haha... yeah that Deadspin link about coming out 'flat' is a hoot

"Everyone is hooting and hollering before the game, and the crowd is jazzed, and you feel like Mr. Big Swinging Dick. And then the whistle blows and the balloon deflates. I've seen guys give angry tirades in an attempt to break the spell. I've seen guys run in place on the sideline to reclaim the idea of fluid physical motion. I've heard coaches yell (at me and other guys), time and again, to "get your head in the game," as if we had misplaced our heads in a nearby lockbox and forgotten to claim them prior to taking the field. It rarely worked."

With zero mention of our very own Herman in your post I am curious (in a perverse kind of way) how you would categorise him?  Also, when you say a 'new maize and blue age' you only are considering proven track record 'hugely difficult and expensive' head coach hires.  Is UM still even that attractive a destination?  With Meyer putting a fence of sorts around Ohio, quality recruits aren't getting easier to find.  Not to mention you have to wear piss and blue all the time.  

Nonetheless the fan base at least would solidly get behind Herman (once the obvious top two aren't coming).  I would downvote myself if I saw Herman going to UM (I really really don't see a chance in hell) but feeding their delusional fanbase so they keep putting scarlet and grey colors on their website is just awesome.

'CB' center back?  trying to recall how they used to label positions.  sorry not that old (though my shoulder feels older lately)

pride swolled up watching this and the memories.  proud of these kids.  proud of our coaches.  proud of our QB stable.  proud of Fickel.   proud of our once-maligned defense. and especially happy and proud of Urban who gave the haters something real to hate on... his superiority. 

A year ahead of schedule... imagine that.  This team has come together with a cohesion only the greats in history have.  This is a team of destiny.

This is just the beginning.

This is The Ohio State!!  Proud to be a Buckeye!!

happened by MGOBLOG after leaving the page open following yesterday's links or something (I have never typed in mgoblog on purpose) and out of morbid curiosity about their mental state during their coach searchwaitpanickneejerksuckatbbtoonowtoowtfsearch I was amused/bemused to see their front page has a splash of scarlet and grey as they entertain dreams of scooping Herman.

DJ you now need to take a page out of Herman's book and thank your momma properly!!!

Thanks Mrs. B for sharing your son (and his unique blend of wit, angst and occasional glimpses of compassion) with our slack-jawed, knuckle dusting awesome Buckeye groupies.  Hope you're proud of him!

I had a dream we were up 14-0 in the first quarter after a fake punt run fumble recover in the end zone by our thunder from down under... the dream actually woke me up I was so excited so didn't get to see if we won.  wild.  You heard it here first...

I still feel it is the majority trying to take credit for the actions of the few.  but fair enough, until someone can consistently knock them off their perch SEC can still act cocky.
