Is that what my Buckeyes are? Only good enough to beat the teams that they can beat, but not even compete against the squads that they can't? I have always, always wondered what do teams, people like that think?
The cat who lived around the corner from me, who I could only beat once, was a world amateur champ, and beat some flat out famous cats growing up, so when I moved from Detroit, and finally got a chance to grow, I did have a run, that is before I tripped myself.
But as good as he was, he never left the confines of his hometown, and didn't even get a chance to grow as a pro. Later in our careers, when I was a little hot stuff fighting for money, they tried to match us ... but it would have been a back step for me, cause he hadn't grown into anything to justify the risk.
To me, if you haven't taken your stuff to where the brightest light are shining, you haven't earn the right to stick your 'achievements' in my face. If you are going to reach, may as well reach for the stars, otherwise, you are just campin'! Somehow, you only cheat yourself by never finding out, and you cheat the world of being the person that it needed.
... if that makes any sense. I just know it does to me.
