When I was writing this week's Bottom 5, I noticed something. Besides the fact that the Ohio Bobcats are ranked 23 nationally, is that a lot of their opponents haven't been very good.The Bobcats got lots of national pub when they whipped everyone's new favorite whipping boy Penn State in their first game. Since then, it's been cupcake city, and the poll voters are totally buying it. Here's a look at Ohio's opponents to date: WINS LOSSES Penn State 5 2 New Mexico St 1 6 Marshall 3 4 Norfolk State * 2 6 Umass 0 7 Buffalo 1 6 Akron 1 7 Combined Record 13 38 So, let's take a gander. Norfolk State is a FCS team, and a bad one at that. Then there's the conference slate. Yes, I know you have to play teams in your conference, even the bad ones, but Ohio's schedule this year couldn't have been laid out any easier. UMass, Akron, and Buffalo are among the countries worst teams, not just the MAC.They finish the season a little tougher than they started. Bowling Green, Kent State, and Miami (OH) all have winning records. Of course, they still have Bottom 5 participant Eastern Michigan to play as well. The Kent State game at the end of the season should be one, and will more than likely determine the winner of the East division.
