Buckeyes exceeded expectations in this game.

Great last drive by Texas.

Going to sleep now, all depressed and stuff.

I thought the Bucks were going to pull this one off.

First the Vikings lose to Philly, then Franken, now this.

Many bad words.

NO cheers, unfortunately.

As a Texas fan I have to say, they got outplayed and still won. Amazing.

But that was a good game.

Texas is a fine team but they barely had what it takes to beat a two-loss OSU squad. Horns are at best number 4 behind Florida, OU and Utah. Throw SoCal into the mix and they fall to five.

OSU scored our last touchdown too fast. We should have eaten up more of the clock. You can’t leave a team like Texas 2 whole minutes to score.

As an OU fan living in Texas, I’d have to agree. But I’m glad a Big 12 team finally won a bowl game...I was beginning to wonder if we were over-rated this year.

Ditto that. As much as i dislike OSU they played a great game and exposed just what a joke Texas is. Texas got lucky. UTah would have killed TEXAS. USC would have...well they would have had to call the game after the 1st quarter if they played USC cuz USC would have killed them. I just hope ColumbASS isn’t burning to the ground.

Not over-rated, but bowl let downs happen frequently to teams that almost get to the National Championship. That and Ole’ Miss is much better than it’s record.

How does that make Texas Number One in the country?

Texas’ team speed was barely better than Ohio State, and we all know of the great team speed of USC.

After this game, there is no doubt that USC is the best team. Even more so if OU beats Florida.

Worst Texas effort of the season, and I saw many of them. Mack Brown would be lucky to out-coach my grandmother, and she's deceased. If he had to coach a team with no more than pretty decent athletes, he'd have to get lucky to go .500 in any season.

Tough loss for OSU.

I have been hurt so many times that I think I may find it very hard to care after tonight. I went into the game expecting the Buckeyes to get blown out, and then I made the mistake of opening my heart and allowing myself to hope...

You misunderstand. To a Texas fan, they ARE Number One until someone beats them in a championship game. Their loss to Texas Tech this season doesn't count in their minds, because, 1) the game was played in Lubbock, 2) Tech won with :01 second left in the game, and 3) after all, it's just Texas Tech and it was a fluke.

So, according to their logic, they are Number One.

They call it tradition. It's really just delusion.

Penn State should rank simply #1 for their fabulous, conservative Republican coach Joe Paterno who at 80, out hustles and out coaches men half his age, over and over and over.

Plus Penn State got robbed ? of an undefeated and likely national championship several years ago (one loss) by the worst ref call in history, when the refs gave ? Iowa > an unearned TD on the final play of the game.... when every camera on the field showed it clearly a mistake... and not even close.

If not mistaken, that was when college began the ‘review’ rule.

In fact, I think such a scenario happened twice... both times causing Penn State to lose its undefeated record.

Paterno deserves a Civilian Congressional medal of honor.

Sorry, USC, Florida, or UTAH would beat Texas. But they did beat Oklahoma, so maybe Texas can end up #4

But I’m glad a Big 12 team finally won a bowl game...

You haven't been paying attention. The much maligned (in Texas) Northern Division of the Big 12 is 3-0 in bowl games. Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas all won. Okla State and Texas Tech lost, Texas won. Oklahoma hasn't played yet. The Big(?)10 or 11 is now 1-6 in bowl games.

That roughing the passer call on OSU was pure BS. It sparked the 3Q for Texas.

If Ohio State had an offense that was as good as their defense the game would not have even been close.

But then I’m an Okie, so I can’t possibly be objective.

OSU scored our last touchdown too fast. We should have eaten up more of the clock. You can’t leave a team like Texas 2 whole minutes to score.

They also should have gone for just a one-point-conversion on their second touchdown. If Ohio had been able to get off a last second field goal, it could have been a game winner if the score were 24-22 rather than a tying score at 24-21.

“Buckeyes exceeded expectations in this game.

Great last drive by Texas. :

NOT GOOD enough for this Buckeye fan. Sick of losing the big games. Offensive play calling horrible until the 4th qtr. I think someone got in Tressels ear and said “hey, last game of the year, let’s open the playbook past page 3”.
19 seconds left and 20 plus yds to go. No need to blitz in that situation plus that db needs to tackle that guy at the ankles and not high.
I want to punch something right now...just sick of this same crap feeling.
