By saying I expect OSU to win does NOT in ANY way mean i think it will be easy.
But this team has overcome far more than a solid football team to get where they are now. I take my opinion of saying OsU may win because the coaching staff and players will put in the work to make it happen.
I think they will win because the rest of America says they won't. And motivation is a big, sometimes deciding factor.
I say osu will win because I'm a fan of the best damn college football team there is, scoreboard be damned.
I believe OSU will beat Alabama. I do not, nor will I ever believe it will be easy, and I don't think most people expecting osu to win will or have ever thought it would be easy.
There's a difference.
