  • SPORTS MOMENT: So many come to mind. Probably my favorite is the 1992 National Championship game where everyone said that Alabama didn't even belong on the same field as Miami, much less in the Championship game. 34 - 13. Best play in the game was one that didn't even count when Teague ran down that receiver and took the ball away from him from behind. Penalty nixed the play, but it was incredible!

    Holding the vaunted Miami offense to 6 rushing yards, not counting the 42 they got on the final drive of the game, was also pretty sweet :)

I like your enthusiasm, but I'm not so sure Alabama will be there to play OSU.  Our QB situation scares the bejesus out of me, and I'm just hoping the kid from FSU is the answer.  So many holes to fill, I'm pretty nervous about the upcoming year.  The only ray of hope is that our schedule is easy again this year, so there's a shot.  I hope to see both Alabama and tOSU do well, I just have higher hopes for the Buckeyes than I do for my Crimson Tide.

This is some of the worst play calling I've seen in quite some time.  I'm loving the fact that Baylor was held to 3 points in the first quarter when they average 24 (23.5).

I was at that game in 2009. Thinking about it, even 4 years later, and I still want to throw up.  I swear to GOD, that game took 10 years off my life.

Having not grown up in Oho, attended tOSU, as well as being an extremely new fan, I wasn't familiar with Dom.  I saw the story on Bleacher Report, and just watched the video a few minutes ago.

WOW.  Amazing video, super classy and genuine move by these players.  Although I'm a newly minted Buckeye fan, I'm incredibly proud to call myself a fan after watching this.  Well done, Buckeyes, well done.

It's definitely pleasant to see!  The defender took the correct angle... to tackle a normal "fast" person.  Unfortunately, he's a faster than normal fast and was a step ahead.  Running the ball, good blocking, great field of vision.  I'm a fan already.

I love how pick out what they want and say it was the quote.  Here is the whole thing:

"How well would they have done if they played the six (SEC) teams ranked in the Top 10?” Saban asked. “Would they beat them all? Would they beat three of them? And I think they have a really good team and Urban (Meyer) is a great coach. I’m not questioning any of that. I’m just saying that’s where strength of schedule and who you play don’t get sort of accounted for quite equally.”

All that being said, I hope you guys continue the success you had last year.  I enjoy seeing classic, old school powerhouse teams come back to the place they have earned.  (Except Michigan, Notre Dame, and USC... I hate all 3 of them)  My fiancee is a Buckeye, and I've adopted them as my 2nd favorite team, only behind Alabama as that's where I grew up and went to college.  I watch them each and every week, cheer them on and wear my Buckeye apparel while I do it.  

I'd love to see an Alabama vs Ohio State NC game.  Well, it'd be a classic game with classic teams, and it's always a good game when it's Saban v Meyer.  It'll be a rough time for me, since my girl is a Buckeye.  One of us is going to be VERY sad at the end of the game, I'm just hoping it's not me.

Roll Tide.  
Go Bucks.
