Ohio State Finishes Season Ranked in the Top 10

By Kyle Rowland on January 7, 2014 at 9:24a
Ohio State took down Tajh Boyd, but it couldn't take down the Clemson Tigers.

A month ago, Ohio State thought it might be waking up this morning as national champions. Instead, the Buckeyes lost their final two games and finished No. 10 in the Coaches Poll and 12th in the AP Poll. Florida State, Auburn, Michigan State, South Carolina and Missouri are the consensus top 5. 

Four Big Ten teams — Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Nebraska — are ranked by the coaches. Nebraska does not appear in the AP Poll. 

This is the second consecutive season the Buckeyes have finished the season in one of the top 10s. Since 2005, Ohio State's only been outside the final top 10 once — 2011.

Next year drop the 0 at the end of our ranking for this year and all of us will be happy :)

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

Meh. I'm NOT sold on Auburn being ranked ahead of Michigan State.

We would beat Stanford anywhere. Otherwise, I have no gripes.

Top 5. FSU, MSU, Oklahoma, Auburn, Clemson would be fair, South Carolina and Mizzou ranked too high. ( sec,sec...)
Thank God these polls are now truly meaningless.
