I cant agree with your thoughts until they have a significant drop off. With the success they have had recently; I believe they are set for the next two years at least as far as talent. It will be, in my no way professional opinion, telling to see what happens during the 2016 season.
The Broward County Alumni (Ft. Lauderdale) has about 150-200 strong. Lived on that side for 15 years before becoming sane and moving to the west coast of Florida.
I believe the answer to your question resides with the 11 Warrior staff. How the hell are we supposed to know.. you moron?!!!!
According to my GPS approximately 20 minutes north of Innisbrook, FL
The best part of the celebration was the singing of Carmen Ohio. I stood in my family room in Clearwater, sang at the top of my lungs and became misty eyed. (Still get misty eyed even after 28 years after graduating).
To all of you heading to the Shoe today; have a great time. I will be down in Clearwater watching it on BTN. At least BTN had the forethought and wisdom to televise the celebration. I hope other recruits are watching to see the love our fans give the BUCKEYES!!!!
Revel and enjoy my 11 Warrior friends; Revel and enjoy.
BUCKGUYFAN1 - You are not alone. I am up on the Clearwater/Tampa area and also fight the good fight behind the lines in SEC territory. As I like to tell my friends who root for other schools - WE are taking over one house at a time. Their response is "I know we can't go anywhere without running into a BUCKEYE!!!!
Keep up the good fight!!!! GO BUCKEYES!!!!!
I packed my OSU beer stein and a Coors light in my lunch cooler. At 9 AM per game day tradition - poured beer into said OSU stein and toasted the football gods in my office.
When Phyllis starts speaking (SCREECHING) I get the sensation my ears are bleeding.
Upvote for the civil war reference.
The word Complacency should be written all over the locker room with the phrase "What not to become" under over it and through it.
I think Urban learned a valuable lesson in the 2013 BIG against MSU -
Never let them get full of themselves - Confidence = yes Egos - check them at the door.
Gentlemen: I have been wearing my Ohio State gear everyday while traveling - Found not haters but people who just looked at me smiling and instantly said "you must be a happy man" and "Congratulations for your team." To the haters - I just smile and walk away without comment. I feel no need to defend the university I graduated from and love to this day. I feel no need to engage clowns who do not know what it is like to be part of the largest community of fans and still have it feel like a small town atmosphere.
To the comments "I feel like my life is 1/2 over." I am 50 years young. My life is not 1/2 over it begins each day. Make sure you wake up each day; face the challenges head on; kick ass to the best of your abilities; remind those people who are closest to you that you love them and then sleep well at night. You then repeat the same scenario each day.
Never look back to what might have been; always look forward to what can be.
I have a question - Why are we, Ohio State fans, even discussing who belonged and who was wronged? The Ohio State Buckeyes are the Freaking National Champions!!!!!
Let the rest of the world wonder Why!!!! If "Ifs and Buts were Candy and Nuts; the world we be so much finer. Or in other words TO HELL WITH THE REST OF WHAT COLLEGE FOOTBALL THINKS!!!!!
Hmmmm.. Let me think about if Urban Meyer may bolt to the No Fun League.... HELL NO!!!!
Please tell all the mouthpieces to SHUT THE ------ UP!!!! Time and again this team shut out all the noise; bought into a TEAM first philosophy and just plane out worked the other teams.
Remember where you were and who was around you when this team won The FREAKING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
I would also like to give a special shout out to the entire 11 Warrior staff for their work. The effort and time you all have taken to bring us every facet of THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY athletic program is 2nd to none.
Thank you too to the 11 W readers, bloggers, posters and wordsmiths who contribute thoughts and anctedores that make this site great.
PRIDE - That is what I am feeling. Pride in the manner in which this team persevered. Pride in the manner in which the whole team bought into Coach Meyers message. Pride in the entire coaching staff and how they got these young men prepared each week. Pride in the manner in which these players carry themselves on and off the field.
Pride at being a part of THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY!!!!!!
IAMABUCKEYE- Remember protect the environment and recycle that bottle. Do not waste a perfectly good empty bottle on Mark May I Be A Douche.
Mr. Green: The Doors - The End.
I'm all for killing time but a quick questions : Is this really a topic that has any meaning with a game to be played by our Buckeyes in less than 24 hours?
To be blunt - At this time I could give a rats ass about anything other than the game at hand!!!!
There is another back with the last name of Tyner who compliments Reese very well. He trucked some very good D players for FSU.
The D needs to account for everyone no matter what their amount of playing time.
GO BUCKS 10 - hit you with an UV for your backing up Crumb.
Crumb - Got your back and brought you up one.
I'll worry about any rumors, transfers, new assistant coaches and other items not related to the game at hand on Monday after the season. That is all!!!!
