Lurker since 2011 before finally signing up for an account. I post rarely, but check the site several times a day even when football and basketball are in the offseason. (OhioState Compulsive Disorder?)

So it's NOT photoshopped?  I've seen this photo several times and just assumed it was a photoshopped joke that I wasn't understanding.

Survivors: No, not the crappy "reality" show - the S on the end makes all the difference.  Synopsis: "Set in the present day, the series focuses on a group of ordinary people who survive the aftermath of a devastating viral pandemic – referred to as "European flu" – which kills most of the world's population [...] The series sees the characters struggling against terrible dangers in a world with no society, no police and no law, led by the de facto matriarch of the group, Abby Grant."

Hell On Wheels: A series about "the Union Pacific Railroad and its surveyors, laborers, prostitutes, mercenaries, and others who lived, worked and died in the mobile encampment called "Hell on Wheels" that followed the railhead west across the Great Plains. The story focuses on Cullen Bohannon, a former Confederate soldier (Anson Mount) who, while working as foreman and chief engineer on the railroad, initially attempts to track down the Union soldiers who murdered his wife and young son during the American Civil War."  The sometimes tense partnership between former slaveholder Bohannon and an emancipated slave played by Common is just one of many interesting dynamics in this.

For comedy series: Better Off Ted, Arrested Development, and Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Ah, I just realized why I was confused.  This must be counting FGs toward red zone efficiency.

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
