Re: Ohio State -vs- USC
Part of the reason there is so much OSU hate is that they seem to always have really HUGE "Games of the century" early in the year...hmmm....wonder why that might be?
Don't hate, write YOUR favorite schools AD and tell him YOU want to see your team play meaningful games against top flight ooc teams in September too! Stop scheduling Coastal Carolina and Citadel, man up and play Cal, USC, Texas, Oklahoma, et al...
Back to THIS game. 18 returning starters from a team that played in the NC game a year ago, and some people are predicting blowout. The two best players in the country (on their respective sides of the ball) will be playing for the Scarlet and Grey. There are several first round NFL caliber players who stayed for this very type of game. This is a battle tested team that KNOWS big games in hostile environments. They are well coached. They have the highest of expectations. They have shown almost nothing but vanilla looks on offense and defense. They WILL come to play 4 quarters of football.
This is a damned good football team, and they are going to surprise a lot of people Saturday night.
