I'm really looking forward to the "one shining moment" montage at the end of this featuring a clip of penn state cultists knocking out nick saban with a buzzer beater.

in the end, that's what put forde over dodd for me. i'll never get over what has to be the dumbest recommendation ever made in a sports/entertainment column.

I wonder if usc ever got up for those Stanford games the way urban-led ohio state teams will likely always get up for The Game?

bud foster's evil genius mind notwithstanding, his defense will still be the second best one on the field labor day night. this isn't a point I've heard raised much by the summertime #pundits, but do people really think Brewer is going to light up the scoreboard with Washington, Perry, Lee, Apple, Mcmillan, Bell, et al. on the other side of the ball? what is he going to have for the silver bullets that marcus mariota didn't?

DJ, I should be able to get a suitcase of fourloco by the dubgate bouncers, right?

paul johnson's butthurt seems preemptive. maybe he was already playing out this lame #brand argument in his head when it looked like ga. tech. had fsu on the ropes in last year's acc title game. it's interesting to me that gary patterson, a guy with a much more legitimate playoff beef than the ACC runner-up, seems less bothered about how it all played out. I'm assuming that's because he actually watched what Ohio State did to wisconsin and has a brain. the facts are in boys, the science is settled - Ohio State was unequivocally the best college football team in 2014.

Hey look! An incredibly painful memory from my childhood! Thanks, Michael.

Seriously though, nice write-up. Back-to-back championships are difficult and were especially so in that era. I have to think that the '95 and '98 squads would have had a decent shot at making a four-team playoff format their upset losses notwithstanding. I think the '15 team is similarly posed. An upset loss won't be a deal breaker as long as they can make it to and win the conference title game and be exceptionally dominant in their other wins.

I have a feeling Cardale's going to be a force for good for a long time on and off the field. As an alum, a fan of the football program, and an Ohioan I'm pretty damn proud of that dude.

Comment 21 Jul 2015

yeah, they're as random as any cfb playoff guess could be right now. but the bigger point remains - given what ohio state will have to do to close out a national title run, it's ridiculous for gus to play this card.

ugh. I'm already over the "ed warinner sucks" people and I haven't even time-traveled....yet.

Comment 17 Jul 2015

Solly's was a great move for the DC alums. Before I moved away there was a push to start going there instead of Rhino Bar which I whole-heartedly agreed with. Glad to hear it's still a thing.

Hey Seattle Linga - I just moved up to Anacortes a few months back. What's the OSU fan/alumni scene like in Seattle?

Comment 14 Jul 2015

is it a treasure map to the loot from that Pappy Van Winkle heist from a couple years ago?

speaking of segues, I can't wait for the boys to roll into Blacksburg to settle an old score.

I'll show myself out.
