Saturday, October 27, 2007No Respect
Check out these Stats:
2007 (after 9 games)
Another interesting stat: 27 consecutive regular season wins.
As I am sure you have guessed at this point, I am talking about The Ohio State Buckeyes.
Why don't they get any respect? If these numbers were put up by USC, or Florida, or Texas, or LSU people would be fawning all over them. They would be talking about a Dynasty. There would be ESPN specials and movies made.
But because of how the Buckeyes lost in the Championship game, very very badly, they don't get any respect. Which isn't exactly fair. The Buckeyes have been on an awesome run over the past 2.5 seasons. They have had exactly 1 bad game, where they were totally outplayed, and now no one gives them any credit for what they have done?
Meanwhile, people are talking about what an upset it was today when a 5TH RANKED Oregon beat a 12TH RANKED USC team. A. Just based on the rankings, it is not an upset. B. USC isn't a very good team this year. Anyone who has watched their games this year can see that they weren't very good. But for some reason people still consider them a great team. WRONG. They were good 2 years ago. They were pretty good last year. They are not good at all this year. A twelve ranking was too high for them. They should drop down to about 22 after today. But they won't. They'll drop to about 18.
The inconsistency drives me insane. Makes me too wordy. Makes me want to beat up people who live with me.
