Hello from Phoenix

Hello Buckeye fans. We've completed the first day of interviews in preparation for the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game. Our first impression: Don't tell the Florida Gators they are the underdog for this game. That may be one of the tacks coach Urban Meyer uses as motivation, but check out this reaction from Florida linebacker Brandon Siler, on Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith: "We are not afraid of Troy Smith at all." To be fair, Siler went on to call Smith a great player and a great quarterback, but that first reaction took us by surprise.

That's all for right now. We're headed to the Buckeyes practice and hope to get a few words from Coach Tressel.
