Actually they would have been there but I think you would have had different matchups.

In 2006
1 Seed: Ohio State (were #1 all season long)
2 Seed: Florida
3 Seed: USC
4 Seed: Michigan (OSU beat them by 3 pts that season in game of the century 1 vs 2 matchup).

Who's to say that Florida team beats that USC team which was really good but lost to 42 pt underdog Stanford in the regular season.

In 2007
1 Seed: Ohio State (were #1 at the end of regular season)
2 Seed: LSU
3 Seed: Oklahoma (won the Big 12 championship in a blow out over #1 Mizzou)
4 Seed: West Virginia

In 06, who's to say OSU or Florida get by that 1st round game
In 07, who's to say OSU or LSU get by that 1st round game

The problem with the two losses to LSU and Florida was the fact Tressel was a poor coach. Never liked his way of coaching from the start.

Mistakes, conservative playing, not making changes as the game goes along.

Stop with the whining about those two games. Ohio St won more game in the BCS Bowl games then all those teams mentioned period.

They just wiped the slate clean by demolishing three very good teams in a row with a 3rd string QB and 6 players who were to start at the beginning of the year not playing.

I can say this team should be considered among the best ever for what they did and how they did it.

Now they get a great recruiting year of more stars coming in and I can see the Buckeyes winning multiple championships in the next several years.

I said it all along urban Meyer is bringing the sec to Ohio state. And with that they will win championships.

LOL at the talking heads as none of them picked Ohio State after the four playoff teams were announced. Most of them thought Alabama was going to beat them convincingly and the majority of them picked Oregon in the Championship Game. Gotta love it. Congrads to Ohio State!!!

As long as Urban is there they are poised to do great things. It would be great if he could beat the SEC again.

My Sooners got some love (clearly way over hyped) for spankin' Bammer in the Sugar Bowl a few years back. Hopefully ya'll will have a better follow-up campaign to your big wins. OU had a horrible year last year; it's not looking rosy this year either.

I always kinda laugh when I see or hear people say that coach so and so is bringing the SEC to the north, west, east, etc...

Ohio State's roster this season still included 43 kids from Ohio and an additional 18 from Illinois, NJ, NY, Minn, Michigan, Indiana and PA. OSU had 17 kids on it's roster from SEC states.

Alabama had 38 home grown boys on it's team. With an additional 38 kids from rival SEC states like LA, GA, TN and Fla.

Florida state had 72 kids from the state of Florida. 11 kids from states like GA, TX, Alabama

Oregon is far worse when using home grown talent with only 20 Oregon kids on the roster. 33 kids from CA.

Pinkle, Saban, Miles and Meyer all have Midwest coaching roots. Who is to say they aren't bringing what they learned while at OSU, kent State, Toledo or michigan with them down south?

Bringing the Sec as in Sec style as in big physical linemen. Physical and aggressive defense. Lots of power run play has been a sec staple not where someone is from. Its the style not where players are from. Meyer bought the sec to Ohio state. Even he said he was bringing sec style football when he first got hired
