Is this working for anyone else with an iPad?

I almost wish I was born with the DNA to feel sorry for our opponents.... If this team can stay focused, remove the off the field distractions, and produce the leadership the coaches are asking for...  It might be a season to remember!

Fantastic montage, really well done!  Washington looks SCARY.  Vrable looks like he could still suit up and play.  The hype around Wilson is exciting, but hope he stays humble and doesn't get a big head.  I hope all of these kids demonstrate good character, get their degree, and reach their full potential on the field.

I like the buckeye leafs on the back of the jersey, cool subtle improvement

Like them too! Let's hope they have to make a subtle change next year to make room for an eighth leaf...

So...I've always wondered since Shazier arrived...Does he have Alopecia (no hair on head) or does he shave his eyebrows? Either way he's mean looking so I hope he doesn't read this and get mad!
And Vonn Bell is already diesel, good lord...

Thank you, kind sir. I figured but thought it might possibly be a fashion statement. (glad its not)

Before I knew what Alopecia was, I just assumed that he shaved his eyebrows for speed. And just watching him play, I thought my theory made sense.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Damn. Rod Smith and Von Bell look huge. 
Great pics staff. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Gonna be great having an NFL Pro Bowler out there!

Even if I knew very little about football, about Ohio State, I'd still be impressed. Wow.

But since I am familiar with both.....WOW.

Great pictures. These have to be some of the most cut players I remember. All of them are huge. Micky has been very busy. I'm so glad I'm a Buckeye. I see great things happening for a long time! I couldn't be more pleased. Total bliss. Thanks TOSU!

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

I'm sorry but the transformation of Vonn Bell within just a few months is incredible.

Great pics Walt. Thanks for sharing. I am beyond excited for this season to start. Go Bucks!

Agree, these pics are great. One can really get a sense of the players' personalities with the way you've captured them. 
Kenny G makes me laugh, Shazier scares me, and then Braxton makes me feel like everything's gonna be alright, because he's got this.

Outstanding pics!  This just gets me more pumped up for the season to start.  I should be getting the tickets to the Buffalo game soon.  I can't wait to make the trip back up to the Great State of Ohio for the game!!!
Go Bucks!!

I remember feeling that way when Troy and TGinn were out there like it was a running joke 'we got this...'
Oddly that feeling is way stronger now for an unproven crew.
