Yea-i think Dabo and Clemson is 3rd, with FSU 4th.  After that, it's a very significant drop off.

If it's the good guys, it's got to be hard for Akers to not join in if he hasn't already. Running behind the #1 T and #1 G has it's advantages, and Moretti is no slouch either.

Yea it's a fun game, and actually pretty simple once you learn it. I've always wanted to learn Craps. I tried it once and lost $40 in about 38 seconds and that was it. 

Another thing that pisses some people off is playing Blackjack against what the "book" says. I get you are playing the odds, but sometimes I get a feeling, and don't follow the book. Then if I win/lose, the person/people after me will get pissed when they lose. My wife likes to play, and doesn't nearly know what she should do and when all the time. We were at a $10 table and a guy was getting verbally pissed with her. I finally said "buddy, she's playing with her money, not yours. Her goal is to win, not to make sure you win." I'm not a confrontational person at all, but after a couple drinks and him being a douche bag, I had enough.

I've been asking that very question myself, and on Tims mailbag a couple weeks ago (which he graciously answered). What would lead him to step aside? This program is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.  Hopefully, he's as competitive as we all think he is and won't resign until he passes Saban for NCs.

Not really a surpise. He's earned the rest. 

Side note-anyone else think he was more effective when he was carrying a bit more weight? I know it's probably better for his longevity (read:knees), but I thought he was more effective in the post when he had the extra bulk.

I get the schedule argument, and it's a real one. However, you have to look at each game individually in my mind. And when you do that, it's hard to say the Buckeyes won't be the best team in the stadium each week, outside of maybe Norman which might be a push.

and this isn't Wisky of a few years ago. PSU has no QB with any experience and their OL hasn't figured out how to block Temple yet. Sparty is a revenge game (see:2014). The Game is the The Game-Urban will have them ready.  

If Bama can regularly go through the SEC with no or 1 loss each and every year, there's no reason to think the Buckeyes can't do the same.

I learned Pai Gow for the same reason-to play all night without going broke-and getting the drinks.  I'm hooked forever now, because the wife and I were down on Fremont St and I think we were at Fitzgeralds (might be something else now) playing $5 Pai Gow, and it had a side bet that paid extra based on how he good your hand was. I can't remember the minimum qualifying hand, but I hit a Royal Flush. Now, there was a wild card included, so they called the pit boss over to rule on it. A guy at the table was VERY vocal that there was nothing saying a card couldn't be a wild card. Pit Boss said pay him, and that was 125:1 odds on the royal flush. Of course, I only bet $1 on that side bet, but still a quick $125.

He's got to come back to Hockeytown when Holland decides to hang it up, right? 

And now I have another reason to make a winter trip to Vegas, to catch the Wings. 

The other reasons? Well, everything else...

Your formula is a big reason I am so optimistic heading into the season. 

-JTs first full, healthy offseason as the #1 QB

-an OL that on paper should have a higher ceiling than the previous couple years, which were pretty good lines, but did have chinks

-I was very adamant heading into the season last year, really right after Braxton officially declared his move to WR, that a problem could be getting too cute on offense, forcing the ball to certain players to make sure they get their touches. That happened last year. This year, with so many unproven guys, hopefully there is no predetermined read during JTs presnap routine. Get the ball to whoever is open, doesn't matter who it is and how many times they've touched it. 

-This offense should score enough early in the year (including in Norman) to keep the team in ball games while the D gets it's bearings. If this team is sitting at 1 or no losses in late October, look out.
