Not sure you should look at it that way ShawneeBuck 74. Btw: you’re my main man here. You and Nutimpa.
Am sure the coaches are looking at this differently. The other side of the coin is, take away 3 mistakes by TCU [also good plays by the Buckeyes] and a 20-0 run, the completion of this game changes....e.g. 3rd quarter TCU leads 21-13 and has the ball. Up to that point, including the first have, TCU is not only in the game but dominated OSU.
Well, with few exceptions, after the 20-0 run in a span of less than 5 minutes I believe, OSU dominated the rest of the game and are clearly the better team. Still, better teams do not always win.
One more blemish: OSU gave up the longest play in their history when Darius Anderson sprinted for a 93 yard TD. Sure, was breakdown in coverage , but no one came close to catching a back that is NFL ready right now.
i am saying this for OSU sake to pinpoint what went wrong on many plays by the defense. On offense, yes, OSU got over 500 yards offense; most were on big yardage plays to their credit, and Dobbin’s power game. If I’m a coach though there were numerous times TCU’s speed controlled the line of scrimmage stopping runs at or behind the line of scrimmage.
maybe more later
