I know that it was a tough way for you guys to end the season, but thanks for a great ride.  You followed up an undefeated season with twelve more wins in a row--that just doesn't happen every year--but you guys made it happen.  I can't think of two back to back OSU seasons where I have had so much fun.  To our Seniors and anyone else who will not return, thank you for being a Buckeye!  What you have done in the years you have been here have added to the glory and greatness of the Ohio State University, and has helped to set the stage for continued success. Take pride in what you have achieved and enjoy what so few people will never know--what it means to be a part of a great Buckeye team.  There is no doubt that you guys worked hard and gave it your best.  For us fans, who aren't playing college football, but go about our everyday lives doing those humdrum things we do to survive in this existence we are blessed to have young men like you to give us something to hope and cheer for.  Thanks for giving us something to love and be proud of in this world!  Go Bucks!

Love the post John!  Yes, the team did not finish up the way we would have liked, but still this senior class did a good job to help get OSU back on the road to the program where we would like it to be.  Still a ways to go, but from a couple of years ago it is an improvement.  Now just need to bring in some top recruits, sure up the D and get ready for 2014. 
Go Bucks!

Another great year, and great effort.  We won 24 games in a row in two years.  We should have won last night even though we didn't play very well.  It's a great time to be a Buckeye!  Just look at what those poor losers have to deal with up north. Go Bucks!

The post was great to wake up to as I was thinking many of the same things. Thanks to all of the young men and coaches who work so hard 365 days of the year in making our university a great one. 
I would also like to add a thank you to the 98% of the fans and all of the staff at 11W who know how to separate games from real life. You also make me very very proud to say I am a Buckeye. 
GO BUCKEYES IN 2014!!!!!!

You guys have said it all, well done.

Many thanks fellas, God bless.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

There were so many great plays and players this year, but for me, Carlos Hyde is the face of Ohio State Football this year.  He was one determined, gutsy, incredible, not to be denied Buckeye.  I salute you Mr. Hyde.  No heisman, no Big Ten player of the year, nor any other national award that I know of to gather dust on the shelf.  Just the reality that you were the most tenacious running back in college football this year.  I am going to miss El Guapo plowing through the opposing teams next year.

I'll second that, Jonn. Carlos Hyde exceeded expectations is so many ways. The best back we've had in many years, in my humble opinion.

Good to see some other positive Buckeyes out there! What an awesome season and what potential we have as long as these young guns don't listen to the radicals and transfer!

Thank God for this bit of sanity. It was a great year, and the Bucks should be proud.
I'm already waiting for next season.
