If Ohio State doesn't get to a BCS Bowl game it won't be because of Boeckman. It'll be because Michigan and Wisconsin are just better on paper this year. The non-conference schedule is a joke too, so no favors there. Heck, losing to Texas two years ago was better for the BCS chances than breezing through this year's games. Can't wait for the near decade of top level teams to start next year. USC, Miami, VT, Oklahoma...gonna be fun.
Realistically, there's only three games that can be lost, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Penn State. Any other game would be an unpredictable upset, and won't be because of one single issue other than mostly luck.
This team is world's ahead of where the Alamo Bowl team was three years ago. I think 3 losses is the max, with two being most likely. Should be right there for a BCS spot again. Although, one loss may be the max for this team to make a BCS game. With that OOC schedule, anything short of a co-Big Ten title will need lots of help.
