Texas could have easily lost to OSU. They won that game because OSU coudln't quite figure out how to win it despite being a better team and outplaying Texas. But they didn't lose..they caught the breaks.
Lets see you also asked me why I thought OSU could beat Texas, Penn State and USC. Well first let me say if those 3 games were to take place again they could be very good games. Overall however I think OSU is a better team. If both teams play well OSU wins. OSU lost to 2 of those 3 on a combination of playing poorly and being unlucky.
You also said because Georgia only beat Arkansas by a field goal they can't beat USC. Well using similar opponents is always a flawless way to determine who is a superior team.
Here we go:
Michigan State beat Notre Dame by 6.
USC beat Notre Dame by 3.
Clearly Michigan State is better than USC.
It's not that I don't see your point about the point spread. I just really hate when people say that to compare teams. If USC and Georgia (with DJ) played it would be a good game and I think Georgia would have a good shot at winning.
OSU's defense would keep the games close IMO. But our offense, when facing a true test, would not hold up.
It's gonna be interesting this weekend versus Northwestern. I think we'll win, because looking at NW schedule - ain't much there. But I want to see how their QB and RB (who was Mr Ohio) does against our "D".
