"Naught (nothing) without labor"
Happy Birthday, Woody. Thanks for all the great memories.
Welcome aboard young man. You'll be a long way from home, but I promise you, Columbus will make a GREAT new home town.
No one ever just get's put on the top of the hill, and no one stays there just because they want to. It's a grind to get there, and harder to stay there. We have lost some great talent this year, but honestly, has there been an off-season over the past 20 years that we couldn't have said that? Some more than others, I'll admit, and this year is a bit rougher with the departure of Coach Meyer, but life goes on. Coach Meyer has helped to strengthen a fortress here, and he has chosen his successor. It is now in the hands of the new coaching staff, the returning players and new recruits. I have faith in the system working exactly as it was designed.
Next man up.
Christmas AND a Boom! I can't take it!
