100 Days of SEC Domination: Day 91 – I’m Still Not Impressed By Ohio State
Yesterday I mentioned Ohio State’s shortcomings in 2012. Well, if Ohio State played in the Southeastern Conference and suffered the same embarrassing close-calls against other SEC teams, here’s what those six close wins would look like:
- 35-28 Win at home over Auburn (same record as California).
- 17-16 win over Ole Miss (same record as Michigan State).
- 52-49 win over Tennessee (one game better than Indiana).
- 29-22 overtime victory at home over Missouri (one game worse than Purdue).
- 21-14 win over Mississippi State (half a game better than Wisconsin).
- 26-21 win over Ole Miss (one game worse than Michigan).
If that was one half of an SEC’s team’s schedule, they’d be subject to ridicule. Why? Because if that’s how a team fared week after week against the bottom portion of the league, things would get ugly against Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina, Texas A&M and even Vanderbilt.
Oh, and also, the SEC is better top-to-bottom than the Big 10. So this comparison doesn’t begin to do the situation justice.
