Man, November 8th is going to be a fun one! A long season and a lot of business to take care of before we get to that point, but hard not to be excited about it now!
Agreed - although our non-conference schedule is stronger than last year, all it takes is one "closer than the experts think" to get the ESPN/Media "OSU is overrated / Big 10 sucks" talk rolling even more than it will be entering the season
haha good call, but spring has been pretty crappy lately..
BY THE WAY - not planning a wedding or anything, just sharing some thoughts. I am a victim of the VT reschedule this year and am pretty bummed about attending a wedding that day.
My desire for a fall wedding stems from my thinking that it will (hopefully) be less-sweaty on my part. Missing out on other games during a bye week or OSU v FAMU seem better than sweat stains on a tux in the middle of July...

I'd agree - too close for comfort.
Also - jealousy would be a good term for my feelings about NU. I was at a wedding in Evanston a few weeks ago, their campus is awesome! Right on the water, cool buildings, and only getting better.
Sad day, thoughts and prayers with those affected!
I agree, doesn't seem fair only 5 get a chance to get evaluated. I'm not sure how many usually do it each year, but everyone who wants should get a shot
I would never deny how great a competitor Tebow was (still is) or the impact that he had on college football. However, I wouldn't put my comment on the level of mad-tweeting recruits. I was in college when this happened, and am actually a year younger than Tebow - so it was more watching someone my own age cry, not a 40 year old father of two cheering as tears streamed down Tebow's face.
Does that justify it? I don't know, just wanted to add some input. Now having been through college, I wish nothing but a great 4 years for these guys, college is a blast.
It will never get old seeing Tebow cry
Great read - I travel around Europe/Americas for work, I have seen some pretty cool places, but nothing compares to the feeling of getting back home to Columbus!
I'm no scientist, but comparing my stomach to Braxton's, it would appear something is working!
Agreed - and, let's keep in mind, it was HIS FIRST YEAR! Not often do freshman come in and just take over, nothing wrong with that
My D.A.R.E. teacher would take smoke breaks behind the portables between lectures - we were all smoking by age 13
Great way to describe the "Ohio" thing. Easy to shake off as stupid at first, but as more and more people use "Ohio", it can start to bother..
Great stuff, I've really enjoyed reading about some of the other coaches around the league!
