OSU got a gift to get into the playoffs this season. OSU with the same 1 loss was left out in 2015 and 2018 (m)

: a national championship than Urban ever did after 2014. Meyer only made the playoffs once more and lost by a 31-point shutout in the semis, whilst Day lost his two semifinals by a combined 5 points.
Getting close means nothing in the end. Coop got close to beating SCum several times. No one remembers or cares that OSU lost several close games to SCum when Coop was the HC. Just win.
SCum has had several close losses to OSU during the Tressel and Urban era. No one cares that some of the games were close. There is a winner and a loser and it does not matter the score in the end.
