    Kyle,
    I’ve been reading PFB daily (4 times daily to be honest) since last basketball season. I wanted to say thank you for all your hard work. The blog def makes the week go by faster and increases the overall experience of game day.

    I started going to games as a 4 year old in 85, I endured the pain of having season tickets during the Bob Simmons era, and thought I was experiencing the “golden age” of OSU sports getting to go to a Final 4 and a Cotton bowl while being a student (boy am I glad I was wrong). Since moving out of state I don’t get to go home games nearly as often, and haven’t been able to go to any this year. I have had the chance to go to 2 road games this year, but road games aren’t the same as being with friends tailgating in Stillwater. This is where your blog helps fill that gap, and in my opinion, is what makes it better than the other blogs/message boards/news outlets available. PFB offers reaction and interaction with your halftime thoughts and twitter posts. This makes me, and I have to assume many others, feel like we’re experiencing the game with other fans. So in summary…long paragraph to basically say you’re awesome, love your ideas, and keep up the good work.

    Finally 2 thoughts
    1. I was with Gundy about K-State going for 2 if they scored. With the way CK had been running and passing why not go for 2? Go to OT and you give the best offense in the country the ball and allow a turnover creating D the more chances to make a play.

    2. If we make it to the NC game I think we will look back and be very thankful that we faced such adversity during the A&M and K-State games. These games will give our players the ability to reflect back and know that they can overcome big leads, late game leads, and be successful on a goaline/last minute stand. It’s one thing to believe you can do it, but it’s another thing to have done it and know your getting ready to do it again.
