You've hardly been a model of respect towards the Buckeyes.

But that's fine...there's plenty of hate for them around the Country. We don't mind, we still win lots and lots of football games...and more NC's are on the way.

rly?

i give respect to osu when they deserve it.. i'm with u saying that benie wells is a effing beast... that james l is a nasty lb and so forth.. but i guess thats not respect

i only hate when ppl try to talk up there team when they haven't done anything in the season.. that goes for all teams, even psu,.. i mean evryone and there moms (or at least the big programs) should be able to beat/destroy the weak ass opponents

Winning the Big Ten outright two years in a row, playing in the NC game 3 out of 5 years, and winning the title outright in 2002 ought to be enough to earn the respect of ANY football fan, yet it's not enough.

You are backtracking now, by the by, which is fine and understandable. To address the thing about "weak-assed teams", the year they went 14-0 and won the NC, they struggled mightily against a then pretty awful Cincinnati (23-19) and needed a miracle 4th down TD pass to beat a very mediocre Purdue.

EVERY team struggles from time to time against inferior competition. It means nothing as long as the better team wins.

Do you REALLY want me to go back through your posts and pull up all the Buckeye hating posts? There are more than just a few...

I wouldn't bother anyway.

As I CLEARLY stated, there are 118 other programs who would have killed to be runner-up two years in a row, Hell, we made the big game in a rebuilding year last year, which is a mighty task in and of itself. How many teams have never BEEN to a NC game? How many have never WON a NC game.

When was the last time PSU went and won?

History only seems to matter to people when they are touting their own.

Schools in session, Junior...

PSU is a nice program, better than many, but they don't really hold up versus OSU history wise, recently or all time. I'm tossing out the stupid remark about NC games, because there ARE levels of failure, and failing to even make the big game is a lot higher level of failure than making the game and losing.

I bolded the program with the advantage:


Ohio State

- 7 Heisman winners (Tied with ND for the most)
- 18 Wins in 39 Bowl Appearances
- 7 Pro Football HOFers
- 175 All-Americans (1st team)
- 34 Conference titles
- 7 Time National Champions (Unrecognized in 1933)
- 1 of 5 teams with over 800 all-time wins (803-304-53 .725)
-Won 34 of the listed major college football trophies. Next best is Oklahoma with 26. Of the five awards created prior to 1980 (Heisman, Lombardi, Maxwell, Outland, and Walter Camp), Ohio State has received the most with 25 (Notre Dame follows with 23).
- 66 First Rd NFL selections, 2nd only to USC (67)
- 4-2 in BSC games, including 2002 NC


Penn State

- Only 1 Heisman winner
- 26-12-2 in 40 bowl appearances
- 5 Pro Football HOFers
- 107 All Americans
- Only 2 conference titles (granted, this one isn’t fair, as they have only been in the Big Ten a relatively short time, but I’m doing apples to apples, so…)
- Only 2 National Championships
- 797-347-42 all-time (.690)
- 23 Awards, only 13 of the biggies
- Only 1-0 in BCS games with no NC’s
- Can’t find anything on 1st round draft picks, but since I know it's 1,2 USC, OSU that means PSU can be, at best, #3.

pwnd!

including a 14-5-1 (0.725) record in the so-called "major" bowls (Rose, Orange, Sugar, Fiesta, and Cotton).

don't forget that psu has 12 coaching awards..

Lambert Trophy - 1947, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2005

psu has had 7 undefeated seasons.. and we all know that psu should have had more NC but bcs and president nixon screwed us over.. def in 68 and 69

also psu didn't have a program for about 4 yrs.. beleive 82 to 86 so there are some games that could ended uo either as wins or losses.. never know..


throw out the big 10 conference titles stat out the window... since psu is recently new to the conference...

and osu only has 5 d1 NC the other 2 were like dee dee awards
joe pa is the only coach to have won all five major college bowls during his career.
