Step up for Stephanie Spielman

Not sure if this has been posted anywhere else on the site, or if this is the correct location, but I figured the cause is worth it. In July 1998, when she was just 30 years old, Stefanie Spielman was diagnosed with breast cancer. During her courageous battle, she not...

Ohio State has seen it's share of elite running backs in the school's illustrious history of playing college football. Names such as Eddie, Archie, Byars, Clarrett, Cassady, Harley, Johnson, Beanie, and Spencer jump out at first glance but others such as Pepe Pearson, Michael Wiley, Joe Mon...

My Cat Disapproves of the PAC12

Guys, Yeah it's a down year for the B1G (again).  Yeah, the defense is a sieve.  Yeah, the B1G has less respect than Rodney (Dangerfield, not King). Sick and tired hearing the same hyperbole over and over again?  I bet all B1G fans are.  I live in Pac12 country (L...

New Buckeye music!

I know it may seem blasphemous to want to listen to anything other than Across the Field, Buckeye Battle Cry, and Hang on Sloopy on a 3 song loop for gameday, but I humbly come to you proposing an alternative!   OSU marching band alumnus, jazz studies graduate, current trumpet player for OAR,...

Unleash the Giant

Braxton MIller is the greatest running quarterback I have ever seen.  He may not be a long ball pass threat but he runs as effortlessly as Jim Brown and sees openings that always progress him forward.  He has the finess of Pele and Paul Warfield combined.  His acceleration and deceler...

2010 recruiting class. What happened?

I was just looking back and realized this has to be one of the most maligned classes in recent memory. on paper it was a halfway decent class by OSU standards, coming in at #14 but out of the 20 members, only 12 remain, and of that twelve only half of them are decent/good: Norwell, Hankins, Bryant, ...

Glass Half-Full, Half-Empty: Week 4

We're back with Glass Half-Full, Half-Empty. This week we look at the scare in the Shoe provided by Cal and ahead to UAB - a game neither one of us really care about. However, John takes it so seriously that he trusts his prediction to a bunch of fourth graders.   Me: There is nothing wro...

High School Cheeleader With Brain Tumor/Cancer

There is a senior high school cheerleader here in my town who had a brain tumor and just went through 9+ hours of surgery yesterday.  They got the majority of it, but not all and found that she actually has a rare form of cancer.  This has been a trying time for her family and our communit...

Big Ten Football

I can't ever remember the big ten looking so bad.  I am so tired of arguing from my freinds down south about our league.  We don't have one legitimate top 10 team.  It is down right sad. I think we are getting better, but it will take some time.  Michigan is recruiting we...


After watching today i realized how valuable he really is. the thing that was missing in that puntfest of a 3rd quarter was the ability to run downhill and hit cal in the mouth. i just wanted to see dunn put in to run straight up the middle a few times just to make them respect it. we gave them no r...


I just turned on College Gameday for the first time in about 2 years. They were doing a piece on Urban and his family contract. Once they went into the Cal matchup and showed Braxton highlights the delightful folks in Knoxville break out into the SEC chant. Amazing. Do they not honestly know where t...

Glass Half-Full, Half-Empty: Week 3

I'm changing my game a bit. I invited my friend John - the biggest glass-half-empty fan I've ever known - to share some thoughts on where the Buckeyes stand right now... Me: Wow! What a great win over a solid opponent. The Buckeyes start out the season 2-0 with a two-score win over what cou...
