Thanks for all the suggestions. I've been looking forward to this for years. This year spring game and hopefully next year he'll be ready for regular season.

I doubt he'll make it through sitting for both the lacrosse game and spring game this year but I like the suggestion. Does anyone know if the band will be playing anywhere before the game? He would love that.

Plan to walk him through Buckeye Grove. Any other suggestions? I didn't go to tOSU so I don't know the area as well as I'd like. Will arrive Friday evening so will have plenty of time. Thanks again!

This article is a great look for the might Michigan coach. They must be really proud.

Really, OU is the only playoff team that is playing like one at the end. I anticipate it to be a rather mediocre affair. I'd like to see the B1G win it again, but I don't think a Sparty with a non-100% Cook can win it (I sure wish we had gotten that Scott kid though...).

The best team is definitely not in the race this year.

We need to crush Stanford in the Rose Bowl and maybe that will help get 8 teams into the playoff in the future.

P.S. In about 5 years Coach Meyer will probably be strongly considering retirement. Nice move Tom. Very nice. I'll be glad to welcome you back once Meyer decides to hang them up.

I trust Birm and I'm usually pretty positive, but I just don't see how this past weekend helped our recruiting at all. Between the weather, the play, the play calling, the boos and the apparent team dissension afterwards it just couldn't have impressed anyone not already wearing scarlet colored glasses. 

It seems to be the kind of weekend where you hope not to lose ground with a recruit like Jackson. Your not going to gain ground I don't think.

Very few know that the Senator is a master of Eastern European geopolitics. He became entranced with the subject in graduate school while attending a seminar on the Potsdam Conference. In fact, he secretly credits his in depth geopolitical studies of this tumultuous part of the world in helping him with the mental calculus involved with winning many a field position battle. Thus, with Saturday's weather forecast he knew it would be a day for just such a tactical battle and so he settled in by the fireplace and his solid wood Zenith console TV with Encyclopedia Brittanica Volume 21 (James Payn to Polka), one of his personal favorites, in order to brush up on perestroika.

The Senator had just finished using Scotch Magic Tape to fix the tear in the page that went right through Mikhail Gorbachev's forehead that occurred earlier in the game due to his violent reaction after Cameron Johnston's muffed punt and he was settling in with 5:49 left in the game to watch his beloved Buckeyes final drive, which he assumed would involve lots of Zeke eating up the clock and driving the ball downfield for a field goal or touchdown. After a 3 and out that took just 1:42 off the clock and didn't involve Zeke at all, the Senator knew what was coming next with MSU having the ball at the OSU 48, so he closed his encyclopedia, leaned back in his chair, asked Ellen for a vodka and cranberry, and muttered cyKNH CbIH ("son of a..." In Russian) low enough of course as she walked away so that she couldn't hear and reprimand him.

What makes this loss so difficult is the degree to which this team and coaching staff underachieved. Not just this game, but all season long. With this team's talent the 2nd string should have been playing the entire 2nd half of almost every game this year. It just seems that nobody wanted it. They fell into the trap of everybody telling them how great they were.
