Birmingham, AL here. Right dab smack in the middle of the Alabama / Auburn shinanigans.

The last 4 months have been incredible. I don't even have to say much at work. My Ohio State flag that hangs over my desk and my various OSU polos I wear does most of the talking. I just keep the same shitty grin on my face constantly now.

I beliebe you are the first to mention this Andy, and it gave me chills.

HOW FIRM THY FRIENDSHIP!

Keep fighting Bass. We are family here. We are here for you.

I tend to agree, I think this matchup cuold play in the favor of the Bucks. OSU over the past few years has always played their best basketball when they can run and be athletic in the transition game. With Scott and Russ on the floor, the pressure defense does not intimidate me that much.

Best way to prepare for a defense like this? Have 7 or 8 defenders playing the scout team D. You can never simulate the intensity with 5 guys in practice. So you add a few more bodies out there, to literally give the effect of "Dang, these guys are everywhere"

Agree Hove.

Living in Birmingham, AL, the Sugar Bowl was so much sweeter to me. Hearing the Bamers talk for months and months about how we did not stand a chance. It was a surreal moment watching Zeke spint those 85 yards. An outer body experience almost. It happened in slow motion. Those 85 yards have hands down been the sweetest college football moment of my life.

I am married to a Bama grad (which by the way, God bless these tan southern sundress wearing women).(Another side note, we would have been in the Super Dome had it not been for a last minute illness and change of plans) Since I already had been standing for most of the game, when Zeke hit the hole, I  sprinted behind the couch where my wife could not see me. ( I was trying to somewhat not rub it in, as she has always been classy to the Buckeyes as well). I silently jumped up and down with both hands raised as high as they could get in the air. I ran into the bedroom, shoved a pillow in my face, and screamed as loud as I possibly could. Calmly walked back into the living room, and remained standing for quire some time with both hands still raised in the air.

What a moment. I love you all Buckeye Nation.

If I have learned anything watching March Madness over the years, it is this: Teams with one star player can make huge runs. (see UConn with Napier in 2014, and even Kemba Walker in '11)

Yes, this team has largely underachieved this year. But yes, we have a dominant scoring guard in Russell, who can single handily take over a game, and ultimately take over a tournament.

Anything can happen in March.

He reminds me of TJ Yeldon.

Cosmo, enough with the SEC references! I just spent an hour reading your B1G East vs SEC West debate. I can't handle any more.

I was just about to say, I may have gotten the biggest smile after Clay said that... So. Freaking. Sweet.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Not sure how his coach can call this an "accident"... There have been what, at leat 3 times on video of him doing it? Get real clown. That is no accident.

Agree, next time he "accidently" pokes someone in the eye, I wouldn't mind seeing someone "accidently" have a knee jerk reaction with a shin to the sack....

Keep up the good work Jason.

Sites that require a monthly fee do not provide half the quality that 11w gives their readers, while doing it all for free.

Your efforts are not underappreciated.

I mean how many dudes are 6'6" 235 lbs and run a sub 4.4 forty. What? TP and Megatron?

I am all about being a competitor and believing in your abillities (to want to compete at QB), but damn. The amount of money Gibson could make in the NFL playing WR is insane (assuming he can catch. Or run routes) Especially with what the NFL is becoming, elite WRs are becoming more and more valuable. I am a competitor too, but if someone told me a switch in my career could pay me millions, I would ask where to sign.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

If the last 3 or 4 seasons have taught us anything, it is that this offense will always need more than 1 QB. To my knowledge, we have not had a starting QB play every game in the last few years. Just the nature of a duel threat QB, guys get dinged up. Having two (or 3) guys ready to go at all times is probably needed for this offense, and it won't leave us saying "oh crap" if someone misses a few series/games.

Jalin has proven he can catch the deep ball as well. The dude is fearless going over the middle. He made some big time catches where he had ti high point the ball, knowing it was likely he was going to get hit by a saftey. Jalin could move into a more outside (Z) role, and Brax could play more of the true slot. Or, vise versa. Good problem to have I suppose!

Or the fumble on the last drive of the game. Chris Black caught the ball, turned up field, got his tits rocked, and fumbled. They officials some how ruled him down? I thought originally they said it was an imcomplete pass, which (although would have also been worng) would have made more sense. Instead they ruled him down, and did not review.

Oh well. Go Bucks!

So glad you mentioned Corey Smith. May have not been a huge factor on the offensive side of the ball, but that dude BALLED OUT on special teams!! All about heart and effort out there on kickoff, and he was a huge spark! Made several big plays, and brought some great energy on the field!
