Beanie Baby Draft Day was one of my WIFE'S favorite shows on ESPN8 "the Ocho"!

...I've said too much, but it did put Pepper Brooks on the map

Comment 23 Jan 2015

So a _ichigan writer thinks they'll have the worst team in 30 years...

How will we be able to tell?

It's like the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration saying 2014 was the hottest year ever, by only 0.02 degrees - with a margin of error of 0.1 degrees.

Just beat them, and everyone else next year!

Go Bucks!

I loved that the Ducks fans' faces were as colorless as the Ducks players' uniforms, once the OSU beatdown started. My favorite moment after the game was when ESPN showed the Oregon viewing party and the absolutely still and silent room. I've been to funerals and libraries that were more animated.

Special shout out to our seniors and any underclassmen who are leaving early. Extra special shout out to Tom Herman and what he brought to the program. Good luck in Houston!

I have never wanted Monday Night Football to arrive sooner than right now, but I'm not talking about the NFL game. The truly big show is the CFP Championship where my Buckeyes will defeat the Ducks and be crowned kings of college football. Go Bucks!

Braxton absolutely deserves the chance to play QB at OSU again. It was tragic that he never got to play after rehabbing his first shoulder injury and spending so much effort on the mental aspects of the position - Braxton Cam, extra film review, extra dialog with the coaches, etc. In his first season, he carried the team almost single-handedly. It's ridiculous to imagine what he would do with the loaded talent we have now or next year.

If JT Barrett can come of a bench after 2 years and be such an effective thrower/runner, then Braxton likely can, too. He's already the most electric running QB, bar none.

Is Braxton a future NFL QB? Maybe. Maybe not, but he's a hell of a college QB and he's done great things for OSU.

Not our best game, but definitely one of our best victories! We dominated every statistical category except the score until the 3rd quarter, and then built a lead and hung on. Some of the game/clock management at the end was questionable, but the team got it done. Great Win!

Won, Not Done.

More work to do for that last victory against Oregon. Underdogs again. Won't they ever learn?

I remarked to my dad that OSU's win over Wisconsin was perhaps the most complete domination against a quality opponent ever. He calmly reflected on his days as an OSU student when in 1950 against Iowa, OSU won 83-21. Vic Janowicz ran for 2 TDs, threw for 4, kicked all 10 PATs, punted twice for 42 yard average and played safety. He also won the Heisman that year.

I hope my memory is that good when I'm 86!

Go Bucks!

My dream matchup is OSU v Alabama to avenge and quiet SEC kooks. I think Urban wants this win more than anything else right now. It's very personal.

I also hope that the Criminoles beat Oregon so that we can be the ones to knock them off their pedestal. Don't get me wrong, I hate Felon State University as much as the next person, but I'd rather it be OSU to beat them than Oregon.

If the team and coaches are as focused and hungry as they were against Wisconsin, then I really don't think we will have any problems. Alabama is more balanced than Wisconsin, but I can't see anything being successful against the gang tackling and smothering Silver Bullet defense that is back, baby!

Where can I find a time machine to whisk me to Jan 1 at 8:00PM?!!!

Comment 07 Dec 2014

10-point underdogs? Don't the silly fools realize what happens to opponents when OSU is an underdog?

While Alabama is certainly a more balanced team than Wisconsin, it simply won't matter if OSU plays anything close to what they accomplished last night. This is a victory Urban wants very badly. One shouldn't make Urban angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
