Grew up in a small town, went to OU and now buy coal for a large utility. I used to work at a power plant, now I buy nearly 20M tons per year. I have the largest CO2 footprint of ANYONE on 11W and I like Bacon probably more than you.

..... and his son.  Although not the stellar linebacker, I believe he did start one year. I will always remember Pagac with his lower lip extended due to a tobacco product residing there.

Trust an opposing teams fan for directions?  I'll take my chances with Waze thank you.  Although I am not going this weekend, I would use that App and zombie myself into Bloomington with the help of others.

Yeah, the Korean War Pig is amazing.  If you want a huge burger though, get to Thurmons in the German Village by 4:30.  Get the Great 3 with Bacon.

Recommend the Ocean Club at Easton.  I prefer the Blackened Snapper but it is all good.  If you have to do steak over there, hit up Smith & Wolensky. Very good steaks.  Another option is to let your local guy pick.

I wonder if anyone uses "Lunatic Fringe" by Red Rider for its entrance/sports song?  I can't recall hearing it and it sure has a intro.  Also, I wonder if anyone from OSU in the media field reads these boards?

Love the Scanners reference.  1981 was a long time ago, but if you yield that power time stands still. That or you make someone's head blow up.  I totally agree with the defensive statement, they are winning games for the team right now. For some reason (house money?) the offense seems unfocused.  It could be that we experienced such a rally around Cardale last year that just playing normal seems poor.  The turnovers do worry me though, it didn't look like they were 'quality' ones as a result of a great defensive play.

oh well, keep winning and keep getting better.

Sounds like a group of people showing up at the King Avenue Parking lot might be able to throw something together and take donations.  I can bring bacon.

Comment 15 Sep 2015

Wait, you are asking us to not ask questions or to comment on something by commenting on it?  Isn't that sort of ironic?  Maybe you just wanted to be the one starting another string of questions/comments concerning the QB situation?  Perhaps your subconscious took over and you didn't even realize what ended up being posted?  Maybe, just maybe you got into DJs secret stash for Four Loco and posted this  in a drunken haze after 32 straight hours awake?  Maybe I posted this without addressing the QB situation directly?  

Comment 13 Sep 2015

I think this one was a throw away game.  With the 3 days to prepare and a 'weaker' yet still FBS school, the staff was looking to get by with a win and no injuries.  Except for Miller seeming to favor his right shoulder a few times, I can't remember any other injuries through my margarita induced haze.

Comment 08 Sep 2015

To me the impressive thing was the timing of it.  It's not like it was an open field spin move.  This one was done within a small window created by Elliot's block.  When looked at in full speed, you appreciate it more than the GIF posted. I think of all the plays I have been really impressed with over the past 5 or 10 years and Braxton Miller is 75% - 80% of them.

I think you lean to some Ohio Boys and let the Black Keys Gold on the Celiling work it.  After all, isn't their some gold roses 45 of them) on the portico?

Comment 06 Sep 2015

What was Hackenberg's line?  Something like 100 yards passing, 50% completion, 1 int., -51 yards rushing.  That's all kinds of crazy bad.  Looks like the NFL just dissolved and reformed to spell Canada. 

Comment 05 Sep 2015

Absolutely.  It's crazy that they value life less than injury.

Comment 05 Sep 2015

I agree. I think that is mainly due to the offensive line playing much better.  Last year, we didn't run well and couldn't protect the QB.  I look for us to run and have a much improved protection plan.  Watch for a lot of "getting the ball to players in space" type of plays.

Although not all of the OSU teams were as good as the '98 team, the other 1990's teams all seemed to fall at the hands of the evil empire that Lloyd Carr was running up north.  Each and every loss in that decade burned into my cortex causing wincing when a memory is activated through electrical stimulus.  Sometimes this is brought on by a song, sometimes a TV show, other times it is someone mentioning Cooper's unfortunate record. On the bright side, I am eternally acclimated to future losses and definitely agree with DJs 'house money' approach to 2015.  Enjoy the ride (like in 2003) and smile knowing that there can be only One First Champion of the National Championship Tournament and that honor belongs to the Buckeyes.
