Ohio State thumps Notre Dame

The Buckeyes overwelmed the Fighting Irish today in an impressive 34-20 victory. Turnovers and missed field goals made the game closer than it should have been, but there was no doubt at the end of the game as to which team was better.

The Buckeyes showed that they can dominate an opponent with their speed. Ted Ginn lived upto the preseason hype with some amazing plays, and Troy Smith established himself as a Heisman Trophy frontrunner for next season with another big time performance. His ability to elude the rush and throw on the run makes him one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the country.

The game also proved again that a good defense can stop a good offense. Notre Dame’s offense looked unstoppable all season, and they opened with a great drive, but the Buckeye defense shut them down the rest of the way.

Finally, Jim Tressel wins the big one again. He’s 4-1 against Michigan, and now he’s 4-1 in bowl games. Charlie Weis might be a great coach, but right now there are few college coaches who can claim to be in the same class as Jim Tressel.
