How Tressel would have voted would not have determined who his opponent was. The margin between Florida and Michigan in the coaches poll was 26 points. Assuming he would have had Michigan & Florida as #2 & #3 (either order), the difference of where he voted them would be 1 point. (24 points for 2nd, 23 points for 3rd.) Since 26 > 1, it's assured that his vote didn't matter for anything other than bulletin board material. I don't follow the polls as much. But this comment is interesting. If it is true then just what is all the fuss about Tressel not voting. I do believe Michigan is the better team over Florida. As an OSU fan I could care less who we play. OSU is the best team in the country & we will all see it soon. O H !

If the girl is going to be a starter at the guard position, that means she can get those 300lbs moving! I just want to add that not all the women who play football on the O-line or D-line are 300lbs. Don't get me wrong there are some big girls on these teams!

Men are stronger and have that advantage over her and she would have to be VERY confident she can compete with them. Even so there is no reason she can't compete at a higher level. There are actually three women's professional leagues. The NWFA is the largest with 35 teams. These women can really play. You can't compare them to the NFL for many reasons. I always say if you are a TRUE FAN of football you can watch it at any level. I love the game....from the kids who play PeeWee to the Pros of the NFL and all those in between. Check out to see if there is a team in your area and give them some support.

If she can't play football during her college years, she can play Women's Professional Football in the NWFA league. They have a team in Columbus called the Comets. They had a great year this season. They were a 5-3 wildcard team entering the playoffs and made it to the third round before losing to, the now current NWFA Champions, DC Divas. I am sure the Columbus Comets would love to have her on their team.
