OSU and reality
« on: October 26, 2019, 06:10:28 PM »
We B1G Ten fans need to come to grips with reality. OSU is on another level than the rest of the conference. It started with Meyer and it will clearly continue under Ryan Day. That dood can coach and recruit.

They are going to steamroll anyone in their path for the rest of this season, and I'd pick them to destroy anyone they come up against in the playoff.

The biggest question is whether any other school in this conference can catch up. 

I don't see it.

We are the B1G OSU and little 13 (some littler than others).

I don’t feel that way at all.  I predict right now that Ohio State will not even run the table this year- penn state and Michigan back to back is just about impossible.

Neither team is close to OSU.

I dunno seems MSU having some tough off seasons hamstrung Sparty who could ham string the Buckeyes.PSU seems to be climbing out from under the weight of sanctions so we'll see.Definitely need some balance but CFB could be at a cross roads.Enjoy the games while we have them

It’s painful to admit,  but it’s the truth. To add another layer to the topic, it’s possible Michigan can’t get an elite QB because what sane human would want to face Bosa, Bosa, Chase Young in a career? Just career suicide in your biggest game.

Penn State, M*ch, and B1G Championship game, according to ESPN is the toughest 3 weeks of football anyone plays this year.

I'm gonna claim a bit of a knee jerk reaction here.

Wisconsin made some weird choices for this game. (Like not putting 2 defenders on Young, overloading sides on defense, and never softening the rush attack with simple passes.)

Also the game in Columbus, made it harder on the Badgers.

I firmly don't believe OSU is head and shoulders above the other elite in the conference. The B1G is definitely not the ACC.

There's no question that this year's OSU team is a different beast.  Similar to Clemson last year or Alabama in 2009.  I don't think that means that they are going to dominate the conference year in and year out in this sort of fashion.  Look back at last year.  Purdue beat them.  And they played some very close games against other conference teams.  Penn State and Maryland (in OT) were both one point victories while Nebraska was only a five point victory.  Teams will rise and fall.  Ohio State will always be at or near the top.

That said....Michigan shouldn't worry OSU one bit.  Penn State shouldn't be taken lightly.  If there is one other team in the conference that I think has the speed, size and talent to keep up with the Buckeyes.....it's the kitties.  And that's not to take anything away from my Gophers.  They keep playing better and better each week.  But it is impossible to judge this team based upon who they've played.

Last two seasons- OSU going on the road after tough, emotional home wins, got smoked by 2 teams nowhere near as good as the two teams at the end of this year’s schedule.
