I'm glad we don't have Houston on the schedule any time soon. Best of luck, Mr. Herman, and thank you for all of you've done for the program.
Ross has bested himself once again - to have the amount of both breadth and depth as this is an absolute thing of beauty. Thank you, 11W, for existing. I can't wait for the "How to beat 'Bama" run-down!

There, fixed that for you.
The maturity of this kid is astounding. Good for you, JT...
Phenomenal write-up, as always! Most interesting outcome of the game to me was a dominating victory even while losing the turnover battle so completely. Really speaks to the defense coming up big when needed and to a young team that continues to fight adversity and come out on top. Can't wait to rout the Gophers this weekend...
Guess which one is the Buckeye...
I think the most interesting thing to me was how accurate a lot of folks here at 11W were on calling the flow of play (both writers and community members). Most were calling for a very close first couple quarters, followed by an improved next two quarters where the Buckeyes pulled away. And that is exactly what happened. In fact, I don't think there were almost any surprises in this game (weirdly). Navy got a lot of rushing yards (yep), JT Barrett struggled a bit at first, but looked comfortable and poised (yep). The offensive line is replacing 4 starters and struggled at times (yep). The receiving and RB corps is sick-nasty and can break plays (yep). We obviously didn't get to see the new DB/Chris Ash scheme, but other than that, I'd say we got exactly what we thought we would...which in my opinion, is a very good thing. They should only get better and the team is exactly where they should be first game of the season against a very disciplined and tough Navy opponent.
