make in the 2nd season under Butch Davis as coach, but this game will definitely be worth watching.

The season starts off with some nice games week 1.

Mich State at Cal should be a fun one to watch.

Alabama at Clemson, another good one for the first week.

Also, Illinois at Missouri and Colorado vs Colorado State, should keep my interest in the first weekend of College Ball. Last years Illinois vs Missouri game was one of the best games of the year.

Kentucky vs Louisville as well, got to love those early Rivalry Games.

Week 2 gives us Miami at Florida, G-Tech at BC, Oregon State at PSU, and Cincy at Oklahoma.

Week 3 it gets fun with OSU at USC, Michigan at Notre Dame, Georgia at South Carolina, Oregon at Purdue and Iowa State at Iowa.

OSU sucks, is overrated, slow and they lack talent. USC will win by 50.

Can't wait for the Bucks to get redemption on THE national stage.

OSU's defense should be fast enough to prevent USC from scoring 50. Plus USC is putting a new QB into place who isn't the caliber of Lienert or Palmer. It should be a very good game. A lot like the early season Texas vs OSU games of a couple years ago. Winner will be ranked #1.

Have you not gotten blown out in the last two national championships? I am not sure you can be anymore exposed as a very good team in a below average conference.

I'm not an OSU fan by any means, but they are a very good team. I think a 45 day lay off and having to play the best team out of the SEC 2 years in a row may have contributed to their back to back national title losses. The Florida game was a case of being out coached, the LSU game was a case of running out of gas man for man and just being one notch below the caliber of LSU's talent.

However, I do believe that OSU was the 2nd best team in the nation for the last two years. Had they played anyone else, they would have one the Title. At least that's my opinion.

LETS GO PITT

OSU was rebuilding last year for this year, which is why al but one of their stud Junior's came back. They will be a force to be reckoned with, especially if Boeckman steps up his game.

i said that ohio state is a very good team. However, there is no way they were the second best team last year, thats why they finished sixth in the polls. A two loss team whipped them. I am glad that they are playing USC this year, thats proabally the only game that they will be the underdogs becuase other than wisconsin and a decent illinois they do not play anybody.

Who was better? A lost at home to Stanford USC Team? The Lost at Home to PITT WVU Team? Kansas? Missouri? Who was really better than OSU last year that should have played LSU?

Don't just say they weren't the 2nd best team without throwing out who you think should have been.

It should have been an all SEC championship between the dogs and the tigers. heck a one loss team from the big 12 should have gotten a chance to play before the perenial laughing stocks of the championship game got another chance. thats why the big ten and pac ten conferences voted down a playoff system, they are one horse conferences. i think if the pac 10 and big 10 continue to vote no on a playoff system the rest of the conferences should walk away from the current bcs and they can still have their rose bowl and the rest of the country can figure out who the national champs are through a playoff system.

How each conference fared during the 32 postseason games

Conference Schools Record Percentage
Sun Belt (1) Fla. Atlantic 1-0 1.000
MWC (5) AF,BYU,NM,TCU,Utah 4-1 .800
SEC (9) Ala,Ark,Aub,Fla,Ga,Ky,LSU,MissSt,Ten 7-2 .778
Pac-10 (6) ASU,Cal,Ore,OSU,UCLA,USC 4-2 .667
Big East (5) Cin,Rut,UConn,USF,WV 3-2 .600
Big 12 (8) CU,KU,Mis,OU,OSU,Tex,TexA&M,TT 5-3 .625
Big Ten (8) Ill,Ind,Mich,MichSt,OSU,PSU,Pur,Wis 3-5 .375
C-USA (6) EC,Hou,Mem,SMiss,Tul,UCF 2-4 .333
ACC (8) BC,Clem,FSU,GT,Mary,UVa.,VT,WF 2-6 .250
WAC (4) BSU,FresSt,Haw,Nev 1-3 .250
Independents (1) Navy 0-1 .000
MAC (3) BallSt,BG,CMich 0-3 .000
