PSU - My Own 5 Things

Blog style so I don't have to worry about length.   One. Great job Buckeyes. That was the most complete performance of the year, under possibly the harshest circumstances. There is only one 9-0 FCS team and it resides in Cbus, and #9 was no fluke. Way. To. Go. Two. What happened yesterda...

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...

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...

My Top Five Buckeye Highlights on YouTube

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...

Is Braxton overhyped, or Rodney Dangerfield?

Braxton Miller is an exciting, electrifying quarterback. While Kenny Guiton was obviously the toast of olde Columbus town Saturday night, it is pretty clear that Miller is still the big man on campus. That said, I'm trying to decide if the young stud is a victim of his own hype, or if he d...

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...
