Re voting for Florida over OSU. I won't take anything away from Florida. They had a great season and dominated in some key games. That said, if Florida had a great season, then OSU had a supercalifragilisticexpialidoc ious season. As has been mentioned, they were the only undefeated team. They've got a quarterback that has to be a shoo-in for the Heisman. (the way that he'd get himself out of very troublesome situations not just by not being sacked, but by throwing a touchdown pass time and time again was simply amazing). They were rated #1 before the season started, and maintained that ranking for a full season. The covered the spread in every single game they played all season long. (did they cover against Michigan? I THINK they did, but that may have been the only one they didn't.) With a head coach that does NOT believe in running up the score, they won many games by LARGE margins. Their offense was basically in a position of having to say "Well we're at the end of the field. If you won't stop us, I guess we have to score again". They lost all their starting linebackers last year, and with a new crew this year, they did not miss a beat.
Don't get me wrong. I believe that Florida is a darn good team, and will give OSU a good game on Jan 8. I think that Michigan would have given them a good game too. But I acknowledge all of that without discounting the sheer dominance of the Buckeyes as the rightful owner of the #1 votes.
