Re: Just watched the Buckeye's Spring Game...
Last year? What does that have to do with next year? USC and Wisky almost certainly WILL be top 10 teams. Wisconsin is a sleeper NC contender. Illinois is a vastly improved program, and they get leaps and bounds better year to year. I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility for another Big Ten team to sneak into the top 10, especially since they only need to be top 10 when the Buckeyes beat them to get quality win status.
It is en vogue currently to bag on the Big Ten, but, as I stated, rumors of the conferences demise are greatly overstated....
Oh, as for the 0-9 record, there's a pretty good reason for that. Most of thoise games were played when the Bucks were lower ranked (recent games notwithstanding), and the Buckeyes don't schedule cream puff games against Vandy and the like...fact is, outside Tennessee, the power teams in the SEC refuse to accept home/home games with the Bucks...and they've asked.
