I’ve read autobiographies of people who have survived the Holocaust and escaped form North Korea. They’re harrowing stories. They’re heartbreaking stories.

But in another sense, they’re inspiring stories, because in them, you see the triumph of the human spirit. They’re inspiring because you see what people are capable of and what true toughness and grit looks like.

Bad arguments abound on why Ohio State shouldn’t make playoff 

I’ve heard more bad arguments in regards to the college football playoff this week then I heard from people during the election cycle earlier this year. 

Tomorrow, the four playoff teams will be named. It looks quite likely that Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Washington will be those four teams. 

Photography fun from Wisconsin

Over the last year and a half, I’ve picked up photography as a hobby. Thought it might be fun to occasionally share some photos on my site. These were taken this past Sunday evening in western Wisconsin. I had pulled off of the highway and started taking some rural routes. My plan was just to drive around for a few minutes, but it ended up being about an hour!

Thoughts on Ohio State and the Big Ten Championship

So excited to be in Indianapolis to see the Buckeyes play in the Big Ten Championship game tonight.

Regardless of what happens, I’m so proud of this team. In my lifetime as a Buckeye fan, from start to finish, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one team improve so much. They’ve been a fun group to watch and it’s exciting that they’re still so young.

Defense has given up too many yards the last few weeks. I think that they’ll have a defensive game plan setup to stopping Gordon. He’ll still get his yards, but as long as he’s not busting huge plays on them, I think they’ll be fine. I could see Ohio State doing a lot to load the box which will create one on one matchups in the secondary. But it’s crucial to focus on what Wisconsin does best and doing your best to slow that down. Another key is simply wrapping Gordon up. Might seem obvious but I feel defensive backs often times try to just knock a guy down. That won’t typically work on Gordon. He has great balance, speed, and power.
