Greg Mattison was their defensive coordinator. Nussmeier was calling the plays. But I agree with you that I will never expect a romp again in The Game. In 2013 I let myself buy into the fact that our football team had too much of a talent gap, and superior coaching would lead to a rout. Somewhere in the third quarter I realized how foolish I had been.

I apologize for my earlier comments, I took you "throwing it around the office" quite literally. I can definitely understand wanting to show it to people. Even then, i'd be wearing gloves when I picked it up, and there would be a zero touching policy haha. I actually bought a national championship mini helmet signed by him, from fanatics. I have never, nor will I ever, take it out of its case. People can still see it, signature and all.

Kick six. Still riding the high from the ending of the Michigan game, I don't think I'll ever be that excited for an ending to a football game that wasn't a Buckeye game. Just from a sports fan's perspective in general, that kind of ending to an Iron Bowl game? Wow. Admittedly, I thought we were heading to the national title game at that point. Unfortunately so did many of the players. Still a moment I'll never forget.

Sox fan here. Thanks for giving me something to smile about tonight in regards to my baseball team. Even if it was only for a few seconds, and of something that is almost two years old now...*sigh* Go Sox...

Our ranking looks way better than it should, given the size of the Shott.

One thing I will say is that if you ever find yourself in the market for a new shotgun, especially to use for sporting clays, invest in a semi-automatic or an O/U. Less recoil, and not having the added step of pumping, will help for sure. How did the girls do with the 20 gauge? I've shot trap with a 20, never sporting clays though. Some of those shots would be pretty tough with a 20 gauge it would seem. Then again I shoot pheasants, quail, and grousse with a 20 so maybe it would benefit me to do it.

I am a member at Blackwing in Delaware, I love sporting clays! Shooting trap is fun, especially when you are with someone who is still learning how to shoot. But sporting clays are a completely different challenge, as you found out. What kind of shotty were you using?

Defensively, I am going to go with Sam Hubbard. Already has Coach Meyer singing his praise, and too athletic to not see the field. On offense, I will echo the OP with Johnnie Dixon. Obviously it has only been a matter of health for him, because he has the hands and speed to be elite. He is the guy I think I am rooting for the most to have good fortune and stay healthy. Other than 'kwon, he was probably the guy I was most excited about in last year's class.

Ohio State and TCU are the best bets for me. I think those two will be near consensus. After that, I am pretty high on USC. I just can't buy into Oregon reloading again, and past that there isn't a team in the Pac 12 that comes close to SC's talent. So we will see what kind of head coach Sark really is. I also think Cody Kessler will be in New York. The ND game should have a ton of hype. I will give the final spot to Auburn. I do think they will lose a game, but I think they beat Bama on the plains, and then beat Georgia in the SEC title game. My first two out would be Clemson and Michigan State.

Crabil burgers and a bag of Mumfords, please. And throw in a pizza from Benny's in Marysville while you're at it.

Comment 01 Jul 2015

Nothing compares! Also saw someone talking about some chips and how they were the best in the world. I thought it was weird because that bag of chips didn't say Mumfords on it...

I couldn't stand the Dee Brown/D-Will basketball teams, but man were they fun to watch. I have also been to Assembly Hall, and that can be a great atmosphere! I've only ever been to Memorial Stadium once, and I was young. Mike Doss about killed Kurt Kitner in that game, and I believe Dan Stultz hit a game winner. There is no way, if I was pulling the trigger on booting someone from the conference, that Illinois would even be in the discussion. But you are right, it is way past time to pay someone to turn that football program around.

Comment 29 Jun 2015

Rutgers. Rutgers. Rutgers. The worst football programs in this conference, except Northwestern, at least have respectable basketball programs. Rutgers adds absolutely nothing, in terms of competition, in either sport. And maybe they never will. I would love to be able to trade them for Louisville.

My framed front page of the Tuscaloosa and Dallas newspapers might be my favorite pieces in all of my Buckeye stuff. Truly unique.

Comment 29 Jun 2015

I'm not sure what kind of rate he would have to hit at in order for that to be a viable option in a game setting. True Tresselball says there is no way in HELL you would risk giving them the ball at your 44 yard line on a 73 yard attempt. I get it, it is impreesive regardless. But other than for a potential game winner or to send it to OT, with time expiring with the kick, there is no way this is an option.

Comment 26 Jun 2015

Life-long Celts fan. It is going to pain me to have to root against him during his career. I think he is going to have a great one though. Here's to hoping Danny Ainge starts wheeling and dealing with all the flexibility he has, and maybe they will see each other in a Finals sometime in the near future.

I don't understand why people take issue with wearing jerseys. I have an entire section of my closet dedicated to all of my Buckeye gear, and I wear it all throughout the year. But on Saturdays in the fall, I wear a jersey. I enjoy having something that I only wear for 15 days out of the year, and something different than what I've been wearing all year. If that means I have "serious life issues" then so be it. I think I am pretty mentally sound, my dad as well. And every other person I know who wears a jersey on those days.

With that being said, when I went to buy a new jersey, I always wanted to get one in a number that was sure to be worn again by an impact player. My #5 jersey will be a 'kwon jersey next year. I might get a new one this year though, one with eight Buckeye leaves on the collar. You know, because Undisputed and all...
