Ahh, thanks for clarifying.

Although the stupid song is still stuck in my head...

On a side note, is Germaine in any way associated/related to the Germaine car dealerships?  Growing up in central Ohio, those tv and radio commercials echoed through my head FAR too much...

Germaine, Germaine, remember the name..."

Well-played!

Things are getting rather "pun-ny" in here...

One thing to remember though is that OSU is one of the largest universities in the country.  Beyond just the revenue that the football program generates, the school in general has a larger pond to fish in due to so many more tuition-paying students.  I'd have to think that swings the numbers a bit?  But hey, still great to see us at the top!

Most likely a more grizzled, bushy-faced Mewhort...who can throw!

In the picture linked to above, Gunner Keil looks like a combination of Joe Bauserman and Jack Mewhort having a love child...wow!

Really impressed with the coaching staff today - not only are they being more open/creative with playcalling (as previously promised), but they are getting the ball in the hands of new faces who are scoring TDs (Rod Smith, Marcus Baugh).  Granted, it's Kent State, but this builds confidence in those players which should pay off later in the season.  We've seen other seasons where these types of games today gave us more trouble than they should, so it's refreshing to see the difference.

I'm confused...where does it actually say in this article that he tested positive for drugs?  Is it a new offense or the old issue not fully being worked out?  I would assume the former, but never saw that mentioned.  Also, pardon my ignorance, but what is the drug molly?

I sincerely hope when UFM says he wants a fast start, they won't try so many deep bombs...rather, I hope they use the opportunity to practice the strategy Clemson used on us...screens, sweeps, etc.  UFM finally acknowledged that they need to do more of these, so I hope they finally follow through on their promises!  Hopeful!!

Can't decide which pissed me off more...the O-line being more porous than a sponge or the secondary letting the TEs constantly pick up silly yards to extend VT's drives...

How does being fired up and energetic equate to being panicked?  Quite the opposite, in my opinion.  I was simply saying that it would've been nice to see more emotion from the sidelines.  Not that non-emotion is bad, but let's be honest that people rise or fall to the expectations of those leading them.  Solemn and quiet doesn't get anyone pumped up...

Now that Meyer has all the weapons (well, except Miller) to replicate the type of dynamic offense he's been trying to create, we need to see it.  The first few games will be smoothing out the wrinkles...I sincerely hope he's not calling our offense vanilla in 2 months...

Also, being an aggressive offense that is exciting to watch HAS to also come from the sideline.  I didn't see much fire or excitement coming from the coaches as I have in the past...I wonder if they had begun the game fired up if it wouldn't have translated to the players?   That was one of the things that drove me nuts about watching Tressel and Bollman...it was like watching paint dry with an occasional hoorah.  I want to see Kerry Coombs levels of energy coming FIRST from the coaches, which will naturally impact the players as well.

Did anyone see Wisconsin's kicker?  Some former Brazilian soccer player (looking rather overweight, might I add) who made that 51-yard FG look easy.  Said he's drained 60-yarders before.  Can't believe they let the game get away, but that is one bright spot.  That guy has a leg...

After flipping back and forth between Joe Burrow playing and Nick Bosa/Torrance Gibson facing off in live streaming games online, I can't decide what to think...Burrow's stats are gaudy (but against seemingly terrible competition) and Gibson's not doing ANYTHING against St Thomas Aquinas.  I know the competition is elite, but that's not encouraging...

Corrected....I also don't know what to think about the realization that I'm spending Friday night watching high schoolers play... #dadof3kidsunder5andnolife
