We may have had a chance against Oklahoma only because of the revenge factor. And actually, I think we could have possibly beaten Alabama if we were able to score a few quick touchdowns (big if) because their offense took a loooong time to get going against any good team they played all season. But yeah, I mostly agree with you.

So much #1. People on this forum are hilarious thinking that ESPN "hates" one of the biggest fanbases, and thus one of their biggest sources of cash, in America.

Guns of August is an absolute classic. You should also read Alexandr Solzhenitsyn's August 1914, a novel about the early days of the Eastern front.

I got a call from Nick Saban today, apparently in 2021 Alabama wants to schedule me as an out of conference opponent in November the week before they play Auburn. What do you guys think, should I take the money?

Comment 21 Feb 2018

Yeah, and there's no guarantee that Nebraska won't be sick even in Frost's first season

It's abundantly clear that Smith is in full-on retirement mode. He's just collecting checks and phoning it in for a few years before he can devote all his time to bass fishing or whatever his hobbies are

Rowin the boat? That's a paddlin

Who rows it better than us?

That was settled a long time ago, with Fleck managing to trademark the slogan for himself after agreeing to compensate Western Michigan, IIRC

Comment 21 Feb 2018

And have fun not playing anyone of relevance this season.

I guess Ohio State isn't relevant then...

Comment 19 Feb 2018

What I really like about Rex Orange County is that he's a self-created sensation. Both his albums have been self-released, sort of in the vein of Chance the Rapper who rose to superstardom from self-released mixtapes.

They make interesting music. While they're from Israel, I believe they live in Miami now, so they probably do locals shows a lot. Something for me to look into, probably.

I love how players like Prince and Knox who were question marks this time last year have turned into exclamation marks. I also like that while we lose one big fella by the name of Jones, we gain another one.

Comment 15 Feb 2018

We should never, and I repeat, never use Weber on KO or punt returns unless he's there to knee it for a touchback. I love the guy, but he lacks the two things you need for returning kicks: shiftiness and elite acceleration.

I've only attended a few sporting events, the 2013 Orange Bowl is the only Buckeyes game I've seen, and we all know how that one ended.

Worst sporting event was probably the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, best was actually probably seeing Miami FC beat Atlanta United.
