    Debate: B1G Winning NC within 2 Years

    Alright, I had a debate over Memorial weekend with a hok fan about the B1G and their football programs. Of course the debate was over the two conferences, Big XII and B1G, and which one is a stronger football conference, then it was brought up the the B1G will win a National Championship in the next 2 years and I said no way. Of course the discussion started because of Ohio St. not being able to play in the NC this year. So I figure this would be a decent debate:

    What are your thoughts on the B1G winning the NC in the next 2 years?

    Also, I am still convinced that Ohio St. doesn't play in the NC this past year, but the is my point of view.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Ohio State play for it in the next two years. Not sure they'll win though.

    Kind of hard to argue against the fact of Ohio State going undefeated.

    Possibly. SEC may be a bit down, aTm may be the winner this year. Ohio State may be able to beat them, should be able to win out in a horrible Big 10. However, winning out in a horrible Big 10 may not be enough to get them in should a Big 12 or Pac 12 go undefeated.

    Perhaps in volleyball or wrestling, but not in football.

    They have like one outright title in over 40 years. Shocking, but true.

    I'm going with no unless the guy winning it is named Urban.

    This. They could get there, but they'll be at a disadvantage from playing a soft schedule. I'm a big believer in the SEC's grind of a schedule improving their teams as the season goes on.

    This is why I don't think Ohio St. would have made it last year. with UAB, Miami (OH) and UCF on their schedule.

    They were 1 of 2 undefeated teams. They would of made it, no question.

    Yeah, it would have been an interesting debate going undefeated but having the 101st most-difficult schedule.

    I meant it as in they wouldn't be ready for a tough opponent from the SEC; they'd be used to playing pasties all year, and conversely, the SEC teams would be ready to slaughter them.

    The safe bet is no. But, if there's a coach in the Big 10 that will win it sometime soon, it's Urban.
