Truly remarkable, UFM has really outdone himself. Two more wins in the next month and I will be in such hysterics I may never recover.

jimmy stewart repping my pseudo family always makes me feel good, especially in that kind of positive connotation, but 1. vertigo 2. rear window 3. its a wonderful life, just my opinion. jimmy stewart is fantastic. but 1-3 is extremely close

I also was at that game, I think the Spitler roughing the punter was the death knell, but that was the third quarter if I remember correctly.  But playing LSU in the superdome is so tough it's unfair.  The day before the game it was 90/10 buckeye fans on bourbon street, I woke up the next morning and go outside and it was 80/20 lsu fans.  Homefield crowd, the BIGGEST reason for SEC success over the Big Ten in bowl games in my humble opinion (that and SECheat speed of course, but bowl slotting issues where the SEC team is always higher ranked is another factor, don't tell SECrap fan that though). Time for bowl games in cold weather, if equity were valued as opposed to winter destination travel the B1G would fare much much better.

I bet Bosa shrugs all the time now. At chipotle when they ask him if he wants chips and salsa, when he receives gifts from family members at Christmas, when he's asked if he wants fries with that, if he's pulled over for speeding and the cop says "do you know why I pulled you over?"

What a monster, you know you've made it when you don't have to say anything to get everyone's attention.

Yeah logistics is a problem, inequity based on importance of games or the teams involved is another. I like the idea of an annual stipend to all parents to use as they see fit to go to whatever game(s) they see fit. That way a mom can go see a game at a family member's house in a certain city or a bowl game whatever they chose. If they are thrifty maybe two games, but leave it up to them

I think that solves a bigger problem of the parents of players on teams that aren't in a bowl game, the potential inequities are likely stumbling blocks for implementation of these types of policies.

I still love the idea of a bunch of look alikes, but I am a modest individual and wouldn't ever wear a stupid outfit like any of these guys do.  I agree that all the superfans needs to be subject to the look alike tactic as it would better demonstrate the general problem and not the individual. 

Personally what I would do is to tell him his actions embarrass me, plead with him to stop doing what he is doing and have some pride in himself. Or I might tell him to go be Wolverguy or Badgerino or Timmy Tide or Trojan Man and embarrass those fan bases, and that I would be a big fan if he did that. He could be like a secret agent.

Definitely overthinking it, but that is how my brain works. I'm not advocating anything drastic and tried to be tongue-in-cheek, as I tried to reiterate in my diatribe. But using your logic why do you care if I don't like him and how he longs for attention? It is a trait I find distasteful and detracts from the student athletes and the university, which is what really deserves attention.  It  may or may not affect how people view the university but it certainly doesn't help, especially seeing other comments in the thread about his rude behavior and him charging for photos, appearances or whatever.

I care about The Ohio State University and how it is viewed in a broader sense, especially in regard to people with little knowledge about what and who we are, not only as OSU fans but as Ohioans, I don't want them to get the wrong idea that we are flashy and lack substance (he hasn't changed in ten years plus and certainly seems to me to be seeking attention like the Kardashians or Hiltons, I don't want OSU or Columbus to have a Hollywood feel, that's not who we are). I feel he is just a "LAM" (a look at me person), I don't respect that and I am extremely tired of seeing him on TV.  I think it is akin to a person on twitter writing anti OSU stuff just to get followers, or a guy putting on a loud exhaust or taking off his restrictor plate on his motorcycle so everyone looks at him when he drives down the road. I'm just some dude that really loves Ohio State and I don't think he helps it, that's why I care.

You are entitled to your opinion, and I appreciate it. I hope that answers your question.

That's my favorite movie of all time.

I like upvotes, but this was catharsis for me after seeing that wretched promo.

Comment 10 Dec 2014

I will take my medicine if I have acted inappropriately. Just wanted to open a dialogue to solving a problem that has irked me for quite some time.  This problem will never lessen my affinity for TOSU.

To quote Cup from the real Transformers movie, not that Michael Bay crap, "Experience Lad, you should learn to appreciate it."

I am thrilled with recent success, in my opinion it is sweeter having lived through the 90s and having Biakabutuka be a swear word in my house.  I'd trade experience for youth (more youth I guess) but I do think that without context it is difficult for a person to truly get anything.  But don't worry you will get older soon and you may feel differently.  No doubt you are great fans who love your buckeyes as much as anyone.

Not meant as an insult at all, be glad you didn't have to suffer through the 90s buckeyes it was tough, except when they played Rice.

The PG dilemma sure is interesting.  I believe that in most circumstances a PG that isn't a Kyrie Irving type (#1 overall in the draft or at least top couple) leaves after his first year UNLESS he makes a deep NCAA run and is a huge part of his teams success (Conley Jr., Burke come to mind).  If that's the case and we make a final four run or better I wish D'Angelo the best, short of that I hope he comes back to polish his game a bit.  Of course I am only right 99% of the time.

Comment 15 Nov 2014

lots of thoughts.

first, love urban sticking with jalin marshal.

second, hair splitting time, we win by 30 if no special team turnovers, how much weight does the playoff committee give that?

third is our win over minny more convincing than tcu's over minny?

my answer to two and three is i dont know

Savic certainly was interesting.  I was fortunate enough to play golf at Muirfield and it was widely understood that after Jack, Savic was the next most important guy in the place.  He played a lot of golf when I was there and was kind of intimidating and gruff (what do you expect from a WW2 vet though), but he was treated with reverence and I definitely shied away from him.  From my understanding Nicklaus is/was essentially his best friend.  Savic was a member of the Captains Club if I remember correctly (others included Sean Connery, Gerald Ford and I think George H.W. Bush).  Certainly Central Ohio owes a lot to him.

According to wikipedia, Savic gained 16 total yards rushing and passing in the '49 Rose Bowl (581 passing yards for the season).  Fascinating

So I think venues are only as good as the games that you see there bc atmosphere is a fickle beast.  So I will list my favorite away games/venues in context of what I saw.

1.) OSU v. Miami 2003 ASU.  Setting atmosphere and game make this probably the best Buckeye game I will see ever, regardless of what else happens in the next 5o years I'm alive.

2.) OSU at PSU, 2012.  Great setting, night game, white out.  Passionate fans on the brink of suicide in the immediate wake of JoePa made the visit very interesting.  There were people holding vigil over the old location of the JoePa statue, very peculiar.

3.) OSU at Wisky 2003.  Yeah we lost but in dramatic fashion in the rain.  Wisconsin is a great place to see a game, great venue.  Too bad I am 0-2 there.

4.)  Osu at MSU 2012:  Great redemptive win, cool little stadium, good tailgating.

Honorable Mention:   2002 OSU at Purdue-don't care that Ross-Ade sucks most Saturdays, this one did not and was the most exciting finish, except maybe the 2003 NC game, I've ever seen.  Holy Buckeye were those Boiler fans pissed when Buckeye fans congregated after the game in the stands and did our celebratory thing (Carmen Ohio etc.) they started throwing beer bottles, full water bottles at us.  I was in College at the time enjoyed the fervor, especially from the angry Boiler fans (still like the whole Boiler Up thing).

2002 OSU at Illinois:  Overtime thriller, again.  Probably one of the last times Illini fans felt that kind of passion and anguish.  Plus a great game.

Others I've liked included Cleveland Browns stadium for the game against Toledo I think a few years ago.  Didn't like the Big House (toilet bowl seats too tight).  Sun Life Stadium for Miami FL OSU regular season game was a stinker.  I saw games at the Swamp and that venue is great except in the early season everyone reeks from B.O. by the time the second quarter starts.  Saw an overtime game in Notre Dame a few years back when they played UW and Washington, that was fun too except it was pouring rain by the end of it.

Just a few thoughts.  But my true favorite is the 'Shoe.  So many more great games seen there.
