I don't see how this article has anything to do with the buckeyes. Other than saying we were/are over-rated. The author is from california. As far as I am concerned, and remember I am a buckeye fan, he has a valid point. The USC Trojans have not played a good football team yet. They are still untested. I think they are a good team, but how good is yet to be determined. I wouldn't judge anything by beating a very poor OSU team.
I have finally given in to the fact that the big 10 is a weak conference. I was holding out, hoping last saturday would be a silencing game for everyone who said that, but it wasn't. It proved them right. When a team that has 18 returning starters can be whipped so easily by a team with new quaterback, and running backs, and I don't know how many first time starters, then I'd have to admit that the returning team was over-rated and pretty weak. Anyways, good luck to USC the rest of the year.

Of the 10 schools remaining on USC's football schedule, who do you consider a worthy opponent to justify USC's #1 ranking ?
Florida Buckeye

I hate to say it--but, the Trojans are great. Yes, they beat us without our star player and we were one deminsional. But we could have beatened many teams in the top 20 on saturday--but not the Trojans. USC deserve the number one ranking. They are sound on both sides of the ball, fast and strong, and have great coaches. Who can beat them? Florida, Georgia, Mizzo, Please!! They killed us--USC would bury the others. Go Bucks!

On a final note--The Big ten is not weak. Watch Penn. State, and Wisconsin roll.

just-Rog,
Maybe you misunderstood me. I'm not saying Usc doesn't deserve it, just you can't judge how good they are by beating Ohio State. That's how bad I think we are right now. I can honestly see OSU getting beat anywhere from 3 to 5 more times this year.
And Fla. Buckeye, you should take off your blinders. I am truely a die-hard Buckeye fan, but we suck. Even with Wells we wouldn't beaten So.Cal. The big ten is terrible outside of conference. Oh sure, we can beat the hell out of most div. II schools, oh wait, where was App. St. from? Oh well, There's always next year to prove I'm right too.
