I am admittedly an old fart, but I wish someone would explain the fascination kids have today with tattoos. Tattos used to be a simple anchor or "mom" or some old girlfriends name, and they were usually the result of excessive alcohol and a dare. Now they obviously are well thought out and take more than a small investment of time and money. Can you young hipster dudes out there help me understand?

Wisconsin dropped baseball as a sport in 1991. They had budget issues and concerns about the lower number of women's sports on campus, i.e. issues with Title IX. Here's a good link about the situation. There is some discussion about bringing it back.

I've spent the entire winter, except for a trip back to the shoe for the celebration in January, here in Clearwater, Fl. I wear my Buckeye stuff quite a lot and get numerous comments and more then the occasional OH..... Spring training games seem to be a hot spot of comments. It's good to be the king!!!!!!!

One thing is clear though, the rash in personal areas here in FLA over Urban Meyer is still very raw. The Bucks winning it all made it even sorer.

Why is his leaving seen to be inevitable? What's wrong with being a highly compensated # 2 man in an organization that consistently competes and wins National Championships? This may be his sweet spot and he loves it here. When Urban decides he's won enough and heads for the TV booth or golf course or fishing boat, Warinner would be a fine replacement.

67 Camaro, 327 only a 2 bbl and a coupe, but a nice car for a kid. Bought it in Springfield and took it to campus in 1970. Moved to Detroit after graduation to work for one of the Big 3 and the car was stolen in less than 6 months. In 1987 I bought another 67,  a 350 4 speed convertible. She is being restored now and we will grow even older together.

Don't you know everyone gets a trophy nowadays.

Troy Smith was one of the best we've seen in college. Maybe he should sit with Braxton and make sure he knows how difficult it is to make a career of quarterback in the NFL.  Yikes, Dennard Robinson seems to be making a go of it in Jacksonville running and catching the ball. Braxton is at least Robinson's equal as a runner and athlete.

With Hairball around now, it looks like Farentz or Kill won't be getting that annual BIG coach of the year award anymore. He hasn't done anything yet. Should also be a front runner for Nobel Peace Prize based on past history. They may do a movie someday, so the in an Oscar right away.

Good read abut Sam Hubbard. He sounds like another amazing kid. Am I being too much of a homer when I think all the kids the Buckeyes recruit aren't just great athletes and football players but also special people? It seems like just about all of them really have their heads screwed on straight. I don't think there is a limit to how much this team and coaching staff can accomplish with guys like this. Is it September yet?

My message to the 2015 Buckeyes, for what it's worth would be as follows:

"This is a new season and a new team.  Every team and season are different. The team that won last year did great things but it is gone. It  proved it was the best then. What it did doesn't help this team at all now or going forward. This years team has accomplished nothing. What others say about how good or bad you are mean nothing. The only thing that means anything is how hard you work as individuals and as a team to prove on the field to everyone that this team is the best now."  

If the 2015 Buckeyes believe this, they can be special.

Packer fan here too. Agree completely. AJ gave Green Bay his best for 9 years, but lots of people there didn't appreciate him for his solid, consistent play and leadership. He's not flashy, just a good solid football player. He'll do well in Cincy.
