Mornings don't get much finer than this one on a gorgeous day at the Horseshoe. Tailgates are in full swing, and Ohio State is a couple hours away from opening Big Ten play against Rutgers in ideal Big Ten weather.

Eager to hear Tom Rinaldi's interview w/ Les Miles. (But I REALLY wanna hear about the long chat they had after the cameras were off)
