I can imagine one person in the middle of nowhere of Big Sky Country just watching the Buckeyes with a lawn chair and a TV.  There's practically no-one in Montana when you drive through.

Cool.  

We should get the Puget Sound 11Ws together.  The Alumni Association hangs out at the Sport near the Space Needle, but it gets crowded. There are other smaller places where Buckeyes meet up.

So many 11W users in Hawaii.  Wut?

On the flip side it can alter a player's reputation, not always for the best. Cardale still tweets some impulsive stuff (much of it is funny), but Urban might not see it that way.

A problem here is that Twitter is inherently wide open and social -- Players and recruits are essentially broadcasting to a world audience and they know that. 

So if you tweet "I'm 100% committed to This Particular University", you can't be surprised when trolls appear that don't like your decision, or that 1000 people tweet congratulations.

If the goal is to limit who you interact with or who listens, there are other venues for that like Facebook, email, or forums like this one.

I had no doubt we were going to kick the snot out of Oregon.  They were 0-8 against us already including a Jim Tressel win over Chip Kelly.  Just play good defense and run it down their throat.  

Urban had the same strategy, but we also had the advantage of being familiar with their offensive style and just being bigger and more physical than them.

The Bama win was the bigger one to me.  It ended all of the "B1G is washed up", "SEC is the best", "Meyer ran away to escape Saban" nonsense. It was only a one TD win, but we didn't just beat them, we made them look foolish.  We shrugged off a 21-6 defecit then ran all over them and threw at will with a 3rd string QB.

There's no way Baylor or TCU would have beaten Alabama. They would have been crushed like bugs.  The committee made the right selection and it shows -- as much as I detest secret committees :)

We sure did Panda Slap a lot of teams last year, especially Wisconsin.

I'm OK with Oklahoma - coached by a Youngstown guy and beating Alabama in a bowl game.  

Past that their conference seems irrelevant.  Texas has been down for several years.   Texas A&M left the conference.  And Baylor or TCU?  Really? They're basically asking for a beat-down by the B1G or the SEC.

There's no way to repeat 2014.  It was such an odd combination of events that led to the team chemistry, and astounding personal performances that shocked the world at the end of the season.

However, I think this season can be equally exciting.  We have a chance to be arguably the best team in Ohio State history.

In particular I'm excited to see what year 2 with Chris Ash and Larry Johnson brings on Defense.   And I think that will be the key.  Urban's offense will always score points, but we need an attitude of toughness and sending a message (like Oregon) that we're coming after them, not just expecting to win.

I think that will be particularly critical in the VT, MSU and TTUN games.   We need to make clear that we're not here for a badminton match -- we're here to destroy anything you think you can do.

Urban is clearly the cream of the crop in the B1G, churning his way to victory after victory and greasing a path to continual success.  The other B1G coaches are the salty type -- they're really butter about the fact that he is clearly butter.

I lived near campus right by the train tracks and cattle pens you mention. 

When the fair was over all of the flies that had been pestering the cattle would come swarming in. We had 3 fly strips for every room. lol.

I'm loving life today.

Goodell declined Brady's appeal, and basically called him out in the process, pointing out the specific ways he was cheating and obstructing things.

Maybe the noses at TSUN are slightly lower today. Lol.
