This is what I go off of, and they've never led me astray. They list 3 different cases for clinching the 5 seed, all of them requiring a win on Sunday, plus any of the three above scenarios.

It was pretty clearly incidental basketball contact. It's an offensive foul and you move on. To elevate that to flagrant is wrong.

I haven't caught a game and followed along on 11W in a while. Glad to be around you folks again.

If this team could just quit turning the ball over and get shots to fall...

Great, detailed post. +1

I don't have a long enough span of being a fan to truly rank every season (I'm only 21, guys, relax!).

2014 was the pinnacle for me, and 2006 (my first season I can truly remember, when I was 8 years old) was great until the end. But 2019 is definitely up there. Maybe the most fun I have had watching this team.

What would a Dobbins 85 yarder be named in Buckeye lore?

Something about 'Dobbins' and 'Desert' seem to go together to me, but I need more creative minds in on this.

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Ha! That's a very fair point. I should have considered that.

Regardless, there are 13 other teams that I feel could have done what they did. So I think it lessens the "wow" factor of going 13-0 and winning 28 straight in their case.

I did an Ohio State-LSU Comparison, with stat and national ranking. I feel like our resume holds up to theirs, and the Buckeyes look like the more complete team, so I am hoping that we see Ohio State ranked #1 this afternoon.

One of my bucket list arenas. Have fun tonight! Go Buckeyes!

Comment 02 Dec 2019

He reminds me a lot of Mahomes. The way he can twist his body and change arm angles while on the run while dropping dimes in the perfect spot is incredible.

Comment 27 Nov 2019

The Buckeyes are 17-4 in The Game in my lifetime, but that doesn't mean I don't get nervous each and every year in the run up to that fateful Saturday.

I love our Buckeyes this weekend - and I say that with an uneasy confidence.

This stuff is awesome! I'm studying to be a social studies teacher, and history has always been fascinating to me, so this stuff is right in my wheelhouse.
