Looking over the latest odds to win the 2010 BCS National Championship, I have noticed a few tiers. The Florida Gators are currently alone at the top. Following Tim Tebow and Company is the group of Oklahoma, Texas and the USC Trojans.
Then, enter the Ohio State Buckeyes.
The Scarlet and Gray are currently at a 12/1, meaning that there is about a seven percent chance that the Buckeyes are holding up that coveted Coaches Trophy when it is all said and done.
The over-under in terms of wins for the Terrelle Pryor show is set at 9.5 games. If DP’s assertion of a USC win is correct, that allows for minimal slippage the rest of the way. The Buckeyes travel to Happy Valley this year, which looks to be our toughest conference bout on paper. They’ll host Wisconsin, then travel to Purdue, which has proven to be historically rough on the Big Ten teams. Others feel that Iowa could surprise as well. Without Beanie and the Brians (which could be a killer barbershop trio in about 20 years), are the Bucks primed to drop a game to one of the others?
