I think you if you made everybody post their age when they answered this question we would see a correlation. For 2002 I remember watching the game like it was yesterday, and I was only 9 years old. I couldn't appreciate it to the extent that I could 2014. 14 was more enjoyable for me not only because of the season and beating bama but it was the fact that buckeye nation could stand tall middle fingers up to the rest of the world. after letting it all slip away in 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2013, 2014 was amazing for me. 

On the flip side of the coin, my dad, who is now 48, said 2002 was the the better for him. he didn't see a national championship for Ohio state until he was 35. He lived the cooper years and while I had 4 seasons of true 'we were so close' he had probably 10+. Curious to see if anybody that's more 'seasoned' agrees.

Definitely good points made. I'm not saying that the players we had were bad players, but you can't say they were the same as we had this past year.  OLine are comparable, running backs are comparable, but wrs are not. 

Philly/Devin ('13/'14)/Spencer does not even come close to Devin ('14/'15), Thomas, Marshall, Spencer. 

My biggest 'complaint' is that people say JT and cardale are so much better quarterbacks and throw the ball better when the weapons JT/Cardale had were much more dangerous than the weapons Braxton had.  We can argue this till we're blue in the face obviously so we will just have to wait and trust UFM.  It's my from the couch coaching opinion that Braxton is a true game changer every play and will be able to throw 3500+ run 1500+ with what we have coming back this coming year, and that's why I think he should start.

They'll battle splitting reps for the first few weeks then half way through Urban said he will name a starter to allow them to get all first team reps leading up to the opener.

I think Miami '01 is considered the best of all time because of what they did AFTER they won the national championship. 

'38 members of the team would be selected in the NFL Draft, 17 in the FIRST ROUND. As of 2013, they had earned an astonishing 43 trips to the Pro Bowl'

It's more than a normal jersey. It's stitched, buckeye leaves on the collar, actually good quality. takes about two weeks to get here but it's the same thing as a Nike jersey you buy from the store for $150

It normally takes a day or two for them to come out but check laxmagazine.com they normally have some good highlights of the games. I just looked and nothing yet but tomorrow there should be.

I am with you on the zero health considerations

Double wrapped, extra white rice, double barbacoa, two scoops of tomato salsa, lots of sour cream, cheese, guac and lettuce.  

The real way to eat chipotle is to eat half the burrito normally, then dump the second half out, eat the delicious tortilla and then eat the remaining contents with chips.  oh wow.

not sure how possibly missing out on the number one recruit in the country can be seen as a good thing. especially when he's expressed previous interest in us before.

This was a great year for chalk. I bet next year isn't so predictable.

8/8 Elite eight and  4/4 Final four, I'm 100% on ESPN and ranked 811 in the world with 1130 points.  Pretty excited about it.  I have UK over Duke in the championship.  

Comment 14 Mar 2015

My best food challenge victory was I ate 4 chipotle burritos and bag of chips in under 20 minutes... 18:51 to be exact.  If anybody can top that I would be very impressed seeing as how hard it was for me.
