Think of Watson since he’s been drafted. He worker-beed his way through training camp, giving deference to nominal starter Tom Savage. He donated his first game check to three lunch ladies with the Texans who suffered losses in the big Houston flood. He struggled to beat the Bengals in his first start, dueled Tom Brady to a close loss in his second start, then threw 12 touchdown passes in his past three games.
In his last three games, he’s playing to a 118.3 rating, ridiculous for a rookie. But postgame Sunday, what he was Chris Conte Authentic Jersey thinking about was the pick-six he threw to Cleveland cornerback Jason McCourty, even after his fourth straight strong performance. I’m really upset about that pick-six, he said. I was pissed off. I hate turning the ball over. That’s going to stick with me. Music to his coaches’ ears.
For the media and fans, the storyline is irresistible: Ohio State guard Kelsey Mitchell and the Buckeyes possibly get to play in the season-ending showcase in Columbus, Ohio.
Authentic Womens Ryan Quigley Jersey We’ve talked about it. It would be a great thing for our program and this community, Ohio State coach Kevin McGuff said. I don’t want it at the forefront of what we do and talk about on a daily basis, but it is a reminder and kind of a backdrop type of thing, in terms of motivation.
If it happens, it will be in the season marking the 25th anniversary of Ohio State’s last — and only other — Women’s Final Four appearance, which was also led by an Ohio native who was a scoring whiz. That was Katie Smith as a freshman in 1993; her 28 points in the final were outdone only by Texas Tech’s Sheryl Swoopes with 47, as the Buckeyes fell 84-82.
Ohio State at last making a return trip — when playing in the Final Four would require just a few minutes’ drive for the Buckeyes — would seem like things coming full-circle. But that’s a narrative to be applied only after the fact. Ohio State has to make it happen, which is a day-by-day grind.
