“Sorry if I am an embarrassment, but these concussions have my head all fucked up,"

Is it possible that he was suffering from an un-diagnosed type of depression that he attributed to concussions?  It's bad for people to leap to conclusions about an issue as sensitive as this one, and one in which they have no right to take a position because they didn't even know the player or his family.

As I recall when we beat Oregon in the Rose Bowl, everyone expected us to run out the clock and keep Oregon's high powered offense off the field.  The team came out with Pryor flinging it around and running wild.  The defense did a great job too.  I expect a similar game plan and results against Wisconsin.  It's a new set of coaches (except Fick) but they are aggressive when they need to be, i.e. the 4th and 1 call against _ichigan.

I hope the OSU fans bought up all the tickets before Wisconsin knew they were in the playoff game.  The fans could give us a home field advantage.

A crazy post as well of some of the responses.  You second guess the coaches and players when two of the quarterbacks were Heisman candidates.

Agree with the comment about the music.  There were times when it was playing through _ichigan's snap count and hike.  I thought you couldn't have more than crowd noise at some points during a play.  Is there a rule about this?  If not, with the volume they can crank that scoreboard up to, noise could be a serious factor for any visiting team.

If I heard right, Indiana lost their starting and back backup quarterback in the same game.  Injuries are part of the game and those who blame the play-calling are just venting.  When you have bodies flying and hitting as hard as they can, players are twisting to avoid contact or gain extra yards, or you have a big pile-up where a player's body can be pushed in several directions at once, injuries happen.  Players are no doubt coached in techniques in how to avoid injury and their bodies are conditioned to take a certain amount of abuse and punishment.  All this for our entertainment!  Let's quit complaining and celebrate these young men who are putting it all on the line for us.  Go Bucks.  Beat Wisconsin!

OSU vs. Wisconsin will be a good contest.  Gordon will break some big plays like Indiana and Minnesota did against the bucks, but OSU will hang with them pretty well.  Control the ball and the clock and bring home the Big Ten Championship trophy!

Was that stadium up north half-empty or half-full?

We left for the game at 8:00 for what is normally an hour and a half drive.  Got to our seats with 4 minutes left in the 1st half.  Lost count of the  number of cars in the median off the right side of the road.  We heard Brittany over the loudspeakers as we were approaching the stadium, and I asked my wife, "Are they really playing a Brittany song?"  I hope we aren't taking marketing advice from the old AD from up north.

I used to check that post every Friday to see what was new.  Has to be #1 in the 11W Post HOF.
