Awww, I feel for her, then. For I have come to LOVE the Tide.  Mostly because of the similar historic programs, and similar traditions. We 'get' each other, and that's awesome. Very few schools' fans understand our 'Buckeye Fever' - BamaMike gets it. And I'm grateful.

Back in Jan 2003, I watched with friends (and people I've never met) at the dinner/theater next to Nationwide Arena downtown. It was amazing, and a night I will NEVER forget. Chris & Stefanie Spielman hosted, and proceeds went to her breast cancer fund.  This year, it's being shown on a big screen on south campus.  It's free, which is great, but first come first serve - you better head down now! Otherwise, I didn't see many other options in this article other than your standard sports bar fare: http://www.experiencecolumbus.com/blog/index.php/2015/01/08/the-best-ways-to-cheer-for-the-buckeyes-in-columbus-in-the-national-championship/

I'm really surprised (and not, I suppose) that the Schott isn't broadcasting it - I know they opened it back in 2002 for the overflow from the Michiscum garme. What a night! (altho I was in the stands)

Much love,

What BamaMike "forgot" to mention is that, out of habit, he began his morning in a BAMA t-shirt.  He's adorable.  But yes, he changed this morning, and I couldn't be prouder! #flex #GoBucks

Didn't realize he posted last night, here: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2015/01/47359/my-hat-is-off-to-the-buckeyes#comments

Thanks! But I'm the lucky one. :)

He's been around - but there are a few on our boards who do not realize his perspective and points of view.  I'm sure he was waiting for the game to play out before he posts.

I have no doubt he'll post today - but for now, I'm glad he's sleeping <3

That was incredible. I bet I was screaming as loudly as Tim must've been. :)

Comment 02 Jan 2015

I know it's fun to bash the other fans, and there are more than a few yoo-hoos out there - however, I try to stay away from that, as some of OUR "fans" have been pretty embarrassing in the past. :)  Some other great points in this post, tho!

Well babe,  we KNEW this day would come eventually,  didn't we?  :)

I've written a long post about this a couple times this afternoon,  and deleted them all... because none of them really reflected what I meant. 

I'm glad you've come to love the Buckeyes. I've surely come to love the Tide.  In the end,  we have two tradition-laden, historic programs coming together on the field Jan 1st. So, although I know what we will each be wearing (and screaming), in the end, that's what college football is all about. 

Go Bucks and Roll Tide.  Somewhere,  Woody and the Bear are smiling.

Sorry for your loss, sweetheart.  Just like you love OSU now,  I've come to love the Tide as well.  I did hear Saban say in the past couple of weeks that he "always wanted" to have more of an offense like Lane is known for,  but "had no one able to run it". I like the old way better,  but yes this is giving other teams a chance (for once /giggle). I'm baffled too,  love. 

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Big hugs to you. :) O-H !  And sweet dreams (of better games, better playcalling, etc.)  Love my team, love my school. Our honor defend.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Amen! I heartily approve this post. Especially the last point. :)

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Wait. We shouldn't be frustrated with lackluster coaching decisions? Oh, okay - I read that wrong - we can be frustrated, but we shouldn't be "allowed" to voice that? Wow. 

And I thought this forum was for banter, debate and discussion - including topics pertaining to coaches and their decisions. MY BAD. Call the Gestapo! Or the KGB! Or Hitler's Youth! :)

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I am completely floored by his incompetence.  I thought I'd seen it all when he kept calling the option AGAINST NAVY of all people. But alas, I was wrong.  I saw stuff today that I never thought I'd see as a fan of OSU. Not by OUR coaches, not on OUR field. It was appalling. It's one thing if kids don't bring their game, it happens. It's tough when you don't prepare the players properly as well. But to be SCHOOLED and look like (as coaches) you're actually purposely throwing the game with your horrible playcalling? It completely boggles the mind.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

with the recruiting classes we've had? and the HIGHLY paid coaching? i really have no idea. i'm dumbfounded.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Oh my - wow - okay. Stop with the crazy-girl-in-pigtails-and-in-seventh-grade exclamation points please. Second, you say you hardly ever post...but do you ever READ this website? LOADS of people who are calm, objective, intelligent observers of the game. Please stop generalizing and meet some of them, hrmmm? It's not 99 percent who are clueless. 

Yes we love our team - we're FANS after all. But spend a little time with those of us who listen, discuss, and debate thoughtfully for once. Yes, tonight was pathetic. Playcalling, coaches AND execution. But look around, "99 percent" of us are saying that. Okay?

So, go take out your Hello Kitty barrettes, lose the exclamation key on your keyboard, and join the intelligent discussion. Ignore the rest.
