I, along w/ many here, have been and am a die hard Buckeye fan, now living overseas in Korea. For past several years, I have been up at wee hours of the mornings watching every Buckeye game on live streaming online.
Since 2006-7 NC game debacles, I have been waiting for that day that when the national media and football fans alike can say that OSU is the king of the college football. And at beginning of this year and throughout, I thought this was the year.
Having watched games against school up north and against State, I have to acknowledge that this team is no where as good as its ranking for this year and even last. I have to be honest to myself by saying that we were soft 24-0. I now have to agree w/ national media that we played soft schedule and if we were in SEC, we prob would have lost 2-3 games if not more this year.
Great thing is, though, future still looks bright - great recruiting, already have talent on the squad albeit we do lose O line mostly, Roby and Shazier likely.
It really hurts and will for a long time. I remember the 1998 loss against the State and how stunned we all were, including our head coach. That was one of the best squad I've ever witnessed in 30 years and yet, we lost that one, and hurt for a long time.
Well, I am going to bed now in Korea, my wife will never understand this pain, nor my 3 year old and 5 year old kids who were born in Korea so they really don't know about American football period.
But sun will rise again. Hope for a good bowl game and start the chase again
love being a Buckeye fan
