After leaving the grueling life of a rodeo clown, I ventured back to the land of Ohio, where I re-planted my flag, grew a thriving business, and then joined a fast growing local publishing firm. I have a healthy respect for bulls.

And last year, as well. One bad loss kept us out.

As you pointed out, that 2015 loss was on a last second field goal, too.

Best wishes to the UC player on his recovery. Again from C Deck, it was weird because we could see he was not touched but went down like a bag of rocks.

Was at the game and saw that, as well. And while he was laying there after the play, it looked as though he was convulsing. I found an article about him after the game. From the article, his mother said that he has a history of seizures.

I think along with better, more diverse schemes, a big part of this year vs last year is that this year's coaching staff seems to be on the same page. The chemistry amongst the staff is so much better than it was in 2018.

To me, it seemed obvious that the coaches last year (Schiano and Grinch, in particular) just did not get along and did not have consensus agreement on how things should be done.

One thing that didn't get fully highlighted throughout his dominant career was how damn charismatic he is, and how good he is at explaining things. We always talked a lot about his recruiting skills, his innovative offenses, his highly competitive nature, etc, etc...

But listening to him, it's obvious that just about any young talented player would be drawn to him and want to play for him.

I think throwing to the tight end is a response to tight coverage on the WRs and/or being less successful than you want early on when running the ball. Yesterday, Fields was getting the ball on to the wideouts quickly and with hyper accuracy and we were running the ball well.

That probably ended up costing the TEs some opportunities.

I was sitting behind a nice Bearcat fan that took his two boys to the game. After that punt, he turned to me and said "that guy is the best punter I've ever seen." We talked a lot thruout the game and it was obvious that this guy was from Cinci but watches a lot of Buckeye football.

He seems to be way ahead of schedule. I expected greatness, but I thought the early games would be hit and miss. So far it's been a whole lot more hit and very little miss.

I can't wait to see how good this guy will get.
