Buckeyes couldn’t stand SEC heat

The Ohio State Buckeyes gobbled up the “competition” in the Big Ten this season. But if they’re in the SEC, you’re looking at a three-loss team.

Think the Buckeyes would be unbeaten after facing Auburn, Florida, Tennessee and Arkansas ON THE ROAD? The LSU Tigers had to make those trips. And how would the Buckeyes have fared before a full house in Death Valley?

Georgia, Kentucky and South Carolina would’ve also given Ohio State a run for its money.

The Buckeyes, the darlings of the BCS, would’ve had a difficult time making it to the SEC championship game this season. Put the Buckeyes in a national playoff field with some of the SEC’s finest, and the letters BCS would take on a different meaning – Buckeyes Couldn’t Survive.

And if you’re looking for Ohio State to play a team in the SEC during the regular season anytime soon, forget it. They won’t face an SEC opponent through 2010.

Get rid of the BCS and crown a champion the way champions should be crowned – through a playoff system.

Congratulations, Buckeyes. You've conquered your opponents. May the force…uh…BCS… be with you.

Give me an freakin' break! Ohio State would have wiped butts in the weak SEC. Which school in the SEC had any marquee wins outside the SEC? So what makes you think it's any good. Maybe Ohio St. isn't playing any SEC teams, but that's because the SEC is to gutless to play outside the conference. The Buckeyes went to the home field of the defending national champions this year and beat them. Arkansas, the darling of the SEC, got reamed 50-14 at home by former champ USC. Before you get haughty-tauty about the SEC you need a reality check!

Jimmy you like apples?

IS SEC THE BEST? The SEC finished the regular season with a pair of impressive non-conference victories - Georgia over No. 16 Georgia Tech and South Carolina over No. 24 Clemson. And Georgia and South Carolina are in the middle of the pack in the SEC with a combined nine losses. The SEC finished 41-7 in non-conference games for tops in the nation. The SEC also finished the regular season with the most teams ranked with five - Florida, LSU, Arkansas, Auburn and Tennessee. And Georgia almost got in. SEC games were also closer than those of any other league with an 11.1-point average margin of victory. More than 60 percent of the SEC games were decided by 10 points or less.

How bout them apples?
