Denial is the first sign of addiction:

"I've been here for one of them," Rodriguez said. "That's the only one I can really comment on. They have one in a row on us from what I see."

Get yourself to a Loser's Anonymous meeting asap!

5 straight, O-H-I-O!

Too bad the Bucknuts couldn't do this, against USC. Or LSU. Or Florida.

Don't crow--Illinois and NU beat these guys, too, along with mighty Toledo.

Very true but what you need to understand is that in any rivalry, what's at stake even if niether team is a BCS champion contender is pride; it's about beating the other team regardless of what the records are. These two teams have a rivalry that is over 100 games. Take Navy vs Army - neither program is a football powerhouse but it doesn't matter. hey are arch enemies on the field.

Yes, but OSU is a powerhouse. And Michigan is perceived to be, maybe not this year, but historically they are. A powerhouse that just lost 5 straight to it's arch rival. And as for losing to LSU, PSU, USC, and Florida, they were better teams. I'm not a sore loser. The other teams were better, plain and simple. At least we didn't lost to Appalachian State. OSU lost to quality teams and beat quality teams.

I suppose there will always be haters, hating OSU unless they win the next 300 games in a row, the next 10 national titles, and then jump to the NFL and win the Super Bowl. Not me, it's my team since birth. And it's 5 IN A ROW!! O-H-I-O!

Understand how hard it is to win a national title in college football. If you do it once in a decade, you're a dynasty. OSU did it this decade and made it 2 more times. Very few teams can say that. The better team won 2 of those 3 match-ups. So what, OSU's still a powerhouse. Imagine if OSU played Utah's or Boise State's schedule. Even Michigan would be undefeated if they played that schedule. When you play in the Big 10, Big 12, SEC, or PAC 10, it's war every weekend. Not cream puff Montana followed by cream puff Nevada, followed by cream puff Utah State.

War, every weekend? Are you kidding me??? Did you see the scores, from yesterday? How about some of the opponents some of the big-time schools played? Florida squared off against mighty 4-7 Citadel, yesterday. Please.

And, as far as dOSU beating quality teams, I'd have to say "no"--at least, not this year. The two truly quality teams they played, USC and Penn State, they lost to both.
