B-Rock and his family restore a little of my faith in this human race that can be very disappointing some times. As soon as I wipe the "dust" from my eyes I will up vote every comment in this thread. Lord, give us all little of B-Rocks strength and grace.
The article about the '68 team paired with the high hopes & expectations for the Buckeyes this year has me thinking. While there are multiple similarities I am not familiar with the '68 squad beyond the press clippings. To my way of thinking the biggest possible difference is leadership. That can come from coaching but needs to be delivered from the students the most.
The majority of opinions on UFM are well documented and founded in fact. I think the difference will be Braxton Miller and other student leaders. The players showed great leadership through the adversity last year, but the challenges this year are different. Failure is never fatal and success is never final. Braxton's leadership will be incredibly important in avoiding any kind of hangover or let down. He is hungry and will lead the grind.
I'm happy he is a Buckeye, and I'm grateful for the article
I logged in to say what a great write up this was (national quality) but decided to just up vote all the other spot on comments
I am a fan of Ramzy'work
long live Ramzy, long live 11Warriors, "this is Ohio's internet"
i dont think it is a big deal. in fact I dont think you see happen very much because there is no real competative advantage.
Thanks for an awesome breakdown, GO BUCKS!
I noticed this as well, you have to love it when there is buy-in to the philosophy. The mantra is important and it's awesome that he gets it. I am also a fan of the fact that he made a mature and deliberate choice to BE a Buckeye.
I don't want to hijack this thread but i would like to announce that I am apointing myself as Remey's campaign manager. The only plank in my platform is that Remey should be on the 11W Staff. I will be calling for volunteers and organizers for this grass roots movement in the near future. Please deposit all upvotes in Remey's account and do give generously!
I vote Remy to the non-paid position of 11W Poster Union Rep
I am a 22 year vet of OIF/OEF, PROVIDE HOPE & PROVIDE PROMISE, Kosovo, and a few others, so i do believe the need is real. I am however not a computer wiz, but seems to me a banner would be doable.
Seeking help is a true expression of strength. Win for 618
offering a hand-up in tough times is a true expression of love. 11W in the win column again
618 win the battles, even the small ones, my friend. We all fall, but the number of times you get up makes you great. My favorite Ohio State victory, ever. HOW FIRM THY FRIENDSHIP...in deed (as in actions)
Another awesome victory: You Win 618 and Buckeyenation celebrates with you.
tOSU boosters think giving to UFM`s National Championship program is spectacular, regardless of the hour.
To be clear, the 11 Warriors demographic is fairly diverse but not MGoBlogish

That is a special combo of speed and height! If he has the wing span an fluidity to match this young man could mean bad things for oposing recievers. Coach Ash has to be happy

I think the roster crowded with talent will hurt the chances of a winner coming from the Buckeyes. The voters will be distracted and the talking heads will share the credit which thins the votes out. The Buckeyes will have to settle for another National Championship.
