Ugh, really hate seeing any player on any team go down with an injury. These guys put so much time and effort into getting onto the field. Here's hoping he gets back to 100% so he can continue to chase his dream.

Well, they still award a national championship trophy that isn't necessarily the same as the CFP\BCS ( e.g USC won ap natty, but LSU the BCS natty in 2003 ). And there was some talk ( albeit delusional ) about tOSU winning it in 2012 when they were undefeated but disqualified from BCS contention. Hard to see them going against CFP champion though...

I disagree. The single biggest reason for the lack of offense was the loss of Tom Herman. Beck wasn't up to the task, not that it's entirely his fault - expecting him to come in and pick up where Herman left off is unreasonable. All season long the offense just wasn't clicking and Meyer referred to "communication issues" and it took a loss to finally remedy the situation. There's a reason Meyer made the off season move of moving Warinner to the press box and demoting a popular TE coach. And that reason is : TIm Beck.

Wouldn't trade Meyer for anyone, but he is human after all. Nobody is perfect and the pressure put on him by Buckeye Nation ( and himself ) is intense. Having said that, it shouldn't have taken him 11 games and a loss to figure out his Offensive Coordinator couldn't coordinate the offense. "The Grind" isn't a very positive rallying cry. And the QB situation could have been handled better. Claiming that the skill set of JT and Jones were the same so it didn't matter who started was a head scratcher. The coaching staff let down the players this year, IMHO.

I worked on the NCAA game for 6 1/2 years and was very disappointed it got canceled. The reason it couldn't continue with generic names  is that the conferences and schools started pulling out. Ohio State was the first school to not allow their brand to be in the game. There was a brief time before the actual cancellation that the game was still being made - without Ohio State. Dark days...
