Oh, no problem at all. I didn't take offense or anything, I was just explaining what my thought process was. It's good that you brought it up because only a very small fraction of people reading take the time to comment, so if you were confused that means there were almost certainly quite a few others who were as well, but didn't express it.
He did play against Rutgers. He had actually knocked Rutgers' quarterback out of the game after Rutgers' offensive tackle commented how he'd never given up a sack against him.
I agree a current Tweet would have been better, but there wasn't one. That's the Tweet that exists and the one where I got the all-time information from, so that's the one I cited.
I'm not trying to mislead anyone or anything, I mentioned Ohio State's current ranking and linked to the current Sagarin ratings in the post. I just assumed people would be able to read the date on the Tweet and realize that Ohio State's rating has since changed to the one that I mentioned in the post. At the very least, I figured any possible confusion could have been addressed by clicking the link provided and viewing the current Sagarin ratings. But I'll add some language to make that more clear.
Thanks for the heads up!
The Tweet is over two weeks old. It was accurate at the time, but Ohio State's score has improved since then, to the number that you see in the article. The Tweet was just included to provide the context of the other historically great scores in comparison to Ohio State's, not to suggest that's Ohio State's current score. The score in the article (and on the actual Sagarin website, which is linked in the article) is the most accurate.
Hilarious irony that this comment is on a website where a solid 90 percent of the content is created by folks with journalism degrees.
