Losing sucks. That's pretty self-evident. But what sucks more is when losing doesn't have a discernible rhyme or reason that can be fixed via a week of angry practicing. Obviously people will point to issues with the passing game and the secondary, but improving those aspects of the team alone aren't going to magically transform the Buckeyes into a playoff contending team.
But there's only so much you can do in a week, and next Saturday represents a chance to rebound against a team that mercifully seems completely disinterested in passing the football. In the meantime, understand that there's a whole wide world of social media out there to commiserate with you over this really crappy loss.

JT can get the job done. Everyone needs to elevate their game and that is urban's specialty. The bucks will bounce back— Mike Bennett (@mike96bennett) September 10, 2017

Win or lose, JT has done more than any player in OSU HISTORY. Best QB to ever play for the Bucks, so let's not forget & start point fingers— Cardale Jones (@Cardale7_) September 10, 2017

People (yes, even you) know so, so little about football and what goes on on a team/during a game lol. It's comical, really.— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) September 10, 2017

Next week will be a better week. Keep your heads up, and we'll make sure that a victory against Army is celebrated in the way that's appropriate for a delightful fall afternoon.
