I grew up a Buckeye in the heart of Lion country, PA. My Brother-in-Law is an OSU graduate, so I visited his graduation in the 'Shoe when I was very young. Even then, I loved what I saw. That was the beginnings of what became my adulthood man-crush on anything Ohio State. Fortunately, I can actually call Columbus my home, as I moved there with my kids in my early 20's! And now, I'm retired military, currently living in the sunny Southwest.

Seriously?!   Argue for arguement’s sake?   Potential was wasted.  Period.  With the right decisions and some effort the kid could have been a millionaire.   That’s all he was saying.

Though it was a bit snarky, I don’t think there’s enough traffic here to be an issue for ya.

Yea, that’s why I hinted at that fact not being exclusive to his schemes, simply that he’s more often had a pocket passer that’s been heavily involved in the rotation.  Indiana he used both.

Absolutely.  They’re a college football giant, similar to Nebraska and Michigan.  They share a geographical border.  They fight for the same recruits and regional presence.  They may not have the history we have with TTUN, but there’s still natural history.  And most of all, it will be fun to create more history.  

Full disclosure, I’m a Buckeye who grew up in Central  PA.  There may be some bias in everything you just read.

As did I.  

Side-note: Dig the Gadsden Flag.

Right vs wrong?  This is an ethical or moral dilemna? Quite literally, this is a matter of convenience and entertainment.  Granted, there are SOME rules in order to maintain organization, but this doesn’t seem to break them.  It’s a worthwhile, stand alone subject that does not need to be lumped into whatever accompanying subject matter you personally deem as appropriate.

So yes, the group wins.

I dislike Auburn the most in all this.  Just lose that game against Bama and this never happens.  This is basically what the SEC championship game SHOULD have looked like.  One of the two would have been eliminated along with Auburn.  Instead, here we are, and the lone undefeated in all this is UCF.  Now we get to deal with Scott Frost at Nebraska.  Yay...
