I know exactly what happened. Purdue coach Danny Hope never prepped his team for Hurricane Guiton. You only have yourself to blame, man.
Unbelievable. Ohio State comes back from eight-down with under a minute to go to win it in overtime.

WOW! Kenny Guiton has Ohio State in the red zone after two nice completions!
Ohio State will have less than a minute left to try and score a touchdown and convert a two-point conversion.
This poor guy.
Ohio State fans, this is your offense without Braxton Miller. If you need directions to the nearest liquor store, here's Google Maps!
Kenny Guiton throws an interception on third and 13. That's likely the ball game.
Important sports take here:
Kenny Guiton does not clap as loud as Braxton Miller.
Carlos Hyde picks up nine yards on fourth and two, deep in Ohio State's territory. That could've been the ball game.
Totally subtle, man.

The Buckeyes hold Purdue and will get the ball back with less than six minutes to go.
Can Kenny Guiton lead a touchdown drive and convert a two-point conversion? That's what Ohio State needs to force a possible overtime.
Braxton Miller is reportedly on his way to the hospital. Things couldn't get much worse for Buckeye fans today.
Wish Braxton well with whatever's going on.
