OSU teams in 1995, 1996, 1998 and 2005 that didn't get a shot were easily better than that 2007 team (NFL draft proves that).
Except for an inexplicable WVU loss at home vs. Pitt, OSU would have played WVU for the championship in 2007 instead of a road game in the SuperDome vs. LSU.
#1 FSU vs. #4 Bama
#2 OSU vs. #3 Auburn/Missouri
Would be a fun semifinal this season.
Not to nitpick/diminish a fine post, but the Ohio State QB in '07 was Todd Boeckman. who was, indeed, a statue.
