Not sure I am that offended about what Chris Fowler said.......let's not forget all the blogging and posting we have all done throughout the year after various games cussing and yelling about this team and the defense etc etc.
Mark May is the biggest douche bag EVER.......I respect Chris Folwer. And folks....even Urban said that we could play with anyone in the country but he also said that he would not have said that several weeks ago.
The playoff system cannot get here soon enough and it will be much better when they expand it to 8 teams. Then no one will be able to complain....well, maybe not.
And back to mark may....he enjoys getting a rise out of Buckeyenation!! Let's do all of our selves a favor and completey ignore the mother f'er. All of the emails and tweets and crap we send directly to him just gives him ammunition to justify his existence.
There will be no 14-0 Champion in 2012 season. Fact.
Being a b10 team, 14 wins is required, don't be purposely obtuse.

When factually proven wrong, insult. Got it.
I was obviously talking about Ohio state, when I was referring to 12-0 being incomplete.
So You didn't factually prove anything wrong. You are just using semantics to stick your head in the sand, and being purposely obtuse for the sake of being argumentative.
What does 12-0 get you in the B10? It can't get you a conf championship, and it can't get you a BCS title, so how does that "say it all" it says "ineligible for post season play", that's what it says.
Given the severe lack of common opponents and h2h matchups among the top CFB teams in a given year, no marquee OOC opponant on the schedule and no post season play just really doesn't "just say it all" IMO.
Keep bouncing around...
It was obvious that this discussion has NOTHING to do with the BCS, only an AP discussion and Fowler's comments.
Nothing bouncing around here, its just things I thought were pretty obvious from my original comment to you.
That along with my original comment are all in line with each other.
If you think this 12 wins says it all with regards to being national championship caliber, BCS or otherwise, then so be it, but it doesn't change the fact that this is an incomplete season, fair or unfair, I don't see how we should benifit from not having to face one top flight opponant all season. And I think Fowler was completely within range to say this team, who isn't great at on either side of the ball or special teams, doesn't have the look of a championship team.
Had we gone the through the B10 championship game and beaten ND or Bama, I think the "undefeated says it all" argument has a lot more to it.
But we didn't and it doesn't.
