Ramzy, thanks for pointing out this:

Each time receivers jogged back to the line after failing to secure a catchable ball, Barrett would single them out, put his hands on their shoulder pads and visibly give them encouragement. He never sulked, got up slowly from being tackled or dared to exhibit any visible frustration - all of which can be contagious. Instead he stayed even and never let his confidence down. I'll do what quarterbacks are supposed to do. You go be great.

This is how you respond properly. I'm glad that some one recognized it.

Don’t forget the one factor that we may not be able to do anything about. Whoever controls the narrative controls the perception. Whoever controls the perception controls gate and polls. Whoever controls the gate and polls, controls recruiting. Rinse and repeat. When ESPN was discarded by the B1G for the BTN, ESPN positioned themselves to control SEC and college football narrative. It is a self-realizing philosophy. The SEC goes from just a less important conference to being the best conference in college football. That perception is now controlling gate, polls and recruiting. Actually, it is quite the strategy.

I can honestly say, every aspect of our team was sub par. The defense was a little less sucky than the other units but, this was a loss that can be shared equally by the offense, defense, special teams, and coaches. We can thank our lucky stars that we have Kent State next and then a bye. With all respect for Kent State, use that as a contact practice and spend the rest of your time working out the bugs.

And to blow some sunshine up yer butts, at least we didn't have any serious injuries....

Shelly Meyer - I know you are watching. I can't stand up multiple times, I can stand a limited amount of times and I have difficulty climbing. I don't use a wheelchair but I have taken advantage of the special seating (really nice seats in 1A, 3A, 3AA, 5A, or 5AA, no...not really). So here is my solution. You encourage all the folks you want to stand, maybe the entire game. Rather than me sitting there looking at people's butts for the entire game, let me use your VIP suite. Seems fair to me.

Chicagobuckeye, you tried but it is hard to argue with stupid. As you suggested, I am the veteran, who is also disabled who goes to games. To the caring individual who suggested that disabled people need to sit in the "disabled section", a little hint. It is right behind the band and it is made for wheelchairs. During my recover and therapy, I did the wheelchair thing. However, if you are ambulatory, but disabled, there isn't a place there for you. My own particular disability (destruction and reconstruction of both patellar tendons) prevents me from climbing stairs, getting up, and seriously limits my ability to stand for prolonged periods. The stadium offers seats for "my kind" on the closed end of the stadium; seats that allow a minimum of climbing. Fortunately, since I am an alumni, I only get tickets to one game per year, so I don't have to contend with the oafs who stand during most or the entire game. I am glad  that they give me the privilege of sitting for three hours and staring at their behinds. I usually don't bother asking them to sit down because I feel that I am in some way diluting the spirit of the game. I guess I am asking you to quit trying to wrap a general lack of courtesy and empathy in team spirit. Stand up, raise hell, and then sit down. You can scream sitting down as well as standing. I know, I do.

I have been told that there is a bottle of something in the gif, but I haven't seen it.

They got 15 minutes with me. After that, mute comes on, TBDBITL goes on the sound system, and I control the instant replay through my DVR.

And Formula 1's Felipe Massa was not decapitated at the German Grand Prix...at least the Onion is funny.

Cuts me to the bone. I was amazed that his inspiration was Jonathon Winters. Growing up in the 60s Jonathon Winters was the reason for allot of my smart assed, class clown behavior. They talk about comic genius. No one could hold a candle to him. RIP Buddy.

B1G Network had the 2002 game on yesterday. It was so great to see the players again on that team. It was especially sad to see the drive and determination of #13 knowing what was coming for him. Wanted to reach thru the TV, grab him by the throat, and tell him...DO NOT DO STUPID! Man, what could have been.

2 Illinois tix. Game may suck, but nighttime is the right time in the Shoe. Also, beats midday in early September for comfort.

Friend in the Bus got VT, so will see that one too.

I live in Montgomery, Alabama. The hellish no-zone that exists between Tuscaloosa and Auburn, Alabama.

In the run up to the championship, for the first time ever, every tOSU game was televised. Every GD game. So I could have watched every one at home. But I decided to go out to California because, hey, if you are going to miss a game, it might as well be Purdue, right. I was sitting in a hotel room, listening to the non-televised game (there) on internet radio. This is why I drink.

That weekend, I did get to see a new driver at Fontana get his first NASCAR win. Guy named Johnson or something.....dipstick burned out his engine celebrating.
