Holy crap, the way the title appeared in the side frame on my phone said, "Looks like Julian won't be..." My first thought was to mentally fill in the blanks with "...a Buckeye." I swore out loud at Clemson or UGA getting over on OSU again. Glad I actually clicked on the link!

Holy crap, that would've been awesome. Watching Byars as a 12-yr old sticks with me to this day. And Beanie was just amazing when he hit a gap.

Ugh, I still have bad 2003 memories of watching Ross stutter-step across wide-open holes and then get tackled in the backfield. I had high hopes for him, but Mo was just about irreplaceable at the time, and it showed. Man, I wish he had gotten better advice.

Nice call RRR. Smith was slippery for being an upright chunk-yard runner and Pete was a TD machine inside the 5.

Dang! While reading your comment, there was another false start inside the 10.

I'm all for turf, for all the positive reasons mentioned above. My only wish is that OSU would give up the Wisconsin-style red and go back to the grass-era color scheme for the end zones and midfield block O, i.e. gray lettering on "natural" grass-colored turf. Understated, yes, but it looked a lot cleaner. Whatever...just win.

I teared up a bit at Sandler's tribute to Farley. If you're feeling verklempt, I'll give you a topic: Rhode Island is neither a road, nor an Island. Discuss.

I can hear the stadium PA during a 2nd qtr TV timeout, after honoring the rugby team for their Academic Progress Report, exhorting everyone to crack open a $10 Natural Light, sponsored by Anheuser-Busch and the good folks at Ricart's Auto Mall.

Farley would be at the top of my draft board, with Carvey a close second.  Then Ferrell, Cecily Strong (she’s hilarious), and Hartman.  Farley was always hilarious with over-the-top stuff, and the other four were/are incredibly versatile.  There are just so many great ones (Belushi, Miller, Murphy, Lovett, Ackroyd, Radner, Curtain, Newman, and so on) that it’s tough to single out a comedian.  

And for what it’s worth, this season’s John Mulaney and Adam Sandler episodes are straight-up classics.  I can’t believe how close to the late ‘80s/early ‘90s level SNL is right now, the Halsey and Sandra Oh episodes notwithstanding.  If only Nirvana were the musical guest again...

I don't think we talk about 2012 enough in the coulda/shoulda/woulda discussions. That team was probably not the best in the country by a mile, but was probably a lot better than ND, who got exposed by Bama as soon as they stepped off the bus. That would've been a very favorable matchup.
