  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Braxton Miller, but other Buckeyes are fast approaching..

This might be worse news than Herman leaving.  I am only kinda exaggerating.

Forget the Skull Session if we beat Bama, DJ...the entire 11W server will implode/explode/disintegrate.

I wonder if their biggest differentials came against teams with the highest scoring because they had a bigger number to "chop away" at.  As an extreme example if a team is averaging 10 points per game then the differential after playing Bama is going to be less than 10.  Put another way the higher scoring teams have "more to lose."

I respectfully disagree.  Not even comparing Brax and J.T. (yet), but not only does Brax need to rehab awesomely (which he should) but he somehow needs to throw great and prove his accuracy after almost a year of not throwing the ball once!  My opinion is J.T. Is more accurate and Brax somehow needs to not only overcome injury and time off but also improve.  Uphill battle IMO.  I hope for the best for Brax but I feel he is at a crossroads and needs to consider not being a QB (possibly).

Welcome!  We here in Columbus are going  back and forth on how to feel for this game too.  On the one hand, it's Bama and they good.  On the other, we're coming off a victory where we looked near perfect in every phase of the game, and looked fired up doing it.

How good is your offensive line this year?  Average/decent by Bama standards?  I think our D line is pretty good and it seems Sims is capable of being rattled, so if we can get to him and somehow contain Cooper (some) we have a chance at slowing Bama down some.

Give us some more of your thoughts - we love enemy intel and insights.  As much as I love college ball I just dont' get to watch as much as I'd like, and haven't been able to watch much of Bama this yer.

Drago's has charbrolied oysters in a garlic butter sauce that are RIDICULOUS.  I don't even like seafood and I loved these.  They aren't raw, they're cooked.  There's a couple locations, but I went to the one in the Hilton by the river.

Also, do yourself a favor and go have a po boy at Domilise's.  OMG best sandwhich I have ever had.  My buddy got a shrimp or oyster poboy and I got a roast beef one.  The roast beef one was absolutely out of this world - had gravy, pickles and other awesome stuff on it.  The Manning brothers are well known in this tiny but awesome place.

EDIT: You really, really need to go to Domilise's and have a poboy there.  If you eat nothing else while in NOLA, eat here.  I can't emphasize that enough.  Also, enjoy a Dixie beer - not available in Ohio.  After Katrina, the brewery in NOLA was ruined and relocated to Wisconsin.  But they still ship it to NOLA.  Tasty.

Nice.  I haven't watched Auburn much this year, so good to know.  Isn't there QB a pretty mobile, dual-threat guy though?  Which Cardale isn't necessarily (or maybe he'll just need to be)....

I hear ya Hove, but I would counter with they NEED to hit a home run with this hire.  If they don't another decade of mediocrity could easily be in the cards.  I'm not sure how much recruiting momentum they could gain anyway with so little time (although Urban worked magic in 2011-2012).  They've got 2-3 years of really good recruits on paper - I say build off that and go take your time to get the absolute best possible coach.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

What I'm kinda worried about is...a lot of our success in spreading D's out has been getting the ball outside on the edge.  This has been huge for Ezekiel Elliott especially.  But Bama is renowned for having defensive ends and linebackers that are fast enough to get outside quick enough to make stops.  Just a little wrinkle I thought of - we'll see how it plays out.  Maybe if we had SEC type speed we'd be able to move the ball.

MMan - good to have ya back.  Curious to hear your thoughts on TTUN's coaching possibilities.  You always have good info or insights.  Not related to this thread obviously, but I just feel with all that's going on there's' plenty to discuss both Buckeye and Wolverine.

edit: also, we welcome any and all "wows" and "oohs" and "ahhs" regarding our mutilation of Wisky.

This kinda depresses me...we're losing some very important seniors.
