Ohio State apparel & merchandise flying off the shelves

With the Ohio State Buckeyes playing in the BCS Championship game for the 2nd straight season, Buckeye fans are flocking to stores both online and offline to buy the best Ohio State apparel, clothing & merchandise. From t-shirts and sweatshirts to hats, visors and golf club headcovers, OSU fans are dishing out the dollars. Hopefully the media will be smart enough to avoid the debacle of last season where the Columbus Dispatch sold pre-orders for "Ohio State Championship" newspapers only to see the Buckeyes fall to Florida in a blowout, but either way, Buckeye fans are rejoicing across the nation. So be sure to take a look at the great Ohio State hats & merchandise available online or visit your local Ohio State apparel shop.

Top 25 After Week 11

Assuming USC beats Oregon, here's my take on the Top 25 after a quite eventful Saturday.

1. Ohio State
2. Michigan
3. USC
4. Florida
5. Rutgers
6. Notre Dame
7. Arkansas
8. Louisville
9. LSU
10. West Virginia
11. Boise State
12. Wisconsin
13. Wake Forest
14. Oklahoma
15. Texas
16. Georgia Tech
17. Virginia Tech
18. Boston College
19. Maryland
20. BYU
21. Nebraska
22. Auburn
23. Tennessee
24. California
25. Oregon State

Personally I'd like to see Boise State, Wisconsin, and Wake Forest all in the top 10, but they can't jump that much this week. Rutgers really benefited from all the top 10 losses today.

Teams that I think have a shot at playing in the National Championship: Ohio State, Michigan, USC, Florida, and Arkansas.

I would take Florida out of the picture, but if they win out, I think it would be too hard for Rutgers or Arkansas to pass them. If USC doesn't win out, which is very possible considering their remaining schedule(Oregon, Cal, Notre Dame), I think the loser between Ohio State and Michigan actually has even more of a chance at getting a rematch in Glendale, Arizona.

What does this mean for Ohio State and Michigan?

If Texas still had consideration for the National Championship with their only loss being at home, pretty handily, to Ohio State, how does Michigan losing on the road get knocked out of the picture? Especially for a team like Florida who has struggled and just not looked impressive at all over the past few weeks, or a team like Notre Dame, who Michigan completely smashed on the road. Things were pretty interesting before, with so many "valid" 1 loss teams in the picture, but I think things start to really get interesting now that most of those teams either lost, almost lost, or looked pretty bad winning.

And what about Wisconsin?
