When he hit the hole I said "Zeke making it look EzE (Easy)! Wow, go EzE! Go EzE! Go EzE!" As I jumped up and down higher than I ever have before and would only match when Curtis Samuel ripped out Jim Harbaugh's heart.

J.T. absolutely would have led the team to victory. Go back and watch how much better he was in 2014 than 2015 or 2016. In 2017 he started to get back to 2014 form. J.T.'s problem was his broken ankle first and second was having Tim Beck as his quarterback coach and offensive coordinator in 2015 and 2016, and Ed Warriner as the other offensive Coordinator. Give him his healthy ankle, and working with Tom Herman for the remainder of the game against that team up north and against a Wisconsin team we absolutely murdered and there's talk for him to contend with Mariota for the 2014 Heisman at the very he's second and ahead of Melvin Gordon and Amari Cooper. Remember, he's throwing to Devin Smith, Michael Thomas, Jalin Marshall, Evan Spencer and Curtis Samuel and handing it off to Zeke Elliott and Curtis Samuel. 

J.T. wins us the 2014 title, the real what if questions are if he has a competent position coach and offensive coordinator in his sophomore and junior seasons, how good could he have been? Under Tom Herman and Ryan Day he had 30+ passing TDs and 10+ rushing TDs in both of those two seasons.

I love Jim Tressel but this game was lost on TresselBall. Our kicker went 5 for 6 that night. That's right, against one of the greatest teams in college football history, we settled for SIX field goal attempts. The offensive ineptitude was also on the offensive line, Jim Bollman never improved his players from the time they set foot on campus until they left, and this was proven in 2005. First when they settled for SIX field goal attempts and then when they couldn't stop Larry Johnson Sr.'s best defensive line he had at Penn State a few weeks later. This theme would return in the Debacle in the Desert, it's Sequel in the Superdome, back-to-back eggs laid against the Trojans, and the 2010 Meltdown in Madison. 

I gotta give the Vest credit though, he knew what his answer had to be and that was have a quarterback that had that x-factor of being able to make plays a traditional pocket passer couldn't which is why he put all his chips in on Troy Smith and Terrelle Pryor, to the tune of six straight Big Ten Championships, a Rose Bowl title, and a Sugar Bowl title.

Dane Sanzenbacher is one of my all-time favorite Buckeyes. The way he just did his job and was a solid guy is why my post-game recaps have an award to the quiet or unsung hero of the game award as the Dane Sanzenbacher award. 

I'll never forget his catch against Penn State or his fumble recovery for a touchdown against Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl. 

I like Tim Spencer too even though he was a little before my time. Some of my older and fellow BYU fans still hold it against him running over the Cougars and Steve Young and against the Buckeyes :)

Sorry, Bafiesta, gotta disagree here. Lawrence was the one who dipped his head first, bracing for the tackle. This was what made the contact 'illegal.' Wade was trying to hit tall ol' Sunshine lower to avoid this very thing but because Sunshine curled up and then acted like he'd been shot the bad call was made.

Eze, so many cases of it's flaws in this game. If it weren't such a cluster bomb they'd have not tossed Wade and extended a drive, or they would've called the punt block attempt running into and not roughing. Why have it if you can't use it to get calls right?

MW2014, After more thought and after thinking more about their red zone struggles, I wonder if maybe the aggression you and I were looking for was to go for it on a fourth down at some point? I feel like maybe a coach or the staff should say at some point, three red zone field goal attempts aren't going to beat Clemson? After saying all that, I'm still nitpicking and second guessing with hindsight, and can't truly fault the calls Ryan Day and company made at the time. It would have taken guts of steel to not take 3 at any of those points and is easy to say now and I wouldn't have thought much more of it if we had still pulled out the win.
