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

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

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.

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.

i agree - unfortunately - they are Coach Meyer's responsibility. i lay a LOT of blame on Herman tonite - the brainy wonder kid (supposedly). but yes, overall, most everyone was ill-prepared.  gotta say - JT came to play - i was proud of him - but god, being behind that line has to be uncomfortable as all hell. he kept his head well.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I love my team. So much. My school. 

I gotta say - your quote "I can take a loss.  What I can't take is such an awful use of talent." is PERFECT, and SPOT ON.

I'm blown away by that. Horrific playcalling, coaching and lack of preparation. Dumbfounded.

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Me three!  Brax is amazing - but even he would've struggled behind this line. No line? You can't throw, you can't run - and it's very very hard to score. Recipe for disaster.

(I like Barrett - young QB, but doing VERY well - unfortunately, his "receivers" are making him look way worse than he is)

Comment 07 Sep 2014

I'm sorry you think that. I beg to differ. All players make mistakes - sometimes multiple ones in a game. But EVERY time? (but once) - when you are obviously the 'go to' guy, by the estimation of the OC's calls? No. At that point, two things are wrong. One, you're NOT a good player (because you should be able to shake it off during SOME point of a game - and catch SOMETHING that is thrown into your chest), and two, your OC failed you by continuing to call plays to you, even though you were having the worst night ever.  Sadly, poor player (or performance) - and even worse coaching.
