Any chance Spielman wants to coach LBs?

Hopefully Strong to USF falls through.

My Dad. Being from Toledo, there were other influences that several of my family members succumbed too, namely TTUN and ND. However, it's always been Scarlet and Gray for me. The last game my Dad got to see was the '02 NC. He passed that following summer from a sudden, unexpected heart attack way too young. To this day, anytime the '02 version of The Game or the NC is replayed, I get choked up. Same reason why I get choked up watching '14 CFP. My dad should have been here to watch it with me and wasn't.

I tell you what. That 2pt conversion was huge too, just for confidence purposes down the stretch. Play get's overlooked, mostly because of the play that preceded it, but the Buckeyes also made it look easy.

Just watching highlights of that game, you can tell Bama hadn't been hit like that in a long time. They came out flying, but in the end, the Buckeyes were the faster, more physical team.

And that Urban has lost a TOTAL of 5 games in his 5 years...

Good point, and 3 of the 5 losses were in either warm weather (Orange Bowl, '14 VT), or in a dome (MSU).

I remember the special on it, and once they pointed out the patterns it was pretty noticeable.  IIRC, there were 2 blocks that never had a Wammy on them, but were also the largest sums ($5000 and a spin). There were a few times late in his run, when he was getting tired or off his game, and missed his desired blocks, and he was clearly shaken up by it because he almost lost it all.
