Buckeyes Finish 3rd in AP Poll

On January 8, 2013 by BuckeyeEmpire



The final AP Poll has been released, and the Buckeyes ended the season ranked the third best team in the country.  After Notre Dame fell horribly short in the National Title game to Alabama they only dropped to fourth in the poll.  Oregon leaped the Buckeyes to take the two spot, while Alabama tops the AP poll for the 9th time.  How Notre Dame only dropped to fourth is completely beyond me, but personally I blame the seemingly non-moderated  AP voting system as a whole.  Would things have been different with that ever present question of “What if?”  Maybe.  Either way Fall 2013 can’t come soon enough.  Go Bucks!
