Is this rubbing salt in the wound? Or, a testament to the Buckeyes' coach's devotion?
After Ohio State's heartbreaking loss, which snapped the nation's longest active winning streak, to the Michigan State Spartans, a photo of coach Urban Meyer eating pizza alone went wild on the web.
Often caustic and biting, even Deadspin.com said , "Oh man, this is sad."
USA Today's For the Win sports blog included a gif of Homer Simpson melting into a pizza and described it as Urban Meyer drowning "his sorrows in the warm, dependable embrace of a personal-sized Papa John's pizza."
