Well, it's now painfully obvious that Ohio State was overrated the entire season. The only reason Ohio State was ranked so high was because they are Ohio State - I mean THEE Ohio State University. After last night, it's clear they don't belong in a BCS bowl game as they cannot hang with BCS caliber schools. Troy Smith has been exposed. He obviously doesn't deserve any of the awards that he has earned this season. So much for Jim Tressel's "genius" label. His mystique is fading.
Maybe next year the entire nation will learn it's lesson and simply crown the SEC champion as the national champs. It would save us a lot of time and debate about playoffs.
