This has been a fun senior class to follow over the years, and to be able to send this group out with a win over a traditional foe like USC seems appropriate, given all that they've been able to accomplish during their time at Ohio State. 2018 represents a ton of change and turnover for Ohio State football at many key positions, and we'll spend a lot of time analyzing and scrutinizing every possible angle of the depth chart and position battles, but for now, let's just sit back and enjoy the closing of an era.
Honored to have played with such an incredible group of seniors.. glad we could send them off the right way! #CottonBowlChamps— Drue Chrisman (@DChrisman91) December 30, 2017
I will definitely miss Marcus Baugh, his incredible 47-year old dad body and his mystifying 78-inch vertical— Ramzy Nasrallah (@ramzy) December 30, 2017

Sam Darnold got his first look, at the closest thing to an NFL D-Line and he failed big time.— Jermale Hines (@Male_Hines7) December 30, 2017
I really like Jalyn Holmes game. Kids like a Swiss Army knife. Plays every position on the D Line. Great size and athleticism too.— JAY RICHARDSON (@JayRichardson99) December 30, 2017

Strong start. That first buckeye pass rush showed that the USC o line will be in for a long night.— Mike Bennett (@mike96bennett) December 30, 2017

And that does it for this week and this year! It's been a fun ride, and hopefully 2018 brings just as much ridiculousness as 2017 did.
