DJ,  You're on your game today!  Great prose in your opening paragraphs.  

If the Buckeyes are as tuned in as you are this Saturday, it will be awesome!

I never miss a Skully and I love the "Wire" clips you include from time to time!

I watched Wisky vs. scUM and for most of the game, I thought I was watching a 1960's classic big 10 slug fest.  If Wisky had gone to Ann Arbor with the same game plan they used against the Buckeyes, they might have been victorious in that game.  During their bye week, the Wisky staff modernized that offense and it was totally different than what they showed in Ann Arbor.  Also, the Wisky QB played much better against the Buckeyes than what he showed at scUM.

Of course, they also are a different team at Camp Randall.

I wonder how those two blue chip offensive tackles from OHIO feel about choosing ND over OSU now?  Actually, they're full of the Domer Kool Aid, so they probably can't see anything but Navy and Gold. 

ND may benefit from the new rule that allows five win teams to get a bowl invite, IF they can get to five wins in 2016.

Word out of Ann Arbor is that the athletic dept. has already appealed to the NCAA for a waiver  to allow Pepper's single digit number to be eligible for offensive line play AND he already is a finalist for the Butkus Award.

If we are going to continue to line up on 2/3 of the field on kick off coverage, it's imperative that Durbin does not kick it out of bounds.  We scored on OK, then we give their offense a kick start by spotting the ball on the 35.

Seems like every time we line up in the Wildcat Formation, Wilson or Samuel take the snap, run outside and get stuffed.  We're not fooling anyone unless the OC is setting up a Wildcat pass or some other trickery out of that formation for later in the season.  If not, shitcan that formation!

I've got a problem with last week's programming.   North Carolina on National TV?  Ay Fay Shu has Winston on the sidelines after paying out big $$ because of his indescretions?  Ole Miss on Monday night?  (Hugh Freeze says a head coach can't know what all his players are doing.

 Bootch Davis as a national commentator?  Every program that Grifter has been involved with is accused for violations after he leaves.  Sure, Bootch, you ran clean programs, you were never charged with anything and your predecessors went bad after you left for greener pastures.

What's the message to the players and recruits from these programs?  "No problem, Joey 5 stpar, those stories were blown way out of proportion!  See, You'll be on prime time for opening day!

Hey, almost all of the weddings I go to have an open bar.  If you're going to get hitched and have a cash bar after you've attended many of your friend's and family's weddings where they paid for the booze and you drank your fill, it's your turn to pay it back.  

Don't be like the stiff who accepts drinks paid for others at the bar and doesn't reciprocate.

Whatever it takes to keep this kid healthy.  He's got those mad skills that'll make him a threat every time he touches the ball.  The series of injuries he had as a high school senior are a cause for concern.  Let's hope that maturation and the Buckeyes strength and conditioning programs help to keep him in game shape.....IMO he can be a special player!

Once again, we're on the verge of another Brown's training camp.  Hope springs eternal and the local press will write and talk about improvement and how good the players look compared to last year. We've got a whole new coaching staff this year and a much better attitude!  Yeah, right.

 The Browns practice against the Browns....any team would look good!  I'm expecting this season to bring on more inept play, injuries and excuses while Truck Stop Jimmy keeps on chortlin' like a Tennessee Moon Pie salesman!

A lot of references to buying from Scalpers in the responses.  If I make the trip down from Cleveland for the BG game, what are my chances of getting three tickets on the street?  I'd be bringing my kids, so I want to have a good chance for success...is it worthwhile?

If so, where's the best places to run into a Scalper or two?

Here's a recommendation on a great book from one of the "old guys"..

John Feinstein wrote a very good Bobby Knight story "A Season on the Brink"  It's already been mentioned in this thread, but I know it's better than any Harbaugh fluff piece that might come out in the future.
