Sorry everyone about letting Oregon get out to a 7-0 lead, I had forgotten to put on my lucky shirt (had to dig it out of the hamper.) To make up for it though, when we had turnover issues early in the 2nd half, I took off my unlucky pants.
I'm the opposite, this makes me want to invite them into NATO
Seems like that could only have been Coach Coombs
Ah, I just realized why I was confused. This must be counting FGs toward red zone efficiency.
My favorite part was how LawTide called Josh Perry Santa Claus at the 4:45 mark. I hope that nickname sticks.
Does that say we were 100% in the red zone in both defense and offense?
Great photoshop work! I'd love to see someone make a centaur from this Cardale pic:
Yes, here's the gif in reverse. Absolutely hilarious!
I loved that line. I was just about to paste it into a comment when I saw you'd beat me to it.
I second that, Hamby. I went to a game between two SEC teams in 2006 and while tailgating, one of my gracious hosts suggested it was one of the best college football atmospheres one could ever see. I remember responding "Well, I went to Ohio State," and as I heard those words roll out of my mouth I thought, "Wow, I just sounded like a smug d-bag." We all know how that season ended for us (thanks Urban), and of course, the superstitious nature of fandom has always made me feel that my hubris was to blame.
So while enjoying last night's victory and gearing up for another big challenge, let's try not to become the kind of fans that we hate from other teams. Pride comes before a fall, after all. 'Bama got their turn last night, just like we did in the 2006 season. Let's win the next game and then become magnanimous overlords. (Because being magnanimous can be a troll move all its own, mwahaha ;)
I agree with most of the other posters that there's zippo chance of an NFL head coach turning down TTUN's wheelbarrows of cash to accept a non-head coaching position with the good guys, but I'm grateful for the chance to bask in the sheer awesomenity of that what-if for a moment. I'd have to go all Noah and build an ark for all the vulvarine tears.
If that happened (it won't), their best option would really be to just to march out onto the USS Missouri and announce their unconditional surrender to Ohio State. To be followed by Jim Tressel taking up smoking a corncob pipe and administering the Buckeye occupation of Ann Arbor.
But it's also satisfying to laugh at your rival every week of the season, rather than just the one week where you're the one delivering their beating. I'd like every football team in the country to experience the fun of demolishing TTUN. That is my Christmas wish.
I hadn't heard about this before, but wow is Chad Alvarez a disgraceful shart. I absolutely agree with the comments by the district attorney and the judge in that article. Odd that Chad's apology in the article was to people who got mad at him rather than to the creature whose insides he boiled while it was alive. smdh
That's why we have to beat them on 1 Jan, and create a self-reinforcing dynamic in our favor
and prepare a batch to send to Tuscaloosa :-)
It's been way too long since I've eaten a buckeye. If there any leftovers, feel free to ship 'em here to Virginia.
This is one of the reasons I fell in love with 11W several years ago: people who know what the F they're talking about (does not include me), people being witty without being d!cks to each other (on a good day might include me), and top notch writing staff (where else will you get to read a ranking of the state fish of the Big Ten during the offseason doldrums?)
Which sounds awfully similar to this team's biggest asset: cojones
My thoughts exactly! I mean, how could they snub Jameis?
I've been in Arlington for the past decade, but just never got into the 'Skins. Probably because being a Browns fan is more than enough heartache for one man. Which, like you, makes me grateful to have the best damn college team in the land to root for.
