The entire reason for May to exist is for him to try and goad Buckeye fans into frothing hatred. The guy is a paid court jester. He gets people to watch ESPN.  His actual "analysis" is as plain jane as you can get.

Rutgers + Maryland  = East coast TV exposure.  Rutgers is practically in NYC. That's a heck of a media market to be a part of. 

Expanded TV/media exposure  = more $$$$ for the B1G.

More $$$$ for the B1G = better football programs (except for Ferentztown)

Better football programs = better conference. 

I think Rutgers will grow their program into respectability. Maryland? Maybe. 

Follow the money.

Those are known as TV numbers, and in 1968, the black must've shown up better on TV than white did (hard to believe, but we're talking 1968 television technology (often black and white sets) and maybe the white didn't provide enough contrast.

Alabama is not overrated. They are a quality program. LSU and Auburn are also great programs.

The problem is, SEC 'dominance' unnecessarily inflates all other SEC teams' rankings.  Thus, the AP (and others) overrank the SEC also-rans, especially when they beat one of their own conference's top dogs.  Texas A&M creamed South Carolina (who was conveniently over-ranked in the preseason top 10.)  Guess what? A&M must be amazing, and must deserve to be the 9th best team in the country (A&M even received two first place votes in week 2, after 1 game.) Same thing happened with Ole Miss and Mississippi State. A B1G analogy would be ranking a #11 5-0 Minnesota team #1 after an upset of #3 Ohio State. Would the AP ever do this? Honestly? But they had no problem putting Ole Miss up there after beating Alabama.

That was Bosa's fault. He's got to chuck Henry. He let him go.

Corey Smith is a boss on ST.  He needs to work on his hands at WR.
