January 12, 2015: A gr8t night for Buckeye Nation.
It was a result 12 years in the making that was an absolute dream for the fans, players and coaches for The Ohio State Buckeyes football team. The last national title win was back in January 2003 against the explosively fast, electric and seemingly unbeatable Miami Hurricanes. Interestingly, both of Ohio State’s last two national championships were not-so-subtly underscored by notions by the “experts” that we don’t belong, aren’t fast or talented enough. The Oregon Ducks (and Alabama Crimson Tide) were each a Goliath in their own right in 2014.
And yet, the video below is The reality:
The journey to becoming the best damn team in the land for the 8th time was historically improbable, as the Buckeyes were not guided by their Heisman-caliber QB in Braxton Miller, but first by their backup J.T. Barrett and then by their 3rd string quarterback Cardale Jones. They were, by all accounts, a year early in their return as the kings of college football. But before the 2015 season starts, this past season will not soon be forgotten.
