That was the best recap of a glorious time in Buckeye history that people obsessed with stats needed to see! It brought back a lot of old memories from my youth! Thank You!
You are dead on Db ! With all spring to see what happens with Fields, Starkel can weigh his options and see were his best fit will be. Definately a bonus for us if Fields ( hopefully not) has to sit a year.
Neither of these defenses have shown the ability to have stopped our O, damn shame the committee got it so wrong this year.
Thanks Brother -Saturday noon is ALL that matters right now the rest will be what it will be - if there was ever a scenario that playing for a natty meant we had to lose to TTUN, then screw the natty!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my OSU Family and my 11w brothers out there especially us in the south! Saturday is going to be an awesome and emotional Game. Like all our Games with the skunk weasels of the north, the stats and records go out the window, If we dont let them run wild in the 1st half, our D usually makes the adjustments needed to let our O find a way to win in the 4th quarter. Here's to another GREAT GAME!
I've been noticing that as time goes on the losses don't hit me as hard as they used to. Now that the playoff's have been weakened or tainted ( imo ) by having two teams from the same conference, I am starting to find myself thinking about past glories and Rosebowl games more often than I used to. I saw my first and only game in the big house when I was 11 in 1975 during the heart of the ten year war. We won and it was glorious. Winning the GAME and the BIG championship are truly the most important things to me. We are a spoiled fan base beyond belief. Even in the cooper years we were spoiled with everything except wins over ttun. The years of our Nattys have always been filled with adversity. This year is no different if not more so. So lets enjoy the games, this is truly I believe a special year!
So to answer the question ...YES I still enjoy the games as much as I did the first time!
I moved south from Columbus 25 yrs ago to Spring Hill Tn. The GM/Saturn plant brought a lot of Big Ten fans down here. So not only do Buck fans have to deal with all the overbearing sec fans who will swear up and down that they invented football, we also get to deal with blue fans as well. I have lived in Memphis and Northeast Al. as well. Over the years I have found that the sec fans with a brain (very few) can hold intelligent conversations about football. The rabid dog bandwagon people however are the norm. Another year of domination in the bowl games would go along way to making life easier for us down here, talking to you Meatchicken!
Get rid of Davis. If we cant stop the run against a mediocre running team what are we gonna do against teams that can run like purdue and whisky. LB play HAS to be consistant and dominant.
OSU 59 tcu10
I really expect this to be rude awaking type game for the horny frogs.
69 to 6
For the past month I have been telling all my misguided tide loving friends (that includes the wife) that they are in for a rude awakening when they go to Baton Rouge this year. They have all been telling me I was full of shit, and then the calls and messages started rolling in last night at half time :)
Best wishes to you Joe
On that point you are absolutley correct brother!!!!!!!!!We could be playing the waterboys and cheerleaders by the 3rd qtr and the national media would roast us!
Really? I've never seen one bad comment or article or verbalization about The Tide running up the score on St marys sister of the blind. In fact, they are expected to.
