As a Life-Long fan of Ohio State, I can say that after living in Nashville for the past 7 years I am not excited to see what Franklin can do with at PSU with a program with richer history and lower academic requirements. He's a Great Coach and that will make every victory over Penn State all the more satisfying. Rivalry / No Rivalry...meh... as far as distaste goes, I don't really care for any team other than the Bucks...in my life time they've all beaten us at one point, and I don't forgive, nor forget, those times.
I half agree with you, Russian-Pooh.
But I don't think it was "fair" when Oregon Jumped us for beating Nichol St. when we beat Buffao. Clemson Beat Georgia (top 5 matchup), they Jumped us, fine; they both proceeded to loose more yet we did not climb back up. Florida St. beat Clemson and Miami which is great for them, but does that imply that we couldn't do the same? if not, why do we get jumped? What is the reason for Baylor Jumping Ohio State? So, while I understand that it's a circular argument on both sides, but if the Preseason Coaches Poll matters, then why should we have been jumped? if it doesn't matter, then why hasn't FSU and Baylor jumped Alabama?
Either way, Whatever, OSU is 22-0, I like our team better than theirs. I'll root for us to win every game and I'll be so happy if we can go undefeated again this year. Period.
I don't really think it was taken out of context, but here's the link from the plain dealer, you can decide for yourself...
