LMAO 'cause I have been in the Navy over 18 years, stationed in San Diego and Norfolk, and have been to all kinds of "sketchy" places...I still think the part of Columbus I lived in and hung out in were way tougher...to put it bluntly, I have had more guns pointed at me in Columbus then my entire time in the Navy.
I say this on my way from Baltimore to Newport News...
Awesome pic, thanks for sharing!
I think the last 2 games I have seen were the Orange Bowl and Penn St, so it kinda sucks right now for me.
All in all I am just pretty miserable, and I am glad I have a place to vent. All the Buckeye fans and big ten fans are bummed around here today.
Ok. I will agree with 98 msu, that hurt a lot; 05 texas and psu were winnable, and came down to the wire; 08 usc, if you didn't see that coming after the ohio game a week before, well I don't know what to say. 08 psu and 08 texas were tough losses; 09 usc we got robbed, 10 wisc we got bushwhacked but almost came back, and 13 msu was rough.
This times a million; the conference as a whole looks like a bag of ass. I had to explain to a buddy of mine that we need to win all these games as a conference for any of us look good.
I think the only time Is felt worse about a loss were after the debacle in the desert, and 95 vs scUM.
FYI for all you Veterans who didn't retire or aren't near an exchange, they all carry a ton of both Nike and Under Armour PT gear that is USN/USMC/USA/USAF/USCG branded.
Obviously there are a ton of VA Tech fans were I live, so I see them all over. I do remember thinking of them as a small time program about 13 years ago (the BCS game being a blip) and trying to buy tickets mid-season. Boy was that dumb!
This! My Father in law's GF got sh*tfaced drunk once after a trip to Italy while showing us pictures, she decided to give us a math lesson on how time zones worked. Even the kids in the family were like "DUH!"
As my brother in law (also Navy) put it 12PM + 5 hrs makes it 5PM, and (her) + 10 drinks makes us all idiots.
I kind of agree, I am kind of conflicted...on one hand, they did give him a shot and he signed a contract, on the other he has outplayed his contract and they will not hesitate to cut him when he outlives his usefulness...
Wisky, SMDH! McEvoy just started chucking the ball up for grabs, but I would argue that there were 2 blatant defensive holding calls in the second half that shoud've been called on LSU...funny because the same play got called 3 times on Ok State's DB...
They are pretty nice! The belt buckle is an awesome detail.
Go Bucks! I was recently stationed with one of the Lineman from the Academy who played in that game, class act, great Officer.
Mike Doss would be the cat's pajamas.
Thank you...I had some dust in my eye as I typed.
@Jonathon Wells if you are reading this:
Thanks for a hell of a game vs. scUM. My daughter had just turned 1, and my wife went out shopping leaving the 2 of us at home. I parked her walker next to me so she could watch her first version of "The Game". We ate so many snacks (me: wings, her: Gerber Wagon Wheels) that we couldn't eat dinner...I had a blast and you guys finally broke through, and she saw her first W vs scUM. (I may be a little crazy, as I woke her up as the final seconds ticked off the clock vs Miami so she could see us win a National Title the next season)...she is almost 14, and she still brings up that time vs scUM....an awesome memory, thanks!
Thank you a million times for this, unfortunately I am on deployment and can't make it...I really wanted to go to this game!
Thank you for the link; is it 1 ticket per vet? (As in,no families?).
