Tate played a good game, but his 0-2 at the foul line late was big. He is shooting around 50% from the line and late in a close game that should buy a player a seat on the bench in favor of someone else who can hit those at a better clip.   Yes, I know he sparks the team.  I watched him at Pickerington Central a lot over the years and yes he is a playmaker, but in the late game situations when it is close foul shooting is critical, and he doesn't have that as part of his game right now.

When the first ever unanimous #1 preseason ranking and UFM's prediction that 2015 would be the year that this group really gels into a champion are the preseason expectations then not being satisfied with at least making the playoffs is not unreasonable at all.  

Did I enjoy the 2015 season?  Yes, yes I did.

While I did enjoy the season very much, to say that I was satisfied that this team didn't reach the playoffs would not be true, because it was supposed to do so, even according to Coach Meyer and many "experts", some of whom don't even like Ohio State Football at all.

Both feelings are legitimate and coexistent in my case, and I'm not morphing into anything.  I remain a lifelong Ohio State Football fan.

Letting preseason expectations dilute your enjoyment of a season like 2015 is a road to insanity, which is fine if you want to morph into a sentient YouTube comment.

What evidence is there that we are among the 4 best teams?  It's not like we were dominant in the rest of our schedule.  We looked rather mediocre in several games, and beat 1 ranked team all year.  We played 1 really good team, at home, on senior day, with their starting QB out, and got physically beat up and looked totally inept, managing 130 total yards and 5 first downs.  

Despite the individual talent, this team just never came together like we did last post season.  

This is a simple and honest summary of the 2015 Ohio State football season.
