There's also a difference between scheduling MAC schools (even mid-to-low ones) and the FCS schools featured in Chickenshit Saturday.

When your team is winning (see: destroying Wisconsin 59-0), Gus Johnson is fantastic.

When your team is losing (see: Orange Bowl), Gus Johnson is the absolute worst.

The one from 94 is nice, but does anyone have a landscape size one? I don't want to pixelate or stretch the glory that is the Shoe (especially since I work with a UM grad)

With all due respect, I don't know that the team built up the expectations as much as the media. There are at least 15 teams that should be telling themselves they can win it all each year. However, it wasn't the players that voted OSU as the first unanimous #1 in the preseason AP poll. It wasn't the players on Mike & Mike (or insert show here) talking about how they could be the best ever before the opening kickoff. 

Yes, in some ways, this season was disappointing, but that's because of what COULD have been. What DID happen was stomping Michigan's collective dicks in the dirt in their own building then beating ND on a national stage to finish the season with 12 damn wins. That, in no way, sucks.

Great stuff (though that's not shocking in any way)!

Next year might feel as different as any season of Buckeye football that I can remember. Between the almost unbearable weight of obscene expectations, and losing roughly 75 players, there should be a bunch of young, hungry (c'mon NCAA, feed the kids) players looking to cement their spots. 

Is it September yet?

If you're a hockey fan, The Game by Ken Dryden is a wonderful book.
