Players returning to Ohio State for the 2020 season shouldn’t need a reminder of what the program is striving to accomplish this fall. But just in case it slips their mind, there’s a convenient sign located in the weight room to spark the memory.

That sign contains the score from Ohio State’s Fiesta Bowl loss to Clemson, a 29-23 decision. It’s being used as added motivation as players begin training for another football season. Winter workouts are getting underway, and before too long, spring practice will be in session.

Ohio State strength coach Mickey Marotti confirmed that the sign is hanging in the weight room for everyone to see.

The Buckeyes accomplished quite a bit in 2019, winning a third-straight B1G title and finishing the season with a 13-1 record. But in Columbus, the goal is to win a national championship.

Earlier this offseason, head coach Ryan Day said he wanted players to watch the national title bout between LSU and Clemson with one thought in mind: what are you willing to sacrifice to win it all?

It’s pretty clear that the goal hasn’t changed in Columbus. And the Ohio State players and staff are using every bit of motivation necessary to get back into the College Football Playoff and get their hands on another national title.
