Ohio State Clinches B1G Leaders Division

Champs after just one league game. They're that good.

COLUMBUS, OH - With its defeat of Wisconsin on Saturday night, Ohio State has officially clinched both the Leaders division championship and a spot in the Big Ten Championship game, according to the official Ohio State Athletics website.

Upon the announcement, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany was reached for comment on whether it was possible for a team to clinch their division in week 4, in the hopes that he could clear up the controversy. "Sure, none of the other teams are mathematically eliminated from contention, but I mean..." said the conference commissioner. "Yes Ohio State could technically lose enough games for another team to win the division, but please. Give me a break. That would also require those teams to win games."

Delany then reproached several reporters who were not convinced that the Buckeyes had truly clinched the division. "Don't even mention that the Purdue game is an away game. Stop. No."

Following the big win, Ohio State dropped three spots in the AP poll and is projected to lose next week to Northwestern by two points.

That's funny but it would be just giving more fuel to the haters and our schedule.

tOSU had the Leaders locked up before the season even started. We homers knew this all along.

Big game this weekend! I'm glad everyone is so laid back and laughing about this because we beat Wisky so bad(not really at all). Keep your heads about you Bucks and keep your foot down on teams and DON'T let them stick around in these games!! What the heck do you call that second half??????????????????????????????????? In the words of the great Cleveland Brown "that was terrrble"  not impressive at all!! Please play the second half just like the first this weekend or we could be in trouble! O  H

Lets do this Brutus

Pretty sure it is. No one knows though.

No. We actively try to distance ourselves.

That made me laugh out loud.  Great graphics also!  Of course, this post could be a fake ...
