Yup, same reason I too still like to pick up an occassional case of Natty. I will always have a soft spot for it

Having seen Burrow play in person down here in Athens and then watching the state championship game on TV I'm very excited to see this kid in Scarlet & Gray

DJ, I'm with you 100% regarding Boyd Crowder's fate. But alas, you never leave Harlan alive...

I've got my same clothes I wore the last two games ready to roll

Good to know I'm not the only one wide awake watching non-stop pregame and getting hyped. Go Bucks!

Same, I'm from central Ohio, have Buckeye alums in my family, and grew up a die-hard Buckeye fan. Loved Athens the first time I visited and decided it was the place for me to be and added the Bobcats as a second team. It was great being around for them beating Georgetown and scUM in the NCAA tourney, going to multiple bowl games, and beating Penn State. Luckily most of my friends down here are also fans of both State and OU.

It's a great place to party for sure. HallOUween and the spring fests always bring in a bunch of visitors looking for debauchery. Always enjoyed it when my friends from OSU came down or when I went up to cbus for the weekend. It's a weird college sports dynamic here though in that there are lots of Ohio State fans and also a very large portion of fiercely loyal bobcat fans that actively root against the bucks.

Another facet of this game that I think will end up being huge will be Cardale's running ability. Watching all these tv analysts breaking down the game you'd think that Cardale was a highly immobile, pocket qb with no threat to run. While not on the level of Brax or JT, I have a feeling that Cardale will surprise a lot of people with his legs, which Bama has struggled with in the past.

Enjoyed the vid. I've seen too many hype videos for the sugar bowl lately that seem to exclusively use clips of last year's team for some reason, so it was great to actually see awesome plays from this years team

I'd like to see Kwon on the field as much as possible during this game. I wonder how Grant would do as a rush end? He's huge and struggles in pass coverage, so I'm curious as to how he would do walked up on the LOS while Kwon played the mike?  Just a thought I've entertained this year

Well this is looking like a total team effort by Cleveland to look shitty. Expected Manziel to have some rookie mistakes but penalties and lack of running game success is really hurting his chances to be effective so far

Great! I've been hoping to see some bama folks show up here. In my experience this site is the best Buckeye forum on the interwebs and I hope that ya'lls can offer some Bama insight! Eleven  Warriors has some great insight into Buckeye Nation and I hope that our new Bama members can contribute some quality insight with regards to the upcoming game!
