I have zero interest in watching the game.  Not because I am making some sort of stand against the officiating or ESPN, but because it is just too hard to watch a national championship game that I think my team should be in.  

Yes, I am bitter. Bring on the 2020 season.  

Comment 19 Dec 2019

No because sports are so specialized that a player has to choose one or the other much like Kyler Murray did.

While I do not disagree, what makes sports more specialized now than they were in the 90's?  It's a question that i ask myself, as part of me thinks Bo and Deion were just that good and that motivated to want to do both.  

Could Bo or Deion do it in today's game?  What specific changes from then to now would prevent them?

I am not going to defend what he did, but he made one mistake.  Again, calling him a headache at this point is premature.  If he came back and did something crazy again, then I would change my mind.  

Comment 17 Dec 2019

No. Myles is one of the best defensive players in the league.  

Despite his clear lapse in judgment, calling him a headache is not a very accurate portrayal of the man.  By all accounts, he is a great teammate and person off of the field. 

He screwed up.  He is paying for it now. Let it be.

Ryan Day is slowly becoming a quiet assassin.  He is clowning you and all the while you don't even realize it. 

He did it to Penn State (running all over their #1 rushing defense), he did it to Michigan and Don Brown (guessing he doesn't run his mouth next year), and now he is doing it to the CFP because he knows his team should have been #1. 

Ryan Day is a f*cking boss.   

Comment 11 Dec 2019

What was the deal with Stan Drayton?  I remember him leaving for the Bears, but now he is at Texas with Herman.  Seems he did a good job here with Hyde and Zeke, any reason he wouldn't be on the list for potential replacements if Alford leaves?  Have to think Herman's status at Texas might make it wise to jump off a potentially sinking ship.

This is some quality content.  Thanks Zack.  

I have seen Kenny several times this year on the sidelines when watching the game, and embracing Chase after the win last Saturday.  I always wondered who he was, because he looked like he could line up and play, and always seems very passionate  Great to know he is all Buckeye and possibly LJ's successor.  

That speech to the team in the article gave me some Coach Coombs vibes.......pretty special.  

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Yes, the Buckeyes are more battle tested, which can provide an advantage.  Clemson, however, is more "playoff" battle tested, considering the last four years.  Some could argue that provides a slight advantage.  

At the end of the day, both teams are capable of winning this game. I can't wait, it's going to be an epic battle.  

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Some may not like this response, but do you blame them?  Their only kryptonite in the last four years has been Alabama in the playoffs.  They have every right to be over confident.  

That all being said, them underestimating the Buckeyes will prove to be a mistake.  

Comment 03 Dec 2019

I have  another Michigan related question and did not want to start another thread.  

How does Michigan not get a violation for Harbaugh clearly chewing during every game?  I seem to remember Ohio State self reporting Herman and maybe Vrabel at some point.  Every time the camera was on Harbaugh you could see the chew in the side of his mouth and the juice on his teeth. (I chewed for many years so I know what I am seeing).  

Comment 29 Nov 2019

"I think it was good to establish the run early on."
"I kind of just wanted to pound on them a little bit and take the stinger out of them."

Ryan Day is fu*king savage.  He was just toying with Penn State.  He could beat them any number of ways, but decided to go right after their run defense.  

That team up north is in for a world of hurt.  

Comment 27 Nov 2019

So...if you could choose one former Buckeye to hang out with and watch The Game on Saturday, which former player or coach would you choose?

I was just a little kid when he played for the Buckeyes, but everyone in my family idolized him.  He was the first player that I tried to emulate as a youngster.  
Comment 26 Nov 2019

It wasn't easy, I had a horrendous headache for a few days, but well worth it in the end.  

Comment 26 Nov 2019

It's been about a year since I have had any caffeine, I used to be a coffee drinker in the morning,  and energy drink/coffee in the afternoon. Was completely addicted to caffeine.  Gave both up for just water.  

I can't believe how much better I feel.  I think most of that is because I am no longer dehydrated all the time.  

Comment 22 Nov 2019

It was a cold fall day, and the recess playground was ripe with energy.  The touch football recess championship was taking place, and I, in all my glory, was the quarterback for the favorite team.  My best friend was the star receiver, we were destined for a big day.  This was going to be the stuff legends were made of.  

The field was blacktop, with a thin strip of grass along the building edges marking the out of bounds.  We were tough 5th graders, so slips and falls resulted in battle scars of scraped skin and bruises, badges of honor really.  We were up 2 scores with 10 minutes of recess left to go, when I dropped back and my buddy, after catching 2 touchdown passes, was finally being double teamed.  I saw an opening, so I took off.  I made two defenders miss, and headed towards the basketball hoop (endzone).  Suddenly, defenders were closing in, and I b-lined towards the sideline to pick up an extra few yards.  

I let up as I approached 5 foot grass strip, but when I hit the grass, my feet slipped, thrusting me head first into the corner of the brick building.  Dazed, I started to head back to the huddle, determined to add to our lead.  To my surprise, everyone was looking at me with a panicked look.  As my buddy approached, he grabbed my arm.  As  I brought my hand to my head, a hand full of red greeted my eyes, at which point I got a little dizzy. it seems, the building had won that play, creating a nice gash to my head.  

My buddy walked me to the office, all the while his new white jacket was getting covered in blood from me leaning against him.  As he waited with me in the office for my mom to arrive to take me to the ER, our team, minus its two best players, surrendered the lead and we lost the game.  

To this day, I am haunted by the fact that we lost the game under such circumstances.  The game should have been paused considering the situation, 22 stitches to the head should have cancelled the rest of recess that day, but alas, it did not. and the championship was lost,  A moment of greatness was lost on the field that day. as well as a  $25 TJ Maxx white jacket that my buddy's mom never let me live down.

I'll second this recommendation.  Have gotten all of my dress clothes, including suits, jackets, dress shirts, dress pants, ties, etc at Brooks Brothers.
