"(I) think about 'The Lion King,' Simba gets hit over the head and (he's told) 'the past can hurt,' " Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "'You can either run from it or embrace it and learn from it.'
In a Washington Post article by Radley Balko regarding police use of military vehicles, he disclosed that Ohio State obtained an armored vehicle for football games:
"And the Ohio State University Police Department asked for an armored vehicle to assist with "football missions". (The Pentagon gave Ohio State an MRAP in September 2013, and school police deployed it to football games, the department told a student newspaper, so as to have a presence)."
#1 on the list is Harbaugh v Meyer in The Game.
"Lots will happen between the opener and the College Football Playoff, of course, but here are 100 things we hope to see this year. Here's a hint: Mr. Harbaugh is featured prominently throughout."

Looks like MSU's class jumped up in the rankings due to a couple recent commitments.
OSU is ranked #1 or #2 nationally, depending on the service, and we're rated 22, 25, and 29.
EDIT: Link to the stats. I could have sworn I posted it when I made the thread.
Ohio State Freshman G D'Angelo Russell has officially declared for the 2015 NBA draft. He is currently projected as a lottery pick at #4 on Ford's Big Board. Not sure quite what to make of this quote:
"I believe I am ready because my approach was to unpack my bags, get committed to winning and listening to the coaches -- as opposed to coming in and saying I am a pro and trying to leave. I wasn't trying to get in and out at Ohio State."
Here's the link:
I know the attitude from this board isn't normally a good one in reference to Nick, but he came out with a pretty good piece this morning on mlive. It pretty much perfectly describes my feelings right now in the wake of Monday's result, despite not at all agreeing with Harbaugh on rooting for the B1G.
"Harbaugh doesn't need any more inspirational tactics, the guy basically dreams in motivational speeches. But for good measure, he just got one. As the Harbaugh era begins in Ann Arbor, Michigan's biggest enemy is now the top force in the game.
Maybe Harbaugh and new strength coach Kevin Tolbert add a few more bench reps to the conditioning list after Monday's result. Maybe a few more wind sprints. Add another plate on that squat rack.
"You want to be like those guys? Then get to work.""
..."So here it is. Ohio State has the makings of a college football machine at the moment. Michigan State is going through a nearly unprecedented run of success.
The trek toward the top of the mountain, for Michigan, is a long one.
But the Wolverines also have a football coach who still wears cleats.
Let the climbing begin."
Let's do this. 317 days. Go Blue.
