"...and in three hundred and ten days, in Ann Arbor, Michigan." THAT rekindled me as a Buckeye fan FOREVER.

Starting to think my alma mater isn't in the running after all. I can think of two guys from my HS class in '82 and some heavy hitters in the 70s that contributed greatly. I'll mention it by name next Saturday I guess.

Even tho we didn't win, it was FANTASTIC having SoCal in our house! And Texas...and Oklahoma. Well..

Imagine having a chance to play in Tuscaloosa and to welcome them to The 'Shoe. Also in The Swamp and whatever they call LSU's home (Tiger stadium?) and GA. Cross pollination between their bluebloods against US, PSU, MSU and whichever gets good first between Neb and UM would be CF pageantry at its best! As long as the bands go too!

I told my daughter when we started the playoff run in 2014 about how hard it is just to be in the position to have the chance to play for the NC, and that I hope this team had the drive to see it through, because it might be a long time until we'd be here again. Gratefully, they did that year, but not since...and it's now 2019.

Yes, too many times I've seen them come up short: I refer to the o.p. along with 1979 and 2006.

I was hoping for at least one more. I still feel he stole one from us in '07 (yes, they won fair and square, but...) so he only broke even for me. But what he did for the program overall and 7-0 make up for it. Leaving under his own power was something I hoped for too.

That sounds  like a good spot for him. As long as we don't have to play him, I don't wanna experience the vitriol here!

Comment 10 Jan 2019

So the DB buy from LSU didn't materialize? Sounded too good to be true.  Considering how everyone here was afraid of Mattison back when Meyer couldn't get him from UM, and what that Gator Defense did to our '06 team in Glendale...I'm good with him.

Is it common for a major program program to do this after a disappointing season's end? I do remember never getting to see Tressel's postgame after the '06 NC, but I assumed I just missed it. And there was certainly signs of life in the WHAC.

If so, I hope he doesn't burn out physically, as did Meyer. We all make fun of "satan-Nick Saban" but he his the energy Urban had, and focuses it like a laser. Urban is a very emotional man (I related to him for it...other than we were in the same class at UC) but at a price. I admired his fatherly affection for his players, he kept Zeke together (who I think is as nuts as Mo Clarett but from a better family/childhood). This nature of his may have resulted in the Bi-polar nature of his later teams. One week the most thrilling comeback against PSU, then 7 days later getting clobbered by a mediocre Iowa team. The program was SO emotionally all-over-the-place this year and STILL only lost one game...that in itself is amazing. Yet the program couldn't stay focused enough to lobby for "Dwayne's" (imho) Heisman. Let's hope he's as driven, but maybe a bit less "caloric"

I've liked this kid ever since that video from his parents in the stands seeing his first TD as a Buckeye. ("is it KJ?...It's KJ!...YAAYYY!!!!") I could really get a feel for their joy in experiencing their son being cheered by 105,000 voices. That and the fact that his endzone celebrations are top-shelf.
