Ohio State WR Evan Spencer on Alabama and FSU: “I think we’d wipe the floor with both of them.” — Ryan Ginn (@RyanGinnBSB) November 11, 2013   It turns out that Spencer’s comment was actually, “I’m a little biased, but I think we’d wipe the field with both of them.” Of course this isn’t how a large portion of the media is reporting it. They are presenting it as “bulletin board material”. If you look at things objectively by the end of the season Ohio State’s schedule will be right on par with Florida State’s. Florida State will have beaten a good Clemson team followed by a lot of mediocre teams. Ohio State will have beaten a good Wisconsin team and (likely) a good Michigan State team along with a crew of scrubs, like Michigan. If the NCAA was consistent then Alabama wouldn’t even be bowl eligible considering there has been proven instances of a coach giving money to a current player and a recent graduate receiving money from a guy connected to an agent while on the path to last years National Championship. As things stand Ohio State is currently the odd team out behind Alabama and Florida State when it comes to who will be playing for the National Championship. We like the Buckeyes confidence and agree with Spencer that Ohio State could take care of either one of these teams. Comments like this just get us all fired up! As for the bulletin board material we aren’t buying it. If guys need comments from the other team in order to get fired up for the National Championship Game then they shouldn’t be in the game. We’re on board with Bone Crusher, WE AIN”T NEVER SCARED. What do you think. Should Spencer have laid that out there or kept in the locker room?
