Lament on an Ohio State Loss

I don't even know how to respond to what happened. If the Buckeyes would have only hit 3 or every 10 three-pointers they would be the national champs. But alas a ridiculous cold streak hit and all I am left with is the words of those that have gone before me...

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

The only glimmer of hope from this loss is that Greg Oden might decide that he has unfinished business and might stay for another year, playing every game like he played the last one of his freshman year. Along with the hope of two future top ten classes coming in with plenty of versatile big men. And Florida should be decimated next year. Thankfully.

Well well. Looks as if you got exactly what you cocky, unfriendly, arrogant asshole Buckeye fans deserved. An ass whipping.

"If only we would have hit 3 of every 10 3 pointers..." are you serious? Did you even watch the game? It wasn't even close. From the opening whistle to the final blow, Ohio State was dominated, outclassed, out hustled and generally out played.

I can invision you sitting in your pathetic apartment crying to your sypathetic friends about how "this cold streak has to come to an end"........"we can come back in the second half". Just like the BCS game right?

Your squad was underprepared. You ill wishes toward UF, their fans and players got you exactly what you deserved.

Nobody likes a hater. Your negative comments in your column yesterday put on display just how truly pathetic and hateful you buckeye fans are.

try to write someting with a little analysis or menaningful commentary. Maybe then you will have A reader.

Hope you enjoy this comment, as it is the only one your received so far today.
