    If there can be an Akron Zips discussion, considering they are Cleveland Indians level bad, than there sure as hell can be an Ohio Bobcats thread.

    Ohio 24, Penn State 14
    Ohio 51, New Mexico State 24

    Ohio 27, Marshall 24
    Ohio 44, Norfolk State 10

    Ohio 37, Massachusetts 34

    Ohio vs. Buffalo
    Ohio vs. Akron
    Ohio @ Miami
    Ohio vs. Eastern Michigan
    Ohio vs. Bowling Green
    Ohio @ Ball State
    Ohio @ Kent State




    Check back to the OP for official results. So, fellow Bobcats, do we have a chance at undefeated this year, because, quite frankly, I think we do. Dangerous games vs. Buffalo, vs. Bowling Green, and at Miami, but I think we could pull them out. If the Bobcats go 12-0, is that BCS worthy, considering Penn State is really the only notable win?

    I'm no Bobcat, but I root for OU. I don't see you guys going undefeated. But if you do, you'll probably make the BCS.

    Which is more likely: OU goes undefeated or PSU goes defeated?

    I'm rooting for you Bobkittens.

    Unless things have really changed since I graduated, BG should be a breeze for you. We were really, really bad. Granted I haven't kept up with them much since I graduated, I did watch us almost upset Florida.

    If Ohio doesn't run the table, it will be on the biggest colossal failures in the history of the MAC conference and Ohio football. They will never get a chance like this ever again, they have to capitalize on it. I am def rooting for them as well. I hope they do it, I love seeing the MAC conference do well.

    @Miami should be the only tough game left. Miami's QB is no joke.

    That said, even if we do go undefeated, there's a zero percent chance we'll play in a BCS game.

    I don't know how good Marshall is this year but they will be fired up after the beating they took at Peden last year.

    That's nice in theory, but that schedule is an absolute joke. Frankly it would be embarrassing if they didn't run the table. No, it shouldn't earn them a BCS game.

    Boise State had a joke schedule every year, and they were in many a Fiesta Bowl.

    They also either played solid AQ teams (Oregon State, Oregon, VT, Georgia) and won... and then they blew out all their lesser competition. I mean blow outs.

    Beating the bottom feeder of the B1G by 10 is not going to sway a lot of voters. So unless you put on some serious routs... it probably isn't going to happen. Don't forget... you have to be ranked 12th or better to get into the BCS. If you just win all your games with that schedule... you'll end up in the 10-15 range most likely. And even then the voters may push you to the 13th spot just to avoid having you in a BCS game.

    I'm not saying this to bash OU. Is it fair? Not really. But that's just the way of things.

    The other thing you have to remember is that they are only forced to take 1 Non-AQ team in the BCS. Currently Boise has more votes than you. I'd even argue that their 13-10 loss against Michigan State is going to be viewed better than the OU Penn State win at the end of the season.

    Not to mention Boise plays BYU, which is a tougher opponent by far than anything on OU's schedule. If Boise runs the table from here on out... OU will be left out in the cold.

    Should go undefeated with that joke of a schedule, and there is no way OU makes a BCS Bowl.

    Let's not turn this into a bash OU thread.

    OU has a solid team. They would be extremely competitive against a majority of AQ teams. And that is quite an accomplishment considering the "talent" disparity between AQ teams and mid-majors. Unfortunately the schedule didn't pan out for them to showcase their talent to the fullest.

    And that isn't OU's fault. Not many high profile programs want to play against teams like OU or UC. It's a lose-lose for them. High profile programs want to schedule shlubs they know they can beat instead of lesser opponents that will put up a solid fight.

    Regardless of schedule... being undefeated is a tremendous accomplishment. And every OU alumn should be proud whether that results in a BCS game or not.

    I didn't see anyone bash OU. There's no denying they have a solid team this year, unfortunately for them their schedule is incredibly weak.

    Was not meaning to bash OU in any way. Schedules are made years in advance, and sorry, but no high profile programs are running from them. PSU was a high profile program when this game was scheduled. OU has a solid team, and solid MAC program. They are nowhere near the level yearly as UC year in and year out, though.

    To be honest UC has only been consistent for the last decade... probably last half decade at a high level.

    While the Big East isn't a powerhouse by any means... we do have teams that are competitive every year. UC has been trying to expand it's OOC schedule recently. This year was very exciting for us. We had VT and OSU as OOC partners.

    Unfortunately for us, TCU joining the Big East forced us to drop OSU to pick up TCU. That's how UCF ended up on OSU's schedule, as they were playing TCU that year. Unfortunately TCU went to the Big 12 and we were forced to pick up another FCS team.

    OOC partners are hard to come by (at least for UC). The program thinks we are good enough for a home/away series... however a lot of other higher profile teams only want to play a home date and not play away at UC. Which is understandable with revenue and all.

    Oh well. Hopefully ND moving to the ACC will trigger the last wave of realignment. I just hope UC ends up in the Big 12 as good road partners for WVU and Louisville. It's a long shot... but I think we've come to far to move back down to CUSA.
