Miami Thoughts, A Day Removed

Some random thoughts about the Miami game and the tailgating scene. Jason and I took in the game from section 17A so we had a great view of the action.  The Miami fans were "interesting".  Saw a few Robbery in the Desert t-shirts.   Inside the stadium they were pr...

A few things Miami fans wish were never said.

When reading pre-game jib-jab from Oregon fans in the weeks before the 2010 Rose Bowl, I started to copy and paste the bold (most of the time arrogant) statements I heard just for fun to look back at after the game. Well, I didn't expect to do so for the Miami game, but a few fans just bl...

Observations from 26B

I'm currently waiting in the Columbus airport to head back to Athens today, so it's a good time to both revel in victory amidst numerous U fans (who've all switched to Miami Dolphins jerseys - good to have a back up) and analyze our strengths and weaknesses so that we might be able to...

Game Day things to Remember

OK Buckeye Nation - It is finally here.  And on this most fine Saturday in September I wanted to remind all Buckeye fans of a few key points as you attend, watch or hang around the game this afternoon. 1. As we have learned this week, The "U" invented swagger.  Not quite o...

Can't eat in peace.

Just left Katzinger's Deli. Place completely over run by Miami(FL) fans walking down from the downtown hotels. Made the line way too long for 2pm on a school day. At least they waited until I was leaving to start wooting and getting their swagger on. I am quite surprised that they were ab...

Swagger In, Stumble Out – A Miami Preview

More shameless self promotion.  (Linked to Miami fans think OhioStatestole their title thanks to a bogus PI by a renegade referee.  OhioStatefans, on the other hand, have had their hands full cheering for their team on the way to other National Champi...

Not a rivalry

  Throughout the offseason and even more this week we are reading & hearing all about the so called rivalry and intensity between OSU and Miami.  Did I miss something or is this just pure media hype?  I know, rhetorical question... Truth be told, the national championsh...

Let's Remember...

I’m sure like me, everywhere you read about the ’02 championship game you see references to “the Call”.  You will hear the so called experts call this the greatest college football game ever and yet in the same breath bring the whole game down to the pass interference...

Perspective from the BSU-VT Game

I was at the BSU-VT game.  I have some relatives from Idaho who travel to big games, and they scored us some sweet seats in the 100 section near the VT end zone.  Their seats were in the 200 section on the Bronco side of the 50 yard line.  Given all the claptrap about BSU and my ow...

Eight years of hate.

Raul sat quietly in the dark, his only companions being a half empty bottle of cheap rum and lingering hate. The rum was his childhood friend from Cuba and the hatred was an eight year-old being that came in the form of late flags and silver helmets. “I hate Ohio State,” he ...

Can not wait until Saturday

What a great Saturday for Big Ten college football... ND will play michigan of course, but starting at 3:40, you can flip on ESPN and ride approximately 7 hours of The Buckeyes vs. "The U" followed by #1 'Bama vs. PSU and their true fresh QB.  There are several other go...

NFL Talent: A Look at the Big Ten

[Ed: Bumped because of the density of quality stats. And because it's almost time to start handing out Houndies.] The NFL preseason just finished and I found myself flipping the channel around to see how former Buckeyes were doing.  Since many of the lower profile players switch team...

Mini-Rant towards ESPN/Gene Smith

Why the hell is College Gameday going to Tuscaloosa? Seriously, Penn State is going to get whomped in all 3 quarters by 'Bama's first team. And then get whomped in the 4th by Bama's 2nd and 3rd team. What a waste of mascot head picking, when you could have at least been at com...

The View From 14C (Marshall)

Wow!  The single biggest thing I was looking for was answered.  TP was stepping into his throws and coming over the top pretty consistently.  Even hurried throws looked pretty good, although I missed seeing his form on the first poor throw which hit Saine(?) in the foot.  ...
