I am amazed at how much shit everyone talks on the OSU football program, when they know that they should be respecting a team as strong as they are. Lets look at the top 5 teams right now, who has played a strong schedule?
OSUs "cupcake games" are Navy, New Mexico (which are horrible, but atleast FBS), toledo, and USC.
For Florida: FIU, troy and Charleston Southern... are you kidding?
Bama: VT, FIU, North Texas and Chattanooga - You must be kidding me - chattanooga what, community college. Some #2 school. I wonder if they will win those...
Texas: La-Monroe, UTEP, Wyoming, UCF... tough...
VT: Bama, Marshall, Nebraska and E. Carolina. (They have some of my respect over the preceding top 3.
BSU: Thanks for playing, but thats just hilarious, The only good team on your schedule is Oregon.
I cant wait until they get rid of about 40 teams from the FBS, and make it more of a NFL style conference system. This is stupid when schools play div 3 schools for the sake of "giving them a shot at the big stage." REALLY Urban Meyer, you didnt like being on the "Big stage" when you got stomped by OSU in 2002 did you, this being why you decided to go to Utah, and do well, and then take it further to Florida.
Point is, there is a strong need to remove these crappy conferences, and when they win their conference title, they can play in the big leagues playoff. Enough times their, the conferences will vote to invite them in and remove a weak team. Easy as that.
OOC Strength of schedule
