Which is it? Is being undefeated the be all end all or not?
You never answered the question about Houston from last year. Did them playing in a weak conference matter? I thought it did. Or the fact OSU didn't even schedule a out of conference road game this season. You choose to ignore that fact.
I know college football. I have watched it for years. I can see when teams are great and when they are not. OSU is not a great team this season. They just have an undefeated record. I would take several teams over them this year.
I didn't change my stance. I was responding to your argument as to why a 1 loss Alabama was ranked ahead of Ohio St in the AP Poll. The SEC is going to get the benefit of the doubt, unfortunately that's a reality. A 2 loss team from that conference played and won a national championship, a few 1 loss teams have been selected over other teams to play in the BCS title game. That's just a fact.
Being undefeated is all that matters. You can't get any better than that. If Ohio St or any team for that matter were undefeated and didn't get to play for the national championship something is severely wrong.
I didn't even see that you asked about Houston.
Anyway, Houston doesn't even play in a BCS conference. Are you serious right now with this? There was no way they were going to play for the title and even trying to make the comparison that the Big 10 is equal to Conference USA is laughable if that is where you are going.
Ohio St. didn't schedule a road non-con game because they started a home and home with Cal this season. The first of those games happened to be at Ohio St. Did Georgia, South Carolina, LSU play a non-con road game besides their annual rivalry games? No. Is that going to make a difference in you giving Ohio St credit if they did? No. Man do you pay attention to what is going on at all. You are seriously irritating at this point. I don't mind a good debate but when you come off not knowing what you are talking about it makes the conversation less enjoyable.
