Fantastic write-up. Fantastic game.
Wow! Another wonderful day for the Buckeyes
Bielema still has nightmares about that damn lock
Totally agree. Up here in MN (lots of Cornhusker grads) all laughed and said "Au revior" when we got Beck... that was the difference to our repeat.
This is why Urban gets the big bucks. Talent only goes so far. Training and coaching will be huge this offseason, as well as separating the guys who are committed to bringing it on every snap; from the players who are coasting along...
Would you rather get embarrassed in the Cotton Bowl (even though we'd be the team dishing out the embarrassment) or win the Fiesta... I wonder what MSU fans would say??
Many people believe it best to let the players make decisions on their NFL beginnings, but I think we should lock them up and hold them against their will... like the old Red Army Soviet Union used to do.
The more I think about it, the angrier I get that the Bucks aren't in the final four. It will be tough if Beck is calling any shots next year. If our offense is similar we are still doomed to our watery grave of tears.
Driving home from work a bit ago I was listening to KFAN; which is the big sports talk here in the Twin Cities. Everyone around here is pumped about the 4 star QB commitment they stole from Oregon, Seth Green. I wanted to call up and tell everyone to thank the Buckeyes for that. The Tristen Wallace recent Oregon commit created the Seth Green Gopher commit.
The moral of the story is several callers don't want the Quick Lane Bowl televised, because they don't want Green to watch the butt-whoopin Central Mich is going to lay on the Gophers... It just made me think how much happier life is as a Buckeye!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the day!
Ah, well... we'll get em next year.
We all knew beforehand that MSU had to beat up Iowa for us to leapfrog the Hawkeyes... A close game was not good for tOSU
Would much rather play Stanford in the Rose... this is depressing. But as far as fan bases are concerned Notre Dame is much more local and relevant to us.
Fiesta here we come! Rose Bowl will take next highest BIG...
Was at this game earlier in the evening. The Buckeyes really held momentum the first period and were opportunistic when their chances came. Gophers pressed hard the 2nd and it seemed like it wore our guys out. Played too much Tressel style prevent the remainder and never could start it the other way. Eventually it caught up... but the Gophers goalie looked real good and stole a few. Will be interesting tomorrow!
In a way... we have the Michigan punter to blame too...
Guys... unfortunately I am realizing that is going to be near impossible to get in...I know this take is annoying, even to myself, but if only Michigan State would have lost that miracle game against Michigan...
It's probably 95% Ohio State vs. Stanford for the Rose Bowl
