Buckeyed!

Posted: September 14, 2008 in college football, Ohio State, SoCal
As the college football world expected, SoCal rolled OSU, 35-3. 

Stank-0 walked into a house party towards the end of the 3rd Q, and it was 21-3. 

Stank-0 called this one in a prior blog post.

There was even a segment where an analyst broke down game film from SC’s game against UVA to make the case for OSU making this competitive past halftime. Whatever, mayne!

Stank-0 was of the opinion that Beanie Wells would make this game more competitive, but Beanie would not have made up a 32 point deficit, by himself.

The highlights (lowlights if you are a Buckeyes fan) of the *cough* game of the year *cough*.

Stank-0 is quite certain you have all heard about the Ohio State playin SoCal in SoCal. What more can Stank-0 add to this? ESPN has been trippin all over themselves hypin this game up, despite the fact that the Ohio State squeaked by a weaker team last week. There was even a segment where an analyst broke down game film from SC’s game against UVA to make the case for OSU making this competitive past halftime. Whatever, mayne!

Stank-0 will call this one for the Trojans of SC. So, how exactly will the Ohio State make it into the national championship game? They don’t. They have had chance after chance after chance to win another title on a bad pass interference call and they have blown their chances. They keep gettin to the chip b/c the Big 10 11 is cream puff.

The bad pass interference call in question from the 2003 National Championship game between the Ohio State and Miami. Maybe that’s why OSU can’t win in the title game because their last title was gift wrapped.

For reasons known only to God, SoCal is now #1 in the AP poll while Georgia drops to #2. The reason is because SoCal played a BCS conference opponent.

Now Stank-0 is all for teams not having a steady diet of cupcakes, but uh…Georgia didn’t lose and they won pretty impressively at that.

Stank-0 thinks the computers need some more tweakin if they are blowin it this early in the season.

“There’s a bit of a growing backlash for the amount of teams that open with I-AA cupcakes,” said Mandel, whose book “Bowls, Polls and Tattered Souls” chronicles college football’s controversies. “To see a team [USC] go on the road and play a New Year’s Day bowl team from last season, and not only play them but destroy them, how could you not reward that team?”

USC also jumped past Georgia to No. 1 in the USA Today coaches’ poll, which has the same top five as the AP poll.


Fundamentally, Stank-0 is in total agreement, but in reality Virginia is an upper echelon cupcake. The clip below will bear this out.
