You're right, that was writer error. I didn't mean to imply a win was needed to get into the B1G title game. It was more a "all that was left to do before the championship game" kind of thing that went sideways on me.
I have no excuse. All I can say is...
That was also my takeaway. Haha
Or even a comment under someone's blog story.
You don't have to "torture" a stat that says a great coach won a third of his D1 championship games. Kinda does a nice job illustrating that hard things are hard on its own (not that "it's hard" was even the point).
I'd rather go to Splitsville.

Schlichter was a gunslinger but when I think of "modern" era (the qualifier I used) I don't think of one of Woody's recruits. That was a long time ago, brother. Longer than either of us would care to admit. :)
They're from Sweden, which might be why you haven't heard of them (well, that and the fact that radio has sucked for a long time).
I'd recommend getting a copy of Stardust We Are or Space Revolver and giving them a test drive. Give them at least 3-5 spins each to fully absorb.
Sounds like you and I have a lot to talk about, musically, but it will have to wait until I get over Chris Squire's death.
Awesome vehicle, fun to drive, and gets a shitload better mileage than my Dodge Durango did (which I had to get rid of when I took a job with a 40-mile commute).
Lots of great answers here (LOVE the Mike Nugent suggestion), but a lot of people are forgetting the rules of the exercise:
So here are the rules: you can bring one former Buckeye football star to play on the 2015 team. The player had to have been drafted by an NFL team. And they must still be in in playing shape, so either currently in the NFL or very recently retired.
