Kicker posed a pretty good question that I think deserved it's own topic.
Is 2006 tOSU as good as 2005 UT?
I think on the surface, we can, and will, all agree that Texas 2005 was better than the 2006 Ohio State team is, but looking at the teams a little closer, I balk. There are a lot of parallels that can be drawn between the two teams.
- Great Leadership (VY & TS)
- Best Player in NCAA (VY & TS)
- Breakout receivers
- Stellar offense
- Solid defense
- Special players on both sides (Ross, Huff, VY, Taylor - Ginn, Laurenitis, Smith, Pittman)
- Hard fought victories against great teams (USC & Michigan)
I am curious as to what you think about the comparisons. The level of competition may be a notch lower this year, but are the comparisons apt?
