First off, I would like to congratulate USC on running up the score by going for it on 4th down. I mean, that's not a jackass move or anything. And I would also like to congratulate the referees on a well called game. That Hawaiian linebacker's foot wasn't halfway out of bounds or anything.
I'm not going to make excuses. We lost. It is what it is. But I am going to complain about how terrible we played, and how horrible the coaching was.
Why leave Boeckman in the game in the 2nd half? He was terrible, highly ineffective, and just totally beat. What kind of quarterback for the #5 team in the nation runs backwards when the pass rush gets to him? Most high school kids know to step up or scramble. You never run backwards. And his decision making was horrifying at best. He couldn't complete a pass to save his life last night. Tressel could have at least put in Pryor to gain some more experience, if not to attempt to make the game competitive. At least Pryor could get out of the pocket and make something happen, instead of taking a sack or throwing a pick.
Yeah, we missed Chris Wells. But Boeckman was the real problem.
And what about the horrible officiating? Everything was a penalty. Roughing the passer calls were horrible. Holding calls. Everything. And I don't know about you, but I know that the whole college football community seen that linebacker's foot halfway out of bounds when he took it back for a touchdown. Even you USC fans can afford to admit he was out of bounds, no question. And yeah, maybe they would've scored anyways, but good god how much are these refs going to take from Ohio State? They didn't give us a call. I think it's those damn Pac 10 referees that fucked us over.
Oh, and I would also like to congratulate Brent Musberger on being the biggest douche bag in America. Never can he call an Ohio State game fair. Always biased, always talking shit about our team. I can't stand him. He's the worse announcer that has ever called a game, and should be fired. "Oh lets just bash on Ohio State the whole game. Let's talk about how they're the worst team in college football." Shut up Musberger, and rot in hell.
