“We have 45 men suited up. They're all supposed to be ready to play.”
I wonder if Ohio St. would even be undefeated if they weren't playing with no pressure all season.
too bad...highest scoring team in nation could have played a Louisiana rival (ULM/LT) and instead stay home with 9 wins because of a stupid and greedy AD that still didn't take responsibility for the decision using "we" and blaming the conference...
"What hurt us is that we're in a conference that's disintegrating," Van De Velde said. "It only has one bowl tie-in. We weren't the champions, Utah State was, and they got that tie-in. Next year, we won't have that issue, because we're going into Conference USA and they have five bowl tie-ins. It's just an unfortunate situation that in this particular year, we got caught," Van De Velde said.
All this "nonsense" is still far better than when the bowls extended invitations during the season.
