We really need 6 more.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

This is the game of squandered Ohio State opportunities. You hope it doesn't cost them in the end.

So many points left on the field by this team today. Ugh.

I hate games like that. Reminds me of the '05 Texas game where tOSU scored 22 points. Yes, the only rational way you can score 22 points is by kicking 5 field goals and that is exactly what the Buckeyes did. They actually missed one in that game if I remember correctly. You cannot generally win games when you try 6 field goals. Buckeyes have tried 5 today.

This is the closest blow out I have seen in a long time. This game very easily could have been a shut out.

3 big plays... the muffed punt, Denard's run, and the long pass to Roundtree. Other then that, they did nothing all game.

Yep. The score doesn't reflect it but that game was not really very close. Bucks kicked too many field goals and those 3 big plays.

Coming into the game today Drew Basil had 6 FG attempts on the season; today, 5.

Which is fascinating. This team had finished in the red zone all year, and today they didn't. Would've really helped out to do so.

Man. 12-0. Yet still all these things to critique. Urban's going to run train on the B1G for 10 years.

Agree, today's final score did not reflect what really transpired on the field for 60 minutes. But, scum does deserve a lot of credit for that as they did not really let BM beat them with his legs.

Big Ten down, OK fine, but so was OSU.

12-0 is 12-0, doesn't mean we're worthy of historical comparisons but it does mean that UofM sucks. scum ranked 8th pre-season, hahahahahahahahahahahah.

What a fun day. You couldn't ask for a better day to play OSU/scUM with the cold air and the grey skies.

Great team? No, but this season was great and a resounding success.

The season did go way too quickly, no more OSU football till April.

12-0.

Solid take CDT.

Urban Meyer and his staff now have a shot to really put a bow on a very good 2013 class and to build on their impressive jump on 2014. Also, and maybe more importantly, the staff will get some time to figure out how they are going to go forward and maybe take some time off to prevent burnout. Sucks to miss the bowl practices, but Meyer didn't have bowl practices last year either.

I hope they can figure out a better, more complete O using the available tools for next year. Mediocre defenses were able to stop the O cold by playing 2 spies on Miller. I am pretty sure that 'Bama would have held this 0 to less than 100 yards. With their LBs and athletes I am not sure they need a spy.

Don't underestimate the importance of a 12-0 record in 2013 and 2014 recruiting. If the recruits had any doubt about whether Meyer would dominate the B1G, I am pretty sure that was answered.
