Ash to Ash - Unioto Football Lore

It's the off season, and while there are those who may not care about a high school that has never competed on a state level, I certainly do.  So I'm going to post five blogs, this being the second, each five days apart (two fives... oddly familiar...) on the football lore of the school I love ...

Trusting the Process - Matta's Long-Term Strategy

The Buckeyes just got smashed 100-65 by Maryland in a performance that was highly upsetting for Buckeye fans. After some early season losses it looked like the team had turned the corner with a big win over Kentucky on a neutral court. They followed up with a solid start the the Big Ten schedule, bu...

The world has changed me.

  This morning everyone in my house was getting ready for school/work. Today is pajamas day for the kids, so my daughter (6) just kept hers on. My son (8) on the other hand decided a year or two ago that he didn't want anymore actual pjs and just wears t-shirt and shorts.  Nothing wro...

The Yin & Yang of JaQuan Lyle & A.J. Harris

On Sunday, the Buckeyes narrowly defeated Illinois in a game that ended much closer than it should have been due to some clutch 3-pointers by the Illini when the game seemed out of reach. It was a big win that propelled the Buckeyes to 2-0 in conference play as they head to Northwestern (13-2) on We...

Moved to forum.

Moving to forum I appreciate deeply the dedication to Ohio State of these early entries. While I hate to say goodbye prematurely to these young men (I am a fan after all)... if I were in their shoes, with a Round 1 - 3 grade, I wouldn't hesitate to go to the NFL. They've accomplished th...
