His annoying bias for Notre Dame.

Which is actually rather funny because when he coached there, he always talked up whoever they were playing that week and downplayed ND's chances.

"Well, Little Sisters of the Blind and Flatulent have some amazing skill position players. We're gonna have a tough time this week."

Been to Vegas twice, and it was awesome both times.

First time, November 2002, in the middle of Ohio State's national title run. They had the OSU-Illinois OT thriller on in the Keno lounge at the MGM Grand, and I was losing my mind. Guessing some of the patrons thought I had bet my first-born on the game. Also went clubbing at the Rio, and sweet baby Jesus, the eye candy there...

Second time, September 2004. Got married. Yes, I knew her before we got out there, and no, not by Elvis. Caught Blue Man Group when it was at Luxor, and Second City at the Flamingo. Awesome time, awesome city.

So we beat Alabama because they were sooo tired after playing such a daunting schedule?  Even though they and we had the same amount of time to rest and prep?

I know jack about UFC, but if it was regular boxing, Sugar Ray Leonard in his prime would have dispatched Norris easily.

Back in 1990, my parents made the decision to move to Florida from Ohio (being almost 13 at the time, I was less than enthusiastic about it). My father was attending a local technical school at the time after a mining accident put him out of that industry for good, and he had a good friend from school who was a rabid Buckeye fan and also had leukemia. As we were preparing for the move, Dad's friend took a turn for the worse, and it was really only a matter of time. So Dad went to his friend's house for what would be their final visit. The friend's mother asked who Dad would be rooting for in Florida, since this was before the days of BTN or even ESPN Game Plan, and we would be unlikely to catch many Ohio State games. Dad, half-joking, said he would probably end up rooting for Florida State, since he'd always had an admiration for Bobby Bowden. His friend turned to him and, serious as the disease that was killing him, said "You'd better not!" So Dad took that as a challenge not to change his allegiance, and he never did.

So that's the story about my father nearly-but-not-really becoming a Seminole fan.

If we see production from the wideouts on par with last season's, you could see Zach Smith move into the co-OC role if Beck and/or (God forbid) Warriner move on.
