The Buckeyes are stuck in neutral in the polls because there is a conspiracy across the nation. Simply put, the rest of America doesn't like us. So they are taking there ball home and aren't going to play with us. It is that simple. On the flipside, Florida receives unjustified love from the pollsters. Florida loses to Ole Miss at home, while OSU's loss came at USC without their best football player in Chris Wells. Unfortunately, pollsters will continue to overvalue wins in the SEC and Big XII, because they have more cache.

While I do agree that the media gives a lot of love to the SEC, Pac 10, and big XII. The big 10 and especially the buckeyes have not performed up to snuff the last few years. Unfortunately the buckeyes represent the power of the big 10 and to be honest with you they were not up to those 2 nc games. And this year the expectations were high and even though they are winning they certainly aren't impressing anybody. The D is playing fairly well but still needs improvement. And the O? Well you just never know which team is going to show up. TP's stats are going down with each game and thats mainly because teams are starting to figure the bucks offense out, especially since the passes down field are far and few between. Sometimes they almost seem to play as if they are lost. And untill they find some guy's who can pass block then the bucks could be in for some long games. Bottom line is, you can't expect to get any love from the pollsters if you are playing the way they have been.

I agree with you somewhat, but Ohio State does not have an impressive win all season. Last week's win over Purdue was anemic.

look kids its real simple tressel has a Ferrari and a Bentley in the garage but can't drive. aka Pryor and Wells. his play calling is as about predictive as the sun coming up. plays for pussy field goals and field position while the opponent plays to win the game and put it out of reach. big problem 5 guys on the o wont block and 5 guys on the d wont pressure the qb = anemic win or bad loss simple football gentlemen.

OSU's win over Michigant State was a good win. Nonetheless, OSU and the Big Ten is hated by the football world. Ignore the fact that OSU in the last 5 years have beaten four teams in the current top ten and hold a 4-2 bowl record over the past 6 years the football experts only see the last two NC games. Also, they ignore the bowl records of other big ten schools who have beaten quality teams from the SEC, Big 12 and and the PAC 10.
