The chili is on made with some nice fresh deer meet. The spice is burning my nose from the other room.  Jalepeno corn bread to go along and some ice cold beer. What a way to begin a cold blustery game day.

Isn't it funny how we believe we are that powerful and put the blame on ourselves. I felt / feel guilty skirting this topic.

Thank you GB10 for the trip down memory lane. I'm retiring and that was my first jet. Was in Meridian VT 9 in 96 as a student pilot. Loved flying the Buckeye and bragging about the name.

Got just under 100 hours in the T-2, also my first and only flying puke while spinning the damn thing. Will miss her.

My personal thought on this is the offense as a whole is struggling, but everyone is focused on the QB. New OC, new QB coach, new scheme. Timing is everything, pick a QB and stick with it. Sharing reps in practice probably doesn't help.

Thank you for this post, it hit me right in the heart. I have three girls of my own, all under 4. My hats off to you. I am in the process of retiring from the Navy after 20 years. I pushed my girls and mom ahead to get settled in the great state of Ohio while I finish up my tour in VA, just in time for football season. Glad to hear about your going to bed ritual, very similar to ours, its not easy getting three little ones to bed at the same time. Miss my girls!

Kentucky has won only 1 NC since 2000. Of course this year could be 2 and Calipari has been on board for 6 years.

There are a lot of things that have to go your way to win the tournament. Yes, talent, but also who you are playing and some good old fashioned luck at times.

Ohio State can get there with Thad, he gets the recruits and he is a good coach.  I don't think there is a chance this year, however.

I was sitting in HOOTERS bar with a bunch of OSU fans and few Miami fans one block west of the stadium because I was too cheap to pay $150 for a ticket.  I don't remember a whole lot after the game, and the last three quarters and OTs are a little blurry for some reason.

Sounds a lot like the dream I had last night, with a few edits...

All I remember is that the Buckeyes   I were was up big in the 4th with JLAW running wild.  But Mariota she was mounting a heroic comeback and repeatedly sacrificing his her body.  I woke up before I got to the end. (Why do I always wake up before the end?)

Couldn't agree more and here is HS.  I have seen this on many occasions where it looks like its there for the taking.  I've been hoping to see him just take off.  However, I am hoping they aren't in a position in which they need it because of a comfortable lead.

I've had this strange calmness ever since the B1G Championship game as well.  Can't describe it because it is so strange and no normal.  Much of it probably because it was unexpected path we are now on after hearing all year that we were not going to make it to the show.  This is a team of destined for the crown.

Also, wanted to thank everyone in this thread for the laughs.  I love reading this stuff.

Yes, that loss to VT looks/looked bad and it gets a lot of attention from the press, but my feelings on that game are that it may have been the best thing to happen all year.  I'm not sure we would be where we are without such a disappointing loss.  I believe it brought this team together.  I believe it opened the coaches'/players' eyes to our weaknesses.  I could go on, but I will just say it was a blessing in disguise and leave it as such.

My lovely wife of 5 years, brought a dog (Italian Greyhound) into my life.  He welcomed me into the fold by dropping a deuce in my shoe on our very first date.  Needless to say, my wife was quite embarrassed.  The dog on the other hand, was not.  The only saving grace is that he is a small dog, therefore small poops.  That's only the beginning with this dog, but I will spare you my pain.  I should have taken his, not so subtle, hint.

I'm a glass half full type.  First Gallimore to Oklahoma, now Wilkins to Clemson means one thing.  Beckner has filled the spot behind closed doors.  Complete speculation and wishful thinking on my part.
