I thought I should include my #take, since I have one.
But like I said, I think a good case can be made for Woody seeing as how he's a Founder of sorts. Bear Bryant too. Knute Rockne. Maybe a few others.
No Michigan Men though.
I just lold at "Tom Lady." Somehow I've never seen that before. It's perfect.
It might be wishful thinking on my part but it's not hard to envision an Alabama collapse and some years in the wilderness for them whenever he hangs it up.
Look, man. It's Saban.
Yeah man. You have to be insane not to think the Iowa game is what kept our Buckeyes off the big stage last year. That magnitude of that bed crapping is nearly immeasurable.
No....I meant the thread when the news broke. There was a thread here and the pitchforks were out, then a handful of posters said basically "Dudes, we don't really know anything about this yet" & the thread went to predictable places.
Damn right. In my early 20s my job took me to economically depressed places throughout southern Ohio that I wouldn't even have otherwise known existed; I've always thought it's awesome how Ohio State fandom unites Ohioans from all walks of life, economic & social strata, etc.
I made that very point in the thread and the resident Social Justicers got all Social Justice-y. Here we are a few months later and Izzo & Dino still have jobs. . . . .
Right. A long time ago I started a thread titled something like "Pick a Buckeye to have your back in a Street Fight" and Shazier was my choice.

I used to think that way (Michigan needs to be good for the rivalry/B1G to be good) but then they got REALLY bad and the sky didn't fall so now I want them to lose every week and I really love it when Little Brother beats them.
The EYEH8BITCHIGAN stuff borders on inferiority complex-ish sometimes.
OSU football isn't as clean nosed behind closed doors as many people on this site believe it is.
College football is Big Business, and it's as big at Ohio State as it is anywhere else.
It's good to keep that in mind as a safeguard against High & Mighty-ism.
I think there are games Urban and Co get out schemed and lose out of spite/stubbornness/ pride instead of changing things up.
I think Urban *generally* hates to lose as every great competitor does but he's at peace with losing his way, with his guys at this stage in his career. Call that whatever you want.
It's a miracle they won even six games that year.
Shazier has always been kind of insane, in a good way.
