You knew it was coming…I knew it was coming…but even I didn’t think it was going down like that.
I thought the 18 point spread was a little aggressive, but apparently it wasn’t aggressive enough because Ohio state got whooped. Look, I know Ohio State has been embarrassed in the last two national championship games, but they took it too far this time. They not only embarrassed themselves, they embarrassed the Big 10, they even embarrassed me while I was watching it.
Ohio State fan, what exactly were you waiting for again? Beanie Wells was not waiting for a miracle, he just wasn’t playing. Jim Tressel did not have a master plan for tripping up USC. Oh, and the Ohio State Buckeyes are not that good. That Ohio game was not a fluke, it was an indication of how good this team actually is. You know the worst part? Ohio State didn’t play that badly. They executed on defense, they were running decent plays on offense, they just simply were not better that USC.
Hey Jim. What ya handing out Buckeyes for this week?
“Todd Boeckman, you took a hit from the blindside and managed not to suffer whiplash. You get a buckeye.”
“Terrelle Pryor. When you were running away from the USC defense, you still looked like you were playing the game as opposed to scrambling for your life. You get a buckeye.”
“Beanie Wells. But not playing you are the only player who made a positive contribution to the team this week. Buckeye.
OSU did do one thing right. They scheduled the always tough Troy University, of Troy state, in the town of Troy…wait, where the hell is Troy? Way to keep the tough teams on the schedule there. That is how you always bullshit your way into the national title game.
You want to know what is crazy? OSU will probably be ranked long about 10 this week. If they win the Big 10, and win out the rest of their games. They will be right back in the National title debate. If top teams lose the way they did last year, they will be talking about their “quality loss” against USC.
We don’t need another debacle like that.
OSU, I need you to Man Up just go ahead and get another loss out of the way now. Sometimes you can Man Up by stepping down. Do what’s right.
Oh and Will and Triple B…HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaa! I love it.
