Friday Skull Session

Good morning, Buckeye fans, and welcome to Friday! I'd say we should all get this party started, but it seems our old pal, Art, started without us. Stay away from drugs, kids. They're just bad news, and... isn't food addiction more fun anyway? I think so. Just don't ask Paula Deen about that. 

Before I go off on an endless food tangent, which I'm completely capable of (insane In N Out craving, at the moment), let's get to the good stuff.

SPRING BREAK, 2012! Save the date, Buckeye fans. Ohio State announced this week that the 2012 Spring Game will take place April 21st at 1:30pm EST. 

This year's spring game will be the first Tressel-less one in quite some time, and also serves as the first opportunity for fans to witness the much anticipated Urban Meyer-coached Buckeyes. Ohio State spring games in the past have seen as many as 95k in attendance (a national record), and with the excitement around the Urban Meyer hire, this year could quite possibly put that to shame. Take that, again, Nick Saban. 

What could make witnessing the arrival of Urban Meyer's offense even more fun? A post-game night of debauchery with your favorite Buckeye-obsessed basement dwellers. How does one secure such a fabulous opportunity? Well, lift your jaw off the ground, and read up on the 11W Respect the Basement Fundraiser.

CAM YOU DIG IT?! I'm not sure if you're aware, but Eleven Warriors' own Alex Gleitman is on top of it. Cam Burrows made his commitment to Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class official yesterday, and you can read Alex's post on the announcement, as well as watch Burrow's video highlights, here

In addition to being a huge get for Urban Meyer, Burrows has the privilege of attending Defensive Back U, as Ohio State boasts 11 DBs on NFL rosters, the most in the nation. Miami and LSU trail with ten and nine, respectively.

Cam not only serves as a great addition to the future Ohio State football team, but also, according to Alex, might be the catalyst to several verbal pledges that may be heading Urban's way in the coming weeks.

Given the history of Urban's recruits named Cam, let's just keep an eye on his parents. [Insert the flashing of a playful grin here].

Chris Russell/Columbus DispatchOne underclassmen who will be around for awhile.

COLLEGE DROPOUTS. The NFL announced Thursday that 65 underclassmen will be declaring for the NFL draft this year. Not only does this top the previous record, last year's 56, it pretty much shatters it.

While some early departures, such as Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon and USC OT Matt Kalil, weren't big surprises, Oregon QB Darron Thomas did provide a few chuckles earlier this week when he announced he'd be entering the draft. What draft? Oh, the NFL Draft? What is he smoking? (Cliff Harris wasn't kidding.)

For those who like to see players return for their senior seasons, it wasn't all bad... USC's QB, and Heisman hopeful, Matt Barkley opted to stay (and got a championship parade-ish press conference, in return), as did Wisconsin RB Montee Ball, Alabama OL Barrett Jones, and Oklahoma QB Landry Jones (no comment, some jokes write themselves).

HE'S A MAN! HE'S COACH OF THE YEAR! Is this joke getting old yet? I really hope not. I've found most guys are suckers for a girl at the bar with a well-timed Mike Gundy reference, and I'm not quite sure I can pull this off.

But, back to the point, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy won the Paul "Bear" Bryant College Coach of the Year Award on Thursday night, beating out Les Miles, Brady Hoke, Bret Bielema, Bill Snyder, and quite a few others. Seriously, the list was longer than that of Antonio Cromartie's kids. (Speaking of jokes that will never get old to me...)

Gundy's Cowboys went 12-1 this season, with their sole loss coming in double OT to the 6-6 Iowa State Cyclones. The Oklahoma State coach has been outspoken this year about his support for a four team playoff system, and he used some of his time before the ceremony Thursday to spread that message some more. 

Former Iowa head coach Hayden Frye was also honored at the ceremony, as the recipient of the Bryant Lifetime Achievement Award (awarded by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association). Though Frye is most commonly associated with his time at Iowa, he was also the first head coach to give a scholarship to an African-American in the south, in 1966, during his time at SMU. Upon accepting the award, Frye said, "I can't think of anyone I'd rather be associated with than coach Bryant. We were very close friends. He told me a lot of things that helped me win football games throughout my career."

WEED, THE ULTIMATE GATOR BAIT. It seems the Florida arrest record that many pinned on Urban Meyer, may not have been an Urban Meyer issue, after all. Florida Gator DT Leon Orr was arrested this month, on marijuana charges. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Orr makes Florida's ninth arrest since Will Muschamp took over as head coach one year ago. Orr is apparently also the sixth Florida player, during Muschamp's tenure, to be arrested for marijuana charges, already topping the total of four during Meyer's time as the Gators' head coach.

I'm not sure what kind of weed they're smoking in Gainesville, but if it's producing .500 seasons, they should call up the Honey Badger, and ask for his synthetic stuff.

FRIDAY FUNDAY. The college football Wikipedia pages we all want to see... To the fine people of the state of Alabama: Hide your trees, hide your teabags... Brush up on your recruiting lingo... This can't be real life... Just because life is short, and this all looks delicious... I dare you not to smile... Want to know who to watch for, this Sunday?

Ahhhhhh - Burger Chef - haven't even heard that mentioned in 20 years!  Wow.  Yum.

I was kinda surprised to scroll down and see everyone's first comment was on In-N-Out. When I read that from Elika, my first thought was 'Wow, she's not a Ohioan anymore, she's a full-on Californian'.  I figure Californians are the only ones who like that place. My wife loves to go there. I actually think their food sucks.

btalbert25's picture

On a visit to San Diego, I had In-N-Out, and I have to say I loved it, for fast food.  Much like I love a Wendy's Burger.  However, if I want just a good burger, though I suppose it's still fast food, I prefer 5 guys to a drive through place.  I found a new love though.  We have a place here in NKY, family owned, called Mad Mikes.  It's really good.  I suggest anyone in the Greater Cincinnati area to look them up and give them a try.  It will involve crossing the river and making a trek to Florence, but it's well worth it.  

ArTbkward's picture

As a Greater Cincinnatian, are you a Skyline lover? 

I lived there for two years but that's all it took to convert me.  4-way all the way!

much like relationships, I love a good 5-way myself.

yeah....I said it.

But seriously Skyline's dogs are like crack. The good kind. Covered in chili and onions and cheese.

Two restaurants I miss the most are Skyline and White Castles!!!  We have BW3s out here so my wing food group is satisfied.  The other two are woefully lacking in my diet since I headed west.

I really like Skyline, but prefer some of the smaller places like Dixie Chili and Camp Washington Chilli.  Skyline is nice because there is a lot of variety.  You can get burritos, 3,4,and 5 way baked potatoes etc.  The other places are mostly coneys and Spaghetti dishes.

Used to have Skyline in Toledo too. I was sorry to see them leave the Toledo market.

Just had some last night. So pumped they came to Dallas

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Went there when I was in Dallas the other day. Every once in a while in life, you come across something that fully lives up to the hype. In-n-Out is one of them.

Re today's poll, we now live in a world where the least objectionable Super Bowl champion is the team that's already won five of them. Is the rest of this season even worth watching?

Nerkbuckeye's picture

Oh yea--Five Guys--after eating the fries I can hardly walk out of the establishment

bassplayer7770's picture

Agreed.  I suppose it's normal for them to give you a bag full of fries like they did for me?

Squirrel Master's picture

yes. if you are with someone you might want to share your fries. I can never finish mine. also, its the kind of place you get free peanuts while you wait. and you just peal off that foil and the burger is just sloppy and greasy. FG is very good.

I still say I prefer local diners and cafes. those are the ones you see on DD&D. not chains.

Poison nuts's picture

Five Guys is all the way live (that's hip hop lingo) for sure. If you ever go to In & Out - ask for your burger "animal style". You won't find that on the menu but you'll be glad you ordered it that way! Just a little tip from your uncle Bob.

Whataburger! I'm glad someone else said this. Had them down in Texas and I was hooked!

Baroclinicity's picture

Here is a good substitue for an original Whataburger if you live in an area that doesn't have that restuarant:  Go to Burger King, order a Whopper, but sub mustard for the ketchup and mayo.  Works pretty well in my opinion.

buckeyedude's picture

What kind of burger does Urban eat? That's the one I want!

 
 

ArTbkward's picture

He doesn't eat burgers, he eats steak with a side of sauteed hopes and dreams of other B1G schools.  Probably the 14 ouncer that will soon be his namesake at Hyde Park.

Northbrook's picture

Never tried In-n-out or Whataburger but there used to be a place in Columbus named GD Ritzy's. Damn good burgers, fries and shakes. I must have put on 30lbs when they were here and lost it when they left. I hope they don't come back. "I'm glad you're gone cause I'm finally alone. I'm glad you're gone but I wish you'd come home."

5 Guys is okay but over priced. I can see why it costs as much as it does they must have a dozen people working at once.

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

I'm sure all of the scorned Gator fans are blaming Urban for this latest up in smoke issue.  Puff puff pass Gators!!!

As a Buckeye living down here in Florida - I can tell you they are indeed blaming him for this marijuana thing as well as every other problem that occurs in the state of Florida. The mortgage situation, unemployment, lack of rain, too much rain, mosquitos in January, etc...He's taken quite a bit of heat off Obama for the time being.

Happy Birthday Elika!

 

PS, new idea to up the creepiness of this site, a Buckeye Birthday page, keeps track of all the Buckeye great's birthdates so we can celebrate them on those special Skull Sessions. It would have the added bonus of maybe preventing 11W from printing critical articles of players on their freakin' b-days! (I'm looking at you Johnny)

Lived a couple blocks from In-n-out back in California and I liked there burgers..nothing to make a big deal about, but good. Wendy's has a burger that tastes just like a double double called the Wendys burger or W burger..whatevs..satifies my Inn-N-out cravings out here in New Yawk.

BUCKEYES BABY!

I love how the head coaches or how anyone is being blamed for the players smoking weed in Florida. HELLO!!!! Swamp country down there. I was a Florida native for 28 years and guess what, its kinda a good place to grow the crap. hot and humid and easy to hide.

Sorry, burger chains are nothing against a good local cafe! Haven't got a chance to try it yet but can't wait to have a good Thurman burger.

We just got a Jack in the Box in Indy this past Monday but I haven't been able to go since there has been hour + long lines every day.  They even had to have cops direct traffic. 

Theres also a place in Denver called Good Times that has excellent food.  In-N-Out tops them all though.

Just me, but I would say steer clear of Jack in the Box!  At least the ones in California were no good...

Nappy's picture

I've only had it in St. Louis and San Antonio, but they were both fattening and awesome.  Those tacos...

This made me laugh... I have a problem with tacos that have American Cheese corners sticking out of them  :)

Baroclinicity's picture

There's a great fast food Mexican restaurant chain in Texas called Taco Bueno.  Blows Taco Bell away...

Run_Fido_Run's picture

I've never been to Gringos Tacos, so don't know if they're any good - I was using their ad facetiously, as in . . . if you built the ultimate gringo taco, what would you put on to it? Maybe American cheese, un-spiced hamburger, thousand island dressing, iceburg lettuce, coleslaw, Chi-Chi's salsa, Fritos corn chips?

Baroclinicity's picture

Maybe instead of the 1000 Island dressing and Chi Chi's salsa, how about just ketchup?

Maestro's picture

Bueno is good.  In Oklahoma as well.

vacuuming sucks

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Perfect! We've basically built a cheeseburger on a crunchy taco shell - the ultimate gringo taco!

My memory sucks. I've had awesome Mexican/T-Mex in SF, San Diego, Tucson, and San Antonio, but would need to look at phone directories, etc., to refresh my memory of restaurant names.

I used to go to a restaurant right near Mission San Juan Capistrano (north of SD) that was very good.

Taco Bueno is OK as fast food goes, but unless you're in a real hurry or are really pinching pennies, there's nowhere in Texas where you can't get better Mexican for just a little bit more.

Mi Cocina is a great local chain in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Yeah Jack in the Box is not good at all.  I ate there 2 times when in Southern California and the first time I ate it was bad, the 2nd time it was worse.

And a ton more I can't remember.  I do remember asking my grandpa to take me there instead of McDonalds as a kid, and not being able to stand their food.

That happened here in Toledo when they opened a Sonic a couple of years ago. I'm sorry, but I'll  be damned if I am going to go to a fast food restaurant that has to have police direct traffic. Now they get less business than Big Boy.

I was in Yuma in 2010 and had the opportunity to eat some in n out. I thought if the place could ruin one of the greatest seasons in tOSU history, I should give them a try. Wasn't impressed. I think 5 guys is better. As far as Yuma was concerned, I preferred del taco.

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

NC_Buckeye's picture

5 Guys is ex-pen-sive. Have to save up to eat there. Since Wendys upgraded their burgers, I'd have to say they are my burger of choice. As good or better than 5 Guys.

Have never eaten at In N Out. We have Char-Grill down here in Raleigh. It's a drive-up burger & shake joint. Wonder if they're similar. Anyways, I still prefer the new Wendys burgers.

bassplayer7770's picture

Wendy's had some fantastic chicken sandwiches at one point last year.  It's really too bad they didn't keep them on the menu permanently.

Just hit up any cookout in NC. Good burgers, shakes, fries etc. all cheap and very good.

Nappy's picture

I think NC style BBQ is the best.  I always get the  NC pulled pork at City BBQ.  Maestro would probably disagree, but he would be wrong.

Fan of bacon since 1981

William's picture

Have to agree with you NC pulled pork is amazing, especially if it's drenched in Tobasco or Texas Pete.

NC_Buckeye's picture

Forgot about Cookout. Good catch William. I'd say Char-Grill and Cookout are about equal as far as burger stands.

Although I like NC BBQ a lot, my favorite is VA BBQ. Specifically a place called Alexander's BBQ in Richmond. About a year ago, I considered moving back to Richmond and I had Alexander's on the Pro side of my Pro/Con list.

I grew up in central-eastern Ohio and we had all these little mom & pop Italian restaurants that made the best pizza and Italian food in the world IMO. (I laugh at the "yankees" down here that go on about NY-style pizza. PA-THE-TIC. They don't have a clue as to what good pizza tastes like.)

Anyways, the way pizza was to my home area is how BBQ is to NC. The best places are known by all the locals, they're usually single-location family-owned restaurants. They're packed on the weekends when people typically eat out. And each one is slightly different but equally as awesome as the others.

My current favorite NC BBQ is Parker's BBQ in Wilson.

We have Del Taco here and Denver and I've tried three locations. Gotta disagree with you there. Their meat is mediocre at best and leaves you feeling like you just ate something toxic.

Anyone remember a place called Little Athens?  There were two of them, one right across from the student union and the other at Lane and High where BW3 is now (will never call it Buffalo Wild Wings).  They both shut down in 1996 so I'm kind of going way back.  Anyway, those were our family restaurants.  I spent a lot of time down on campus in those days.  I can't comment on any of the other gyro places because it would have traitorous to eat there.

(Baroclinicity, I think we may have had a little sidebar about this a while back and you didn't recall.)

Baroclinicity's picture

Yes, I remember we had this talk, and no I still can't remember the place :)

I've never had a gyro from BD. I was an Apollo's fan.

Apollos is the best on campus, Buckeye Donuts is good but not Apollos good

Apollos is definately the winner in the campus area. I always thought Buckeye Donuts was overrated, but I certainly stopped there enough times on the drunk walk back to my house.

Next time you are in Vegas - you HAVE to go to Hash House A Go Go!!! Oh my god, the food is incredible and the size of the portions is just massive.  The Snicker's Bar Pancakes and the Captian Crunch Pancakes are worth stabbing somebody over!!!

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

Just right down 580 W from you in the Dublin/Pleasanton area.  It's always exciting to be out and about and bump into someone wearing Buckeye gear.  It's not entirely uncommon in the bay area, but for some reason, I automatically feel a kinship to these total strangers.
