Ohio State football is fun to watch.
Hate 'em if you want, be skeptical about their bonafides, get annoyed with us, your average Ohio State fan, whatever. That's fine. But one thing that you can't do is deny just how freaking entertaining this team has been for years and years now.
Under Jim Tressel, I'll admit that I kind of reveled in the idea that Ohio State was the antithesis of cool; impossibly good while also being at times impossible to watch. And while I still think that the Tressel years were amazingly badass in their own special way, under Ryan Day and Urban Meyer the Buckeyes have a fully weaponized brand of football that is just absolutely kickass.
Throwing haymakers in New Orleans, Ohio State proved they belong.

Fields is special. I can't say for certain he broke a rib or ribs, but that was a nasty shot and gutsy to come back for the td, even if he's done for the night.— robert smith (@Robert26Smith) January 2, 2021

Told Skip on Thursday, OSU would run the score ip ,IF* they gotta a chance. Theyre are doing what I thought the would and should do. OSU couldve played 1 gm this year, theyre better than Clemson. Its that simple.— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) January 2, 2021
