Whoops, I guess the narrative really did brainwash me. Must listen to Finebaum on Walkman radio while watching SEC Network play Tim Tebow: The Lords work on the gridiron.

i guess what I'm getting at is the SEC usually gets favorable matchup close to home against lower ranked opponents. Some of these wins just aren't that impressive. Plus their two best teams lost.
I agree with your logic here. Even looking at the bad teams, the SEC had two conference teams with no wins, and four teams with losing records, including 4-8 Florida, one of their flagship teams. The fact that Mizzou won the East after being a 2nd tier Big 12 school tells you a lot about the SEC.
Last year, the conference was exposed a little bit. Bama getting beat down was huge, although Auburn was a few plays away from another "Team SEC" Championship. I think the other conferences are starting to catch up.
The 11W article you're referencing was written by DJ, and it was pure sarcasm.
Edit: Poison beat me to it.
The offense will still feature the zone-read power running game, so if any of these new faces want to see the field they better have the requisite blocking skills.
All these players are very good and could be a part of the Famed '15, but I'm really intrigued by Ward. The speed is just to hard to ignore, and I guarantee Urban knows Denzel's 40 time.
Ted Ginn Jr is the most exciting player I've ever seen play for OSU. This bad quality video still gets me out of my seat.
Marc is a cool customer, he never seems to get rattled or out of his game. He's made some freshman mistakes, but he balled against MSU and I can forgive him for the tough shot he took at the end. Smooth jumper, decent rebounder and polished in the screen game. Very well coached in HS. I think he's the next big thing at OSU.

Hey now, Antioch Football has been undefeated since 1934
Maybe it's just my soft spot for the loss of loved ones, but the Dom Tiberi tribute was extremely moving. It showed the real life side of OSU football, and how much of a family everyone associated with the program is. Powerful stuff, something I will never forget.
Mewhort got robbed. Lewan is a sore loser, a dirty player, he runs off at the mouth to the media and he was NOT a better LT than Jack Mewhort. He may get drafted higher but he did not hold down the most crucial O-Line spot for two different outstanding QBs and a DOMINANT run game. Lewan is an oaf with no brain cells, 0 leadership qualities and no team accolades. All you have ever known is failure, Taylor and this award shouldn't have your name attached to it.

I just think of the passion and hate between these two schools that has been nurtured since the Ten-Year War. Woody was about as demonstrative as it gets, and this is a page out of his "How to throw an awesome tantrum" book.
I hear where your coming from, but part of what I love about college football is the passion. I follow Clay Travis on Twitter (I know its bad) to see what the enemy is saying about us. It gets my blood boiling and in turn I get more excited when we play well and shut the haters up. It's obvious that printing anything about OSU is good press, and printing slam pieces seems to be great press.
I agree with everything you said, except the Buckeyes losing Sat night.
I think the weapon of choice will be a BrAxe.
Paris should be getting that 4th star from Rivals any day now. Electric player, with a solid support system. Sky is the limit for Mr. Campbell.
“I see myself as a big time playmaker, as a game changer,” Wilson said. “Every time I get in I tell myself that.”
I love the confidence, sky's the limit for Wilson. Can't wait to see him break a long TD run or a take a KO to the house.
