The problem with this sentiment is that there are two outliers (16 and 18). Otherwise Ohio State was the lesser team in every other contest and it was clear at kickoff that they were not as good regardless of rankings. You imply there is a trend that quite frankly doesn't exist.

If we win tomorrow, the curse is alive and well.
