What an incredible loss and probably the key in getting Cooper fired a few years later. I guess it shouldn't be that bad now that we have Coach Tressel. That loss absolutely shocked me to the core though.
2006-07 Loss to Florida in the BCS Title Game. Florida came out and beat the snot out of OSU. OSU came in slow and lazy, something I never thought you would see out of a Tressel coached team. Troy Smith played one of the worst games of his career.
2007-08 Loss to LSU. Ohio State didn't have the talent but was playing well. They started the game out in a flurry up 10-0 and could have been better hand OSU not got dinged for a couple of penalties. After that they morphed into a bad team.
2005 Losses to Texas and PSU. Most talented team that I can remember. They had 1st round picks all over the roster in Holmes, Gonzales, Ginn, Whitner, Hawk, Carpenter, and Wells. Not to mention a Heisman winning QB. If Hamby catches the TD pass in the endzone OSU wins the game against Texas. Then the loss to PSU ended all hopes of OSU getting lucky and getting back into the BCS Championship mix. It wouldn't have mattered, but to have hope is a good thing.
