There is the old saying "If If's and buts were candy and nut the world would be finer. If could haves and would haves were nuts and candy life would be dandy."
I say the above because you can always speculate but nothing is going to change the past. Yes, I am being a bit of a downer, but how many more threads are going to come up surmising "if this" or "but that" or "could this have happened then would this have happened."
Yes, I know I always have the option of not reading these threads and everyone has their right to post; however - might I suggest we move along and actually deal with the here and now as the Buckeyes are in a major bowl game; had (for most fan bases) a stellar win-loss record for the regular season and the senior class is looking on securing their 50th win. With all that is good going on right now - Why dwell in the past or what might have been if the Buckeyes had another teams schedule?
