I think we end the year about fifth. We'll drop behind some bowl-winners.

UGA still ahead of K-State?? Also a big f*ck u to all the voters that are putting us in the 6-12 range

Notre dame with all 60 first place votes?! SEC is down this year but I figured Ohio State, Stanford and bama would get a few.  
Next year we run the table and smash an SEC school.

If Pitt hadn't gotten screwed, Ohio State would have a shot. And by shot I mean get bounced to 6th when Stanford beats Wisconsin.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Josh Kendall (The State, Columbia, SC) still has the Buckeyes 12th. Joe Giglio (Raleigh News & Observer, NC) and Pete DiPrimio (Fort Wayne News-Sentinel, IN) have Ohio State 10th. Absurd.

These morons need their voting privileges revoked. It's obvious that they don't take it seriously when they have the 2nd undefeated team in the country ranked tenth or lower, behind several two-loss teams. This makes me sick.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

Said it elsewhere before but it's complete BS for some voters to manipulate the system and claim a down conference or indifference to the Buckeyes as an excuse for their voting patterns. Only five other teams in the last ten years were undefeated this late and not ranked ahead of all one-loss teams: Hawaii, Boise State, Utah, TCU and Ball State. Undefeated? You land at the top by default in EVERY case unless you're a non-AQ - or the 2012 Ohio State Buckeyes.
I'd go so far as to call it unethical and conduct unbecoming of voter status, but what do I know.

While I am undeniably content with a 12-0 undefeated season and extremely excited for next year already. Here's is my quandry: I REALLY WANT an A.P. National Title. Georgia loses to Alabama on the last play from scrimmage, and drops to #6. However, this same tumult will not befall Notre Dame should they happen to lose the BCS National Championship Game. I was willing to entertain the idea that perhaps given the way Alabam had to struggle with Georgia, that maybe, JUST MAYBE, there was a chance. Given this week's poll, I don't think it will happen. Too many voters either rank OSU too low, or DO NOT rank them at all!! It's mind-numbing to read about all the holy-than-thou reasons as to why this is the case, but bottom line is the answer is bias. Absolute, unadulterated BIAS!!

And you know what? I'm content with that. Hate this team all you want AP voters. Because next year those teams you all seem to love so much have all seen the warning shots. Next year: WE ARE COMING FOR YOU!!!

12-0 can quell of a lot of anger.

I think we will end up 2nd in the ap poll, close but not close enough.  It's been a great year regardless of what anyone says.

I think we'll end up 2nd in the final AP poll, but only if ND beats Alabama. If Alabama beats ND, or worse, thumps them, then we could see another SEC team jump Ohio State into #2.

K-State does not get any respect. Played a great game against a ranked opponent and does not move above a two loss Georgia? Meh. Also,Collin Klein deserves the Heisman in my opinion. He carried K- State to victories all year except that one crappy loss to Baylor.

If Notre Dame has all the first place votes and Bama wins do you think we get any first place votes being the only undefeated?

Grant Edgell's picture

.....not if Bama blows them out. If it's reasonably close (and Bama wins) I think it's possible that Ohio State would get a handful of 1st place votes but sure as hell not many. Might begin and end with Doug Lesmerises.

I hope Coach Urbs is channeling all this rage into creating a hungry, ANGRY team that will blow everyone out by 4+ scores next year. FUCK THA HATERS!!
