Scott Van Pelt blasted Ohio residents who believe that Ohio State would beat the Cleveland Browns.

Earlier this week, a public poll showed that 62% of those polled in the state of Ohio believe that Ohio State would beat the Cleveland Browns in a football game. The Browns, by comparison, got 23% of the vote. ESPN's Scott Van Pelt took Ohioans to the woodshed on Friday night.

Van Pelt, in a two-minute rant, argues that the Browns' team is made up entirely of NFL players, while Ohio State, at best, will have 20% go on to play in the league. Check it out:

In short, he's right. There is no college football team - and there likely will never be a college football team - that can beat an NFL squad on the gridiron. Even when it comes to the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes vs. the winless Cleveland Browns.
