You just have to be careful how you word things, and try not to sound pessimistic or like your just whining because the team didnt play perfectly or whatever the case may be. I personally will NEVER downvote someone who is simply trying to be objective, especially if they are backing up what they say with facts and evidence to support it. Just my take on it.

Smithston's problem is that he usually jumps on when someone is ripping on Michigan. Rather than let some of the silly Peppers comments go, he vociferously defends the guy and then starts to belittle any Buckeye fan that disputes him. I believe Smithton is trolling the 11w'ers here and think that some of the other commenters are trolling him back as well. 

Smithston has a less than stellar record on the site due to an acrimonious attitude, comments are not always objective, and there have been many rude and belittling comments to other commenters and moderators. That's what is bothering others and thus the downvotes.

Alabama has been given credit for coming back from a larger deficit against a worse team in an easier environment. Should we be down on our Buckeyes because they didn't play worse in the first half?

Excellent point.

The fact is our dline got eaten alive by a wisconsin team who hasnt run the ball well this year.

Not sure they got eaten alive. The largest chunk of UW rushing yardage came outside the tackles. That's not on the D-line.

So I suppose if they stomp Illinois by 25 or 30 pts, regardless of our winning score against Penn State, they will jump us in rankings?

My question is: Who cares? I want them to be ranked higher than us. Whether deserved or not, I don't care. I want OSU to be the underdog, even if just in ranking.

Well, Smithston, obviously, the Wisconsin O-line ironed some things out. And UW ran all over the Buckeyes in the first half. After halftime adjustments, UW had much less success...about 100 yards total in the second half. 

We'll see what happens when the Buckeyes play your favorite team. But I'd be sure to not to take too much away from these two games (OSU/UW and UM/UW). They were different part of the season and UW had a bye week before. Strange things can's college football.

Would you like me to sugar coat it next time? It's amazing how offended the anonymous 14 year olds get here.

Which still makes me wonder why you care about any of this? If you think everyone here is an idiot, why do you come here to spout your views?
