Been attending Buckeye games since 1954. College football is the greatest game ever invented. The NFL merely capitalized on the fame of the great college players it recruited to Play-for-Pay. Not anti-NFL really, just know that college teams are way more fun to watch and its players, way easier to cheer for.

You were born in LA, but moved to Marion?  You poor dear.  In some jurisdictions, that's child abuse.

No reason to mock the SEC over this one.  Kwon knew where he wanted to be because he's the best.  So he picked the best.  The SEC will always get a ton of great players from the South, but the cream will rise to the top and head to Ohio as long as Urban maintains his intensity and keeps winning Championships.  We got Raekwon and we'll get other exceptional talents out of SEC country.  Those guys want to play for Champions.

DJ, the line about the English language being strangled to death right before our eyes is as accurate a statement as anyone on the Internet is likely to make today.  Congratulations on your insight and for your wonderful sense of humor.  You have a way with words, whether you care to admit it or not.  Love your stuff.

Agree 100%.  The two East Coast guys were afraid of the competition once they compared tOSU depth chart to Maryland's, Rutgers' and Tennessee's.  Who wants a guy whose idea of a good program is one where he gets to start right away and play his career with inferior teammates?  Enjoy mediocrity fellas.  Nobody wants to coach "Average" at Ohio State.

You go 364 days a year listening to other people lie pretty much 24/7, then, once a year, we're supposed to celebrate the art of deceit.  Must be like life everyday in Moscow, Beijing or Tehran.

Hope they didn't tell him he could only commit after they know what Guarantano wants to do.  I'd take this young man in a heart beat over Haskins and Guarantano because they're afraid of the competitive situation at tOSU at QB.  Tristen's not.  Case closed..

I'm a loyal 11 Warriors guy who's here every day, 365.  I come here for information and intelligent analysis of all things Buckeye.  I absolutely love this site.

But I certainly don't come here for blasphemy!  'Skyline is terrible'???  Excuse me.  The only foodstuff on earth named after an Ohio City [Lima beans aren't really from Lima] and beloved by connoisseurs around the world.  Put a little cinnamon in your homemade chili and the uninitiated will swoon and nominate you for a Michelin star.  That's the stuff you call 'terrible'?  My God, man.  What have they done with your taste buds?  I get that you're Irish and likely find boiled potatoes a little spicy, but I can't believe that lousy Irish whisky has so rotted your tongue that you've lost all sense of taste. 

Not all of us are so lucky to live in Marion, Ohio where a great Cincinnati chili is within easy reach.  I'm cursed to live in Maryland.  Crabs?  Sure, out the wazoo.  But Cincinnati chili four ways?  That's a once-a-year treat for guys like me.  In the future, I would urge our writer to be more considerate of the ancient among us, who have long-held affections that we are wont to see trampled upon on our favorite sports page.  Plus, Urb's on our side, so ...

The really great news for Weber is that he doesn't have to get coached by Tom Wilcher anymore.  He can join a team with grown-up coaches who don't bask in the reflected glory of teen-aged football players.  I suppose tOSU needs a good relationship with this assclown for future recruiting, but improving the relationship is up to Wilcher, not Urban Meyer.  Calling Urban a liar in public media was a very, very stupid career move.

I have to admit I'm not big on permanently staining the skin God gave us.  However, Darron Lee clearly 'gets it'.  For the rest of his life, he can show that tat and describe the 2014 season and National Championship he helped win.  Of all the possible tattoos a kid can get, one memorializing something he'll be proud of for the rest of his life seems the most worthy to my anti-tat old brain.  Darron, you're a star!
