Let me preface this by saying that I am from Ohio, but I hate Ohio State (yes, we do exist)...
The answer is obviously Ohio State. They have displayed no weakness all year, with the exception being the fact that they let Michigan back into that game in the 4th quarter. Florida, on the other hand, lost a tough game and was very fortunate to beat Tennessee and South Carolina. I agree that Florida had a tougher schedule and has great individual stars, but they will need all the big plays to go their way and a defensive miracle to pull off the upset. The funny thing about the Buckeyes is that there has not been one point all year where you said "wow they might actually lose today"...they have been simply dominant.
Also, nobody repeats in college basketball...the nature of the ncaa tourney makes it too tough. I think it has only happened once in the last 30 years. Again, edge goes to OSU.
