INDIANAPOLIS - It wasn't supposed to end like this if you are a Buckeyes fan. All the stars had aligned, the path was clear, the goal was clear and then Saturday night happened. Michigan State jumped out to a 17-point lead and after the Buckeyes scored the next 24 points, the Spartans scored the final 17 points to win it 34-24.
Over the next several days the pundits will break down what went wrong in the game, and there was a lot that went wrong. Senior center Corey Linsley felt that he played a poor game early and by the time the Buckeyes righted things the Spartans were playing with sky-high confidence and it was all over but the crying.
We talked with Linsley after the game to get his thoughts about the loss and how the team will move forward.
