Ohio State's 34–17 Win Over Navy in GIFs

By Jason Priestas on August 30, 2014 at 6:35p
Darron Lee had a monster afternoon for his first career start.

It wasn't easy—especially early—but a young Ohio State team overcame adversity on the road and beat a good Navy, 34–17, Saturday. Now, it's time to relive the game in GIFs.

We start with freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett's first pass of his Ohio State career – good for 14 yards and a first down to Devin Smith.

The first pass of J.T. Barrett's Ohio State career.

The opening drive stalled, but freshman kicker Sean Nuernberger would connect on his first career kick, from 46 yards out, to put the Buckeyes up 3–0.

Navy would go up less than a minute into the 2nd quarter on this controversial 4th down stretch that was ruled a touchdown.

Leading 7–6, Joey Bosa forced Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds into putting the ball on the turf, a minute into the 3rd quarter. #MANIMAL Darron Lee was in the neighborhood and scooped the fumble up for a 61-yard touchdown to put Ohio State back on top, 14–6.

Here are a few more looks at the play, which was pivotal in turning the game around for Ohio State: one, two and three.

Not long after, Lee blew up Reynolds in the backfield:

Ezekiel Elliott notched his first touchdown of the season midway through the 4th quarter, going untouched for 10 yards.

But Eze wasn't done. He wanted a pancake block, too.

Yeah !

I think it would help if the gifs had more

The Lee decleater and Elliott pancake speak volumes about the potential for team/unit play and contributing this season.

Seemed to me that Reynolds was a little less effective after the "Lee decleater".

Also, I think that "Lee DeCleater" would make an awesome name for a movie character. I think I'm going to start using that name when I make restaurant reservations.

We didn't look polished most of the time, but with our youth why would we.   We did look explosive at times, and with so many underclassmen on the two-deep, I cannot wait to watch this season unfold.

Anyone else notice that Wilson caught up to the play on that 80 yard completion? He was 15 yards behind it, at least and closed the gap to block that safety if needed. That's a different kind of speed.

Noticed that too. Also noticed he was wide open too on the play. Hope to see that all season.

beautiful flow. Awesome recap. FEELS GREAT!!!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

That first TD from Navy irritates me so much, I hate  how they rule on those. Yes, the pylon would show us that he broke the plane of the endzone, except that the pylon also sits right on the sideline! So if you touch it, really, you're out of bounds, not breaking the plane of the EZ!!

Nope, pylon is in the END ZONE, so if you touch it, you're in the zone.

I know that that's how the rule is interpreted, what I'm saying is that I DISAGREE. Don't put it right on the out of bound stripe, move it to where only the slightest sliver of green separates it from the sideline. Then, you can say it's inbounds and not OUT of bounds. But if you look at them, they're placed on the OUTSIDE of the sideline, not the INSIDE. That's bogus. Move the damn pylon to the INSIDE of the stripe.

SEE what I mean?!!

True, but what if your left foot steps out of bounds before you hit the pylon? Sure looked to me like he stepped out first.

Is there one of the huge Navy run after the scoop and score?

The gameday experience today was outstanding.  We won.  We played a very disciplined team made up of future American heros who are cheered for by the smartest, fittest, best-scrubbed college-aged kids you've ever seen.  Watching the midshippersons[?] march across the field to their seats made you wish you weren't hoping they'd lose.  Hearing the Star Spangled Banner sung by the Navy choir in the very city where British bombs were bursting in air back in 1814 set the tone for the rest of the day.  It was spectacular.  Before the opening kick-off, Navy and Buckeye players met at midfield for a handshake.  Then at the half, tOSU did a very cool tribute to Navy, which touched the older Navy grads around us, and topped it off with a Double Script Ohio.  Awesome, as always.  But the truly breathtaking moment that had everyone around me dumbstruck was at the end of the game, all players from both teams met at midfield, walked together toward the Navy middies' end zone and listened respectfully the Navy Choir sing The Navy Hymn.  Then they all walked together to the Buckeye end zone where TBDGITL did the usual Carmen Ohio.  The Navy guy beside me was really moved.  He asked me "Wouldn't it be great if that would spread?"  I thought, yeah that would be good.  Then all schools would do things right, like The Ohio State University already does.

Keep calm.  It's only a game.

I love the way JT carries himself. The gif of his TD celebration speaks volumes to the type of player he is. Almost business-like. 

I got a gray kitty, white kitty, tabby too, and a little orange guy who puts snakes in my shoes. Got mad MC skills, that leave ya struck, and I roll with my kitties and I'm hard as f*ck.

Yeah, the suit and tie he wears underneath his uniform helps him stay focused.
