In the first half, the Buckeyes got punched in the mouth. 

The Badgers were out-toughing the local team and Ohio State was not ready for it. 

This is 100% true.  

The same thing happened in the first half of more than one game this season.  

Halftime adjustments must happen happen in the playoffs as have happened so far this year, but the flat first half is not a luxury going forward. . 

The Buckeyes must be ready from the opening whistle, and play through until the end of the game. Nothing less will get the job done.

A "meaningless game" mentality (because everyone seems to assume that the Buckeyes will be in the Playoffs, regardless) is always a dangerous recipe for potential disaster. 

Exactly. 

The game isn't determined until the final score is posted, not before kickoff.

Lady Buckeye:

Agree with the minimalist perspective.  Words aptly spun need not be numerous. 

Ramzy is one of those writers whose prose is a joy to read.  For me, like reading Hemmingway.  

It is always a treat, and then sometimes it is even more special than that.

"I think he kind of always saw himself in this moment, at a place like Ohio State."

Justin Fields originally committed to Penn State. Imagine if PSU had landed him. Glad it worked out the way it did in the end.  Fields is special; players like him don't come along every day for sure.  

Day said the first thing Cooper did this week was ask to go to the scout team to help out.

That speaks volumes about Cooper's character.  A true leader is first of all a servant.

 When I come across good excellent, singularly outstanding writing it's such a wonderful shock. Your writing is like an oasis in the desert.

FIFY

He seemed genuinely at a loss for words when he was interviewed on the field immediately after the game.

I noticed that as well. 

The Buckeyes are in good hands.

I agree.

I'm sure that I'll be just as nerve wracked and anxious as I was last Friday. Each new Game is an opportunity to for Ohio State to either lose or gain a pair of holy gold pants, and the outcome is never truly known. There will always be a Threat Level to assess, because the Threat never goes away.

I agree. 

Always jacked when OSU plays Our Rival.
