My evil plan is working

The Ohio State football team is undefeated. As a lifelong Buckeye fan and almost-player for Woody Hayes (I decided the Marine Corps would be safer than playing football at OSU against 300+lb monsters who could run the 40 faster than me), I expect nothing less than an undefeated regular season. This is Ohio...we take our football waaaaay to seriously - and Ohio State football even seriouser. As a life-long Buckeye fan I also have much lowered expectations when it comes to OSU winning bowl games...we tend to choke more often than not. But not this year. This year we are banned from bowl games...so all we need to do is complete the regular season undefeated and perhaps hope that we are the only undefeated team and finish the regular season at Number 1. Game over, we win, we don't have to blow it in no stinkin bowl game!

So Chip, do you live in C'bus? If so, where do you ride? I spend a lot of time in Westerville, Olentangy Trail, Sunbury, areas.

Undefeated and it doesn't matter since they are banned from post season. So could be the biggest waste of a season ever. If the season counted, the Buckeyes would come up short like they always do.

Yes, but most leave the state to do it in college.

Though A&M isn't doing to bad at this point.

That's the beauty of the thing...they could conceivably go undefeated and thus conceivably be rated number one...but they are not allowed to play in a bowl game - so they can't blow it! It's PERFECT!

I met him when I was stationed in Hawaii and we were partying with a bunch of players staying in Waikiki for the Aloha bowl. He was a dick.
