Disappointed, but honestly, I damn near picked Dayton in my bracket because of this yo-yo season. Will really miss Craft. What a competitor. Won't miss watching this team, though. Matta will have better teams in the future. Oh well, at least I can now watch March Madness now as a pure spectator, without my usual OSU angst.

My thoughts exactly. OSU reported this as a "strain"? No way. You don't get surgery on a MCL strain. Has to be a pretty bad tear. Good luck & heal well, Vonn.

So where do I go to collect the gold star ?   ;-)

@Mush - How about " I thought Miller was hurt & it looked like Clemson knew it and was coming after him. And I think it affected some of his throws. Or - I think that Kenny G would have thrown a better ball at that point." Should it be assumed that we would have therefore beaten Clemson? Naw.

@buckeyeb9b82501-

Sooooo....... Johnny spends 6 days, 7 hours, 34 minutes and 16 seconds crafting this superb article on Brotherly Love and all you can talk about is Amir Williams? You're a tough audience!

P.S. I'm in agreement with you about A.W.

P.P.S. Great article, Johnny, and so very true. Thanks!

Are you living in Alabama now? Sorry to hear that if you are! I like being surrounded by my Buckeye friends, family, co-workers, & neighbors.

Great job, Jason & crew. Some really nice features. I would have to say, so far, that "Tatum" looks like a fast, hard hitting site with the soul of an assassin, and some great safety features.

PSU a rivalry? No. I neither love nor hate PSU, I'm just indifferent to them. Do I want to beat them every year? Yes. Do I hate to lose to them? Yes. But I also feel that way about Purdue. I see our only natural rival as UM.

Jason - This has become my go to daily site. I love 11W, the community of Buckeye nuts, the info, the respectful banter, the commentariat, the daily Skull Sessions. Thank God I found you guys. Started lurking here during "tatgate" - it saved my sanity. Keep up the GREAT work! Bravo!

No word on if by-standers rushed in with pales of water in order to save the local gem.

 

I'd be hard pressed to use any of my pales to put out the fire, even for great Mexican food. Or, God forbid, adding water to my pale!  I do love my pale ales. (especially my current Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale).

@ZipLock - 100% agree. And I would add 1 more point. I never saw the junior/senior leadership step up and demand better from their fellow players. For example, I think Ryan Shazier is a better linebacker than Zach Boren, but Boren may be a better leader. And it took something like Boren's sacrifice, effort, and LEADERSHIP (along with John Simon's) that brought that defense together. I know I wasn't in the locker room, but on the field it we didn't have clear leadership & a motivating force this year.

I was and still am wondering why Guiton didn't finish the game. The coaching staff was watching Miller wince, double over, windmill his hurt shoulder, etc... And Clemson obviously saw it too & came after him with a vengeance.

P.S. I'm not in the Guiton is better than Miller camp. But I did think Guiton would have been the better choice for the last 2 series.
