Boy, I'm tempted, too. I have been going to Ohio State games for years, and I have never (before that game) seen Ohio State lose in person without my wife present (we lost both games she attended with me: against Florida in the BCS Championship and at USC - she is banned).
Thanks for all the hard work!
I almost let this go, but as a biologist I couldn't: that's actually a sea lion, not a seal, as told by the brown color, snout shape, and external ears.
That means he has a smokin' hot wife.
I agree with that completely. I just think that if you get someone to run the athletic department like an athletic department, and put a good product on the field (or court, or what-have-you) that people want to watch, the problem is solved.
They'll get good PR by having good teams. Not sure how a PR firm assists with that.
I am glad I was wrong.
What the hell did I just watch? That was craziness!
I think we have potential to win out with Cardale. The guy is an elite athlete, but he hasn't had significant game reps. We just need to get by Wisconsin next weekend. If we can do that, then the coaching staff has a good amount of time to prep a Cardale-led offense for whatever bowl/play-off scenario we encounter.
Then I will take credit for our win. Things were looking a little dire while I was flying yesterday. We took a moderate lead when I landed in Denver, then extended the lead when I got to a television. You're welcome.
The playoff games are bowl games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_Football_Playoff
You probably won't see this, but I was on Southwest which has in-flight television on personal electronic devices, but they don't have ABC or ESPN. I watched the West Virginia/Iowa State game during the flight, and got The Game updates during that. We arrived in Denver early (just after halftime), and my co-worker (also an OSU graduate, took a different flight) had a spot saved at a bar at the airport with the game on.
I did that. I met and married a woman here in southern California. Her family roots are Michigan. She was, purportedly, not a college football fan. She has attended some games and OSU functions with me, even wearing an OSU jersey. She admitted recently that she secretly roots for Michigan during The Game. :(
Yes, we are still married...
I ran 17 hilly miles this morning. Still an hour until the gluttony begins. I am famished. Happy Thanksgiving all!
I think they should hire an actual honest-to-goodness wolverine as head coach of that team up north (it doesn't merit capital letters). I would wager a large weasel with a bad attitude would do the best coaching job they've seen there in awhile, and you have this additional bonus: mascot and coach in one!
