Dear Mr. Anderson:
This is what I have been saying for years.
Putting all of OSU’s eggs in the Michigan basket is a mistake!
With no in-state rival, OSU needs to foster rivalries with West Virginia and Notre Dame.
Then, when they face championship-caliber teams, they will be battle-tested.
Look at LSU’s gauntlet this year:
“L.S.U. finished its campaign at 15-0, having conquered Alabama, Auburn, Florida and Texas. It defeated Georgia for the Southeastern Conference championship in early December and then disassembled Oklahoma in one of the semifinal games that set Monday’s matchup in New Orleans. In the title matchup, the team rallied from a 10-point second-quarter deficit to defeat Clemson.”
