Honestly, what's he supposed to say? I would have wanted Buckeyes in the 90's to have the same attitude. He said "I want to...." not "we are going to...." so fella, go work your tail off and put forth your best effort. I said/felt the same crap before playing the great St. Marys teams of the early 90's, then got my ass handed to me. I didn't give up till the clock struck 0 though.
Now the likelihood of this is a different story!!! Hope he is very unsuccessful beating OSU.
