Having uncertainty about the Buckeyes is one thing, but putting TTUN as 3rd best probability of making the playoffs is a total head-scratcher.

They lose 3 of their best players by far on defense and return an offense with no proven ability to crack the top 20 in scoring.  What am I missing?   Part of me thinks this is a conspiracy by ESPN to raise expectations in order to get Harbaugh fired quicker. (they know they'll rarely (if ever) beat the Bucks with him at the helm)

Congratulations!  I only did the 6 year stint in the early nineties based mostly in Charleston, SC and refitting out of Kings Bay, GA.

Sometimes, I think back on how nice a pension would be at a relatively young age had I stayed the full 20.  But I realized how impatient I was to leave the service and doubt any scenario or other wisdom would have convinced me to stay.

Definitely had some great times and memories, but the little things like getting a 2 week delayed radio message out at sea that Buster Douglas had beat Mike Tyson (unthinkable at the time) , Holiday's away from family, etc. was why it didn't end up a career for me.

Enjoy your new life adventure!

Clearwater is home of the original Hooters restaurant.   Also Scientology HQ - for quality people watching - check out the cadets(or whatever they're called) in their uniforms. 

A few miles up north - Tarpon Springs has the sponge docks and museum - interesting stuff . And lots of deep sea fishing charters (nice size grouper in the gulf)  for a 3 hour or so diversion.

Goes back to my username on other Buckeye forums from the Ted Ginn days, derived from the "ShotGinn" fan named offensive formation at the time.  I, with my Wile-E-Coyote "super genius" creativity threw in "BuckShot" , cuz look at me! ain't I clever?

Hopefully, for Dad's sake, Owen never discovers this:

Seriously though, 2011 was a really fun season!

For those ho-humming this news because "Wade and Okudah are better", they understand nothing about depth and experience.   Anybody can go down at any time.  You don't want the situation we had at Safety this year.  Arnette has been and will be a solid contributor.

Thanks for another year in Buckeye nation!

It's hard to fault Stud for having an OL that helped produce a record (or near record) number in terms of total offensive yards/game.

Yeah run blocking was sub-par this year overall, but I think his OL was built on one primary mandate - protect Haskins, and on that merit I think he did his job.
