Capitol Hill Dispatch 1.9.07 - Go Bucks :(
(Top- OSU head coach Jim Tressel, in happier times. Certainly not last night :( www.frii.com)
Well, that OSU/Florida game last night sure was a tough one to swallow. I wanted to cry or run over there to help them in any way I could, by kicking a field goal or ferrying gatorade along the sidelines or something.
It wasnt just that Florida looked good. And when I say Florida looked good I am not just talking about their insanely mignon quarterback. I would take an OSU waterperson covered in warts and unfortunately dispersed body hair over any Gator any day.
In the spirit of unadulterated school football pride, I must remind you all that OSU players have won the Heisman trophy more than any other college football program (7 times.)
You wouldn't have known that by watching our fair Buckeyes last night. We werent even fair. We were a complete disaster.
Tedd Ginn junior returned the opening kick for 93 yards, scoring a touchdown within the first moments of the game, and all of Ohio loved him at that point. Soonafter, he was out with an ankle issue, caused, he said, by his jumping around in the endzone when he made his touchdown. The game essentially went to crap after that.
Its a difficult thing to say when you love the Buckeyes as much as I do (which is not even as much as most of my sorority sisters who still regularly drag themselves out for away games), but maybe the system for selecting the national championship team does need to be shaken up so that it isnt dominated by the Big Ten just for the sake of being dominated by the Big Ten. I would like to have another season of practice and know we could beat Florida or any of those other piddly SEC teams. Well, maybe a season and a half.
Even on the bleakest of days, I continue to say, Go Bucks.
