Believe that photo was taking by a photographer from the Detroit Free Press.  A few years ago, you could order prints of various sizes online from their photo store.  Not sure if that's still the case or not.

Yesterday made me appreciate last season even more....what a ride.  Winning a championship is so incredibly difficult.  Winning back to back championships is damn near impossible with all the distractions and the target on your back.  The more prepared team won yesterday...had the Buckeyes pulled it out, I'd still be disappointed.   They've still got two games this season.  I'm really going to enjoy seeing if Urban is as good of a coach as everyone hopes he is.

Agree with all of this.  I'd really like them to use the TE as a receiver more.  In regards to Cardale, it just looks like he's thinking too much and is terrified to just cut it loose and sling it.  He's constantly double-clutching/pumping which to me means he's not confident in his reads or is ultra worried about making a mistake.  He also has developed a tendency to throw off his back foot/just use his upper body which explains why so many throws are high or under-thrown.

I agree.  However, what really troubles me is the drop-off between the offense with JT and the version without JT.  It looks like two different teams with the "JT-less" version looking borderline incompetent.  Makes what happened last year that much more incredible.  I just don't get the difference between the 2015 version of Cardale and the one that lead the Bucks to the championship last year.

Mack, Bitonio and Thomas are decent but Greco and Schwartz are below average.  To make matters worse, I feel that Thomas' best days are behind him.  The offensive line, which was touted as one of the league's best at the beginning of the season, is among the league's worst based on YPA and YPG.  They've also given up the second most sacks in the league.  I'm a Browns fan so I've been conditioned to try and see any glass as half-full.  Unfortunately, this OL is far from solid.

Nice story about Booker and his father.  If he gets a chance to play on Saturday, I'll be cheering a little louder when he makes a big play.

I agree that this NI team is no slouch, but I think you could post something similar following any close game this season.  OSU was/is the preseason #1.  OSU is going to get every team's best effort and every team is going to be a little more amped/focused when they play the defending national champs.  

There is a huge target on the backs of these Buckeyes and it'll be interesting to see how they deal with it the rest of the way.  Will they let the pressure get to them or will they rise above it to become one of the elite teams in CFB history?  It's going to be a fun ride to watch it play out.

How Lee was able to avoid drilling the fullback is amazing to me.  The ability to find the football that fast is what separates good from great linebacker play.  Awesome!

Nancy's Diner in Grafton, OH.  Delicious scratch made breakfast.

If Weber had no idea then I agree, this is a bad look and I feel awful for him.  However, maybe Weber was made aware of the situation leading up to NSD and he still chose to come to OSU.  Perhaps his tweet reflects how close he felt to a member of the coaching staff and it's hitting him harder than he expected.  Maybe I'm just a "glass half-full" kind of guy?
