Life's good for Buckeye fans these days.

Nowadays it seems fans of the Ohio State Buckeyes are so spoiled.  They have been treated to a football team that has won at least a share of six straight Big Ten titles, and seven consecutive victories over its rival from up north(although lately its not really been a rivalry, if ya know what I mean).  The men's basketball team is currently undefeated and ranked number one in the nation, only one season removed from a Big Ten Championship and sweet sixteen berth.  Many people are starting to believe the Bucks are odds on favorite to win the whole thing in basketball.  Buckeye basketball dominance may not be limited to this season, as Ohio State boasts a recruiting class that has four players ranked among the top 50 prospects in the nation.  Oh, and not to be outdone, the football team has just won its second consecutive BCS game, and finished the season 12-1, its best record since the 2002 season(where they went 14-0 and won the national championship).  To think that there are people out there who believe Terrelle Pryor has not lived up to the hype.  Well that may be true, but since he has come to Ohio State Buckeyes have finished 10-3, 11-2, and now 12-1, with BCS games in each season, victories in the last two(Rose and Sugar Bowls).  And even with inkgate limiting Pryor to only 7 regular season games next fall, he has a chance to become the winningest quarterback in OSU history.

So if you are a Buckeye fan, life is indeed good today.  If you're not, well I am sorry for your loss.  And if you happen to be a Michigan fan, well, I am not really sorry for your losses.  Cause they're going to continue to mount, especially in the next few years to the Buckeyes.  Chant Brady Hoke all you want, hell chant Bob Hope for all that matters it's not really gonna make a difference in the near future, lol.  I think its funny how whenever I run into Michigan fans nowadays they are always thumping their chests saying 'we've got the winningest football program in college football history.'  Yeah, what have you won in the last ten years? Maybe a couple of Big Ten titles?  Since 2000, Ohio State has won at least a share of seven Big Ten Titles and five BCS bowl games (including a national championship in the Fiesta Bowl in 2003).  I don't know if Michigan has ever won a BCS Bowl game, and they haven't won a bowl game at all since Lloyd Carr left.

But I digress.  Enjoy it while you can, Ohio State fans, cause it won't last forever.  Soak it up.  And when someone disses your team, remind them what is what.  Certainly don't let SEC fans get under your craw, remind them about OSU's five BCS wins.  Maybe you could throw in the fact that Ohio State has produced more first round NFL draft picks than any school in their beloved conference as well.  But mostly, point to the fact that in the past three meetings between Ohio State and schools from the Southeastern Conference, the team in Scarlet and Gray has come out on top each time (OSU beat Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl this year, and the men's basketball team beat both Florida and South Carolina.)
