It’s a miserable morning in Columbus this morning — unseasonably cold, gray, with a driving, soaking rain. In short, it’s a perfect morning to rewatch the Buckeyes’ triumph over Indiana Thursday night.
I like the weekend morning rewatch. You plop down on the couch, stretch your legs out onto the coffee table, and enjoy a steaming cup of joe and some orange juice, besides. The morning rewatch is a relaxed affair. You know it’s a good outcome — if it weren’t, you wouldn’t be watching it again, right? — so the pressure is off. You can skip the crappy parts (in Ohio State’s case, that means fast-forwarding through virtually all of the first half), focus in on the good parts, and pay more attention to the nuts and bolts, like blocking and tackling and route-running.
I always feel like I’ve got a better grip on the game after a good morning rewatch. And coffee goes well with football, too.
