  • 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'm from Springfield as well. Went to both North and South (always a Wildcat). In fact went to school with Treys mom (we were not fans if each other). I'm thinking his family are scUM fans so I wasn't shocked when he went with Tuscalucifer over to Good Guys. I know what you mean about the schools being gone. I went to Elmwood, Grayhill, Clark and Franklin as well as both high schools. Only Elmwood is left, but hasn't been a school in awhile. I was there in August and went to South's open house because they are gutting that building as well. Broke my freakin heart. Cried the whole time I was walking thru the building.

My disdain for Herbie is well documented here, but it bears repeating. Not only did he rank Arkansas above us in the final poll after we beat them, he also was downright giddy outing the Tat-5 situation on primetime while simultaneously telling the nation to give Cam Newton the benefit of the doubt until all the evidence in his situation was out. It was also particularly disgusting that he blamed Buckeye fans for his relocation to Tennessee, despite the fact that his house had been on the market for some time at that point.

I know there is a fringe element of our fan base that can be, let's say, a bit overwhelming; however, simply making comments on TV about our schemes, or where we make lack depth or something of that nature would probably not raise the ire of those folks (maybe some because I am sure every fan base has a tree poisoner waiting to happen).

I think those of us who do not care for Herbie are legitimate in their feelings as I am sure he has supporters whose feelings are just as valid. I do disagree with DJ though, it is not at all hard to figure out why there is a portion of the Nation who do not care for frosty-locks. We took beating after beating after beating during Tat-gate and Herbie sat silent. Or worse, he opened his mouth and offered more criticism. The ESPN viewing audience can cheerlead his version of objectivity all day, I'm sorry I'm not sorry for expecting more from one of our, um, distinguished alum during some of our darkest hours in recent memory.

I don't think the name makes much difference because when someone replies to one of my comments I am usually referred to as 'him' or 'he', lol.

Not sure how many ladies are still here lurking around. This site has grown exponentially since I first discovered it (my profile has the year you sign up, but I had to reset my account once, so I'm not sure when exactly I started visiting, but I know it was before the date). I was then joined by Pam and I think it was the two of us for awhile--we even got a shout-out in a Skully once! I haven't seen Pam around here much in a few years, but I'm pretty sure in addition to BamaMike's wife, we also have a woman in Idaho Helga.

I don't post as much as I used to (I know that I am just a few stickers away from The Premium Lounge, so I am exited about that!) but its mostly because with the growth of the 11W Community, but the time I get to an article, someone has usually expressed my thoughts for me. I still visit multiple times a day and simply could not fully enjoy Buckeye football without this site and all of you!

#10. I feel it's time. It's from the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. Haven't touched it since. Thinkin the Urban full circle magic may be working this season.

How about another fundraiser to see if we can outbid the ole Gazette and keep our guy? I'd be willing to donate at least my premium membership dues to keep Kyle. I'm (sorta) kidding of course. I know we will all miss Kyle tremendously. Good luck Buckeye Brother. I'm sure you know you'll always have a home.

I was wondering if I should wait until after the season starts. Sounds like a good plan. Appy State is coming to town after all....

This view looks fantastic on the website, but I don't see any obstruction and that makes me nervous.
Comment 29 Jul 2014
Thanks everyone. Looks like I'm going to have to spend the extra money. But honestly, is there any better way to spend it? I'll probably be back with some more questions as the game gets closer. Been almost 20 years since I've been to a game. Any thoughts on the Varsity Inn? It was the closest place to the stadium I could find.

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.
