This is some of the worst play calling I've seen in quite some time. I'm loving the fact that Baylor was held to 3 points in the first quarter when they average 24 (23.5).
I was at that game in 2009. Thinking about it, even 4 years later, and I still want to throw up. I swear to GOD, that game took 10 years off my life.
Having not grown up in Oho, attended tOSU, as well as being an extremely new fan, I wasn't familiar with Dom. I saw the story on Bleacher Report, and just watched the video a few minutes ago.
WOW. Amazing video, super classy and genuine move by these players. Although I'm a newly minted Buckeye fan, I'm incredibly proud to call myself a fan after watching this. Well done, Buckeyes, well done.
It's definitely pleasant to see! The defender took the correct angle... to tackle a normal "fast" person. Unfortunately, he's a faster than normal fast and was a step ahead. Running the ball, good blocking, great field of vision. I'm a fan already.
I love how pick out what they want and say it was the quote. Here is the whole thing:
"How well would they have done if they played the six (SEC) teams ranked in the Top 10?” Saban asked. “Would they beat them all? Would they beat three of them? And I think they have a really good team and Urban (Meyer) is a great coach. I’m not questioning any of that. I’m just saying that’s where strength of schedule and who you play don’t get sort of accounted for quite equally.”
All that being said, I hope you guys continue the success you had last year. I enjoy seeing classic, old school powerhouse teams come back to the place they have earned. (Except Michigan, Notre Dame, and USC... I hate all 3 of them) My fiancee is a Buckeye, and I've adopted them as my 2nd favorite team, only behind Alabama as that's where I grew up and went to college. I watch them each and every week, cheer them on and wear my Buckeye apparel while I do it.
I'd love to see an Alabama vs Ohio State NC game. Well, it'd be a classic game with classic teams, and it's always a good game when it's Saban v Meyer. It'll be a rough time for me, since my girl is a Buckeye. One of us is going to be VERY sad at the end of the game, I'm just hoping it's not me.
