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."
