    tOSU NCAA Violation

    ESPN - Ohio State self reports NCAA violation after Tressel took players to Final Four - College Football

    If Iowa State pulled that, we'd be getting burned at the stake, but since it's Ohio State, we'll just see a slap on the wrist, if even that. I will say my hat's off to the Compliance Director who reported it and didn't try and hide it. What do you think, if anything, the NCAA will do?

    How did the NCAA "make sure" they are in the title game? Who deserves to be there more than them?

    I was essentially making a statement about the Little 11 in general. No title game, no risk. I say they don't deserve to be there because their conference is a joke IMO.

    Conference champs from better conferences such as the Big 12 or the Pac-10

    Re: tOSU NCAA Violation

    I'm no fan of the Big 10, but when Georgia,Oklahoma and USC all have more losses, and all had one bad loss to a team that didn't have a winning record, I think tOSU easily deserves it more. IMO to say the NCAA put them there is a bit silly, the above teams put them there by losing to teams without winning records that a national title contender should easily beat.

    You have to realize that most people on this board just hate the Big 10 in general. So you really aren't going to change their minds.

    The NCAA has absolutely nothing to do with who goes to what bowl games, other than the rule that 7 win teams should go before 6 win teams this year.

    I agree that the NCAA did not put tOSU in the title game but I wholeheartedly support the position that tOSU and the Big Ten in general are perpetually over-ranked. That problem I blame fully on the media even though I understand that the media has to please their audience or they won't have a job. That is the main problem with the BCS set-up and most traditional ranking systems. The Big Ten has proven repeatedly that they are not the conference they were in mid-1900s. Their performance does not live up to their formula of tradition, money, and supporters (i.e. population base).

    I tire listening to their pompous rhetoric about how fearsome they are supposed to be. Perhaps living next door to Ann Arbor (Michigan), down the road from Lansing (Michigan State), and next to Ohio accentuates my problem but it is a problem none the less.

    Georgia VS. LSU? Or maybe they could just make the SEC title game the new national title game? After all, its not Georgia's fault they lost to a team at home that was 3-5 in the SEC, and didn't even win their DIVISION of their conference, they belong in the national title game vs. LSU!

    Re: tOSU NCAA Violation

    tOSU will soon be mincemeat after LSU exposes them for the team they really are. The Big Ten will then be chagrined. I cannot think of one player that is awesome on OSU.
