Wow, I am a buckeye fan now and all my life, but there was something about the grit of the Navy team today that almost had me rooting for the upset which almost happened. It was of course the old David versus Goliath story. The midshipmen having to follow the rules set out for all the future officers against the mega giant OSU and their mega fan base with pro scouts in permanent residence to whisk away the best of the batch after a year or two prepping for the big ten perennial among the front runners. But it turned out okay and the buckeyes survived, barely, to run smack into USC next week, where OSU might indeed be the David against USC the goliath. So it goes in sports.
