Agreed.  All of the undeserving rhetoric about the Buckeyes will most certainly serve as motivation.  Beyond excited to see how it all plays out.


Comment 30 Nov 2016

Agreed.  Expanding a bit on that; I was conversing with friends last week and we agreed that our schedule would be contributing difference in this game.  OSU struggled a bit at times sure, but these guys were forced to grow up quickly in some very difficult situations and that maturity shows...  To the tune of 11-1.  We have a resilient bunch who will find a way to win the tough games.

Yup, that was it! I am bummed that I have no clue where that shirt went, but as you said perhaps we can snag one for Urban's 5th straight.

I cannot remember the year now (maybe '05 or '06), but it was black and long sleeved and I wore that thing all the time.  I really like that shirt.  I am with you, however, I haven't seen any new releases in a while.

This is going to be a tough game, I think our defense stands tall and we put on a score late in the game to cement the victory. 

24-16 THE Ohio State Buckeyes

He was throwing on the sideline before their game against Indiana, but barely moving his other shoulder.  Being able to throw is one thing, however absorbing contact would be another and my guess that is he wont be able to absorb much contact.  I would think he is doubtful for Saturday.

Watching an ESPN special on Bartman (not sure if it was 30 for 30)  and seeing how the entire city treated him was down right disgusting.  Like in all honestly, it made me sick to my stomach.  Sports can transcend many areas of life in beautiful ways, but as we saw here it can also bring out the ugly in people.  I am not sure if any apology is needed, perhaps people can now finally let it go.  For his sake, really.

Incredibly excited and I have to admit it has been difficult to focus at work today.  Kluber will be Kluber and with Miller and Allen on decent rest I like our chances.  The bats improve improve and convert on opportunities when they arise.  Lets gooooooo!

Well said, my friend.  Minus the stats comparing tOSU to Bama (thanks for outlining that BTW), I nearly had an identical conversation with a friend of mine over the weekend.  We both conceded the fact that this young offense has struggled a bit, but when you zoom out we are competing at a high level within a B1G that is much better as a whole.

The increasing cost and the Universities pandering to corporations have removed most if not all of the beauty and pageantry that tOSU on game day.  Being forced to listen to and watch commercials during TV timeouts as opposed to The BEST DAMN BAND IN THE LAND irks me to say the least.  After reading Gene Smith say that they could continue to raise the cost of tickets and still sell out was when I tapped out.  The hubris in that makes me sick....

I have to tell you - being forced to listen to and watch commercial after commercial during TV timeouts was my tipping point.  The corporate mentality has ruined the experience.  During TV timeouts we should be listening to nothing but The Best Damn Band In The Land and O-H-I-O rolling the stadium.
