from the Toledo area. I attend OSU football and basketball games with the same regularity as church, which is once sometimes twice a year. Just got a desk job and found this website very interesting and helps the day go a little faster. Go bucks!

Im of the opinion that this team has to get to 22 wins to get in the tournament with winning at least 3 out of 4 against MSU, Maryland, Indiana and the Buzz Cuts. Any bad losses against those 4 could put the nail in the coffin. Oh how different of a position we'd be in if we beat Northwestern and FAU at home. Those losses will end up being very crucial, as i think they were both very winnable

Heading up to the game tonight. Father in laws friend got 4 tickets somehow. I think he bought a couple of Cokes. Just a quick hour jaunt from here, here's to a Buckeye victory, Go Bucks.

We just had 2 redshirt frosh perform admirably this season in BB Landers (***) and Dre Jones (****). Jones was a DE prospect I know but I am comfortable with our approach converting bigger Ends and with the 3 star guys that have came in. Hamilton was on the field as well as a 3* and was in triple digits at his position coming out of HS according to the experts. I think it is far from a struggle IMO.

I cant help but watch He Got Game every time I see its on tv. Absolutely love that movie. 

On the subject of sports movies, I think The Program is fairly underrated as well, wouldnt mind seeing some sort of modern remake

25th hour starring Edward Norton, also has Phillip Seymour Hoffman,Rosario Dawson,  Anna Pacquin. Tony Siragusa also plays a role in the movie as well. Quality movie. One of my favorites

Honorable mention for me is St. Vincent, Cinderella Man, and The Town

I only hope that one day my son could embarrass me with a 4 year degree from The Ohio State University and be a 4 year letter winner there. Underachieving maybe but far from embarrassing. Same mannerisms that he had in Jr High, sometimes those things don't change.

To me, I just don't see a whole lot of guys that genuinely care if they win or lose. I see some that care if they put up numbers. Conference play at any level is a grind, and you're not going to be successful when you have to grind when you lack the character qualities this team lacks. Its unfortunate, I genuinely care for Ohio State Hoops, always will, they have a great footprint in Toledo, my first jersey I owned was a #22 Jim Jackson knockoff. It hurts to watch this sometimes, but I'll keep watching. Go Bucks

On a more serious note. Good school. Good food, campus Polleyeyes stuffed breadsticks are worth the price of tuition. The new pizza place that took the place of Myles is pretty much the same pizza. A nice bit of diversity for a rural university too. The women are a few notches above UT as well. I did a paper on the whole STD myth involving BG, and it's exactly that, a myth. And you can't spell sluts without UT

OSU baseball hosted one of the top sophomores in the state of Ohio today in Toledo Central Catholic INF Jase Bowen. An unofficial visit, he's also visited MSU, ttun, and Duke. Was Centrals leading receiver this year as well.

Ive worked a very wide variety of shifts at the local monopoly..er health system, and can tell you from personal experience that I would jump on 4 10's on the drop of a dime. I currently work monday thru friday 9-530 and am absolutely miserable with the hours. I came from working 3 12's but every other weekend. I picked up so much OT working 12's because i had more chances to come in on days off even with taking my youngest out of full time daycare to part time. I would feel like I could conquer the world with that day off during the week nowadays. 

My first job with this company was four 10's every other weekend with every Monday and Friday off. So that has a lot to do with IMO why I enjoyed 4 10's so much. 

Comment 25 Jan 2017

A couple of differences IMO and are fairly significant. Main one is communication. I don't think Sibley and Clark were told to look around to see if the fit is right. I believe OSU's staff was more honest with parties involved. Not saying that telling/asking a verbal commitment to gray shirt is better than what transpired in AA but I kind of think it's less shady, but still not right. 

2nd, i was unaware that Bruce Judson was ever committed to OSU. If he was, ouch, committed to a team and the coach doesn't recognize who you are, that is a tough pill to swallow.

No doubt, he was getting upward of 30 sometimes 40 carries a game at the high school level on the best team in the area. Bart Tanski comes to mind, qb from Mentor a few years back, quality high school qb who ended up as I believe a walk-on at BGSU
