I really enjoyed it. I will say, though, as a devout 11w reader there wasn't a whole lot of new info. The best stuff is from the interviews that were done with key players and coaches. Plenty of good quotes. I wish there was more about off-field stuff in each big game (what was locker room like before or at halftime of B1G championship game, sugar bowl, national championship, etc...), instead of game recap type stuff. I know that if people read it years later, or aren't big Ohio State fans, they may find the game description stuff interesting (and will need it for context) but most of us could write that stuff from memory by now. Really enjoyed it overall, though, definitely recommend it. Just nitpicking.

I would've thought it was easy for you, cause chicks dig the furball.

Man, DJ is the coolest. I heard this one time, he got all the way to second base with this girl. She's from Canada, so I never met her, but she sure sounds hot.

Totally understandable position. I think it's a tough line to walk, and I'd rather he veer on the side of being too "objective." I feel he is a better ambassador for the University and the state that way. We have more than enough outwardly passionate fans to let the world know we're coming.

If you wanna know what kinda Buckeye Herbie is, read his forward in Bill Rabinowitz's new book THE CHASE. He talks about going silent in the broadcast of the national championship game because he was so choked up. That guy bleeds Scarlet and Gray, and he deserves better from our fanbase. On air, he is a professional. Would you rather have a laughable homer like Desmond Howard representing your school? Every other second of his life, he is a diehard Buckeye fan, and he probably even reads these boards. We love ya, Herbie!

Yeah, I think mentioning it could mean it will be used as a fake. Imagine Braxton taking a few steps backward at the start of a play and the DB flying towards him thinking screen/double pass, and then Braxton taking off. His acceleration from a standstill is world class.

If you're interested in expanding out from Ohio State podcasts to podcasts on college football in general, I really like The Shutdown Fullcast by for ridiculous comedy stuff, and The Solid Verbal is, well, solid too.

I can see Charlie Strong being an Untouchables fan: "They bring an offense, you bring a defense. They put of your guys on a poster, you put one of theirs in the morgue. THAT'S the Longhorn way!"

I just tried to do some rough math on that. I think the SEC had 1 team more than the B1G from 1997-2010 (14 seasons) and then they had the same number in 2011, then the SEC had two more teams in 2012. So I come up with a total of 16 extra team-seasons worth of players. 

I can't see the numbers for certain, but if the B1G is showing 530 draft picks there, that's 15 seasons of 11 teams, and 1 season of 12 teams. That's 177 total team-seasons. 530 picks divided by 177 is 3 draft picks per team-season. So those 16 extra team-seasons the SEC had for their data would add another 48 picks on average to the B1G. Which makes their differences pretty negligible, but would still have the SEC with 40 more picks per team over that time.

But if this is just based on the draft, then the 2 team difference in 2012 wouldn't count, because that would be the 2013 draft, and that would mean 6 fewer draft picks "added" for the B1G. So instead of adding 48 picks to even out the teams, it would be 42.

I'm hoping we can get the Broooooooooooklyn chant going after a TD at the Hawaii game. One key is not to speed it up (we've all ruined the airball chant by speeding it up). 

If 100k people chant this, NY will officially belong to the Buckeyes.

Good call. I love my 11w merch, happy to get more. I mentioned elsewhere, crashes are an understandable biproduct of free, independent, high-demand content. #staycrashin

The thing about the improvement metric, is that it can be read two ways. Those two teams showed historic "improvement" because they both had TERRIBLE early season losses (statistically, with hindsight, the VT loss was terrible). Also, the BCS era teams have a better chance of a higher ELO at the end of the season because they played #1 or #2 team to finish season, teams before the BCS didn't always have that opportunity. Playoff champions have yet another opportunity to make a stastical leap because of the extra game against a top 4 team. Urban is obviously one of the best coaches ever, just pointing some things out.
