Born in Columbus, family moved to Texas at 3 years old and been here ever since. Dad graduated from Ohio State, so naturally, the choice of my fandom was easy to make.

The one positive to think about is that no matter where they end up playing for their bowl game, the weather should be better. JT clearly struggles to throw accurately when the weather is sour like it has been for the last several weeks.

I've been saying it for a while now, and the last play of The Game shows that it bears repeating.... instead of trying to throw to Samuel so much, let him take the ball from the backfield. He is literally a TD waiting to happen when he has the ball in his hands and blockers in front of him.

Finally, Prince cannot be put on an island consistently when JT drops back to pass. It's pretty clear that he needs someone to help him protect on a regular basis. I hope he improves over the next few weeks, but that's hard to do in a short amount of time.

Unlike most of his other poor games in the past where you could place most of the blame on the O line, JT doesn't get a free pass for yesterday. His line played well enough for him to play better than that. I usually give him the benefit of the doubt, but not this time. He flat out sucked. I don't know what's going on in his head, but he better get that shit fixed quickly.

It most definitely wasn't a sham. Players on both teams will tell you, they truly believed the two best teams in the country played in Columbus that night, and that game took a lot out of all of them. What I believe plagued both teams heading into their bowl games was strictly mindset and lack of preparation due to complacency. It wasn't because Florida and USC were that much better.

What pisses me off about Clemson and TTUN basically getting a free pass for their losses this last week on last second FGs is the fact that the EXACT same thing happened to the 2015 Buckeyes, and we got punished severely by the committee for it when we were clearly better than OU. Plus that Sparty team was much better than Iowa or Pitt this season.

If you're struggling with addiction — and I know somebody reading out there is — you're not alone. And as long as you're alive, you can save yourself from the spiral. If you need somebody to talk to, please email me.
I will counsel anyone going through addiction and listen without judgment of past indiscretions. That is my oath.

You're one fine American, DJ.
