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.

Far be it from me to question the journalistic rigor of an institution like NBC4i in the jersey story. But I prefer to see the sale of #1 not as a "generic number" but rather a nod to where we finished last season.

Who's going to replace Devin Smith?

We need to start getting used to the idea that the answer is probably nobody.  Sure, someone will emerge as the "deep threat", but expecting him to produce at the same level of efficiency that Smith did last year is setting yourself up for disappointment. He did things that no one else in college football did last year. And things I don't remember many other Buckeyes doing in all my years.  So to think that we had another guy like that sitting on the bench last year, you're probably wrong.

It's not fatal.  The Buckeyes have plenty of other weapons to make up the production lost in the Long Pass game.  I just don't think we as fans fully appreciated what a luxury we had last year with Devin.

Remember all those "Cardale's upbringing was so tough and impoverished" puff pieces from January?  Boy, the ink barely dried on those before his "Year of Extravagance" commenced.  

I don't follow Cardale of Twitter, but just off the top of my head from what has been celebrated on this site, he has the disposable income for: fancy custom iPhones, courtside NBA playoff tickets, jewelry and watches, tattoos. 

I love the guy and don't begrudge him the celebrity and acclaim he is enjoying. It's great to see a guy like this enjoying the ride and having fun.  But I would be lying if I said this stuff didn't make me just a little nervous.
