I got nauseous when I saw the lines for Ohio State-Florida A&M and Miami (FL)- Savannah State this week. As I watch the Buckeyes almost put 60 up on the Rattlers before halftime, I want to vomit.
We all know the drill. FCS schools will take a nice paycheck from a big FBS school to come into their stadium, get steamrolled and go quietly into the night. Some schools (Appalachian State, North Dakota State) are exceptions at times and pull off a huge upset. With Florida A&M and Savannah State, the white flags are should be waving as the teams take the field.
Weeks 1 and 2 are the usual "get your butt kicked for a big check" weeks during the college football season. The fact that it extends into week 4 is troubling.
The Buckeyes have played Buffalo, San Diego State and California the first three weeks. So after having to play a formidable opponent out of the Pac 12, the charitable Ohio State slides the Rattlers of Florida A&M, (more known for a hazing death in the marching band than their football team) into their schedule for week 4.
Savannah State is making bank for their program. Last season, they lost 84-0 to Oklahoma State and a week later, went to Florida State, and lost 55-0, which was ended by mother nature's mercy rule: lightning.
The Tigers only scheduled one sacrifice this year down in Miami against a Hurricanes team on the rise. They are also 60 point underdogs.
We can't stop it. It will continue. But please! Make the madness stop after week 2.
Ohio State beat the Rattlers 76-0 and Miami (FL) is having a good time with Savannah State in the 2nd quarter 42-0 with four minutes to go.
