This Buckeye Nation fan sums it up perfectly. This was supposed to be a pretty exciting matchup between the nationally ranked #2 and #3 teams.

Much was made about the Clemson offense, and that apparently is what Ohio State prepared for. In that regard, they were mildly successful, limiting Clemson to only 31 points. It could have been much, much worse. It was the Clemson defense that silenced the Buckeyes leaving them scoreless, and us fans speechless.

Clemson's rout makes this 31 point loss the widest margin of defeat in OSU coach Urban Meyer's career. The mood in Columbus is quite despondent. Up north in Ann Arbor, arch rival Michigan fans were quick to point out their ability to at least score during a Bowl game.

Heads are gonna roll at OSU this week, the rumor mill already churning about upcoming program changes. Welp.
