Comment 24 Dec 2014

The front 7 was more of a concern heading into the B1G Championship but in that game, there was a great rotation. I guess some of the reserves were a bit nicked up. They've had some extra time to heal. I expect Carter, Schutt, to play well in the middle. The ends again will play well.

My "dream" opening sequence is that 'Bama gets the ball first, they run but are dropped for a loss of 3, then attempt a quick hitter to Cooper but Grant or Bell flatten him causing a drop, then Sims is sacked.

Bama gets a decent punt off (but its almost blocked), and downs it inside the 10. Then Eze runs it down their fucking throats. 4 yards, 7 yards, 15 yards, 5 yards, 4 yards, 4 yards, etc. Marshall takes it around the corner 17 yards. Eze keeps pounding, 'Bama is staking the box, bringing safeties up and it doesn't even matter. Buckeyes push it up the field by punching 'Bama in the mouth over and over. Buckeyes make it to the 1 and Cardale keeps it and pushes in for the TD. Buckeyes pick up 80 yards on the ground the first drive and 'Bama is thinking "Oh shit! They're going to do whatever they want!"

I don't want to be too political. However, I will say that we need to do a better job making things safer for the women in our lives. Rape is an extremely serious accusation. The word shouldn't be thrown around carelessly (looking at you Lena Dunham), and our first reaction to someone saying it happened should be to believe them.

Another trouble is that the majority of the reported rapes are indeed true but the ones we hear about have a higher chance of being false because they involve someone wealthy. Even when these cases are indeed true, the wealthy have the ability to hire top notch lawyers that are great at making their client seem truthful.

My New Year's resolution is to provide free legal services to victims. If you're reading this comment, please consider for a moment what thing you may be able to do to help victims of these awful situations. If you're reading this and have been a victim and could use my help, message me. I'll listen. I can discuss options.

I am with you. I was bullish on Cardale before the B1G. Hell, in The Game, after JT was hurt, I correct some drunk freshman that were saying the playoff was out of the question and Cardale can't throw (PSA: casual fans in bleachers, don't be negative! You don't know what the hell you're talking about so why not be positive?).

Ohio State's offense is just too balanced and flexible. I don't envision a scenario in which Ohio State scores less than 35. The game might not even be close. Just a feeling I have.

I am so happy that the Buckeyes got this match up. There is no one in college football I'd rather see the Buckeyes beat than 'Bama. They've been the top dogs for a while, they're ranked number 1. Everything is perfectly set up for the Buckeyes to make a huge statement. This is a dream match up!

The girlfriend and I scraped money together to make the Sugar Bowl. We decided the trip would be our gift to each other (I am a lucky guy! She wants to get married, guess I need to get on that). I am so damn excited! I'll have "Sandy" the Ohio Flag (long story about the name but its a tradition I have with a buddy) and we'll be eating in 'Bama with full Buckeye gear on and Sandy in tow. I am going to fly that double pennant high and proud like U.S. Muthafuckin Grant. I don't even care if I get punched (though I won't be obnoxious, I'll be polite. Did the same thing in SC last year and met the nicest Clemson fans. Fun to hear their takes and eat their food), I'll post the black-eye proudly and tell the story forever.

The Winston situation is frustrating. I've worked with rape victims before. It is shameful what they have to go through even when there is significant evidence backing their claims. Many people simply don't want to believe that someone they like did something awful. It is easier to believe that the victim is a liar. Often its refereed to as "he said/she said" but if I told police I saw a particular person rob a store, it wouldn't be he said/he said. I'd be believed unless I had some reason to make it up. If I had such a reason, then other evidence could be used to corroborate my story.

I don't know what happened in Winston's room that night. I do know that the accuser's name has been posted around social media and that people have said terrible things about her. I hope she somehow finds the peace she needs. I suspect a civil case may be in the works. If so we'll know more. However, such a case will open her entire life up to scrutiny. Rape shield laws are largely inapplicable to civil cases (which is especially troubling in situations in which the rapist sues for defamation - a common tactic). The questions asked of the victims in these situations can be downright vile (I'll spare you questions I've heard a crying victim asked, trust me when I say you'd be outraged).

I apologize for being negative on Christmas Eve. I just get a bit sad when I read about these things knowing how some of the details play out.

Because I am a homer, I'm gonna say advantage Ohio State. Das Boot is a freshman, which means he is learning and practices are making him better and better. 'Bama has sophomores so less growth over the course of the season. Also, Das Boot has kicked in the wild wooly cold-ass north, while 'Bama has been kicking in comfortable warm locations. Thus, advantage Das Boot.

It was nice back in the day when I'd put a bunch of thought into something and the UVs started flowing. "They like me, they really like me!"

Also, "Fur" by BT is one of my favorites.

Last saw the Stripes at Promo West Pavilion (now LC). It was a sold out show but I snuck in. Jack White has such a gravity to him. Was one of the best shows I ever attended.

I am not sure why the cap became 10. It seems to me that if a person post one thing that is terrible enough, they should get as many DVs as warranted.

DVs have been misused for a long time. Though I've noticed a bit of group correction. When someone gets needlessly dinged, they normally get helped out.

I don't understand why other users have more info regarding UVs and DVs than the poster. I won't know if this comment received dvs unless it does negative.

Bring back the ability to vote on blogs and posts. When someone writes something good, I want to reward them.

Alabama, watch the VT tape. Its the only tape you should watch! See how easily you can defeat Ohio State by playing 4-6 D? That's all you have to do. Just play 4-6. Bring your safeties up. Cardale is only a third-stringer, don't worry about the pass.
