This is my first time on a game day thread and my last. Some of the posters are not glass half empty fans but no glass at all. Frankly some of the posts are sad.
SORRY DIDN'T SEE THIS ABOVE. I AM OFTEN LATE TO THE PARTY
Interesting note from Ozone forum: Re: Sweat cheering for VT at the OSU-VT game while sitting with coaches families
Correct...plus he showed NO CLASS openly rooting for VaTech while seated with OSU coaches families...(m)

........even so as to piss off Shelly Meyer and get into an argument with her, all while Mr. Sweat was on an official visit being paid for by TOSU....I decided at that point, I hoped he would go elsewhere. Even his parents and posse he brought with him, kept telling him to cool it...but as some 18 year old idiots are want to do, he didn't stop and was asked to sit elsewhere by security....
I know this because Sweat & company were seated right behind me in Row 3. I was in Row 2 - 19AA
Bottom line this game plays right into ND's proclivity for beating teams on winning streaks - in any sport: UCLA's 88 game streak and Oklahoma's 47 game streak come to mind. It just has upset written all over it even though FSU is a tougher out than UNC and they almost pulled it out
The stadium on the OSU side was pretty high. Our family was 3 rows from the top.
My wife and I are heading to MD from Florida. Will be in attendance with 2 of my sons and their wives and 7 of my grandchildren - one of whom is a freshman at Maryland. Really looking forward to it. Unfortunately sitting near the top of the stadium (but on the 50).
BTW: I'll be there with my wife, 2 of my sons and 7 of my grandchildren. Coming up from Orlando
Sorry I just saw the post above:

I see the first WMD is "chess history". Is the 2nd "chest history"?
Samuel - 92
His game was RESCHEDULED so don't go looking for the smoking gun that shows an underlying issue.
Tressel was a better OC? Are you kidding?
You would have been over the moon if a Tressel team scored 34 points against anyone. Last year's 40+ ppg spoiled you not Tressel's play calling.
Actually Staubach said that he thinks Reynolds is exceptional: "Every time I've seen him play, he's been fantastic," Staubach says. "Keenan is as elite a quarterback as there is in college football today, I think. He's in a system where he doesn't throw as much (as others), but he does everything you have to do as a quarterback, as a leader, to win."

Florida didn't lose their starting QB. They are getting him (Driscoll) back after an injury last year.
I apologize for being the word police - but you commonly use "adieu' (which means goodbye) when you should have used "ado" (time wasted over trivial details). I am actually trying to help and I hope will be perceived that way.
Not sure if you meant Bell was not on the depth chart at al. If that is what you meant he is:
23 Tyvis Powell, 6-3, 207, Fr.
7 Vonn Bell, 5-11, 190, Fr.
I think you'll be a day late
The link to the Eat Too Brutus IV $75 tickets (10 raffle tickets etc,) is broken. Shows an error
Isn't Combs now coaching special teams?
I am trying to understand why the defense has a numerical advantage versus a one back offense. I understand once the QB hands off that he is no longer in the play but why then a 2 man advantage?
Update: Sorry: Upon review I understand that the back is not going to block if he has the ball so there are only 9-10 potential blockers versus 11 potential defenders
Jeremy - Not to be the word police but the incorrect use of adieu, as in your line "without further adieu", instead of ado is all too common.
Ado: time-wasting bother over trivial details. Adieu: "Goodbye" in French.
This certainly doesn't mean the article was not very informative and well done. It was.
