Default Interesting Strength of Schedule Fact about Ohio State

We were talking over lunch about the fact that OSU doesn't play anybody and how they don't deserve to be in the title game. It got me thinking about FSU, since the ACC is a terrible conference too. Here's what I found....

OSU: 61st toughest schedule
FSU: 66th toughest schedule

I hate OSU, but I guess we need to stop bashing their schedule...unless we want to bash FSU's too.

Agreed. I hate OSU. With a passion. I don't want them anywhere near the National Championship. But they deserve it more than Auburn in my opinion.

Default Re: Interesting Strength of Schedule Fact about Ohio State

Here's the beef with OSU. It's not just their schedule. It's that they've looked very bad against bad teams. See the Michigan game. At times, they've looked good - especially on offense. On defense, they have issues and have been exposed against a weak schedule.

The same can't be said for FSU. While their schedule has been weak, they've dominated nearly every opponent. That's why no one is questioning them.

However, FSU beat every opponent on that 66th toughest schedule handily.

I'm calling bullshit on this unless you produce a source. Pretty much everyone has the Big Ten as being worse than the ACC this year (outside of The Mothership and their Big Ten alumni on the production staff).

It's all dependent on which sos polls. One has osu at 80. What I love is how the big 10 is beating their chests about not playing any fcs teams going forward yet they play all those bad mac teams

Florida State is #4....OSU is #30

This is strictly based on stats.....which I think is the most reliable. We are #17.

According to Sagarin, strength of schedule FSU is #66 OSU is #61. We are #28 taters
are #53. FSU is 1-0 against top 30. Ohio St is 2-0.

Okay....So who didn't know both of these teams schedules were a damn joke? everyone with common sense have been bashing both of these teams for 12 games now for not scheduling anybody to play. I for one am ready for the playoff system to start.

All this year is showing is that it is better to be in a bad conference and schedule zero tough OOC games and hope to go undefeated then to play legit competition week in and week out. NIU is as deserving as OSU of being in the NC game.
