5 Reasons 2002 Ohio State Wasn't The Worst National Title Squad Of The Last 20 Years


In case you missed it, ESPN did a ranking of the national title winning teams since the BCS era. The 2002 Ohio State team was ranked dead last at No. 21. Here’s five reasons why the media titan is off its rocker.

5 Reasons 2002 Ohio State Wasn’t The Worst National Title Squad Of The Last 20 Years.

Buckeye Nation is up in arms. That’s because ESPN wrote a piece ranking the national title winning teams from the BCS era on. That’s 21 teams if you’re counting.

First of all, despite whatever crazy formula ESPN concocted, it’s still a very subjective list that someone has to finish last on. Well, that team was none other than your Ohio State Buckeyes.

Here’s the deal though; the national title trophy is still sitting at the Woody Hayes Athletic Complex, so neener, neener.

Regardless, there appears so be something flawed with ESPN’s formulas as common sense would seem to indicate otherwise. There are many things blatantly wrong with the list — including Vince Young’s Texas team being No. 1 — but that’s for another day.

No way, no how.

Anyway, we’re here to dispel the notion that OSU was lucky to get a national title, because that’s certainly what if feels like from some guy sitting at a computer still pining for the BCS formulas to come back in vogue.

Here are five reasons the 2002 Ohio State national title team was clearly NOT the least of all the national title winning teams over the last two decades.
