I graduated from OSU in 86 - moved to Florida in 94 - as much as I watched Buckeye football; I also could not help but watch SEC football during that time. I warned my friends up in C-bus at the time - our skill positions were fine - our O-Line was two steps behind the speed of the Gators D-Line.
Bottom Line - The O-Line would have had to play a perfect game. They did not and the speed of their D-Line ate them up.
Glad we progressed in our recruiting -
