That could have been a factor. I was thinking, his having won the Heisman was probably a psychological advantage for Florida, and a liability for Ohio State in that game. Even if Troy had been, or was, in top condition. The Buckeyes were just plain overconfident.

Are you kidding me, you must be new here. Drinking threads always do well on 11W, and I love them.

As it happens, I'm sitting on my porch right now with my dogs, having a cold one, watching a supermoon rise over the house across the street. Good livin'.

I think  that subject  is worthy of a discussion thread all on its own merit. I'll start one next weekend if no one else does.

Comment 30 Aug 2015

Well, I get your point, but when Ohio State won the first of those 2 championships, Miami was playing in a meaningful post-season game. Nothing after that though, agreed.

I'm seeing a lot of posts, literally every day, about how good Virginia Tech's players are. And there are media types who, probrably for various reasons, are talking up the prospect of another upset.

So where were they last year? After week 2, I remember most weekends coming to this site and seeing a discussion about how poorly VT showed on Saturday afternoon.

Looking forward to Monday night.

BTW, let's not forget that New York City has a certain charm during the Christmas season, at least compared to the rest of the year. They'll never move that ceremony and dinner to February.

Is a defensive scheme now considered intellectual property? I'm glad MSU will now have to come up with a new one, lest they "steal" from Narduzzi.

It's a school night. I will probably enjoy an IPA during the first half, and maybe pop open another in the fourth quarter to celebrate a win.

I have at times asked my kids if they know how many hours my dad spent helping me with science fair projects and the like.  They always answer with, "That's easy. Zero." 

Not that I have done things that way, and not that I blame my dad, but the point is they have to do the bulk of the work, and especially the parts where the learning is really involved. And they have.

Every time I see his name in print or on my TV screen it always registers as "Don't Know", for some reason. Hmmmm....

Brady Hoke is now gainfully employed by Sirius XM on their College Sports Channel, although I don't now how well that pays in the off season. Yes, we all know he sounds like he's twice as old as he really is. But he's still not as bad to listen to as another new addition, Rachel Baribeau, who makes fingernails on a chalkboard sound good.  Siriusly.

I've thought about this.  My conclusion is, the Bachelor really is bad TV, but at the same time I can't blame a guy for being on the show. Nice work if you can get it. 

I've never actually seen it, but I assume there are exceptionally attractive women involved.

Comment 28 Aug 2015

Um, while you did mention the '05 game, you neglected to state how badly that ended after the bumbling Marcus Vick had four fumbles and two INTs...

Comment 28 Aug 2015

...we are going to have a hell of a time throwing the ball.

I'll bet real money Coach Meyer doesn't think that way. How many Head Coaches would give their left nut to have Michael Thomas and Braxton Miller and all the other talented athletes the Buckeyes still have going out to take on the VT secondary?

Comment 28 Aug 2015

The Hokies had their "home field" advantage last year. To me, it looked like some Buckeyes were in the Comfort Zone. They won't be on Sept. 7, and thus they will play better.
