First Florida, now California. Lucky all you at the game. :) Everyone still stuck in the snow in the Northeast. I’m still in Pittsburgh. Temps heading below 0 tonight. 1 degree currently! 
 
This may not be the day that the Power Spread officially makes it’s statement as FSU has loads of talent and an unusual Freshman QB. Add in a great up and comer, Defensive Coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, plus the near flawless execution the Noles have shown all year and this may be a difficult day for Auburn (Read More).
 
Still, never underestimate the Power Spread. Malzahn’s offense can score against anyone, regardless of talent. If Auburn can stay close – they have the experience as FSU hasn’t had any close games. The question will be Can Auburn Stay Close?
 
NO MATTER, IF ITS NOT THIS YEAR ITS NEXT YEAR, AND THE NEXT, AND THE NEXT.
POWER SPREAD IS HERE TO STAY!

PREGAME

In a year where the gang (except for Craig) struggled to get to the OSU Bar, watching the “Bowl in the Sun”, in the after effects of the Northeast Snowstorm, seems appropriate. We are all stuck in our homes (I’m still in Pittsburgh), except for, of course, Craig. We are going to have to make it up to Craig during the Basketball Season and next year’s Football. Hopefully the OSU Bar will move back to Times Square (see pic) in a more Sports friendly environment for 2014. 
 
I WILL MAKE AN EARLY PREDICTION – there will be a new OSU Bar for 2014, that we will all enjoy on a regular basis and finally get that semi elusive National Championship to officially cement the Urban Meyer era and the Power Spread once and for all!
 
What we will be doing for years to come!
POWER SPREAD AND OSU GREATNESS IS HERE TO STAY! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE RIDE!

As much as it pains me, this picture above of Charles White about to receive the handoff in the 1980 Rose Bowl out of the Power I says it all. It was the beginning of the end for my beloved Undefeated Buckeyes and their National Championship hopes that season.
 
This was also the beginning of my long running hatred for USC and teams that always seemed to have the Buckeyes number – even unto the present time. It took me a long time to understand why this happened repeatedly to my Buckeyes. I was so excited for the 2008 revenge of the Buckeyes. The  debacle that followed fueled even more hatred towards USC, which I finally channeled productively into discovering what was wrong with OSU!?
 
For the first time as a football fan and former player, I had some understanding. Studying this game finally made me realize the part that Concepts, Ideas and Schemes play in the Game of Football as well as the Game of LIfe.  
 
It is appropriate that the Offensive mastermind of that ill fated Buckeye loss, Steve Sarkisian, was recently named the new Head Coach at USC. His schemes and game planning had more to do with my wake up call than any other coach out there.
 
Here’s my story…
