High School Football Rivalries

In a lot of places, Week 10 is "rivalry week." I was just curious to hear about some of the rivalries you all have been a part of or are familiar with. Some of the more prominent ones that many of you are aware of would be Canton McKinley vs. Massilon Washington, St. Ignatius vs. St. Edwar...

PSU Home Advantage is Overrated

It’s funny to me that PSU fans always look back to the 2005 OSU game to cite their great home advantage. No doubt the stadium had something to do with that win, but (though it’s hard to believe) that was SEVEN years ago. In the OSU games @ Happy Valley since then, Tod Boeckman had a care...

Last week's drive and the amazing comeback was awesome, and it's been a lot of fun comparing the drive to Holy Buckeye.  Just thinking back on Holy Buckeye and the emotions that came with that play, as well as the emotions Saturday led me to start thinking about other plays over the yea...

Title Team Reunion

I wanted to see what everyone thought on the 2002 Buckeye Championship team coming back for the Michigan game, most especially, if Jim Tressel and Clarett return.  If they do come what kind of reception do you think they will receive? I hope that they cheer for them both honestly, given the fac...

Winning is never enough in Buckeye Nation, is it?

I'm convinced there is a very vocal minority among the legions of Ohio State faithful who will never be satisfied. Not just with this team, an imperfect 8-0 squad no one expected to be 8-0 anyway, but never satisfied in general. Case in point: Saturday, after my beautiful bride spared me f...
