Growing up in Cleveland, one weekend a year, my dad and I drove down to Columbus early Saturday morning, walked to the Horseshoe, and saw a game.

He taught me everything he knew (and his father knew) about Ohio State and we listened to the victory bell ring clear after a win.

It was my favorite weekend of the year.

I'm now in my 30's and meeting my dad for an Ohio State game is still my favorite weekend of the year.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: In the stands of Miami-Ohio State. It was obvious from my seats in the nosebleeds that it was pass interference...I don't know what the hub-bub is all about.

Outside of the big 6, I think LSU/Notre Dame, Texas A&M/West Virginia, and ASU/Duke are all really intriguing. A&M/West Virginia should be renamed the "Defense Optional Bowl."

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...

I went through denial in the second half, anger all night after the game, bargaining as I fell asleep, depression first thing this morning, and now, it's time for acceptance. It's a learning and growing year...let's get better every game and win the Big Ten. Go Bucks!

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.

When I see The Game for my first live visit to the Big Outhouse in just over a week, I certainly won't be thinking of the polls. Sharing that game with my dad will be with me forever...The BCS, however, is temporary. Great article.

I can't help it...my first post on this site just has to be in reply to an "All praise to Warren G. Harding" post. Love the comment...and love the site. As many Ohio State transplants to other states and countries know, listening to hometown radio that doesn't involve the Buckeyes just isn't worth listening to. God bless the invention of the Internet so ElevenWarriors could exist.
