    Well said... I don't care what we have coming back next year we won't win our division next year if we don't make a coordinator move. As you say RB I will always wear our colors and Rep our university but I will hold no hope for the foreseeable future if we hang onto Warinner or Beck.

    Everyone is giving Warriner a pass and I think it's bull.... if he's the oline coach fine but he shouldn't be calling any more plays.

    Urban said it best "who wants to be around average?"

    Well... time for you to take your own advice UFM.

    I'm pretty pissed. Losing is one thing. Not competing is another.

    Anyone know if Urban hired Tommy Elrod leading up to this game? [sarcasm font]

    Well, first things first ... congrats to Clemson. Your team played well and deserved the victory. I've been trying to hard to dislike Dabo, but just can't find the right trigger. Just seems like a quality guy that has a program on the path to continued national prominence. Best of luck against Alabama ... go get the W.

    Took a while to read thru this thread. Lots of good points and I share much of the anger and disappointment. Guess it's best to switch gears a bit.

    We are a cursed breed my Buckeye brethren. Most every year 99% of the college football world would trade places with us ... and here we are bemoaning how bad we have it. What happened? How could this be? This player ... or that coach ... if only ... if only they were gone! If only they were gone ... we could remember fondly their greatness ... how much better it was when they were here. This damn Buckeyetis that I contracted years ago just won't go away. It's a terrible, terrible thing and it seems I'm destined to live with it ... year after year.

    Shortly after the game I was fairly convinced that this was the most disgusting loss I could recall ... and I'm old enough to remember quite a bit ... and maybe forget a bit more. Then I sorta remembered how well our defense played until their energy and emotional tanks were empty too. Can't be too bad if 1/2 our team fought hard ... but they still gave up 31. 31?!?! WTF! Worst. Loss. Ever ... Ever. Damn Buckeyetis. I'm in its grip and ... I'm learning to live with it.

    11-2 should make me a pretty happy fan. I'm not. Rebuilding year? Whatever. Youngest team in the power 5? Meaningless. 12 players drafted into the NFL from last year's team? So. Freaking. What. Damn Buckeyetis. I don't even want medicine. In fact, can you infect me with more?

    Joe Thomas Barrett, OSU record holder in career TDs, career passing TDs, season total offense, season TDs, season passing TDs, single game TDs, single game passing TDs, 2 time captain ... other awards too numerous to list. Not. Good. Enough. Do we have someone, anyone, that can complete a meaningful pass? Guess that means we would need someone to catch the pass ... Bueller ... Bueller ... How about running with the ball ... WITH the ball ... In. Your. Hands. Damn Buckeyetis. A cure? I'm almost certain Buckeyetis IS the cure.

    What I'm about to type will possibly end my life instantly via stroke or heart attack. Did our coaches even go to the Fiesta Bowl? Do you even football bro? Four. Freaking. Weeks. Damn Buckeyetis. I already miss football.

    But, it's just football. No. It. Isn't. Not at Ohio State. I'm proud to be a small part of the most psychotic, passionate and nutty fan base on the planet. Sure we are too demanding ... expecting perfection from our team and coaching staff. They expect nothing less themselves and I think they understand our passion is a reflection of theirs. Do we invest tons of time, energy and money to be the "best mediocre fans in the land"? Hell no. We want to be the best. Anything short of that would be a disgrace to our team and staff. They are all in, all the time. What you see from us is only a small fraction of the commitment from them. When we are upset, they are devastated. We want excellence, they have dedicated their lives to it.

    The season didn't end the way we wanted, but it was a hell of a fun ride. Thanks for a great season Buckeyes ... especially the players and staff.

    The offense was completely fucked in that game too. The only reason it wasn't a loss was Elliot's ridiculous 274 yard performance.

    We did a much better job than Bama's "greatest defense of all time"

    They were gassed after spending 80% of the game on the field.

    After seeing Watson torch Alabama for 420 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs (compared to 265, 1, and 2 versus the offensively-challenged Buckeyes) I'm wondering how you're still wondering.

    Yeah, that was probably the difference, the Ohio State offense (basically) had a bad case of "erectile disfunction" (i.e they just went limp :argh:).

    :lol: It is a little sad that it took a dreadful performance in a playoff game to off Beck, but better late than never!
