Hey I'm a Buckeye from Columbus out in Salt Lake. There's some weirdness to it, but it's a pretty great place. I'd love to see the Utes do well since Ohio State's out...and don't forget they are the first ones to take on Hairball here!
I was grumpy because it should be the weekend already, but Saban's disappointed grump face somehow made mine better.
I was in NOLA and Dallas and there was something just oh so satisfying and electric about beating Bama in their own backyard after all these years. Emotionally, that's my number one. For pride in years to come, taking the title is the big cheese.
"and when you see something like that happen, you have to take a step back and wonder, well, who can’t they beat when they’re functioning on all cylinders."
No one. Awesome.
I've never been to a losing game...and I was at The Game, New Orleans, and Dallas...you should buy me tickets. ;)
That's what I've been relying on. Even have the "THE" hat. Bumps me up to a solid four.
Exactly. *Sends four hours later*
Hey, I texted my friends watching at home while at the bowl/NC. Doesn't mean I missed the game!
I just said the other day that if I ever have kids, I'm scheduling their births for off-season.
I want to thank you for this. I saw this this morning at seven and have been periodically laughing about this throughout the day.
In 2001/2, I was in middle school. 2006 and 2007 are when I started tuning in, when my parents went to both NC and came back with nothing. I still thought we were called the Big Ten because we were always top ten ranked. Then I left for college and all my passionate hell broke loose. I got a lot of shit for it for years out here in Utah. Then the 2011 shit show was rough. Even with Urban, there are a lot of mixed feelings on it and I stuck to. So, this year, and my first year of teaching with eleven year olds who like to give you a LOT of shit, was such an amazing run. Even my on-again-off-again boyfriend of five years who always gave me shit showed respect and was rooting for us.
But most importantly, just my own feelings and pride for these Buckeyes. So glad to be alive and have gone to The Game, the Sugar Bowl, and the CFP National Championship, are gifts that can never be taken away. Go Bucks!
There certainly were on my side!
My dad paid for Row 13, C107 tickets via StubHub at $3k each the day after Sugar Bowl.
blocked in C107 by meanies standing up!
Keep the off season news interesting! Haha
23yo female crying MANLY TEARS. Still can't even process this. What. A. Season.
You know it. Buckeye highlights probably.
YEP! Row 13 baby! Thanks to my dad. I have never been to a game where Ohio State's lost and I have been to plenty. GO BUCKS!
Edit: I was also in NOLA, am a teacher, and have accepted I will have no voice until February.
Well, there's that. Don't think they'll get it.
