I'm originally from Columbus, but now reside in NC. I am a youth and worship minister at a church in High Point. Outside of the Buckeyes, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors (skiing, hiking, camping, kayaking), riding roller coasters, playing frisbee golf, listening to/playing music, and watching movies and TV (LotR, 24, Psych).

I agree, NorCal. If you aren't top 4, you shouldn't be able to compete for the title. If we expand it to 8, then you're looking at having a 3 loss USC team playing for the title. Sorry, if you lose 1/4 of your games, you shouldn't be able to compete for the championship. This isn't the NFL where you can lose half your games and still have a shot. Play well enough to be considered or play in the Citrus Bowl.

As I've said before, Bama all the way. My coaches used to say, "To be the best, you've got to beat the best." That's Bama right now. Plus, think of how we talked about how Bama dodged us in the playoffs last year. We'd hear the same from Bama fans if we didn't go through them.

I feel like at this moment in college football history, I want no one but Bama. While I don't really like Saban, I respect what he has built in Tuscaloosa. Our two programs are on a different level right now, and I guess I take to heart what Mike Doss said when Miami almost lost in 2002. He wanted them to be undefeated, because he wanted to have to beat the best for the title.

The interviews for Gameday were very interesting. Ttun's reminded me of the Ohio State mindset under Cooper - we're trying to treat it like just another game. All of our players were saying that this was THE game that you come to OSU to play for. There was no other game that would compare to this one. I think you are definitely on to something.

Did I miss something. To me, it looks like the guy bumps into him facing the other way, continues to walk by until Peppers grabs him and spins him around. It would be a little more understandable if the guy had been up in his face yelling and shoving (although you still can't get physical with a fan), but from what I see, it's all on Peppers.

Cincy, whatever happens now will pale in comparison to the picture you just painted in my mind.

What was so frustrating about this mindset was that people automatically equate not winning it in 108 years with 108 years of heartbreak. For a good majority of those 108 years, the Cubs have been terrible. They haven't been close. They did make a bunch of WS from the last title through the forties, but after that, they were pretty bad. As the Browns have shown us, it is easy to forget about (and even laugh at) a team that is continuously that bad. Cubs fans acted like they had it so bad, but in my opinion at least, I would rather not be close for over a hundred years than to lose the WS 3 times in 21 years, with 2 of those being extra innings game 7 losses. I think the only fans that can truly relate to that heartbreak are Bills fans.
