Umm, were you watching the same game I was last week?  That O'Connor kid looks like he's ready to step right in with very little drop-off.  They have a very good history of developing QBs.

I'm totally on-board with the OP's sitting/standing beef, but I'm disappointed that he was rude, IMO, to the PSU folks.  They may not be our MAIN rivals, but they are certainly rivals.  

You don't get a special black-out theme for Rutgers or even Iowa, know what I mean?  They've beaten us a fair share over the years, and in my opinion are tied with Wisconsin and MSU as our second level rivals in the conference.

OP had a chance to be classy and missed it.

It seems crazy to think they might be, for the reasons you give, but we KNOW there are winning plays we saw many times last year that just aren't being called.  How about that counter play where the QB follows Zeke outside the tackle, or like someone said, Braxton throwing from the Wildcat, etc.  

Late in the Indiana game, we shut it down essentially and played Tressel-ball to drain the clock.  If we hadn't, that's where I think we would have seen some of the "money" plays they've been saving.  

I agree that it's super-risky, but I do think that's part of what's been happening.  The other parts, I'm afraid, are less easily fixable.

Finebaum's not talking about who should be ranked #1.  Definitely it should be us.   But what Finebaum's saying. which is what the OP posted, is that OSU is historically, epically good.  And Pfaff and Fromthe18 are making the point that it's WAYYYY too early to start with that stuff.  And I agree with them.  Stacked OSU teams have blown it against inferior competition many, many, many....many times.  

Let's enjoy this stacked squad but not get too far ahead of ourselves please.

Just tuning in here, busy week.  Haven't seen any of these yet, nor read about them.   I love the narrator, sweet low voice and so smooth and chill.  Reminds me of old nature shows for some reason.  Pardon me for asking what's prob already been asked, but who is he?

Uhh, I'm sure at least some of those 'exotic' locales beyond even 9Route and MMan are also bogus.  Why not use something like Google Analytics to see more legitimate cities and countries that people are visiting from?

She certainly used to be, seems she might have physically peaked earlier than most.  I'm sure she's still gorgeous on the inside.

Let's start with: I love this series and a big thank you for that!  But 1970 National Champion in what, dominoes?  B/c the Bucks were #2 in the end of season coaches poll, #5 in the AP and #5 in the UPI.  We all hate it when other schools claim bogus championships, so let's not be hypocrites here, ok?

Here's a pretty interesting and unbiased look at who should really claim various titles:

OSU broke Alabama's spell of invincibility, and perhaps even their reign at the top of the recruiting heap, but I do not believe they broke the program in the way that such a strong phrase would imply.

Comment 16 Jul 2015

OK now, to be fair, if someone did that with OSU stuff, you'd be super supportive.  Am I the only one who thinks this guy would be a fun dad?  Dorky? sure, but fun dorky.  Shows signs of great concentration, patience and attention to detail.  Clearly has an excellent board, role-playing and video game collection, and seems to have a sense of humor to boot.  So, here's to you, Bama Ring Head guy.  Sorry not sorry about last January.

Comment 15 Jul 2015

I agree with Wargor, I'm not seeing anyone disrespecting the actual servicemen and women who are so vital to our freedom, but rather the decision-makers who send our brothers and sisters to wars of debatable value, as well as the giant defense contractors who buy influence in our government.  

The flag is for some a symbol of "the powers that be" or "the man", and so is sometimes abused as a political statement.  Similar to if the Sons of Liberty burned the British Union Jack in protest back in 1772 or something.
