Even though she was born and raised in Michigan, Sarah has been an Ohio State fan since birth. Her support for the basketball team started early, but it wasn't until Eddie George suited up for the Buckeyes that her sleeping football fanatic was finally awoken. Like her parents, Sarah is a graduate of The Ohio State University. She earned her degree in political science, which qualifies her to, every four years, explain to people what a superdelegate is. Despite an intense hatred for winter that grows stronger with every passing year, she has spent her entire life drifting back and forth between Ohio and Michigan. She can only assume it is the work of a supernatural force, and that one day, she will play a crucial role in a battle between good and evil that will take place near that Uncle Sam statue on US-23.

I never expected this kind of reaction, so a sincere thanks to every one of you. I wish I had the time to respond individually, but I'm in desperate need of coffee. 

I feel like this is the difference between going out when 30 Rock did vs. overstaying my welcome like The Office. Thanks again for the support.

I used that same Kennedy/Lincoln link in my Skull Session today. Coincidence?!

Well, yes. (Ramzy can be Thomas Jefferson, who admitted Ohio to the Union. I'll be James Madison, since I'm the same height as he was.)

My mom sent me a new pair and they're going strong.

(I do have more than one pair of pajama pants.)

(I am an adult.)

Comment 25 Apr 2013

Oh, I definitely took it as a good-natured comment. Just wanted to be clear that I wasn't saying either Alabama or Ohio State making the title game was definitely going to happen. 

Comment 25 Apr 2013

Yeah, I know. My point wasn't that they win when they're underdogs, but rather they don't win national championships when the prevailing opinion is that they will. In that situation, they would do what's expected (win every game during the regular season) while also not being the favorite in the title game (which hasn't worked out for them yet).

Comment 25 Apr 2013

It's far from a guarantee, which is why I noted "if things play out as forecasted — which, admittedly, is scarcely ever the case in college football." I certainly love the idea of Ohio State beating Alabama, though. It'd destroy so many narratives at once.

I don't even know if Gus knew what he was saying. The call is basically a Rorschach test. You hear what you want to hear.

Comment 07 Mar 2013

Okay, I feel bad because after we recorded, I realized I misspoke when I said I'd never met Jeff and Chad, when I meant I'd never met Derek and Chad. I have met Jeff at E2B, so I'll revise my answer and pick him as the broad jump champion.

Seems like he does it now because it's Michigan's current shtick, not because he's being a troll like Brady Hoke or disrespecting Ohio State. He's always been pretty complimentary of Ohio State as far as I recall.

I'm digging The Americans, too. Even if you know what happens from a historical perspective (like Reagan getting shot), the show still makes it tense and suspenseful.
