It seems the Heisman curse continues to plague college football's so called "best" players. Troy Smith in my opinion was the most overrated quarter back during his years at Ohio State. The WRs he had to work with including Beanie Wells at RB is what made him look awesome. The National Championship game against Meyer and the Gators showed how overrated he was. Dominated completely and only completed 4 out of 35 passes in the 2nd half to lose 41-14. Watching the Buckeyes getting their asses kicked in that game pissed me off at the loss we took in 2006 so bad. I will go to my grave always believing we should never of lost that game. Would of been amazing to go to the national title game that year. I honestly believe we would of given Florida a game had we of won in 2006. We always seem to do well against the SEC. I was honestly worried about going into the Rose Bowl cause our record against USC is not that great. Smith was never going to be good in the NFL and his NFL resume is proof. He did nothing in the NFL.
