The Ohio State’s Urban Meyer Wins another Championship. This is likely to fuel the rivalry between Urban Meyer and Jim Harbaugh.
This was the first time that I have ever rooted for the Ohio State Buckeyes In the first college championship game against the Oregon Ducks. It’s been decades that I’ve rooted against that team from Ohio, and I mean decades. Well things changed this past year. First, the NCAA created a college championship football game, and the team from Ohio is in the Big Ten. Second, at the beginning of the college football season, the Big Ten teams received absolutely no respect. In fact, the predictions were that no Big Ten team was good enough to be in that top four playoff ranking.
Then, during the season the Ohio State Buckeyes lost their first game of the season, and were considered out of it. Prior, they lost their first string quarterback who was considered Heisman potential. Then, Ohio State took care of Michigan State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Alabama in succession. Urban Meyer the Ohio State coach did a remarkable job with his young players, especially Cardale Jones and Ezekiel Elliott.
The Buckeyes win against a good Oregon team was indeed impressive. Their offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage, and their defense held the Ducks to a mere 20 points. The Oregon team failed to score points, in the red zone, and their fate was sealed.
In thinking about the 2015 football season, it’s clear that Coach Jim Harbaugh has his work cut out for him. We know Harbaugh is a terrific football coach and he’s assembling a good, solid coaching staff. Will he have the players to compete against the Buckeyes In 2015? With his hiring, Michigan is attracting many more recruits. Hopefully, he can start building so Michigan can have a br
ight future. I don’t expect that he’ll create miracles, but I do expect Wolverines will be good this year.
Congratulations go to Urban Meyer’s Ohio State Buckeyes. They dominated and were clearly the better team, on January 12, 2015.
Go Blue Go!
