I ordered from fanatics and claimed a certain date. It didn't arrive and when I called they said it was just shipped and another 3 or 4 days. I had my hat, but this was a hoody and tee. I complained as I was going into Penn State land and I wanted to proudly wear them. The girl gave me 10 bucks for a future purchase. Here is the shocker. The gear came the next day. More importantly than the ten, I wore my stuff into PSU land and had several glorious convos.

Go Bucks

I am a bit older than most in here. I saw that game. 

Can someone find Champ Henson's big game. In 72, he set the record of 44 carries. Woody always had a FB led offense, but at that time he changed to hb. Archie came on campus. Entire offense changed. Henson hurt his knee and was never the same, but big old Pete Johnson came. Champ led the nation in scoring. I always wondered how good Champ would have been if he had never got hurt.

Jersey is far from urban areas only. There are more horses in Jersey than in Kentucky. There are farms and orchards galore. They love football and Rutgers played in the first college game. The SEC has a lot of Jersey boys and FSU has a couple. High School football is as big, but the pageantry is not as big as in Ohio, Texas etc.

I live in the countryside of Jersey with few neighbors, many horse farms and ponds all over. There is great bass fishing too. Plenty of wildlife including bear. I have seen several coyote in field across from my house. It often reminds me of Ohio. There are urban areas too and they also like football.


The fans are not as crazy as the Ohio fans are. They do have their moments though.

Rod Gerald  (starting QB) was from jersey. Malcolm Jenkins too.

Vince Lombardi, Bruce Arians, Irving Fryer, Mark Ingram to name a few. Football is very big in Jersey. The catholic schools are top rated

One HOF coach after another. I am old enough to have seen Bob Ferguson and Paul Warfield. I can safely say that winning championships has not gotten old. I want to see several more.

I will admit this thing. I love Woody & Tress, but this Meyer guy is damn good.

Nervous till about two minutes left. My mind knew we were gonna be champs, but I was still afraid till the final TD.

Then I thought just how damn good this Urban is as a coach.

Then I thought take that you haters.

Then I thought gonna get me some new championship gear.

I got the hat, a hoody and a tee -shirt.

Then I called my future son-in-law who is a big ND fan and let the congratulations start.

I watched it in the morning so my wife made a big breakfast and later we went out for lunch. I was wearing a buckeye sweatshirt and the block O hat.

Very nice day  and that Meyer guy is a damn good coach.

I am not for replacing him, but I am agaisnt the hype concerning all his wins. A good third of them were agaisnt  horrible competition.

If he was to be replaced, how about Gregg Marshall, Michael White, Josh Pastner or Archie Miller.

Comment 30 Dec 2014

I thought the defense was weak inside and got pushed around the first half and portions of the second. I thought the offensive rebounding was also weak as were the put backs. Discouraging to watch and I am sick of Matta's wins when he plays cupcakes in the pre - conference. The inside players are not young players, but seniors.

Fred Taylor played harder teams.


So did Gary Williams.

You know, I thought with that cute hat on and his skinny face, Johnny looked just like an elf.

Comment 07 Dec 2014

They should also fire Hue "drive killer"Jackson for his stupid cutesy calls. The Steelers are old and weak in the secondary and he calls 3 yard passes the first 2 drives and then that idiot 3 down linemen and a running play

When they went long, good things happened most of the time. 25 points in the 4th quarter is horrible too.
