I wonder if this stat was starting to mount pressure on the staff, and maybe even the players? I always sort of looked at it like one of those 'created stats' where its wasn't like we never lost when we left the Horseshoe. This 'true' road loss thing, doesn't mean a whole lot. I'm happy the streak is over, so the staff doesn't have to answer questions about it anymore...that is until we put another string like this together.

I mean, some of the posts and memes I saw of our rivals just basking in the glory of the Buckeyes losing was ridiculous...but sometimes funny. I mean, I saw one of Deon Sanders in a jheri curl saying that's the last time we'll be ranked in the top 5, lol. I mean, who comes up with this shit?

We don't have to be a great team right now. I think beating Oklahoma started to weigh on everyone as the weeks went on. We went from the youngest team in the country and a touchdown plus underdog to the Sooners week 1, to 'we're going to steamroll everyone in our path' after week 3. The season flipped from young, inexperienced and a repeat of 2015. It's a terrible way to watch and try to enjoy the season, where nothing short of winning by 3 scores is good enough.

I hope they drop us in the polls to where the media thinks we're out of the race (not as low, of course, but similar to how they did in 2014). This year's scheduled is loaded with quality matchups in November - we don't control our own destiny, but we'll have a seat at the table on NYE as long as we make it to Indy...and win.

Urban has had 5 losses now. The only loss that I couldn't do anything but Bosa shrug on was the Va Tech loss at home. We just couldn't believe they gave us the bear front look weren't going to win that game. The other 4 losses, we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. MSU/Clemson/MSU/Tonight. Now, I'm not naive enough not to totally understand that we have won 3 or 4 games that we had no business winning (Purdue 2012 instantly pops into my head) but still won - so it all evens out in the end. I'd rather take the loss now, than later.

But I don't need to see the stats to already know this was a loss Ohio State shouldn't have taken

I mean, what in the wide world of sports was Urban and the offensive staff thinking on 4th and 7? You sent in the kick team with 11 seconds left on the clock when they started to run on the field. I saw the miss coming a mile away

We'll be playing games in bad weather every year. There's no excuse for that, I don't wanna hear it. I'm fucking tired over the years of watching us lose games that we have no business losing.

That 2005 white out was definitely the best of them all. I remember just marveling how loud the crowd was, and how cool it looked as I watched on not-yet HDTV. I'll never forget Troy standing in the pocket as the DE barreled down his blindside in the 4th - never heard it coming. The Buckeyes struggled with the crowd noise a few times during the game. 

It was the one (and only) time where they caught us with that white out. But after that...
