1-0: All that matters

I will start this by saying that I am always an optimist when it comes to the Buckeyes. Going into every year, I think it can be like 2002 was. The number of years since I have been a fan that we came close is amazing and agonizing all at once (1974, 1975, 1979, 1993, 1995, 1998, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2...

The Buckeye Necklace from Hell

I'm not normally a superstitious guy... except when it comes to Ohio State.  In 2006, before the Penn State game, I bought this necklace at the Central Classroom bookstore right near the Shoe. It's a nice, non-offensive, mass market version of what some other people wear. Nothing near w...
