I don't want OSU to burn to the ground. I like it when they're good, but we're just better. I like beating them when they're at their best. Thats what fuels the rivalry. I do hope they have a few down years though so we can become dominant to them for a little bit as payback, but all in all I would like a competitive rivalry. The death penalty would destroy the greatest rivalry in sports.
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
