|By Marc Lawrence — As many of you know, I’m from Cleveland and also had a major play on Ohio State in their CFB Playoff semifinal loss to Clemson on Saturday. It was hard falling asleep after watching the Tigers walk off the field elated while Buckeye players and fans were absolutely distraught. To outgain Clemson 516-417 in total yards and watch two sinful calls by a SEC referee crew dictate the outcome of the game that denied OSU the opportunity to play in the championship game was hard to swallow. However, as CBS Sports declared, “Blaming the officials for a loss is like eating empty calories. It can feel good at the time, but there’s no value in it. There are so many things that happen throughout the course of a game that determine the outcome. The Buckeyes will just as quickly regret kicking three field goals inside the red zone instead of scoring touchdowns. The self-inflicted wounds (eight penalties, including a costly roughing the kicker call, plus two turnovers) are the types of mistakes that make a team wonder, ‘What if?'” Click here for more on “the game”.|
