This is fun. But what if all OT or 1 score game results were flipped? tOSU would be only undefeated remaining.

It's not something that can be quantified with a statistic.

But, for whatever reason, when a game is on the line, some teams just seem to have a knack for making the right play at the right time.

in other words, some teams find a way to win. other teams don't find a way to win - or they find a way to lose.

I don't know if it's something that can be coached or taught. I have a feeling it's more of an innate quality - where you either have it or you don't.

and some teams seem to find it one season, and lose it the next season.

that is a big part of why sports are so much fun.

Wasn't/isn't someone's signature here "mediocre teams lose in excruciating ways", or something like that?

26-14, so still a loss.
Get your facts straight. That's why you'll only ever be Maxy Junior. :)
Must be an aging moment. My bad I keep thinking it was an 8 point loss.
