Congratulations on the victory on Saturday. Obviously, it didn't go my way on Saturday and I'll be angry at some of the coaching decisions/play calls in the second half, but the better team won.
Some takeaways from my visit to Ohio Stadium:
-Even in enemy territory, the Shoe is something special all football fans should be a part of
-I was hardly heckled; in fact, pre game I was greeted by 3 or 4 Buckeye fans that talked football and welcomed me and wished me an enjoyable visit. I did get several strange looks at the Skull session and the team walk into St. John's; Zach Boren, Fickell, Vrabel, and many other Buckeyes gave me a stern stare of hatred (it was great, even though I bit my tongue).
-Ohio Stadium is extremely loud. Anyone that says differently is a moron. Sure there were some hush moments, but when the team needed them, they were intimidating
-It was pretty damn cold
-I was a little disappointed with TBDBITL and the Fantasia themed half-time show after seeing the video-game themed show; I mean, they're still better than Michigan's band, but it didn't woo me
-Carlos Hyde could not be stopped and should've seen 10-15 more touches in the second-half, alone
-It was nice only having an hour drive after a game, for once
-I wish the back and forth from the first half would've spilled over to the second half, but it was a pretty good game, despite the result
OSU should be ranked #2 in the AP, at least for now, even though that is about the worst case scenario #1 and #2 combo in the history of existence for a Michigan fan.
OSU could easily stroll into the Big House at 11-0 next season and will be heavy favorites vs a young Michigan team...I hope to be there and hope many of you will make the trip to Ann Arbor, especially if you've never been.
