I don't know what it was about this game, but I just felt calm the whole way through. Even when the four turnovers came, I did not get bent out of shape. This was a truly great football team. I think the way they came back and dominated against Bama silenced pretty much all of my fears. I let my emotions get the best of me during the Sugar Bowl. I wanted that win more than just about anything and I fully believed there was no way one superhero from Oregon was going to stand in their way after knocking the SEC giant off of its tower.

So, I will not just cherish this National Championship, but the entire run leading up to it. That's what made it incredibly special to me. They fought against all odds and naysayers to accomplish what could only be done by believing in each other. What we witnessed was a family putting it all on the line. Not just a team, but brothers. They honestly love one another and I will always remember that, no matter how special another season might seem.

Going to enjoy this one for the rest of my life.

This entire site is dedicated to following a group of young football players. The other day there was an article regarding Barrett's Twitter update on his scooter. I suppose you think that is beyond you, too? It's called having fun. That article has everything to do with bashing young people on Twitter as an adult and 0 to do with my exchange with Elliott. Feel free to read it in full yourself, because you obviously have no grasp on it whatsoever. 

Better yet, feel free to go check Ramzy's Twitter feed and see that it is filled with tweets about these players.

My tweet to Zeke was regarding him catching confetti after the Sugar Bowl game. I jokingly stated that I bet he couldn't catch two. I'm glad to report that he (along with hundreds of other Buckeye followers) got the joke. I'm sorry you didn't., but you are trying to take something and run with it when there is absolutely nothing there to run with.

I think you're confused about Ramzy's take on that. This is me being proud of these guys and everyone having fun, not taking shots at young kids on social media. Huge difference. Try not to be such a sour grape. 

Also, I'm a father, no one needs to teach me about the duties of being responsible regarding young people. Why don't you dig up a book on social graces, instead. =)

This is our guy. I love our guy. Our guy would risk his neck for the sake of others. Our guy is a leader, a teacher, a learner. Our guy is a man of great integrity, willpower, loyalty, and unshakable faith. This is why he will always be our Coach, and for many, our father figure and much more than an average man. For anyone who has doubts about his induction, you still have a long way to go in understanding what makes our guy a diamond in a mine filled with coal and the ability to see what makes a truly great human being.

Congrats, Coach! We're forever proud of you and stand by you in all that you do.

This. Good God, man! The tolls. The drive to Chicago sucks, too, but at least I can comprehend those.

Umm, boys? something is wrong with the site. I thought it was just my phone browser, but it's happening on the laptop as well. Keeps going to all these weird diet sites and whatnot. Not sure if this has been pointed out yet, but it's pretty bad. Anyone else?

Also note that this doesn't happen every time I click an article, it has been sporadic. 

Edit #2 Just so you don't think I'm crazy and it's a personal issue, I'm at work and I've attempted this on both the guest network and the secure network. Same issue, either way.

Ram Zeke. Let Curtis and Jalin get to the edges. Bash them silly. There is no need to get into a shootout with them. Our defense is much better and will find a way to get the stops we need. They will not be able to stop our ground attack. I think airing it out a lot in this game might kill us, because they're going to try to shake up Cardale in any way possible. I expect to see them blitz a lot and flying off the edge in an attempt to get to the QB. We need to combat that with a healthy dose of battering rams. Put enough bumps and bruises on their defense and it will quit, ours will not, because it is built to grind.

I once made a bet with someone that I could get an "I-O" in Alabama. While pulling into a gas station, I spotted "Go Bucks" on someone's plate. It was a glorious moment. I talked to the guy for a while... then I got my "I-O" as I walked back to the car, smiling ear to ear. Special feeling. You're right about us being scarce down there. The looks I got while decked out in Bucks gear were awesome. I'll never forget that day, though. I knew it would come, I just didn't know when.

I can't count the number of times I heard "What the hell is a Buckeye??"

Now you know, Bama. Now you know.

Like I told someone else, football in Florida will never compare to football in Ohio as an Ohio-raised kid. You just can't understand it unless you know it. And growing up here, it's all you know. I jokingly told someone I would have faked my own death if necessary to take the head coaching job at Ohio State... but I'm dead serious. ;)

Urban followed his dreams. If UF fans can't handle that and appreciate what he gave them during his time, maybe they should reevaluate whether they're 'fans' or spoiled brats.
