Sorry about the lack of response last week, but things got a little quiet in the OTE clubhouse last week with the Thanksgiving holiday throwing everything and everyone into disarray. And as anyone knows, once you’ve fallen into a pit of being out of the office, it’s an adventure digging back out. So with that in mind, here we go:

Hello and welcome to the unofficial beginning of the offseason. For five of our teams, we’ve reached the unfortunate (or maybe fortunate, if we’re honest) end of the road and now we’ve got to huddle around conference championship games and weird bowl games to stay warm until spring practice (If you get too cold, you could always get close to the tirefire that is Gopher Hockey. Plenty of heat coming off that inferno after last weekend.). Sure some of you may take solace in other sports, but everyone knows that OTE is all about hating other teams and football. So now it’s time to start trying to distract ourselves however possible. Go ahead and ask us anything that’s on your mind and we’ll actually try to answer the questions this week. Now that we’re approaching the end, maybe we’ll even start digging into questions on individual teams or rank things. Fire away, and let’s see what happens together.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and know that I really really hate all your teams. A lot.
