OSU players took their fair share of hits in that game, but it definitely looked worse than it was because Marshall's helmet kept flying off, which was more of an equipment issue than the force of the hits.  What really sold me that the OSU v2014 was the perfect blend of speed and strength was the display again Oregon.  They were able to keep up with everyone, and by the end of the third quarter, the OU players were visibly hurting on the sidelines.

This picture is amazing. I was trying to figure out yesterday if the pylon is inside or outside of the out-of-bounds line. In this picture, its obviously out. The ball hit the front of the pylon as far as I could see yesterday. Hitting the front of the pylon would not actually mean the ball crossed the plain anywhere in bounds. That would only be the case if the pylon was inside of the out-of-bounds line. Any rules experts out there?  I know we won the game, and I honestly thought the refs got this one right, but I think this is a flaw in the rules.

I'm almost positive Troy Smith was in his first year at Glenville in 2002. 

Edit: Second year, he started there halfway through his sophomore year.

First off, Semper Fi. 

Secondly, does AFN show Ohio State games regularly?  I'm in Bahrain till the first bye week. I'll be able to catch all of the October games in San Diego, but I'll be in Oki I for the last part of the season. What's the best way to make sure you don't miss a game OCONUS?

I would argue the military is on the leading front of sexual assault policy. In recent years, they have brought sexual assault to the number one problem that needs to solved ahead of alcohol abuse/DUIs and more dated issues such as hazing, substance abuse and others. One of the issues with sexual assault is that victims often don't come forward. The military has multiple ways to report sexual assault that were put in place to protect victims' rights, careers and dignity. With all the attention that has been brought to this topic, numbers were going to go up as more victims come forward. The CMC told this to the President several years ago.

I'm not buying the "need a win over OSU/MSU/ND. I think 8 wins, especially with a bowl victory, keeps Hoke in AA. Improvement and lowered expectation combined with the reluctance to have another regime change will provide some job security.

Props to Minnesota for sporting all three colored tops in the cover. Id have it higher on the list. 

I'd expect Purdue's guide to come out looking like an engineering manual, but Wisconsin's let me down.

Maybe this speaks to my level of reading, but I just read the word "malaise" more times than I had previously in my life.  Strong use of the word "mire" as well.  This is why I don't bother reading Bleacher Report articles anymore.

Got that, thanks.  Don't know how that person knows me.
