Well, that sucked.
I should have known the night wasn't going to go well when I approached my seat and a bloated, beer-soaked bro was sitting in it. Said bro moved over and said to his Dad "damn I hit my head really hard on that seat, I am kinda embarrassed."
Very unfortunately he was a Buckeye fan. Within seconds of the kickoff it was clear that I might have the worst seat in the house. Apparently the loss can largely be blamed on Buckeye Nation not screaming loudly enough on 3rd downs. After the Spartans went up 17-0 thank goodness he left, only to return and ruin everything after the Bucks tied the game in the 3rd quarter. What a disgrace that goon was. A real stain on the fanbase.
Concerning the on field action I always love watching the Buckeyes play in person, but that one was tough to stomach. So many missed opportunities.
Kudos to Urban for benching Hall and kudos to Elflein for stepping up in a big way.
Braxton played well, he was really let down by the WRs big time. Hyde was dominant yet again.
As hard as it is to say, kudos to Connor Cook and the MSU pass blocking. They were stellar.
I am still trying to think of a single play that Noah Spence made. Same goes for the scUM game. Pretty disappointing.
I am uncertain about the near future of the team. I expect Tajh Boyd is going to have a field day in the OB. My stomach is already in knots just thinking about that. A lot is riding on Miller and Shazier's decisions obviously. I expect there to be changes with the coaching staff and that is certainly going to cause some upheaval.
I trust in Meyer's leadership and will look forward to the next time I get to watch the Buckeyes play in person.
