While I commend your efforts our piss poor performances in the last few rose bowls don't give us any ground to criticize OSU.
Thank god UM is not 0-10 in its last 10 Rose Bowls. 3-7 is pretty bad though. tOSU is 4-6 in their last 10 Rose Bowls. The Rose Bowl is essentially a home game for the PAC team though. Especially USC and UCLA. 4 of those losses were to those teams.

I was first aware of college football in 1971(age 5) I remember the Stanford upsets in the rose bowl. That pretty much led to the PAC 10 dominance of the big 10. Doesn't help the big 10, that its basically a home game for the PAC 10. You tube some of the old rose bowls with curt goody on NBC.

Auburn's longest losing streak versus Bama is nine.
Auburn's longest winning streak versus Bama is six.
Those are not the same numbers.
does the 16 represent your ACT score or IQ?
threepeat.....I posted bama's longest winning streak is 9 games, which in turn means Auburn holds the longest losing streak at 9 games. And that is what Cpt AUmerica was trying to convey to you as well.
I hope this clears it up for you.
Must of been disheartening watching that "little brother" beat up on the big bad tide a few years ago...
"I used to walk up a hill to and from school in my days", says every Clemson student ever.
This is stupid. There is no little brother in Florida. Little brothers don't win championships.
Over Miami in that span???
Trojan with no dog in the fight, but since NONE of the Florida teams were relevant until the 80's when Miami became the best team in CFB it seems to me that THEY are the big brother to both schools upstate
I know they consider FSU as their little brother but respect them
They would probably say they consider UF their little sisters because UF wouldnt play them for several decades
I know very few Canes who respect Florida and very few who dont respect FSU, mistly for that reason

A couple thoughts:
Regrading the state of Florida--
I've followed college football since the early '90's and in that time, it has been too close to call. If I had to make an order, I would say that Miami is the big brother, followed by FSU, followed by Florida. I can see the argument in favor of either school, but that's how I see. I think Florida's refusal to play Miami puts them at the bottom. Each school is dominant when they have the right coaching (see Butch Davis, Bobby Bowden and his assistants in the mid-to-late 90's, and Urban), and only pretty good with the wrong coaching (see Zook, Bowden and his assistants in the mid-00's, and Randy Shannon).
Regarding overall ranking of little brother programs--
Considering only in-state rivalries, here are my rankings.
2. Georgia Tech
3. Texas A&M
4. Michigan State
Finally, I know Penn State fans want to put Pitt at the bottom, but that spot is reserved for Iowa State.
First, Miami is not a state school, it's a private school, which is why I think they are not in the category of "brother". And yes, they have had the most success (5...really 6 titles but refs jobbed them against OSU) of the 3.
How you put UF at the bottom makes no sense when they have a huge gap over FSU in head to head wins? UF has not "refused" to play Miami...we play this year. The annual series was cancelled when the SEC expanded in 87. We have played 5 times since. And if that is why you put UF at the bottom of that list, then what does FSU refusing to join the SEC because it was harder in the early 90s mean?
I guess I can see the private school reasoning on not including Miami in the discussion.
Like I said, I can see why some would argue for each school. I think some would say that Florida cancelled the Miami series when Miami was getting to be really good in '87, and they used the SEC expansion as their excuse. Florida State didn't join the SEC, but they did continue to schedule each of the other in-state schools each year. That's the difference to me.
