Ohio State Is Really Obsessed With Beating The SEC

The Buckeyes want to beat the SEC bad. 

So bad their student newspaperis now making up teams in the SEC.

The Ohio State baseball team travels south this weekend for a series with 10th ranked Georgia Tech in Atlanta and they are eager to impress.

Whether it's track, football or baseball, the Southeastern Conference is often seen as the quintessential athletic conference, and sophomore first baseman and pitcher Josh Dezse of the Ohio State baseball team is sick of hearing about it.

"The SEC's got the huge hype and these northern teams are looked down upon, but I think the talent, I wouldn't say that it's even, but I would say that there is just as good of players up here as down there," Dezse said. "They may not all be on one team, but I definitely think that we can compete with those SEC schools, and it does frustrate us as a northern school hearing about that stuff."

Heading into his team's three-game series against No. 10 Georgia Tech, Dezse said OSU is eager to show what they can do.

"Hopefully this weekend we can go down there and prove that the Big Ten can compete," he said.
Regardless of how Ohio State plays this weekend they will return to Columbus winless against the SEC as Georgia Tech plays in the ACC.
