Ohio State 14
Chomped ’em on the grid and on the hardwood! For the second time this year, Florida dominates Ohio State–and this time the Gators take home a national championship. For me, tonight’s game was summarized by Jarvis Moss’s sack of Troy Smith late in the third quarter: untouched, Moss came around the right end and crushed Smith–who never saw it coming.
Who, indeed, saw this coming? As late as tonight’s first quarter, Fox commentators (including Big Ten homer Barry Alvarez) were talking about the “overmatched” and “overrated” Gators and second-guessing the strength of the SEC. Ha, ha, ha!
And I’m happier for nobody more than Chris Leak, who saved his best for last, starting 8 for 8, and coolly dissected the Buckeye defense all night. Go! Gators!
