I think our offense is so much more effective when running up tempo. JT seems to really thrive when the offensive play calls help to establish a rhythm and the Defense is caught off guard. I want to see more up tempo. 

It seems like we change our offensive scheme every week. I love the offense we saw against MSU. Up tempo, efficient, using the entire field and spreading the ball around to playmakers in space. We also used good blocking scheme and rolled JT out of the pocket more. It worked to near perfection. I'd like to see this style of offense more consistently.

How about partially then?

Home team alternates divisions each year. With new divisions, I'm not sure who would be home. Leaders (pauses to swallow puke that popped up) would have been home this year.

Awesome!  Congratulations. That's a thought process to go through.

I advocate that you name the baby Woody regardless of gender.

Great post, Awlin. 

I have to say it amazes me when I hear stories involving generations of servicemen and women. I'm glad your son is home safely. Thank you to your son, your father, and you for your years of service. 

Sports is such a great diversion from the trials and tribulations of our everyday lives. Sometimes it consumes me, especially Buckeye football.  But sports also provides a catalyst for strengthening family bonds. Whether attending/watching games with my dad or my son, or helping to coach my son's soccer team, my relationship with these two beautiful people is strengthened. I am grateful for this. 

I think it takes years and life experience to understand this. Although I understood it in part when I was younger, my understanding then pales in comparison to my understanding now. 

Thanks for your post and the reminder!

Links or it didn't happen

Pretty sweet (any way you look at it).  I've gotta to go buy my own, although I will have spousal approval which is important.

Criticism is fine. "Fire Herman", "Herman sucks", etc. etc. is not. There's a distinct difference. 

I agree with the original post. That kind of chatter is an embarrassment. In fact, we often visit other sites to get fan reaction and make fun of their over-reaction and unintelligent posts. So why do some of our fans do the same?  

Go ahead and criticize. But be informed and make an intelligent argument. Bashing does nothing but allow an outlet for frustration I guess if you need that, fine. But post it on ESPN rather than 11W. I like to think we, the 11W community, are better than that.

May I refer you to a magical site called Bleacher Report. It's full of idiotic slideshows that inflate your ego. Also included are stupid fans that have nothing better to contribute than F#%k Sparty. 

Stupid.
