In the photo from today of Weber, that's a mighty impressive plaque he's receiving. Spared no expense.
Last week I re-watched 2007 UF for the first time.
Our defense actually played well in the second and third quarters, so there were opportunities to tighten the game. But we abandoned the run -- after we'd gone right down the field with the running game early in the second quarter -- and we didn't do anything in the pass game to try to slow down the UF pass rush. Boone and Barton were being overwhelmed.
Urban's offense wasn't nearly as downhill, between the tackles as it is now. Their only inside running was dives by Tebow.
I just watched that 2003 video. I'd forgotten that the seniors dotted the I. Awesome.
Thank you Eleven Warriors Dry Goods!
Totally agree. This is like a photo you'd find from the 1960s -- for example, there are some timeless photos from the 1968 Ohio State-Michigan game. It was the same kind of light.
Is it just me -- for the second straight week, all of the videos in Ross's column show the same play. This time it's the TD to Thomas.
I'm also seeing the same play for all the video cuts -- but it's an MSU offensive play in the 4th quarter.
Check out Devin! He either thought #27 had the ball, or he couldn't resist taking a free shot. ;-)
Over on Scout, Simone Scott said Loving had the flu.
They faced the east side of the stadium tonight for the show. Is that a first?
"I love it when we empty the backfield!"

Ross, why didn't we throw to the TE's at all?
"Jim Tressel's Least Favorite Moment of the Game" is one of my favorite moments of every weekend. ;-)
I blew water out my nose when I read "sort and wrap a huge pile of loose change."
If not for the transgressions of the previous regime, Crean would still be at Marquette. He should be thanking Sampson's gang.
Awesome -- thank you for featuring Cornelius.
One question: did he change the spelling of his last name? It was "Greene" in the 1970s and it's "Greene" on the OSU web site.
Edit: oops, I just saw the footnote on the spelling.
The funniest bogus job I've ever read about was basketball player Connie Hawkins when he was at Iowa. His job was to make sure that seaweed wasn't growing on the football field.
The only good thing to come out of tonight's game was Dan Dakich calling out Ted Valentine. I've never heard a TV guy speak the truth like that regarding look-at-me officials like Valentine.
Dakich is very good.
He's straight, no chaser, even when you don't want him to be.
