Quietly having a great year, Go Hockey Bucks! I haven't been to a game yet, but intend to go next home series, always a good time.

How they stack up, Peppers v. Hooker:

J. Peppers, Michigan        72 Total Tackles, 1 Int, 4 sacks, 16 TFL, Defensive TD's=ZERO

Malik Hooker Ohio State   67 Total Tackles, 6 Int, 0 sacks, 1 TFL, 4 Pass-Break Ups, Defensive TD's= Three

Obviously, they are both stat sheet stuffers, but the 3-TD's has to be the tie-breaker.

Peppers winning "best" anything as it pertains to defense is definitely not legit. He is a great athlete, and good defender, but as you all mentioned, not even the best defender on his own team. I would give DPY to Charlton or Lewis before Peppers...c'mon man! Not to mention the Hooker or Watt arguments. Hooker didn't have the pre-season hype that Peppers had, and that is the whole story right there.

I'd go with Smith over Barrett too, but I think his struggles this year are related more to the lack of WR development & some bad nights at the office from the O-line, than his own mistakes. And although I am not pounding the "fire Beck" drum, it is pretty easy to see that Barrett's development has regressed or at lest plateaued since Herman left.

I don't have much planned Saturday, so I will watch them all and experiment with the back log of Situational Bourbon offerings I have neglected for far too long...

Go Chaos!

DAMMIT! I was just editing this to send to my sniffling skunkbear friends....oh well, this works just as well in a more complete & general statement:

Play better than having to rely on a 4th quarter whistle to a 19-point underdog, IMO

This is so true. It works on any level. I used a version of this when I coached herded 12 drunken fools during my adult softball days..."if you leave the outcome of a game up to some dude* who is getting paid $10 to umpire, and thinking about how much porn he is gonna watch during his 3rd shift job at Speedway rather than the game itself, then you deserve to lose. 

* My apologies to anyone who did or does ump rec league 'anything' and does a good job, but you are certainly in the minority.

Love Will Allen. He was never given his proper credence on that championship run, and I don't think he cares one iota. I have crossed paths with him a few times over the years, and he is everything we want our Buckeyes to become on & off the field.

I hope E$PN has taken accountability on this, and made amends with Mr. Allen.

He definitely doesn't like contact. Especially this year with $$ on the line.
