2) Football comes down to line play....it's all about the fat, sweaty guys in the trenches. I'm thinkin' FL's defensive line will get more wins than OSU's defensive line.
3) OSU has had the last 16 weeks off...or something like that. All the OSU Offensive Linemen that tanked up on turkey on Thanksgiving haven't even run it off yet. And they'll eat right into Christmas. By the time Jan 8 rolls around, they won't be able to do more than jog onto the field for introductions. They'll be pukin' by the 4th quarter.
I got to say it almost seems like you saw the game before the rest of the world. OSU crappy line play was key to them gettin spanked in this game. and FL definitely looked to have a speed advantage all over the field.
