US Army career officer - Medical Service Corps. Been a long road since I enlisted back in the early 80's as a Private; had a nice government all expenses paid trip to Saudia Arabia in 90-91 and felt the need to return to the deserts of Iraq in 2004.

Overall can't complain, but the Army sure has changed in 30 years.

Thanks LsjSnail for this video - hit the nail on the head of political correctness.

What does this say about that program?  Wow.  As much as I dislike scUM, I'd never thought it would have sunk to this depth of mediocrity that elite level coaches would take a pass to coach there.  I'm certain there are some great head coaches of smaller schools that could step up but scUM is failing to its own elitism and won't consider any but the highest profile names. They can't make the same Hoke type mistake back to back.

So what if we don't make the final four.  Only thing I care about is 4 more wins - Indy, scum, BIG Championship (over what looks like a very good Wiscy team) and a New Years Day bowl against, hopefully, a SEC team.  Would make for an OUTSTANDING season. Buckeye Fans need to appreciate what they are seeing this season.  Glad I'm a Buckeye!!

Na, I look at it as we are a deep team, and injuries are gonna happen, period.  The 2nd and even 3rd string need to be prepared to play at all times.  You never know when your number is going to be called.  I love we are 2-3 deep at every position.  That shows championship caliber coaching and recruiting.

Dontre Wilson can be permanently moved to #2 on depth chart.  To easy to bring down, dropped a for sure TD, two fumbles.  Marshall need to take all his carries.  He's been given all the chances to show he belongs.  Time to move on.

What a statement against the other BIG programs.  No wonder the BIG gets no respect.

<--- lifelong Bengals fan.  Feelings today: disappointed and disenfranchised.  The Bengals are a tease - they flirt with you, pay attention and then when you really start to fall, they drop you like a sack of potatoes.  I also root (have always rooted) for the Browns. My Dad was a huge Brown's fan (really more a Paul Brown fan).  I love seeing them turn it around.  Maybe they won't crap the bed in big games (and playoffs) like the Bengals.
