Don't get why they would hate someone responsible for 66.6666666666% of their national championships.

The best coach in UF history abandoned them after the worst season of his career, and they've been bad-to-mediocre ever since. It may sound paradoxical, but the 2 national championships contribute to their resentment. It was a long fall from that peak, and they can't process it.

(Imagine what some commenters here would sound like if OSU goes 7-5 this year, Urban leaves for a season, and then returns to coach Notre Dame to a national championship.)

...there is no place for the BuckeyeJack's of this Internet on Eleven Warriors.

You are a barbarian who misuses apostrophes to indicate a plural noun.

I'm sorry, but my party can't support your candidacy.

I didn't dislike it, but thought it could've done better in some areas.

Fools upthread who prefer those inferior dark grays must submit to your aesthetic superiority.

To evaluate quality, I think you need to compare Ohio State's X# commitments vs. Alabama's top X#. (It doesn't make sense to say their class drops in quality because they add, say, a 3-star punter after signing 21 5- and 4-star players. I removed Blake Haubeil's rating from the comparison because IMO it artificially skews the numbers.)

This is what OSU's top 20 looks like compared to Alabama's top 20:

        Alabama      OSU
avg.  0.9653         0.9503

1      0.9982         0.9954
2      0.9980         0.9953
3      0.9921         0.9936
4      0.9878         0.9903
5      0.9865         0.9870
6      0.9834         0.9800

[Chris Spielman's] dad said, "Okay, where are you going to go?" I said, "Dad, I want to go to Michigan." And he said, "You traitor. I'll tell you where you're going. You're going right down 71 South and you're going to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes. ... Better not go there (Michigan). Don't ever come home if you do."

"Word Origin and History for blue blood:  1834, translating Spanish sangre azul, claimed by certain families of Castile as uncontaminated by Moorish or Jewish admixture, probably from the notion of the visible veins of people of fair complexion."
