I'm putting my money on Florida. I think OSU is overrated. Don't get me wrong, I think they are the best team in the country but I think the amount that they are the best by is overrated.

Florida is a very good team and should definately cover the spread that I expect to be 4-6 points.

They are favored by 8. Just for fun Vegas released Michigan vs Florida, and Michigan was favored by 6 in that game.

Wynn is marginal at best, but Uf runs the ball so many other ways and with so many other guys, their run game will be solid against OSU.

I'm thinking Florida wins this one, in a very close battle. The winner will not have more than 7 points over the loser.

The X-Factor in this game will not be Leak, Smith, Ginn, or Tebow; It will be Percy Harvin. Mark my words. The Freshman will have himself a monster game.

Malcolm Jenkins is going to cause nightmares for error prone Chris Leak for the rest of his life.

Just for fun Michigan got #30 in National Track & Field Championship and Florida got 37th.

Wisconsin also had the best team in the men's 100m.

Unfortunately, you don't understand what a fast defense is. Not only are they fast off the ball, they absolutely maul defenders by getting to the ball in a hurry. That's one of the reasons the defense is so good. We have two tackling machines, and a bunch of gap shooting lineman that will cause havock in the backfield all day.

Everett and Siler work so well together it's tough to match. They communicate excellently, as does the whole defense.

Yeah, tOSU and Michigan must have slow LBs... Thats why two were take in the first round last year, and many more will be taken in the next few years with Poz, Connor, Laurintes, and Harris all going day one.

Just for fun, the SEC has dominated the Track & Field championship since the 1980's.

Just for fun of course, because track & field has little to nothing to do with the speed of football players.

Ok man I honor your gutsiness and your balls to make this pick but any sensible person should no that this is not going to be pretty. Florida is a good team, but Ohio State is a great team on both sides of the ball. A dominant offense and a dominant defense.

Two things are going to kill UF. Inconsistency at QB and no running game. That and Troy Smith tearing up their defense.

Talent wise, it's no contest, Ohio St in a slaughter. However, this game will be between a overconfident Ohio St team vs a Florida team that has been hearing for a month that they don't belong on the same field as Ohio St. Football is still a game that can be decided by the team which is a lot higher emotionally for the game than the other team. That's why upsets occur all the time in sports.
Florida is going to be sky high for the game and Smith had better have his leadership qualities and mental toughness operating on all cylinders or you could very well see an upset. Emotion can negate talent a great deal of the time.

Eh, with Tressel, they won't be overconfident. Tress knows how to get guys up, how to pump up opponents and all that crap. Hell, on his radio show, he made it sound like Northwestern was going to kill us...

Tressel is a great HC but players are human beings and when you keep hearing in the press and from your friends and family, that Florida doesn't even belong in the game and won't be much of a challange, it will be very difficult to get emotionally prepared for the game.
I'm not saying Ohio St won't win but games like this are always dangerous when one team has the emotional edge and upsets do occur in these situations. I doubt the game is a cakewalk and I expect Florida will mount a charge at the start which Ohio St will have to contain and then mount its own charge in the second half.
I can remember very clearly a simular situation in the Rose Bowl quite a few years ago when an undefeated or a 1 lose Ohio St team, I believe, played a 7-4 Stanford team. As the teams lined up to run on the field, the first Stanford player to run out turned around and tried to tackle the rest of his teammates, he was so fired up and I thought to myself, this game may not be a blowout after all, and sure enough, Stanford upset the heavily favourite Buckeyes. From that time on I learned to respect emotion when predicting a game, and I predict Florida will give a great effort against Ohio St and cover the spread and perhaps pull out an upset.
HC's have never found the answer to over confidence, not even the great ones.

Both Tressel and Lloyd Carr are perfectionists when it comes to that. Overconfident? They haven't won the NC yet, they won't be, Tressel will make sure of that.

I'm gonna say watch the Dline. Gholston I think will have himself a big game, as will Pitcock and Patterson.

With as many weapons as OSU has on offense, Florida just can't stop em. Gonzo, Ginn, Robiskie, Hartline, Small, Pittman, Beanie, Maurice, and of course the Heisman winner. Ohio State is just better on both sides of the ball.
