Can we just pretend week 12 didn't happen? No?  Well, here's how I did on my bold predictions, then: 1. Oklahoma State implodes against Baylor in multiple-TD loss I'm giving myself half credit for this one, as I think you could certainly call their performance against t...

Almost the Same

It’s not the same, but it’s almost the same.  To an eleven year old boy in Columbus, Ohio back in 1969 there was no team greater than the Ohio State Buckeyes.  They were the National Champions.  They had defeated the celebrated USC Trojans and their Heisman Trophy winning star...

ENEMIES OF THE STATE Since 2012 there have been 25 players from the great state of Ohio to cross the border and play for That Team. Who were those players? What have they done in enemy territory? The most important question, have any of them defeated Ohio State? No. ...

My College Football Week 13 Rankings

I still have Iowa higher than the committee does in their top 25, and they opted for Oklahoma instead of Notre Dame for a playoff spot, but otherwise my top 6 looks pretty similar to theirs.  I still think they are short-changing North Carolina, at only 14 in their rankings (vs 11 in mine)...

What Happened? Ohio State vs Texas-Arlington

Just finished watching the replay of UT-Arlington’s 73-68 upset over the Buckeyes and 2 main things stick out the main reasons we lost that game: 1. Mental lapses on defense from literally everyone. No one was immune from losing their man completely on backdoor cuts. UT-Arlington missed pretty ...

Some Reflections On The Loss

Oh, boy. What a serious gut punch. If we're being honest here (Zeke set that standard), I can't remember the last time that I have been that upset and angry over a Buckeye loss. Maybe the loss to TTUN in 2011 but that's it. Initially, I was upset and angry because this is a loss that could have been...

Perfection Is Impossible.

My first OSU game live was a 1966 snooze-fest.   7-0 vs Indiana on a dreary day.  My first road game was November 22, 1969.  I started going to Browns games about the same time and my Dad and I had season tickets right up until they moved away.  The only time I ever saw my Dad us...

The Ohio State Effect: Michigan State

Ohio State of Mind: Michigan State

The true test begins now. The grind is over.  It's time to let loose because there's no one left on our schedule who won't challenge us and fight us to the very end.  Same goes for our TBD schedule, which could be an even more daunting task than what lies directly ahead.  Forge...
