A renaming is in order ... EASY STREET or BIG EASY. The nation is shaking their heads just like when the BIG named the divisions as Leaders and Legends. The Buckeyes went 12-0 against a schedule of softies ranked 60th in difficulty per the Sagarin rankings. They played four out of conference teams from power houses like UAB, UCF, Miami Ohio, and a weak (3-9) Cal team .... ALL COLUMBUS home games. They played no AP Top 15 teams. They played no out of conference AP Top 25 teams. They were ineligible to play for the BIG championship or any bowl games. Next year their schedule is even easier than last year. There is nothing to brag about here except being undefeated in a weak conference with exceptionally weak out of conference foes. Buckeyes need to Man-Up and schedule some OOC foes that will give them a good fight and get off the easy street of inflated records.
