I think a lot of OSU fans see how Hoke is recruiting and that worries them a little. It was definitely nice going into that Saturday in November and knowing (or feeling pretty confident) that OSU was going to beat UM. But there are a lot of OSU fans, myself included, who want to see Hoke succeed and continue to recruit well. I think that when every thing comes easy to you- especially winning B1G games for most of the 2000's- it leads to complacency and you end up getting smoked in back to back national championships. As much as OSU fans hate to admit it, OSU needs UM to be good. And that will drive OSU to be better. More OSU fans will realize this once we get left out of the NC game this year.
