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?)

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

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?)
