Before the game on Saturday, I said on our pregame Facebook Live that this was going to be a bit like golfing for Ohio State. They wouldn’t necessarily be competing against Miami (OH), but rather they’d be competing against the course. They would be competing against a standard. Early on, they were falling short of that standard. About midway through…
Ohio State scored 42 points in the second quarter of Saturday’s 76-5 win over the Miami RedHawks. The carnage was indescribable. Actually, it was very describable. Amazing. Ridiculous. Impressive. Cheeky. It all works. I’m going to assume this is the first 76-5 score in Buckeye football history. Justin Fields was once again very good.
There is good and bad in every game. Some games have more good than bad, and some games have more bad than good. And some games begin with an opponent’s safety and a field goal followed by a whole bunch of revenge. This feature is about acknowledging both the bad and good, or whichever stood out to us most.
One doesn’t simply “make prediction.” It takes hours of study and, in my experience, even more hours of procrastination. These things don’t “just happen.” They come from somewhere deep and it requires soul searching usually reserved for much more serious matters, which is why only 17 of us in the world are able to do this.
