    Let's all pour out a drink for our beloved tacosaban ... who could have seen that coming?



    "We are Chompions, so no lies between us. He wasn't the greatest member, he wasn't the worst. He made some good passes and a whole lot of bad ones. But the mother f*cker had his moments, yes he did. You remember the time he didn't show up to offseason? We definitely moved faster because of that! And going for two against Tony, that was tacosaban at his best. He won as much as he lost (well, not really), as much as any of us (definitely not really)."

    By the way if you don't get this reference, or this video, or The Wire ... quit your job. Quit Chompions League. Quit all of your hobbies and go enjoy the greatest five seasons of television ever.

    What made that show so great is that it wasn't your cookie cutter good cop/bad cop b.s. like all the other shows centered around police.

    BUCKEYES STUN #1
    A year ago Wisconsin knocked off Ohio State in the Big Ten championship, eliminating the Buckeyes from national title contention. On Saturday Ohio State may have returned the favor, by edging past the Badgers in rainy Columbus, 35-31.

    After falling behind early 14-3, the No. 8 ranked Buckeyes charged back to tie the game at 17 just before halftime. The Buckeyes did so behind the play of freshman quarterback TY Suggs, who drove the offense down field with :35 seconds left in the half and no timeouts.

    The Buckeyes would take the lead early in the third quarter, but after falling behind 24-20, Suggs made his only mistake off the game. On a jet sweep triple option, the freshman made an errant toss which Wisconsin scooped up. The Badgers would score a few plays later to take a commanding 31-20 lead.

    The tide would turn in the fourth quarter, however, as the Buckeyes played their best quarter of the season, perhaps of the Speyer era, while Wisconsin faltered under questionable playcalling. After tailback Erik Reyes punched it in the end zone on the third play of the fourth quarter, Suggs hit senior Gabe Jackson off play action for the 2-point play. On the ensuing Wisconsin drive, always accurate quarterback D.J. Yates forced a curl into Cover 2 defense for the game's only interception. Ohio State made their rivals pay on the very next play, as Suggs once again found Jackson off of play action, this time for a 23-yard go-ahead touchdown.

    THe defining moment of the game would come on the next drive, however, as Wisconsin was faced with a fourth-and-1 in the red zone with just over two minutes remaining. The Badgers lined up in the power-I, but Coach Cieske elected to give the ball to speed back Cory Russell instead of the senior bulldog David Keyes. As Russell shifted toward the near boundry, true freshman cornerback Xavier Christian met him in the backfield and halted the ball carrier's forward progress. Senior defensive tackle Nick Nelson swarmed in to finish the play, giving Ohio State possession and all but ensuring the upset.

    "With so many top recruits in attendance, that was a big one to have," said Speyer, who has now defeated Wisconsin in consecutive regular seasons. "But more importantly, it was a big one to have for the guys on the field. We had a lot of young guys make big plays today. TY was phenomenal at quarterback. Xavier made the play of the game defensively. This win builds a lot of confidence, but build is the key word. This has to be a building block. We're not back yet. We're not done yet."

    Any chance you could post that scramble by Yates?

    I will give this to tacosaban. He came very close to beating pretty much everyone he played.
