Clemson destroyed Ohio State 31-0 in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl last season on the Tigers' road to their second National Championship in school's history.

The shutout loss by Urban Meyer was shocking to the elite coach as it was his first of his career in his 194th game. To make matters worse, Ohio State had never been shutout in a bowl game until the Tigers embarrassed them on that memorable night.

"We kind of let that one go," Meyer said during Big Ten Media Days according to Cleveland.com. "We've been known in the past to use different forms of motivation, a loss here or there. That ship has sailed. It's gone. We have not addressed it. Professionally, it changed how we do some business on offense, but we're moving forward."

Since that game, Ohio State has hired a new offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson that they hope will upstart their offensive woes that transpired during the Clemson game.

The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Meyer and his Ohio State team need to discuss this embarrassing shutout loss so they can accept it and move forward to a successful 2017 season.
