Thanks for editing my comment, you red-journalist. Thankfully, I've already posted my full comment in this thread. I did root for them all the way until the end.

I would've happily eaten crow. Eaten it raw. But now we'll have to wait until the tournament to see if we can play outside the Big Ten.

We'll get down big, come back, and yet still find a way to lose. It's how these big non-conference games go with the Basketbucks.

Prove me wrong! Please prove me wrong!

Welp. That was prophetic.

I don't remember any UM or OSU commercials, either.

It felt like the first half went by really fast, though. I think the way both teams played clock-controlling ball had an effect on how the TV timeouts worked. Drives were taking 6-7 minutes every time.

I agree. It was working. 3, 4, 5 yards every time.

I'm surprised there weren't more injuries, though. It looked like limemen were rolling up on each other a lot the whole game. I feel better about JT running up the gut than our QBs running in open space and getting brought down at an odd angle. Just really unfortunate.

I think I heard Rittenberg on 97.1 say that Kill is frustrated with the state of Minnesota's facilities. If they don't upgrade, maybe he gets lured away.

If the university gives him what he needs, I think they've got a good match in each other. After all, the university stood by Kill when the media really turned ugly when he missed a few games. He could be there for a long time.

The Sleep System is based on air chambers, and it's non-electric, so it takes a while for any changes to happen. But you can't just turn the dial and expect something to happen, oh no, sir.

If you want it firmer, you gotta make sure you're not on the bed, as your body weight makes it harder for the air chambers to inflate. If you want it softer, you gotta be on it, so your body weight can help compress the air chambers.

How they expect people to know this is beyond me.

Edit: ALSO. The dial is hidden in a Velcro pouch under the fitted sheet near the headboard. Also not sure that's really intuitive.

I wonder if Urban's strict punishments have slowed down recruiting outside Ohio. I'm not saying that's a bad thing. If a recruit is pausing because following rules is hard, maybe OSU isn't the place for them. Or it could be the exact opposite, and the fact that OSU has been in the news in the off season is a deterrent. Who knows what goes on in each recruit's head? I trust Urban, and the guys he's brought in so far seem like good fits.
