Well tomorrow is the day we’ve all been waiting for, the day we all knew was inevitable, the Big Ten Championship Game. With the Buckeyes facing off against the Michigan State Spartans, who statistically have one of the best defenses in the country. That concerns me a little with how the Buckeyes played last weekend, if this team wants to win they CAN NOT turn the ball over. Another thing that I am concerned about is the defense, which defense is going to show up; the good one or the one we saw get torched by Devin Gardner? If that defense shows up its going to make it very difficult for Ohio State to move on to the National Championship Game.
Speaking of the NC game our possible opponent in that game if we both win will be Florida State. Now I’m guessing you all saw the news yesterday that QB Jameis Winston will not be charged in the sexual assault case that he was allegedly involved in. So he will get to play out the season with no suspension or anything happening to him. On that note I call Bullshit! If this happened at Ohio State and that player wasn’t reprimanded the public would want Urban Meyer’s head on a stake. Look at Bradley Roby and Carlos Hyde those two were involved in minor incidents and were suspended, but Jameis Winston probably raped a girl and he doesn’t even get a slap on the wrist. Makes sense I mean it is the south and they have no morals or standards anyway so it shouldn’t come as a shock, still kind of bullshit though. And its still fishy that the investigation was closed but then reopened cause of the media. All sorts of conspiracy theories going around now, but I’m sure we will never know the whole truth.
With tomorrow night being the deciding factor for the National Championship game let’s hope Ohio State goes out and performs the way we know they can. Everyone is rooting for us to lose, so it’s time to finally shut the haters up and Beat Sparty. The Buckeyes are going to need to run the ball extremely well and that shouldn’t be hard with Hyde and Braxton Miller in the backfield. They are also going to need to spread the field to open up that defense, so Braxton will need to make good smart throwing decisions.
Now on the defensive side of the ball the defensive line needs to get pressure on Connor Cook. They will also need to get off the field on 3rd downs, they can not allow the Spartans to gain momentum and have long drives. So Coaches Luke Fickell and Mike Vrabel better have the defense ready, and focused. The team can not look past the Spartans if they do we will lose this game and any hope of playing in the NC game.
So stay safe those of you at the game, and GO BUCKS!
Also Big Thank You to the members of the military currently serving and those that have served!
