@fpaos - Football Parents At Ohio State - "We are the 10th unit".

Great group of people.

Congrats, Teddy. You deserved to be paid.

The one thing I really miss about Scout is your insight on twitter and explaining the minds of teenagers to old folks like me.

"My take? I love Harbaugh, but I think Michigan loses four games at least this year."


Comment 01 Aug 2015

Which doesn't belong and why?

  • Urban is thinking, " How in the world are they putting me in a picture with these guys?"
  • Harbaugh is thinking, "Why didn't I take another NFL job?"
  • Beck and Hazel are thinking, "This will be the last one of these for me."

6 undefeated seasons in 125+ years of football. It isn't easy. Nor is repeating as National Champions.

Fans who are doing the season crossword in indelible ink are brave, but not necessarily logical.

Should the Buckeyes win every game? Yes. Will they? That's why they play the games.

I don't see any losses on the schedule, but having one wouldn't shock me.

Go Bucks!

Take the team names out of it. Here are the resumes (all 3 are p5 teams).
Team A, B, C

Wins over top 25 (final rankings) teams, 3, 2, 2
FBS opponents: 13, 11, 11
Record vs bowl eligible teams: 9-1, 6-1, 7-1
SOS (espn): 46, 59, 53
Conference champ: Undisputed, Co-champ, Co-champ

I don't think this is as difficult as people make it.

Had a conversation with a Xichigan fan about their subsidy - he claims it is FEDERAL GRANTS for work study students in the athletic department.

So my income taxes go to fund the scUM athletic department.

Just shoot me in the head. Right now.

Was awake for mine. They used a local anesthetic + nitrous oxide.  When the dentist said "get me the hammer" my eyes must have got as big as saucers. He patted me on the shoulder and said, "Don't worry, you won't feel a thing".  

He was hitting me in the mouth with a hammer and chisel and I didn't care.

Recovery was a big PITA, however.

It appears that these visits do not worry the Buckeye coaches (no 'Hoke' rule here. I know, with Hoke it was more of a situation ethics kind of suggestion if you were good enough).  It's better the kids visit where they want and make sure. It's a huge decision.

As a fan, I've adopted the philosophy that if someone flips away from the Buckeyes, Urban will find a player who's just as good or better.  Or at least it seems to be that way.
