Buckeye fans are so stupid...

Post by MWmetalhead » Sun Dec 03, 2017 5:06 pm

Sorry, but there's no way in hell Ohio State deserved the no. 4 seed in the BCS playoff over Alabama.

Alabama lost to one of the best teams in the country a couple weeks ago and otherwise had a great resume this season.

Ohio State, meanwhile, got defeated soundly by Oklahoma (which in & of itself is not a disqualifier), barely held off Penn State at home, and got its teeth gnashed in by Iowa.

How on earth can ANYONE believe Ohio State (with two losses on the year and a humiliating defeat at the hands of Iowa) deserves to be in the BCS playoff, but not the Crimson Tide?

Add to that list USA Today writer Dan Wolken.

This one isn't even a close call IMO. Ohio State has 2 losses, Alabama has 1. End of story.

Not familiar with the guy from USA Today, but judging from the article you linked, he is a real dope. His logic is, well, illogical! :)

He complains that Alabama didn't beat an "elite" team. I'll give him that OSU had a tough schedule (2nd toughest in the country) but Alabama's wasn't exactly a cupcake schedule - they ranked #10 overall in SOS.

A 1-loss team in the SEC is going to be ranked ahead of a 2-loss team in the Big 10, under almost ALL circumstances.

I am not making a claim for Ohio State but I don't think Alabama was a "no brainer"
OSU is 3-1 against top 20 teams and 2-1 against top 10 teams.
Alabama is 1-1 against top 20 teams and 0-1 against top 10 teams.
Those are teams as they are ranked now. In my book you don't get credit for beating a "#3" team in early September that ends up 6-6 in November. In that case you beat a fraud.

Soon as Alabama made the playoffs it was a forgone conclusion that they would win the title. Which is why anybody who thought they should have been left out over their lone loss was just crazy.

90% of those people are either Alabama haters who wanted to deny them a chance at the title or Ohio State fans.
