I can see maybe dropping OSU 1 for that win, but three? I mean, it was "close" but not that close, and historically, they've had problems @ Illinois for whatever reason. Ron Zook seems to have Tressel's number just a little bit. I think I would drop them only one, because they still won, and dropping them three gives them a lot of ground to make up to get back into the top 2 by year's end, assuming they go undefeated, and I'm SURE you'll agree that if they do go undefeated, they deserve to be in the top 2.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
