True enough, but I think that's the point; how many coaches do you think actually have the time and/or desire to sit down on a Saturday night to take in a football game with little to no direct relevance for their own team. Still though, how could you even see the score of the game and not rank VT higher??? I guess some coaches* must not even check box scores before sending in their card.

*or whoever

I'll give ya the UV for being on top of the recruiter info and putting some thought into it, but has there been any indication whatsoever that they're backing off Gibson at all?? There was a schedule conflict, I don't think OSU saw how JT played and then pushed Gibson's game this week from Friday to Saturday so he couldn't see the VaTech game.. But all of this is really just fodder, as I doubt one vanilla (albeit effective) game against a bunch of service academy (albeit hard nosed) cadets is enough of a sample size for anyone to draw any conclusions about a freshman QB's future successes.

Good for Rod! I love this sort of thing when coaches take pride and really give credit for pure effort plays; you won't see it on any highlight reels, but this praise from Meyer will payout ten fold as they (younger players especially) realize you don't have to be driving in a grandslam to earn "play of the game" respects. Good work all around, and I'll be looking forward to seeing what Rod can do with a few extra carries and a shot of confidence!

Let's get you a headset, clipboard, and a spot on the sidelines Ross! Thanks for my favorite weekly analysis.

Being the eternal Mr. Brightside that I am, I'm hopeful that all this extra option practice will pay dividends down the line with any team brave enough to try and option our D-line this season.

Obviously different situations here, but sort of reminds me of when Jason White tore both ACLs in consecutive seasons and came back again only to win the Heisman in 2003. Not trying to project, but a year to sit, study, and think sure did wonders for 'ol Jason.

I'd be interested to hear how receptive Bama locals are in football conversations with a Midwesterner. I've visited my fair share of taverns in various college ftball rich areas (South Bend, Norman, Baton Rouge, ect) and found almost universally that the respect given is reflected back by the locals, and often-especially the further away from Ohio you get-they're eager to get outside perspective on different teams, coaches, and conferences. However, judging from message boards and various radio clips I've heard, Alabama seems to be in their own little world-separated by arrogance and rational thought. Have fun and good luck down there!

Good luck finishing up the last of the moving process DJ. I too am proud to announce that after four years of moving all across this great country of ours, I am finally moving back to the promise land known as Columbus today! That is, once I finish my 11W reading, of course...

Why thank you sir! I made my first trip back in 4 years a few weeks ago to interview; I have to say I'm supremely excited to delve into all the new hot spots! I don't know of I've ever seen a city that continues to grow and improve as fast as good ol' Columbus town! 

Comment 09 Jul 2014

This was the PERFECT article to read before finally moving back to Columbus today! I absolutely cherished my time there during my college days, but it wasn't until I left for life in other big cities that I truly came to appreciate just how special Columbus is. The music scene, festivals and city events, all the districts so closely knit together, and above all else; there's a sense of community that unites every single person associated with this great city! Columbus here I come!

Love seeing Hilliard doubling as a walking Buckeye billboard. Bring 'em in son!

Thanks DJ for the Wallace interview WMD. Just started Infinite Jest a few weeks ago, 350 pages in so far, but yeesh... Such a challenge, but so good!

You see their new "Bring the Wood" uni's?

*Edit: Sorry, didn't see the WMD link to it the first time through. At any rate, here's one of them.
