Came here in hopes of reading something about the C(h)ris Carter with the Kimbo Slice beard. Slightly disappointed, but it was my own fault. I like watching that guy stuff runs and demolish opponents.

On topic - since Carter's already influential in one of the best feeder high schools in the country, it might be best to just let him "shape minds" down there. He might be reluctant to give up the ESPN gig anyway, especially to come to a place where he'd be under the microscope if the talent doesn't perform as expected. I would love it if he could suit up and give it another go, though.

I really want to dislike Virginia Tech more than I currently can going into this game. These people just seem reasonable. If they don't beat us tomorrow, I could see myself pulling for them in the future, whereas I've never really taken notice before. That KeyPlay website seems like the VT equivalent of 11W (which is meant as high praise), and the banter all week has been respectful. Regardless, go Buckeyes. Make a statement tomorrow.

It seems Michigan had a hard time against the Alcoholics from Cleveland and Chicago. They did have some good years... no names on the backs of the jerseys, obviously.

This is what I'm hoping for. Throughout the Navy game while it was still tight my friends and I were going crazy about the lack of creativity in the playcalling, but once the danger was over, we decided maybe those quick outs and some of the more creative elements we were hoping to see would be better used against VT than Navy. Hopefully that is the true reason. I choose to hope and believe that it is.

Chris Borland out of Wisconsin just got a sack for the 49ers. For me, one of the more shocking plays of last year was when he stood up El Guapo at the goal line. I nearly spilled my beer from the impact. Good to see some B1G guys doing well. Also good to know he won't be around next year.

Hyde looked really solid on that last possession. Too bad they couldn't keep it going.

Comment 24 Aug 2014

It's hard to choose between this and the Torrance Gibson game. It's like choosing Past v. Future. Regardless, it makes me feel good that Present is only six days away.

Wow. A really nice toss and catch there for Dwyer just prior to their touchdown. I'm impressed the WR held on. Good for him.

For some reason that Iowa cover just reminds me of a 1997 Topps card. If not that, I feel like that exact setup could have been used at any time in the past 30 years for Iowa's cover and it would be totally appropriate.

Although I'm not at all confident in it, I'm really pulling hard for an MSU victory over Oregon in the first game of the season. If that were to happen, Oregon could win the conference and the rest of its games by Nicholls State margins and still be left out so long as the Buckeyes take care of business since that would entail OSU beating MSU, who had already beaten Oregon, albeit at the beginning of the season. Regardless, I agree with your reasoning on Oregon generally, given their history and schedule.

Though I realize this is true, part of me is optimistic this will go the way of the Nick Bosa/Bill Brasky thread. 

And he was running in work boots!

I like this kid's style:

1. Commits to OSU, doesn't seek attention.

2. Continues working, gains 23 pounds of muscle in the offseason.

3. ??? [something something TTUN joke]

4. Profit.

Even though we don't hear much about him, that doesn't mean he won't be a scary dude. Looking forward to it.

Thanks, man. I don't know why I decided now was the time. But that thought of becoming Texas was terrifying to me. As things ramp up toward the season (and I get through the bar exam in a couple weeks) I hope to contribute more. Thanks for this.
