I know we are all Ohio State fans, so we are bias, but what would you do if you had no bias towards Ohio State?
Would you rather play at Ohio State and face stiff competition every year, thereby possibly limiting the numbers that you can put up and not make the playoff every year since it's a much harder conference? Or would you rather play in a soft conference, put up absurd numbers (looks good to NFL scouts) on inferior competition, make the playoffs literally every year and therefore have the chance to compete for championships?
It's really not a hard sales pitch to make. Dabo isn't a mastermind. It's just rigged in his favor until there is other competition in the ACC (which doesn't look to be happening any time soon).
