Bull. They can definitely help who they play out of conference. They had a weak out of conference schedule. They didn't even schedule a road game out of conference. How many teams in the nation didn't play a single out of conference road game this year? I bet that is a short list.
What the heck are you talking about as far as an apology? I am not asking anything from OSU. I am just telling you what I see. I don't see a great team. I don't see a team that is truly deserving of a #1 or #2 ranking even though they are undefeated. The Houston Cougars were undefeated going into their conference championship last year. I didn't think they should have been the top ranked team, either. There were better teams with worse records, just like this season.
