In 1984, Brigham Young (BYU), went 13-0 and won the national title. In 1985, they went 11-3 and finished 16th in the final AP poll. That was quite a drop in one year. Just for comparison.

LSU caught Bama in an odd year IMO. But, Joe Burrow will be very difficult to replace. Next season will be interesting. I wonder how the Tigers will be ranked in the preseason. They get Texas, Bama and South Carolina at home. Florida, Auburn and ATM away.

As you grow older your perspective changes on almost everything. It's just the natural order of things. Kind of like a reality "reset", so to speak. You like songs you used to hate, food tastes change and your memories of certain things aren't always historically accurate. Looking at things through the prism of age is supposed to make a person wiser and more realistic. Experience is the best teacher.

Joe Burrow sounds like a fun guy with a streak of confidence. You earned it young man, enjoy yourself.

The Hall of Fame has some members who don't really belong and others who should have been in years ago. Never been a 100% fan of it.

That Amazon driver position sounds like a lose/lose for the drivers at times. I dealt with many delivery drivers over the years and it seems to stay stressful. I guess I'm just too old. We are in an age of we need it now, now, NOW! Patience is a lost virtue IMO.

Agree UFest57. I retired a couple of years ago with 34 years in material management and inventory control at an electric power utility. Things are happening faster every year in the electronic and robotic fields. There are many areas where people are being replaced by electronic devices.

Computers and robots don't need pay, benefits or time off. They work 24-7-365 with mostly minimal maintenance or repair. I still believe the work force will adjust because people adapt, but it's changing so fast now.

I wouldn't call it satisfying to me. More like relief from more clemson off season hyperbole. Also, an Ohio guy now holds all these records. Mixed feelings for me. He just had the wrong jersey on but that's football.

Now I know how TTUN fans must have felt in 2002 when we won a title with michigan born Craig Krenzel.

I tuned in twice to check the score. Glad Burrow beat them but it's still an SEC title, albeit with a Ohio boy at QB. I am very glad clemson got beat handily but regret and disgust are still with me. Just a weird way to end the season. I hope JB breaks records with the Bengals. I might actually watch more NFL games if he ends up back in the Buckeye State playing again. Don't screw this up Cincinnati.

Ah, memories. Sorry for your situation but it brings back memories as a youngun in the 1960's in Oregon, Ohio. My dad and uncles remodeled our basement and one year the sump pump malfunctioned and flooded our basement. All of that new paneling on the partition walls was ruined. What a mess.

Naturally, I hope you can rectify the situation, but I remember the foot deep water in the basement.

BTW, can't you rent/ buy a gas driven portable water pump to assist the main pump in flood situations? Some of those pumps push a lot of water.

Good call. Forgot about that one. Yeah, the old war movies fascinate me. Grew up watching them in the 60's and 70's.

From Here to Eternity, any old John Wayne war flick, Jimmy Stewart movies, etc. The Spirit of St. Louis was one of my favorites.

Love the old westerns too. No computer enhanced special effects, just great acting and dialogue.

+1 for The Longest Day. Also add Midway, the 1976 original.

Hang em High, A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, Bad and the Ugly, Outlaw Josie Wales. Clint Eastwood classics.

Comment 08 Jan 2020

American Graffiti. The cars, the music, everything about it. I have seen it at least 20 times, but I am a classic car guy.

Also, Sergeant York with Gary Cooper. Great WW1 movie based on a true story. You need to see it.

I used to be a big NFL fan but in the past 10 years or so the game has become unwatchable for me. I remain a Browns fan but don't expect great things from them. Living in Florida for so long, my son turned me into a Dolphins fan too. The Buckeye connections on certain teams has never really resonated with me either. I wish them all success but not their NFL team necessarily.

Bowl games are fun to watch and I love it when OSU beats, USC, Notre Dame or any other big name team.

To me, their is no NFL equivalent to Buckeye victories. A Cleveland Super Bowl victory would not compare to a national title for the Buckeyes. Besides, will that ever happen anyway?

Comment 06 Jan 2020

As long as Ryan Day is the coach, i believe our playoff chances will be great. I think we are even with Bama and Clemson now. OSU could beat both of these teams right now. I know, we lost last week, but we all know why. Mistakes and officiating.

The trick is to stay there once you get there. Bama and Clemson have stayed there recently. Can we?

Thanks Mike. Finally a playoff and Super Bowl season without the Patriots and/or Steelers.  Now, if they can eliminate the Ravens, I might actually watch some games for the first time in a long time.

Not an NFL fan anymore but I'd kind of like to see Minnesota win a Super Bowl. They are 0-4 all time. 

I know, they are playing the New Orleans " Buckeyes" as some call them, but it would be cool to see the Vikes actually win one. If the Saints win, oh well, at least the Patriots are out.
