I have learn to accept the lost last year which made watching it not as terrible as it was for some people here. I rationionalize it in a way that has me believing that OSU wouldn't have went undefeated after the VT game if it wasn't for that loss. I think it is a bittersweet blessing in disguise. Think of the way the players and coaches performed after that game and then throughout this offseason. So OSU won the natty but the team can use that one loss to achieve something this year that they couldn't last year. Win the natty again but without any loss. If OSU went undefeated last year, I think it would make the fight against complacency that much harder.

This is a good game in the sense that osu has a chance to make another statement of they play well or possibly dominate. I know it's a big if but the reality is the Thai if the game is close, people will say osu is overrated and if osu does dominate, they will be heavy favorites until playoffs.

Nope, he still does both and still goes to brewer games. He laughs about the incident when it is brought up.

Tragedy. I know somebody that is a big Brewers fan and goes to as many games as he can. He likes to drink and last year he got a little too drunk and ended up falling over the railing. I don't recall how many feet he fell but he spent a long time in the hospital. He is lucky that he survived. He has some long nasty scars from it. Ended up breaking and shattering a lot of bones. 

A week later after his incident, somebody else fell over the railing I that same stadium. Won't be surprised if stadiums begin taking steps to try and prevent this.

And the grind to be better than average, that pairs a role. Plus, fighting for the guy behind you, next to you, and ahead of you.

When urban first arrived and the media would bombard him with so many questions, the thing that stood at to me was that urban continuied to mention building a culture that was not at OSU at the time. He seemed to stress that more than anything else at the time. It was difficult for me to imagine what he envisioned at the time but now that he is in his 4th year, it's quite obvious the kind of culture he was referring to. The culture he speaks of is the team (9units strong), the brotherhood, not settling for being average, not allowing complacency and not fearing competition. I still like what I saw in the first season when the coaches were saying they are looking to recruit better at athletes than what is already on the roster. I'm in awe on how urban can build and maintain a winning program no matter where he goes. 

And just to think that the former MSU D coordinator, Pat Jacuzzi or whatever, thinks osu won the natty just from copying his defense. That guy has no clue. It takes a lot more than a good defensive scheme to win a natty.

 As long as Iowa and Minnesota hold onto a football program, I don't think urban has a chance at coach of the year. (Italics)

I agree. It's a little hard for me to get excited about recruits that are over a year away from signing. Too much time left for things to change.

Good question. I'm not completely sure but I thought there was some talk about him at the beginning of the summer, but haven't heard anything since.

I keep seeing this word "pandering". I'm going to have to look it up cause I have no clue what it means. I keep thinking of the white and black bears from China. Anyhow, the fun of talking sports and trying to be knowledgeable is that the reality is.............anything can happen on game day. Every year there are major upsets in all sports. It's extremely hard to predict every one. Sometimes a general consensus can agree that a particular team may have a chance but many times a team can lose out of now where when they were perceived as invincible. I like to think about the patriots the year they were undefeated until they lost the super bowl. They were on par to be the greatest team ever in the history of sports and by some are still considered to be but the one loss in the super bowl changes things in a flash. As buckeye fans, we have enjoyed the underdog role against Miami over a decade ago and obviously, last years run after Barrett was out. 

If you take a step back and put yourself as the fan of the dominating team (think any team of any sport that was considered night and day better than the rest) and how they thought how impossible it is to lose with the players and coaching staff they have, these upsets are what makes sports so much fun, in my opinion. It's because of these upsets that these so called national TV experts look like fools and why many of us regular fans try to be experts with our picks. I know life for me would be much harder without sports to take my mind off of the politics of the country, workplace, society, etc. 

i guess i just ranted a little. Please forgive me and go bucks!!!! Beat VT by 40 plus points!!!!!!

I agree with your comment and would add that his personal motivation and drive is off the charts. The fact that he made it known goal to dominate in camps and succeeding at that is awesome. I have to say, from many of the recruits actions and interviews since Urban's arrival has been extremely impressive.
