I completely agree. When I was a wee lad, well before the BCS and before ESPN there were only the following goals for The Ohio State football team:
- Beat TTUN
- Win the Big Ten
- Win the Rose Bowl
To me, those are still the goals. It becomes increasingly clear as the years go by that Ohio State will not garner the same level of attention as other marquee programs for myriad reasons. I've decided to live with that since neither I nor Ohio State can control what happens in the polls/computer rankings except to just keep winning until no one can ignore it.
