I remember one of the best players in the nation, a guy who had scored the third most rushing TDs in the history of college football and had run for over 1,700 yards getting hurt and thus taking away Miami's best speed threat. That injury was huge and IMO gave OSU their shot. You can't understate the value of a guy who had 1,700 yards and scored 28 TDs. Heisman finalist don't grow on trees.
It has nothing to do with the speed myth but the pass intereference call on Miami before the winning TD was as bogus as they come. There is no doubt in my mind that Miami was the best team that year. I don't want to use the word lucky with Ohio State that year. I'll call them fortunate.
