The Spidercam feed will be simulcast on Watch ESPN for the National Championship... only audio is the ambient stadium feed.  If you are crafty, you can sync up the radio call and watch in Keelsian bliss.

So the question remains, was Chad Lindsay the long con?  Planted by Saban, the most criminal of defensive masterminds?

If I see one play where Zeke gets tackled in the backfield due to a Bama LB "guessing right", consider  the answer to the above a gut punching yes.

kids acting like adults is usually funny.

but like urbs says, kids are a product of their environment.  that little boy learned that behavior from those around him.

so if you were someone who saw that vine & laughed, but then chastised ray rice & adrian peterson weeks ago... gotta take a step back & think about what domestic violence actually entails and the people it affects, unintentional or not.

So how would have this "perception" changed if Buckeyes beat Minny by three scores like it should have?

Gophers likely then are unranked and there goes a "quality" win.

Selection committee is either not watching the games or knows where the most talented team is and is trying to establish a framework to get them in the playoff.

Personally, I know Ohio Stadium can bring it with the best of them, even in home losses like Penn State just experienced (see: Texas '05, USC '09). 

But the largest self supporting athletic department in the country means that there's a lot of $$$ sitting in the Shoe on a given Saturday.  And no matter how big a fan a benefactor may be, you just won't ever get that part of the fan base to be maniacally cheering.

I don't know how old the typical reader is on 11W but with age comes perspective. And that vantage point often promotes a more subdued reaction, because maybe that isn't the first 31-24 win in 2OT in that fan's lifetime...

while it's important to educate buckeye nation on the dastardly deeds of SI's B-side, everyone please be sure that you DO NOT SHARE THE ARTICLE FROM SI's WEBSITE.  this only encourages more filth like this by increasing that idiot's click count.  link to the article only through this page.

when asked in pregame interview about his thoughts on the backup qb situation, says cardale & jt have been a surprise, but buckeyes need to "go recruit a quarterback."  please stay healthy, brax.

The game's greatest prize is something Virginia Tech hasn't sniffed since Mike Vike was throwing darts and scrambling in Blackburg

if mike vike was anything like mike vick, i'm sure he was a one man highlight reel.

who cares what is actual 40 time is? we need to be more concerned with braxton calling his own number before the snap when the play call is to read his keys.  how many times have we watched a run play get stuffed for a few yards where if he would have just given/kept, 20+ yards easy?

i also would love to see more development on braxton's touch.  we know he can sling it long & we know he's got the fastball... but i want to see this kid "throw the curve" for strikes.  the throw where you have to deftly drop it over the LB's and in front of the safeties... the pump fake to get DL's in the air, then dump off the easy screen pass.

braxton has the physical tools, but he isn't there mentally yet.
