Im tired of having my heart ripped out by god fucking awful coaching. There is no excuse for this. Hoke, as the head coach, needs to tell Borges to use Denard. I understand that he isnt an offensive coach, that is just complete and total misuse of your biggest weapon. Now I will be pissed for the next 364 days. Thanks Al and Btrady for ruining my year you fucking fucks.

It should have been the title game against Notre Dame but out AD rolled the dice and it came up snake eyes. Still, we beat the snot out of Nebraska, won close games at Michigan State and Wisconsin and had narrow wins over Indiana and Purdue. (Damn! Purdue was able to force overtime!)

But props to Michigan. They played four good teams, lost to all four, but still managed to make the, what, Gator Bowl? I suppose you can take solice in that.

I get that Al hasnt been a spread OC before, but the shit that worked in the first half, you just keep going along those lines. He out smarted himself and lost us this game

I understand the OSU team has awarded Al Borges the game ball!  That second half play calling and personnel usage was atrocious.  Did he think it gave us an unfair advantage to have Devin and Denard in at the same time?

Can't wait to see this press conference! I hope the press asks tough questions and doesn't let that one answer bullshit fly! I want to know what the fuck they where thinking during that second half.

Props to Greg Mattison, you sir earned your paycheck this week and all season for that matter. Big Al, please go back to wherever the fuck you came from. Peace Out!

Ps. Our Basketball team is LEGIT! Go Blue!

Not really much to say about the offensive play calling. Borges needs to rethink about some calls he made and learn from it. Hopefully Michigan Basketball can take care of OSU to take care of some of the sting.

Why did we not line Denard up at RB in the second half. It just blows the mind. This was the most winnable game we'll have at the horseshoe for a long time. Really pathetic stuff on offense.

I am pissed at Borges too for play selection.

Defense played amazing and pretty much did all we could ask.

Silver Lining:

This can still be a pretty good season of we win the Capital One Bowl against a highly rated SEC team. Coaches can redeem themselves in Florida.

One, take solace in the fact that this is a team of cheaters and their punishment is not playing in a bowl game and possible NC.  Two, IMO this season was as expected.  We were a 7-5 to 9-3 type team.  We lost to Bama, a good ND team in a close game, Nebraska on the road with our 3rd string QB, and OSU on the road.  We protected our home and beat MSU and NW.  We had a quality season.  We will go to a bowl game, and Denard still has a legitmate shot at the rushing record.  Yes this loss hurts, but when you use your head we are not the sort of dominant team that is likely to beat a good team on the road, especially in a rivalry game.  The question is can we anwser next year when we get them at home again?  We can't let Urban go 2-0 against us.  But, we need to find anwsers in the offensive line and run the ball from our backs.  Then the showdown should be in 2014 we will both likely have pretty great teams.  Lets credit their defense in the second half, be proud of the effort from our team, and look to the future.

Our defense against first down run was very worrying. But otherwise, I think the defense was great today.

Congrats to our fine defense this year.

Hoke & Borges totally blow it & CHOKE!

Run up the middle all 2nd half ... blow a 4th & 3 & a Denard fumble w that garbage.  They couldnt stop Denard outside

Last drive - Denard not in at Rb.

 

Fuck you Ohio, Hoke & Borges  (And I liked Hoke - besides the Bama & Neb games)

Mattison and the D were rock stars....almost 37 minutes on the field!!! Borges blows dead bears and Hoke failed to step up as a head coach and send Borges to the showers. Devin worked hard but did not stand out against a better team! Onto next season.... Like the Notre Dame game....we gave it away.
