    Takes a lot of guts(and money) for Saban to be there today.
    Boo birds raining down on old Saint Nick......SEC coach....ex MSU coach

    I dunno. Nick Saban has a strong personality, that's the way I'd put it. Probably said, "show me the money" and that was that.

    This is Ohio States first game against a top 10 team since Urban Meyer got there. What a joke.

    Agree. That conference is a complete dud. Hell, the ACC is a stronger football conference now.

    I'm not sure MSU has the offensive fire power to beat OSU, but I'd sure love to see it. With an OSU loss an SEC teams gets in the BCS game....not sure if Auburn or Mizzou can beat FSU though.

    "That conference is a complete dud. Hell, the ACC is a stronger football conference now. "

    Just to put some numbers on it, here are the 5 BCS computers that also do rankings on conferences as a whole (Sagarin appears to do divisional splits only now in his rankings, rather than whole conference):

    Anderson & Hester

    SEC #1
    Pac 12 #2
    Big 10 #3
    ACC #4
    Big 12 #5

    http://andersonsports.com/football/ACF_frnk.html

    Colley

    SEC #1
    Pac 12 #2
    Big 10 #3
    ACC #4
    Big 12 #5

    http://colleyrankings.com/foot2013/rankings/conf14.html

    Billingsley

    SEC #1
    Big 12 #2
    Pac 12 #3
    Big 10 #4
    ACC #5

    http://www.cfrc.com/Ratings_2013/CC_14.htm

    Massey

    Pac 12 #1
    SEC #2
    Big 10 #3
    ACC #4
    Big 12 #5

    http://www.masseyratings.com/rate.php?s=cf2013&sub=11604&mid=6&c=1

    Wolfe

    SEC #1
    Pac 12 #2
    Big 10 #3
    Big 12 #4
    ACC #5

    http://prwolfe.bol.ucla.edu/cfootball/ratings.htm#Conference


    So it would appear that none of computer ranking services have the ACC as stronger than the Big 10, and all but one have the Big 10 ranked as the #3 conference in strength.

    Herbstreit and Pollack both picked Ohio State.

    Corso wore the Brutus Buckeye head.

    OSU helmet stickers are perfect for an Urban Meyer coached team....

    If Urban loses this one, how soon until the "health concerns" reemerge? Or do they only manifest against Saban?
