This is shaping up to be very similar to 2004. That team lost its FIRST THREE Big 10 games, and the sky was falling, fire Tressel, yada yada yada. Then they gelled and took off like a rocket.
I'll tell you this.... if the Buckeyes win out, find a way to claim the Big 10 title, and Fickell gets rehired, he can thank this game. We may be looking at this game many years down the road saying "This is where the Fickell era began." Long shot? Maybe. But I've gotta be honest, I could see it happening.
You're right, my bad. I had a high level of euphoria last night
Fickell still has a ways to go as a coach, but he too is showing signs that he is learning. I think the team made some good adjustments last night and even though I didn't love the play calling and obviously the defensive let down in the 4th quarter it will still better than some other games.
I really hope that the Bucks can win the next three and Nebraska or Wisconsin (or both) take out Penn State. It has been too long since the OSU/Michigan game mattered and this years game could very likely be for the winner taking a spot in the BTCG. That would be awesome.
