With their devastating loss at the hands of the Wisconsin Badgers, the Buckeyes once again let a perfect opportunity to control the Big Ten slip away. Death, taxes and a Buckeye letdown...all things that one could consider a certainty.
It seems like each season Ohio St. has all the talent they could imagine and everything in place for a national title run, but they find a way to lose focus and throw it all away. The Buckeyes are now looking up in the standings at Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin and would need all kinds of assistance if they are to make it back to the apex of the Big Ten. Granted the game was played at hostile Camp Randall Stadium, but if the Buckeyes ever want to be considered as one of the top programs in the nation these are the games they need to find a way to pull out.
No doubt many supporters of THE Ohio State University are left with feelings of disappointment and remorse, but if the Buckeyes can find a way to win all of their remaining games they may have an outside shot at a BCS Bowl bid. It surely will not be an easy feat, but they pulled it off last season and saved themselves from having to answer to all the doubters once again.
Terrell Pryor needs get himself sorted out and put some better performances on the field if the Buckeyes are to have any shot at redemption. His effort against Wisconsin simply wont get the job done.
