  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 Nat'l Championship game. In Columbus at Champs Sports Bar (I live in Florida, so this was a last minute trip and the only place I could find -- luckily I am kinda cute and was able to secure a seat in a standing room only place). When we won, I jumped up and down so hard I pee'd myself. I also think I got kissed by about three different strange men (being kinda cute is a blessing and a curse I suppose).

I was so desperate to leave Springfield that I got on a plane 4 hour after graduation for Chicago. I was a nanny for a year, but came home and went to college. The day of my last final, I jumped in a moving truck and headed south. That was 1998 and I've been here ever since. I love Ohio. My family is still here and I make the 900 mile drive 3-4 times a year. No matter what, when I'm crossing the Ohio River on I-75, I get all giddy when I see that 'Ohio Welcomes You' sign. My daughter starts college in the fall. tOSU was always the plan, but some health issues are keeping her close to home. She and I frequently talk about going home once she finishes medical school. She was born in Ohio, but we moved when she was just 3--but make no mistake--she is Ohio thru and thru. I am always amazed how many Buckeyes are here in Panama City. I guess sometimes clichés are just snazzy ways of telling the raw truth: you take a person out of Ohio, but you can never take Ohio out of the person.

I am seeing some discussion about police procedures related to searching cars between suspects and such. I would like to share my observations having been on scene as a first responder with different levels of law enforcement dozens of times. I have not ever seen a law enforcement vehicle searched between suspects. The reason being is that each person is searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the back of the vehicle. Simple as that. NO ONE goes in the back of the car unsearched and/or unsecured. Would be very difficult for Sprinkle to remove the drugs from where he was holding them and then hide them in the car if he was handcuffed. And if he wasn't? Well, if an officer had that large a lapse in judgment, the likely procedural errors alone will make it almost impossible to convince a state attorney to push the charge through. I just don't see a scenario that ends in an actual charge being pursued.

Remember, the scene was described as mayhem. I'm not saying that Law Enforcement didn't do their job or that they did anything to compromise the public safety or anything along those lines. I love those men and women. I just know from experience that sometimes when the sh*t is going down procedural mistakes can be made. From a legal standpoint, this creates a large amount of wiggle room in a criminal case. The more wiggle room, the less likely the charge. Now, this is good news for Sprinkle. If of course it wasn't his cocaine. If it was, well, that's the really bad part of what happens when small procedural things get over-looked; the bad guy gets away with it and doesn't the help they need or the punishment they deserve.

And for those who are jumping on the 'rush to judgment' freight train, do you recall that one time Carlos Hyde beat up that girl because someone drew a picture of it? Yeah, me neither. Calm down and see what happens.

My daughter's high school started the 'I Believe' chant at football games this past year. I like it. Gets the crowd really pumped.

My guess is the weapons used by the Viper had poisoned tips, the Mountain dies and the Imp is saved because it was technically a draw.

He hasn't visited yet and yet we're still not in last place. I think it's a bit early for the 'we don't want him anyway' talk. Let's see where we stand after he, you know, actually visits Columbus.

Springfield is no vacation destination, but those of us from there are proud of it. Saying 'from the Dayton area' seems like a slight to what we affectionately call The Field.
Comment 13 May 2014
Don't forget me! Glad to see a Buckeye back on the Bills. Clements, Whitner, Youboty come most readily to mind when I think about how many Bucks have played for my Bills. Couldn't have asked for a better player to go to Buffalo! #BillsMafia

Didn't this happen because of Tressel? Don't tell me you honestly believe Herbie dropped us in his final poll bc of Tatgate. Or bc he was sleepy. It's called PANDERING. And I have no respect for it or for him.

You sure? I thought it was just they couldn't tie Cam to it. Even so, pretty sure it was determined his services were solicited-and the attempt is a clear violation-money changing hands or not. And I would love if he would do his job. The job if objectivity. How is going out of your way to demean your school (for your personal gain) any different than being an unapologetic homer?
Comment 21 Apr 2014
A lot of people outside the south felt maybe Auburn should not play for a title during the Cam Newton situation, but what did that matter? That's a poor excuse. And speaking of Cam, I remember Herbie imploring all of cfb to wait until all the evidence was out before rushing to judgement on Cam's matter. However, he practically tripped over his frosty - locks to out the Tat 5 situation during a prime time game. You think I want Herbie to be viewed like this? Hell no. I'm pissed he goes out of his way to look so impartial-as if it gives him some kind of auto-credibility in his role on TV. You know what it does? Among other things, it forces folks like me who live in the south to hear one more example of why we suck so bad - our own alums don't have our back (heard this countless times).
Comment 21 Apr 2014
I have plenty to say about Herbie, but I'll go with the obvious: was it impartiality that placed us below the Razorbacks in his final poll AFTER we beat them in the bowl game? Just one valid explanation of that, and I'll change my opinion.

Just because he didn't talk to NCAA, doesn't make the leak any less 'traitorous'. Not saying he did leak or anything, just saying if he did, that's a little on the traitor-y side. Besides, if Posey can forgive him, I'm sure we all can.

Saw something similar a few weeks ago involving the punter from FSU. At a well known local restaurant, the player was with a group of friends. At the end of the meal, he called one of the owners over to the table and asked for the entire check to be comped. To the owners credit, he declined as said that would be an NCAA violation. He did, however discount the bill) pretty sure it's the same thing). I was struck how unabashedly the player asked-there was ZERO shame or hesitation in it. Something tells me it's fairly routine.

I think this belief stems from the DiGeronimo (sp) incident. It occurred reaaaaaly close to him being declared ineligible for the following season and allowed to enter the supplemental draft. Or something like that. Can't remember the details, but I seem to remember some debate over this once upon a time.

I guess I meant the right decision for us. Heres to hoping he takes his parents opinion of the situation and uses It as a motivation to prove them incorrect.

I have no doubt it was a bad scene for him, but Columbus has the same elements. Unless or until he decides he wants to make better decisions it doesnt matter where he goes. Changing your scenery does not change your situation.

This had high drama written all over it. Would have liked to have had the kid, but I feel like it would have been a headache down the road in some way. 

Not everyone grows up a Buckeye fan, but some do fall in love with the campus, the staff, the atmosphere, etc and want to be a Buckeye. I love 5 star athletes, but I love 5 star hearts more. I wish him well and I think he made the right decision.
