The Spring Game Sucks

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?   - Robert F. Kennedy When I look at the Spring Game, this RFK quote is what comes the rum-saturated sponge that masquerades as my mind. (I'm a lot like Robert Ken...

Urban Meyer Will Retire Nick Saban

Nick Saban is the typical tinpot dictator who presides over indentured 18-22 year-olds at football programs around America. We saw what happened when he made the moves to the pros, where he didn't enjoy the same competitive advantages he had in the collegiate ranks, and was required to coach fai...

75% of Columbus should not be allowed to drive.

I love Columbus; it has the greatest reservoir of untapped potential of any metropolis in America. After washing ashore on the muddied banks of the Olentangy in 2008 with only a tortoiseshell cat named "Betsy Ross" and bottle of Lady Bligh in my possession, I have never contemplated leavin...

Why You Shouldn't Freak Out About The 2014 Class

I've seen a few partial panic-mode posts the last few days regarding the shape of our 2014 recruiting class, so I thought this blog was worth making. Here are your reasons why you shouldn't freak out about the 2014 class: 1) It's April 16th (as of midnight), that means there are a...

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17 There is some dissension among OSU fans regarding whether being a "true OSU fan" means that we should root for UM to lose in every situation: lose every game environment, lose every recruiting battle, ...

Spring Game Do's

As a resident of the city of Cincinnati I felt it my responsibility to clue some of my fellow 11Ws into Cincinnati Do's especially when it comes to the downtown area. Parking I'd surmise a vast majority will be driving and returning to their respective cities.  As such parking will...

Most Essential Ohio Get?

After reading in Gene's Quick Bits thread that Marshon Lattimore plans to visit Michigan (not a huge surprise), it got me to thinking about the sort of meltdown many fans might have if we miss on Lattimore this year -- not to mention, if Michigan were to get him haha. I feel a bit spoiled in the...

End of Basketball Season - Five Thoughts

1. I would rather have an appendectomy without anesthetic than root for AACC. Thank you Louisville! Why didn't you do that last year, Kansas? 2. What I take away from the tournament as a whole is the role of three point shooting. There are many reasons why teams win or lose but what struck me t...

Eleven Warriors is on Fire

No, really. There are flames and it's hot and OUCH. So, Derek has accepted a new position and will be taking his talents to Scout Beach. It all happened so quickly and we're very excited for him – he'll bring a fantastic skill set to his role working under Bill Greene. ...

All Eyes on Us

There are plenty of eyes outside of Columbus, Ohio that are currently pinned directly on the football and basketball programs of The Ohio State University. We know this because many are accompanied by a voice commenting on everything from our special teams coach and his ‘distaste’ for ...

Tough Outs: Perspective on Tonight's "Shocking" Loss

For many of us (and especially for the very colorfully-spoken among us on the open thread), tonight's loss to the Fighting Totos of Wichita State was probably one of the most deflating losses in a long time. Yes, the debacle and Madison was ugly, and it always hurts to lose in Ann Arbor, but the...

Top 5 College Coaches that belonged in the NFL

The NFL is known for college coaches that were bad NFL coaches, but what about the other way around? Some aren't familiar with the idea, but these people exist. Let's get with the countdown, and if there are any I missed, let me know in the comments. Okay, here we go: 5. Bill Callahan - Neb...

Playing basketball in a dome vs arena

I am not going to jinx us and predict Ohio State going to the Final Four; rather, this is about teams playing in domes in the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight games having an advantage against teams that played their Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight games in more traditional arenas.  This year Ohio S...

An Apology

I just wanted to apologize to everyone for today's Skull Session, and explain a bit about what happened. I already talked about it on twitter, but the short story is that I had not slept for a few days, ended up having to work a much longer workday than usual yesterday, and when I was finally ab...
