I dont know if this has been discussed yet, but after watching the end of the OSU vs Wisconsin game saturday night, I thought Ohio State storming the field was quite pathetic for multiple reasons. First, OSU considers itself a national football program. If that is the case, someone explain to me why beating a 15th ranked opponeat is such a major deal. Is Ohio State admitting that they are taking a step backwards and dont consider themselves a power house football program anymore? Now you might say that OSU is down with all the scandals and such, and the win was a good moral victory, but you didnt see michigan storm the field after beating the 9th ranked badgers in 2008 after our program was going through some turmoil. Second, OSU and Wisconsin isnt even a rivalry game. Now I know wisconsin beat the #1 ranked buckeyes last year and stormed the field, so maybe that was a bit of a payback, but I dont believe the two programs have much of a history. I was always under the impression that when you win, you must act like you been their before. In which case i was shocked to see OSU that. Now i tried to find the last time michigan stormed the field and was unsuccesful, anyone remember when we did this last? I was shocked to see that none of the victories vs the Irish or PSU victory in 2005 netted any storming.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
