Rick Van Brimmer and the rest of his stooges in the Trademark office are total a-holes, preferring bullying and deep pockets to actual rule of law.  I fully understand the need to protect an organization's intellectual property but their behavior is way out of line with every other major college athletic department and professional sports franchise in the United States.

Kudos to Cameron Johnston.  As much as I groaned every time he came in to punt deep in PSU territory, you can't argue with the results.  He was perfect last night.

I've been thinking about him this morning since I found out that the Michigan goat is also one of these Australian punting imports.  I wonder if his lack of football background and instincts that come from a lifetime of watching the game contributed to his monumentally boneheaded decision. I know it's unlikely that Cam will ever be in a similar situation (especially with that magnitude of leverage), but I bet the coaches bring it up to him this week a couple of times just in case.

Haha.  Did you know he could also do a rubik's cube really fast?

James Laurinaitis' father was a pro wrestler.

Craig Krenzel was a molecular genetics major.

Those were really fun runs from Zeke. The last one was an especially pleasant surprise because I was really unsure the whole time if the penalty was on the Buckeyes and if it would be coming back.

But I hate, hate, hated the use of him on the last drive.  For a guy that had three big hitters right up the middle, I have no idea why they tried to stretch him out way wide when they needed to burn the clock and move the chains.  

Oh well, it worked out but a couple more first downs would have given him a good shot at 300 yards.

While I understand where the "Just Enjoy the a Win" club is coming from, I disagree that we should be happy with a performance like this. How else are we supposed to enjoy these games if we're not looking for something approaching perfection. Did anyone think they were going to lose to Hawaii? Does anyone think that they can possibly lose to NIU or Indiana or Rutgers, even if they play well below their potential?

Perhaps it's unfair, but the true opponents for this year's team are not the schools on the schedule, but rather the expectations. By that measure yesterday was an L.

I will say that Eli Apple owes Braxton Miller a pizza this week. I thought the VT fullback (!) breaking his ankles on the TD run would be the juke highlight of the week. But there's making a guy whiff and then there's whatever Braxton did. A whole other level.

Congratulations to Jason and the whole staff.  I've been reading 11W long enough to remember when everyone here hated Urban Meyer!  Glad I finally have the opportunity to support the site in a more consistent way.
