2013, 2016, Clemson. In Alaska, the Game starts at 8:00. In 2013 I had a headache from indiscretion the night before and slept through my alarm. I woke up, and looked at the time and realized that the game was over. I turned on the TV, and they were just lining up. I literally thought that I was going to have a hangover and stress induced heart attack. Tyvis  Powell saved my life that day. It is the only time in my life that I have missed a single second of the game. 
 

I have literally never been to Ohio. My father was from Cleveland, and lived and breathed Ohio State football. I have never missed a game. My children’s biggest dream is to someday play basketball for Ohio State. The rivalry was ingrained in me, thousands of miles away, from birth.
 

I was born in 1980, and lived through the nineties. The look on my father’s face every goddamn November was so sad that every single loss from that godforsaken decade has etched itself into my being. My father died in 2001, just months after Tressel was hired, and never got to see him coach a game. I remember Tressel’s first win against michigan, and how good it felt. Catharsis.
 

I have a hard time believing that anyone who lived through the nineties would trade any win for a loss to those guys. I hate Clemson, I think that sanctimonious snake oil salesman bullshit artist who coaches them is fucking gross, and atrocious. But I would never, not in a million years, walk down to the crossroads, and make medicine with the devil to beat them. But I might to beat michigan.

Shit, Victor wasn’t all bad, the guy had 18 career touchdowns, which is tied for 10th on the all time list, tied with Michael Thomas, and ahead of guys like Terry Glenn, Michael Jenkins, Teddy Ginn, and Parris Campbell.  I know a lot of those guys only stayed for three years, but still. Top ten in school history.

Why should some the details of a waiver involving the institution some nineteen year old goes to school at be transparent? 

We have a right to watch these guys play, anything else about their lives, education, girlfriends, etc. is not our business unless they chose to make it our business.  We have no idea what was involved in Justin Fields waiver process and don’t have a right to know, and the same for every other player out there.

I agree about Myers, I cannot remember a single bad snap this year, and I definitely remember a few with Price, and about a million with Elflein, and that doesn’t even get into Jordan. I think that Myers has been the best center in recent memory, and recent memory has been better than anyone has a right to hope for, not a chance that he gets pushed out. 

However, I remember a too tall left guard a couple of years ago who was pretty good, and I think another one starts next year. Come on down Dawand!  I think that kid will be a beast next year.

I don’t want to go all conspiracy theorist here, but the idea that ESPN doesn’t rank the teams is fucking absurd. They drive the narrative for perception of college football, and you bet your ass that they suck their own dick by getting down on their knees for the SEC in every single article that they write.  They pump up that league every chance they get, and shit on Ohio State and the rest of the Big Ten as well. They are also the only sports website (out of SI, CBSsports, and Yahoo Sports) not to have an article on Carollo and Redding‘s statement about what a fucked up call that was. There is definitely some Wag the Dog shit going on. Whether that influenced the calls or not is up for debate, but that ESPN pumps their leagues up at the expense of others is a cold, hard fact.

I am in full agreement with the need to run more on that second to last drive. Why pass on second down there?

Mack Jr.'s father played linebacker at Eastern State back in the early nineties, unanimous preseason all American, got his knee nuked pretty bad, and never made it to the pros. Later in life he became friends with Johnny Utah, and decided to send his boy to Ohio State. I think they made a movie about it, and if I remember James Caan plays the coach.

And there ain't nothing ignorant about dropping the n bomb. Everybody in this country knows exactly what that means. It's not ignorance, it's called being a racist. I live in Fairbanks, in the interior, and when I was in high school, my Native Arts teacher went to some big art show, and one of the coastal native artists said to him straight up, 100 years ago, you would have been my slave. And goddamn did that piss off my teacher. No matter what he did, no matter who he was, he was looked down on by the members of the dominant culture. Throwing the n bomb out there is the exact same thing. It's a way of letting some black guy know that no matter what his accomplishments are, he's always going to be inferior to you. You let that kid off the hook when you call that ignorant, the kid's a racist, and he got exposed.

I am from Alaska, the biggest backwater in the country, so if I call some place a racist, backwater shithole, I don't do it lightly. I spent two weeks in northern Georgia, and I can't believe that it is a real place. I never heard people speak and act and who really think like that. It is fucking appalling. I get out to the US proper about once a year, and there are some really cool places down there (for instance, northern Georgia is actually really, really pretty) but I am always happy to get back, but there is not a damn thing that could ever drag me back to the south. Calling Georgia racist is like calling the sun hot, that is the straight up truth.

Alright man, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, like equating a fellow athlete at the school screaming "put the n#@$&# in" at a black kid in the fucked up racist backwater shithole that is Georgia, with some college kid calling another one an asshole, as though if that kid says fuck this I'm out, they are some sort of pussy or snowflake or whatever. if that is what you actually meant, get that shit out of here. If not, you have got to be able to communicate better than that.

Maybe the whole stadium should do it, like Jenny in Forrest Gump, Run DMC, run! All I know is that guy won a national championship, so I'm all in.
