CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Conventional wisdom said everything would shake out. On Dec. 8, undefeated Ohio State would find out its opponent in the BCS National Championship Game. But more than a month after the initial BCS standings were released, that scenario is becoming more far-fetched.
Three weeks remain in the season and the Buckeyes still find themselves rooting for Alabama and Florida State to lose. Time is running out on the dream season.
“A lot to work on,” said head coach Urban Meyer following a 60-35 win at Illinois Saturday.
After 22 consecutive wins, Ohio State being in its current position is unthinkable to many. The scarlet and gray can first air complaints in the direction of the Big Ten.
