Football's the greatest sport on the planet; it's a religion brought on from my family upbringing. My second love is rugby, b/c I played in college. My professional sports loyalties lie with all Cleveland teams, however, I grew up visitng family in Phoenix; so the AZ teams have always been #2. Should my Ohio teams ever play an AZ team, I always go with my first love, the O-H, as I like to refer to her. My Alma Mater is Kent State, so I'll always have love for what their teams accomplish. However, I grew up in a very large Irish Catholic family that lived, breathed, ate, and drank Ohio State football. So long before I ever took my first class at Kent, I was a diehard Buckeye fan through and through.

After the Indiana win I began to feel better about this basketball team. After what I watched last night; I feel like this team can compete in the BIG tourney and make a real push come March.

Just repeat last nights performance...over and over and over..etc

Go Bucks!

No. It's my belief that Meyer's psychological edge lies with 18- 22 yr old young men. His coaching prowess comes from the abilty to inspire these kids and get the absolute best out of them. The NFL is an entirely different beast in my opinion...

On the other hand I could still see him as successful as Harbaugh was with the 49ers. However, I still say he's best suited in Columbus where he can rack-up a few more titles over the next decade and become the second coming of Woody Hayes. Let's hope for the latter.

Quite possibly the greatest 48 hrs in Buckeye history. Putting a whooping on Oregon for the Natl Title, despite four turnovers. Unreal; then stomping *ichigan at home 17 1/2 hrs later. Fu*king awesome!

I went in for a few hours this morning b/c I had to get a few things done. After lunch I had a "Doctors Appointment", that would take up my entire afternoon. Beers, brats, and Buckeyes tonight, baby!

DePriest got hit so hard he forgot he was from Ohio for a minute and didn' t feel so bad about getting stomped by his home town team. #GoBucks

Keep underestimating TOSU and we'll keep waxing that ass! Down goes Bama! Down goes Bama! Bucks vs Ducks. Bring it Oregon! I'll take us as the underdog every damn day!

Stay down shit heads. I'm literally fine with ANY OTHER school in the BIG improving. Let them go out and win out-of-conference games to improve the Big Tens reputation.

Well, the BIG10 screwed the pooch again, folks. Obviously Ohio State has to follow the BIG protocols, which has it's noted number of flaws. It's just unfortunate to see a kid, who was a good student-athlete, make a couple mistakes, then that's it, goodbye, kicked off the team for good.

I completely agree with what Coach Meyer said. Dismissing a kid should be a very last resort. Noah wasn't a cancer to the team. He made some mistakes that harmed himself. I just don't feel it warranted a permanent dismissal.

He needs guidance and council. He needs his brothers, as I hear so many of the players on the team refer to one another. Its bullshit, plain and simple. I mean, damn, it's college. Plenty of us did our fair share of dumb shit in our early college years.

Best of luck to the young man. Hopefully we see him playing on Sundays.

In my opinion, Twitter is bad for student athletes. Even with it being used as a recruitment tool. Just hear me out...or read me out. Whichever.

Let's say, hypothetically, it were the 90s. Before all the social media craziness. Jalin doesn't hear a word from anyone other than the coaching staff, his teammates, and maybe some close friends and family outside the game. They pick him up, dust him off, and get his head straight to give him the confidence to not make the same mistake again. Plug in 2014s social media circus and this kid is reading hate tweets from idiot fans. This can most definitely claw at a 19 yr old kids psyche.

Maybe I'm too old school. I'm 31 and do not have a twitter, nor will I ever. People talking online about the most random things happening in their lives on a day to day basis is kinda strange to me. I have Facebook and I think it's OK. I use it to keep in touch with old friends and family, but even Facebook is too much sometimes.

The problem will always be there. It's something else a coaching staff has to focus on, all-the-while pulling away from their coaching duties. Because in addition to picking the kid up after the actual fumble in the game. Now the coaching staff has to deal with aftermath of the Twitter-verse backlash against the young man. It's a shame, really.

Keep your head up, Jalin. Don't listen to the idiots! Go Bucks!

Ahh, I see what you did there...

If that should happen, I'm sure Gopher fans won't take it EzE...

I'll be here all night, folks.
