I personally don't like night games because I have to wait longer and be nervous for the entire day.  I like 3:30 cause after the win I can enjoy the rest of the evening knowing we won, plus see highlights all night while watching other games.

On a side, has there ever been a discussion about if night games hurt a team with regards to polls?  If a game is played at night, those highlights are hardly ever shown because the sports crank up NFL at around 5am.  If it is a day game, highlights are shown all day Saturday during every game.  I've always wondered if that helps, hurts or has no impact on pollsters.  No biggie, just curious.

I like the idea.  Been saying for a few years now that I would love to see Fox get the B1G and maybe Pac12.  Make a day out of it with some B1G till the evening and then Pac into the night.  I'd stay away from eSECpn for that.  I thought their studio show was good, compared to what espn has.  

Also, doesn't Fox sort of own/run BTN?  Seems like a natural tie in.  Fox Main with a pregame, then a noon B1G, 3:30 B1G, 7PM Pac and a 10PM Pac.  Use FS1 to show other games.  Tie in with BTN and create multi channel CFN goodness.  Maybe make the 7PM your big game of the week, either conference.

I remember that sound of the Braxton TD.  Heard it from the parking lot as I left in a fit of rage that we gave up what appeared to be the losing TD to Wilson.  I remember hearing the roar and just said matter of fact, "oh, we just won the game" and kept walking.  What the hell was I thinking????

To add:  I guess I just wanted more for these guys.  They are such a great team to watch and its a shame it sorta worked out the way it did.  Not about the results but the whole way it went down.  Some people said that Braxton should have taken the last snaps.  I was yelling for it.  Would have loved to see Cardale get a few snaps, sort of like a curtain call.  Instead it was business as usual.  

Great season and loved whipping up on my two of my most hated teams.  Go Bucks.  Thanks for 2015.

After the game yesterday, I felt the same way I did all year, which was sort of "Meh"  I don't know why really.  Last year was so magical that I knew going into 2015 that 2014 was never going to happen again.  2014 may go down as the greatest season ever.  If so, 2015 was never going to top it.  It isn't so much not going to the CFP.  I always felt the only team that was going to beat Ohio State this year was Ohio State.  They did and here we are.  For me, and yesterday was a big example, I felt cheated.  Va Tech game gave us great highlights.  It was almost perfect.  Braxton highlights, Cardale highlights, JT highlights and a long Zeke blast.  I feel that is what we all kind of expected with all the talent.  Everyone having highlights and we sit there and just marvel in it.  After VA Tech, that all disappeared. Braxton disappeared and the offense just went into grind mode.  It got the job almost done but even yesterday, Braxton made a small appearance, Cardale sat and JT and Zeke (aside from his one big run) just got the job done.  Take 2015 and put in on any other OSU team and we would all say it was awesome.  This year it felt too businessman like, not enough wow moments.

I feel I need to weigh in on this important debate.  

I like the breakfast food at CB, but just walking into the place builds up such a rage inside me.  I hate that store more than anything.  No, I don't want to look at Ma and Pa Kettle videos, I want to sit down, eat and get out of there as quick as possible.

I am still attached as my wife of 19 years is from Marion.  The campus is completely changed though.  Kinda sad.

I think there is only 1 MAC school Ohio State hasn't played, my alma mater, Ball State.  Feel free to skip them in the future schedules, I don't wanna deal with it.

I don't think Spielman is saying they are a top ten team, he is saying "They are the second highest team that could give us a problem"  Guessing he feels we will meet LSU in the playoffs, and that MSU at home will be easier than TTUN on the road.  It was a rank of teams that can cause us problems.

Steak 'N Shake just came on board this year for a few races.  Rahal  has really given 110% on sponsor activation.  When he got out of the car he was handed a "Rahal" shake.  This has been great for him and SnS really loves it, including the suit.  Getting a lot of run.  Great for him and Indycar.

I too have Sling TV.  This fall will really determine if it is the way to go.  $20 a month for all the main cable channels is really a great deal.  The other thing Sling TV has is the ability to sign into Watch ESPN app using Sling TV as your TV provider, so now on my Apple TV's, I have more ability to watch live sports (ESPN3) than I did having Dish.  I'll be able to catch some serious MACtion this fall.
