I've been a Buckeye fan since birth. I remember quite fondly my dad and I would climb onto the roof of the house every Saturday and early Sunday morning in order to adjust the antenna so that we could watch THE Ohio State Buckeyes' games. The ones that were not live, we always listened to religiously on the radio, and then stayed up late (it was the weekend) in order to receive our edition of the Dispatch so we could read the game recap as Hot-off-the-press as was possible at 3am. Watching the Buckeyes Replays on WOSU Sunday mornings at 9am were always the highlights of the fall in my opinion. And we NEVER missed them. Sometimes even being late for Church on occasion. Well..the Pastor at our church made the mistake of asking my Dad to try and be a little earlier next time on this one particular Sunday.This happened to be the Sunday before Thanksgiving and as it turns out was the same Sunday of WOSU's replay of the '87 TSUN game, Erle Bruce's last as Head Coach..My father quite emphatically explained to the entire congregation that his God..Our God is indeed a Buckeye!! And the very mere request of such a preacher could only be the work of those Devilish wolverine fans..Needless to say, we never stepped foot back inside his church. So for me, Buckeye Football is as close to religion as there is.

Couldnt answer that to be honest.  Unless it has something to do with getting a bigger bonus than Larry Johnson? Perhaps it to help offset the cost of expanding his trophy case for next year?

I've said this several times since the Sugar Bowl..But that will probably be the game that will be most remembered during the Buckeyes title run this postseason.  Somewhat akin to the Miracle on Ice against the Soviets in 1980.. That game wasnt for the gold medal but was, in fact a win against the sports top-dog.  An upset for the ages, and one that lifted the spirits of an entire nation.  Our Buckeyes win over Bama had the same effect, and will probably be remembered more fondly over time, as the day we showed the world that we could play this game as well.

That extra $14 in Warriner's bonus is so that he can send Kansas this pic every week during next season:

The 15th game (Championship) will be at his pleaure.  Love Coach Warriner

I think also that schools could become more proactive about the prospects of hosting the Buckeyes by organizing a sort of ticket auction just like the online sites would.  Set a minimumn bid for each ticket that would garauntee the Buckeyes asking price for an away game, yet sell them to the highest bidders in order to maximize the profits for their schools.  OSU has already sort of employed this tactic by their "premium" games pricing strategy.  Why can't other schools?

Maybe we can get the Aussie to drop kick some fieldgoals next season?  I mean, he's probably a Boss at that also, right?

Sorry for your loss Cardale.  Glad that Your uncle survived long enough to see you perform at such a high level on one of the sports biggest stages.  Doubly glad that you had the opportunity to spend some time with him towards the end.  Buckeye Nation will always stand beside you. Not just in the good times.. But also in ones like these.  You have our condolences young Duck Slayer.  May he rest in peace.

My humble opinion of having watched them a few times is this:

1.  Oregon's O-line is nowhere near as large or as good as what Alabama ran out there against us.

2.  What they lack in overall size and quality, they make up for in speed and scheme.  Alabama was able to netrualize Bosa for the most part by running right at him, then double teaming him in the passing game enough so that it seemed almost as if Joey werent even out there at times.  As a result, Bennett and Miller had some great games due to being mono-a-mono for half the night.

3.  Oregon will try to run away from Bennett and Bosa and attemp to spread us out even moreso than Alabama did.  But will also come right back behind it with a screen or counter/ sprint-draw type of misdirection to win that battle.  We need Curtis Grant and Darron Lee to recocognize this early and limit these types of plays.

This game it is absolutely impererative for our DBs and Linebackers to make tackles in space.  They've done well for the most part all season.  But there have been times when the ocassional slipup occurs as well.  Oregon seems to take advantage of that more than any team in the country.

I also believe we might take the air out of the ball once we get on top in this game.  Cardale has been pretty adept at throwing down field these last couple games.. But I just dont see them doing it much this time.  Maybe a couple to keep the Oregon D honest.  But as long as we can run and keep our offense on the field, Our Defense will be resting off of it.

Jason, I don't know if you're  aware.. But When using my IPad-mini the search bar on your 11W page does not return any results whatsoever about any topic, whether there was a forum post made on it or not.

I don't believe this to be a software issue on my end since I've downloaded the most recent versions.  But I was thinking that this might be part of the problem as well.  I always check your search box on here before I create a post and it continuously takes me back to the Topic Not Found, However here's an awesome video of TBDBITL video page.

Meh.. I guess music is just like fine wine.  Everyone's tastes are different.  Other than the title of Two Steps From Hell, nothing else about that song invokes any kind of image to me, about an impendending struggle for humanity from the unrelenting, dark wave of evil that we are about to destroy.  

But good nonetheless.

Kinda feel as if there should be some Eminem playing in the background of that Cardale pic.  Huge opportunity for this team and that young man.  If he truly is The Buckeyes best pro-prospect at QB, then he could make some serious money for himself over these next two games.

One shot. One opportunity.  Good luck, Cardale. Win this and you will cement yourself in Buckeye lore for all-time.  Now go out and bring it home.

Yes.. Glen Mason.  He was fired in 06 actually.  I was thinking 04 for some reason, which would have just ended the ten year period.
