After OSU buries UM in the Game, I hope Chase gets to give Desmond a stink eye on national television, the way Zeke did to Mark May.  That would be awesome.

Yeah, that was a good one.  As was the one a week or so ago, made to be like a horror film, where the LSU guy is calling the female Bama fan.

The latest MGo conspiracy theory on why Bama, OSU, and Clemson are good: Bagmen and 'roids.

So, you're saying that the Shoe isn't a home field advantage for The Game?  I was there last year, and it was rocking.  And, of course, it's always a nooner.

If the team has got their head on straight, it shouldn't matter what time the game is being played, especially if it's against a high-profile opponent.  If a 1-vs-4 matchup can't get the team and fans motivated, I don't know what will.

I really can't see Franklin leaving PSU anytime soon.  Let's face it: he has PSU on a trajectory that is getting closer to OSU every year.  They are by far the biggest threat to OSU winning the conference, and have been for several years.  I don't see him walking away from that.

Having said that, the meltdown on BWI would be absolutely a thing of beauty if it happens, second only to the meltdown on MGo if Jimmy takes another gig.

However, watching the Buckeyes recreate the Doolittle Raid on the nation's top defense with a third string quarterback was probably a top-10 night of my life and I have absolutely no remorse that Meyer kept dropping bombs.

That's a beautiful piece of writing there, Kevin. And, I agree. I was at the game with my family, and it was a sight to behold. Perhaps even better were the reactions of the Wisconsin fans. Walking to the stadium before the game, there was a lot of good-natured smack talk going on, and they were pretty confident about their chances. The next morning at breakfast in our hotel, the OSU fans were all high-fiving and OH-IO, while the Wisconsin fans were still in shock, eating their cold oatmeal without saying a word. Urban took their souls that day.

This is it exactly. I was never sold on all the GOAT hype he was given. Other than a few plays, he never did anything consistently to show that he deserved to be on the field. Another Dontre Wilson, more or less. That's not a knock on him personally, just the facts as I see them, in terms of playing time.

Not a knock on him, but JF is nowhere near Braxton in the way he runs.  Braxton was quick, shifty, and fast all at the same time.  JF is certainly fast, but he is a strider.  At his size, he's never going to be shifty like Braxton.  But he's definitely a better passer than Braxton, no doubt about it.

It was 18 years ago.

Edit: Whoops, didn't notice the original post was from last year.  My bad.

I was working at a small software consulting firm in Westerville at the time.  Driving in to work on 9/11, I heard the news that a plane had hit the WTC.  I walked into the office just in time to see the second plane hit.  I knew right away that it was no coincidence, and some bad stuff was going down.  Later in the day, we got the news about the other two planes, and all of the confusion and panic.

Less than 2 weeks later, I was in Manhattan for a software development conference.  My friend and I made 2 trips to Ground Zero.  It was surreal, to say the least.  Here are a few photos that I took there.

Evil never sleeps.  Never forget, my friends.
