53. Lord, I hope not.
What do you mean...'Flash Gordon approaching'?!?
Concise breakdown of the VT bear defense. Excellent presentation as well. A sincere thanks to you, sir.
No need to get worked up over a video, guys. I've got a feeling that the players and coaches remember last year's game *quite well* on their own account. Hokie hype video=drop in the ocean to the players (if they even watch it). If the Buckeyes play with the same intensity/execution as they did in their last 3 games, there is nothing VT can do to change the overall outcome of Monday's game. That being said, VT is a quality opponent and is more than capable of taking the game if OSU comes out flat and fails to execute (which I just don't see happening if only because of last year's contest).
Pistol whipping joke aside, this is one of the funnier things I have read all week and mirrors my attitude to a T. +1 to you sir for the actual laugh out loud moment.
Agree completely. There is a hidden/inside joke for the parents in almost every skit.
I believe I saw this on a T-shirt once...and it is quite appropriate here.
My sincerest condolences, OP.
That. is. awesome.
When Zeke broke through the line, I literally sucked in my breath and held it for the the entire 85 yard run. I then looked at the score...looked at the time remaining...and went crazy because I knew King Bama just got curb-stomped.
Make no mistake...Zeke's run vs. that Bama/SEC defense (symbolically) ushered in a new era for Ohio State.
But...but...Jerry Rice was fast as hell in Tecmo Bowl!
(Albeit not Bo Jackson fast in Tecmo Bowl).
11 games. All in the Horseshoe. I was present for the 1998 Michigan State game. I still can't believe how quiet the Shoe got after the final play/interception. Never felt so dejected (as opposed to upset/angry) after a game in my life.
I am still convinced that the 1998 Ohio State team was the best in the nation. Just not that day, unfortunately.
[Side note: I think that 1998 MSU game may very well be the reason that the win over Alabama/Saban in this year's Sugar Bowl was even sweeter for me personally]
Buckbat, I think the comments made by 11W readers above were in response to the 'original' article.
I read the linked article yesterday and there was no "Update" by the Reddit user (see middle of page)...which tells a second/alternate side of the story.
DJ, please don't be too hard on yourself. While I don't believe it was eighth grade, I did think the war between the US states was the 'Silver War' for the longest time.
Yeah, HBO canceled this great show because it was so expensive to produce. I read somewhere that it cost more to make an episode of Rome than an episode of Game of Thrones.
If Urban thinks it's in OSU's best interest to hire a damn 4 year old, who are you to criticize?!?! I don't care if he was 3 year old. In Urban we trust!
I think you are giving too much credit to Griese as to having a brain.
A sincere thank you for all of your hard work and efforts, Birm. Hope you get some well deserved rest today.
I honestly would have laughed even if it was the other way around. Well done, Brutus!
Carmen Ohio at the end was a nice touch.
So the question is...did the Mrs. *finish* The Hurry Up for your son or read some crap like, say, The Three Little Pigs. If the former, you got yourself a keeper!
St. Aquinas HS pipeline? Yes, please.
Whatever. Never heard of those guys!
I wonder if we will ever really find out who made the call. I saw/heard Pete Carroll admit to making the play call during the postgame interview. However, Bevell was explicitly quoted as "Yes, I made the call" in a USAToday article I read this morning. I guess it doesn't matter.
Even this play call by Michigan made sense. The skunkweasels only got one crack at it from the 2. In contrast, the Seahawks had the best RB in the country with at least 2 tries from the 1/2 yard line.
If I were to earn a degree from an SEC school, Vandy would definitely be my choice. Best of luck to him!
