For me, the Ohio State spring game was a much-anticipated event. I admit it: I’m football starved. How bad? I even watched some USFL action. The Buckeyes’ glorified scrimmage could never have met my hopes and expectations, but it did provide some real highlights, along with some let downs.
The first bonus I got was when I turned on the Big Ten Network about 20 minutes early and caught the last quarter or so of the Rose Bowl – yes, this past Rose Bowl. I’ll tell you, it’s easier sledding to sit back and watch the game when you know that the Bucks are going to pull it out in the end.
