They never stopped coming. Last year, we finally yielded.
The Ohio State Buckeyes ruled the Big Ten for a decade under the direction of Jim Tressel. Three national championship games, with one win. A 106-22 overall record (NCAA sanctions be damned). 9-1 against That Team Up North, the only other true power in the conference.
Then it ended.
Within six months of the team’s last BCS win under Jim Tressel, the program had collapsed. The leader that built the Buckeye juggernaut was exiled and one of his greenest deputies took his place in an ultimately failed effort to maintain the program’s standard of excellence. In 2011, three teams fought to fill the hole Ohio State left vacant. Michigan State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Michigan enjoyed some of their best seasons in years, a success that was amplified by the Buckeyes’ absence. Two of the three beat Ohio State. The Spartans and Badgers battled for the conference title at the inaugural championship game.

Last weekend the MAC shocked the world and won 4 out-of-conference games against ever so powerful BCS conference opponents. It was one of those great weekends that the MAC somehow pulls every decade or so. For those browbeaten BCS schools, what was supposed to be a series of routine gridiron prostate exams, turned out to [...]

The days when Ohio State regularly entertained a Mid-American Conference school may be coming to an end because of the new FBS playoff system.
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said the four-team FBS playoff may mean fewer games against MAC teams.
''We're changing our philosophy because we're obviously going to move into a playoff structure that I don'...
After four straight wins, the Buckeyes are starting to pull everything together and are beginning to look like a cohesive group. Several members of the offense have stepped up and become household names, one of which is wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown. Year after year, this young man wins awards for his outstanding play and as a junior, is looking to have his best season...
Ohio State may have fewer MAC schools to kick around on future schedules. The coming switchover from the BCS to a playoff system is the main cuprit for the Buckeyes wanting to wean itself off of schools from the non-BCS conference.

into a playoff structure that I don't think all of us...
With the Buckeyes coming to East Lansing this Saturday, it is time to take a look into what Ohio State brings to the table this year under new coach Urban Meyer.

Gameday hits East Lansing for Michigan State-Ohio State, which is one of only two matchups of ranked teams today (the other being WVU-Baylor). Given Lee Corso's recent form, he may don the Sparty outfit and lead a group of co-eds to Thermopylae to battle the Persians. Hey, a guy can dream, right? Make sure you leave us your Pammies quotes either in the PWC comments...
