Not that I know anything in particular, but I imagine that a loss like that could possibly cement some recruits that were leaning. If you were on that sideline and seriously considering OSU, there is a possibility that something clicked and you thought "That's it. I'm in. Nobody does that to us and I'm going to do something about it." I really hope there were a few guys that felt that burning humiliation and realized "Oh my God. I'm a Buckeye, and I'm not going to take this shit."

Sometimes losses like this just further the resolve in people and drive them to redemption. In the case of recruits, If they felt like even the slightest PART of this program before/during, then it's possible that loss galvanized it. Of course, the opposite could be true for some. But a recruit that commits after last night has that innate quality that makes a future big-time sonofabitch for an opponent to deal with. Here's to hoping that a few of them had this self-realization.

Awesome! I literally JUST finished collecting the entire Conan The Barbarian comic book series. All 275 issues from 1970-1993. And the Mad Max quote goes on the VISITORS tunnel entrance.

I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of 100%, but then it may be a major NCAA violation bc who the hell really knows what's a violation and what isn't anymore?

Some of my personal faves from today's game:

1. "OSU has had great players for...30 years."  (Uhhh. 30 years, huh? That's it?)

2. "Ohio State hasn't gone without a TD in the 1st half since October of 1911."

3. "Navy's Defense was ranked 80th in the NFL last season."

Right. And the disturbing part is that the other Bosco guys in that pic will probably play at least 1-AA football on scholly.

I am deeply honored to be 31 years to the day older than 11 Warriors. I always knew you were a Leo too, 11W.

Interesting list. Azteca may be the worst place on Earth for a visiting team, regardless of sport. Serious air pollution at a serious elevation with seriously dangerous fans throwing human waste on visiting players. Eff that.

That second tweet. Wow. It's been a minute since I've laughed that hard.
