Well I guess it's a good thing that they don't end football games with 9 minutes to go in the 4th quarter.....? Everybody relax. Dave can try and get under Big Ev's skin all he wants, but the internet was right there with him declaring Ohio State dead when Penn State took a 5 point lead mid-way through the 4th. Ten seconds later it was 44-24 Buckeyes. Won by 2 scores, and they would've covered the point spread too if Big Tennessee didn't jinx us and start a blog.
A shame to see for all Ohio State -15.5 bettors, but a classic reverse-jinx if Big Tennessee was on Penn State.
Besides that, the story of today was J.T. Tuimoloau having hands down the best defensive performance in Ohio State history, and maybe in college football history.
I see why he was the #1 rated player in the country. I also see why Marvin Harrison Jr might be the #1 overall pick in the draft….as a receiver….in TWO YEARS.
My god, we are so good. Overrated? I wish you all could feel what it feels like to get criticized for winning by 13 points on the road against the #13 team in the country. It's not fair, but it's the price I pay as a Buckeye.
The fact of the matter is that Ohio State just went on the road and hung 45 points on Penn State. Find a new slant if you want to say we're frauds. We won by 2 scores, and that's with perhaps the luckiest turn of events I've ever seen in football history going in favor of Penn State. I won't mention the tipped passes that became receptions, but I will mention the sequence where Penn State missed a field goal (then the refs called false start so they rekicked), missed another field goal (then the refs called a bogus alignment penalty and let them rekick), then they fumbled and recovered it on the one foot line. Insane.
No I'm not nervous about Michigan, and no I'm not thinking about them. We're on to Northwestern, lol.
