Poor Urban Meyer. On Saturday night, his Ohio State Buckeyes saw their amazing winning streak and BCS Championship hopes come to an end, as they were defeated by the Michigan State Spartans 34-24 in the Big 10 Championship. A lot of critics have said that the Buckeyes’ 24-game winning streak was the result of a hollow schedule, as OSU’s competition over the past two seasons had been void of any real Top 10-caliber teams, but it was still a marvelous feat by a team that had been playing with a huge chip on its shoulder. But the streak is over now, and Meyer and Ohio State will have to settle for a shot at an Orange Bowl victory over Clemson.
Still, this photo of Meyer eating pizza on a golf cart after Saturday night’s game, captured by USA Today’s George Schroeder, might make you feel bad for the controversial coach. You know, unless you’re the kind of college football fan who loathes him. So I thought that I’d take this opportunity to brighten it up for him and make us all a little happier.
