For those of us who dont follow the move of every player on twitter it would really help if you'd decode these people's names for us in the original post.

How am I supposed to know the Big Meech is Demetrious Knox? I just wasted 5 minutes of my life scrolling through this awful, reactionary,  posting just to find out who you're talking about.

As Meyer conceded Monday, the Buckeyes should not have been in cover 4 when the Bearcats needed to go over 80 yards in 40 seconds. But the Buckeyes were in the coverage, and the Bearcats had the perfect call. Mills is a time-tested concept and Cincinnati made the right call at the right time.

This was my first reaction to that play when I watched it live and I posted that in the game thread. Why were our corners 8 yards off on 3rd and 3 from inside the Cincy 10 yardline and then why were they in cover 4 after giving up the first down?

Once you give up the first you know you're not giving the ball back so why not go conservative with 40 seconds left? I guess you live and you learn. All told, it was a very good performance though.

Thanks Ross for the insight.

I had a large feeling he'd  be good. Prior to the season I posted that I thought he'd be just fine and my biggest concern would be the OL (and Herman's playcalling in important situations).

The offensive line has been stepping up lately but it will be interesting to see how good they are when we get to B1G play.

If it werent for Herman (and Urban) totally blowing the gameplan for the VT game and not getting him some quick short passes (screens, slants, etc.) we could be 4-0... really happy for him.

Pretty good performance today. This defensive performance was certainly an improvement on the scum game past year but it still isnt Ohio State defense.

A small psychological note that I thought of... and I thought Herman might think of it since he has the powerful psych degree... but I thought, when we were up 23-7 at the end of the first quarter and we got the ball with about a minute remaining, we should have tried a deep throw after the change of possession trying to make turn the scoreboard to 30-7 at the end of the 1st quarter. 

I know it doesnt sound like much, and we ultimately scored on that drive anyway, but I think going to a commercial break having them see the scoreboard at 30-7 with only one quarter gone might have been mentally breaking had we done that.

That's very nitpicky, so I am not being critical, I guess I am just curious if anybody had a similar thought? Or reactions to my thinking?

Sadly, scum won that game if I remember correctly. Not enough anguish for me.

Seattle feels creepy for looking up the age of every cheerleader on our squad.

Saddam Hussein was able to keep those people in check over there... what ever happened to that guy?

From everything I've seen on the internets... cheerleaders are not innocent.

I play FIFA 14 for PS3 right now... havent sprung for the ONE or PS4 yet... I have to say, I'm disappointed with the career mode. There is apparently a bug in the game that didnt allow me to use the financial takeover. Nevertheless, I will eventually get 15.

Yawn... looks like it's just Hoke saying he doesnt know who his starting QB is... I think scum fans have been making that announcement for the last 2 years.

Brandon is announcing that the $5 medium pizza deal at Dominoes has failed miserably because throwing "sauce and shit" on a piece of cardboard and calling it pizza isnt a good business model.
