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, who was head of the NCAA playoff selection committee for 2014 and 2015 seasons. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

So Don Brown can line up anyway he wants, Barrett has shown he's not an average spread QB - he'll read that D and surgically take what he's given. Houston is a top ten team and couldn't move on the ground against OU. Barrett engineered a ground game barrage.

And secondly, last I looked, ttun doesn't have Mayfield, Perine, and Mixon in the offensive backfield to score points against this defense anyway. And the bullets shut these guys down with two weeks of game experience together - can you imagine how they will be operating by week 12 ?

I head to Tokyo every year at this time for work.  I'm at CLE reading all of your posts about watching games today and wish I could do the same.

But I will NEVER forget being at the 2014 Va Tech game in the shoe, and shlepping to COL airport filled with joyous Hokie fans the next morning . I shook my head in disbelief through the 12 hour flight not understanding how we lost.

Little did I know I would be sitting in the Superdome 3 months later watching my Buckeyes pound Bama on their way to the NC !

Hey guys, don't let the fact that a kicker left UM for TCU slip by you. This isn't just a kid who was wooed by ttun, and chose them from among 10 other offers. His family is huge puke and blew - and there was never a question of where he would go. This is a diehard fan who fulfilled a dream with this offer , and now has left his dream school.

We haven't sold our house in Jackson Township yet (between North Canton and Massillon) because we have a swimming pool there. We spend most of July and parts of August there. 

Not sure the milder Nashville January and Februaries make up for the brutal June and July's. Especially with the annual snow dump we've been getting lately. I think my company sold me a bill of goods using "favorable weather" as an added draw to move !

Hey Nash - we should get together with 11W "Nashville" and watch some games this year. I'm in Hendersonville.

anyway, that was my first "the game", and I remember walking out of the stadium, through the St. John's tunnel.  My buddy yanked down the navy blue sweatpants of a Michigan fan walking just ahead of us. The guy was going commando so everyone got an eyeful. Hilarious to see !
