Much to my chagrin, the Buckeyes were drilled again in the BCS Championship game. However, this year, they played much better, out gaining the LSU Tigers; however, penalties and turnovers killed Ohio State and LSU took advantage and made plays when they had to.
This morning I kept replaying plays over in my head and saying, "If only we wouldn't had that penalty. If only we would have caught that ball. If only we would have blocked that punt rather than roughing their kicker..."
If only. Life is full of if onlys. But that's life. We must play with the hand we are dealt and make the best of it. And that's what it appears the Buckeyes are doing.
OSU linebacker Marcus Freeman had this to say, "There were a lot of mistakes and a lot of penalties that occurred that definitely hurt this football team, but take nothing from LSU, they were doing a great job of what they were doing today." No excuses, just telling it like it is.
In any event, it sure is good to be a Buckeye!
