I see we can expect the Urbman to display the same level of class at OSU as he did at UF.
I stopped paying attention near the end, but I think that might have been in lieu of an easy FG. You can't just go into the victory formation with 10 minutes left on the clock because you feel bad for the opponent. THat would be worse. Also - we went down in polls after week 1 because we didn't win by as big a margin as Oregon, so.... anybody that says margin of victory is no longer a consideration has underestimated the human factor in the rankings.

This was a late add - we had Vandy scheduled, but they backed out - can't remember why. Possibly so that everyone can still say tOSU has never beaten an SEC team (since the win over Arkansas was revoked). Ironically, they actually chose FAMU for the band, which is suspended over a hazing issue and couldn't make the trip. Also, with late notice, there are not too many schools to choose from.

It was pretty bad, but Guiton's record, in addition to the fact that this is biggest margin of victory since the 60s were interesting for Buckeye fans.
