The Irony Of An Undefeated Season

This year's edition of the OSU football Buckeyes still have some valley's to cross in order to enjoy the glory of 12-0, but at 9-0 the odds are looking better.  I was pondering this week about another team in the not too distant past that had some commonalities with this Buckeye team. C...

Did I do the right thing?

I need your input to a parenting cunundrum I created.  Last night at dinner with the family we were talking about how the different states in our wonderful country got their names.  My youngest son asked how Ohio got its name and I told him I thought the word was from the Native Americans...

Safe to go back to State College!

My dad and I made the trip to Happy Valley on Saturday.  After what I had read here on 11W, I was a bit trepidatious.  I had read many horror stories about poor treatment of our fans by theirs.  So I wasn't sure what to expect.  I was worried enough that I roleplaye...

15 years ago on buckeyefanatic.com ...

When I was 15 years younger, 15 years dumber, 15 years less married ... I had a great idea.  A buckeye website.  There were only a couple sites out there and although I was grateful for the access one in particular gave me to Ohio State news while I was in the military overseas in the mid-...

JoePa, The Vest and Lance Armstrong

Lydell Ross really got me thinking this week. Actually, that's not entirely true... Lance Armstrong got me thinking this week, and then Lydell Ross really got me thinking. It all started as I was pondering the "legacy" of the now forever tainted cycling superstar. When the latest rou...

Who Is . . . Penn State?

Who is Penn State?  Well, if you have been spending any time following sports media you would know they are the hottest team in CFB.  If you read through any PSU message board, they are the New England Patriots with a better defense, and of course better uniforms.  Bill O'Bri...
