Now it's back on ESPNU.

It's now on ESPN NEWS instead of ESPNU because of tennis going over.

5'10"  185lbs. Played jv and varsity at a small high school in Florida late 60's early 70's. Played on both sides of the line. I came off the bench due to the fact that I was on a talented team. We were state runner up my senior year. I looked into playing at Ohio Wesleyan but decided against it. I worked for awhile and got my associates degree from a community college in Florida. Moved back to Ohio and went to BG in the late 80's to complete my undergraduate degree in education. While there I took a football coaching class. I was pretty good at long snapping and was asked by one of the coaches if I was interested in playing some college ball. By that time I was out of shape and I thought a little too old.

Where I took my first breath. I saw the McCoys when they were known as The Rick Z Combo at the grand opening of Smith's A&W in Union City,OH. I lived about a half block from the Indiana side. I used to tell people that I could hit a baseball from my yard in Ohio all the way to Indiana. Was in Bejiing a few years ago and saw a Rick Derringer guitar at the Hard Rock hanging on the wall.

 Halfway across the world and there was something from my hometown.

My AARP approved Consumer Cellular flip phone works fine.

My family moved to Florida in 1964. My high school coach played for Florida and some of our alums played for UF and FSU. Jeff Demps most recently. I enjoyed watching those teams play and went to a few games at both places while I lived down there. We moved back in 1977. But even with those connections I never gave up my passion for buckeye football. We didn't get much OSU coverage down there back in those days but I lived and died for THE GAME.

Went to Rome in the summer. We stayed at a fairly nice hotel. We were told that the air conditioning was going to be shut off at midnight to save power and money. We thought that they were kidding. They were not.

For just relaxing and doing nothing we like to rent a villa on Siesta Key,FL or rent a cabin on Dale Hollow in Tennessee.

Went to the Jai Lai one time. They scooped the butter. I thought it was ice cream. Was in for quite the surprise when I bit into it. Didn't know people served butter like that.  Needless to say I was a little naive at the time.

I was in China when Toy Story 2 came out in the US. They were trying to sell me copies of it outside a mall in Bejing.

WKRP in Cincinnati. "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."  Best line of all time.

I was the wrestling coach one year at our school in the early 80's. They did believe that. The wrestlers were so indoctrinated with that thought. When I told the guys on the first day of practice to get a drink you would have thought I came down from outer space by the looks I got from them. Some did but there were older wrestlers who were griping behind my back that I didn't know what I was talking about. Took 3 guys to regional that year and 1 to state. Then I got non renewed the following year.

And I thought the more salt pills I took, the better. August in Florida is even lovelier. We did get a small cup of orange juice or water once a day. We would hide a package of Sweetarts in our helmets and eat them when the coaches weren't looking just so we would conjure up some saliva.
