Texas, USC, Miami, Va Tech, Cal, Oklahoma, Georgia, TCU, Oregon.

since 2005 to 2020. Home and Home.

Then we play Texas again.

Why even bother playing regular season games if you have 16 teams?

Max 8, preferably 6 with two buys.


Regular season is already meaningless as is (See Bama 2011).

I could live with 8.

And we are reportedly not scheduling non-BCS schools, except one in-state rival per year.

Very solid.

The conference was absolute shite in 2012 and everyone knows and will admit it. 2008 was TP's freshmen year where we relied solely on his and Beanie's legs (and almost knocked off a Texas team that had a NCG game argument). 2007 we backed into the NCG. The years you focused on were obvious instances where Ohio State fans would agree we weren't that good.

But acting like Ohio State always passes buy with shite opponents is ignorant.

Sorry, we dont play Georgia or Vandy. They backed out.

And I think we backed out against Tennessee.

I think the Tennessee back out was for Big 10 scheduling reasons after the expansion. I don't think we'd be afraid of a shite program.

Yeah it was, but I think Georgia and Vandy backed out for similar reasons.

Basically, you guys are proud of 6 top 20 wins in 6 years. One a year. And if you exclude 2009, OSU has 2 wins vs top 20 teams since 07. Its just horrible, no matter how you spin it. The weak schedules need to go, unless you want to be compared to BSU and TCU playing little sisters of the poor.

In 2011, LSU beat as many top 20 teams as OSU has in 6 years total.

Tennessee was to make room for the PAC 10 game which the PAC 10 then backed out of.

OOC is all we control.

We have probably the most top teams OOC as any one in the country.

If not better, just as good as anyone.

The B1G sucked last year, it's been the big 2 little 8 for a long while, this is nothing new.

Be ready.

We dont want any excuses next year. An undefeated LSU, Florida, Bama, or UGA team.

Wow, sounds like that LSU team had to of crossed the 50 at least 3 times in the NCG.

Yes, there's nobody in the Beewunjee that can handle Meyer right now. Wisconsin? Not anymore. Michigan's nothing special either. Nobody else, now that Meyer has a year under his belt. They went undefeated in the adjustment season.

Michigan had a solid class but they weren't elite players.

I think 7 of 25, had offers from bama, lsu, georgia, usc, etc.

Something like 19 of OSUs had offers from all the to schools.

Yes, because LSU has clearly shown dominance over the B1G in bowl matchups.

LSU is (7-4-1) against Big_10

Average score: LSU 29.0 - Big 10 22.7

In bowl games: LSU is (3-2) against Big_10
Average score: LSU 34.4 - Big 10 26.6


not quite dominance, but playing the weaker teams instead of sec teams would probably lead to less injuries and we'd have MAYBE one loss per year

So they would be a 7-4 team in the Big Ten.

Got it.

3-2 = not quite dominance? You're barely over .500, GTFO.
