The “G” in Ohio
State’s president Gordon Gee stands for Goofball
After five previous failed
marriages with West Virginia, Colorado, Ohio State, Brown and Vanderbilt, Ohio State’s president Gordon Gee (biography-see
below) insulted bow-tie wearers and wire-rimmed eye-glass wearers and the Little Sisters of the Poor (mission statement-see
below) by claiming that Ohio State football doesn’t play a weak football schedule.
Is that so?
According to the highly respected
Sagarin “Strength of Schedule” ratings, Ohio State’s schedule is ranked in the bottom 50% of all division
1-a football schools at #64.
twelve games Ohio State played, eight of them were played at Ohio State including all four of its non-conference opponents.
(Miami-FL schedule ranked #31, Marshall #90, Eastern Michigan #93, and Ohio University #138.)
In fact, the highest schedule
ranked team Ohio State played was 3-win, 9-loss Minnesota.
In the 11 team Big Ten conference,
Ohio State only played 8 of its 10 conference rivals.
The corruption and lack of
morality and ethics is in div 1-a college football is so pervasive that Ohio State played 8 home games last year and this
year and will play 7 home games next year.
Ohio State isn’t the
only one either. Most, if not all, of the schools in the big six automatic qualifying bcs conferences play
at least 7 home games.
What does this tell us?
The lack of integrity of
the leadership in college football in projecting fair play and even playing fields is no different than placing a bet at the
craps table at a casino in Las Vegas. The house is always favored.
If a guy as Goofy as Gordon
Gee can receive all the awards he has received, what does that tell you about the quality of the organizations that are giving
him those awards?
By the way, the Pac Ten conference
plays 9 of 12 toughest schedules in the country, including the top 8.
Also, let us give an “atta
boy” to second year football program (no division and no conference yet) South Alabama ranked in the bcs at #102 and
in the Sagarin at #188 ahead of 56 other teams.
