Just having fun with numbers.  Our current 247 composite score is now standing at 259,  which by itself would have been a top 10 class last season and would already beat TTUN's total of 254 for last year.  Tee hee!

You got horns, you play them in a funk, brass or mariachi band.  Any man who plays horns in a rock band spend's a night in the box.  You got questions, you come to me. I'm BuckShotGinn, the floor walker.   I'm responsible for order in here. Any man don't keep order spends a night in the box.

Yes, I'm going to lecture you on your own musical tastes (or distastes)

"Especially 70's Chicago"   What???!  That was some righteous horns infused rock, I'm telling ya! 

It's 80's Chicago who's the real enemy here and who you should be hatin' on.

My son and I had a nice replay of this recently  in 2 player mode with the Genesis Classics on the PS3 .  Amazing how you can play the entire game in  about 15-20 minutes, LOL.  Same for Altered Beast.   Game standards and expectations have changed so much since the early 90s' .

AKA , the theme playing in every Wolverine fan's delusional head as they slowly realize the carnage and demolition of their team during The Game each year.

Ringo Starr & All Star Band in Atlanta in June with the wife and kids.  They all love him and the Beatles. (kids (ages 11-17)  got obsessed after watching the movie "Yesterday").   It's been about 20 years since I attended the last one where Peter Frampton stole the show.

The one this year has:

Steve Lukather (Toto) – guitars, bass, vocals
Colin Hay (Men at Work) – guitars, harmonica, vocals
Gregg Rolie (Santana and Journey) – keyboards, vocals
Hamish Stuart (Average White Band) – bass, guitar, vocals
Gregg Bissonette – drums, trumpet, backing vocals
Warren Ham (Bloodrock, Kansas, and AD) – saxophone, harmonica, flute, percussion, keyboards, vocals

Being agnostic to the situation and removing the bitterness factor, It just seems so late to have a College Football  game.   11+ days after the Jan 1 traditional big games (Rose, Orange, etc.) .   Mentally, I'm just ready to move on.

The whole "we only scored FGs" early in the game is not why we lost the game.

Big shock that our red zone efficiency goes down significantly when facing the number 1 defense (in yards and scoring) in the country.  If you were to tell me first 5 possessions, only 1 punt, no turnovers  and a 16-0 score over Clemson in the 2nd quarter, I would always gladly take that. 

Besides the officiating, defensive failures to safety contain the middle of the field on big plays after Wade left the game was the primary cause of the loss.

Even if Olave runs the route and catches the TD, Clemson still has 40+ seconds to get in FG range to win it.  Not a lot of time, but not exactly  needing a miracle either, based on our giving up the big play.  If I was forced to guess, I think it would be a 40-60% chance for them to get to a make-able kick.

Exactly, on the 16-0 point.  Big shock that our red zone efficiency goes down significantly when facing the number 1 statistical defense in the country.  If you were to tell me first 5 possessions, only 1 punt, no turnovers  and a 16-0 score over Clemson in the 2nd quarter, I would always gladly take that.

Bit of an exaggeration.  Clemson did win a Natty in the 80's.  In the 80's they dominated the ACC until Florida State joined and during the  90's they, occasionally along with Virginia were the only team to give FSU any resistance in that conference. Ole Miss and Hugh Freeze literally accomplished nothing compared to Dabo.  I think I hate Dabo more than you, but c'mon man!

Comment 31 Dec 2019

You don't necessarily need a top 5 defense , but you usually need a stellar D line (which we should have) to win championships. 

2002 and 2014 were considered excellent defenses, but we gave up far more points and yards (+320 ypg) than this years defense.  We should have a great D line, which should help ease pressure off the d backfield while it grows with experience.

Comment 30 Dec 2019

OK - I think I'm finally ready to move on.  Been struggling and torturing myself with watching replays, being pissed and obsessed, but right at this moment, I have seen enough and have gratitude for our Buckeyes and look forward to the next year.  May change again to frustration (bargaining)  and rage , but at least think I can watch some of the other games in peace now and enjoy the new year with the family.

It's still feels strange to have a diversion that turns into such an obsession (fan=fanatic) that demands such an emotional investment which can lead to such negative consequences and moods .  Is it still worth it?  Heck ya!

Comment 30 Dec 2019

I'm going to come out and say it.  This team flat out played better than the 2014 championship team.  They had a rougher schedule this year by far.  This 2019 Clemson team was just better than either 2014 Alabama or Oregon and we still should have beat them fairly easily. 

Don't get me wrong, Alabama was a good champion contender level team and our Buckeye squad certainly earned that 'ship, but it comes down to QBs and Blake Simms <<< Trevor Lawrence (not even in the same universe) .  And when it's all said and done, this Clemson team will have more stars in the NFL than either the Bama or Oregon  teams.  The one thing that the 2014 team had was luck(overcame 6 turnovers in the playoffs), less horrible officiating and a little destiny. Sometimes you need all of the above.

I'm not gonna fault this team with any could'as or should'as.  They were banged up where it mattered most (Fields, JK in the second half) , yet played with the most heart and best overall coaching I've seen on an Ohio State Team.

Couldn't be more proud of Coach Day.

Honestly, it was up to the moment of the second quarter where Wade sacks the QB on a wonderful play to force a punt , with a 16 point lead on what was considered a juggernaut, unbeatable Clemson team.
