I don't even really care about football, but the excitement is palpable. I can feel it in the air and it is infectious.

I'm not going to the game -- I planned to, but then I scored some theatre tickets that take serious precedence -- but I'm hoping for the very best for my senior homecoming!


Did Northwestern fans purchase any tickets to the game? The Ohio State fans seem more prevalent and are much louder, at least on television.


The campus was crawling with people, and it seemed like a ton of people were going. I know the student section was beyond packed. But a lot of OSU fans turned up, so it's possible we were overwhelmed.

I got out of a concert and sprinted barefoot to my apartment four blocks away, changed clothes, and biked furiously up the two miles up to the field. I realized I had no idea which gate to go in (I, uh, haven't gotten around to a game yet) but found a nice older woman sitting on a couch in some grass nearby, with a big screen TV. It was strange, but I took the chance to watch the last two minutes. Womp, womp. Everyone's still pleased with the game and very proud of how our 'Cats performed.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

My Bucks had their hands full with Northwestern. They always do. This game reminded me of the Perdue game from '09 where I believe we had 5 turnovers under Terrelle Pryor and won in OT. So we keep the longest winning streak alive. Boy, I can't wait to go to the Shoe for the Michigan game. Buckeye born, buckeye bred as they say around here. We all bleed scarlet and gray. Although the somewhat unexpected success by the Browns has the furor around them as high as I've ever seen it.

Clemson, FSU are real BCS contenders

A year ago Saturday, Florida State choked away a second-half lead at North Carolina State, and before the season’s halfway mark, it signaled another year of embarrassment that the ACC would not have a title contender.

FSU's QB is legit. The guy is a monster.

Looking at Florida State, it's kind of scary that this was supposed to be a rebuild year. I haven't seen a Seminole team look this good in years.

They are very good. A worthy opponent for my 'Bama this year in the championship game. Roll Tide!
