Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell - saw one of those pre-game stories that focused on him.  How he joined a book club with a bunch of 60 year old women and still goes every week.  Plus he said his greatest accomplishment was reading the Hunger Games trilogy in two days - thought that was too great not to root for him.

Checked 247 recruiting this morning - TTUN dropped all the way to #70 below the likes of powerhouse programs like FAU and Arkansas State.  Team is in a free fall - but next Saturday is the biggest rivalry game in college football and records don't matter, so like others above I'll still be worried like every other year.

Didn't look he never got into a rhythm - found the open receivers though.  Not sure what it was - had enough time on some throws, not much at all on others.

Who keeps coming into threads and down voting every single comment?  If you have something to say against what people are writing then come out and say it!

Comment 22 Nov 2014

Good for him - and for Urban for trusting his players and backing up everything he's been saying about not letting mistakes take over.

Comment 22 Nov 2014

I wish it wasn't the case, but this late in the season teams are under a lot more scrutiny.  It puts a lot more pressure on a team, but against Indiana you need to really make sure it's not close.

Comment 22 Nov 2014

Definitely - especially this late in the season.  

I loved how Herbstreit just stared down Corso though when he said he loved it (from a coach's perspective).

Comment 22 Nov 2014

You can definitely count me as one of them - I've gone as far as muting halftime and avoiding GameDay completely to avoid some of the bias.  This definitely won't bring me back though - too many years of sucking up to the SEC.

Born in Youngstown but raised in New York - grew up watching games every week with my Dad so was a fan for as long as I can remember.  But when Tressel came over from YSU things really heated up because we had a hometown guy to root for as head coach (my dad went to YSU as well way back when)...since then it's only grown with every year.

Even if Georgia manages to close out the season and win the SEC it would still take a lot of teams losing ahead of them to make it in - two terrible losses to South Carolina and Florida are hard to overlook.

I would still prefer to see UGA in the SEC championship game though - might be the best team to play them this year on a neutral field.

FSU is the one team that if they lose will have no chance of making the playoffs and will probably be ranked behind a number of 2 loss teams - no quality wins at season end.  That being said they have a pretty easy go of it the rest of the way so I'm not counting on them faltering down the stretch.

Same thing - I'm always checking and double checking before I post something and then still holding my breath hoping it's unique.

I'm a fan of the classic with just "Ohio State" the Nike swoosh, though hard to find those styles exactly since they change them up so often now.  Here is one I actually just ordered that comes close:

Homage has some pretty cool ones as well.

Like you said in your post - with all that's going on what's not to enjoy!

Honestly though, maybe it's something that comes with growing up - I know I'd be in the "jerk" crowd 10 years ago ranting every Saturday (not necessarily at the Ohio State players, but everything else).  Now I try just to enjoy it all, realize how lucky I am to be a fan of the best football team ever, and learn to not let a loss or bad game ruin my entire Saturday/weekend.

Regarding re-posting forum topics - I've done the search before to make sure I'm not double posting only to find out it was something discussed earlier in the day and is just no longer on the initial search page.  Can we maybe create a way to delete a forum topic if we realize that after the fact?

Comment 16 Nov 2014

Ohio State is definitely one of the best 4 teams in the country right now, but I don't see the committee putting them higher than 6th.  TCU's "win" was pretty bad, but I'm not sure they get punished enough to move them down by 2 spots.  I still think we're okay though, still 3 games left in the season and given how many crazy things have happened if we win out I don't see how they would leave them out of the playoffs.
