Re: A Fierce Ohio
They drop to probably 5 or 6 and deservedly so. I remember the year they won the NC, they barely beat Cinci like on the last play or whatever early in the season (and this was when the Bearcats were AWFUL). The haters pounced, the faithful fretted, and they turned out JUST fine.
Beside, this one word is like Holy Water to a vampire, or a crucifix or garlic to a USC fan, and instantly shuts all smack running down:
No matter WHAT Carroll accomplishes, you lost to the Cardinal on your own turf. A HORRIBLE Cardinal, one of the worst teams in D1-A football.
This Ohio team would have beaten the Cardinal in Stanford by two TD's last year. A feat that USC couldn't accomplish.
