Good comparison though.
Bowls (in theory, not in so much in practice due to contractual shit) are supposed to at least match teams that are about the same level of play.
Ohio State and Bowling Green have to play by the same roster rules however. OSU uses its money and influence to get better players (not paying them, that is not what I'm implying) bowling green cannot.
(ps I hope this isnt coming off as angry discussion, I'm just bored in a tree stand)
