Evan Spencer, the Ohio State wide receiver, was apprised of the situation where Alabama is #1 in the latest BCS poll, with Florida State #2. The undefeated Buckeyes are a distant third.
Spencer admitted his bias and then said “I think we’d wipe the field with both of them.” Of course he said that. What else is he supposed to say?
Of course, Alabama is the defending back-to-back national champion, and Florida State actually plays bona fide competition, even in the ACC. Road domination of Clemson and a demolition job on Miami showed they can compete. Ohio State, well, let’s just say the Big Ten hasn’t been much of a football conference over the past few years. One reason: Speed. The Big Ten simply isn’t that fast, certainly not like the SEC, Pac-12 or even ACC. Baylor, a Big 12 team, might run Ohio State out of the stadium. Not sure what they can do to correct it, either. They’ll have to resort to heavily recruiting the Southeastern United States.
