I grew up a Buckeye in the heart of Lion country, PA. My Brother-in-Law is an OSU graduate, so I visited his graduation in the 'Shoe when I was very young. Even then, I loved what I saw. That was the beginnings of what became my adulthood man-crush on anything Ohio State. Fortunately, I can actually call Columbus my home, as I moved there with my wife and kids in my early 20's! And now, I'm military, so we currently live in the sunny Southwest.

The point was that no SEC school is on the list, but they still have Vandy (private or not). Otherwise, I'd probably be wandering why Vandy isn't on this list, along with Duke, Northwestern, Rutgers and a host of other private schools. I can see the confusion though. Sorry

Urban! F*ing! Meyer! The man is stone cold. Ice in his veins. He doesn't flinch when saying TTUN. It's not a second thought about using the state's/University's name--Not even close. The way he says it, like that is party of his DNA, is so natural. We need to clone him and keep back ups for the rest of time.

I want to hate it because I've been unnecessarily bitter toward the media attention that's been heaped on that division, but I can't. It's just nice to see the talking heads change the narrative for now.

Yea, Shane Morris was a 5* pro-style QB. And he's a Soph (?). Behind some decent O-line recruits. The talent is there, but the developement was not. All "ifs" though. Just gotta wait and see. Ultimately, there's just no reason to over-think it. We've had better classes with outstanding player development in most areas. They will be fighting to get to our level. I don't necessarily see them passing us in any phase of the game.

The bottom of the bill of those hats are like polished metal. Reflective like a mirror. Noticed that during the interview with Cardale Jones. Thought that was cool. I'd buy one.

I dunno, 2 n 9 isn't exactly rectification, but this win is fantastic. And if we're all about getting monkeys of our backs, keep in mind, Oregon is currently 0-fer against us. Let's not get too carried away with the monkey on back business. I'd like that monkey to stay in their back at least one more game. All in all, everything that happened in the past us just that--in the past. The next game has never been played before. That's a beautiful thing.

Maybe, but more likely, we'll see the talking heads slowly convince themselves of SEC superiority all over again.

To be fair, Alabama was no pretender. They were legit. We were just the better team. As for Free Scooter U, yea, they were pretenders. Oregon got the luck of the draw. Probably should have been Oregon playing TCU, but hindsight is 20/20. EDIT: How cool would it have been for GT to beat FSU in the ACC champ game? Maybe we would have taken the 3-seed into the Rose Bowl for a classic B1G vs PAC12 matchup?! Very cool. I'll take winning against Bama though. That's hard to top.

I can only hope this kids still suit up for the game. And while I'm here, I'm gonna step up to my soap box for a sec. Why is it that embarrassment had become so taboo? If you don't do the crime you won't do the time. The rep goes along with the deal. You live above reproach and you won't have to be in the situation Jameis Winston finds himself in. It's sad, to me, that we protect each other and shield ourselves from emotional anxiety this much in society now. Let boys be boys. Maybe they'll grow to be REAL men. Men who understand life's troubles and face adversity head on then learn from it. Too much codling is a bad thing. /end rant Go Buckeyes!

And to think I only called Oregon by 3 TDs... I can't even gloat anymore. They're making my already semi-ridiculous prediction look silly. On the bright side--That's all happening.
