It doesn't really matter what you believe, the facts speak otherwise. So do lame threads with titles like this. Guys like you diminish what OSU and other teams have accomplished this year because you are focused more on some negatives of other teams.

The streak is over, FSU did that last year - but the SEC isn't finished.

Sorry.

I think this season for the SEC is similar to USA Basketball in 2004 and 2006 when we lost to Argentina, Puerto Rico and then Greece.

Embarrassing for us is 7-5 in Bowl games. Ok whatever.

The "embarassing" was in reference to Team USA losing to Greece. At that time, everyone was saying USA basketball superiority was over.

The question is whether they would've been as dominant had the playoff system been in place the last 10 years. There's plenty of doubt now that they would've been.

Right. Plenty of doubt based on what exactly?

The SEC wasn't playing itself; other teams from other conferences had the chance to beat the SEC, and ended up losing, usually by two touchdowns or more.

Plenty of doubt with who? Jealous fans. Its over and done and in the history books forever. Why does your "doubt" start and end with the SEC? Do you question the victories of other BCS teams not from the SEC? Why not?

Wait...I know.

Oh yeah, never.
