Re: Ohio State -vs- USC
Better to play Louisiana Lafayette I guess.
I'll laugh the next time a situation arises like what happened to Auburn. So arrogant...when the SEC takes a dip (and it will...these things are all cyclical) and you try to use in-conference strength as an argument, it won't work.
Also, who's to say the Big Ten won't be the toughest conference 5 years from now? Will the Buckeys say "Oh, wait, we scheduled Oklahoma and they're preseason #1 this year...we can't play them since the Big Ten is too tough!"
Of course not...
Cyclical...enjoy it while you can, because it won't last.
Finally, the sticking point was travel. Florida said "Sure you can come to the Swamp, but we're not going to the Shoe".
