New England wins Super Bowl 49

If there is such a thing as the worst play call in Super Bowl history then it might be when Seattle was on the "you carry it in from here" 1 yard line in the closing seconds of Super Bowl XLIX and instead of handing it to the nearly unstoppable Marshawn Lynch for the win, QB Russell Wilson tossed an interception to New England's Malcolm Butler giving the Patriots a 28 to 24 win.  Matching Hall-of-Fame quarterback Joe Montana on the way to his third Super Bowl MVP honors, New England QB Tom Brady completed 37 of 50 passes for 328 yards.

Pats bury Indy & Seattle sends the Packers packing

The only way for the New England Patriots to take the air completely out of an overwhelming 45-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game was to spend the days which followed mired in scandal.  Patriot Coach Bill Belichick and QB Tom Brady each claimed in separate news conferences that they did not know how 11 of 12 footballs used by the Pats in the championship game were under-inflated in violation of league rules.  Sports-talk radio and television followed up by spending endless hours speculating how the under-inflated footballs were easier for the Pats to toss and catch than the correctly inflated footballs the Colts were using.  In stark contrast to the lop-sided no contest between New England and Indy, the NFC Championship game between Green Bay and Seattle saw the Seahawks, who were down 19-7 with less than 4 minutes remaining, pull off a most unlikely 28-22 overtime win.  The Packers dominated most of the contest, but a botched onside kick reception at mid-field gave QB Russell Wilson (right) and the Seahawks the chance they needed to advance to the Super Bowl.

The Ohio State Buckeyes stun Oregon 42 to 20

Underdogs no more, the Ohio State University Buckeyes became college football's top dog in college football's first ever true national championship.  The Buckeye's earned their way to the big game by clipping Alabama's wings 42 to 35.  Having disposing of collegiate football's number 1 ranked team, the Buckeyes went after Oregon whose fast-paced offense was supposed to be more than OSU Coach Urban Meyer's young squad could handle.  Oregon's Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Marcus Mariota came out burning down yards as usual and scored quickly in the game's opening minutes, but OSU's defense stiffened, three times forcing the Ducks' offense off the field with only three points or none.  The Buckeye offence featured Ezekiel Elliot (right) whose 246 yards and 4 touchdowns fueled OSU's 42 to 20 victory.  The Cinderella story of the night was 3rd string Ohio State Quarterback Cardale Jones' impressive 38 yards rushing, 242 yards passing and 2 touchdowns.  All totaled, OSU racked up 538 yards.  Credited with engineering the Buckeye victory are head coach Meyer and his staff faced with regrouping after losing to injury during the course of the season, their first and second string quarterbacks.

    Big 10 Footnote ..

With Michigan landing football mastermind Jim Harbaugh as head coach, and Urban Meyer's storybook results at Ohio State, can a return to the heady days of old, ala Woody vers Shembechler, be far behind.  Let's hope!
