Just wanted to stop in and congratulate you guys on a 12 - 0 season last year. My fiancee is a Buckeye, grew up in Columbus and is a graduate, so I've kind of adopted the Buckeyes as my 2nd favorite team.
I have OSU shirts and hats, that I wear every Saturday as I scream and yell at the TV during the Buckeye games, and have become a huge fan. Had a few heart attacks last year, as did she, but as a super entertaining season. I think the tackling issues that made us both pull our hair out last year will be addressed and fixed, and you guys SHOULD blow the easy schedule you have to pieces. Do that, and you're in!
I, myself, grew up in Alabama and graduated from UofA. Lifelong Tide fan, and now my girl supports them as well. Like you guys, we have a pretty favorable schedule if we can get past Texas A&M for our 2nd game.
While I cheer for you guys with all of my heart, there is an obvious problem here. Not only would I be forced to cheer against OSU, but there's the issue with my girl as well. One of us, if we play, will be a very sad panda at the end of the night and I just hope it's not me! Up to that point, I'll be doing O-H! I-O! with her each and every Saturday. It'll be a great game if it happens, 2 classic, old school programs going head to head. Hope it happens!
