One day I changed my icon, and the entire internet almost collapsed in on itself and destroyed the known universe. Good news is that we're all still here and can laugh about it. Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

Sounds like your co-workers are doing a great job of breaking down SEC stereotypes!  How original and creative they must be!

The only thing you need to ask any of the non-Alabama fans is, "Which playoff game are you guys in this year?  I stopped watching after they announced Ohio State."

As far as the Alabama fans go, I don't know any.  I am in a line of work where we don't meet many people that come from SEC schools in general.

Hey, if they're gonna piggyback on each others' laurels, then they all get boo-boo on their team.

Yeah, it's definitely strength vs. strength in this game.  It's put up or shut up.

Bama is so good because of the giant holes they blow open for their running backs.  You absolutely have to respect the run against Alabama because every single year they trot out an NFL all-rookie unit on the offensive line.  Of course, all of their other talent is top notch, too.  But everything starts and stops with busting 5, 6, 7 yard runs on first down.

Ohio State right now operates under same philosophy.  The threat of getting burned by the run in so many ways is what makes Ohio State so dangerous.  So yeah, this is going to be a dogfight, and Ohio State is more than capable.

Nice.  I used to be a frequent contributor at SN before they got rid of comments and blogs, and I'm very familiar with Matt Hayes.  He's married to a Buckeye, but absolutely trashed OSU in the latter years of Jim Tressel.

I'm starting to wonder if the press hated Ohio State because of Jim Tressel, and that it was simply boring to cover a 1970s franchise in the 21st century game.

I'm pretty sure Dennis Dodd loves Ohio State, and he thinks Urban Meyer is a freaking awesome coach.  He just hates Jim Tressel.  DD picked us in the preseason of 2013 to win the national title with Braxton Miller, and he's even used the term "island of excellence" to describe Ohio State and Michigan St. in the B1G.

As scarlet colored glasses wearers, we combed through the testimonies and the like to get as much information as we could about how Jim Tressel found himself in such a bizarre precarious position that led to his resignation so that we could forgive him.  BUT, Jim Tressel literally did neither himself nor Ohio State any favors with his wishy washy coach speak that made him "The Senator" in press conferences, but an NCAA rule dodger in investigations.  I wonder if he had just explained the whole thing in plain language up front the way Jimbo Fisher does that he'd still be the head coach.  Dodd probably lost any and all last shred of respect for him after 10 years of never giving a straight answer when Tressel didn't give straight answers to the NCAA.

Didn't see others had already had the "throw club in lake" suggestion.  I deleted my unoriginality.

Very cool, though!

MMan is spending a lot of helmet stickers in here.

Little does Forde know, Urban Meyer has been preparing for this since he was hired.  Shhh, don't tell him!

Comment 18 Dec 2014

I don't see what Forde said as disrespectful at all.  The game could easily go that way.  Anyone in their objective right mind recognizes that the notion of a 1-game starter to rising and beat Alabama, the best team of the last half decade, is a long shot.  It would be a really rare event.

I think Ohio State beats Alabama in a walk, but virtually all of the skepticism nationally is based on the lack of experience at the QB position.  I personally think that this game is on the O-line's shoulders to bust EzE wide open, not Cardale Jones.

The Sugar + the national championship = 2 for OSU. #callingyourshot

Comment 17 Dec 2014

It's gonna be a tricky game, but I'm with DJ...I think there is going to be a quarter, maybe two, where Ohio State just pours on the pain.  It's the O-line's game to lose.  We go as Elliot goes...
