There were plenty of Ohio State fans who did not like the play calling or really just the play from the Buckeyes against Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl. There were many mistakes made including a fumble and two interceptions, but the worst part of it all was that Ohio State didn’t score a single point.
That brought out the boo birds and the Twitter trolls including former standout quarterback Cardale Jones. He initially got upset when Ohio State’s kicker missed both of his make-able kicks.
And then came the knocks on the play calling:
And then he came to the defense of J.T. Barrett who was just not having a great night. He only had 127 yards and the two picks for the game. And of course, while he did that he also trashed the coaching staff as he has enjoyed doing before.
The 31-0 win for Clemson was the first time that coach Urban Meyer had ever been shut out in a game and was the first time since 1993 that Ohio State had been shut out. And one more crazy stat: it was the first shutout in a bowl game for the Buckeyes since the 1920 Rose Bowl. So you might understand why Jones was pretty upset with some of the play-calling.
