<strong>OK kid , now for some real analysis. Ohio State has given up fewer points in 13 games than Miami has in 12. Miami's defense is not in the same league as Ohio States. Ohio States two safeties Doss and Nickey are two of the biggest hitters in collegege ball and Matt "the kaiser" Wilhelm in the middle is also an all-american along with Doss. Ohio State has defeated 3 teams ranked in the top 15 by a higher points per game winning margin than the points per game Miami defeated the number 14 and 15 teams by. Miami's offensive superiority was built entirely at the expense of unranked teams. One of the ranked teams Miami beat, West Virginia was beaten by Wisconsin, who went 2 and 6 in the big 10, and also lost two Virginia, so final rankings, Miami has beaten 1 top 15 team. Ohio State is currently the top ranked defense in the country, after the former leader Kansas State gave up 27 points against Arizona. Miami is only #1 in the polls. Statisicly they aren't number one in any thing, except for maybe the most number of mouthy fans. Craig Krenzel has a higher completion percentage than Ken Dorsey and his yards per completion is almost identical. If it come down to a pasing game, Ohio State will win. There is absolutely nothing except for the loud trumpets of the national media that says Miami is going to win this game. Ohio State still has to win on the field, but I'm not expecting it to be close. Ohio State 25, Miami 13, you heard it here first.</strong><hr></blockquote>
hahaha, oh man, I can't wait till the game's over
What a lot of you fail to realize is that in at least 7 of thier games, the first teamers didn't play past the second half because the game was over. So Dorsey didn't play much in the second half (thus his numbers not inflated) and 2nd and 3rd team defensive players palyed. Also, as i stated earlier, Miami coaches went on record saying their style of defense can give up some yards on the ground, but won't give up many big plays or points. Sure a few backs had some yards, but very few of those yards resulted in scores. And, none of those backs were on the winning side. Check the stats, the teams that had any kind of success running the ball virtually had no yards in the air. That' s Miami's defense and it works.
Well, you can include the probation years if you'd like, but when a school only has 30 something scholarships, it's not fair to count those years. As for the cheating, I'm not sure I agree. What happened was Luther Campell (local rapper/producer) would award maimi players $100 per big play. What's the big deal? These schools make millions of dollars a year of these kids who can ruin the rest of their lives with injury and aren't allowed to have a job or any kind of income. Those of you without family money know how tight college is with a job, imagine no job. So you have your opinion and I have mine, bottom line is that's all past tense now and Miami is #1 and the dynasty is back.
