Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, AD at Arkansas, and head of the NCAA playoff selection committee. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

I just can't get that feeling because I have seen too many games called by James Franklin. I hope you are correct !

C'mon DJ, don't resurrect QBgeddon. We saw that side of the record for 8 games and it never improved. I'm sure that weekly nondecision contributed to the results then , and last Saturday.  So against the toughest front, #16 made his 2nd start of the season in week 11. At least this week, the offensive brain trust doesn't have to call the play not to lose card since they got that one out of the way.

Me too, a TTUN alum reports to me and sits outside my office. When I walked iinto work yesterday, he had this shit eating grin on his face like his whole weekend he looked forward to rubbing the loss in my face.. I told him "not once did I rub an OSU victory over you guys in your face over the last 5 years that we've worked together, and not once did I crack on you after we won the NC. I know it hurts and that's why I don't do it". He stopped grinning.

But really, everyone is happy when we lose. I suppose it's the same way I feel when Bama loses to Ole Miss.

So many differences from last year exposed in the first tough game of the season :

- new QB coach and mishandled QB situation

- new guy in the booth who was terrified of losing and terrified of being blamed for the reason the team couldn't defend their title 

- co OC taking focus off the O line

now there is no reason to fear losing. Go out and turn to page two of the playbook - if you lose so what ? Go out fighting

Let's be honest with ourselves. At what point in this season after the Va Tech game, did you ever think "this team is one of the top 4 in the country" ?    After that first week, the offense was a shell of it's championship run. 

Mack Brown said it's all about entitlement last night, and he has been in our corner all year.  Meyer knew it would be a struggle so he tried to create "the grind" to overcome what he couldn't  after a championship at Floride.

You are right sir !   In the beginning of the third qtr I texted friends and said, "guys you have to sit back and laugh sometimes when you know the $ these guys are making for  the unimaginitive and predictable job they have done all year."

Like you , I was resigned to the loss and thought it was inevitable. I remember how shitty my son and I felt sitting in Lucas Oil after losing the Big Ten to MSU two years ago. That was a waaaaay worse feeling because I thought that team was actually better, this team just has not been that good no matter who the opposition was.

There's a PR disaster brewing. Just watched Mack Brown criticizing the Buckeyes for the declarations by Zeke and Cardale that they are not coming back. Going to be tough to focus and going to be tough to get players to believe in the game plan. What am I talking about, there really is no game plan other than scripted QB run plays.

JT will be fine today - don't forget he was in court Tuesday before last game, then the dashcam video hit the web on Wednesday. This week, that was all old news,  and he will be dialed in. 

Then after we win, we won't need TTUN to be ranked in the top 15 in order to pump up our ranking. So, let the Wolverpussies lose their way right out of the Big Ten championship picture at Penn State - and we can dance into Ann Arbor with no pressure since we will already have won the east.

Calling the shot :

Mike Thomas takes a step back off the line and Samuel appears to be setting a bubble screen block. Barrett pump fakes the screen to Thomas which freezes safeties and the DE.  Barrett recoils and fires to a post streaking Marshall who is wide open - 78 yard TD. I'm thinking this happens toward the end of Q1.

Chatty you're right - I was at the game the last time the Spartans played in the Shoe in October 2011, Braxton was a freshman and had taken over as starting QB, Fickell was the interim HC, and our man Jim Bollman was calling the offensive shots. We lost 10-9 I think. 

Look at us now !!! One NC in the books, controlling our own destiny to compete for a second, and another top 3 recruiting class coming for 2016.
