Orange Bowl an emotional game for the Bucks

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - The Buckeyes had their opportunities on Friday night but couldn't overcome some self-inflicted wounds in the Orange Bowl and fell 40-35 to Clemson in front of a national television audience. This was the final game for the senior class and several juniors now have big decisions to make, but those will have to wait as the team has to get over a difficult loss.

"(The) senior class, we just said an emotional good-bye to them," head coach Urban Meyer said after the game. "It is not because they're seniors, it's because of what they have done. I tried to make that perfectly clear. Just because you stay someplace for a couple years doesn't mean you deserve that respect. It's what you did and how you did it."

There really is no offseason when it comes to college football and the coaches will get to the tapes and see what went right and what went wrong but the team won't step foot on a field as a unit until spring football gets underway in a couple of months. It will be a difficult time for those players who are returning in 2014 but the team has a lot to build on too.

"We have a lot to build on and we have some guys who can play," defensive back Doran Grant said. "I'm excited to see them play next season [and] see what they got in the spring. We're going to work at it."

We have more than ten post game videos from the Orange Bowl and have them all here for you in one place so you can get the pulse of the team after a disappointing loss.
