All I could think of last night watching the game unfold was "
Sparty Bucky No!"
This. While a loss to App. State would be embarrassing to the Skunkweasels (and we would get a good chuckle), a "first loss of the season" to Ohio State would *hurt*. Bad. For a long time:-)
That being said, I will not be disappointed at all if ASU pulls off the shocker.
Hahahaha. Fan. Tas. Tic.
I don't know how I feel about watching Warhawk football, but I definitely want to shoot something now!
An article from Gregg Doyel no less. I think this one makes his second "pro-OSU" article in a row (I could be wrong). Isn't that one of the first signs of the apocalypse?!?
Kidding aside. It's not a bad read at all.
Truly terrible announcing/recap. There are times in that video in which Linda sounds like she is reading a bedtime story to children.
Your an idiot.
I think Craig Krenzel would be an excellent judge of what is a fair and hard hit vs. a dirty shot. If it was my son and I signed him up for football, then I would not get upset (with the other child) if he got blasted fairly. Caveat emptor. I'm sure that CK, as a former player, would probably feel the same way.
Great article. I honestly believe that this team is still capable of accomplishing all of its goals. Everyone will play just a little bit harder and a little bit tougher to pick up the slack. No doubt achieving said goals will be tougher without Braxton, but I have to think Urban and the Buckeyes will be up to the task if this article is any indication.
Very sad to hear this. Funny how much we get attached to these little critters.
Beanie had one of the best stiff arms...ever. Monstrous.
Those two moves on that Cal run were just ridiculous. Video game material.
That stutter step vs. Clemson was a thing of beauty.
Glad to have you, Tim!
Dammit. Are you f'ing kidding me? I live 30 minutes away from UNC's stadium. I am usually forced go to one Tarhole game a year and have to listen to my wife, sister, and brother-in-law (all are UNC alums) talk smack. We were definitely planning to attend the OSU game. It would have been GLORIOUS.
Not his best work, I know, but I loved "Popeye" as a kid.
That sucks for this young man. At least it appears he has a good attitude about the situation (which hopefully will serve him well the next year).
Speedy recovery, Kyle!
Bad break for the young man. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
Edit: Bad pun not intended
I hear you. I've gotten a lot better about not yelling in my old(er) age. However, false starts and stupid personal foul penalties still get me worked up. And I'll second your mention of poor tackling.
Same here (somewhat). If it a close/good game I usually stand and/or pace within a few few of my TV. If it is a BCS bowl game, I don't think I ever sit down.
Congrats on the baby on the way! Baby Buckeye swag is always the best. Love shopping/buying OSU gear for my kids much to the chagrin of my wife (UNC grad).
Un/related sidenote: I taught my kids to say "Go Buckeyes!!" at a *very* early age (i.e., probably started several weeks way too early). Wife started getting tired of my twins (and I) fist pumping and using our "outside voices" to occasionally cheer "Go Buckeyes" at breakfast. Too bad, little does she know I've already started with our 14-month year old daughter (who can only say 5 words; need to increase her vocabulary, right?)
Inaccurate spelling or not...that 'wall of text' is lame. At least they now have a reason to get rid of it.
Thank you and best of luck, Kyle. In addition to your excellent writing, I have greatly appreciated your informative Twitter updates. You will be missed here at 11W.
Hahaha. Corny as hell, SouthernStates...but I laughed. +1 to you.
Coupled with Johnson's outstanding defensive line/scheme and the more aggressive secondary, the arrival of the improved linebacker corps is going to make watching this defense an extremely enjoyable experience. I'll bring the popcorn, guys and gals.
