I've been a huge OSU fan since I was 7 years old, watching games with my dad and hearing the fans at the horseshoe chant "Eddie, Eddie". Graduated with an accounting degree from the Max M. Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University in 2009. Took a job out of college that moved me to Raleigh, NC for about a year and a half. Currently a financial analyst working for a company in Cleveland, which makes travelling to Columbus for game days much easier. I largely identify myself with Ohio State University and am not ashamed to admit that I get teary-eyed when I hear Carmen Ohio. I hate everything about the state of Michigan, including the fact that it smells like hot dog water.

This sucks for all of the normal kids that earn degrees from UNC because as an employer, I now question any potential employee coming out of that university.  If you are not proficient at writing at a 2nd grade level, yet have a degree with the university name emblazoned on the front, how much can that degree really be worth? 

I'd sooner give up Ohio State's athletics programs than have my beloved university's name and status tainted by a few lazy athletes and the faculty / staff enabling this bullshit.

I hope you learn something.




You are a joke.

Ha rape culture?  I seriously hope that this is a joke.  There is no rape culture.  This would imply that the act of rape is a generally accepted notion by at least a few groups of people.

Oh come on... that comment (while idiotic) was made in 1988.  I think we need to lighten up.  Don't let DJ's fake outrage diatribe get in the way of the real news of the day (Bobby's comments in 2014 - which were spot on).

Spot on... you don't have to agree with someone to love them or show compassion towards them.  There are too many, on both sides of the aisle, trying to pit one group against another.  Media outlets and politicians tend to be the most divisive, as they tend to reap the most benefits as a result.

The short-sitedness of young adults kills me.  Put in 2 years of hard work in college and get a rookie contract with guaranteed money and you're basically set... retire whenever you want and move to Colorado and smoke that albatross for the rest of your life in a financially stable situation.  

Not sure its what Woody had in mind when he said "Pay it Forward" but oh well.  

Comment 28 Jan 2014

Just want to say thank you and great job to the entire 11W staff.  This site makes each and every day better by simply being in existence.  I don't know that I could start my workday without first reading the morning skully with my coffee.

I did too, although I was younger, and I hate UM as much as the next guy, but I admittedly don't take as much joy in beating them when I don't even respect them as a good football program.  

Comment 04 Jan 2014

This is so on point.  Since the PSU game there has been considerable regression... The defense makes me want to cry.  And it's even more frustrating that I can't figure out whether its coaching, schemes, or players just not living up to their ratings.  How do we whiff on so many high profile guys?  

Hopefully Urban's last couple classes bolsters this team in the next couple years.  Trouble is, by the time our defense catches up, whose going to bear the offensive burden... who is going to play QB?
