One of the best parts is how we did it, too: all dink and dunk. It was a revelation to see how Tresselball would work if Dave were a pass play.

First Friday of the offseason.
Yeah, and a UV. But you know what? Despite the outcome, that season was friggin glorious. I have never spent a season wondering how good the team was because they were so good that no one looked better than a pop warner team from Uzbekistan. I enjoyed the run, and I'm going to enjoy it as long as I can.
Did he say anything that was absolutely true? It's one thing for the ref to say that he's a complete f'king moron and he blew the call but it's another thing to claim that the 'ball is loose' in his hands.
This call is right up there with the 'no pass interference' call in the New Orleans game last year.
I fail to see why this should elicit implicit threats against his family, or why it should cause anyone to wish he has a terrible life, or why anyone should seek to expose his personal contact information on the Internet (as was suggested in a sibling comment). It's completely disproportionate to the offense. Life's not fair. Sometimes the refs screw up. In those cases, score more points.
Hey Ken, how you doing? Wife, kids? Good. By the way, you're a lying son of a bitch. Have a shitty 2020 and for that matter, rest of your life.
Dude, it's a football game.
You play the game because you can lose.
I listened to the game rather than watching—probably a good thing for me, really—and surprisingly I think that eased the pain a bit. It felt a bit this post season like playing with house money. After the 90s, just beating the scumbags feels like a great season. The fourth-and-one call for the TD was freaking amazing—a super gutsy call and absolutely the Right Thing to do. Loved the heart and grit of the team throughout the season, and the amazing run against all those top ten teams. This was a great team, great year. Not happy about how it ended, but I'm honestly not as upset as I thought I'd be.
One hell of a season.
But damn that stings.
So true. Man, that was tough. But holy cow that fourth-and-one.
What a great team. Speechless.
And upon further review: Go Jeaux
Never put the fate of the game in the hands of the officials.
Yeah, this. We should have 28 points.
7 TDs passing and one rushing? Are you serious? The stat lines are unjust.
As a freshman I had an opportunity to listen to a talk by a member of the '55 team who ran a self-publishing firm. He exemplified Woody's practices: he got a list of the attendees ahead of time and memorized a few biographical details (stuff like location) and asked questions for those who stayed afterward. (He's how I learned about the idea of forced questioning.) He shared a couple good stories:
When Coach Hayes was fired, some hundred(s?) of his former players attended a party held on his behalf. He greeted each of them by name. And then proceeded to ask about their parents by name.
One of the services Coach would provide for his players was to provide a job reference. A backup player listed him as a reference on a job application in Cincinnati, and the prospective boss decided he'd call up Hayes. He was surprised when Woody refused to give the reference by phone, and doubly surprised when he showed up to give it in person.

Long live the Houndie.
As someone who has been to Camden multiple times (thankfully only passing through) all I can say is stay away from that place (not sure how far away it is from Piscataway but I know one of the Rutgers University campuses is in Camden). It's on par with Gary, IN as one of the worst cities in the country and even their cops know that (they'll actually encourage you to avoid making any stops within the city limits if you're passing through).
New Brunswick / Piscataway is a world away from Camden. Yes, it's true: passports should be required to enter and exit New Jersey. But this is a stretch too far for me: it'd be like complaining about Columbus because of Youngstown.
You, myself and most fans don't care if he plays this week or not but I would bet Chase does.
I'm guessing he'd rather play Penn State more. Consider that he'd play about half of the Rutgers (more like Buttgers, amirite?) game with the potential to be suspended for a game (or more!) that's much more competitive. The choice really isn't very difficult. It's also pretty easy considering that it puts the team first, too, by guaranteeing his availability for later games and giving understudies additional reps. This is practically a no-lose situation.
He founded ACCAD and advised a lot of the early graphics guys. Many of his students or students' students are working at Pixar and Dreamworks today. OSU's graphics program was (and probably still is) one of the best.
They really are.

I have a crazy theory: maybe Walrusball is contagious. When Bollman went to MSU, I wonder if a mushroom cloud of offensive ineptitude wafted over to Ann Arbor and seeped into the UM offensive braintrust like BSE.
(I kid, I kid. I don't miss the Walrus, really, but there was something strangely beautiful about Dave after all those years of Cooper's futility.)
He was born on the 4th of July. BA
I will never not upvote this GIF.
Dwigt, is that you?
Gist is he put the Bucks at 4 / Clemson at 1
Ahhhh, yes, the personal polls that determine the outcome of the OSU season. Wisconsin was a significant challenge, weather was a challenge. UM seems to be coming back online with their win over ND, and PSU is highly ranked for a reason. We'll have a good bit of work at the back end of the season to change his mind.
I went the opposite, happy for Lovie Smith and Illinois.
A good Illinois is great. Red Grange deserves better.
Watch Tressel's reaction to Boom scoring an unnecessary touchdown as time expired.
I was about to add the same comment. Class.
You have to turn the sound down.
Just the video is NSFW. How about Maurice Wells channeling Sweetness there?
It is nearly impossible to "bail out" of Facebook. You are connected to Facebook until death once you join.
You don't have to join: they create shadow accounts for people connected to those who have joined the platform.
You can't opt out of Facebook (or really any other social network).
In the 2007 game against Florida, OSU went for it on fourth-and-one from their own 29 yard line in the second quarter. That's about the "least Tressel" moment possible - handing the opponent at least three guaranteed points (possibly more) by not punting the ball away. And the game was only 24-14 at that point, with plenty of time left to even things up.
PJ Fleck described the moment on the sideline:
"Jim Tressel is on the headset in the second quarter going, 'If we don't get this fourth down boys, the game is over,' " Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck, a grad assistant on that Ohio State team, said in his press conference this week. "And I've never heard Jim Tressel ever panic or ever say anything (like that). You knew you were in trouble." 
And he was basically right, I think. UF's defense was giving our O a pretty significant FU in that game. Just wasn't going to go unless we could get yards.
Another least-Tressel Tressel moment (though I have to give Ramzy the nod here) was the fake against the scumbags in the 2006 tilt leading up to that game: everyone knew it was going to be Beanie for the yard on 2d and one, but the fake faked out the camera man, too.
It appears that I have a special case of the Thursdays, since this double-posted.
