I know, but could you imagine the argument put forth by Texas if they got to play Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. And Won?

I mean, they'd have beaten Bama and Oklahoma, and if Florida wins, they can say, "So, we beat both the teams that got you #1 too" and if Oklahoma wins, Texas can say "So, we beat you already, and beat Bama, and would beat you again."

Plus one game argument would be all the rave the entire off season. But now, Texas is expected to beat a 2 loss Ohio State, and Bama is expected to beat a mid major Utah.

I see your point, and, too a degree, you are right. I also want to reiterate that Texas Tech got royally EFFED. Ole Miss? At 8-4? C'mon! I know they couldn't get a BCS bowl because of the "two teams max per conference rule", but Ole Miss?

I guess, in all fairness, OSU should be playing Utah. I think they are ranked about the same, and it's probably considered a better "level game" to have Texas and Bama in one and OSU/Utes in another BCS Bowl.

But whooping up on Utah is NOT what the Buckeyes program needs right now, so I have to confess that I'm happy with the way things played out. If we beat #3 Texas the season is, to a degree, saved, because it springboards us into '09 in the top 5.

I DO NOT think Texas is overrated. In my book, they are definitely the 3rd best team in the country, and I think they are the only team left besides Oklahoam that could beat Florida. I DO think that this Buckeye team underachieved this year, and when they played USC they were without Wells and Pryor. Those two players comprise probably 75% of the Buckeyes offense.

Ohio State is lucky they aren't having to play Utah because its a huge TRAP game for whoever goes into that bowl. You can't lose that game and earn respect. OSU can lose to Texas and as long as its close, people will nod and say, Good Job Buckeyes. If they'd have drawn Utah and lost...never live it down.

Bama is in a must win situation. Of coarse if they lose people will say, "they didn't want to be there". But still its a lot to ask to get up and beat a team that hasn't lost yet all year when you are looking at the TV and see a team that you barely lost to playing for that Crystal Trophy.

Disagree about the Utes and the Bucks. OSU has a HUGE chip on their shoulder, and Utah's best win of the year was beating Michigan by a few points.

Tress would pour it on.

Its a good point, if OSU can bet the win over Texas it catapults them into a very strong off season.
