Born in Not-Ohio, then moved up to the Cleveland-ish area when I was 4. I've been a Buckeye and Spur since forever.

I'm typically a 'quiet reader,' but this is absolutely silly. It's not about 'player safety,' but about keeping the SEC in power, which helps fund the World Wide Leader. Laughable as the rule seems to us, I wouldn't be surprised if it passes since it has Saban's say-so as the co-chairman with Bert.

We should just have a thread dedicated to Sammy Silverman and his amazing contributions. Just throwing that out there.

Today was my brother's wedding, and I was a bridesmaid. I think that answers the question. Cake was delicious, far too many pictures were taken, my feet are killing me, but it was a wonderful day.

At this time, I can't blame the voters. Alabama has their own stigma and will remain on top until they lose, Oregon has been impressive after Chip Kelly left, and Clemson has played better teams while winning than us. I am okay with this.

I couldn't believe it happened when I saw it. It was beautiful (though the scared punter is much funnier on my opinion.)

I do have to admit it was a highly entertaining game to watch, and didn't let down the hype. Devin Gardener is much better than I gave him credit for, and appears to be a smart QB with a much better arm than Denard.

Is there any way we can have meteor storm with the small pieces landing on the field and avoiding the crowd?

Comment 31 Aug 2013

How many huge piles and strip runs did we see this game compared to last year this time? Not perfect, mistakes abound, but better from where we were a year ago in that aspect. No, they aren't Alabama, but they're older, smarter, and more experienced than our DLine, and that's enough for the moment until our green DLine get used to being in the game.

As for the rest, I agree. Armani Reeves was less than impressive today, and it appeared we couldn't do anything with the way they were switching up Mack, which is frustrating. Hopefully, there will be less cramps next week as well.

We are wrapping up a majority of our tackles. That has to mean something, as compared to last year this time was kind of mess in that aspect. I thought Braxton's throwing mechanics, from what I could see, were better than they were last year.

As for the DLine, I don't know what you were expecting, seeing as most of those guys are rather green. We knew coming in that the defensive side of the ball wasn't going to be great, but would have growing pains throughout the season. Before the cramp, Shazier was holding that new DLine together by getting whomever broke through, and never really recovered afterwards.

At the end of the day, we won, doubled their score at the end, and all without our suspended as some major players (read Braxton and Shazier) getting cramps.

Just take a deep breath you guys. We needed to see this so we know what we need to improve on. We knew coming in that our D was thin due to the suspensions and the crampedimic didn't help our cause. Most of those guys have barely played a down of college ball, and games are different than practices and scrimmages.

What worried me was the OLine since they appeared very porous and soft, which didn't help Braxton all that much.
