Five Dallas Morning News sportswriters made predictions for yesterday’s BCS title game. Here they are:
Brian Davis: Ohio State 35, Florida 28. “Ohio State’s Troy Smith will slice up the Gators. The Heisman Trophy winner goes out a national champion.”
Chuck Carlton: Ohio State 41, Florida 21. “Ohio State is so clearly the dominant team in college football that nothing else matters.”
Kevin Sherrington: Ohio State 35, Florida 32. “The BCS gets lucky and Ohio State runs the table.”
Tim Cowlishaw: Ohio State 37, Florida 27. “Gators prove a worthy opponent but Troy Smith hasn’t failed a test yet, and he won’t flunk this one.”
Jean-Jacques Taylor: Ohio State 31, Florida 26. “Troy Smith trumps Leak and Tebow.”
Florida won the game, 41-14. Not one of these “experts”—who get paid to cover sports—thought Florida would win, much less win big. If these sportswriters were in any other line of work, they’d be fired for incompetence.
Addendum: Here is the New York Times story about the game.
