You are correct about how it is crazy how stuff works out.  

It is fun to speculate, though, on the "what ifs".  

Comment 18 Dec 2014

It seems like the timing is right for ttun to hire Jim Harbaugh.  

It would surprise me if he leaves the NFL to coach in college, but Saban did it with success (although Saban was not as successful in the NFL as Harbaugh has been ).  

I still can see it happening.  I know for sure that Michigan will pay the man lots of money.  I wonder how he would be as a recruiter; not sure that would be his strong suit, and my gut says that part may not be a good fit for his personality.

This is the same sort of thing that brought Chris Spielman's NFL career to an end.  Yes, Kyle Dodson can't play a game he wants to play and loves to play, but far better not to have a serious neck injury.  Good thing that this was detected now.  

Best wishes and much continued success to young Mr. Dodson.  Finish the degree and do well!

A mark of success is the loss of assistant coaches who move into head coaching positions.

If Oregon plays defense they should win.  Will they?  We will see.

Comment 13 Dec 2014

OSU could charter buses for player's families that leave from and return to Columbus, along with booking hotel rooms for them at the site.  Operate it like an organized tour. The bottom line for doing this could be manageable if done correctly, along with the stipends being used to get to and from Columbus for those who would desire to travel to the game this way.  The wild card would be whether or not the NCAA would allow practical solutions to be considered.

True observation.  Taxpayers foot the bill either directly through use taxes like gasoline tax or indirectly when federal or state funds are provided from taxpayer dollars.  The majority of taxpayers would likely fall into the category of not caring about football, despite the fervor about football that we have as fans.  It is easy to want to play with Other People's Money, though.

I live about 10 miles north of Sherman's boyhood home in Lancaster, which one can tour for a minor admission fee.  

Sherman's birthplace in Lancaster, Ohio

As a resident of Sherman's home county, I approve wholeheartedly of this tee shirt.  Additionally, my 17 year old son tells me that he wants one of these shirts.  Sherman had red hair to go along with his resolute beliefs, and so does my son.  Sounds like a perfect gift for me to give.

"You visit there, you party with pretty girls, they make school easy and beat easy teams," the recruit said under the condition of absolutely anonymity. "I love those things (laughing), but I had concerns about the intentions of their coaching staff." 

That's pure gold right there.  Pure gold.

I hate the University of Michigan from the depth of my scarlet and gray heart.  

I want them to be a top-25 team every year because it is in the Buckeyes best interest that they are.

It will always be a throw-out-the-record game, so why not have worthwhile spoils to the winner?  The fact that it played out like that this year hurt OSU in the perception of those who don't understand the Greatest Rivalry, who were only looking at the records.   Had Michigan been top-25 then OSU might have gained a 3 seed in the playoff after the B1GCG, for example.  

I understand those Buckeye fans who want TTUN to languish, but I just don't see it that way.
