First the Buckeyes go from a shot to play for the MNC to losers of the Orange Bowl in the span of two games.  

Then the Bengals go from showing promise as AFC North Champs (one New England loss away from a first round bye I might add) to yet another first round playoff exit.

At this point I fully expect the basketball Buckeyes to win the B1G, earn a 1 seed, and get bounced in either the Sweet Sixteen or Elite Eight, at which point I will officially lose my shit.

Hmmmm....not sure about Vonny Football (the name not the player).  The way he caught air to snag that, I'm going with "The Bellevator"

I respectfully disagree.  First off I believe he was legitimately playing injured for much of the game.  I blame that somewhat on the coaches for not at least bringing him out for a few series to really find out.

Secondly, I don't think a player who is protecting himself for the NFL is going to try to bowl over a defensive player like he did on that touchdown.  That seemed like all effort to me.

I know we should be happy with 12-0 followed by 12-2, and I agree that those are seasons that 95% of the college football world would love.  But heading into the new playoff format this team will be much better of if they can turn into a 12-1 type team who beats big opponents like some of our upcoming OOCs and drops a game that they shouldn't to what people view as an inferior team.  

Take the '98 team for instance.  That team lost a game they never should have.  But if you put them in a championship game with anyone that year I would have had about 100 times more confidence in them than I would have this team at 13-0 on a 25 game win streak.  I guess my point is that it's not all about the record.  What this team accomplished the last two seasons was great, but to view them a great or elite team might not really be correct.  Not bashing, just my two cents.

I don't think you should be down voted. And Braxton may be a very good college athlete, but as far as QB goes I think he's hit his ceiling.

Ironically at the beginning of the year I actually thought he had improved as a passer but I think that part of his game regressed as the end of the season came.

Unfortunately I just don't think you can rely on him to win the game with his arm.  I know he has but those seem to be sort of "miracle" plays (ala Wisconsin at the Shoe the season before last).
