Got 3rd at the track state meet (1600m) as a sophomore, was boxed in (12th? 13th?) for 3 laps, luckily it was a tactical race (no one wanted to push the pace up front) and I managed to make up a good 30m and just missed out on the win by less than 2 seconds.  The whole way down the home stretch I kept looking down at the ground hoping not to see a shadow creep up on me.  Injury-filled running career after that.

Ironic that Lil Boosie is telling kids "to go on and wear that yellow jersey" while he wears a red and white shirt

The whole staff?  A bit extreme.  LF, yes.  Soft zone calls and rarely blitzes has driven everyone (mostly fan base) crazy.  Coombs, not sure.  We all love his enthusiasm, but some simple mistakes by the CB's we've seen this season really bite the team in the @ss, but again, we all love his energy.  We as a fan-base (outsiders, at least me) do not really know the extent of Withers and his involvement in the play-calling, maybe for better or worse.  Vrable HAS to stay because of his recruiting and coaching abilities. 

Although LF took one for the team, it shouldn't play a factor in the judgment/review of his current position with the team. Don't try and tell us that the performance against Indiana was superb and wonderful. By that argument, who has a better O, MSU or Indiana? The same issues and mistakes (not with the kids, the play-calling) are being made from September of 2012 to December of 2013. 

I know that we as a fan-base should not be complaining about things such as this. Going 24-1 is no effing joke. It takes a lot of talent on the field, talent in coaching, general preparation and luck.  However, everyone is walking away tonight feeling hollow and empty because what many (I will admit, I was in denial and thought the Band-Aid on a gash wound was fine due to the O) thought was "writing on the wall" wasn't corrected - even this blog had a poll about what the D could ultimately lead to...  I voted "it could lead us to trouble" or whatever the answer was. 

Let's take a night/case of beers to pout and tomorrow we'll all get over it and move on to make a statement in whatever bowl game our beloved Buckeyes end up in.  They are 18-23 year old young-men, they need nothing but our (family, friends, alumni, fans, etc.) positive support. 

Go Buckeyes!

Sparty by a country mile. In fact, this poll question should be...

"How hot does Pelini's seat get after this weekend?"

- Fourth Degree Burn

- Spilled hot coffee while driving

- Luke (Fickell) warm

 

**I actually like Luke Fickell, but I know how a good chunk of the fan base feel about him, so don't go all "Fire/Don't Fire Luke!@!%#" on me.

Kliff Kingsbury is the friggin' man! (after Urban of course)  Loved T-Tech w/Leach, looking forward to seeing those guys light up the scoreboard in the BIG 12 10? 12

Still waiting to find out where Crazy Jim is going to relocate to - these guys have it all, greasy sliders, deep fried veggies, and a sassy staff.

Tio's is quite overrated, Sabor Latino is infinitely better in my opinion. Taco Tuesday = $1 Tacos and Beers.

If you ever get a chance/have some down time, make your way into Ypsilanti and go to "Sidetracks", GQ named it one of the best burgers in the nation and the fried zucchini, pickles, mushrooms, sweet potatoes are all phenomenal. During happy hour all beers on tap are sold for $2.95 (32oz mugs and you have 30+ selections, mostly microbrews). Spent not enough time and money there during college.

I hope he joked that "the B is for 'Bama"   Oh wait... I forgot that Nick Saban doesn't have a sense of humor.

As for the Food & Night Life...

The Heidelberg is fantastic, just on the outskirt of downtown so it's never too crowded and college kids rarely venture that way on Main St. Same goes for Casey's and Fraser's Pub.

Stay away from 8 Ball Saloon, nothing but extremely shady folks there. 

For food, go to Izzy's Hoagie Shop on Stadium or Dimo's Deli (right down the block).  Great sandwiches for a reasonable price.
