It always cracks me up how people respond to things on these forums. The question was clearly is this the Best Ohio State Regular Season Ever? It doesn't matter what happens the next 2 weeks or if teams were dominant in the past and didn't win a title or any of that. So why even bring it up?!?!?!
Ok, rant over. To answer the question, yes this is absolutely the greatest regular season ever for this program. Last week is when it hit me just how great this team is. When they turned the ball over 3 times, one of them basically erasing a TD and 2 handing scores to PSU who was a top 10 team, and then still won by double digits, I said WHOA, this team is scary good. Last year under those conditions we probably lose by 11 points, and last year's team was a pretty good Buckeye squad.
It's worth questioning how good the slate was this year compared to others. I know our out of conference foes have done pretty well, but watching UC yesterday, I'm not sure we wouldn't be favored by damn near 40 if we played again. The B1G seemed to be solid, but the conference does have a lot of offense challenged teams, which I think have inflated the conference's overall defensive rating. Even still, we've played a tougher slate than several of our peers and have dominated more than those peers have as well. This has been one hell of a season. I hope we close the deal this year, but either way I haven't enjoyed a regular season this much.
