You can’t take away a victory against OU by claiming OU gave it away and in the next breath discredit them for giving away 2 games against Bama. Either it’s about winning or it’s not.
My point is this, as a die hard OSU fan, I think if we had played UGA every year since 2000, alternating home and home like a conference opponent, it would likely be 10-9 or 11-8 one way or another with very few blowouts. Yes we’ve sealed the deal twice (and went down hard twice) and they didn’t the only chance they had but that’s the main difference. There is no Big Ten team that has an 8-11 record against us since 2000.
No they haven’t capitalized on the opportunities they’ve had but it is a little tougher slog in the SEC.
I’m no SEC homer by any stretch but you cant deny the depth of their conference most years.
I don’t think the gap is as large as the ESPN talking heads like to make it out to be but there is a gap.
We would not have the same number of SEC titles since 2002 as we do Big Ten titles and I think most OSU fans know it.
I have no problem with UGA being thought of as a top tier program. Obviously lots of high school kids think they are.
