Oyster, you are on fire today!

As for your dilemma, Droessl, do you have a Dick's Sporting Goods near you? They seem to have a good selection of sizes - at least here in the 419 (NW Ohio).

Spot on, Andy. It seems obvious that a bad AD can do an incredible amount of damage to an athletic department ("Paging Dave Brandon; paging Dave Brandon. Pick up the white courtesy phone along with your Coke and mushroom/pepperoni deep dish!"). As for a championship in 2012 ... well, I would never bet against UFM, but if he had pulled that off, his next act could have been walking on the Olentangy (in August)!

Too, too funny, Unky.

For what it's worth, I know Iron Mike has had his "issues" (to be kind) in the past; but my youngest son and I had the opportunity to speak with him in the Phoenix airport, circa 2000. He was incredibly gracious, posing with the boy, who was 12 at the time, for a couple of pictures. I shook his hand (huge hands!) and thanked him for his time (and tried not to laugh as he said, "You're welcome!" in that lispy, high-register voice of his; correctly figuring it wouldn't be good for the kid's psyche to see his dad pummeled into a grease spot in front of Southwest Airline's check-in counter!).

Hindsight is 20/20, but it's sort of amusing to revisit the meltdown a few members of the commentariat had early-on this season. I think most of us believed we'd improve, but a natty this year???!   I'm willing to be generous, but sometimes it's best to take a step back before posting overly wrought ad hominems against a proven developer of talent such as Warinner.

My oldest son dated Bill Nershi's step-daughter for a while when he lived in Boulder. Didn't know String Cheese Incident was known east of the Mississippi. A good jam band!

I love that Warriner got the promotion - he may be the biggest reason we are celebrating our 8th national championship (yeah, I'm counting the split polls). The slobs on O and the "wild grizzlies" (hat tip to "Big Bear") on the D-line are where Natties are won.

I would be astounded if each position coach or coordinator wasn't tasked with mentoring/training his replacement - Urban is too good of a CEO to not make that part of the job description when he's hiring someone.

Hmmmm. So if Mrs. Oldschool & I get real busy in April, we might be able to see the "fruit of our labor" (or hers, to be more accurate) about the time we're ready to repeat... 

"Honey, I need your help with a little project..." 

(Actually, that ship sailed a while back... But it's always fun to try!)

So glad we didn't see his ugly mug during the telecast.

Earle never fails to deliver. 

Great story during pre-game last night on 610 WTBN about your namesake's destruction of the locker room during the 1986 Cotton Bowl win over A&M.

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Told the wife that I believe we'll win, but even if we don't, I absolutely love this team! 

Total effort by 11 warriors on every side of the ball and special teams. Urban and the coaches deserve massive praise for the greatest coaching job at any level in any sport in my memory.

Interesting analysis, GoBucksOSU. Thanks for digging a little. One big difference was the Goiters came into the game as a 5 1/2 point favorite. They still did the job on Oklahoma. I kind of like this underdog status lately. I doubt if this team is a dog in any game in 2015.

Foreshadowing of Bosa dropping Marcus Mariota a few times?

Comment 05 Jan 2015

Because "most wins all time" or some other BS. A *ichigan fan that's a friend was going on and on about Harbaugh - I said, "Yeah, look at all those rings!" Shut him up for a while. 

Harbaugh is a very good coach, no doubt. I believe we have the best in the nation, however (even Goldhammer on WKNR said as much - and he's no Buckeye fan).
