Grew up near the S&G course over on McCoy Rd. My grandfather was head of Neurology and a surgeon at Riverside Hospital. He knew Woody and would assist the team med wise. Ended up out West in my teens and fell in love with the mountains. Graduated from Park City HS and the University of Utah. I work in technology supporting Gov't accounts. Happily married to a Duck fan and living in Denver with our two sons (who are not Duck fans). GO BUCKS!

1st day of recovery from surgery and the Skully, as per usual, brings a smile to my face. Thanks DJ for your commitment to the Skully and 11W.

One of my favorite quotes from the movie (Crazy french trapper named Del Gue):

I ain't never seen 'em, but my common sense tells me the Andes is foothills, and the Alps is for children to climb! Keep good care of your hair! These here is God's finest scupturings! And there ain't no laws for the brave ones! And there ain't no asylums for the crazy ones! And there ain't no churches, except for this right here! And there ain't no priests excepting the birds. By God, I are a mountain man, and I'll live 'til an arrow or a bullet finds me. And then I'll leave my bones on this great map of the magnificent...

Buckeye Salmon instead of Sockeye Salmon? With all the pressure, hype, and media that these players endure....It's great seeing kids just being kids. Who knows what the future holds but this team will go down as one of my favorites until the day I die.

Sounds like deja vu from the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. Tempe was 90% S&G.

Spoke with a few Miami fans the night before the game.They were nice, just very overconfident. They had selective hearing when it came to me explaining to them that tOSU had an exceptional defense and would keep the game close. It fell on deaf ears.

Flying out a few days later, some crazy, middle-aged Miami fan was dropping F-bombs in the airport gift shop full of Buckeyes. A Buckeye fan with his kids told the guy to tone it down. The guy proceeded to tell him to F*ck off.  Luckily for the Cane fan, security showed up at that moment to save his ass and hauled him away along with his screaming wife. We all cheered. It was awesome.

Landon Collins also got a banged up right shoulder courtesy of Evan Spencer and then 12 Gauge proceeded to plow him over and ding up his left shoulder.

There were some big time hits in that game. Marshall needs a tighter chin strap. The helmet to helmet hit when Zeke concussed the ILB(Ragland) and knocked him out of the game was scary.

I liked the play call.  Urban going for the kill shot.You would think in that situation the corner would bite on the double move and the game is over.  Great discipline by the bama corner. Only problem with the design is that there should have been a check down receiver (TE or RB) in the flat, so if the corner doesnt bite, you dump it off and burn clock.

If the Dline can be disruptive ie - TFLs and getting to Sims, Bucks win. Yeldon and Henry are extremely good RBs but they are downhill runners. Got to stop them before they get going. Bennett and Washington's performance will have a huge impact on the outcome of this game.

I was thinking the same thing.  Plus, Brain knows a thing or two about kicking Bama's ass (see 2009 Sugar Bowl MVP)
