It doesn't matter if Ohio State wins or loses that game. ESPN and their blind sheep followers will make sure that the Buckeyes are in a position to play in the MNC game come January the same way they were last season.

Here's a good read for any SEC Fans: Sporting News

http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn...c.php?t=422378

1. Florida: Hawaii, Miami, Citadel, at Florida State
2. Tennessee: at UCLA, UAB, Northern Illinois, Wyoming
3. Georgia: Georgia Southern, Central Michigan, at Arizona State, Georgia Tech
4. South Carolina: North Carolina State, Wofford, UAB, at Clemson
5. Auburn: Louisiana-Monroe, Southern Miss, at West Virginia, Tennessee-Martin
6. Ole Miss: Memphis, at Wake Forest, Samford, Louisiana-Monroe
7. Arkansas: Western Illinois, Louisiana-Monroe, at Texas, Tulsa
8. Alabama: vs. Clemson, Tulane, Western Kentucky, Arkansas State
9. Mississippi State: at Louisiana Tech, Southeastern Louisiana, at Georgia Tech, Middle Tennessee.
10. Vanderbilt: at Miami (OH), Rice, Duke, at Wake Forest
11. LSU: Appalachian State, Troy, North Texas, Tulane
12. Kentucky: at Louisville, Norfolk State, Middle Tennessee, Western Kentucky
Quick observations:
• Louisiana-Monroe is a member of the SEC West by proxy. How's this for generating revenue: Get your butt handed to you three times, collect nearly $3 million. Unless, of course, Alabama is on the list. Then you get $800K and a nice win.
• Imagine if this season were earlier this decade, and look at Florida's schedule. Even with FSU and Miami's decline -- and Hawaii's natural regression this fall -- the Gators still have the league's toughest noncon schedule. Of course, it wouldn't be the SEC if a I-AA (Championship Subdivision) team weren't sprinkled in there somewhere.
• LSU and Kentucky should be embarrassed. Kentucky, to a point, is understandable: three gimme games are a must to reach bowl status. But LSU? Shameful.
Top five games: Georgia at Arizona State; Auburn at West Virginia; Alabama vs. Clemson (in Atlanta); Tennessee at UCLA; Arkansas at Texas.
Bottom five games: Citadel at Florida; Wofford at South Carolina; Tennessee-Martin at Auburn; Norfolk State at Kentucky; Southeastern Louisiana at Mississippi State.
Games against BCS schools: 15 (out of 48): 31 percent.

SEC, padding their schedules once again.

Schedule padding accusations against the SEC?

The Big Ten has scheduled heavyweights such as Youngstown State, Coastal Carolina, Northern Iowa, and Illinois State.

Haven't seen their breakdown yet, but OSU vs USC is a very Legit matchup and OSU vs Texas for a home and home 2 years ago was a great OCC schedule.

But yeah, I'll bash the SEC all day, every day. Playing the teams they play year in and year out with the OCC is ridiculous. What happens when they have to travel to another school in the BCS? They Get Smoked. Tennessee got crushed by Cal, Auburn lost at home to South Florida, Arkansas got waxed home and away by USC. Play someone legit on the road and then, maybe I'll be impressed. Playing the Title game in your back yard LSU doesn't impress me, not after 8 home games already.

Michigan lost to Applachian State.

End of debate. The Big Ten is a joke.

Michigan was a joke, losing back to back to Ap State and Oregon...but they made up for it a little going on the road to punch Florida right in the face in a bowl game.

Great. Jeremy is back. Hurray. I was wondering why the mood of the board just turned suicidal...

As usual, facts trump miserable knee-jerk reactions

Big Ten OOC games in 08
Illinois plays Missouri
Iowa plays Pitt
Michigan plays Notre Dame
MSU plays Cal and Notre Dame
Northwestern plays Syracuse
OSU plays USC on the road
PSU plays Oregon State
Purdue plays Oregon and Notre Dame
