    Well, we brought that on ourselves by not trying to score in the second half. Gutty performance by a hobbled Ohio State defense down the stretch, but it never should have come to that.

    WHEW!!! Glad to see the Buckeyes win that. It was close, not pretty and there was a TresselBall sighting but a Win!! Glad to see the win occur and vs. a SEC team. (The Florida & LSU losses are still stinging). In the words of Chaka Khan in 1984, "This Is My Night"!!

    GO BUCKS!

    You mean that Big Ten Co-Champion could hold off the last minute come from behind charge from the 4th Best team in the SEC West by the great play of their suspended players that the NCAA granted "Jordan Rules" status to play in the Sugar Bowl?

    While Ann Arbor was outshown in Management acumen and decisiveness by Al Davis?

    Well, that's an overly cynical rendering of events. Arkansas was a 10-2 team (who beat LSU, played Alabama down to the wire and kept pace with Auburn until injuries caught up with them), and I'd say that at the end of the season they were a better football team than LSU and Alabama.

    I'm not making excuses for Ohio State, but if the entire defensive backfield doesn't get hurt two or three times over, I really wonder how close this game would have been in the end. That said, it wouldn't have been close at all without the performance of the vaunted suspended players, but it's not like anyone from the Southeastern Conference ever has problems with eligibility issues or the NCAA.

    Tressel should have kept throwing in the third quarter. We wouldn't even be talking about this now.

    That turned out to be a bit better of a game than I thought. It was a "give the game away" festival in the 4th, but still a good game.

    Mallett and the Razorbacks get the better of the Suckeyes tonight.

    Well they lost, so it wasn't really that good of a come from behind charge. And the Buckeyes lost their best CB for the rest of the game, so that really hurt.
    If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn't mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they've given it their best. That's a winner.”

    It also didn't help that OSU went ultra conservative on offense, after brilliant playcalling in the first half.

    Ohio State only attempted SIX passes the entire 2nd half.

    The Bucks did get too conservative for me. I felt like the 1st half was Awesome for the most part but when TresselBall showed up it wasn't fun anymore and I turned 5 shades of gray.

    Love the win though! Sugar Bowl Champs!
