Florida State over Ohio State. I thought they "deadened" the aluminum bats. Guess not.

They need to switch to wooden bats yesterday...

This was debated on the ESPN shows, but better win, FSU 37 to 6 or Texas in 26 innings? As I am Bias I will not cast my vote.

Another ridiculous defeat by Ohio St in a big game. What a shocker...but 37 runs, c'mon that's a new low.

I believe that I read somewhere that the NCAA is being a lot more strict on the number of days that any college team can practice and practice outdoors in an effort to try to take away some of the advantage that the southern schools have. Again, I am not sure what they limited it to or anything of that nature. However, regardless, to think that a lot of the northern schools don't get consistenly warm weather for most of the season (and some are going through a cold front now) it's easy to see that there is an advantage! That's pretty undeniable and it will always be so.

And more impressive win - Florida State. I mean, even with Ohio State being a northern school, they're still the Big 10 Champions. I thought that counts for something. I guess not.
