With all due respect, I don't know that the team built up the expectations as much as the media. There are at least 15 teams that should be telling themselves they can win it all each year. However, it wasn't the players that voted OSU as the first unanimous #1 in the preseason AP poll. It wasn't the players on Mike & Mike (or insert show here) talking about how they could be the best ever before the opening kickoff. 

Yes, in some ways, this season was disappointing, but that's because of what COULD have been. What DID happen was stomping Michigan's collective dicks in the dirt in their own building then beating ND on a national stage to finish the season with 12 damn wins. That, in no way, sucks.

Great stuff (though that's not shocking in any way)!

Next year might feel as different as any season of Buckeye football that I can remember. Between the almost unbearable weight of obscene expectations, and losing roughly 75 players, there should be a bunch of young, hungry (c'mon NCAA, feed the kids) players looking to cement their spots. 

Is it September yet?

If you're a hockey fan, The Game by Ken Dryden is a wonderful book.

Here to defend last year's top-5 finish. Posting in this manner all but assures I'll be in the bottom 5.

So if you knew then what you know now, would you still have written that article? Perhaps I've watched too many debates this year.

We never should have hired a coach who self-identifies as a loser and requests that others kill him.

For yet another year, I wholeheartedly accept this challenge. I also will not drink any beers, delicious as they can be, which are brewed north of toledo and south of Canada this week.

Gas can exploded when he was a kid and was burned on his neck and chest. Lots of skin grafts since led to how he looks now.

I'm no fan of Dunham, at all, but him ignoring Rece's requests to speed things along so he could get all his bits in was quite annoying.
