You are right Buckeyevet I did feel that I could express that because of how close Buckeye Nation is.. Especially on eleven warriors. I've only been a member of this site for a year or so but I have seen others tell some of their personal stories on this site and I've truly come to realize how close we all are, not just as Ohio State fans but as a Brotherhood, a Sisterhood, and as a family.

I had almost the exact same experience you had Buckeyesouth with my 12 year old son Adrian who is mildly autistic. I also live in the south in Louisiana (to be near my wifes family). Although I am a lifelong Buckeye fan my son never took any interest in the Buckeyes before. He and I did go see the Illinois game at Buffalo Wild Wings this year because I couldn't get it on television and I talked him into going with me. He had a good time but I wouldn't say a great time. On Monday night he decided to watch the game with me in my den because he could see how excited I was about the game. By the end of the first half he was screaming and hollering whenever the Buckeyes did something good or something bad. When the game ended with a Buckeye victory Adrian was in tears and so was I but for a different reason. Ever since Monday night Adrian and I have been transforming his game room to be decorated in Buckeye gear, such as a Buckeye flag, Buckeye pictures, a small replica of Ohio Stadium, hats, t-shirts and other things I've collected through the years, all per his request. I was already 40 years old when my wife and I had Adrian, our only child, and I am 52 now. I suffer from a heart condition that will require me to have a heart transplant in the near future. Due to other health issues the chances of me getting a heart for transplant are pretty slim. So unless the Buckeyes repeat next year this is likely the last National Championship I will ever see my beloved Buckeyes win. I now consider my son a full member of Buckeye Nation and watching the game Monday night with my son was one of the happiest times of my life right up there with the day he was born. It is something I will never forget and I hope he won't either. I'm not sure why I poured all this out on this comments strig except Buckeyesouth's comment put it into perspective for me. Thanks for listening Buckeye Nation....and we have a new member my son Adrian Campbell.

I as much as any fan of a northern football team I would love to see bowl games up north but there is a simple reason why all the bowl games are down south or out west. Fans don't want to go to bowl sites that are freezing cold and covered in snow. People want to get out and party with other fans, lay on the beach, or see the sights.So as much as we would like to have bowl games up north it's not going to happen because people spend a lot of money to go to bowl games and it is a lot more fun to do that in a warm climate.

Even though you will already know the score.....BTN is replaying the game at 3:30pm EST on Monday 11/17. FWIW

I'm right there with you TxsBUCKEYE. I live in NE Louisiana and I won't get it either. I guess I will have to try and find a sports bar here that has ESPN gameplan. The Bucks game is on channel 788 on Directv (gameplan)

I for one find your post completely out of bounds for this article comment string and out of bounds for 11W as a whole.

I hate SCum as much as anybody but to associate the horrific terrorism committed by ISIS terrorist in the implied way you do to TSUN is completely over the top and frankly offensive even to this 40+ year Buckeye Fanatic.

If I misinterpreted it somehow, then I apologize.

IMHO, the first 2 were simply that Bell and Apple got beat while the 3rd one was more scheme. It seemed to me Grant was expecting safety help on that one, so maybe it was a miscommunication. Though I have only watched the game once thus far and might see something different after watching it closer the next time.

I think UFM pulling the corners back had to do more with them simply getting beat than with the scheme. The DB's have the talent to play press man...they just didn't do it well on those plays.

Hubbard was moved back to defense from TE at the beginning of fall camp. So I'm not sure how much it had to do with Heuerman's health improving over the last few weeks. Meyer has repeatedly said that Jeff's foot (stress fracture) will only get better with long term rest, He will have problems with it all year but the question is how much of a problem it will be.
