BTN Classic Double-Header: 2011 Ohio and ND this afternoon
It really didn't hit me football was so close until I watched the 2011 OSU game last night, now i'm not going to get any work done over the next week.
I have torrented UTL and Ohio games loaded onto my iPad so that at any moment of static boredom (outlet mall trip, in between my son's races at swim meets, etc.) I can watch them over and over again and it never, ever gets old. Stream them through Apple TV to my big screen every so often, too. And with all of that, I'll still stop dead in my tracks to watch them rebroadcast on BTN or ESPNU. I was at both games and they were euphoric. The Jeremy Gallon/Criqi/"they're going to score" play was my favorite -- he darn near stumbles after catching the ball but no one is near him to fully knock him off balance so he pulls it back together. Epic.
You should use a smaller font next time
I know this is a duh statement, but I'm watching the first quarter and man, we are really going to miss Mike Martin inside. He draws so much attention and was such a physical presence. A lot is going to hinge on BWC for the defense.
Welp, there goes my productivity for the day. Too early to start drinking?
So as to not put in two posts-
I may have to get tickets for the game in Columbus so I don't have to listen to Spielman again.
"you think Denard is electric, but Braxton Miller is..." but was interrupted. What was he going to say, I wonder.
I caught that too.. He goes on to try and convince everyone that Miller will rush for 1200 yds. in the Urban spread.
You had me at "I love Lewan..."
Hypothetical : What if, on the first 4th and 6 when Miller scrambled for it, Demens was able to snatch the ball away from Braxton Miller while Floyd held him up... Would've been epic.
These are the stupid things that cross my mind. Figured I'd share.
Hoke gives awesome post-game interviews. Love this guy.
On a short break from working on a presentation for next week, I just tuned in to see (again) Avery's interception. I have to say, that never gets old. It's as great on TV now as it was in person last November.
Wow, still get tingles watching Denard run to the student section after that victory. What a game.
They basically skip most of the first half of the ND game. BTN indeed.
Almost to the 4th Quarter of UTL. 3 min left in the 3rd
I think it would really show how much progress the defense and Denard made through the season. Actually, Braxton improved "alot" too.
After watching most of second half I'm ready for some football. Put me in coach I'm ready to play right now. Never mind that I'm 53 and can't run a lick. I predict a case of Labatt is in serious trouble next Saturday. UTL was amazing. From last fall that Road Trip show was the coolest show ever.
