Another AZ resident Buckeye, I bet I've seen you at American Junkie on Saturdays and haven't even realized it! It's now 11:50pm here in Scottsdale, and michigan definitely still sucks!
I'm in the same boat. Been coming to this site every day for almost a year. I've seen everyone else join up over the past few days so I figured I might as well too!
And hopefully we won't under perform like Texas did AGAIN this year. I'm as optimistic as anyone about the new coaching staff (especially with reguards to recruiting), but we still gotta see em play. Buckeyes have a lot to prove after this season, but I can't imagine them coming out anything other than refreshed, having a chip on their shoulder, and ready to go.
I think part of that depends on how OSU finishes the season in the bowl game. Still making up my mind on if going into the season ranked is a good thing or not. We'll see!
