I've seen stadiums on or near water many times. There are several within a 3 hour drive of central Ohio. Yet something about the feel and setting of Husky Stadium made it much different than others. Have to say that all the scarlet and gray that day made it even better. Sorry you weren't there to take it all in.

I believe you're being modest, Seattle. The stadium there at Washington, from the view of the lake, to the amazingly friendly fans inside and outside the stadium. They didn't have much to cheer about (thanks to TOSU) outside of a young and promising Jake Locker, but what a venue. Cal's stadium in Berkeley was nice, as you could settle in on the hillside and easily watch the game. Still not as nice as Washington's.

Thank you, Knarcisi, Benz and Holy. Using a timeout eliminates all the challenges concerning missing helmets, etc. As well as any excuse for playing a young man that has a head injury. Brady Hoke is ultimately responsible, but every coach on that staff shares responsibility for player safety.

Happy Birthday. I hope someone goes out of their way to make you feel special today.

I was never one to swell with conference pride, even in the midst of all the recent SEC chanting. However, watching IU yesterday I couldn't help but feel good for them and the B1G. I'm not to the point of chanting B1G! B1G! yet still it was a great showing by the conference.

I watched expecting IU to fold. They never did and Coleman was great. Marking the day that I actually enjoyed watching IU football.

I have parked at this same church for many years. It is a bit of a walk, but as stated on the way out not at all congested.

Terrible excuse for being a quitter no doubt. Yet recruiting the players that can potentially make you rich doesn't determine one way or another if you respect, value and/or care about them as people. Coach Sark has shown much love to all his players, it's a shame that such a label would be thrown around so carelessly and attached to him.

This time Saturday evening I won't have a voice.

7 am flight to Baltimore tomorrow. Trying to find a way to be even a little bit productive here at work today. Not doing too well with that part.

Man I love this site!

Enjoy the trip, Chitown. I had the opportunity to watch Super Bowl XL with Waikiki Beach at my back. Since I had no rooting interest in the game (Sterlers vs Seahawks) I wasn't as locked in on the game as usual. The scenery around me made that not a bad thing at all. I'm guessing that watching The Game in that atmosphere might be as close to the perfect sports moment as I could get. Insert extreme jealousy right here! I hope you get to celebrate a huge Buckeye victory.

Was there in 93 (bad bad day) and I was the loudest person in the stadium after being nailed with a gallon of mustard covered hot dog. Didn't like my OSU gear.

I was going to say yes, I can easily imagine going to college and not going to my classes. Yet you said playing football, not failing miserably in your attempt to play collegiate baseball. So I guess I really can't identify.

Excellent question, my guess would be that the interim or new coach would recognize the need for designated team leadership and name captains immediately. (or Hoke will just name Peppers as  captain 4 times on his way out the door)
