And I thought I was the only one.  Seriously, I've almost posted something several times, but since Mr. Maks is a new writer, figured it's only fair to give him some time to find his voice here. 

FWIW to the powers that be, it's starting to grate when seemingly every article is titled and written to say: "Buckeyes' X may look OK, BUT it really isn't."

Old news.  Old, and still horrible.

I'm with you, SL.  Don't know how many times over the past 6 quarters I said "Holy &hit, the Browns look like a real professional football team!"  Seems like Pettine is a very solid, calming presence on the sideline.  Loved it at the end of yesterday's game when, after the winning FG, coach was totally focused on the kickoff and killing those remaining seconds.  And, Shanahan has the offense clicking, even without their best receiver.  Been a long time since I've been this optimistic.  Now, the defense just needs to maintain its intensity for 4 quarters.  Eliminate those stretches where they lose their aggression.

Actually, there was a huge outcry about the 2 game suspension after the first video.  In fact, the second video was released as part of the protest over the 2 game suspension.

What the second video did, IMO, was to debunk the speculation (irrelevant as it was) that "she must have provoked him".

That's Skinny Bert.  Here's what he looks like after a couple years in Sooeyville.

How about Global Thermonuclear War?

Given the emotional state of Buckeye Nation, perhaps it's time to roll out an all black ensemble.

This is the kind of thread I want to read here.  Can't believe I missed it until tonight. 

My .02:  I suspect the loss of Lindsay was an unexpected, late in the week development, and it had a cascade effect on the other Oline positions/players.  I simply can't accept that Warriner had nothing to do with developing the Oline last year, or that he has suddenly forgotten how to coach.

Adversity brings out the best in some people, and the worst in others.  Not surprised by the meltdown.  Disappointing, though.  Probably a good idea to just vacate the premises from about Friday night through Monday.  By then, win or lose, wiser heads will hopefully have prevailed.  It's just very hard to let the lunatic fringe, including guys who have been members here for about 3 minutes, and those having countless user ID's, dictate the discussion and represent the face of 11W.  I love this place the rest of the time.

Amish country, Holmes County, is beautiful in the fall.  Nice lodgings of many varieties: laid out cabins, B&B's, hotels.  Some favs:  Inn at Honey Run, Sojourner's Lodge, Donna's cabins.  Wineries at French Ridge (Kilbuck) and Troutman (Wooster).
