> You're going way too nuts with that conspiracy theory. Last year, there were only one undefeated
team, 3 1 loss teams, then a bunch of 2+ loss teams. Ohio State was one of the 1-loss teams and had
a win over Oklahoma, the Big 12 champ. Penn State had 2 losses, one was to Pitt and the other was
by 39 points to Michigan. Yes, Penn State won the Big Ten East on a tiebreaker but Ohio State had
the better overall record.
They won the Big 10 Championship and defeated Ohio State to get there.
If this situation is about getting it decided on the field, then it, to all heretofore criteria, had
been decided: Penn State > Ohio State last year.
That the Committee nullified the Big 10 championship AND the head to head situation for the first
apparent time in history had a reason: Sandusky and Paterno.
It looked, until two weeks ago, ESPN was ready to rectify that situation.
