The Ohio State Buckeyes are under some pretty intense scrutiny. It’s hard to imagine how a program that has won so many football games can be the butt of so many barbs. But there it is. That’s what happens when you win the Big Ten, play in the BCS National Championship Game two years in a row, and come away with nothing.
Heavy on the minds of the Buckeyes is the chance to claim the Big ten three consecutice college football seasons. No team has done that before. Yeah, that would be great. But nothing less than a national championship will shut people up. It’s the price of success.
