Watch your back, the mods and the mob are coming for you!

What the hell did the moderators do to you? Did the moderators delete or tase your comments? I don’t recall you saying anything controversial or the moderators mentioning having to edit or delete your comments.

I was thinking why OSU didn't light up the Clemson secondary like LSU did...

Well, with all the supposed flaws we still passed for over 300 yards, with over 500 total. Not too shabby, especially against a pretty good defense. Plus, running plays effectively shortened the game.

Yes, Burrow was lights out...but OSU moved the ball very effectively. I think that we move the ball just as effectively even if we were to have the same personnel next year, simply due to increased time in the system and playing together.

I learned through the social media of the day (handwritten in pencil in the WOT bathroom stall) that I preferred the company of the same sex...although it was not written, nor was it meant, in a flattering way.

Thank you for the story, Avery. 
I loved my time visiting the main library before it was renovated in 2007. But I love visiting even more now. When I’m back in Columbus I’ll often take my work there for a day or two.

Did the refs legitimately screw Alabama in any way

I didn’t watch the game but the highlights showed a controversial video review that awarded Auburn extra time added back on the clock at the half, which allowed the War Tigers to kick a field goal. Clock had gone to 0:00 after an incomplete pass, but then they reviewed and decided to put some time back on, and it really shouldn’t have been added. Those were pivotal points in the game.

So, yes, it was a pretty similar situation.

I said I had yet to find a "reliable" way of doing it. You can click the "reply" link and sometimes it will take you directly to your post. However, it frequently does not work.

Ok. Sounds good. Just trying to lend a hand by checking if this is a method that you had explored, as that’s how I know to go back and look at individual comments.

Not sure if this will solve your issue (or what you mean), but you could go to your user page, and then click on the link to the thread that is below each comment. It will say “Commented on ...“ and then there will be a hot-link to the thread where the comment is made. This should take you to the spot in the thread where your comment is located. This should go back ~25 comments.

I have almost recovered because the number of vile threads on 11W about the game has significantly died down.

BTW, as I was at the game, I saw that Clemson took a kneeldown. And then we had to wait to exit the stadium en mass. I will say, not one single Clemson fan (that I saw) taunted anyone at the stadium. I’m sure it happened somewhere, but the Clemson fans in attendance were much more respectable than the rubes we met online. The only assholes at the game were two Oregon fans in front of me (although not about us actually losing) and one huge prick Notre Dame fan that was going to get his ass beat as he was taunting so many fans, and claiming and superiority as they beat some team that day, lol.

So, the Clemson fans in attendance actually made me respect them a bit more, and not hate them so much. However, Dabo talking about the winning score being 29 and they winning their 29th in a row makes me dislike them still. It was a little lame. Like the fans more and the team less after that game.

People hated Tressel and he was about the most respectable person you could ever meet.

You know what, I trust Ryan Day more than Tressel. I don’t think that Tress was bad, but to me he seems more dishonest less genuine than Day.

Maybe that’s because Tress had been through a lot and had all of the coach speak down by the time he got to OSU, but he seems more like he could be hiding something than Day does. Maybe that will change with time, as someone mentioned above.

Big caveat to this is that I don’t think Tress was always lying or something, but, for having never met either man, Day seems more genuine to me. And that could totally not be a knock on Tressel, either.

Odd. Must be a cache issue, because what I have been looking at has been corrected since I last commented (actually, 20 minutes prior to that). And that specific one I know was corrected. I seen’t it!

The lag is odd sometimes, though, so I don’t doubt that’s what you’re seeing. So, appreciate you (and OH-1O) speaking up.

Then I guess it’s good that Clemson fans think that he’s a whiny, gopher-looking sleazebag with beady eyes that taught his players to play dirty during the Fiesta Bowl, as evidenced by Chase Young’s using his strong arms to WWE slam down on TL after Shaun Wade targeted him...along with the other dirty plays that OSU got away with.
