another narrative (that i once was guilty of buying into) was how far away OSU was from Miami in talent
OSU sent a lot of players to the draft immediately following this game, and then set the fricking record for players drafted from a school the year after. a lot of those OSU guys played in the NFL. i think it's like 20/22 or something
There was a thread a few months ago on the SECr about the talent in the Bama/LSU NCG last year.
OSU/Miami had, I believe, 38 or 39/43 starters were drafted for both teams (Gamble started both ways for OSU)
