"The Afghan Hound." That's descriptive perfection right there.

On another note... when Herbie said Skalski's targeting hit was "Exactly like Wade's"

I about puked at that.

I've never been one to criticize Herbie... he has a tough job and has to try to come off as fair...

But that comment was idiotic... Wade's hit was nothing like Skalski's.

Speaking of Skalski... that kinda looked like roid rage on the sideline after his ejection

I kid

Completely disagree. Replay fixes errors. Bad errors. 

What we had in the Fiesta Bowl was not 'replay'. It was a replay official (or officials) using their power to reverse a perfectly good call on the field, without the irrefutable evidence that gave them cause to reverse the call. 

Anyone notice how quickly Herbstreit called it a fumble and a touchdown on the first replay? Then the 'expert' weighed in, and said "well in slow motion it looks like a fumble, but in regular speed it looks like he didn't have possession."  Then Herbstreit essentially says... "well yeah I guess you're right". End of story.

That official, whatever his name was, went against the Buckeyes every time. It could be coincidence. But the fact is, you cannot reverse a call on the field without IRREFUTABLE evidence, and nobody even mentioned that during the pause for the replay. 

I was astounded... literally speechless when they reversed that call.

The on field calls were correct. And nobody questioned them. Then the replay official got involved and changed correct calls to incorrect ones. It would be one thing if they called it incomplete on the field and decided they didn't have the evidence to overturn. 

This. Irrefutable evidence is REQUIRED to overturn a call on the field. 

Not the other way around.

Our kids hung in there until the end. It was a great game, and our young men fought through adversity. Fields showed incredible composure under duress most of the evening. JK was a beast. The secondary did extremely well after Wade was ejected. The playcalling was something Buckeye fans haven't seen in... well... ever.  They kept battling even when everything went against them. Dabo knows he barely escaped. I'm not one to blame the refs, even when they screw up royally, which they did on that fumble call. We had opportunities to put that game away, and we didn't get it done. Clemson's red zone defense deserves credit, and that Lawrence kid is a leader... the real deal. Our defense shut down their passing game, so he took things into his own hands, like leaders do.

We're gonna beat those guys next time we meet... pretty sure they know it.

If dobbins makes that catch... it's an entire different ballgame

the 2nd half will show how good our coaching staff is

right now, the "smaller" clemson DL is winning in the trenches

if that doesn't change, gonna be a long night

for clemson - PAIN

for the bucks - REVENGE

to be served cold
