    Bravissimo!
    I have not seen that word written out in pleasant discourse in ages.
    It is one of my favorites, saved only to describe those extremely loathed, such as scum. No, I will not ever capitalize that one in any way, shape or form. Hell, I don't even write checks during that week, because my surname begins with that benighted thirteenth letter of our alphabet.

    Great. Tell me one team he lost to that was better? Clemson in '14? They let Sammy Watkins catch SIXTEEN FUCKING PASSES in that game! And yet another 4th-1, where he called Miller's number instead of Hyde and got stuffed. Awful AWFUL coaching.

    Clemson '17? *Puke* way to adjust to a relentless pass rush by abandoning the run and attempting more passes.

    Both can be true at the same time. Meyer could be a horrific game day manager. The inexplicable, ill advised deep shot against Bama in the 4th Q that thankfully didn’t cause a come from ahead loss because Tyvis saved the game with an end zone pick? Bama doesn’t get another possession if you just feed Zeke.

    Or how about Meyer trying to overrule Herman on the final drive against Purdue when the legend of Kenny G was born? Thank God Herman told Meyer to go get his shine box because Tom was calling the play they’d practiced all week.

    Give me Urban 351 days a year, and Tressel on the 14 game days.

    My favorite non-playoff/bowl/MNC win this century might be the 2007 game at Michigan.
    Tressel was smart enough to know where his bread was buttered. Beanie carried the rock 39 times for 222 and 2 TDS. It was the most lopsided, humiliating 14-3 loss any program has ever suffered. And it was glorious.

    First world problems, when you’re arguing who was the best and worst of the five hall of fame coaches you’ve employed over the past 70 years.

    No pressure, Coach Day.

    Glorious indeed. Mine is the 05 game though. Potentially a turning point. scUM up 21-12 with about 8 to play. Comeback culminated by the catch by Gonzo and Pittman walking into the end zone for the win. In the big house. Humiliating wins are fun but snatching sure victory away from them in my mind is so much more satisfying.

    I was in that sh*t house witnessing how it happened. We were down for the most part of the game but I never felt one but nervous and it almost as if I knew Troy and the boys would prevail. Now I think about it. It was kinda weird, but great

    UFM was one stubborn ass person and his stubbornness/aggressive nature sometimes was what did him in

    The Buckeyes' bout with the Cornhuskers was college football's highest-rated game of the day despite its lopsided result. The game peaked early in the first quarter with an overnight rating of 5.2. Overall, the matchup earned a 3.9 overnight rating.

    In a surprise to absolutely no one, the four highest-rated markets for the game were Columbus (36.3), Dayton (20.9), Cleveland (17.6), and Cincinnati (11.5).

    Similarly, College Gameday viewership was up 8%. The Big Ten matchup between Northwestern and Wisconsin earned a 2.2 overnight rating and Clemson's near loss to North Carolina earned a 3.1 overnight rating.

    Nebraska possession breakdown
    First Downs Gained:

    _________Run___Pass__Pen.__End Of Drive
    1st Qtr
    1)________1___________1____INT
    2)_________________________3-and-out
    3)________2_____1__________INT
    2nd Qtr

    4)_________________________INT
    5)_________________________3-and-out
    6)_________________________3-and-out
    7)_________________________3-and-out

    3rd Qtr
    8)______________1__________Punt
    9)________2________________Touchdown
    4th Qtr
    10)_______6________________Downs


    So...

    Two first downs in their first two possessions, one on a penalty.

    Third possession: Mortgage the farm - Use plays held back (at the cost of the Colorado game). Three first downs before the Buckeyes call a time-out. Hafley seems to credit the time out with Okudah's interception on the next play.

    That's it. That's all they had. Throw everything at the silver bullets. Everything you've been holding back. Three first downs.

    Second quarter was another INT and three 3-and-outs; no first downs.

    Third quarter, they managed an iffy first down on a long ass replay review. Their next possession starts with Ohio State up 48-0 and Silver Bullets were bored and unfocused. Easy TD.

    Fourth quarter: Martinez and Spielman still in the game. Ohio State playing a few starters but none of the stars. The Buckeyes keep everything in front of them and make Nebraska trade the field for the clock. Seven minutes of game time later, the zones shrink in the red zone and Martinez is trapped. Over on downs. Thus endeth Nebraska's ONLY possession of the 4th quarter. Buckeyes run the final 6 minutes plus off the clock. Thanks for coming, drive home safely.

    Five first downs in the first quarter, while emptying the playbook of everything they had been holding back. None in the second quarter. In the 7+ minute final possession they earn more rushing first downs than on all previous possessions combined.
