Exactly, love them all-whites but need to put them in a trunk in the attic! 

And in both games we start the game as if we are going to win easily and wind up having to come up with a big defensive last play of the game.

Birm, if this is the result when your bored, then I hope you get bored more often.

I remember the early 80s belonging to the Fire Earle Bruce (old 9 & 3) chorus.

Excellent post

Having the game at 4 am here, I made sure not to know the result and came back after work to watch the game on my laptop. Needless to say it was disappointing that we lost a game, you correctly noted, we were in till the very end. 

I then got on the site and had the same reaction after reading the many comments: is the sky falling?  No, it definitely isn't!

It seems we all clearly see in Danny Clark an exceptionally talented athlete, and definitely so do Urban Meyer and his brain trust to have offered him so early. With all the discussions revolving around how long Urban's tenure at tOSU will be, I will venture to say that Urban is planning to be HC when Clark enrolls three years from now.

I am still pissed off by the way Cincinnati totally misused the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner and human pinball, Archie Griffin. Inexcusable and unforgivable. 17 Buckeyes have been drafted by Cincinnati since 1969 and other than Pete Johnson, I can't think of any Buckeye who had a stellar career there. 

I think the best thing that could happen to a Buckeye is to not be drafted by the Bengals. Thus, I am elated that El Guapo wasn't drafted by them.

Oh how time passes so quickly! Watching The Ohio Players performing on Midnight Special in 1975 brought back a flurry of memories: no cell phones, no internet, no cable, stations signing off after midnight, the Woody Hayes Show, vinyl records and McDonalds updating how many million hamburgers they sold! Thanks Nicholas, now I really feel old! lol

Being overloaded at work, I didn't get a chance visit EW11 this past week and missed the vote. Had I voted, I would have definitely voted for Owens (whom I voted in all previous rounds) and it would have been a tie. And it would have gone to the playoff and the result would be the same.

It was meant to be!

I like Stevens. His elusiveness, acceleration and throwing on the run really stand out for me, which I would think it is quite hard to defend.  The only thing that made me twinge was his carrying of the ball like a loaf of bread and not tucking it in early enough.

His recruiting being led by Hermann tells me that they see in him a guy that can really open up this offense even more it is now.

I am optimistic that defense will become the Silver Bullets again. Unfortunately, I believe Fickell will only get most of the blame for any failures and very little credit for the successes - perhaps for recruiting and LB position coaching. This problem is further compounded by the ambiguity of who is really in charge of the defense that is associated with co-DC title. I can hear them now: "Ash fixed the secondary and he was the "real" DC running the defense", "LJS took the D-Line to new level", "Urban had to get involved to fix the D".  The results of last three years will continue to weigh heavily on his capabilities in many people's minds and the rambling comment does not help the perception. If I were advising Luke, and thank God I am not, I would be telling him no matter how much he loves this university if he wants to be tOSU HC he needs to seriously consider making his mark, either as sole DC or as HC, somewhere other than tOSU. Only after a successful career elsewhere will fickle fans know his worth, finally given his due credit and hopefully one day consideration for the HC position at tOSU.
