Born in Columbus, family moved to Texas at 3 years old and been here ever since. Dad graduated from Ohio State, so naturally, the choice of my fandom was easy to make.

Let's just say I don't lose sleep when other B1G schools lose, unlike some other people.

Comment 27 Mar 2015
I will never cheer for any other Big Ten school because all they've done is drag Ohio State down over the years.

You, me and DJ are on the same page.

I don't cheer for other B1G schools b/c conference strength in hoops doesn't mean anything. Either your team is good, or it isn't.

I don't cheer for other B1G schools b/c I can't stand most of the other head coaches, including cry-baby Izzo. Ironically, Beilein bothers me the least out of any of them.

In football, it's a little different during bowl season. I don't consciously make an effort to pull for other B1G schools, but I usually find myself backing them, especially against the SEC. I will say that it has almost nothing to do with hoping to prove that the "B1G is better than your conference" BS. Ohio State just disproved the myth of "conference strength" and how much it matters this past season.

I'm still debating whether to let my son play tackle next season, or stick with flag football. Flag seems "safer," but they don't play with ANY protective gear except for a mouth piece.

Comment 25 Mar 2015
I still do not see how you bench a National Title winning QB.  But that is my 2 cents.

Let's not forget that Cardale hasn't had to be "the guy" for an entire season yet, nor has he taken any snaps in a true road game in a hostile crowd. Teams will also have more game film to look at to prepare for him. (You know your team had a good season when the only film they have to watch is of you destroying 3 opponents in 3 consecutive post-season games.)

Not disagreeing with your statement, just giving a different view.

That had to be the shortest interview ever.

Gene: "We want you, and you want OSU."

Urbz: "Where do I sign?"

Been a Buckeye fan for as long as I remember. My fandom continues to grow the older I get.

As for pro teams, I'm all Cleveland, all the time. People who say they are Buckeye fans and Steeler fans at the same time disturb me.

But before Columbus got a team, I pulled pretty hard for the Dallas Stars, although I admittedly don't watch much hockey. The playoffs are a blast to watch though.

Does it count if you only mention them to make fun of them?

Comment 05 Mar 2015

They are both sure as hell better than any wolverine.

Comment 04 Mar 2015

I was sitting high up in the corner of the Oregon endzone during that game. I remember in the 3rd quarter seeing the Bucks run that counter play over and over and over. Watching that play unfold and develop, then watching Zeke dart through the hole on a consistent basis gave me the confidence that we had the game in the bag. I kept saying to myself "now only if we take care of the ball we'll win easily." I was wrong..... we didn't take care of the ball, and STILL won easily. That's domination.

Jalin and/or Dontre won't be the answer to replace Devin Smith. Neither is big enough, and quite frankly, may not be as fast. My pick is Corey Smith. It's time for that dude to step up and contribute on a weekly basis. Despite being awful against V. Tech, he showed flashes of what he can do in the second half of the season. And he proved on more than one occasion to be quite the battering ram while blocking.

Out of the WRs I've seen play, Corey looks to be the closest match to Devin when it comes to physical measurables. Not sure if he's as fast, but he's certainly got the size.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

I recall being frustrated by him a few times (probably due to my overzealous expectations), but he and Tank were two of my favorite players to watch. His game-winner against Sparty is legend.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

Yeah, that dude couldn't hold Sully's jock strap, yet the refs evened out the advantage we had at that position. That, and everyone else having a rough shooting night did us in.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

They played the Austin Spurs when I saw him.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

And they were easily the best team in the country that year. Just had one bad game at the worst possible time.
