Love'em both. Always will. Same to all Buckeyes.

Eddie was the back when I went all in, but... Can't deny the Zeke "what-have-you-done-for-me-lately" factor. And it was overwhelmingly badass.

Not a fan of his tendencies once things blur between discussions and arguments, but respect his attempts to keep it all somewhat enlightened discourse (i.e., he's not a flat-out trolling provocateur).

As for M Man and the rest of us, I'm a fan of keeping the conversations, handles, avatars, and whatnot wide open. I actually find them all amusing - we've all got a wacky story to tell.

Seconding this and want to drop a teaser about the little things. A recent, modest order arrived with a token keepsake that was... How do I put this: So fucking cool and totally unexpected.

These guys do it the right way on all levels.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

It just says "Student Appreciation Day." My kid is, in fact, a student. Never you mind about age, grade, or geography.

Can I see the trophy now!?

Gotta think not including the Costanza-Frogger footage was an intentional slight. Let's all pay homage:

I still think the MSU-away win was particularly impressive.

A lot did not play out according to pre-game narrative, but I felt this game actually had the best head-to-head matchup (pre-Bama*) not only with units, but also some quality individual match-ups (i.e., Grant v. Lippett).

I also considered weeping when Devin Smith hauled in two rainbow-magical passes, one for a bona fide "Shhhhhhhhhhhh!" TD.

*I actually think the best matchup was with Bama, but felt compelled to footnote and otherwise acknowledge such a fact lest the SEC feel slighted.

Didn't really even know what to do with myself when that happened. Watched it develop, but simply could not believe it. Kind of out-of-body and whatnot...

Oh yeah - except for the Spencer celebration. Pure. Joy.

Game: Tied for best or - at least - among closely held mental checklist of greatest games.

This particular video: As much as I've watched and re-watched the entire game, the tight shots of the Bama players stumbling, bumbling, going on tilt, and mostly getting smashed and/or blasted is particularly tasty.

The best part is the Bama fan recording it must have known this too because  he yells Touchdown shortly after Kiffin signals it and the ball is only halfway there.

Wonder if he could post Bama fancam of Zeke's 85-yarder...

Know what I didn't do when adjusting to raising a newborn? Volunteer for charity in shitty weather (or win championships, for that matter).
