The trick with the Shamrock Shake is to have them make it half Shamrock, half chocolate.
So THAT'S how they beat us in '07. In the first Florida slide, lower right play, there are only 6 men on the line. That and the blatant holding/offsides non-calls on every single play. Shameful.
I'm sure you've all heard some iteration of this joke, but Imma go ahead and post it anyway.
Bo Schembechler dies and goes to Heaven. God welcomes him and shows him around. He leads him to a row of houses and they stop in front of a clean, well-manicured brick house with a Michigan flag in the yard and Maize and Blue trim.
Bo looks around a bit, heads up to the front porch, and says, "Wow, thank you. This is great!"
Then he notices another house, at the end of the street. It's a huge, white marble palace trimmed in Scarlet, with a giant Block O painted on the front door. There's a grove of buckeye trees, a huge bell tower, and a full compliment of angels spelling out script "Ohio" on the front lawn.
Bo says, "Not to sound ungrateful, because my house is great, but I've got to ask - why did Woody get such a huge house?"
God replies, "That's not Woody's house, that's my house."
Reminds me of two of my favorite demotivational posters:
1) MEETINGS - Because none of us are as dumb as all of us
2) CONSULTING - Because if you can't be part of the solution, there's good money to be made in prolonging the problem.

It is far more likely that the Buckeyes lose a game next season than go undefeated. The law of averages and such.
That's kind of like saying if you flip heads, there's a better chance of flipping tails than heads for a second time. But I know what you meant. Truthfully, it looks like there's a better chance of an undefeated season next year than there was this year. Here's to hoping.
Because really, other than michigan and a game that we had 6 weeks to prepare for with oregon when have we shut down that type of offense?
Any time they have beaten Northwestern, Purdue, Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, etc... I see your point. But I think it's easy to say they don't match up well against spread teams when they lose. The problem is you have to ignore all the times they do win. It's not an issue of scheme, it's an issue of coaching and execution.
I never thought I would say this a couple of years ago, but Zach Boren is my favorite college football player.
Investigator: "Wow, so, this is Georgia? Smells like Ames."

Mark Richt: "Listen. Paul and I have a sort of...agreement...and we may have 'misrepresented' the legality of alcohol consumption to our studen-"
Paul Johnson: "Ha ha! Sorry."
Mark Richt: "-Student-athletes. We'd appreciate it if you, maybe, leave this fine state out of your study. I'm not asking you to lie, per se, but maybe you just forgot what you're looking for."
Paul Johnson: " Yeah, uh, check out South Carolina. I hear Dabo got all of the laws repealled."
Mark Richt: "Thanks a lot. God Bless."
Paul Johnson: "Prick."

Ding! Ding! Ding! Even though I don't believe for a second that Smith had no input, it's probably not his call to make at the end of the day.

I've lived in Texas for six years now. The Texas State Fair is something to behold. Imagine the best/worst foods you could ever create if you were nine years old and made executive chef of Disney World, multiply that by ten, and that's about what you see within the first ten minutes.
