Shorter Verbatim OSU president Gordon Gee: “it’s like murderer’s row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.”

Among the powerhouses played by OSU this year (Sagarin ranking):

  • Marshall (109)
  • Eastern Michigan (167, better than North Dakota but below such perennial powers as Central Connecticut and Maine.)
  • Ohio (75)
  • Purdue (86)
  • Indiana (105)
  • Minnesota (104)

Reasonable people can disagree about whether Boise State merits a BCS bid if it runs the table.   But for the president of a school in an overrated, past-its-prime conference that rarely schedules decent out-of-conference opposition to complain about his impossible competition, give me a break.    I, for one, have seen more than enough of Ohio State in national championship games; I’m sure Boisie can do at least as good a job at getting its ass kicked all over the field as the Buckeyes.
