I'm not sure scheduling a plate full of patsies is "the norm".
Here's the problem OSU has: They're the big kid in class. When this 200 lb 12 y/o beats up a 100 lb 12 y/o, everybody says "So what? You're twice his size." If it's a good fight, it's "Damn, that little dude almost whipped your ***." And, if he loses, it's "That little dude kicked your stupid ***. You must be a *****!!"
They can't prove themselves.
