The time is now.
Stay up, stay positive. There's going to be both highs and lows here, stick close throughout - take a break from the keyboard if needed.
Open thread protocols (no trolls, zero tolerance for blatant asshattery) and the usual guidelines are in effect, voting is on...
"Note- A kind reminder to you participants in today's Buckeyes open threads: we're allowing voting today as a tool- not a weapon- to help us monitor, self-govern, and self-police commentary during the game. We know that passions run high at times; we make allowance for that. But ad hominem attacks, vulgar and/or obscene comments directed against either the team or fellow commentators are disheartening and unacceptable. Please help us by being your own editor, lest someone do it for you."
An additional kind reminder to refrain from new forum posts until after the game (they'll be insta-nuked otherwise) - and that if you do offer up, be detailed and lead the discussion. I'll take a well constructed post full of criticism over the bullshit "M...igan Sux" link and run.
It's all good, it's always been good. We're going to need their best today, and they'll need ours. Enjoy this day, we've all earned it.
